Bird of Paradise

Hi friends! Here in NY, we’re still in the heat of summer but autumn is slowly making its appearance known with diminishing daylight and chillier mornings. My outfit is centered around this bright and colorful bird of paradise dress. Because the print is contrasted against a black background, it almost has a graphic and urban feel….

Workout

Hi friends! Keeping with the athleisure trend, I’ve style a workout outfit for this week. It showcases a cropped long-sleeve top with mesh leggings and supportive sneakers. What do you normally exercise in?  Top: Cropped Sweatshirt, H&M Leggings: Mesh Leggings, Forever21 Sneakers: Black Sneakers, Asics G

Street Chill

Hi friends! As opposed to the ultra-feminine previous look, this next outfit definitely fits more in the athleisure category. I just loved the color-blocked conservative front in contrast to the dramatically exposed back. Doc Martens and an all-black chain choker toughen up the look for a chill neighborhood rooftop hang. Alternatively, the top would work…

Summertime

Hello friends! No more hiatus! It’s been an insane year of transitions and experimentation but ultimately, I’m back and now more resolved than ever. This is a daytime look inspired by summertime picnics spent chatting with close friends. It showcases a polka dot crop top, lace-up wedge sandals, a flowy skirt, and the ever-trendy choker….

April Showers | May Flowers

Happy April! Apologies for the lack of updates, but I’ve just moved out of my parents’ house in Queens into my own apartment in Brooklyn and have been spending a lot of time adjusting my schedule. The weather here in NY has been extremely turbulent; weekdays are sunny and warm, while weekends have remained rainy…

Stripes

Happy February! I really like the shirt that I got from Zara! It has a pin stripe pattern and is cut asymmetrically. The high neck line, streamlined shape, and side slit remind me of the traditional Chinese Qipao. Lunar New Year has just passed and I wanted a modern look that celebrated the occasion. The…

Cloudy

Hi friends! This is a casual weekend look starring an all-blue ensemble with taupe wedges. I wanted to experiment with wearing outerwear as the main article of clothing so I buttoned up the cardigan and wore it as a long sleeve top. I think the results turned out alright! I’ve matched the look with a lacy,…

Prismatic

My new shoes came! I tend to avoid prints, but while browsing, I simply couldn’t resist the big, bright florals featured on this shoe. I kept the rest of the outfit simple with an all-black concept and topped the entire look off with a sporty windbreaker. Sweater: Fine-Knit Turtleneck Sweater, H&M Shorts: Lace Shorts, Forever…

Stay Warm

Happy new year! It’s finally feeling like winter here in NYC. I put a quick look together that is feminine and features one of my favorite spring dresses yet cozy enough for winter. What are some of your winter wardrobe inspirations? Coat: Wool Coat, Laundry by Shelli Segal Dress: Lace Dress, H&M Scarf: Basic Extra Soft…

213

WOW! It’s already December! For this outfit, I drew some utilitarian inspiration from my senior girl scout uniform and paired cropped navy slacks with a cozy yet structured beige sweater. My rugged Doc Martens add an industrial practicality as I roamed around the old stomping grounds of my elementary school. Sweater: Brooklyn V-Neck Pullover, Gap Pants:…

Autumn Sun

Black Friday was surprisingly warm this year. I took the opportunity to cut back on what lately seems to be a massive amount of layers, and chose to wear a thin outfit instead. I paired my collared black sweater with velvet mary janes for a preppy vibe and contrasted my all-black outfit with a pop of…

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

I shacked up at a hotel in Cambridge and wanted an outfit that was casual, a little sensual, and would express who I was in one statement.
