Racing with the Sun

You know that fall is around the corner when our days are getting shorter and darker. I learned this first hand as my friend, Isabelle, and I set out to find this gorgeous view of my hometown. As we were driving up the plateau, we didn't realize that Mr. Sun goes to sleep earlier. Usually when I go out on a photo shoot, I can take my time. However, this time we were on a mission to beat the clock.

That's kind of how I feel about my life right now. Since I spend the most of my day at work, I try to do something everyday after work and stay outside as long as possible before it gets dark. I'm in a race with the sun. For the most part, I think I'm winning.

Check back soon to see more pictures taken by the lovely, Isabelle Chu.

White Out

Summer is almost over and there is one trend I haven't worn: all-white. I wanted to wear it earlier but there was one problem. I am very clumsy. I held back trying this trend because I was 99% sure I would spill on my outfit if I wore all white. But for some reason, I recently decided that I was up for the challenge. Surprisingly, after a day in all-white I didn't spill a thing! I'm not going to lie though - I may or may not worn a bib napkin during my meals and ordered light-colored foods. But I still call it a victory!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me sporting the white nails trend too. At first, it was really hard for me to branch out from my normal red and pink nail polish but I'm happy I tried it. It's actually my new favorite nail color for the summer (and I'm going to wear it as long as possible).

White is very versatile, flatters all skin tones, and enhances your tan. 
Would you wear all-white clothing or nail polish?

Keep It Simple

I'm not only trying to simplify my life but I'm also trying to simplify my style. Lately, my style has been real simple and easy. Sometimes I like to go out with no jewelry, no purse and on occasion no phone. It might sound crazy but it's doable. And yes, I don't mind carry the few things that I need in my hand. I don't do it everyday but when I do - it's freeing. 

Have you tried simplifying your style?
