DIY Boyfriend Jeans

Above Tank: Zara (found here) | Hand Chain Bracelet: Santa Barbara Boutique (also love this one here) | Sandals: Halogen (found here) | Jacket: Anthropologie (found here) | Jeans: Old Navy (Found here) | Bag: Burberry Orchard House Check | Sunglasses: D&G


To turn any old pair of jeans into frayed boyfriend jeans, all you need is a pair of scissors. Take your jeans, or shorts, and lay them flat. Use the blade of the scissors to distress and loosen the fibers in the areas you wish until they begin to thin and fray (I did the knee areas and back pockets). Be sure not to make large holes or gaps to keep a natural look. Pull out the threads to assist the frayed look. Then throw them in the washer/dryer and you’re done! The more they’re worn, the better they look!

Santa Barbara, UCSBstrong

Dress: Black Halo (found here) | Sandals: Halogen (found here

Last weekend I attended the wedding one of my UCSB alumnus in the bright and beautiful downtown Santa Barbara. I decided to change up my routine and go with a classic bold, black number. This was mainly because this dress by Black Halo exposes just the right amount of skin, appropriate for the wedding. 

I paired the beautiful dress with my bold leather whites for a black & white Spring harmony.

White on White



Blazer: Mango (here) | Jeans: Max Studio (similar here) | Sandals: Halogen (here) | Top: Zara | Sunglasses: Dolce&Gabbana | Jewelry: Cara,  H&M | Bag: Imported from Iran

There is something to love about the simplicity and freshness of all white. Head to toe in white gives a crisp, clean look. Be sure to remember proportion is everything when wearing all of any one color.

Are you ready for an all-white-everything summmmaaa?

Incoco Sticky Nails


Nails: INCOCO 

If you're into multitasking at your desk like me, these sticky nails are the best way to go. I've worked with other brands before that had issues such as not sticking or would take forever to remove. However, this brand, Incoco, makes life seamless, simple and fun--and even lasts 2 weeks. All you need is a nail file and a few minutes. I've gotten so good at it that my record is 7 minutes for both hands! 

Yes, I can do my nails faster than the guys can wash my car. Literally, this happened.

Jan Tan and I fed our bodies with goodness at the famous Fig and Olive in Newport Beach. In place of butter, they use olive oil from the French Rivera for all of their dishes.
menu’s core ingredient of olive oil, which we use in place of butter in our dishes.
 Our palates were mostly aroused by this pulpo gallega below. Nom Nom Nom....

We shop together...We take Selfies together ...

Holly chose this bright Springtime dress as its keyhole and slim-fit showed off her svelte curves, while keeping her modest with long sleeves. As for me, I fell in love with this long double-slit dress the moment I put it on. I just couldn't stop dancing, as it screams playfulness.
