Outfit of the day: Pleatsssssssss

(Blazer: Instyle, dress: Entry) 

(Boots: H&M) 

I'm sitting here typing this as I listen to Skrillex and my younger cousin lip syncs to it....it's really quite amusing and has probably made my day. Waiting out my day until I get to eat some tomato soup and grilled cheese later while baking cookies! I'm such a good mother to my boys on the tennis team. =] 


Outfit of the day: High-waists and mustard

Hello world! Fall has started to slowly creep up on San Diego but it is not enough to make me go put on all my scarves and coats quite yet. It is definitely still warm enough here to walk around in shorts all day, every day. This is probably why I decided to go to school here and live here afterwards too. I would write more but I am up to my eyes in job applications and other work I have to do. So toodles! 


Outfit of the day: tennis skirts

(Shirt: c/o Mom, skirt: Wilson tennis skirt, shoes: H&M, watch: Michael Kors, purse: Alexander Wang)

It has been quite awhile since I've put up a blog post and I so apologize. I have just had kind of a lack of inspiration lately and I am now putting one up because my girlfriend told me I had to. So here we go! I went home for a couple of weeks in September to kind of relax and also help out my parents here and there with their business. While there, I found this old tennis skirt that my mom wore when she played tennis and it was perfect to turn into a pleated skirt! I can just wear it every day like it was made to be that way. Those old ladies back in the day knew what they were doing when they made these to be tennis skirts! 


Outfit of the day: Funny Face

(Dress: H&M, shoes: Franco Sarto, purse: Alexander Wang, watch: Michael Kors, sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs) 

(I was really excited because Steven told me that my skin matched the walls...signifying that I had reached some form of tan over the past couple of weeks. Yes, I got excited. Don't judge me?) 

Yayy!! So finally a new blog post, I have been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off lately (sorry for those vegetarian/vegan readers? It's a saying?). Finally though, I managed to come home at a time when both my roommate and I were at home. Took some quick photos before I was off to play some tennis! Clearly my roommate likes to take my pictures when I have the most awkward facial expressions. On the other hand, I am heading home this weekend for some family time with my friend Sam in an impromptu, quite the last minute trip. Oh and I'm sorry for the lack of creativity in my outfits these days. Black dresses are easy to throw on and look polished? Either way, I love the cut of this dress, although around the arms it is a little tight....just means I need to make that fat into muscle!! 


Outfit of the day: Pannikin's

Dress: Foreign Exchange, belt: thrifted, boots: Asos

This past week, I meant to get a blog post in but I was staying on campus for a week as a "counselor" and did not have much motivation for getting dressed in anything more than shorts and a tank. However, the week has passed and I went to brunch this morning with one of my good friends at Pannikin in Downtown La Jolla. It was delicious and I didn't have enough foresight to take pictures of my food before devouring it. I got this dress from Foreign Exchange the other day and it is by far one of my favorite new dresses! I have been looking for the perfect casual black dress for awhile and I think this would be it. 


Outfit of the day: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

(Dress: gift from my mother, shoes: Michael Kors, belt: thrifted, clutch: Coach)

Yesterday was my birthday and two of my BEST friends from college took me out to dinner at this cute place in downtown La Jolla called Barbarella. This dress was a gift from my mom awhile back and I haven't had a chance to wear so I thought it was a perfect dress to wear for dinner. After dinner, a friend and I were supposed to go bowling but that didn't go as planned and it ended up being a quiet night walking around town and just talking. Overall I had a great time and I am always forever grateful to all my friends for dealing with me despite knowing all my flaws and imperfections! 


Outfit of the day: Utility

(jacket/tunic: c/o Mom, boots: Asos, bag: Alexander Wang, beanie: Forever21)

Another blog post! Whooo, look at me being all on top of my life...sorta. Anyhow, contrary to belief or the evidence of sun, it was actually quite cold that day. This is why I look like it's fall in San Diego and not summer. But it is okay, I kinda like the practice for fall? 


Wish List

Alexander Wang Dress from: Kirna Zabete

Jewelry Holder by: Polli

Jemma Platform boot, Dolce Vita from: Dolce Vita

Outfit of the day: Holes

(Top: c/o Mom...again)

Sorry for such a delayed outfit post. I have been absolutely swamped with stuff lately and I'm not even working...goodness what's wrong with this picture? But anyway, here is my latest outfit. It's pretty simple but I am in LOVE with this shirt and all the cute lacy details. Pretty much perfect for the SD summer don't you think? Oh and please excuse my vacant/makeup less face in the picture above. It was early in the morning and I wasn't fully awake yet...


