Midi-Dressing

Cozy, but Professional

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I abhor professional dress. I have nightmares of pressed dress slacks and boring button downs that I wore for all my internships. I’ve never felt like me when I have to get all dressed up. I just want to wear jeans! But it’s the most wonderful thing now when I find a beautiful piece that truly represents me, like this dress. I picked it out from Suki + Solaine. I just loved the silhouette and imagined it to be comfortable, yet versatile enough to wear with sneakers or dressed up with heels. Or with gladiator sandals!  Read More »

It worked out well since I’ve had back to back work travel and what I really needed was a weekend of no plans. Read More »

Hawaiian Roots

Tapped into my Hawaiian roots with this top! My grandmother is Hawaiian/Filipino and growing up, my great Uncle Julian would visit Michigan with tropical, floral off-the-shoulder dresses and tops for us! Back then, I lived in my oversized Adidas tees and other tomboy gear, but I was INTO this shit. And still am! Read More »
