Keeping it light in my light pink dress

Hi Lovely!

Today’s outfit features this adorable dress from OASAP. I bought it a few years ago and love the style. It features a super-cute collar, adorable details around the bottom, and cute little three-quarter length sleeves. So many lovable details!! The fabric provides a lot of stretch which means it’s still comfy even after a big meal. I think we can all agree that’s a plus!

I’ve recently been trying to wear more of my dresses. I go through phases as to which ones are my favorites and then I just wear the same thing over and over again. I need to break that habit!! All of my dresses deserve love. So, I’ve been trying to be more conscious about which dresses haven’t been worn in a while and then I wear those. I lay them out the night before so I just have to grab the dress without having to think about it too much. So far it’s worked pretty well!!

Next I want to figure out new ways to style the dresses I have. I’ve seen people layering crop tops on top of dresses and that tends to look pretty cute. I think I just need to spend more time on testing out styles and seeing what I like.

Do you ever have this dilemma? How have you mixed up your wardrobe to make new looks?

Getting dolled up for a visit from friends!

Hi Lovely!

This weekend my friends Laura, Nicole, and Jenna visited from Portland! It was wonderful to see them! Laura and I met on Instagram, one of my main methods for meeting people, and I met Nicole and Jenna through Laura. I knew that they’d be wearing Lolita so I decided to wear my adorable carnival-themed Bonne Chance dress. It’s one of my favorite dresses because the details are amazing, the fit is perfect, and it makes me feel super-cute! I thought it would compliment their looks nicely.

I had a really great time with the ladies. We met in Tukwila to grab lunch, do a little shopping, and hit up Round 1. I don’t get much lady time so it was really fun to just hang out and shop. At Round 1 we took purikura photos and played a few games. I love the games at Round 1!! They have Dance Dance Revolution, the Tsum Tsum game, and a whole smorgasbord of others. We had such a great time.

I loved getting dolled up to meet with these awesome ladies. It was a lovely way to spend a weekend.

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

My Favorite Work Look: Layering

Hi Lovely!

I had a crazy busy weekend!!! My wonderful friend, Mikaela, came up from Portland and we spent all day Saturday adventuring around and then did a little bit more sightseeing (by sightseeing I mean shopping) on Sunday. It was so much fun!! It was our first meeting in person and I think it went really well!

Now it’s back to work and I’m rocking my go-to look for the office: a layered look. I love pairing long sleeve shirts under dresses. It makes me feel cute and professional. It’s my favorite office look.

Showcasing my love for Hello Kitty!!

Hi Lovely!

When I was younger, my favorite store was Sanrio. It was located at the mall across town so I didn’t get to go very often. But when I did, oh goodness, did I love it. I’d save up my money so I could go to Sanrio and buy pens, pencils, and notebooks. I especially loved their surprise bags. I can’t remember how much they were but I adored the thrill of picking a bag to see what was included. It makes sense that I now love blind boxes and subscription boxes.

Recently, I rediscovered my love for Hello Kitty and the Sanrio bunch. I decided to attend the Hello Kitty Friendship Festival and that really reignited the love I have for the cute characters. Now, a few years after that adorable event, I’ve gotten back into Sanrio and decided that I wanted to showcase my love.

I recently saw a friend on Instagram wearing a Hello Kitty dress and knew immediately that I wanted to add it to my wardrobe. I added it to my Christmas wish list and hoped that maybe someone would get it for me. As you may guess, someone did. My amazing Dad surprised me with the dress on Christmas day. As soon as I opened that box and tore the tissue paper, I fell in love with the dress.

It has an adorable collar, sweet little lace details, and it even has pockets! WHAAAT? I know. Any dress with pockets = best thing ever.