Outfit of the day: Pleated

Ring: YSL Arty Ring, bracelet: Betsey Johnson, watch: Michael Kors, sunglasses: vintage Dior

Shoes: Ann Taylor Loft, jacket/shirt/skirt: wholesale market, purse: Alexander Wang

Finally a new outfit post. I've been super busy in moving to a new place and trying to get settled and find a job and whatnot. Anywho, I don't know if you can really see the details, but I'm actually wearing a pleated skort. It's pretty much my new favorite thing EVER! I also wrote that I got my whole outfit from the wholesale market which is true. My mom runs her own boutique and she gets all the clothes from the wholesale market in LA and thanks to her I'm able to get all these boutique clothes at really cheap prices! Ooh, I also found these shoes that I bought in high school when I was back home and I re fell in love with them. How perfect are they? Oh and I cut my hair..hehe =] AND I got myself a little graduation gift in the form of this beautiful Rocco handbag from Alexander Wang. My new favorite thing in the whole wide world! 


7 Summer Must-Haves

Summer is in full swing now and the sun is shining hot and bright. If you're anything like us here at ZooShoo, summer is a chance to shed those spring layers and really experiment with light materials like chiffon and cotton. However, as much fun as experimenting is there are a few must-haves that every girl should have to jumpstart her summer wardrobe.

Summer essentials

1. Sundress - A must-have in any girl's summer closet, the sundress is perfect for the hot weather and can also double as a cover up when you're heading to the beach. Choose one in either a print or a solid color and you can't go wrong!

2. Denim cutoffs - Shorts are the summer equivalent to the jeans that we virtually live in year round. Find the right pair and guaranteed you will live in them all summer.

3. Swimsuit - How could you spend summer without the perfect swim suit? Whether heading to the beach, the pool, or just hanging out in the backyard, throw on your favorite swimwear, get a little tan, but don't forget to put on your sunscreen!

4. Hat - This must-have summer essential can double as sun protection or a fashion statement. Pick out a cute fedora like the one above or if you're a little more adventurous, find a big floppy sun hat which will be sure to get you a few compliments.

5. Flat sandals - These are a must in every girl's closet because if you find the right pair, they can be so versatile and worn with almost every outfit. Additionally, they are sure to give your feet a little bit of rest from the high heels you've been bouncing around town in.

6. Sunglasses - Though an accessory, they are definitely an essential. There are so many options out there, so pick one in your favorite shape and walk out the door in confidence. Additionally, if you're not feeling the makeup one day, just throw on some shades and skip the beauty routine for a day.

7. Day-to-night wedges - For those of you who prefer a heel to the flat sandal, wedges are a perfect alternative. Definitely the comfiest in the world of heels, you will surely impress while staying comfy at the same time.
These Bamboo Besexy Wedges are a perfect choice. The leopard print will be sure to get everyone's attention and they can easily transition from day to night!  You can also get in on another great trend and try to mix some prints with the great wedges!


Outfit of the day: Red shorts and crazy hair

Shorts: Target, shoes: NYC Inc., tank: Urban Outfitters

Ring: YSL Arty Ring gifted 

This was the day after graduation, with all my hair and makeup still partially intact. I was too tired to take it off the night before! I was being lazy? Sue me? I'm kidding, but don't judge me? Anyhow, at this point I don't even remember what I did the day after graduation but I do know I slept in until VERY late. Once again, being lazy. On a side note, I got this beautiful YSL Arty ring that I had been lusting over for ages as a graduation gift. I am sooo in love with it!! New favorite jewelry forever!! Well I still have tons of errands to run before my photographer runs off forever and I don't have anyone to help me move stuff anymore! Tootles!

Dinner at Roy's

I've done it guys!! Well I did about a week and a half ago but I still did it! I graduated from college and I couldn't have done it without all the support from my friends and family. I love them all so much! That chapter of my life has now closed but all the people who have influenced me and that I've met along the way are forever. I am so thankful for everyone who has been there to support me and really push me to do the best that I could. I can now just use those lessons learned to really make something of myself and go forth and make my dreams come true! Thank you!! But until then, time to find a job to fund my dream hunting! Tootles!
