Beauty.

This year has gone by in a blur as it's already half gone!

And what I can say I've learned in these past six months thus far, is to truly stay on a path that appreciates all the beauty that life offers us.

Here are my 5 for this week:

Honestly, I take back any badmouthing I ever did about flowers 
(especially during that Valentine's Day week where I still ended up with a dozen red roses)
Flowers are beautiful.
All of them.
But peonies... my goodness how they make me smile!

My friends would roll their eyes at this but I swear, if I had the time to spend with an adorable Welsh Corgie, I'd snatch one up right now.
My imaginary pet is named Georgie.
And he loves me very much.

Neon statement nails.
Because it's one of those things where it's just so giggly fun to be a girl.
No matter how old you are!

The simple magic that string lights bring to a night stroll.
The romantic inside me is in there somewhere.

The return of the denim vest.
Such a simple piece that I adore.


I'm excited for what the second half of the year holds!

Have a beautiful Thursday friends!

NorCal.

Happy Memorial Day friends!

I've come back from my quick trip up north and have pictures to share.

We stayed at Larkspur Hotel in Union Square in walking distance from all the eating and shopping we undoubtedly accomplished.

Our hotel lobby where we ended up spending a good portion of our late night.

A random cat with tulle and... a leash.
No big deal.

{Tank: F21, Sunnies: Chanel}
Very hungry @ La Boulange on Sutter
Loving neon!

My favorite almond croissants which always makes me think of Annabelle

Macarons

French Onion soup sans cheese.
We dealt with it.

Open face smoked turkey sandwich


Then off to the city we go!

The weather was beautiful and the afore mentioned pre-planned outfit was perfect.



And my most tourist-y picture of the weekend

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Summer is officially here in LA and I am not complaining.
Let's have a great (short) week!

Weekend.

Hello friends!
Happy Friday and where are you off to?

With Memorial Weekend already here (can you believe it's June??), I have packed up my bags and am headed up north for a cool weekend in San Francisco with my little sister who I can't seem to get enough of.


My friends' reactions: "Again??"
YES!

There's not an ounce of me that feels I've thoroughly scoured San Francisco just yet. 
There's just too many hidden nooks in the city that delight me.
Plus, the drive is therapeutic. 
[If I travel with the right people]

I am anticipating very cold weather though but that is alright with me as I'm prepared to do my favorite out-of-town comfort clothes:
A sturdy pair of black combat boots I can stomp around Union Square in

A black leather jacket to go with just about everything.
And to keep me warm as we walk.

A burst of neon to combat the persistent fog and gloom.

And of course, my camera.

I anticipate amazing food.
A breath of fresh air.
And a renewed spirit for an even more intense summer to begin upon my arrival.

I hope you all have a safe, enjoyable and well-deserved long weekend.
I will update via Instagram (Jessicamiyunlee) and Facebook as well!

Take some time off and relax!
Everything is going to be amazing.

Colors.

Once in a while, a magazine spread catches my eye and I have to say, Mario Testino does a brilliant job with British Vogue for "High Plains Drifter"







 My favorite!


My next favorite~!


This looks so fun!

Oh Oscar.

For Oscar de la Renta's Resort 2013 collection, I saw bits and pieces of Fall 2011 inspiration.
But overall, the colors, prints and patterns made me smile with its colors. 

Okay. 
How amazing is the green skirt and white leafy blouse?
And the oversized collared shirt with the lace skirt is genius.

Trending in blue gingham.
I love the sweet jacket in look #2.

I'd wear these to a picnic.

Fourth of July?
I adore #3 & 4

Spring, summer
It's so very appropriate and so pretty

Precious metals
I see a bit of Michael Kors & Ralph Lauren

And my favorite:
OscarPRGirl let us know this spunky look is available for anyone who loves it enough to purchase it here on the Fancy. 
{It's only $2,490.00}

So far, with Chanel and Oscar de la Renta underway with Resort collections, it has already been a fun peek into what we'll be seeing trending in the very near future.

Have a great day friends!

On my mind.

What I love about fashion, is how there are countless styles of shoes, bags, accessories and apparel that come and go with the seasons.

But there's always those select few that define a great year of style.
And it's these particulars that drive me crazy (in a good way) and make me truly appreciate the creativity and the minds of designers all over the world who work hard to create something new and special for us to appreciate and love.

The mini Celine



The Alexander McQueen


Just two on my list of must-have's.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
The weather outside is perfect.

Chanel.

Karl's much anticipated resort show at Versailles threw me off at first as I first took a look at the collection.

But the more time I spent with it, I began to see the timeless youthful genius of Mr. Lagerfeld. 
Truly... a master at his craft.
Respect and then some.

Here are some of my favorite looks:
The pants.
I'd wear all 4.

Gold.
I love the dresses.
And those sneakers are growing on me...

Oh hello!
I would like all four for a tea party.
The pink jacket... I NEED.

Oh my.
I LOVE.

And a resort collection isn't complete without cropped tops and bathing suits

I thought the pastel hair was very fitting and fun.

Till next time...
We eagerly await!
