OOTD’s 

Hey dolls, 

Today’s post is going to be a couple outfits I’ve tried out this past week. Hope you guys like it! (I will be uploading pics of me in them shortly) 

OOTD number 1 :

  

This is the whole outfit, with the blazer. I was trying to go for a Shophisticated yet modern look. I think the boots make this look more refined along with the white-short rompers. If you please, you can add a layer of sheer stockings depending on the weather. 

   
 

  • Boots from GUESS ( there called cilantros)
  •   
  • White rompers from FOREVER 21  
  • Gold necklace from FOREVER 21 
  • Glasses ( forgot) 
  • Black belt to add a waist shape.
  • Blazer from FOREVER 21 

OOTD number 2: 

  

The second ootd is more for weekend mall trips or running errands. I think the pink body suit adds a bit of sweetness to the look. I was trying to go for a edgy look. Yes believe it or not the pink body suit is my ballet leatard. 

  
These are my all time fav boy friend jeans! If you guys are looking for the best pair that actually look like your bf’s jeans CHECK OUT my current fav store ZARA. I got these from the grove location. 

  

The holes are so cute 💕

January Favs!

As January comes to an end, here are a couple of my favorites from this weird and hectic (for me, anyway) month!

Food: 

My first try of Paradise Bowls acai in Manhattan Beach! Really refreshing and pseudo-healthy but quite $$. Will def try the other flavors in the future.

Jams: 

Finals week = chillaxing music to study to, aka John Mayer. I listened to probably all his albums which had me reminiscing, but Room for Squares definitely caught my attention. Specifically,

No Such Thing – John Mayer

Why Georgia – John Mayer

83 – John Mayer

Neon – John Mayer

Style:

Copped these new periwinkle blue Converse in like November but decided to finally try them out for the new semester. A nice dash of spring during these chilly winter months.

Places:

I went by the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles for the Japanese new year. It’s such an informative and interesting; it digs deep into the Japanese internment camps on the West coast and the dark side of American history. It also has some super cool Japanese art!

 A total must if you’re in the area.

Reads:

See How They Run, the sequel of All Fall Down by Ally Carter came out recently! It’s about a teenage girl named Grace who lives in an American embassy in a small coastal European country filled with scandalous secrets, which is also the place where her mother was targeted and killed. I read some of it at the bookstore but forgot my money but I’m definitely going back to buy it! It was so gripping and had incredible imagery; I can’t wait to finish it.

Miscellaneous:

We got new moon jellies at the aquarium and they look absolutely incredible when the lights are off that I had to share!! Visit your local aquarium if you’re bored one weekend.

Another thing I’ve started in January was a social media cleanse. I deleted my Instagram and Twitter apps from my phone last week. It’s been kind of lonely and you have a crazy amount of time to think, but I think it has helped me focus on me more than what some people did over the weekend. I encourage you all to test it out even for a day.

Hope you enjoyed all my favorites for January and try them out in February!

Always,
Firda

Top : Nordstrom
Skirt: Marshalls
Sunglasses: Nordstrom
Bindis: Indian Store
Flower Clips : not sure

Bindi Tip : Usually Bindis are worn between the eyebrows on the forehead. However, I like wearing one just below the “wing” of my liquid eyeliner.

Look 2: Spring-time Chic & Casual
This look is very crisp yet casual. It is perfect for a lunch date or afternoon stroll in the garden . I love how it looks so put-together when its on , even though its utterly simple. I think it’s something about white jeans that can make the simplest of outfits look so chic. Also , I love the bell sleeves of this top ( this used to be a huge 70s trend) . The top paired with the jeans is a perfect mix of vintage and modern style coherently complementing each other in an outfit. The maroon hat adds a splash of color to the outfit.

Top: TJ-Maxx (thats surprising? sometimes department stores can have the cutest of things… )
Jeans: Hollister
Hat: Charlotte Russe

Look 3: Day to Night Sophistication
This look is perfect for someone who needs there outfit to work for both the day and night. It will look stunning at the mall during the day and even more gorgeous at dinner in a restaurant during the evening. It’s that quintessential outfit that everyone needs when they’re busy. I particularly love the fun print of this kimono. It matches perfectly with the lacy white top. I love how classy it looks and the dark wash jeans add a great contrast. If the outift is worn during the day, you can wear strappy sandals with it and the cute black peeptoe heels during the might. Did I mention that these heels have a cutout in the heel? Foot cleavage is trendy. Continue reading
