I am so ecstatic today because I have finally satisfied my craving for some new shoes! I picked up these pointed flats from Steven by Steve Madden the other day and I am completely in love with them (okay minus the fact that they’re a little painful to break in) but that’s beside the point! No pun intended. I just love the versatility of the combination of black and white. If you’ve been reading my past posts, you can tell I’ve been really feeling this monochrome color scheme! I feel like it’s a great transitional style for in between seasons!
I wanted to showcase these lovelies by keeping the outfit within the black and white color range. I kept it simple with some black cuffed trousers from H&M and my white American Apparel crop tank. I added the belt to add some finesse…and to also help keep my pants up because these are technically not meant to be high waisted but rather loose hip huggers!
My two cents on these shoes are that, for one, they have a great design. The texture of the material is sort of like a fake snakeskin, but the shoe itself is very sturdy. The only thing is that because it’s sturdy the front half and also the back strap digs into my foot for now, but I’m crossing my fingers that they will adjust to the shape of my feet in due time! ….and hopefully that due time means soon….but hey, there is that saying “beauty is pain” right?
This outfit is perfect for a stylish summer day out. Ever wanted to wear a turtleneck while it was hot out? Well, me neither, but this American Apparel crop turtleneck in burgundy is one of my favorite summer pieces! It provides a sophisticated silhouette while exposing the shoulders for a more summer-y feel. Because this top is cropped, it provides a quaint contrast between the covered up neck region and the slightly exposed stomach. I paired this with cream lace tiered shorts as well as a gold statement necklace and my favorite Michael Kors watch. When putting the colors burgundy and gold together, it gives off a very regal effect on the outfit, which is really what I was striving for since I wore this outfit while walking around all the famous places in Hollywood. This outfit is great if you want to look polished on a hot summer day without sacrificing comfort!

Went on a spontaneous date to downtown Kirkland with my boyfriend for an “end-of-quarter” destressing! It was a cloudy Spring day that was mildly warm with a cool breeze so I decided to wear this lightweight faux leather-sleeve utility jacket from Nordstrom’s. We walked along the quaint, little street filled with small boutiques, bakeries, and cafes, and, of course, as a dessert connoisseur I had to check out this dessert shop called Sweet Cakes! They had so many delicious cakes and pastries from cake pops to mini cheesecakes like this red velvet one we decided to pick up. It was so moist and had just the perfect amount of sweetness. I definitely recommend checking this place out if you’re ever in Kirkland!
Afterwards, we went on a long, cliche romantic walk by the “beach”! I say “beach” in quotations because this beach was nothing compared to the beaches back home as in instead of sand there was just a vast bunches of pebbles strewn along the shore.
Ah, spring. Love is in the air! Just like these lovely baby ducklings we found wading and body-surfing by the water. They were so adorable!
