Chicnova: Boho Chic


Made from knit fabric.
High-low hemline.
Batwing sleeves.
2 big front pockets.
Loose fit.

This is my first actual loose, over-sized cardigan.
I was actually expecting it to be a bit wider, longer, and more over-sized, but I still really like it.
I love the way it falls. It gives an outfit the instant "boho-chic" vibe.
This cardigan is seriously so versatile. It goes with EVERYTHING! I'm not kidding.
When I first got it in the mail, I wore it every single day. Seriously.

I decided to wear my Forever 21 maxi skirt with this cardigan. I was going for a bohemian look, so I thought that it would be perfect!
To give some life to the outfit, I paired the skirt with this really colorful spaghetti strap top that I got from Forever 21. And a I wore a black lace bandeau under because this top tends to show too much cleavage. Haha.

You guys know me and my accessories:

- Persunmall necklace
- Geneva watch
- Twisted Orchid handbag
- Gold strappy sandals

Put it all together and you've got a summer boho-chic look!

Persunmall: The Girlier, The Better


Made of cotton.
Mint green shade.
Lace pattern.
Quarter length sleeves.
Round neck.
Loose fit.

I have been eyeing this top from Persunmall for quite some time now.
There was something about it that always got my attention, but for some reason, I always put off getting it. Until I finally gave in. Haha.

Now, I see why I was drawn to it. It describes me.
The bright color, the girly lace pattern, the scallop hemline, everything!

I paired it with my pink, girly, floral pencil skirt from H&M.
The top is already feminine by itself, but you guys know me...

It was extremely hot, so I opted for a high ponytail with my usual headband.
I have my watch and my bracelet, along with some statement rings.
The Coach handbag was from my mom. I found it while I was rummaging through her old clothes. JACKPOT!
And to finish off the look, I wore my brown gladiator sandals.

The mall wasn't too busy, so I got to do some pretty easy and laidback shopping with my sister.
And of course, a shopping date wouldn't be complete without Jamba Juice!
I love trying new flavors every time.

How about you? What's your favorite Jamba smoothie flavor?

OASAP: Peonies Love

Do you a fancy a girly outfit?
Well, what do you think about this one?


Made of Cotton blend.
Floral/Peony print.
Shawl collar/lapel.
Open front.
Cuffed long sleeves.
2 front slip pockets.
Back box pleated detail.
Regular fit.

Okay guys, can we just take a moment to bask in the beautiful-ness of this piece of clothing right before our very eyes?!
Like all of my other clothes, I am very much in love with every single thread sewn into this blazer.
I love how it's both masculine and feminine at the same time.
It's a "feminine-ized" blazer, I would say.
The floral print is my favorite part. This piece would make a simple outfit look fun and crazy.
It can also be worn to work. It's a great way to put a little "spice" on your every day *ahem* dull *ahem* work clothes. Haha, (wink wink)

I wore this blazer over my denim vest tucked into a bright pink skater skirt that I got from Forever 21.
I thought that the pink skirt will pop out of the dark blue hue of the blazer and girly-fy it up a notch.

Oasap Peony print blazer | Style Code denim vest | Forever 21 pink skater skirt | Shoetopia oxford booties | Gold stud earrings | Pink watch | H&M bracelets

Now, an outfit will not be complete without ACCESSORIES!!!
For my earrings, I wore a bejeweled oval shaped stud earrings that I got from a local boutique.
My watch is from Australia. I won it from a giveaway a year or two ago and I'm absolutely in love with it.
My little bracelets are from H&M, I believe. And my rings are from Oasap and a local boutique that I can't quite remember.
And last but not least, my little black oxford booties are from Shoetopia.
I was originally going to wear white wedges, but I just opted for these booties to give the look a little bit of
an edge.

YouTube: Almost Is Never Enough

It's been a while since I've shared with you guys songs that I have been loving, so here it is...

Almost Is Never Enough by Ariana Grande feat. Nathan Sykes.

'Cause sooner or later
We'll wonder why we gave up
The truth is everyone knows

Almost, almost is never enough
So close to being in love
If I would have known that you wanted me
The way I wanted you
Then maybe we wouldn't be two worlds apart
But right here in each others arms

Here we almost, we almost knew what love was
But almost is never enough

I think this song is so sad!!!
