*polka dots with a pop of pink*

polka dot outfit, black white polka dots, pink sandals

nothing super exciting to say about my outfit today…except to comment on the origin of my polka dotted shirt.  you see, i pulled it out of the drawer & have *NO* idea where it came from.  haven’t gone shopping, thrifting or to a clothing swap recently, so no.clue.what.so.ever.  oh well…super cute right?

*white out*

all white outfit, white dress, white jean jacket

like florals for spring, all white for summer is not *that* revolutionary, but don’t we just love it!  i’ve always been a big fan of all white outfits & it’s been my personal mission to bring back the white pantsuit :)

however, a white blazer & matching pants would be a skosh much for daytime, so i’ll just make do with a more casual all white outfit - this ancient lightweight ruffly dress & jean jacket ^_^

*lace print & metallic*

lace print dress, metallic accessories, gold circle necklace, metallic sandals

this dress is super duper, mega, ultra old, but i’ve already had a pretty hectic monday, so for days like this, i’m grateful for easy & comfortable pieces that take no thought to throw on & accessorize :)  the epitome of oldie, but goodie :)

*purple, blue & braids*

colorblock outfit, blue purple outfit, asian floral, hair braids

hi all!  didn’t really mean to do a colorblock outfit today, in fact my clothing was secondary on my list of things to photograph.  if you can’t tell by my instagram or pictures from the other day, i’ve been way more interested in my hairstyles as of late.

obviously, today’s hair inspiration comes from that fan favorite character of game of thrones, the mother of dragons herself.  i’ve been messing with my color the past few months…going blonder for summer, but i’ve also been doing more creative ponytails & braids, just to get all this hair out of the way…hahaha!

*paisley sunshine*

paisley dress, blonde hair, golden hour, sunshine

such an old dress this is, but it’s perfect for a warm summery day.  i still love the colors & the paisley print…although who knows where paisley falls on the trend spectrum nowadays.  is it acceptable?  is it totally dated?  ah well, does it matter?  the weather is too nice & my mood is as light as my hair ^_^

*#px2wedding*

#px2wedding, boston fashionista, well-appointed catwalk, covetous creatures, a stylized hysteria

hi all!  i have been MIA.  not really.  i’ve just been hiding out in florida…hanging with my niece & other family, meeting up with friends at theme parks, eating all kinds of good food bad for me :)

so, here are some pics from a week ago when my good blogger friends, holly & greg of covetous creatures, got married!  it was such a fun event hanging out with them & other friends, kristen, marissa & najeema.  it’s hard to imagine this fashionable fête was just over a week ago while i’ve been spending the time since in sundresses, shorts & bathing suits.  sadly, i’ll be returning to boston soon, so will be back to regular programming shortly ^_^

one funny story about my wedding guest outfit.  i had another dress all ready to go *however* it would not zip up, even with my husband’s exasperated help.  i swear it fit a couple weeks ago!  whoops…guess i’ve gotten a little chunkier since then, hahaha :)  i was running out of time & had no plan B, so went ahead & repeated this outfit…what i wore for my 20th high school reunion, added the fascinator & the cape jacket & i was ready for the fashionable event of the year ^_^

wearing:  necessary clothing cape jacket || express yellow top || thrifted goodwill navy satin ballgown skirt || forever 21 fascinator || peacock cabachon necklace (from manila)

*florally blonde*

floral wrap dress, orange white floral, maxi wrap dress

i haven’t been this blonde in a looooooong time, probably last around 2001.  i mean, i’ve rocked blonde ends back in my ombre days, but not this overall blonde for quite a while.  it’s the warm, spring weather…makes me want to lighten up more :)  in honor of being blonde, i’m wearing this outfit courtesy of one of my favorite blonde friends, kristen, whom at one of the old-time clothing swaps, i grabbed this dress which she later on told me was hers!  i love it!

*mint & red floral*

mint blouse, floral skirt, metallic shoes, clear heels

wasn’t mint the trend du jour last season?  funny how i didn’t really wear the color much back then, but seems all i’m wearing now, hahaha!  these are actually old pieces that i’ve worn time & time again as it never fails as the perfect colorful springtime outfit.  i was messing around with flash & ISO camera settings today, hence the super strong constrasty look as compared to my usual photos. way different, but i like!  looks more like i took these photos at the height of summer!  hahaha :)

*black & yellow, black & yellow*

black yellow outfit, mesh top, mesh sleeves, black yellow print

my day is kind of getting away from me.  funny how my work week tends to be opposite of most people…starts off slow on mondays & then ramps up & by friday, i’m busy & crazed.  luckily, here’s an outfit post that never made it a while back.  

black yellow outfit, mesh top, mesh sleeves, black yellow print

this is a very old blouse, i believe about 7 years old, but the mesh neckline & sleeves are still very cool to me.  like looks good & literally breezy & cool to wear…hahaha :)  happy weekend, everyone!
