Happy Spring! New Beginnings


I was on a hiatus for many months but I. AM. BACK!!! I love this season for its colors, warmer weather, and definitely the feeling of NEW BEGINNINGS! 

When I think of Spring fashion, I think of light, playful style that is relaxing yet chic. I like to transition from the cold winter (ok...mild in CA) into cool breezy spring with my style by pairing feminine pieces with bold/dark pieces. =) Here I chose a feminine top with men-inspired (linen) trousers.

Top: F21
Black men-inspired linen trousers: H&M

F21 Top: I love the loud colorful prints which is contrasted by the feminine lace neckline
(What a contradiction! =P)
This linen trousers are loose, comfortable and perfect for the cool spring weather!
A big bonus: the style is flattering for almost all body figures!
Try pairing them with heels to elongate the legs and give yourself a few inches (ahem....without anyone knowing! ;)

Because the trousers are already loose, the top should be fitted or at least tucked in to accentuate that nice feminine waistline. It'll instantly give you a polish look! 
Make-up: Neutral
Brows: Benefit Brow Zings
Eye make-up: Benefit (Fake up concealer, BADgal waterproof Liner, They're Real! Mascara), Urban Decay eyeshadows
Face: Sunblock, Benefit CORALista blush
Lips: vaseline

Here is a close up of the eye make-up.
The trick is keeping it soft by blending colors together. 

I hope you enjoy this post. It has been awhile and I will admit I do feel a bit rusty as I post this! Please forgive me if this is not up to par! :)

In the past few months (or year) much has happened but there were many lessons that I learned about myself, others, and God's love. I am still very grateful and thankful for experiences and especially the friends and family who were there for me. Regardless of what has happened or will happen, I can say that I am very BLESSED.   I know that He has a plan for me and better things are yet to come!

Spring is about rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal and regrowth! So cheers to new beginnings! Stay Strong, stay Motivated, and always look for the silver lining in every situation! Don't give up! Do what makes you happy and everything will fall in its place!

I miss you all! See you again soon!!! ^_^
