White in Summer

Shop The Mint Day To Dream Dress, Ivory

I’m not sure why, but white eyelet dresses are just so quintessentialy summer. It definitely has been a favorite go-to dress for me lately. Pair it up with a flea market embroidered bag, and I’ve got myself a stylish boho look that can withstand the summer heat.

Tiger Shorts

June 16, 2016

Topshop MOTO badge mom shorts

This tiger shorts is one of those piece of clothing that immediately struck me as I walked into the store. As most of my Topshop shopping stories goes: I came in looking for one thing, got distracted by all the pretty shiny things, and leave with much more than what was on my shopping list. But the shorts is too cute to pass up — plus you know I’m a sucker for all things feline related.

Staycation Essentials

Desirelist Staycation Essentials

About a year or so ago, I was in a cab when I heard the NYC tourism tagline “for the world, it’s the trip of a lifetime. For you, it’s a subway ride away.” This really struck a chord with me. Why let the tourist have all the fun, right? I’ve been in the big apple for a few years now, and I don’t think I have even scratched the surface in hitting all of the attraction of the city — but not for lack of trying. To assist me in my NY exploration mission, there’s a few essentials that I can’t do without.

Nautica in Nude

June 7, 2016

Nautica Woven Sleeveless Shell

There’s something fun about the idea of wearing all nude. Not sure if it’s because I’m just a huge fan of doing matching pieces. Or if there’s something about it that appeals to the juvenile 4th grader part of my brain that thinks it’s funny to wear clothes that make you look naked from far away. Either way, I’m into it.

Review: Le Mieux Skin Perfecter

Le Mieux Skin Perfecter

Lord knows I’ve had tons of struggles with my skin. I mean, come on, I thought as you get old and have to deal with fine lines and wrinkles creeping in, you also get to shed the skin problems of your teenage years. But alas, the pesky teenage pimples just mutated to adult acne for me, of which I have to deal with on top of the barrage of new skin issues adulthood brings. No matter what I do, my skin will always have its good and bad days (the latter tends to occur around that “time of the month”). However I find that I have more of the good days when I am diligent with my cleansing and exfoliation. Not being too aggressive with at-home extraction also helps, since these can cause pustule. So when I came a across the 4-in-1 cleanser/exfoliator/extractor/infusor Le Mieux Skin Perfecter, which seems to have a lot of promise to help me with my layers of skin concerns, I had to try it out. Because, who doesn’t want perfect skin, right?

Two Piece In Stripes

June 2, 2016

Tobi Winona Striped Strapless Set

I have been so into two piece sets lately. Who doesn’t love two for the price of one, am I right? It’s been a favorite tactic of late when I’m shopping: look for the two piece sets hidden in the dresses section. Obviously, the main attraction of the outfit is the matching pieces. But then you’ll also get the extra bonus of being able to wear just the top and the bottom with other pieces you already have in your closet. I already have in mind to pair the top from this set with short shorts for an upcoming music festival I’m going to. Since I definitely cannot be baring my belly at work, I can wear just the bottom, paired with a black blouse and an oversized white blazer for work. The possibilities are endless — and I love it!

Tobi Anisha Midi Jumpsuit

We’ve had some weird weather this spring, which has made dressing stressful to say the least. Not to mention the increasingly sad pile of newly acquired crop tops, short shorts and rompers thats been sitting in my closet, just waiting to see the light of day. Well it seems like the weather gods are keep to make up for the spring funk, just in time for Memorial Day long weekend. We had gorgeous weather, with just a sprinkle of rain, for all four days (yes my work is very generous and gave us Friday off also). And of course you know what my favorite uniform for frolicking (and driking) in the sun: the romper.

Free People Rarebird Romper - Marlin

Those of you who follow the blog know all about my love for adult onesies, aka rompers and jumpsuits. I’m also a huge fan of matching two-pieces. So when I had a chance to combine these two, of course I jumped on it. So you’re probably wondering how something can be both a romper and a matching two-piece. Well what I’m wearing is technically a romper, but looks like two piece because of how the top is set. So in this outfit, I’m all party and midriff in the front, and romper business in the front.

Lightly Pink

May 24, 2016

Have you ever had one of those moments where you knew you wanted an article clothing after seeing it for a millisecond? I definitely had a “love at first sight” moment with this pink long blazer from Topshop. As usual, I came in for something specific and came out with something totally different — and spent way more money than intended. But you know I think it’s totally worth every penny and this coat and I will have a long and fruitful relationship ahead of us. There so many was to style this jacket. From accenting a simple black outfit, like I did in this blog, to dressing up a casual short shorts and shirt combo — the possibilities are endless!

Somedays Lovin Bohemia Off Shoulder Romper

You wouldn’t know it from all the unseasonably cold weather we’ve been having lately, but summer is just around the corner. Which means it’s almost time for leisurely bike rides in Governor’s Island, picnics in Central Parks, and spending a fun filled music festival day in Randall’s Island. My favorite uniform for frolicking in the sun, doing all these fun activities, is of course the romper.
