Starting Fresh

Tia Wong - Long Asian Hair

I did a poll on Instagram and asked if I should cut my hair short or keep it long.  At first it was split almost down the middle but by the end of the poll everyone said I should keep my hair long.  You can see how long my hair was in the before picture.  I typically get my hair cut to my mid back every year in December and by the next year it’s grown back to my butt.  Last year I let it grow a little longer than planned due to working so much and not being able to get to the salon.  I finally got an appointment with my girl Lisa, and she worked her magic.

When you see the after photo, it probably doesn’t look like I cut much off, but next to the before picture you can see how much we cut off.  My hair was actually still very healthy at the bottom, but I was just so tired of always sitting on my hair so it was time to start fresh for the New Year.  I love the end results of the color as well.  I wanted to go more brown versus going lighter, and I’m obsessed with my new hair!

Let’s all take a look at my crazy hair! I’ve been trying to get to the salon for months to try to tame this mess.  I’m finally going to the salon to cut and color my hair! I’m so excited for a fresh start. I typically always get my hair done in December so I go into the new year with a fresh-cut and color.  Due to my crazy work schedule I’ve been postponing it for way too long. I’ll be posting my before and after pictures on the blog soon!

Sadly this adorable dress is sold out, but I’ve linked a ton of similar options.  These 1. State cut out booties are also sold out but I’ve linked some cute alternative ones.  I love this simple burgundy ruffle sleeve shift dress. It’s so comfortable and easy to pair with booties for a casual look or dress it up with heels.

Happy Sunday everyone! Thankful I got to have this weekend off and the chance to go to church this morning.  I paired this adorable flare dress with this Who What Wear cheetah print jacket.  I was at Target the other day and this adorable jacket caught my eye.  I love the fun print and I love dressing up a simple black dress with this pop of color.

Who What Wear is always coming out with the cutest pieces at the most affordable prices.  The Who What Wear collection is trendy and the prints they find are seriously the best! The next time you’re in Target, take a look at their line, you’re guaranteed to find a cute piece that you fall in love with.

I’ve had a crazy week at work preparing for my New Years shoot and the next thing I knew it was Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving! I enjoyed my day with my family and even got a little Black Friday shopping in as well.  I wasn’t brave enough to hit the mall Friday, but I did hit up a ton of online deals.  I’m hoping that the crowds will be less today so I’m attempting to get in some shopping.

For today’s look, I wore this adorable pink layered ruffle sleeve pull over sweater. Los Angeles is still having a heat wave but it’s starting to cool down slowly. I paired this sweater with a skirt because I know later this afternoon it will be in the 80’s and hot! This adorable sweater is on sale right now so hurry while it’s still in stock!! It’s actually thick, so if you’re dealing with cool weather, this would be perfect! This sweater also looks adorable paired with jeans and boots for a casual everyday look.

I was at Target the other day for cleaning supplies and of course I walk past the clothing section and this bell sleeve blouse jumped out at me.  Target’s new line, A New Day, has some of the cutest pieces! This black bell sleeve blouse is from that new line, and I’m obsessed.  The blouse also comes in white and red, which I was able to grab in Red but sadly the white was sold out.  I love bell sleeve blouses because you can dress them up with a skirt for a church look like I did here.  You can also throw this bell sleeve blouse on with jeans for an everyday look.  A New Day, also has some adorable work slacks that you could pair with for a work outfit.  If you happen to go into Target, make sure to check out this new line, you’re bound to find some goodies!

This skirt is actually also from Target as well! The skirt is from the Who What Wear collection.  It’s sadly from last holiday season so it’s sold out, but I’ve linked a ton of similar gold metallic pleated skirts.  A lot of the modest outfits I wear for church are either from Utah boutiques or Target! You can find tons of modest pieces at Target and the best part is that it’s super affordable.

