Late Summer Outfits

Hi all โค 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here in SoCal our temperatures range from 70ยบF-100ยบF+ in the summer. The first look is for the day that gets a bit more chilly in the evening. Hence the polka dot jacket ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜Ž 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a happy Monday! โญ

Hi all! โค

I know I have not been writing in this blog for quite a while now ๐Ÿ˜ฆ With graduation coming up, it’s been a struggle to balance school, work, relationships, friendships, family, and sleep ๐Ÿ˜ณ But I do hope that I can write in here at least once a week and would love to share my world with whoever reading this~

Any who, I seriously cannot believe that the Fast & Furious series is already on movie eight ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I thought 7 was where it would all end but apparently I was wrong. Like all movie series, I really had to go and see this one and who better to go with?? Obviously my ๋‚จ์ž ์นœ๊ตฌ ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

We decided to watch the movie at the CGV Cinema in Koreatown. For those who do not know what that is, it’s a small Korean movie theater that plays around 2-3 different movies a day. I’ve seen a variety of Korean movies here like ๋ถ€์‚ฐํ–‰ (Train to Busan) and ๋งˆ์Šคํ„ฐ(Master). It’s my first time watching an American movie here and it was different seeing Korean subtitles on screen lol XD There were a lot of twists in the movie but the movie was nonetheless awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€ I will not spoil the movie so do not worry okay?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here in Koreatown, you’ll notice a lot of cafes and dessert places. One poppin’ place near the CGV Cinema’s is Somi Somi. After our movie was done we thought we should get dessert here~ I ended up getting the milk & green tea swirl with nutella in a ๋ถ•์–ด๋นต (fish-shaped bread). They have other ice cream flavor options like chocolate and banana and other fillings like red bean if that is more to your liking ๐Ÿ™‚ The line could be a little long at times so be prepared to wait. But you will not be disappointed in the end with your new Instagram picture~ โญ

If you are in the LA Ktown area, try to come out to the CGV plaza and enjoy the restaurants and theater it has to offer. My only advance is to beware of the parking structure! Finding parking can be difficult, and if you forget to validate you will have to pay when you leave~ Hope you all have a great day! Oh and Happy Easter! ๐Ÿป

Lunch in LA, Dessert at the Loft~

Woke up this morning and tried to add a class to take for summer school, it did not work ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Oh well, I may have wasted gas and time to travel to school but I ended up getting a delicious lunch afterwards! ^___^

Today marks the 15th month anniversary with my boyfriend. We both did not realize this until the afternoon and thought it would be a good idea to celebrate with a nice lunch. I have always wanted to try KazuNori and I was so happy that this was our destination. KazuNori is a less expensive alternative to Sugarfish by Nozawa. The only difference between the two is that KazuNori specializes in their hand rolls while Sugarfish has hand rolls and nigiri sushi to offer.

Just like always, downtown LA is prettyย  shitty when it comes to parking. No matter where you go, you will have to pay something to park, and it is really ones preference if they prefer to scout out the parking meters on street or just park in one of the parking lots. We both decided to street park it but had a 30 minute parking spot. Being our first time there, we were surprised at how crowded it was to sit and dine-in. We thought it would be best to order the food to-go and eat it at his place.

Luckily the wait for the order took around 10 minutes. While waiting, my boyfriend wanted to take a picture of me at this cool artwork right next to the restaurant. I decided to also take some pictures of another piece I saw. 10 minutes past and now we’re headed back to his place to see what the craze for these hand rolls are about.

Lunch as expected was delicious and I can’t wait to go back and eat some more sushi ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite would have to be the blue crab hand roll and my boyfriend seemed to like the yellow tail hand roll the most. After our food coma, the boy needed to study again so we went off to the Loft (Cafe Loft in K-Town). This was also our first time here at this specific cafe, and I am so happy that they have their own parking lot that doesn’t charge!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ We came around 6PM and easily found a table with an outlet to do our work. We ordered our usual, iced milk tea for him, and an iced peach tea for me. As for our dessert, we decided to order the butter waffle with strawberry and vanilla ice cream. ๋ง›์žˆ์–ด์š”! (Which is delicious in Korean~)

Overall, the day could not have been any better. Well adding the class would have been nice~~ Who is planning to take summer school this year?? What classes are you going to take? I wish everyone a great rest of their day wherever they are! Stay happy! ๐Ÿ™‚
