If there's one fashion rule that I'll always be happy to break, it's wearing white after Labor Day. Until this point, I still have no idea where this rule arrived from- but even without trying to be a rebel or anything- I will gravitate to not just the color but full monochromatic creams and other shades of whites throughout the entire year.

We're well into September now, and I know I've been a bit behind on keeping up with the blog - but with a dress as seasonless as the Merlette Soliman Dress, I think you guys will forgive me right? As lovely and flowy as this dress is in white, I have to say that it does make for a very risky dress on a windier day (something I don't see many online reviews of this dress addressed). The thin fabric also makes it a bit see-through on super sunny days (but this is forgiving since there's so much fabric draping around). Dressing up a piece like this for Spring and Fall is quite effortless- an oversized cardigan or leather jacket would do, so it's a piece you'll see me wearing often from here on out.

Scandinavian Barn Airbnb, Germantown, New York

August 25, 2021

Making up for lost time, earlier this summer, me and two of my closest girlfriends decided to take a trip upstate to spend a little 'R and R' time together. We came across this stunning Airbnb listing in Germantown with stunning decor and a beautiful view of the Catskill. Right then and there, we quickly made our reservation and were off to the trip a couple of weeks later.

We booked the property for a 3-days and 2-nights stay, which was just the perfect amount of time. As always, I was the one out of all of us to overpacked for a weekend getaway because I bought 3 different summer dresses and 2 other casual outfits that I totally didn't even get to wear. By now, I'm sure you're all familiar with how much I love linen- so true to myself, I repeated two of these Sleeper dresses back to back.

On the first day, the girls and I spent most of our time making a big lunch, tanning, and we even set up a little picnic by the dock that also was part of the location. I didn't get a good photo of me in this swimsuit I bought specifically for this girl's trip, but I think regardless of where you're going in the summer, packing one never hurts! Later that evening, I threw on this lemon yellow dress for the picnic with the most darling sleeves (they also came in handy for protecting my arms from mosquito bites- we are all city girls after all).

I saved my most versatile dress for the last day. I love how this one easily looks like it could pass for loungewear, but better, and still appropriate for going out. I spent the morning making some coffee for the girls in this lovely kitchen while they were off on a morning run. This kitchen and the view was absolute bliss and I now dream of having one that faces such a view sometime in my life.

The weekend flew by really quickly and though this post is much shorter than my usual travel recaps, it goes to show how disconnected from my phone and camera I was and I was fully present and enjoying my time with my girls in the most beautiful place. For a recap in motion, see this.

On the B Sides

I wasn't lying to you guys in the last post when I said on most days my summer style is quite casual. However, it's been a while since I found a pair of jeans that I love this much. I fell even more obsessed with the brand after reading their bio as well. These jeans are some of the comfiest pairs that I've ever tried on. So much so that I wore them out the day after they came in the mail.

My go-to denim brands have always been GRLFRND or AGOLDE, but I'm already eyeing a couple more pairs from B Sides Jeans for the upcoming seasons (especially this patchwork pair).

I picked up this mixed-print midi dress from Free People about a week or two ago and have found myself gravitating to it several times lately. This dress just goes effortlessly with sneakers like my Veja Campos. You might have seen me talk about it on my Instagram already, but I wanted to finally document it on this blog because you guys know well that I have a thing for contrast panels fabrics and mixed-prints (here's an oldie Rixo dress that I also love).

I say this every single summer but, by July, I'm already over summer fashion and quickly thinking about what I would want to wear for fall. Asides from throwing on a pair of shorts and a tank top, I feel like my style is the blandest during these seemingly long three months of scorching hot weather. Anyway, something that always helps me justify these kinds of dresses is being able to transition them once the temperature drops. I can see this dress, in particular, looking really nice with a leather jacket and ankle boots, or layered over a knitted turtleneck too.

Rustic Orange for Summer

June 24, 2021

Summer's in full swing in New York City finally, and I don't know about you, but despite the high temps, I live for these near-9 pm-sunsets. I just wrote about a tropical boxy overshirt the other day, and I'm already back with another summer outfit to back up my theory that these will be a staple in your wardrobe. The best part about these seasonal shirts is that I can totally see them easily transitioning into the fall too.

Rustic orange isn't usually associate as a summer color, but as a warm tone girl, I just gravitate to earthy shades no matter what time of the year. Material is really important with autumnal colors because having a silky-satin material top versus a cotton or knitted one really makes a difference. I've added a few options of orange-colored pieces that I love while browsing online including this dress from Urban Outfitters, and top, in case you'd like to add something orange to your life too.

I picked up this boxy gem of a shirt among the sales at Aritzia a few days ago, and have already started brainstorming all the outfits that I could wear this top with. It's a personal rule of mine to make sure that I can style at least a few outfits with something that I'm adding to my wardrobe, so I don't end up with a purchase I regret spending my money on and letting it take up space in my closet after wearing it just once, and probably just for a few hours (yes, I'm speaking from experience). Do you have a personal shopping guideline of your own too?

Hope I'm just in time to say 'aloha' to the summer season with this shirt that I thrifted a couple of years back in Tokyo. Random, I know, but I definitely think there's always such an affinity for Americana-esque style and culture that makes the fashion cycle in Japan really interesting. When it comes to sustainable fashion/style, thrifting is often regarded as one of the best methods, however, I've always find it a little conflicting since consumerism is still highly encouraged. My personal belief is always, just buy only what you love and can see yourself wearing for a long time. Ok, tangent asides, I definitely think boxy oversized shirt will be making a comeback this summer, especially over all the loungewear and basics that most of our wardrobe is made up of post-covid. There's no better way to stand out from the crowd with something a little more unique and one of a kind. And on that note, I've also included a few option of fun and funky prints for you to browse below.
