First outfit post from LA!! I can’t believe I’m back here, it feels so surreal.

One thing I love about living in California is the weather, it’s never TOO cold. You can still get away with a coat and the tiniest shorts without looking silly. I’ve been looking for an oversized military jacket and I found this at a thriftstore in Ilocos, authentic from the US Army, pretty cool huh?

My cousins took me to Chocolatier in Jupiter St before heading to the airport, their Ferrero concoctions are sinfully to die for!!598935_4824502083817_1598816812_n

a strange arrangement

This was set up for our Valentines BBQ at the office. I unearthed these photos when I cleaned up my hard drive.

skimming to kick off summer [5/7]


[sunglasses: urban outfitters, lipstick: mac’s scarlet ibis, kimono robe: zuz, bikini top: risque, shorts: vintage]

Kicked off summer with a trip to the beach with my mom and my brother. I’ve been learning how to skim on and off for the past 4 years and I still am a big failure. Haha. But 4 major wipe outs to date wont stop me from trying 😀

MAC’s Scarlet Ibis matte lipstick is a red orange shade that’s very summery. It’s one of those bold shades where you don’t look hilarious rocking in the beach. Haha. I initially asked for MAC’s morange but it was sold out already, so my friend Ishii got me this instead and I love it!! I didn’t even bother to hunt down morange anymore.

 This summer, make a kimono robe one of your key staples. This lovely black robe was sent by the beautiful Karla from ZUZ Closet. I also have it in blue and candy color stripes that I’m so excited to wear for my summer getaways! I’m all about using the same things again and again but making them look different each time. You can wear it as a cover up in the beach, or wear it with a pair of cut off’s and a basic white tank. If you tie it in the middle you can even wear it as a top!

Eugene is all over Ilocos, riding on cement, sand or water.

Epic fail. Haha.

5/7, I used my Red Dot scarf as a purse 🙂
