All About Maxi

It is finally warming up in LA and all I can think about is maxi season. I own a handful of clothes but nothing makes me happier than adding full-length dresses and skirts. I'm delighted to share with you a beautiful piece by Shein. This elegant maxi dress features a paisley pattern, fluttery silhouette and tulip hem. With a flattering surplice neckline, this delicate piece is crafted with a modern wrap design and a tie at the waist.

What I love about Shein is not only their competitive pricing but also their unique collection. You think Forever 21 is big? Think again. This brand carries the latest trends with the best deals on the market. Shein has daily promotions and discounts site wide. Their dress category is always my favorite to shop at. With regards to fit, I would size up because their clothes fit slightly tighter than normal. With a 25" waist and narrow shoulders, I fit into a small regularly but I would prefer a size medium at Shein.
I went ahead and put together a list of amazing maxis by Shein for you! The best part is, they are all under $40. These are perfect for any occassion this season. Happy maxi shopping!

Island Hopper

Hands down, this is the cutest swimsuit I own. Think one-piece is boring? Think again. Designed with the Izabal palm print on top, bold black-and-white stripes on bottom and a sassy front cutout, this swimsuit features an open back tied together by two bows.

Thanks to Albion Fit, I am excited to share a full review on the look, fit and quality of this one-piece.

My favorite part about the Island Hopper is the beautiful, vibrant palm print. I feel like I'm on vacation running around in this suit. The fit is excellent and it wraps around my body like a glove. I wear a size XS which fits 31.5" on the bust,  24" on the waist and 34" on the hip. If you're a size 25 like me, you'll have no problem wearing the XS! 

With a flattering cutout at front, this swimsuit actually resembles more of a two-piece bikini. The cutout is positioned in the center of the torso while the bottom rises up to be a high-waist. The retro style reminds me of the vintage swimwear that were made famous by pinup models in the 50s. Plus, with an optional halter strap, I can decide to wear it alone like a bandeau top. The double bows at the back add extra dimension to the suit and the bottom is shaped with the perfect amount of peek.

Knits n Satin

January is coming to an end, but I'm still letting the new year sink in. Who else is needing another vacay? I am desperately looking for reasons to get out of my constant work, sleep and repeat. Next month I'll be heading back to the bay to catch my sister's baby shower. Out of the many occasion I've been there, this is definitely the most anticipated. Nothing excites me more than seeing another Lam girl born into the world! Plus, I'm going to be an auntie for the first time.

We stumbled upon a small desert surrounded by rocks. The sun was almost setting and we jumped on the perfect moment to shoot. I wore my choker dress made from a shimmering satin and decided to dress it down with a knit sweater and a pair of casual sneakers.

I absolutely love mixing two different fabrics in an outfit. I'm all about adding contrast texture to make your look more interesting, even with the same colors. For example, green on green: a suede top combined with a pair of denim would deliver better than a fleece top and bottom. Another combo I love is denim and leather. Wear a leather skirt, cotton tee and throw over a denim jacket. Bingo. Super rad. What are your favorite outfit combos?

Rose on Robe

Since the start of a new year, I've been setting small, measurable goals every week. While managing my own blog and social media content, I'm also helping James Jeans, a denim brand refocus their vision.

Having been my second week at my new job, I am already handling most of the marketing and promotions on the team. I enjoy carrying more responsibilities especially in areas that I'm good at! While I love learning new skills, I get way more excited about activities that I'm already familiar with and have plenty of ideas for. We have our seasonal lookbook shoots this week and next week. I'll be in charge of styling the shoot as well as the model's hair and makeup. This is a huge opportunity and one of the perks of working in a smaller brand. Not to mention, I also plan exclusive influencer events and represent public relations for the company.
Aside from work, I'm over-the-top excited to share this olive two-piece set and satin robe! Oh yes, you heard me right. I am now obsessed with wearing a robe outdoors! Just kidding, I haven't gotten that lazy yet. But I have been excited about this satin striped piece especially how it comes with a rose embroidery at the back. Going for a retro vibe with extra robe flow, I love wearing my red velvet booties to compliment the blue and olive green colors. I can't remember when this army-inspired green became so popular. I'm seeing this shade fade away this year and more so the blush and deeper reds are coming through. What colors do you see trending?
