Sunday Mornings.

Sunday mornings are comparable to no other day in the week. There's just something about being in good company (my little sis + Diana), going to the dog park w/Charlie, joined by a warm cup of joe + sometimes if we get lucky -- sunshine. xx

I haven't finished decorating my bedroom quite yet but wanted to give you all a little glimpse. I've got big dreams for it, now if only someone would help me hang some frames. Also included: my #ootd. xx.

1. tshirt gifted by Sarah, simply because she thought the girl on it resembled me. <3 u sarah.
2. the only books that have made it to my new place so far: AP style: when I need to be reminded how to write, Art Directors Annual 80 - snatched up from the freebie bin at work: makes for a great coffee table book, MKA Olsen's 'Influence' book: because they are everything that embodies why I love, not fashion per se - but personal style overall. 
3. the most vicious dog you will ever meet: her name is Charlie & she's mine. 
4. gun jewelry holder from MartinPatrick3: it holds most of the things I put on everyday - MK watch, jade ring & stud earrings.
5. candles + bowties: just cause.
6. essentials on my bedside table: solid cologne, nail polishes in neutral tones + Siang pure menthol/camphor balm (trusted + tried Asian remedy for when I'm feeling under the weather).
7. official MLB game ball gifted from the doc in my 'bout it, 'bout it sleeve.
8. chinese lantern from a shoot I did with Chrissy: to cover up the hideous light fixture.

outfit details: shirt - h&m, skirt - bcbg max azria, tights: wolford, booties: isaac mizrahi, hat: profound aesthetic, watch: MK, ring: forever21
