Summer wants, part one!

Clockwise from left - Urban Outfitters, Blue and White lattice dress, Funktional Bosworth dress, Sam Edelman Trina, Free People floral cutoffs, Karen Walker Helter Skelter

A list of the things that I keep drooling over. :) I seem to be on another dress kick, as you can see from the three dresses above...It's quite odd, because I wasn't obsessed with dresses when I was younger. Maybe I'm making up for it now? Other than that, I am still loving quirky prints and floral shorts. I especially love the Pixie Market dress in the middle; the details are so pretty!

Of course, one cannot forget the importance of sunglasses on bright days...these Karen Walker ones are exclusive to her mobile Candy Bar pop-up stand and I covet them dearly.

fun times!

Some fun pictures from an exciting (and overdue!) outing with friends. :) No outfit pictures because...1. I was lazy, and 2. I wasn't wearing anything of interest ;) But there's always next time, right?

Pictures from top to bottom:
1. A Brandy & Melville sign that keeps making me laugh...YOLO.
2. E's pretty arm candy!
3. My new ring. :)
4. I look so focused. Or really ~angelic~. Right..
5. Jasmine flowers at Urth!
6. Honey Vanilla Lattes. Please get it, it is SO GOOD.
7. Fruit tart...drool. Half of our dessert binge ;)
8. Instax photos. <3

one of those days.

Have you ever had one of those days where you look through your closet and find nothing to wear? It's not that I don't have enough pieces of's quite the opposite. I'm trying to figure out what to wear for my last final days at school and can't come up with anything! It might have to do with the fact that I want to wear my new neon yellow kids' size Vans...but really. You would think that having a closet full of clothing would yield at least one cool outfit. Maybe I'm not trying hard enough!

Do you like the instax photos? They're scans of the few shots I've taken with my instax camera so far, and I love them. :)

cucumber water.

(Top - thrifted, shorts - Urban Outfitters, shoes - Target, leather bracelet - gift from friend)

This top reminds me of the Greek myth of Clytie! Clytie was a water nymph that fell in love with the god of the sun, Helios, and eventually died from her unrequited love. The myth says that the other gods and goddesses of Olympus took pity on her and turned her into a turnsole (or sunflower, in modern versions).

Today was actually my photographer friend's (as in, the one that took these photos for me) birthday! We went out to celebrate with lunch. Yum. Afterwards, she graciously helped me take these silly pictures. Thank you, H, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY. :D

The magazine window display is quite cool, don't you think? The fashion department at my school puts together these window displays, and I especially liked this one. They're like tiles on a wall!

The last day of classes was today and I will be free for about four months after next Thursday. What will I do with myself? I need ideas! I also think it's bittersweet that it's ending, for this school has been a part of my life for the past two years. There will always be good things to look forward to, right? :)

Three Floor High Summer 2012

These dresses! The colours! The detail! I am in love. I had to choose only a few of my favourites (I just love all of their new beautiful!), but you can check out the rest here :)

hot summer.

(Dress (worn inside) - Cotton On, chiffon dress - Cameo, boots - Steve Madden, watch - La Mer)

Technically it's not summer yet, but it's getting to feel like it. Hot temperatures mean everyone's bringing out their sandals and shorts, and walking around in tank-tops! Case in point: I saw lots and lots of people wearing said outfit at school today. One of those rare moments where I decided to lug around my heavy bag (ugh) and DSLR. My back doesn't thank me, but at least I have pretty photos to show you?

Do you remember seeing this dress not too long ago? ;) I made it my mission to wear all my new things because the weather has been pretty warm. I think I succeeded...unless I am forgetting some odd purchase hidden somewhere in my drawer. I've also been on a techie binge, so I have a new Fujifilm Instax and a smartphone to play with. Yay me.

Hot temperatures mean wanting to just throw on a dress and calling it a day! I hope I don't have too many of those lazy moments this summer. Hope you're enjoying yours? :)

p.s. This post was also named after a certain f(x) song...that will most likely be on rotation again this summer. Not to mention that I will probably dance along at the SM Town concert in two weeks. Can I get a 'heck yeah'?

Some favorite things.

Dresses - Cameo
Sweater - GAP
Shorts - Target

Some things that I acquired in the past month or so. I am just a tiny bit addicted to Cameo's pieces. Let's hope it doesn't escalate into a full-blown obsession, or my wallet is in for some trouble! I haven't worn the dresses out yet...oops. I blame the weird weather here. It's supposed to be perfect Spring-y weather next week, so I hope to let them see the light of day! :)

I think the sweater and shorts are my favourite outfit right now. It's so easy to throw on and really comfortable, too. I think I've worn this combination at least three times in the past two weeks. The sweater I finally tracked down and bought when I found it at went on sale in February? January? but I didn't get it and couldn't find it anywhere! So, when I found it again...immediate purchase. I REGRET NOTHING.

SO much stuff has been happening the past few weeks! Still trying to work on assignments (oh, procrastination, why do you do this to me?!) and getting stuff together for university in September. UCLA, here I come! ;)

May the 4th be with you! Go enjoy your day :)
