This is one of my favorite photos from this month! It was taken while on vacation in Temecula, CA with my family. There will be a whole post about our trip coming soon! This photo was taken on the way to lunch at the Ponte Tasting Room, which was my favorite meal of the whole trip. It was still early in the day, but it was so hot outside already! That’s how I decided on this little number! Super cute, but still really airy and comfy to be in! Shop the look below!

This photo was actually taken back in June, but didn’t make it up to instagram until this month! It was taken by one of my good friends, Shelby. She has a photography instagram you can look at here! Obviously you can’t see the full look I was rocking in this photo, but you definitely get a look at the best part of it which is the print on this tshirt dress! Any Stranger Things fans with recognize it as the best quote from season one. LA is going through a bit of a heat wave, so it was pretty warm out, but luckily for me I picked out a tshirt dress to help keep me cool. Pair with some booties and you have a simple, but super cute outfit for a scorching hot day. Shop the outfit below!

This post is another one that was taken back in June, but took more than a month to make the gram. It was taken on vacation in Costa Rica in one of my favorite places at the resort, the spa. They had this gorgeous pool and hot tub where you could hear the ocean crashing in the background. We spent hours there just moving back in forth from the cool water of the pool to the boiling water of the hot tub. I adored spending time here and could seriously spend an eternity floating in that pool. And I loved the outfit I wore during the short walk there. It’s one of my go tos! Shop it below!

I took this really fun shot with Jill while we were exploring LA for cool spots to take photos (post coming soon)! This is one of LACMA’s attractions that sort of flies under the radar as people flock the lamps instead. There’s normally a good amount of people waiting around for their turn to take pics but we managed to find an opening while it was empty. We knew it wouldn’t last long so we took full advantage. If you’ve never been to LACMA, definitely stop by if you’re in the area. There are lots of fun places to explore but this is one of my favs! I rocked a fun streetwear outfit with some cool jeans, sneakers, and a ballcap. My go to look when I’m feeling adventurous!

This is one of my favorite pictures of my trip to Chicago last month. My mom and I were wandering around Michigan Avenue super early in the morning one day and I saw this amazing doorway. One of the things I admire the most about Chicago is its architecture. Almost every building has its own unique style but this one stood out for sure. I mean come on, GOLD EVERYWHERE. I would seriously move there and I can’t wait to go back! It can be pretty cold so I threw on a nice flannel, ballcap, and my favorite jeans for a casual yet cool look to take on The Windy City.

This is another one of my favorite pics of the month. Jill and I were getting some work done, going around taking pics at a bunch of spots around the city, like we always do! The day was so beautiful and the sun was out to play (before the heatwave hit that is). As you can tell it was pretty bright because I could barely keep my eyes open! You can sort of see the asian in me coming out into the light hahah! I decided to rock one of my vintage tees with a pair of jeans and chucks for a hipster-ish look. I really love this shirt because of the fun pattern, I always feel cool when I wear it. It looks really neat with the design of the wall and thus why I love this picture!
And thats it for our very first Instagram roundup! I hope you enjoyed it! Don’t forget to explore our outfits by clicking the links we provided. We would love it if you would share your favorite post from your instagram that you posted this month in the comments below. Lets chat!
