Thankful

Haven’t had Thanksgiving with the family for a few years now so it was quite a treat getting everyone together for a reunion. Besides having lots of delicious home cooked meal, this time I made sure I balanced out all the Thanksgiving food with some outdoor activities. It really was a breath of fresh air running in the neighborhood and at the Stanford Dish. Compared to LA, the air smelled and even tasted fresh and crisp.

The last picture of course wasn’t taken outdoors, but I couldn’t skip showing off my Black Fridays purchases. I was never a believer in Black Friday because I’ve never found any spectacular deals on that day. This time, however, I stumbled accidentally at a nearby Nike Factory store and went nuts with their special deals. Needlessly to say I’m pretty much set on workout clothes for awhile (till next Black Friday?).

An Anniversary

AllSaints coat and sweatshirt/dress, Stuart Weitzman boots, Phillip Lim Mini Pashli, Swatch watch, Brandy Melville braclet

Celebrated our two year anniversary over the weekend with some art at the Getty and food + wine at DTLA’s Bestia. Can’t believe that was the first time I’ve been to the Getty having lived in So Cal for so many years. I’ve also wanted to try Bestia for awhile now and finally got a chance to. Can’t even remember the last time I dressed up and had a nice and relaxing day due to my crazy work schedule. Definitely appreciated the great company and food. Getting an AllSaints dress as a present doesn’t hurt either. :)

Happy 2 year boo!

Zipped Sweater

Another gem I found at & Other Stories, a textured zipped sweater; so easy to wear as well as being warm and cozy!

The Trench Game

Trench from Taiwan, Textile by Elizabeth & James pants, Doc Martens brogues

Every girl needs a good trench coat, and I like mine slightly different from the typical trench. This one with hi-lo and handkerchief hems I got two years ago still make me happy. Good finds in Asia are never overrated.

Stories

& Other Stories Cotton Dress, Doc Marten boots

I’m so excited that the brand I discovered when I was in Europe, & Other Stories, opened its first US store in New York last month along with shipping to the US! Since I live in California, I was patiently waiting for its online site to be made available to ship to the US, and I was awarded with a discount code and this is one of the purchases I made. Sucks I can’t get a good picture of this dress. I wear so much black and it’s the hardest color to capture details on. It’s a cozy hi-lo, curved hem dress that’s great underneath winter layers.

Their site is full of inspiring images and fun campaigns – check them out here but be careful of your wallet!

Transition

Free People dress, Ella Moss fur vest, Frye boots

A fur vest is a great way to transition into colder weather by pairing it with a summer dress. Unfortunately when I brought out the fur, LA decided to be 88 degrees again!

A “Slit” Second

Forever 21 maxi dress, Sam Edelman sandals, mom’s denim jacket

Southern California weather suddenly and finally taking a chillier turn. This will probably the last time in long time a maxi dress with a slit will be worn.

School Dropout

AllSaints sweatshirt, H&M skirt, Jeffrey Campbell boots, Brandy Melville cross necklace

Skirt with studded knee high boots – and I’d like to name it high school dropout – but high school is so far from me I’m too embarrassed to put it in the title.
