Ann Taylor Friends & Family Sale Picks

Saturday, November 15, 2014

Use code FRIENDS40  at check out on Ann Taylor for 40% off everything. 
Here are some fitting room try ons. 

First up, the classic scalloped lace dress. The dress is fully lined and comes in a regular and petite fit. 
Since I'm at the petite cutoff height 5'4" I always like to try on both regular and petite pieces. The petite dress hits mid thigh and regular fit hits above the knees, therefore the perfect office appropriate length. 

The lighting was quite harsh in the fitting room.  In order to do the lace detail justice I decided to include some stock photos. 

The first dress I saw walking into the store was this gorgeous shift dress. Decked out in jewels,  this dress is perfect for the holiday parties! Fitting has a natural waistline but is a little tight around the hips.  For those with a curvy figure size up for a more relaxed fit. 

Last piece was my favorite piece I tried on.  I couldn't seem to locate this top on the website. It was in the sale section that was already marked off to about $44 with an extra 40% off from the friends & family sale. There were quite a few of these at my local Ann Taylor so try your luck!  The top has a structured neoprene finish with an attached flow-y segment to elongate your silhouette.  Business casual approved! 

Other notable pieces include this crepe wrap top that is perfect for layering and this perfectly chic tweed moto jacket. Limited sizes and colors left.  

That's it for now! Happy shopping and please tag me if you end up getting any of these pieces!

Nautical and Peplum

Sunday, September 28, 2014

As the last of summer approaches, I find myself reaching for these shorts more frequently!
It has been a hot summer in Southern California, but Mr. K and I have enjoyed every bit of it! 

Something else I have also been loving are these contemporary flats that are very reminiscent of the Alexander Wang flats I passed on a while ago.  Since the AW Ester flats are virtually sold out everywhere and we are venturing into fall I opted fort these more affordable ASOS ones instead. They are actually quit comfortable.  Also available in different colors. 

Thank you for read and have a great week!

Lace and Leopard Anniversary Dress

Monday, August 18, 2014

NordstromHello my MisoBunnies! 
Today marks 5 years between Mr K and I! 

We are not doing anything crazy, just a simple dinner out.  When I was little, I always yearned to grow up so I could dress up and go to work.  Now that I am all grown up, I quite miss my carefree college days.  However, I am grateful I found such an amazing man to call my husband to be. 

I never thought I would get so lucky to be where I am today.  Mr. K and I met by chance really, and during the lowest times of my life.  I never thought a simple neurobiology report could turn into this.  If you are still searching... for love, for job, for future, don't give up.  You never know what you will find the next corner around!

I'm Engaged!

Saturday, August 16, 2014

I'm engaged!!

Many, if not all of our families and close friends already know, but I wanted to come on here and share my story with all of you.  Throughout the last 5 years I could not have learned more, traveled further, been happier.  We have all heard this questions before, "how do you know when you have found the one?"  The truth is, you won't.  You know you have found the right one when you can truly be yourself regardless of circumstances. For me it is waking up to a pot of freshly brewed coffee, coming home to a home cooked dinner, and a sense of humor that never ceases to make me laugh.  Its that simple.  All of which I never had to ask, request, or speak up for.  He just knows, and is selfless enough to go out of his way to do those things so my life will be that much easier.  I feel incredibly lucky and grateful. 

Like many girls, I have always envisioned prince charming proposing under the most extravagant circumstances.  Maybe time has changed me.  Over the years, I've experienced my share of heartbreaks and I realized truly that happiness doesn't have to be extravagant.  Nothing about marriage is extravagant really, but I am willing to take this journey and share this experience with my best friend.  So how did he propose you ask?  He surprised me at a time I least expected...I was sleeping!  When I woke up he sat on my bed with a hardcover book.  He said he had a story to tell me.  As I listened to his memories of us throughout the last 5 years we have been together, tears just rolled down my cheeks.  At the end of his book, he asked me and I said YES!
