Petite Style Muse: Mindy Kaling

Height: 163cm/5’3 The latest season of The Mindy Project recently started so this month’s petite style muse is Mindy Kaling! (Side note: I was kind of disappointed with the first episode but I’m hoping it’ll get better) Mindy’s style is so different from mine. It’s bold, bright, and girly, but I love it because she pulls it off so well. At first I thought it …

Vlog: 5 Days in New York

My 5 days in New York vlog is finally here! Better late than never, right? I asked the video master of the family to fine tune it, so Kirill added in a bunch of cool effects 🙂 I won’t make excuses about being late with this.

How To Spend A Day In Portland

Portland! The city of roses, trees, and hipsters. Kirill and I went last month for our anniversary (after a quick stop at Cannon Beach). It’s got an interesting vibe and it’s cute.

OUTFIT This painting print maxi dress I wore to Cannon Beach (here’s the post in case you missed it). I had a feeling the dress would be perfect for the beach and I was right. I really love …

Blue Monochrome: Bomber Jacket & Printed Slip Dress

Monochrome dressing is fun. Black and/or white is what usually comes to mind but today I tried a blue monochrome look with a bomber jacket & printed slip dress. It’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a while now. Blue is my happy colour. It reminds me of the ocean, clear skies, summer. Especially baby blue. Red makes me feel confident, but blue makes me …

Sporty Chic: Mint Crop Top & Chiffon Joggers

I don’t love the term sporty chic, but I don’t know how else to describe today’s look. A mint crop top & chiffon joggers paired with my biggest heels. That’s right, chiffon joggers. Pants that used to be possibly the most unfashionable thing you could wear and were associated with hobos and lame dads are now considered stylish. And they’re being made in floaty, feminine …
