I really wanted to like this dress, but there’s something a little off about it. The material has this nice dry texture to it which I love, but it doesn’t drape well on me. I normally wear an extra small at Everlane, so got this in small for a loose fit. Continue reading →
Back again! I love taking a little breather from real life to write here. It’s been crazy busy. And all I want is more time to relax. Work has been hectic and I’ve been spending my nights studying for my board exams. ughh... But back to getting dressed! Continue reading →
The thought of wearing white pants scares me. I’ve never owned a pair. These linen pants in the color “flax” are the closest thing I have to them. The slight color variations in the fabric hide stains well. I don’t live in fear of stains in these and don’t hesitate to sit on subway benches or walk on dirt paths in the park. An outfit succeeds when it gets out of your way, allows you to move freely and go anywhere. Continue reading →
Here I am in oatmeal again. I have two pairs of shorts now and have been wearing this 2nd pair almost daily. They’re from Everlane; for reference they are a size 4 (they run big and fit more like a size 6). I like the high smooth waistline and oversized leg opening. They feel like an updated pair of “mom” shorts (I’m not a mom but sometimes I like to look like one). The pockets are deep and can hold my iPhone 6+. With certain tops, I like to fold the hem up; they stay put and the pockets do not show when rolled up. Continue reading →
My Elizabeth Suzann Tilda pants arrived and I love them! I’ll post a proper review soon, but I’m so thrilled, I couldn’t wait… Continue reading →
My boyfriend accidentally bought me these two imported peonies at $15 a pop (he thought they were $7! lol). Over 3 days, they bloomed from dense brilliant pinks buds to these big fluffy white flowers. They are so beautiful! Can’t take my eyes off of them.
Here’s the outfit I wore today on my day off. I feel at peace in it. These second-hand Levi’s 501ct has stretched out a bit, so I’m going to wash and dry them in hopes they shrink. The colors are nicely balanced here and the whole outfit feels in harmony with who I am and what I’m doing.

Snooze alert. Here I am again in oatmeal and olive – for my girls looking for some color inspiration.
[outfit: everlane wool-cashmere turtleneck (neck tucked in), kowtow flower shirt, apc olive shorts, cluse watch, gifted necklace]
On repeat, here again, I’m wearing the same wool-cashmere turtleneck over Clyde pants. I wore this outfit to pick up some tacos for lunch. There was no need to carry a bag; my wallet, phone, and keys fit easily in these big pockets. It was a nice walk today; the streets were bustling with lots of smiling faces; the Cuban guys were out singing & playing bongo drums at the street corner again–always a welcomed sign winter is over, like the town troubadour in Gilmore girls, except with open bottles of tequila and more rhythm.

There’s no fabric I grab more than crisp heavy weight cottons. I like its nice dry hand feel. And the way the heavy weight creates an off the body structured silhouette, while still being thin enough to tuck in. I’m a big fan of letting the buttons and pockets of jeans show, and learned that to do that, it’s better to buy jeans that are forgiving around the waist for a good, 360 degrees, all-around tuck in.

Here’s another quick outfit post. You can’t go wrong with black and navy; they’re perfect colors to put on repeat, and nobody will ever notice. I’m keeping it simple here with a slouchy button up and cropped trousers. I’ll only wear loose fitted button ups. Never again will I wear a fitted one.

I don’t usually wear leggings as pants, but with athletic wear, I think it looks OK. Continue reading →
I took an interesting class on professional ethics today. The point I took home was that ethical issues are almost never black and white. When it comes to ethical wardrobes, I think a lot of us are doing the best we can. Continue reading →
