Essentials for a Working Girl

Shirt, Trousers -Jcrew, Coat - Vince, Bag, Heels - Zara, Watch - Bloomingdales, Laptop - Sony

As summer comes to the end, millions of students head back to sleepless nights of studying, partying, and working at universities especially for college students heading into their junior/senior year. The approach of fall signals the time for them to look for internships that jumpstart their "dream" jobs, to attend test prep for graduate schools, and to prepare for life after college.
 As I get ready for my junior year, I imagine what my life would be life after college and what career I want. Thus, I design this outfit as what I hope my 9-to-5 outfit would look like. An unconventional take on the professional outfit by swapping out plain black wool trousers for foulard-designed trouser that is popular this F/W season. Including some classic black office bag and pumps, the classic working girl is ready to take on the world!

Cravings: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cravings: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Finally, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here. For those who have early access to the sale, you are the lucky people who get first dibs, while everyone else has to wait until July 19th. Luckily, my mom is a Nordstrom card member, so I took the opportunity to browse through the Anniversary Sale online to see what exciting items they have on sale. These are some of the few things I am currently craving. Hurry, some items are already low in stock like this Rag&Bone/Jeans in Wine.
Have a great weekend. Stay chic and optimist!

Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July!! Just came back from watching fireworks with a few friends at Yorba Linda today.  It was great seeing a few of my high school friends and reminiscing about high school moments. I want to quickly share an outfit that embodies the Fourth of July spirit (shown above).

Hope everyone had a spectacular 4th of July!! Be safe!

Happy Tuesday!
It's been quite a long time since I have updated my blog. Finals, summer plans, and procrastination really took a toll on my blogging. Sorry to all my readers!!

Now that everything is settled, and summer school has started, I can spend more time updating my blog with OOTD and other post of clothes, life, and hobbies. I just wanted to make a quick post about my trip to the Getty's Museum. I went with my boyfriend and a friend today to this place, since it was a highly recommended place to visit by my school. After constantly making rain checks with my friend Ed, we made a firm decision to go today. 
Here is the West Pavilion section of the Getty's Museum. This part mainly consists of photographs by two Japanese photographers depicting daily activities of Japanese life or surrealism. The rest of the museum contained European paintings and sculptures from the Renaissance to the mid-1700s. I would say I am not a huge fan of  European art and culture, so walking around and looking at multiple paintings of deity and religious figures did not inspire me. 
Bed for the royal families
 But the most entertaining part of the trip was exhibits of how the French royal family lived. Large ornate beds with Gold bed frames, and intricate baroque designs on mantle pieces really awed me. I could never imagine living like a royal centuries ago. Every piece of furniture seems too "fancy" to use, if understand what I mean.

 After strolling through the North, East, South, and West Pavilions, we decided to rest outside in the Central Garden area. In the middle of the garden, there was a fountain with a maze floating on top. It was beautiful and relaxing to look at after walking through countless corridors of paintings.

Tank top- Nordstrom, Jeans- Acne, Crossbody bag- Forever 21, hoodie- American Apparel

For my outfit, I decided to keep it very casual. I wore flip flops with a loose, peach-colored tank top, and skinny jeans. I brought a grey hoodie in case it got chilly.

Have a great week! Stay chic and optimist.
