Happy Lunar New Year and happy Friday! I wish everyone a wonderful new year filled with luck, happiness, good health, and prosperity.
I haven’t done an outfit post in forever, so today, I am sharing a casual outfit that I wore to work. I wore leggings and an over-sized sweater, which is a great simple outfit for transitioning into spring. Southern California is already in 70-77° weather, but if you live in a cooler climate, I would throw on a jacket or scarf to stay extra warm. This beige sweater has diamond patterns in front with hints of white and pink which makes the look a bit more feminine. For shoes, I wore patent leather loafers with tassel detail for a dressy look.

At work last week, we had our company’s Christmas Party, and I wore my Rilakkuma Christmas sweater. We had a “Wear your Best Festive Wear” competition in which I was close to winning.
I bought this sweater two years ago from Japan LA. It’s a bit oversized because I bought it in the size medium. It’s very comfortable and different from normal Christmas sweaters.
I wore it with my grey mini skirt from Uniqlo, and beige booties from Sole Society. To really get into the spirit of the holidays, I found this wine color beret with reindeer ears on Amazon. It’s a kid size beret, but it fits perfectly.
Now that November is over, I’m a little upset that these fall leaves will have to come down. I love the simplicity of this, and how it made a plain white wall look so festive for Thanksgiving. Of course, I had to take a photo with it because soon we will be putting up the Christmas decorations around the office.

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”
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.
Always dress well, but keep it simple.
For work, I decided to go back to basic – black and grey. I’ve been having a hard time finding work clothes to wear because it’s warm outside and cold inside the office. On this particular day, it was cloudy and gloomy in Southern California (72°F or 22°C), so I wore a collar crop top (not really a crop top on me), and high-waisted dress pants. Because I’m wearing all black and grey, I used my pink Samantha Vega bag for pop of color.

For this work outfit, I wore my blue strip collar one-piece top from Yesstyle. I bought it for days when I’m feeling lazy, or days where I have no idea what to wear to work. My co-workers actually thought it was a two-piece blouse. The fabric material is light-weight, and you wouldn’t have to worry much about layering. It is long-sleeve, which is perfect for the chilly office environment but still light enough to wear outdoors. The back of the shirt is slightly longer than the front, and there is a zipper. I like to wear this with the sleeves rolled-up for a more casual look, black pants, and heels/flats.

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.
