With the temperatures heating up in the 90’s, I wanted to discuss a pre-summer staple in my closet. The little swing dress.

I wore this swing dress that I made a while back on Mother’s Day to hang with the family and just spent the whole day relaxing, lounging and eating. It’s my perfect “daytime dress” because while the silhouette is very girly and feminine, the fit and flare adds a playful element to a comfortable and easy-going style.. This classic dress can be accessorized in so many ways and it can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats.  It’s definitely my favorite versatile dress at the moment and perfect for consuming all-you-can-eat family buffets without feeling too self conscious. You know, sometimes a girl just want to let it all hang out without really letting it all hang out. Solution = swing dress! :)

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day and am I glad it’s Thursday, a little bit closer to freedom!

Not sure how I forgot all about these photos that we took a while back because this has got to be my favorite skirt from the collection (and the longer version HERE). I love how the fabric is so silky soft and flows so seamlessly when I walk, or in my case spin/twirl. Sorry, with such a twirl-able skirt, I just can’t help myself! :)

Hope you’re having a fantastic Friday! Enjoy the day and be safe over the weekend!! xo

Just as quickly as my love blossomed for the “extreme” high low trend last year, the appeal faded out faster than I can spelled a-s-y-m-m-e-t-r-i-c-a-l… But somehow, this look always seem to find a way back into my life. I can’t deny, the look is so feminine, flirty, a bit edgy/sexy and effortless all meshed up together in one little ball. This Siho dress is the perfect summer to fall transition for me and I love how comfortable it is. I wore it lounging around the house and for outdoor, I paired it with my favorite booties, a denim jacket to give it some shape and emerald T&J Designs earrings for a pop of color! xo


Neon Girl


I really love how sweet and playful this OASAP dress is and the neon is really bright, perfect for summer and on sun-kissed tanned skin (too bad I am pale as ever right now but it still works :). I was actually running on 3 hours of sleep this day after staying up all night packaging orders for my shop but instead of throwing on sweats, I thought putting on something bright and cheerful can give me life (also with the help of caffeine). Added a black studded belt and some silver metallic heels to edgify the look. Hope everyone is having a lovely Friday!

As much as I love pretty flowy dresses, I favored an awesome pair of casual pants that’s versatile and can take me from day to night. These Bar III slim jockey pants are beyond comfortable, stretches and are so soft to the touch. They’re typically worn with flats or sneakers (perfect for running errands or lounging around) but I decided to dress and edge them up with metallic pumps and a (faux) leather jacket with interesting back details. The mixing is really more of an outcome to my on-to-go-and-didn’t-have-a-change-of-clothes problems than me trying to be creative. :)
