Festive Strawberries

June 27, 2012 § 42 Comments

A nautical themed BBQ for 4th of July is on the weekend agenda.  So I’ve been researching for inspirations this week.  This is a super easy recipe that is both festive to look at and delicious to eat.

For nautical flags:

I bought a sheet of map wrapping paper from Paper-Source. Simply cut it into strips of your desired length and width.  Glue onto bamboo skewers.

For strawberries:

Melt white chocolate.  Dip about half of a strawberry into the white chocolate.  Immediately dip the tip of the strawberry into blue sanding sugar.

Nostalgia

June 25, 2012 § 47 Comments

I grew up in Taipei and went to school there up until the 3rd grade.  Students there had to wear uniforms to school, regardless of public or private school systems.  I ordered this top through Shopbop, mostly excited for the color-blocking trims.  But when I received it in the mail, it immediately reminded me of my uniform in elementary school.  Our color scheme was blue, navy blue, and black.  And all of the sudden I was nostalgic for the motherland.

Wearing: Equipment blouse, F21 leather shorts, Stuart Weitzman heels, Juicy Couture sunnies, Proenza Schouler clutch.

Pistachio

Wearing: Equipment “Pistachio” blouse, 7 For All Mankind denim shorts, Zara heels, Celine Bag, Asos rings, Maison Boinet belt, Michael Kors watch.

Blouses are my go-to these days.  I love that I can wear them with black skinnies for work, add on some statement jewelries for a night out, or pair them with some shorts during weekends.  This one from Equipment is on frequent rotation right now.  It has a nice summer-y feel to it and the abstract ikat pattern is what made me fell in love.

I hope you’re having a great week so far.  It’s officially summer!

W San Diego

Wearing: J. Crew knit sweater, 7 For All Mankind denim shorts, Mulberry messenger bag, Cole Haan oxfords, Michael Kors watch, Gorjana rings, Bing Bang rings.

This past weekend I was in San Diego along with 6 other girlfriends to celebrate a dear friend’s birthday.  We stayed at the W which is located in downtown SD, a few blocks from Gaslamp.  My friends and I are all very busy with work and whatnot that it is often hard to get the whole group together.  But this makes the times that we do have together so much more special and treasured.  This weekend was filled with great food (we ate at Old Venice, Extraordinary Desserts, Gaijin Noodle, The Mission), great company, and lots of laughs.  Hope you all had a nice weekend, too!
