Due to the  recent rise in temperature in SoCal, I thought it would be nice to bust out some shorts rather than wear skinny jeans. As a college student, about 90% of the bottoms I own are skinny jeans, which is a drastic change from only wearing uniforms since kindergarten. So when the weather rose to 80 degrees this past weekend, I decided to take break free from my skinny jeans routine and put on some shorts.
Still awkward to take photos of myself

My favorite and most comfortable shoes ever!

Cardigan-J,Crew, Tank-Nordstrom, shorts- American Eagle, Boots- Munro, Bag- YSL

Since I have started college, I pretty much stopped drinking soda. To make up for the lack of sugar, I've become addicted to PINK LEMONADE. This delicious, pink drink has been my go-to drink to quench my thirst and sugar cravings. Thus when I saw this cardigan on sale at J.Crew, I reminded me so much of pink lemonade that I had to get it. The contrasts of the blush pink and neon yellow really mimic the taste and appearance of the drink. The deceptive, innocent color of the drink is offset by the citric taste of the lemons. 
The anchor buttons on this cardigan add a cute, nautical touch to this sweater. 

I am so excited to go home who the Memorial weekend. I need so R&R after my second round of midterms and before my finals. Stay chic and optimist!!

Happy Monday! This is just a quick post of what I wore this weekend for Mother's Day. Its been quite a while since I have gone home. I miss sleeping in my bright yellow room and waking up to an early morning breeze.

Cardigan-J.Crew Factory, Tank Top- Nordstrom, Shorts- Abercrombie

Necklace- J.Crew Factory, Shoes- Kate Spade

Here are two purchases I made recently. The necklace I got was from J.Crew Factory. They were having a new arrivals sale, and on top of that, I got a coupon for an extra 30% off!!!. The only negative point I have on the necklace was that the color is way darker than on the website.

The shoes I got were such a great deal. I purchased them off Ebay in pre-owned condition for only $125. The shoe was worn once by the seller, but that was fine with me. If I purchased the shoe at original price, it would have costed me about $289. I couldn't pass up a deal like this. 

Have a great week everyone!!

Lately, I have been craving the  color combination: blue and white. Blue has always been my #1 to-go color in my wardrobe, while the on-trend summer color, white, is starting to grow on me. Thus, I've been gravitating towards the oh-so popular dish design, Blue Danube
Blue Danube
This popular design has always been a classic favorite at many Chinese restaurant. I think I might own a few of these style of dishes. This got me thinking, 'I want a shirt with this type of print.' As I was browsing the some of my favorite stores, I found some similar designs.

For those of us who can afford to pay full price designer goods, I praise you guys. But those of us who are not so lucky, it is nice that there are tons of designer & retail collaboration to allow us "mere mortals" to have a dosage of designer good. Even though we can't have our dream collaboration, we can still scour the web for some designer look-alike or knockoffs.


Valentino Rockstud Flats
Aren't these flats gorgeous? I have noticed recently numerous fashion bloggers: sydneys fashion diary & add bubbles to taste to name a few. There are some knockoff versions by Forever 21 as shown by paperblog & the-budgetista. In addition to the Forever 21's version, I found a pair by Sole Society that are also knockoffs of the Valentino shoes.
Sole Society-$49.95
These are about twice the price of the Forever 21's version, but I prefer the snakeskin print on there flats. Aren't these adorable.
