Work Outfit: Beige Sweater & Booties

The weather has been cooling down in southern California, so it’s a good time to start bringing out my sweaters. Lately, the weather has been 68-78° Fahrenheit or 20-25° Celcius. I know, that’s not that cold. but growing up in an area where winter doesn’t really exist, I get cold easily.

I wore this casual outfit to work as part of our “business casual” dress-code. My company has been rather lenient on our dress-code, especially when the bosses are out of town. On this day, I wore a beige sweater, light-blue jeans, and beige booties. Continue reading “Work Outfit: Beige Sweater & Booties”

Casual Autumn Outfit for Work

It’s been a while since I did an outfit post. I noticed, I’ve been writing a lot about my food and travel, and neglecting this category of my blog. My Monday thru Friday consists of business casual outfits, and since autumn has arrived (kinda), I’m slowly transition into my fall outfits. Lately, the company I work for hasn’t been strict on our business casual dress code – I don’t even know what our dress code is anymore with all the different outfits I see in the office haha. This outfit is very neutral consisting of beige, white, and navy.

Recently, I bought a taupe ankle boot from Sole Society. I’ve never bought shoes from Sole Society before, and I decided to take the chance and order it since reviews said sizes run small. I wear size 4.5 to 5, and Sole Society’s River Ankle Boot in size 5 was a perfect fit. I get up often at work, and I walk around the corporate building during break. These boots were comfortable, and my feet did not hurt at all.

My next two purchase was from Liz Lisa’s official eBay store. It’s difficult making purchases from Japan because most Japanese clothing brands do not ship internationally, so you have to use a shopping service. Now, with websites such as Tokyo Otaku Mode, and their Liz Lisa Official eBay store, I am able to purchase these items without paying the extra fees on top of shipping. I bought their suede jacket in beige, and a navy floral skirt. Both of these pieces are perfect for my casual office environment.

This light-weight suede jacket comes in one size, and the jacket length is not too long, which is perfect for my short height. The sleeve length is slightly long on me, but not too big of a deal.

Next, is Liz Lisa floral skirt. The dark navy color is great for a casual office environment, or to wear out to places. Also, this skirt has pockets – 2 in front, and 2 in back!

The white top I’m wearing is also from Liz Liza.

Sunday Casual Ootd

Happy Sunday! Today, it is about 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) in the Greater Los Angeles area. I don’t usually like to go out much because summertime in California is way too hot for me. Usually I spend my weekends reading, cooking, watching movies, and being lazy all day. This weekend, I actually went out instead of being a hermit crab. I went to 626 Night Market on Saturday, and today I went to grab lunch with my sister and her boyfriend. For my outfit, I decided to wear legging pants (from Uniqlo – size xs altered) since I already got a bad tan line from wearing shorts the previous day, a grey lace camisole with a white crochet cardigan, and brown slip-on shoes (Michael Kors – size 5).

For Lunch, we went to Wood Ranch BBQ. I ordered their signature Tri Tip BBQ (10 oz) with a side of sweet potato fries.
After we decided to walk off all the food we ate at Barnes & Noble. I wanted to buy some books but I realized I still have 3 books that I’ve recently purchased. Fiction and Literature are my favorite genre.
Of course, I can’t forget about the manga section. I was tempted to buy Haikyuu! and Naruto manga. Before heading home, we stopped by 7 Leaves for some Thai Tea.img_0242

When Crop Tops Aren’t So Cropped on Petites 

Some crop tops are perfect for petites. I started noticing that crop top will show less than an inch of my lower stomach, or the length will look like a normal shirt/blouse. Most blouses that I buy are too long in length and I would have to tuck my shirt in. Crop tops are perfect for a clean look without worrying about the top being too boxy, and making you look smaller than you already are. In today’s post, I wore this tie-front top from Romwe.  The length ends right at my waist. The material is light and slightly sheer so you would have to wear a camisole underneath. I wore this top with black ripped jeans from Uniqlo, and beige Steve Madden slip-on shoes.

Shirt Material: Chiffon

Shirt Length: 52 cm or 21 inches

Shirt Bust: 102 cm or 40 inches

Shirt Sleeve length: 26 cm or 10 inches

Top: Romwe | Bottom: Uniqlo ripped jeans – size 23 inch (leg length altered) | Shoes: Steve Madden size 5