It’s finally starting to cool down in LA which means I can finally bring out all the cute jackets that I’ve been buying.  This Jessa Kae fringe jacket is seriously to die for. I’m obsessed with this pink taupe color and the fringe is just too perfect. The jacket itself is actually very warm, so it’s not just cute, but functional.  This fringe jacket is such a statement piece that I kept the rest of my outfit simple and toned down.

I’ve linked the exact same jacket above and also found a similar style jacket in a beautiful Fall color.  I wanted to find another color for those who may not want to go pink but love the style. The other jacket that I linked is from Nordstrom and I absolutely love the warm rust color. In either color, you’re bound to turn some heads and get tons of questions about where you got it from.

I’ve been a crazed with work and events the past couple of weeks so I’ve been super slacking on posting outfit details.  I snapped this outfit on my Instagram story and got so many questions about this adorable purple layered frill trim cardigan. Romwe sent over the adorable purple layered frill trim cardigan and I’ve been living in it lately.  It’s one size fits all, and although it’s a bit on the baggy side, I personally love it.  I love the over sized look and especially love the oversized ruffle sleeve detail.  I’ve paired this cardigan with a simple tee and jeans in the past and switched things up today with this adorable skirt and booties.  Since LA is just barely cooling down in temperature I can get away with skirts for at least a couple more weeks.  If you’re experiencing cool weather and snow, you could totally wear a long sleeve shirt under this adorable cardigan paired with jeans and over the knee boots for the perfect Winter look.  If you weren’t already sold on how cute and versatile the sweater is, let me seal the deal by saying that it’s on sale right now for under $25! Hurry while it’s still in stock.

Here’s to the weekend! I finally have a day off and using today to catch up on a ton of errands. Last weekend I had to work so today I’m playing catch up.  I have laundry to do, groceries to grab and returns at Nordstrom.  On errand days I love to dress super comfortable for all of the running around I’m about to do.

This ruffle sleeve t-shirt dress is a must have. It’s light weight and perfect when you’re in need of a cute, quick look.  The ruffle sleeves add the cutest touch to a simple t-shirt dress.  As you can see from my last post, t-shirt dresses are my new addiction.  T-shirt dresses are just so easy and comfortable and you don’t have to put any effort into planning into the look.  You can grab this adorable dress in a variety of colors at Nordstrom right now.  I paired my ruffle sleeve t-shirt dress with my favorite dusty rose Adidas NMD sneakers.  Sadly these sneakers are sold out, but I’ve linked some similar colored sneakers that are just as adorable.

Everyone is bundled up for Fall and I’m over here in a dress.  It’s been ridiculously hot in Los Angeles the past few weeks, with no sight of cool weather anytime soon.  Since we’re still having warm weather I plan on wearing dresses as long as I can.  This adorable pink cinched in lace up waist t-shirt dress is my new obsession.  I love t-shirt dresses because they are so easy to throw on.  Sometimes t-shirt dresses can be too casual so I love the cinched in lace up detail.  This adorable dress works great for a casual day paired with sneakers or heeled booties like I did for today’s look.

You’ll also see that I’m still rocking that Free People denim jacket! I seriously cannot take it off.  This detailed denim jacket literally goes with everything.  You can wear it like I did in my previous post or throw it around a simple dress for the perfect finishing touch.

Happy Sunday Everyone! For today’s Sunday best church outfit I went with this simple look.  The amazing thing about today’s outfit is that it’s on sale! The philosophy apparel knit sweater and pencil skirt are from Nordstrom but I couldn’t find them on their site.  Then I went over to Nordstrom Rack and realized they were not only fully in stock but on SALE! Who doesn’t love a good sale! The sweater and pencil skirt are both on sale for under $20 a piece!! These pieces also come in a variety of colors.

The Philosophy Apparel knit sweater is one of my new favorites! It’s light weight and perfect of Fall in Los Angeles.  I love the 3/4 sleeves and because it is light weight it’s amazing for layering.  You can also pair these knit sweaters with jeans for the perfect casual look.  These Philosophy Apparel pencil skirts are also amazing.  They fit perfectly around the waist and have enough stretch to fit your curves comfortably.
