Sorry for the MIA. I've been experiencing the jet setting life in Asia for my birthday. But now that I'm back and have recovered from my major jet lag, I'm ready to post some of my adventures. I spent 13 days visiting Bangkok, Hong Kong and Taipei and I had the most amazing time. The weather was pretty hot in all 3 countries so I'm glad I had a handful of easy breezy rompers to wear.

P.S. when I say "pretty hot" I mean step outside insta-sweat hot.

What I Wore: Romper: Shop Tobi | Bag: Gucci | Sunnies: Zero UV | Booties: Missguided

Fashion Tip: Even if they tell me rompers are no longer in style, I'm not sure I'll ever stop wearing them. They are literally an insta-outfit. It's the easiest thing to throw on. It's flattering and easily layered. Rompers are easy transition items because of the different cuts, prints and styles that are available.

I wore this little number in Hong Kong. Even though it has long sleeves, the material is super lightweight and very breezy. It was the perfect outfit to walk around and shop in. You know living in OC, I never realized how little I actually WALK. I don't use the metro and I rarely walk to any destination but ever since I started traveling more, I realized how much of a bubble I'm really in. I've gotten to travel here and there within the U.S. and that's great, but seeing how other people around the world live and function is on an entirely different experience. I totally get now why some people get the travel bug and never want to stop.

I have a couple trips lined up before the end of the year, so stay tuned for my next adventures. In the meantime, I'll slowly start posting some travel pics and tips of where to go.

It's almost the end of October and we're finally starting to see and feel some Fall weather. Can you believe that we had 100 degree weather this past week? That's insane. But I suppose that's the perk of living in sunny Orange County - it's always sunny! Now that we're slowly getting into the FALL SEASON, lets talk about what some must-have items are!

What I Wore: Skirt: Banana Republic (ON SALE NOW!) | Sunnies: Zero UV | Hat: Forever 21 | Bag: Saint Laurent | Shoes: Qupid Shoes

Fashion Tip: I am a big fan of accessories so adding hats to any outfit is a plus for me. Berets are extremely trendy this season. Berets and cabby hats are great accessories to have and they're inexpensive so it's a fun trendy piece to purchase.

Now that it makes more sense to talk FALL FASHION, lets talk about my top 5 MUST-HAVE items:

1. Nude turtleneck - Nothing is easier to just throw on or layer with than a turtleneck. Def a fave for me during fall/winter.
2. Pencil skirt - I love having a sleek pencil skirt that I can dress up or down. It can be paired with booties (as seen in this post), strappy heels or high boots. It's a great piece to have to mix and match with.
3. Boyfriend blazer - Classic piece that easily transitions through any season.
4. Black booties - Fall is the ultimate boot season. The kitten heel has made it's comeback. Not only is it back in style, but it's comfortable to wear long term. You should 100% have a good pair of black booties on your list.
5. Poncho - Lst but not least is a poncho. This might not be everyone's style, but I am a fan of anything that I can just throw on and walk out the door. I am probably one of the laziest "fashionista's" I've ever met and I dislike outfits that require too much work to maintain. That's where this amazing poncho comes in. It's soft and comfortable and super stylish.

There you have it. My top 5 items that you'll be seeing me wear this Fall. I am currently in love with this gray skirt and red beret combo, so I'm sure I'll be repeating this outfit again. This is the start of the holiday season. Before you know it, it'll be Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and then New Years! Time sure does fly. I can't believe we're so close to the end of 2017!

Happy Friday, happy shopping (Banana Republic is currently having an additional 50% sale SALE right now!) and have a great weekend!

Hi everyone! It's my birthday month and I'm currently in Asia celebrating (blog posts coming soon), but I wanted to share my birthday dinner outfit because I totally loved it.

What I Wore: Two piece maxi set: Shop Tobi | Bag: Saint Laurent

Fashion Tip: Whenever I'm feeling a little wider, bloated and fluffier than usual, I just add a jacket over whatever I'm wearing. And you don't have to actually wear it, just casually leave it on your shoulders.

October is my favorite month because it officially starts feeling like FALL, I love the pumpkin patches and it's my birthday month! It's been a great month of celebrating with friends and family and I'm on an Asia trip with my boyfriend. We're visiting Bangkok, Hong Kong and Taipei before heading back to Orange County. Asia has been amazing so far and I can't wait to share my foodie adventures with you.

You can shop similar outfits like mine here.

BACK TO BLACK

I've always been a fan of anything and all things black, mainly because it makes me feel skinnier, but this is usually around the time that I start wearing darker colors. This Fall I'm obsessing over anything black, burgundy, red and mustard. On a lighter note, I won't stop rocking the rose pinks or rust oranges either. So I guess I'm just going to continue wearing almost all the colors then.

What I Wore: Sunnies: ZeroUV | Dress: Shop Tobi | Booties: Qupid Shoes

Fashion Tip: Booties for Fall is 100% necessary. Why? Because they go with everything.

So my birthday month is coming up and I'm super excited. My biggest plan this year is going to Asia with my boyfriend. I've never been so I'm pretty pumped to go. We're going to Bangkok, Hong Kong and Taiwan. If you have any recommendations, feel free to leave them in the comments. I've been watching a ton of YouTube videos on where to eat and what to eat. So excited for all the good food that I'll be chowing down on next month. Also, other exciting news. My sister is about to pop out her second kid. I'm going to be an auntie again! Can't wait.

