In high school, all those years ago, there was a popular, much-beloved boy that kept trying to bring his favorite pants into fashion. Every day was a new shade, a new attempt, and each time I told myself:
I will never wear that. Ever. Seriously, never.
Flash forward years later and here I am, about to espouse my new found love for this particular fabric. At this point, you’re probably saying “Hurry up and tell me already!” Well, ladies and gentlemen, that fabric is none other than:
If I reach further back in my memories, I can distinctly remember wearing corduroy in early elementary school. I absolutely loved it and would often refuse to take it off. Corduroy is incredibly soft and comfortable, as well as great at keeping you warm; seeing as I live in the northeast of the US, that trait is something that I will need in the coming months.
I actually started to see signs of this a few months ago and when I continued to see it crop up in influencers’ Instagrams and blog posts, I knew it was a trend to adopt early on!
Take a look a Negin Mirsalehi, creator of hair care brand Gisou (1|2) and parent of an adorable pup named Mosey, and see a perfect example of how to adapt Corduroy this Fall/Winter.

The genius behind this outfit is that it implements this trend using items most people already have! Corduroy is especially appealing in a richer brown color or millennial pink. I’ve already seen corduroy trickling into stores, whether it is the sapphire blue corduroy miniskirt with 70’s vibe applique at Target or it’s the golden-hued brown belted Continue reading “The 3 Pieces You Need This Winter”→
Red has so far been the main attraction of Fall, with almost everyone owning a pair of red sock boots or over the knee boots. But during all of the fashion weeks occurring over the last few weeks, one color in particular stole the show:
Whether it be the Dior SS18 Green T-Rex or the green accents on the dresses in the Tory Burch show, the color of fresh grass was everywhere.
Here are a few picks you can wear now until you can get your hands on the SS18 items, which are shown below the picks:
Wow. Just wow, have I been busy. This month I moved back to the US, which entailed the menial bureaucratic nonsense that any cross-country move requires. Word to the wise though, I strongly recommend against using a Korean bank as your main account. In short, Korean banks are unnecessarily complicated. – End rant-
Now that I’m back in the states I have this unique opportunity. I’m getting paid to be on vacation for a month, meaning I have plenty of time to explore all of the beauty products that I missed out on this last year. The Korean government heavily taxes imported goods from outside the Asian continent, causing some products to be ridiculously expensive. I’m talking about you L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream ($64 in the US but 100,000 won in Seoul). 😦
Now is the perfect time to research and invest in a few of the most unanimously recommended products from this summer.

What really drew my attention this month was the variety of gorgeous shoes. A hands-down favorite of the bunch is the continuing trend of mules. In high school, my mum let me raid her shoe rack and in it, I found the most amazing woven brown leather mules that I wore to death. Unfortunately, those beloved mules bit the dust last year, right before the mule trend started gaining momentum, preventing them from their due glorification.
May has been a month filled with blooming flowers and fashion, with lingering elements of the past.
As a part of the process of becoming a better blogger, I read hundreds of blog posts in an month and after staring at pictures for such a long time, one naturally starts to recognize what items are the must-haves of the moment. The following items are some of the most viral and my personal favorites! (Let’s just say Gucci’s game is strong…)
With this steady climb in temperature comes a need to include lighter fabrics in a our wardrobe, both in thickness and color. Lighter fabrics inherently breathe more and lighter colors absorb less heat, meaning I’m less inclined to faint from heat-stroke; One too many days on a tennis court on a hot summer day teaches a person that. The texture and density of your average, run-of-the -mill gingham does a phenomenal job at keeping us cool in the blazing heat, so much so that it has become an iconic summer fabric and a favorite amongst American southerners.
