When We Try to be Professional

Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 11.15.02 PM

Top – Brandy Melville / Skirt – H&M / Booties – Munro – Nordstrom

I work at a start-up so fancy business professional attire isn’t required for me, however, that doesn’t mean that I can just slum it. I can’t even bring myself to wear a t-shirt and jeans most days – y’all know that’s just not me anyways. I also work with a lot of external people in my company as well so I try to maintain appearances. On this particular day, I felt like dressing up a little bit more. This is probably an outfit that I would have worn when working in finance and while I’ve gotten rid of most of those pieces, there are still a few that I have kept behind (just in case!) You never know when you’ll need them. This is one of my favorite outfits to wear to work because it’s length-appropriate, professional, and still makes me feel comfortable throughout a work day.

Small

Screen Shot 2016-04-02 at 11.55.26 PM

Knit top – Brandy Melville / Skirt – H&M / Tights – Forever21 / Beanie – Aritzia

Looks familiar, doesn’t it? This is probably one of my favorite locations to shoot at because the parking lot always seems to be deserted. In this photo, Sep and I wanted to play around with size so I asked her to stand farther away from me to capture how small I look against the building. We also tried shooting this at “golden hour” for once which added to the shadows. I haven’t worn this outfit again because I remember feeling a little frumpy when wearing it, but I did like how edgy it was with the tights and accessorizing it with the beanie. I’m sure it will make another appearance this coming fall!

How We Style Our Statement Necklace

Screen Shot 2016-03-05 at 11.37.38 AM

Happy Saturday everyone! We’re taking a break in our backlog of outfit posts this week to bring you one that we shot earlier this week! I finally had a chance to do my first collaboration of the year. Younic had reached out to me on my Instagram and offered to send me a necklace of my choosing so that I could style it. A couple months back, we actually shot an outfit post using Sepideh’s J. Crew statement necklace that I had borrowed for the moment, but I had never had my own. Once it arrived, I started thinking about all the ways I wanted to wear it – did I want to  dress it up or down, wear it with a button up – a pullover sweater – or a t-shirt? There were a lot of possibilities, but ultimately, I wanted to dress it up in a casual way in which I could still wear the outfit to work on a day-to-day basis. Thank you so much Younic for the opportunity!

2016 Oscars After Party

Brie Larson in Monse

This is my favorite because The Oscars red carpet tends to be very grand and conservative, but the after party is when things start to get a little bit sexier and you know all the stars that weren’t invited to the actual award show get to come out so that’s nice for them.

We HAD to kick this post off with Brie. Honestly, how could we not? Also, oh my goodness – is she wearing pink velvet? She not only was the best dressed of the night, but clearly the most comfortable the rest of the night. We just want to be friends with her.

Taylor Swift Eve

Screen Shot 2015-10-24 at 9.45.41 PM

Crop top – Aritzia / Skirt – H&M / Birkenstocks

We’re so behind on our posts that this outfit dates all the way back to August! Nearly a year before Taylor Swift’s actual “1989” show in Santa Clara, my coworkers bought about 20 tickets so they could all go together. They kept asking me if I had wanted to go, but I kept turning down the opportunity because I didn’t think I was a big enough fan to be deserving enough to go. Also, I hadn’t listened to her “1989” album at all except for the songs that had been released on mainstream radio (big mistake on my part.) As we got closer and closer to the actual concert date, I started to experience FOMO. Luckily, a couple tickets opened up and I raised my hand right away! I was so excited that I decided to wear a crop top with my outfit the next day in true Taylor fashion. I hope I made her proud!

We Love a Good Set of Stairs

Blue tank top – H&M / White skort – Aritzia / Wedges – DV by Dolce Vita

We’re starting to run out of interesting backdrops for my outfits! Leah and I actually discovered this the other day (not too far away!) and thought it worked well with the outfit scheme. We took this photo last Monday and back then I wanted to do a whole week featuring “pops of color!” but we only lasted 3 days, unfortunately. Instagramming is a hard lifestyle, apparently.

