.: away too long :.

How I miss blogging! I've got too many excuses already but here's to hope I get to write more :)

Have been trying to wear more pants instead of skirt lately. I love how comfy my Joe's Jeans is! I'm trying to pull the-boyfriend-jeans look that has been making a comeback this summer. Not too easy since I have short legs; cuffs make my legs look shorter. I just rolled the cuffs a bit higher and pair it with heels.

.: odd summer :.

What a weird weather here in SoCal. It's overcast, rainy and humid. I got fooled yesterday, looking at the gray sky and thinking it might be cold. Oh wishful thinking... I found this pair of jeans at the clearance section in Nordstrom Rack. Petite sz 32/12, for $39. Gotta love the Rack. It's still a tad too long for me, so I will need to alter it. I'm starting to love jeans & pants now :)

.: weekend recap :.

Oh summer... You're such an unwelcome guest in my doorstep. The one thing that cheers me up about summer are all the sales that seem to be going on everywhere. While they do lightened my wallet considerably, the new purchases make blazing Summer heats bearable. Like this silk blouse.

.: red, white and dots :.

Life is still very hectic lately. Apparently not all women are multitaskers. Guess which gal cannot do all things at once :) Thankfully this skirt is a multitasker. I can wear it with so many things. Right now I'm loving button-down shirts, but to keep it less corporate I added fun accessories like this belt.

.: bow overloads :.

I like things with bows; big ones and small ones, on shoes and on blouses... There's something so quintessentially elegant about bows. Valentino does the most amazing bows, but kate spade's bows are much simpler for everyday usage. I fell in love with this skirt a while ago but it was way out of my budget, so when she has her 75% off sample sale I immediately snabbed this skirt and it has been hanging in my closet ever since. I finally got the chance to wear it last week. The thing I love about kate spade's clothes is they fit perfectly all the time and it makes you feel like such a girly girl. And I intended to wear this shoes on our wedding but it's just not a very practical shoes for such a long event :)

.: maximized :

The tricky part of wearing maxi skirt for a petite-12 like me is the risk of looking frumpy because of all the volume. But I really, really want a maxi skirt; so this one actually works because the lining is a few inches shorter than the bottom lining. In a hindsight I probably should wear a more fitted top but I was really in the mood to wear this beauty because it's a gift from my dearest husband :)
