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?
Super late post, but I wore this during my birthday celebration weekend when my family and I stayed in SF for the 4th of July. It was an absolutely amazing time and it was so great to spend quality time with my parents since college has kept me from home for so long. We stayed at one of the oldest hotels in the city atop this huge (and scarily steep) hill. The hotel’s interior felt so luxurious! I truly felt like royalty for a night during my stay there.
After staying up late watching the fireworks (which were delayed due to the classic SF fog), we made it our mission to hunt down some quality ice cream that next morning. But first! Breakfast. We ate at a cafe near Union Square which had some bomb fresh-squeezed OJ and warm, toasty french toast.
Back to our hunt for ice cream! We decided to check out Mitchell’s in the Mission District on our way home because we heard they had lots of filipino ice cream flavors (and being filipino and prideful of course we had to go try it out). I got the halo-halo flavor which honestly did emulate similar flavors that you would get in halo-halo : ube, coconut, even the jellies! It definitely was a perfect end to a short but sweet trip back home.
Hi guys! Here’s a quick outfit compilation from my trip to Hawaii! Great for spring/summer weather! Hope you guys are inspired and enjoy 🙂

Burgundy maxi dress (H&M) / Rose button-up (Thrifted) / Michael Kors Gilmore Cross-body (Macy’s) / Diba buckled shoes (Nordstrom Rack)
Lately my mood style has been girly and comfortable while still keeping it looking classy and sophisticated. This burgundy tank maxi dress layered under this rose-colored button-up gives off just the right girly color scheme without being super bubblegum pink pink pink if you get what I mean! I also added some leggings underneath my maxi for extra warmth.
I wore this outfit to grab some breakfast with my parents and my boyfriend. On the way back to the car, we came across a huge family of squirrels. They kept running around so it was hard to catch some footage of them but it was pretty epic to say the least.
