Thursday Blues

(Sweater and bracelets- F21, Jeans- BDG, Booties- Jeffrey Campbell)

I would have to say Thursdays are one of the toughest days of the week; it's one day shy of the weekend and four days into the work week.  I translated my feelings into something stylish with this slouchy geo-print sweater and some colorful bracelets to help brighten my day. 

I met up a girlfriend for dinner tonight at a ramen place called Ikeman in Hollywood.  Let me share something with you guys, I'm asian, I eat ramen like people eat cereals and this was the first time I had "dip ramen" (something this restaurant was known for).  The broth and noodles were plated separately (sorry, I should have taken a picture) and that was so foreign to me.  I didn't know if I should have transferred the noodles into my cup of broth?  But it was a small bowl and wouldn't fit all the noodles.  I don't know if it was eaten correctly, but I just took a bite of the noodles and a sip of the broth.  I did get a few weird stares from the waitress, but it could be my confused look and my friend laughing hysterically at me.

There's something about wearing a blazer that makes dressing seem so effortlessly chic.  People usually gush about pricier items like Louboutin shoes or Chanel handbags, but it's the little things that gets me excited.  Don't you just love my "love" stack rings from Forever 21?!?  When I spotted these babies from across the room, I knew I had to have it and at $3.80, I bought one for each of my bffs.  I love spreading the "love"!

Today was a good day.  Came home from work to a home-cooked meal and after dinner, my bf and I just laid in bed listening to Adele.  Man, can that girl sing.  I truly enjoy nights like tonight!

Sun-drenched Fall

(Top-H&M, Shorts- Thrifted, Boots- Steve Madden, Accessories- F21)

I woke up with the sun shining in my face and it felt great, especially since LA had been gloomy the past few days.  I quickly made plans to meet my Love for brunch and browsed a few shops in the vicinity.  I think we both felt cooped up because he agreed to go out on football Sunday.  Haha  It was a great ending to the weekend.

Pumpkin Spice

(T-Shirt & Skirt- H&M, Jacket- Zara, Shoes- Jeffrey Campbell, Rings- F21, Scarf- Thrifted)

I love the color of my skirt!  For some reason, when I see it, it instantly reminds me of fall and last night, LA got a dose of the colder weather.  Fall/winter is bittersweet for me.  On one hand, I love the layerings and the coats.  But on the other hand, it's just TOO cold! 

I hope you guys are having a great weekend and stay warm!

Holiday Plaid

(Top/Shorts/Vest- Forever 21, Tights- H&M, Booties- UO)

I cannot believe it's already November!  The holidays are just around the corner and something about this red plaid shirt reminds me of that (the cooler weather is a good reminder to). 

How are you guys planning to spend your holiday?

Sorry for the MIA, I've been busy with work and the internet at my apartment complex is moody.  I guess that's what happens when you're too cheap to pay for your own cable. HA!  My bf and I went to the Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA this past Sunday.  It was probably nice and well curated, but you couldn't tell with the herd of people pushing you along.  I wished I took advantage of this special show and went sooner.

Isn't this top darling?!?  It's Rory Beca collaboration with F21.  And had just arrived in the mail the day before and I couldn't wait to rip it's packaging and wear it.  The fit was perfect and I'm kinda kicking myself for not ordering it in other shades.  I learned two valuable lessons that day; don't wait to the last minute to do something and order what you like in EVERY SINGLE COLOR!
