Casual in Burgundy (and New Hair Color!)


I've been wearing this casual burgundy dress paired with this jacket fairly often lately, whenever I want to be comfortable while still looking somewhat put together. What I love most about this dress is that it's a stretchy, cotton material...which means lots of room for eating!  I've definitely been doing a lot of eating recently, especially with Chinese New Year this past weekend.

I also decided to ring in the start of a new lunar year with a new hair color.  It's been awhile since I last changed my hair, so I figured it was time to make a change and avoid a style rut! 

Do you change your look often?

Preppy in Plaid



I wore this outfit to work this week and got several compliments on this vintage, plaid wool skirt - though I actually can't claim any credit for it.  The original owner of the skirt is my mom! As you know, I'm a big fan of borrowing from Mom's closet. Over the holidays, I had this skirt tailored to fit my size, and I've been wearing it nonstop since. 

When it comes to dressing for the office in the winter, I've found that layering is key.  Between the chilly San Francisco winds and frigid office A/C, my fail-proof work uniform usually consists of the following: a wool sweater layered over a silk dress shirt, blazer, pencil skirt, tights, and black pumps. At work, I tend to keep my accessories simple and on the conservative side.  Arm parties unfortunately don't work for me at the office, since I've found that a stack of bangles can often hinder typing (not to mention clank loudly and embarrassingly during meetings).  A single necklace or bracelet usually pulls together an outfit, while keeping it professional.         

What does your typical work outfit consist of?

Bengal x Bangle





Holiday party season is naturally one of my favorite times of the year. After all, it gives us even more reason to dress up...and dress up often!  

Although it's easy to stick to wearing either a little black dress or traditional holiday colors like red or green, I like mixing it up from time to time with unconventional colors and prints.  I can't get enough of this tiger print dress from Chicnova, which I foresee getting a lot of wear in both winter and summer.  To keep the attention on the bold print, I've kept my jewelry simple with a single gold pyramid bangle.

What I'm Wearing / Where to Shop:

H&M Gold Pyramid Bangle
H&M Platform Heels
F21 Envelope Clutch (another great pick here)

Are you also a fan of tiger prints?
