A few weeks ago I went to Zara – Seattle and was really impressed with their collection. First I didn’t know we had a Zara in the area, so I was pretty excited when I saw one in the city and second, I love the unique prints they have at their store. They remind me of African fabric (which cost an arm and a leg here), and of course I love prints! I have also been watching astronaut wives lately and this outfit kind of goes with that 60’s theme I really like.
This outfit is perfect for a dinner date, formal dinner party, church or a fall wedding, and the material is stretchy so its super comfortable and fits well in every size. You can also wear the top with different bottoms, and vice versa, since its 2 pieces.

So, I woke up really pissed today because last night, it was predicted to rain all day today, but guess what…..it was sunny all day!!!. I had changed my plans the day before based on the weather, even slept in, just to wake up to a beautiful sunny day (half of it wasted in bed haha). You’re probably frowning wondering what the heck is wrong with me, but I really wanted to hike today, I played with the idea of hiking in pouring rain but a lot of scenarios formed in my head (most of them involved me slipping and rolling down the mountain and into some sort of wild animal, deep in the forest haha). To be fair, it wasn’t that warm outside and the wind was on a whole another level…but I still wore my shorts out 🙂
Lets talk about what am wearing..My shorts are DIY, I made them from old Gap jeans 2 years ago. Super easy for those who’ve never made shorts from old unflattering jeans. All I did was measure the length that I wanted for the shorts then cut 2 inches lower so I could fold and iron the “cut end” and voila!, I had shorts. It’s hard for me to find comfortable shorts since I have broad hips and a smaller waist…..most shorts are made for “no hips and a small waist”, or “broad hips and a large waist”…make sense? :). In short, these shorts are among the few in my collection that I actually like an feel comfortable in.
My top is from Ross, and I love the sheer part on the back..so cute!. The booties and scarf complete the outfit well, kind of dramatic at the top and subtle at the bottom.
Have a nice rest of the weekend friends, I hope it’s sunny and warm where you are 🙂

I also binge read other blogs I like, and hadn’t had a chance to read recently. It’s so refreshing for me to read other people’s perspective on things related to daily
boring everyday life, and I also like getting inspired in terms of food, style, working out etc, some of my faves are delightfully tacky by Elizabeth, twenty seven by Michelle and Curious Natalia. I find this ladies blogs “from the heart” and very unique and personal. It’s obviously very brave for people to share their lives with the wide world web (the good and bad) and I respect such content, despite my disagree-ability or agree-ability. I honestly hope my blog will go into a similar direction, something someone can relate to, not just nice photos/clothes.
I have been enjoying reading other blogs and seeing everyone’s take on Valentine’s day and their outfits…so fun
This year for valentines I will be wearing a dress I bought last year from dailylook for a different “dress-up occasion”, it is one of my favorite dresses in terms of quality and style. Since February is somewhat cold here (esp at night) and I hate wearing heavy coats on a night out, this dress will be perfect because it covers me up and still makes me look hot 😍
