EARTHY TONES


I'm moving to New York City in 3 days! Currently I'm packing up the essentials (which means I'm leaving behind around 80% of all my clothes) and just hoping to buy everything or anything I need once I'm there. Amidst all the packing and cleaning, I'm still trying to make the most of my summer, and literally, I'm visiting all the places I've never been and surrounding myself with friends. If anyone has any suggestions as to where I should go visit/eat in New York, let me know! 

I really tried to color coordinate with this outfit. Purple is a rather difficult color for me to work into any outfit. But with this lavender top, I noticed that the floral detail on the shorts paired very well with it. And because the shorts were a light shade of denim, I leaned toward warmer colors and earthy tones. Thank you for reading!

FLEETING MOMENT


I'm back from my vacation/volunteering in Taiwan! It was an unique experience (so much food) and country to explore. Besides visiting all the top tourist spots, I also got the amazing opportunity to teach English at Hoping Jr. High School (nestled in the HePing mountains in Taichung county). Such an incredible month and I met a lot of amazing people along the way! I also learned some aboriginal dancing (shoutout to my adorable kids!). I'm planning my next trip to Taiwan already!! On a side note, after experiencing the humidity in Taiwan, I have to say Southern California weather is top-notch. I immediately died coming out of the airport; the air was dry and cool, and I wasn't sweating like crazy!


I went for an almost normcore-inspired outfit. Rely on a crop top and denim shorts to get you through the summertime.
