california girl in a glittering arcade.


Zara cardigan w/ elbow patches | H&M cami | Zara tulip skirt | Jeffrey Campbell suede El Carmen

Oh my, I must apologize for the posting hiatus. I was in California for the past few days until last night. The break from blogging world was much needed though, as time spent with family and friends was blissful indeed. I didn't quite neglect my blogging duties, as I have several outfit posts taken in California in store for you, my lovely readers. This is the first of the L.A. installment, taken at the playful Santa Monica pier. It turned overcast that afternoon, and temperatures dropped about 20 degrees, which was quite a relief. The bright yellow skirt and eye candy shoes lent from my darling sister, Jennifer, were a sure way to coax out some sunshine. And you can't stroll around the Santa Monica pier without having a bite of cotton candy, trying your luck on an arcade machine, or enjoying the view of beach commotion by the seaside.


L.A. was quite fun for me and the bf. We celebrated me and my twin's birthday, had my first blogger meetup, got to empty my wallet all over store sales, spent the day at the spa (first mud clay bath ever), ate delicious food, and got to spend time with my family. More pictures from the L.A. trip to come, I promise!
