August '14 • Pretty in Blue


F21 jean vest, Thrifted top, F21 skirt 

West coast, best coast baby! With only a couple weeks left in SoCal, my blogger/college friend Kelly from Creme de la Chic (link here) and I headed to the iconic Santa Monica Pier to catch up and shoot some photos. Ironically, I decided to use a blue wall as my background instead of the colorful carnival scenery, but I didn't mind since the rich blue hues in my outfit and the wall made the pictures more interesting. 

Although I just met Kelly back in April, I feel as if we've been friends for much longer and it's always a pleasure spending the day with her, talking about fashion, college, and our boyfriends. It's definitely a new experience having a friend who's also a blogger, but I admire her knowledge and dedication to blogging and often find myself inspired by the things she posts. 

Coming back to my outfit: Summer is winding down and I wanted to bust out this blue flare skirt from Forever 21 because the color just screams 'cool'. My goal to this outfit was to bring the city to the beach by pairing the vibrant blue skirt with a graphic tee and denim vest. The skirt and the wooden wedge heels contribute to the beachy aspect of this outfit, while the tee and vest tone it down to a city-vibe look. I love mixing and matching, and this combination of girly and edgy suits my personal style perfectly. 

For my last two weeks of summer, I want to read one more Murakami book and enjoy my time with the people I love. Let me know if you have one last goal for the remainder of your summer! I would love to know. 

Lots of Love,

Yujin
