Scarves Wishlist

If you're a frequent reader, you know that I have a slight obsession for scarves. I like adding them to my outfit to bring it a modern and chic flair. Seriously, scarves are one of the best fashion inventions ever because they can add serious oomph to your outfit while looking effortless. And it doesn't hurt that it can keep you cozy during those cooler nights!

If you are on the market for a new scarf, there is no better place to turn to for that than Scarves.com! I found out about this wonderful website from another blogger's website and then stalked looked them up on Instagram... I've been a fan since! You should check out my favorites from the knit and Pashmina scarves collection below:

Striped Swing + Sili Sunglasses


I've been seeing swing dresses on several bloggers lately and I couldn't resist the urge to jump in. Before you judge me for being a trend follower, I have been wanting to get a swing dress for myself because a) they look super comfortable and b) they are really comfortable! When I saw this striped swing dress at Dressgal, I wasted no second to add it to my cart. I knew I had to have it!


Dress: Dressgal (c/o) / Necklace: ZNU (c/o) / Sunglasses: Sili Sunglasses (c/o) / Watch: La Mer Collections (c/o) / Shoes: similar

It is one of those dresses that can be easily dressed up or down. That particular factor is what I've been looking for when shopping for dresses as of late. I hate when something can only be worn a specific way - versatility is a must! It also gives you more wear for your purchase. I decided to dress up this swing dress with glitter heels and statement necklace from ZNU.

And speaking of versatile pieces, don't you just love my new sunglasses? It's from Sili Sunglasses. I love this company! They allow you to customize your sunglasses from the lens to the frame to the arms. Mine is the White Matte Polarized Lens Sunglasses. It can be dressed up or down, too, so I thought it would go well with my dress. But that's not the best part yet, they ship worldwide for FREE. Check out Sili Sunglasses and start building your own custom sunglasses. 

How do you dress up or down an outfit?

Blogger 101: Am I A Blogging Addict?

Source

Before I put you off, I'd like to confess right here and now: I think I'm addicted to blogging. A couple or more years ago, fashion blogging was not such a big deal to me. I started it to provide an outlet for my love for fashion and all things related. In fact I probably posted about once in two weeks, or a week (if I'm not being lazy) at that time. I'm sure the blogging gods will despise me for that but hey I've come a long way.

Today, I am grateful and thankful for the steady stream of readers. And I do love the interactivity that comes with the whole blogging experience. Even though I do not promptly respond to the comments on my blog (or social media), I do read them as soon as I am notified on my e-mail (thank you, from the bottom of my heart). This and more have accumulated to develop more enjoyment for blogging. What was once a hobby has now become an extension of myself. As of now, I cannot imagine taking out blogging from my routine - which is impressive given how busy I already am with work. I still manage to squeeze in time to write posts for my blog.

You can therefore call me a blogging addict and I wouldn't argue with you on that. So, how do you know if you are addicted to blogging? Here are tell tale signs:

1. You find yourself constantly planning about what you want to do with your blog within the next 6 months or a year. Okay, this could just be me. My OCD strikes again. But yes, I do have short- and long-term goals for my blog. And I believe that any serious blogger should to. You've already invested so much time and effort into your blog, so why not dream big and aim for the next step, right?

2. You are constantly thinking up possible blog ideas. You might be at work, on commute or just reading other people's blogs - it will always go back to your own blog. What posts should I write this week? When will I shoot the photos for m post? The posts are the heart of your blog. Hence, you find yourself constantly brainstorming ideas.

3. You are worried about dud posts. It's embarrassing to admit but there are times wherein your posts prove to be a dud. It can be frustrating, too, given that you spent hours putting the post together... but then your readers do not share the same level of interest as you do about it. Just move on from it. It's not the end of your blogging career!

4. You are always on social media - either connecting with other bloggers or promoting your blog. It's fine. Social media has become somewhat of an extension to your blog.

If you pass the criteria above, then you are a certified blogging addict. But don't fret - if you enjoy every minute of the blogging experience, then it's still a good thing. As the famous quote says, "Do what you love and never work a day in your life." While it is true to some extent, blogging is undeniably a lot of work. But being happy with it and enjoying the experience that you get to share with your readers make every work you've put in worthwhile.

Do you consider yourself a blogging addict?

Sweater Weather

When the cold months come rolling around, you need to have a few cozy pieces to add to your wardrobe rotation. One of my favorite things to wear during the cooler months are sweaters/sweater tops. Sweaters are versatile and easy to wear or style. I've curated a few finds from two of my favorite places to shop online (Shein and Lulu's) that you may want to add to your fall/winter looks: 


Blue Cable Knit Sweater / Burgundy Cable Knit Sweater
Beige Sweater / Black and Ivory Cropped Sweater
Light Grey Sweater / Light Grey Cropped Cable Knit Sweater
Grey Dip Hem Ombre Sweater / V-Neck Apricot Sweater / Striped Slim Sweater

I love adding knit sweaters to my wardrobe because they are easy to transition and can be worn for not-so-cold days, too. Do any of these sweaters catch your fancy? What is your cold weather essential?

Maxi Moment


Maxis, for me, are like crotchless yoga pants. Don't be fooled - maxi skirts might make an outfit look pulled together but it took me literally a few minutes to get ready. And that is why I love them! Flowy maxi skirts, in particular, are my favorite! I've worn this look a few times but this is the first time that I had featured it on the blog, just because I thought it deserves some love. 


Top: Invogue Chic / Skirt: SM / Flats: Mendrez / Watch: La Mer Collections / Sunnies: Sunnies by Studios

I got this low-back floral top from a friend's shop - In Vogue Chic. The maxi skirt, on the other hand, is an old one. Therefore, this is one of those "shop my own closet" looks that I like doing more of recently. I just recently discovered that I've been doing too much shopping and have switched my mindset into reinventing looks from pieces that I already own and being smarter about where and when I shop.

It was only until I looked at the photos in my laptop that I realized the monochromatic theme in the look. Can you tell I love colors so much?
