There is nothing subtle about today's outfit. I wanted to go neon on neon with both my top and my footwear,  so I decided to wear white skinny jeans rather than a dark wash denim or even dark leggings. This then, allows the entire ensemble to look rather sophisticated without necessarily wearing "formal wear." I also used gold tone accessories to give the outfit an overall classy yet clean appeal.

For tonight's look I decided to wear this beautiful abstract floral maxi skirt along with a denim "bustier" like top and just singeing the waist with a thrifted vintage elastic waist belt. I also brought along with me this awesome crocheted & lace cardigan, perfect for the night time as it is starting to get a little bit chilly nowadays. Overall, like always I decided to go for a look that combines both comfort, sensibility and style. hehe!

(Now mind you, I am about 5'2 without heels and tonight I was wearing heels that are about 4 inches, which makes me roughly about 5'6ft. and yet she still towers over me by well, A LOT! hehe!)

I was incredibly humbled yet again to meet such amazing, genuine and successful people in the fashion industry. Tonight's event was my 3rd time and yet every time, I was completely blown away by the passion and how hard these people work on their own trade. I am beyond impressed on how they were able to build up their own brand and still able to keep their feet grounded.

Some of my favorite words from tonight's event:

"Fashion is about change" --Susan Ashbrook
"Education is something no one could take away from you." --Billy Ola Hutchinson
"Be humble and give the dignity that others deserve." --Michael Palladino
"Believe in yourself. Know yourself. No one should love you more than you do and no one should market yourself more than you do." --Uduak Oduok

Today's ensemble mainly consists of Joan & Jesula by Lorrain Tayne accessories. I tried wearing more subtle colors to make sure my multi-stand coral necklace stands out. However, with the subtlety of my outfits color palette aside, I decided to boost up the amo, texture wise.
Here you could see my beautiful lace top which contrasts but complements with the woven texture of my purse. Also, along with "darkness" from both my blazer and leggings, it showcases the bright coral necklace a lot more.
Anyway, I really love today's outfit because it looks very modern chic. The blazer adds sophistication while the nude spiked wedges makes it a little edgy and the necklace brings more of a playful side to the entire look.

FASHION FOCUS: BOYFRIEND BLAZER
Blazers are a great piece to wear to make something so simple and casual appear more well thought of and put together. In this look, I'm just wearing a regular print tee with the words "Museum Craft Design" which came in a goodie bag from a fashion show that I went to in San Francisco earlier this year. I then paired it with my favorite dark wash skinnies and navy oxford heels. I also added this stripe silk scarf that I thrifted a couple of years ago to just add a subtle pop of color to my outfit.
Since this California weather is barely transitioning to the fall season, blazers are a perfect item to keep you warm in the day and night time without making you incredibly stuffy.

Today was another lazy day! I seriously did not feel like getting out of bed, but of course I had to. So, instead of worrying about what to wear and take my time, I just decided to go for the obvious choice with a huge shirt, and when I say huge, I meant to way was gargantuan. Seriously, this shirt is so huge but I love it for many reasons and one of them is because it is super comfortable. Plus, I hate shirts that are too tight on my body as I feel extremely constricted in them. But, I digress! Along with this shirt, I am of course wearing, what else? leggings!!! Leggings are like my go-to when it comes to comfy bottoms and I don't care what all of you anti-leggings people think ;)
I also brought along this chiffon anchor print scarf for a little pop of color in my outfit as well as my go-to thrifted orange beanie which I stole/ borrowed from my little sister. Then, I just put on my finge Minnetonka boots and I was out the door just in time for class.

"Spring" cleaned even though it's technically not Spring anymore. Nonetheless, I decided to snap a quick photo of my tiny collection. I am seriously thinking of getting a bigger storage/organizer for all of these babies. I am running out of room in my own room >_< (and I didn't even realized that I have this much black shoes until I lined it up in order of color)

FASHION FOCUS: WEDGE SNEAKERS
The entire fashion world became addicted to this whole wedge sneaker combo this season. Because not only are they extremely comfortable but they are also incredibly stylish. They give you that super casual feel to your look but at the same time, it also gives you that little boost of height, for those of us shorties out there. I love how these can be worn with jeans, mini dresses, even some maxi dresses as well as skirts and short, you name it! These wedge sneakers will totally dress your ensemble down if you feel like you're a little over dressed for such a casual occasion. Nonetheless, I would say that this whole wedge-sneaker trend is a double thumbs up in my fashion book and definitely gets my vote.

Today's Sunday Chic look consists of a pleated collared top that I bought from Romwe.com paired with a high waist dark wash denim skirt and some spiked nude pumps. Since the colors are all a little neutral I decided to add a pop of color by using my yellow skinny waist belt.
This look is extremely feminine but the spikes on my heels add a bit of edge to it. It's sophisticated and modest at the same time. This look can be worn on Sundays for church or dinner parties.
