With Memorial Day Weekend being the unofficial start of summer, I can’t help but want to dress the part. Road trips and outdoor hangouts with friends call for bright and lightweight essentials. This time of year makes me want to incorporate fun and quirky accessorizes like these two-toned sunnies and this pom pom straw clutch from Nordstrom Rack. I’ve been crushing hard on the raffia trend so I was super excited to see The Rack’s selection of this warm weather fabrication. I love how it adds texture to a simple outfit and gives off a mixed print feel paired with this Pacific print striped tee. I’m always reppin’ the west coast because you know what they say… west coast best coast. But, if you happen to reside on the other side of the country, Nordstrom Rack has a little something for you east coasters as well. Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
As a courtesy check, I usually ask Tyler what he thinks of my out-of-the-ordinary clothing. It’s more of a “here’s your chance to make fun of me” rather than “if you hate it, then I won’t wear it.” It’s not that I don’t appreciate his opinion, I just don’t really expect him to know what’s in. I gave him a platform to comment on this jacket and he said, “That’s cool. It’s like the part from Dumb and Dumber when they’re in Aspen.” The sad thing (or awesome?) was I knew exactly which part of the movie he was talking about. Although, it wasn’t a jacket – it was just fringe trimmed gloves. So from now on, this will always be known as my Dumb and Dumber jacket.

Last week I mentioned that I went a little crazy with the Summer sandals – more specifically, embellished sandals. Recently, I’ve strayed away from rhinestone and bling, but there’s something about giant gems on my shoes that just feels right. Shop some of my favorite blinged out sandals below!

Whenever we celebrate holidays with the Chinese side of the family we always go out for Chinese food. Except for Thanksgiving and Christmas because we cook at home, but instead of stuffing and green bean casserole, it’s rice and bok choy. I don’t mind it since I love Chinese food and it’s something to look forward to when I go back home. My grandma makes the arrangements because she’s a stickler about the restaurants she wants to support. It’s all politics. For the past few holidays, we had been avoiding a particular restaurant until her new go-to did us dirty (bad service, lack of communication). So for Mother’s Day we went back to her old favorite where they made up for their past digressions by giving each mom a red rose before sitting down for dinner. Now they’re back in grandma’s good graces and we can all breathe a little easier. Moral of the story, don’t mess with grandma.
