Jewel Tone Hues | Emerald Lace Top + Citrine Maxi Skirt

Hello everyone! There’s something about pairing rich emerald green and citrine yellow color that I couldn’t resist especially playing with textures like lace and chiffon. You may have seen this top here and I wanted to see what I could do with it for autumn. And this skirt doesn’t get much love so I couldn’t wait to pair the two together.

Workwear Wednesday | Gingham Ruffled-Sleeved Top + Cognac Leather Pencil Skirt

Hello everyone! I haven’t done a Workwear Wednesday in some time, here’s one for those who work in creative fields and can get away with open-toe shoes. This outfit is a great example of transitioning from summer to fall bringing in gingham print as well as stepping it up a knotch with the pencil skirt in the beautiful cognac color. The sleeves detail on this blouse just makes the outfit fun and interesting to wear.

Product Review | DESSANGE Paris Purifying Clay Mask + Shampoo

In light of Paris fashion week, I want to talk about the Parisian beauty line call DESSANGE Paris, which launched its product line in Target stores all over U.S. The creator, Jacques Dessange opened his first salon in Paris on the Champs-Elysées and was a world-renowned creator of pro techniques like “California Blonde” plus went on to become the first official hairdresser of the Cannes Film Festival. That’s very impressive indeed.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try out two of their products from the Purifying Clay line—the Purifying Clay Balancing Pre-Shampoo Mask and the Purifying Clay Balancing Shampoo at $11.99 and $9.99, respectively. See more of my review after the jump!

Autumn Break | Marigold Jumpsuit Dress + Olive Lace-Up Platform Heels

Hello everyone! I think I can finally see the light at the end of the renovation tunnel. Floors are done and my living room is slowly coming together! Now, I just need to finish unpacking and decorating before I can do a house tour. Can’t wait to show you what’s been happening at my place over the summer!

Also these days, it’s been feeling like autumn, so I’m embracing all the muted color tones like olive green dress in my last post and this marigold jumpsuit dress below. To be honest, when I first got it, I didn’t realize that it was a jumpsuit dress. I was happy to see that and it has pockets–double win! It’s also such a fun material and to add some edginess to it, I paired it with a leather jacket, studded belt and laced up platform heels.
