Fall's coming and I'm digging this camel color! You know what else is this color? PSL! Pumpkin Spiced Lattes! So I got one the other day, and couldn't finish the whole thing because it was just too sweet and not pumpkin tasting. I hope it was just a bad batch.. or is this a sign that I'm getting old and can't eat too much sugar? Anyway.. I'm super excited for sweater weather so we can start wearing leather, denim and suede - all the materials that were way too hot for the summer.

The Boots I Bought Twice

A few months back, I brought my first pair of over-the-knee boots on our weekend trip to Sacramento as I thought they’d be perfect for the weather and everyday sightseeing. During the trip, I tagged along with Feng on a photoshoot that he was doing for singer, Vince Vicari. Little did I realize we were going to be standing in a muddy open field for a few hours! Mud stuck to all of our shoes, and it took some time to shake most of it off afterwards, but unfortunately, some of the mud sunk deep into my faux suede boots. Thankfully, these boots were so affordable I decided to chuck my old, muddy ones and buy a new pair! I really do recommend these if you're looking for a fun over-the-knee! :) They also conveniently come in either flats or platforms! Check them out at the bottom of the post!

Work Appropriate

Lately, I've been trying to be more wary of my monthly spending. With phone bills, rent, utilities, food and of course shopping, I can really make a dent! Here's an outfit I put together that I can wear to work and wear out for under $100! And yes, like I always say, I only buy comfy clothes..

Tee: Zara
Trousers: Zara
Heels: Sole Society
photographer: erich chen
hair/makeup: sarah park

Black and White

Love this jacket from Nasty Gal and I can't wait to wear it out! I love that the sleeves are sheer, which is perfect for the breezy nights here in LA. The front has just the right amount of shimmer. Not too flashy, not too fancy. Gives it the right amount of feminine touch in photos :)
I had a lot of fun at this photo shoot. Turned out to be one of the more productive ones, and ended up getting a lot more content than anticipated! I absolutely loved working with this group of creatives! It was the first time we all directly worked with each other and we turned out to be a great team! The photographer, hair and makeup artist, stylist were all on point! Check out their websites below! They're amazing, talented and hardworking artists to work with just in case you are looking to hire. :)

I bet you can't guess how many pins are in my hair!
