Tanaka Farms

School has kept me busy but I am glad to be going out on adventures with the beef (bee-eff, as in boyfriend)! We have been working on doing matching #ootds. Recently, we were not only able to practice doing fashion shoots, but we also visited a popular pumpkin patch in Irvine, Tanaka Farms!

Surprisingly, SoCal has been cooler lately so I have started changing my wardrobe to warmer and thicker sweater dresses. Aleck has often worn his work shirts, though we have been frequenting Ross for new shirts and men's outerwear. For this shoot, we coordinated whatever clothing we had in our closets.

Cool weather means I get to wear my hair down for extra warmth, and this is exactly what I did for this cowl neck sweater dress.

While we had simple pieces (no layering funsies just yet), sharing an accent color for our accessories brought both looks together. We are doing for coordinated looks for Monch and Cronch, as inspired by Bon and Pon!

Aleck's glasses are not only function but also form. (Well, just like his hair!) And they go so well with this shark tie! Admittedly, I was a little serious about matching the beige on these little guys. 

I should have chosen better footwear for our time at Tanaka Farms, but it is always a fun adventure with this one! Check out our pumpkin patch vlog for  Monch n' Cronch!


King Tut Tour

This summer break I managed to come close to a childhood dream! I have long marveled over ancient Egypt, particularly about its most popular personality, King Tutankhamun. At last, I was able to behold a few of the most prized treasures from the tomb of the Golden Pharaoh in our visit to the California Science Center.

Christmas in July

We are more than halfway through 2018 now. So much has changed in a span of a few months. I am glad to be able to live each day with intention, both for personal growth and happiness. This post is basically a "life lately" entry to share about these things that have been making me happier.

Strawberry Moon

This year my birthday falls in time for the Strawberry Moon. I have not sewn in a while so I was very excited to make my birthday dress. This also meant being able to use fabrics I have hoarded for so long.