So my plan for Asia is to pack light because I looked up the weather and it's going to be HOT! HOT! HOT! I'm going to pack light dresses, cute rompers and maybe some joggers Either way, I can't wait to soak in all the culture in Asia.

Have a great week everyone!

It's officially wedding season and there's nothing I love more than witnessing two lovebirds say "I do" to forever. I wore this little number to my friend's wedding at Montage in Laguna Beach and it was a hit. Everyone loved the color and the thigh high slit on this dress.

What I Wore: Dress: Shop Tobi | Heels: Qupid

Fashion Tip: Simplicity is best. Sometimes the dress is just enough so if I'm adding accessories, I want to stick with one item. I've been obsessed with statement earrings lately, so I tend to pair my evening gowns with earrings.

I think there's always something about weddings that make me feel a little something. I don't usually get emotional but I feel extra happy when I'm at a wedding. Everything is just so lovely. The flower arrangements, the table decor and the location is all so beautiful when it comes together. I especially love seeing the bride for the first time in her wedding dress and even more excited to see how the groom looks when he sees her walking towards him. I think that's the cutest moment. Everyone around me is either getting married or popping out babies and I'm just trying to get through the week lol. But when I am a guest at these weddings, I do wonder what I'll want when I get married. Right now, I'm thinking my boyfriend and I are going to elope. No wedding, reception. Just me and him and wherever we decide to get hitched at is the plan. Lol, we're not there yet but that sounds a lot easier doesn't it?

Anyways, I've had a lot of questions regarding this dress. The slit is cut perfectly where you don't have to hold on to it the whole time thinking it'll fly open exposing your goodies. The material is super soft and the dress itself isn't too binding where it makes you feel fat. Overall this is one of my favorite wedding guest dresses to date. You can find more options here.

To all the lovely couples that just got married, a huge congratulations to you and your significant other on your big day. Wishing you all the happiness in the world! Cheers!

TRANSITION FROM SUMMER TO FALL

It's finally starting to feel a little bit like Fall. I'm thinking pumpkin spice lattes and gloomy nights. I love the transition time from Summer to Fall. Time to layer up, break out your boots and booties and wear your pea coats and leather jackets. I love gearing up for the holidays! It's usually around this time that I really feel the whole "time flies" concept. Before you know it, it's Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas then New Years. Lets make the best of the rest of this year! Today, I'm going to share my one Summer to Fall transition secret that makes it uber easy for me to easily style the clothes that I have for changing seasons.

What I Wore: Romper: Tobi | Sunnies: Zero UV | Jacket: H&M | Booties: Qupid Shoes

Fashion Tip: So here's my easy peasy Summer to Fall transition tip. Just add a leather jacket and black booties to any outfit and BAM! you're ready for a Fall look. That's easy right? Rompers are such a good investment because you can literally wear it any day of any season as long as you accessorize properly. So as you can see here, I've simply added a jacket and booties to my super cute striped romper and called it a day.

I want to keep the victims of Harvey and Irma in our thoughts and prayers. Also want to send positive thoughts to those affected by the massive earthquake and fires. With so much going on, we need to come together to help those in need. I just volunteered yesterday with Second Harvest Food Bank at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. They are collecting items for Hurricane Harvey relief until Thursday night. They are giving away 4 tickets to games for anyone who brings 5 or more items. If you are in the area, please do a drop off. We have to believe that all contributions of time or money, big or small will help those in need.

Small acts, when multiplied bu millions of people can transform the world. Be good, do good.

SUMMER STAPLES WITH BANANA REPUBLIC

First of all, I'd like to send prayers and positive thoughts to those in Houston. Please stay safe.

It's always hard to start writing about fashion and styling when there's other serious things going on in the world. I have friends and family in Houston, Dallas and Austin so it was worrisome to hear about the flooding. I'm glad you're all safe.

Today's post will be about my summer staples and how I styled them. I hope you enjoy!

Photographer babe: @marilynnoir

What I Wore: Top: Banana Republic | Clutch: Melie Bianco | Heels: Steve Madden | Jacket: Forever 21 | Sunnies: Zero UV

Fashion Tip: One of my favorite items to have in my closet is a good cami tank. They're the easiest article of clothing to layer and depending on how deep the plunge of the neckline is, it can be very sexy as well. For this outfit, I added a denim jacket for a casual feel and honestly I get cold so easily I always need a light jacket.

I've been loving light and neutral colors lately so I paired this green cami top with white jeans and nude heels. I could've easily paired this top with leggings or denim jeans but white just seemed more spring time fresh! Also, this bamboo clutch is all the rage right now so I definitely had to add that accessory to tie the outfit together.

When shopping for cami's fit and flare are very important to me. I like to look for loose fitting tops with length that hits just below the waistline. I like to half tuck my tops. When a cami is too short, it always throws off the proportions. The BR top that I'm wearing in this post is super cute because it's tiered and has a nice little flare at the end. The floral print is perfect for a seasonal transition with an added knit cardigan or coat so I'm looking forward to repeating this outfit again.

Items on heavy rotation this summer: this green cami top, bamboo clutch & reflective sunnies. I literally cannot go wrong with these items. All easily styled, easily worn and easily transitioned. The top can be worn with leggings, denim jeans, a skirt or shorts. It can be layered with a jacket, duster or flannel. The sunnies aren't too feminine or too edgy and the bag is fun and flirty - perfect for summer.

With everything that has been going on in life, I just want to take a moment to be thankful for every blessing I have and that there isn't anything more I can ask for. Thank you for reading!
