This is for the days when you just want to be comfortable. Throw on a loose maxi dress, chunky sandals, and your necessities in a backpack and you are ready to conquer the world.



What I love about a simple outfit like this is that you can let your accessories do all the talking. My boyfriend recently went to Form festival at Arcosanti and brought back this Malachite gemstone necklace as a gift. I love it so much, and I really wanted it to be the focal point. I kept everything else simple, letting the color of the stone really pop.

Whenever I walk by a cool looking house I am inclined to take photos there. There's just something that fascinates me about the way each person individualizes their home, from the paint color, to the plants they choose to adorn their front lawn, to the window treatments, all of these things make up variables that set ourselves apart from our neighbors. In a way it is a lot like how we choose to get dressed every morning. We want to wear pieces that highlight our best assets, sets us apart from others, yet also fitting in with the neighborhood. But there are times when I walk past a house so special, painted in the brightest aqua and turquoise shades clashing in such a magnificent way, it takes my breath away. It's the house on the block that does not fit in with the others and some may call an eyesore, but I appreciate it so much.

  32. I love going to someone's house and just being able to admire their personal style. I've learned that just because something isn't my taste has nothing to do with how beautiful something is. There is beauty in every difference. Especially homes. <3
    I love the jewelry you paired with this!

  47. I have the exact same feelings about homes! When I would walk around the neighborhood where I lived in the bay area I would take so many photos of people's homes. I'm sure everyone was like what the heck is she taking a photo of haha. There is just something about someone's home that intrigues me.

  48. You look absolutely beautiful in this color, Yuka; I love that you matched the same color of your dress and lipstick! Your boyfriend has such great taste and knows your style so well, that necklace is SO beautiful and does indeed pop against the brown! I love the analogy you gave of dressing and decorating the outside of our homes, it's so true and I couldn't agree more! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far, gorgeous!
