OOTD: Lunch Outing

Hello everyone! I recently met up with one of my friends from high school for lunch on Sunday! I decided to go for a simple, light-colored, and chic outfit. My shirt and navy pants are from H&M and my boots are from Urban Outfitters. My necklace was a gift from my mom and the other accessories are shown in the end of the post! Props to my little brother for capturing these shots!
 

 

Makeup wise, I wore my Revlon Colorstay Foundation, my new Stila Jewel Eyeshadow in Golden Topaz, my Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner, and my Makeup Forever Moisturizing Soft Shine Lipstick in the shade Natural N9.

I bought my Terner watch on a cruise and love that the face is made of quartz! I’m also obsessed with my new rose gold bracelet from Baublebar. See my previous Baublebar order here.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Current Favorite Arm Candy!

Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you my current favorite accessories to wear together! Here is a description of each item from left to right:

  • Michael Kors Runway Twist Watch– I love that the strap on this watch is actually a silver and ivory chain! It is so easy to match outfits with! I also like that there aren’t diamonds on this watch so that I can wear more shiny bracelets alongside it without it looking like overkill.
  • Versona Silver Disco Bracelet– I love that this bracelet is so shiny & cute! If you haven’t been to Versona yet, you need to go! There is an overwhelming amount of jewelry there & the quality is great! Some people describe it as a cheaper version of Charming Charlie’s.
  • Silver Link Bracelet– This was a gift from a friend!

Have a great week!

New Butterfly Scarf!

Hey everyone! Something I always buy a lot of when I’m in China is scarves! There are so many cute prints and a lot of them are sold at good prices!

My favorite one I recently picked up is this pale pink and gray butterfly scarf! It is very easy to match with outfits and keeps me warm as well.

You will be seeing more of the scarves I bought in my future posts! 🙂

My New Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses!!


Guys, oh my goodness I am so excited to finally own a pair of Ray-Ban Aviators! I have been eyeing these for almost three years now. I recently felt like it would be nice to have a high-end, casual pair of sunglasses that would match everything but would also protect my eyes. I ordered the RB3025 model in the polarized version and they exceed my expectations!

One thing I love about the aviators is that they are so light weight! They are also small enough to fit just about anywhere (purse, sunglass holder in your car, etc). Overall, they are the perfect pair of sunglasses to me.

If you want to order them online, you can find them here.

Can’t wait to sport these in the city!

Fabulous Friends: Fall Favorites

Fall is my favorite season. With the changing leaves, cooler weather, and outdoor activities, how could you not enjoy yourself? In addition to loving Fall, I also love Fall fashion. Therefore, I wanted to know what my friends’ favorite fall trends were. Here is what they said:

  • 8 friends said their favorite Fall accessory was scarves
  • 1 friend mentioned how she loves colorful scarves that look good with jeans, boots, and a solid colored shirt
  • 1 friend said she goes for a “good, neutral pashmina” which is an Indian scarf made of fine cashmere wool- she wears it kind of like a shaw and it looks effortlessly pretty!
  • 3 people mentioned their go-to is infinity scarves. 2 people said they love big sweaters because they’re cozy and warm (both items are worn by Miley Cyrus on the right)

The next biggest thing mentioned by my friends were boots (5 people said this). 2 people specifically said they loved tall chocolate riding boots for the Fall (pictured to the left). Another 5 friends named one of the following boot trends (from left to right):

1. Combat boots                     4. Short Boots
2. Doc Martens                       5. Black Riding Boots
3. Tall Tan Frye Boots             6. Fringe Boots

Other trends mentioned by my friends were peacoats, stud earrings (“perfect for everyday or you can get snazzy and dress them up”), pumpkin spice lattes, and beanies.

Lastly, I wanted to share my three favorite trends for Fall. They are a tribal printed sweater, layered clothing (my friend also mentioned this), and a wine purse! These trends go perfectly together!

Have a fantastic Fall!

REVIEW: Ulta’s "Vintage Violet" Nail Polish

Hey! I wanted to share a nail color with you all that I’ve been really liking! It is called “Vintage Violet” by ULTA. This is a color that would be perfect for any time of year whether it be summertime or the beginning of the year. A great thing about this nail polish is the quality- it lasted over a week without chipping a bit! I would definitely recommend trying this shade and other ones from this brand!
P.S. My ring was a gift from my aunt in China!
