Vince Sweater, Alpaca Fur Collar Scarf & YSL Muse

Hi all!
We had such a nice and warm weenkend here in Cleveland Ohio before Thanksgiving, which was very rare. While my husband took Allison to the playground, I went for a window shopping. Anthtopoligie, Trader Joe’s, TJ Maxx were all filled with crowds. No wonder, holiday shopping season has arrived. I would not buy anything before the black Friday, because some stores will have an extra saving on sale items, such as Saks and NM. Nordstrom Rack will offer $10 gift card with every $100 purchases. Another must-go place this year is Toy’s R Us, where I need to buy some toys for my little girl: any one knows their deals?
Today’s outfit was built with pieces bought in the past 3 years. To date, they are still great purchases to me, and I am still in love with them!

My mom and I took Allison to the Beachwood Mall today, I purchased this skirt I were really in love. I paired the skirt with two different denim top as soon as I got home. Which look  do you like the most?

Sand and water fun @ 4th: white tee & silk skirt

We had a fun 4th today, and I hope all of you did as well! If you take a long weekend, I hope you have a great time in the rest of days!

 After the rain stopped this morning, we went to Castle Island. Though it was super super super hot (what else can be better than a white tee in such a hot day?), the coastal water is still chilling – I don’t think I am brave enough to swim in the sea here – had some water & sand fun instead. Kids were very happy at the water & sand play 🙂

Freedom trail: Diane von Furstenberg Landy Top

My friends visited me from Cleveland, and we walked along the freedom trial together yesterday. It was hot, tired but had so much fun, especially with two cute kids. To get on the floral trend and stay cool, I wore my new DVF Landy top (it is on sale at $130 in Neiman Marcus, with extra 40% off!). This matte silk blouse has thick silk texture, which hangs really well! It says “dry clean only”, but  after I hand washed it last night, it stays like new even before ironing. It runs slightly large (as usual as many other loose fit tops).

@ old city hall, apparently we all like donkey!
