The morning is always overcast. On better days, the sun will eventually peek out behind the clouds, other days will remain cold and gloomy. That is what you get living on the coast right next to the Pacific Ocean. It seems to me that the weather is transitioning from summer to fall and I am all for it! I love nothing more than to layer up in cozy knits and patterned tights!

I am having one of those days where I don't want the world to see my face... so instead of an outfit post, I am sharing with you this fancy unicorn lamp I recently purchased! The unicorn lamp base is an upcycled vintage piece and the shade is handmade. I have been so excited about it since the day I received it! I am really drawn to the seafoam color and touches of gold! Although I could have bought a pair of Jeffrey Campbell with the amount I spent on this lamp, I think it's totally worth it! Do you agree? :)

I have a love hate relationship with Santa Cruz. I hate how there is nothing going on here, opportunity wise. I can't wait til I move back up to the bay so I can get back into styling. I do, however, love all the beautiful and interesting spots. This is just one of the many old abandoned bridges and it was a perfect day for a flowy maxi. Seems like summer is just starting over here...

There are three things in life that are close to my heart... my other half, my cats, and my clothes. :) I have two kitty cats, the little one below is the ultimate mama's boy.

Hello! It has been awhile! I cannot believe how long it is taking me to decorate my new apartment! I suppose I am quite picky when it comes to home decor and I am eager to find exactly what I want, thus the long duration is necessary. Once it is all finished, I cannot wait to show all of you the result!

Back to my outfit here... I am wearing the 2 Step dress by Many Belles Down. Many Belles Down is a recent brand from Oakland found by Jane, who along side with her husband Jason also own Sway which is the store I manager at and create window displays for. If you live in the Bay Area, you should go check out a Sway near you! We have 6 stores! And if you are nowhere near, don't worry, we have an online shop as well! Many Belles Down is right up my alley... mixing vintage with modern. I have a few Many Belles Down dresses and this is definitely one of my favorites! I love the peach and yellow flowers on a cream background, it is vintage yet fresh! If only they make bedding with this pattern, I would buy it in an instance! To compliment the dress, I am carrying a bright yellow handbag I bought online from Hong Kong. Things like these make me so thankful for growing up in HK and knowing Chinese. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to get all these amazing clothes, shoes, and bags from there for such a great deal! I haven't been back in 3 years... I need to go soon, along with some empty suitcases. :)

Decorating my new place is much more time consuming than expected, and it doesn't help when things I bought online are taking ridiculously long to arrive! I can't wait til everything is done! Here are some interior design/home decor I adore (I have been staring at that orange room for days!)...