Donut Face

Blue tank top – Aritzia / Skirt – H&M / Birkenstocks / Bracelet – Madewell

Since it was National Donut Day last Friday, I was pretty excited about incorporating props into my outfit post. The only thing is… I kind of look like that character from Pan’s Labyrinth, which wasn’t what I was originally going for. It’s still cute though, right? This is the first time that I’ve ever worn this outfit altogether and I really like the baby blue with the black and white skirt. As of late, I’ve been wearing a lot of just black and white so it’s nice to mix things up a bit. I’m also realizing through these outfit posts that I am totally utilizing my Birkenstocks (a worry that I had when I wasn’t finding that they were matching with anything) which is great because even if they don’t match with things, I realize I don’t care.

Billboard Music Awards 2015

Zendaya Coleman in Fausto Puglisi

Wow, Balmain though was really havinga night with the celebrities especially since Kendall announced that they were going to be the next H&M collaboration! Zendaya looked amazing on the red carpet last night, but one of my biggest disappointments? That she was not interviewed by Giuliana for the E! Red Carpet show. The drama was heard ’round the world, but this was a huge missed opportunity for both parties to squash all of that and they didn’t. Leaving her out of the segment is now going to make people speculate a little bit I’m sure.

I Got Hops

Chambray shirt – Madewell / Skirt – H&M / Scarf – Aritzia / Booties – Munro via Nordstrom

It turned out to be pretty gray today so we bundled up! This is actually kind of a drastic change from the all white outfit I wore just a couple of days ago when it was completely sunny. We decided to have a little bit more fun with this post though so Leah captured a photograph of me getting some air! Surprisingly, we only needed just 4 takes to get this! Having grown up in Seattle, I never really realized how much of a damper (pun intended) the weather can have on our overall health and wellbeing. Even though it rained just a little bit today, I found myself feeling more tired and at one point even a little sick. Turns out a few of my co-workers shared the same sentiments as well. Maybe it’s all in my head or maybe it’s just what the weather does to us all. Whatever the case, I’m really glad I got to feel like I was skipping ahead to fall today!

2015 Met Gala

Anna Wintour in Chanel – she hosted the whole thang so she had to be first. 

It killed me that I couldn’t post every look and have this ready to go for you all this morning! I was so excited to see some of the looks from the Met Gala yesterday evening and then a part of me knew that I would hate some looks as well. With the theme being, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” I was concerned that there would be jabs poked at stereotypes and Asian trends that would make me cringe. Of course there were, but like all things, we have to move on and not dwell on them. In the interest of saving time (and space!) I am choosing not to include looks that I felt were in poor taste.

Proud Owner:

I feel like I’ve said this before, but the best part about not being in school is being able to purchase new pieces for fall and being able to wear them right away!  When I was growing up, my mom and I would always set aside time for school shopping (obviously, my favorite time of the year) and as soon as I came home with the bags, she would say to me, “Okay, now no wearing these until school start!” At the time, I hated being patient and waiting, but knowing myself and how clumsy I was back then I’m almost sure that I would’ve ruined something before school started. It was great for her to let me build up this anticipation over my clothes. Even though I don’t do this anymore, I still remember it fondly and understand why it was the way it was :)

So today I made some purchases.

I’ve been wanting a vest for awhie now! I used to wear vests similar to this one from Old Navy when I was in elementary school and now I feel like I’m coming around full circle with this vest that is much more sophisticated and from Uniqlo.

hmskirt

Since relocating to California, I’ve been getting a little bit lazy with my outfits and resorting to a much more relaxed look. There’s nothing wrong with that, but jeans and a t-shirt can get a little stale after some time. This fall, I vow to be my old self from college and am hoping to dive back into some of those looks that I loved taking a risk on. I saw this skirt in the display as I was walking by H&M today and I knew that once I got into the store that I had to hunt it down. The high waist, the zipper in the back, the textured pattern – all things that I love.

2014 MTV Video Music Awards [Arrivals]

Ariana Grande in Moschino top and skirt. This is kind of a hard look for Ariana who is known for her sweet strapless dresses, but this IS her night after all – opening the VMA’s, debuting the music video for “Bang Bang” and releasing her latest album “My Everything” tonight!

Miranda Kerr for H&M Spring 2014

I feel like I’m so much more inclined to buy some of these outfits just because Miranda Kerr is wearing them and I love Miranda Kerr. I am a basic consumer.
