Half moon bay

Hello my beautiful readers,

Over the weekend I went to half moon bay! I wanted just to lay down on the sand and relax! Unlike your typical beach these aren't meant for swimming, unless you're a surfer or a kid that doesn't mind the freezing cold ;) 

Keeping that in mind, you don't go wearing your bikinis and maxi dresses! I wanted to style something comfortable yet warm, layers are the key. Luckily the day wasn't too cold and there was no need for my sweater (which was gray and knitted). I was fine with a long sleeve striped tee, it's so soft I just want to sleep in it! To accessorize I wanted to keep it minimal with a chain necklace. Leather leggings are a MUST in my wardrobe, just like a good pair of jeans. Plus it acts like a second layer of skin keeping me very warm. Half moon bay is known for its gloomy, cold weather. That's why I wanted to add a really bright color, preferably hot pink. Yes, I occasionally coordinate scenery backgrounds with my wardrobe, but didn't the gray and pink go hand and hand ^.^ 

 To end our day my friends took us to this amazing place called moss beach distillery. It's a little bit hidden but its worth the adventure. You can eat on the deck where there is bonfire pit, a great view of the beach and even blankets to keep warm! (no reservation required) perfect way to end our relaxing day at the beach. 


With much love,

Cow palace regional bible convention 

Hello my beautiful readers,

Today's look will make you feel like a Chinese princess! I was instantly drawn to this dress because it was a
stylish way to represent my Chinese heritage. 

To keep the focus on the dress I wore black strappy heels. The Kate Spade purse went perfectly with my black heels and white dress. It's also a great way to get the Celine trapeze look at a fraction of the cost! For jewelry I went with my emerald green earrings from Old Navy. Old Navy is a great place to get jewelry because their sister store is Banana Republic. I have seen many similar styles of my Old Navy bracelets on Banana Repubilic's website! I purchased all of my jewelry during last years Black Friday, so I literally got all my earrings and necklaces for $3 a piece! I also added a gold cuff and a simple gold necklace. I really wanted the accessories to feel dainty and clean. 

For hair and makeup I was inspired by vintage Hollywood glamor. I'm not the best when it comes to hair but it turned alright. I curled all of my front bangs (fringe) to the left side of my head and also bobby pinned my hair on the opposite side behind my ear. I waned the emerald earring to pop! 

Creating the perfect elegant and modest attire for a bible convention! I was only visiting my boyfriend'a convention, so stay tunned to what I wear all three days for mine :)

With much love,

Hello my beautiful readers, 

Here's a quick iphone update! I've been loving the all white trend and wanted to create a corporate version. This look is professional enough for the office yet playful enough to go out with your girls after work!  The white slacks is a great staple, but what made them fun was the small diamond texture design on them. To add even more texture I got my 3d laser cut top! I don't own all white heels so I paired the look with my Zara colorblock ankle strap. To be honest you couldn't even see the black because the pants covered the straps. For a little pop of color I grabbed my orange rose necklace. 

With much love,

Hello my beautiful readers,

Here's a long overdue blogpost! I wanted to style something fun with bold colors! When I found this maxi dress I fell in love with all the colors from aqua blue, navy to bright yellow! To add even more fun colors, I added my pink statement necklace! I kept my eye makeup a simple gold pallet. I wanted gold to be my accent color to enhance my jewelry and clutch.

This is also one of my choices to wear to the regional convention next month! 

With much love,

Hello my beautiful readers!

I've partnered up with Modcloth to style the abiding beauty dress in black!

 My inspiration was the iconic Jackie O. I wanted to create a look that was elegant yet playful. Too look effortlessly chic.If your new to mixing print try mixing it in your accessories,  I did so with my big round cat-eyed sunnies and the darling coin pouch. To keep the look polished I stuck to the traditional rule of matching all the colors. The green trench coat was a perfect way to add a pop of color! Doesn't it just make you happy? This look would be great for a date or to even hop on a plane to go travel the world! You can always dress  up or down your little black dress ( That's why it's a closet essential ;) ).

Hello my beautiful readers, 

Today's look is inspired by cute matching sets! I have yet to buy one, so I created a similar look with pairing two items that are similar shades of orange! For a pop of color I infused my favorite color blue! The top is perfct for this heat were experiencing in San Francisco, it's lightwight and airy. The shorts have a great scallop bottom which adds Feminity vs a hard edge bottom! 

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

With love,

The one who surprised me with tickets :)


Hello my beautiful readers,

A few weeks ago I was surprised with tickets to see Lana Del Rey! I had so many ideas of what I could wear to represent a Lana persona and ended up going for a dark darling look. It's important to dress in layers! San Francisco has very cold nights, but inside concerts can get very hot! That's why I brought my leather motor jacket which was mainly wore around my waist for dancing and would later transition for warmth once I got out of the venue! A floral crown was an obvious must and some comfy booties. Remember, NEVER wear open toed shoes or new shoes  to a show because most likely you'll get stepped on! 

Anyone else Lana Del Rey fans?

With much love,

Khailey Escobedo
