Cheers.

Okay.
It's Friday.


Can we just celebrate that for a minute?

Alright.
The work week is all done and we have survived minor blips on the radar and I plan on fully enjoying this pre-Fourth of July weekend.


I'll be out and about with friends and family and eating delicious food so anticipate drool-worthiness on Instagram {follow me: Jessicamiyunlee}.

Weekend attire will be casual and crisp.

I'm a little late on this trend, as I needed it to grow on me, but lace shorts are slowly captivating my heart.

And I'm really enjoying pairing white on white.
So clean.

Alright friends, we made it through another successful and productive week!
Upon reading one of my favorite bloggers post (GaryPepperVintage), I also wanted to take some time this weekend to reflect on the big picture/plan for the next 6 months of my life.

With so much to choose from, I'm excited to see how the seeds we plant will grow.


Remember that friends!
Have an amazing weekend.

Stacked.

Lately, I've been eyeballing the trend of stacking a handful of bracelets and bangles to create an array of colors and shapes {long live the studs/spikes}.


I, of course, love it all.

How amazing is the eye bracelet?


Colors and braids

Leather and chambray

And the one who does it best?
Kate Lanphear.

This totally justifies me adamantly saying, "I need all of them!" when standing in line to purchase one too many.

You know what I'm talking about! 

I hope you had a lovely day!
I'm so excited to be back to my normal blogging regiment.

Gingham.

Hello friends!
It's been a while, but I have been busy organizing work so I can get back to my normal schedule of blogging and fashion finding for you. 

This weekend was divine and so relaxing that I had to pull out my favorite denim + white combo with a little gingham and gold to bring out some glam while we're at it.


{Shorts: VS, Shirt: Old Navy, Sunnies: Oliver Peoples}

Whether it be men or women, the crisp look of a white collared number with cerulean blue denim makes me smile.
You just can't go wrong with it.

But a little sparkle wouldn't hurt.

And my guilty pleasures of the season:

The cute simplicity of the gingham and bows delights me.




I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
The work week has started off with a "It's a Monday" kind of vibe, but I'm determined to turn it around and make this week amazing!


And don't you forget it!

Not Over Neon.

Hi friends!
How was your weekend?

The weather and activities this weekend were divine.
With a relaxing time with friends & family with great food and conversation, I couldn't have asked for more.  

Today, my little sister and I stepped out to Little Tokyo
The parking lot we were at today had the perfect graffiti art to complement the bright neon green of the skirt.

{Blouse: Gap, Skirt: ASOS, Sunnies: Oliver Peoples}
So it was a little warm...

I love those flowers and how they always grow in such abundance and seem to just spill over in all their glorious fluffiness.


{Necklace: F21}

Lace detail and a lucky ladybug that found its way to my skirt.
Okay, I'll admit it was cute for the first ten seconds, then as it started frantically running around I got a little scared. 

{Shoes: Paprika}

Summer is upon us now and definitely at work so it's off to start an amazing week.
I wish you all an amazing day.

My Perfection.

I'm having one of those weeks where work is making piles around my organized piles with even more things to do.

It's feeling a little bit like that.

So!
I must blog and find my happy place where I imagine my world of perfection:
A good cup of tea and blogging away... in bed. 
Wearing sweats.

Ah~
Okay now back to work.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

I leave with you with my delightful surprise that came in the mail:

I'm so excited!!
Good live music is so good for the soul.

Arizona.

Hello my friends~
Arizona was h-o-t.
But I had a marvelous time!

Here's a quick recap mainly of food because I feel that is the majority of what I did.
As we should!

My friend and I may have been the only ones left who did not watch the Avengers.
So we wanted to watch it in style at iPic where I felt like I was in Vegas.

Just... the movie theater lobby.
No big deal.

The very cool thing about Scottsdale where I spent most of my weekend was its lack of any familiar chain restaurants.
Which meant I got to eat at very cool one-of-a-kind establishments such as Cowboy Ciao where the food as anything short of amazing.

Truffle Mac & Cheese

And perhaps... one of the tastiest Italian sandwiches evar.

I end this trip with a photo of a blissful moment in my discovery of the world's most amazing gold aviators which will undoubtedly make its debut soon.

What a tease right?
Haha!

I just want to say this trip made me realize how grateful I am for my amazing friends.
My dad always told me, "If you have five friends in your life... Five true friends, you are so blessed."
And indeed I am. 


Thank you my love for a wonderful weekend in Scottsdale.
I am so proud of you.
I hope to see you soon.

Heat.

When the temperatures rise, so does my level of restlessness.


On that note, I am off to Phoenix this weekend for a record-breaking heat wave.

I am off to see a dear friend of mine and to spend some quality time doing... whatever is on the itinerary.

Sometimes it's nice to just let go of the reigns in terms of schedules, events, rides, and to be subject to the planning of someone you trust- who also has impeccable taste.

 Packing was a lot simpler and definitely bipolar compared to the chilly weather in San Fran, but you know what that means...
More room in the suitcase for shoes.

So we have very simple simple outfits that only need:
Denim shorts

No nonsense tank tops
How cool is Kate Lanphear gah!

And comfortable sandals that go with everything.

Honestly, let's not make this more complicated than it needs to be.
I wish I could say the weather doesn't effect me so much, but let's keep it real.
I get fussy with heat.

With that said, I'll be off for the next couple days but will be avidly updating via Instagram (follow me: Jessicamiyunlee) and will come back with a compilation of photos.


I hope you all enjoy this warm weekend and do something amazing!
