Late Summer Outfits

Hi all ❀ Summer break is coming to a near end, but it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying the last couple weeks of sleeping in and having a good time. In this post I’ll go over three outfits that I feel is good for those final days out! πŸ™‚

Here in SoCal our temperatures range from 70ΒΊF-100ΒΊF+ in the summer. The first look is for the day that gets a bit more chilly in the evening. Hence the polka dot jacket πŸ™‚ I got this jacket in the kids section in Target a while back for $20! I remember I kept walking past this jacket and one day I was like, “I need this, where else will I get this??!” For the price it was well worth it, and like all denim jackets, it just goes with everything! πŸ˜€ The light gray bottom up top was a gift from my mom and the brand is called Cloth & Stone and she got it from TJ Maxx. The navy shorts are from J.Crew and the cute sandals are Steve Madden and I got them at Nordstrom during their sale (score!!).

To complete the look, I wore Stephane Christian sunglasses in the model Shadow Cat. This is a popular Korean brand and I got these in Koreatown at Eyeholics. This outfit is a great for a nice day at the beach since it is often 10 degrees cooler than the city. But if it’s still too hot to wear a jacket, you can always just take it off πŸ˜‰

This second look is for a more sunny day. The baby blue top is from Marshall’s and it is a Franco Star piece. The shirt is extremely comfortable to wear and fits true to size. If you are out with friends and decided to have AYCE kbbq, this outfit has a more flowy look to hide away your food baby hehe ^^’ I wear it like a regular shirt but you can also wear it as a off the shoulder top since the collar can be easily stretched out. The white bottoms are from Zara. I remember getting these when I was a freshman in college and they were the shorts or shall I say skort, that I wore everyday because it just went with everything. This is another look for a warm day outside and the baby blue and white combination will always work out!

For the last outfit, I wanted to go for a berry look. I got this top from & Other Stories at the Americana in Glendale for 50% off. I really liked the color and liked that I can tie the bottom to give it a hip look to it. This shirt is a great casual shirt to wear in the hot weather as it is a crop top but since I am short it fits like a regular top xD These shorts are also from J.Crew and I got them a long while back at their outlet store in Camarillo. For shoes, I wore these yellow sandals that I got from DSW. I picked these yellow sandals because it gave the outfit a different color and what other color pops more than yellow.

Now for accessories, I used a cute pink pair of sunglasses and my go-to red backpack from Fjallraven. The sunglasses I got are also from Eyeholics and they are Carin Sunglasses in the model Loist C2. (Btw if you live in LA make sure to visit this sunglasses store! They are super friendly and have cool shades) I remember seeing these sunglasses in a Korean drama and was drawn by the pink color on the actress. After researching on where to get these glasses, I walked in at Eyeholics and saw them in their display. I was so stoked that I found these glasses and of course I needed them in my life 😎 To keep me cool, I tied my hair into two braids for a playful finish. You can easily wear this look to go to the mall or to an art museum. I ended up going to the infamous Paul Mitchell pink wall to take pictures hehe~

What did you think of these three outfits? Which were your favorite? Let me know in the comments πŸ™‚ Have a happy Monday! ⭐

Perverse Sunglasses Mystery Box Unveiled

Hi all! ❀

It’s been a while since I have last posted here. This past month I have been lazy and away in Canada so I took a break to just enjoy my free time. In this post I will be talking about my review on Perverse Sunglasses Mystery Box for Her.

Perverse Sunglasses is LA based and started coming out with glasses last year. Their goal was to have stylish and trendy glasses for an affordable price. When Coachella posts were popping up everywhere on Instagram, I noticed this brand on different YouTube stars like Jenn Im. I looked into the brand and was quite shocked at how cheap the prices were compared to higher end sunglasses like Prada, Gentle Monster, etc. At this point in time, I was pretty boujee about my glasses and only wanted glasses that were $150+ (I am a poor college student, but I enjoy glasses with better quality πŸ™‚ ). Nothing has really changed since then, I’m still broke but I kept seeing the brand and went for their Mystery Box which was $15 but came out to $22 with tax and shipping.

Now this $22 box comes with three random pairs of sunnies and there are no returns on any of the glasses, so think of it like a final sale. I ordered mine on a Tuesday afternoon and received the box Thursday morning. Being a sunglasses fan, I was stoked to get three additional pairs to my collection but unsure of what I would exactly get. When I opened the box, I was delighted to see a cute image on the box with a pair of sunglasses that looked like a cat that can shoot fire (what do you guys think?? lol xD). Other than that, I saw three pairs of sunglasses in their own drawstring bag. The mystery was finally over!

The first pair I opened was their Rodeo Drive sunglasses in purple. Now at first impression, I thought they were a bit cheap looking. I felt like I could easily find these pair in Downtown LA for $10. When wearing them, I was a bit let down. The frame on my face was okay but it wasn’t a color that I really enjoyed. I looked up the style on their website and saw that they only have this in a black color and I would of probably enjoyed it more if it was in that color. This style retails on their site for $48 so just on this pair alone, I saved like $25. Although the first pair were a bit of a miss, I had two more to go.

The second pair that I opened was their Taehler sunglasses in a black and white striped frame with blue reflective lenses. This was my favorite out of the three I received since it was the only pair that really matched my style. This pair has a nice cat eye shape to the frame which I really love and the blue lenses were really cool too 😎 On their website they also do not carry this particular color (so I’m assuming these are older models that they are trying to get rid of??).  But they do carry the same frame in a really cute pink, bright blue, and nude color for $45. If I were to add the savings together from the last pair, I saved $70. Woot woot!! ⭐

Lastly, the final pair were their Slay glasses in an aquamarine color with dark gray on the sides. My first impression was, “Okay, these are okay”. After trying them on, I wasn’t really feeling like I was slaying in these, they were just okay .-. These not so slaying glasses on their site was the most expensive out of the three at $50, but again this color isn’t available but there is a beige and transparent one!

All three sunnies received

Being a mystery box, I do not have much complaints. I saved in total around $120 and was able to see what Perverse sunglasses were all about. I was pleased that I liked at least one pair so it makes the box worth it. Getting to try new styles is great and if you are a huge sunglasses fan, this is a fun way to try out a new brand and try out some different styles/colors. Let me know what you think! Until next time! ❀
