Where Winter Was || Button Skirt & Turtleneck

Hello Hello,

looks by mc, button skirt

Most days I can’t get my hair together (as you can see from the photos). Even so, I’m excited about an upcoming project that I am starting. Yes, it has to do with writing right here and now. Being a writer, I read, I find stories, I create. I can’t wait to share it with you!

In the meantime, January is already soaring by. I can’t believe we’re already into the last full week of January!

looks by mc, skirt, turtleneck This past weekend was in the 50’s. I know colder days are coming (February is always cold), so I took advantage of the warm weather. This outfit is simple. I went with a striped turtleneck for extra coverage and warmth, the stripes add an extra “pop” to a rather minimal look. READ MORE

Black & Blue || Sweater & Turtleneck

Hello Hello,

looks by mc-new year winter outfit

It’s January. Well, 9 days into January. Like I mentioned in my previous post, this new year I am not making new year resolutions. I only have roll-over goals: things I want to keep going and improving on. I’m excited for this year though! A lot more excited than I was for last year. Though the days have been cold, January didn’t start off too shabby. I’ve already done something I’ve never done before. Plus, I know spring is coming. (The sun has been setting later than in December).

To embrace this cold January, I thought it’ll be appropriate to pair up black and blue. I especially love this chunky blue sweater (similar here). It helps to bring a pop of color into a rather simple and dark look. I layered a black turtleneck underneath, then finished with black pants and booties (similar here). READ MORE

A New Year || Hmong Inspired Dress

Hello Hello,

modern hmong dress

Even though it totally feels just like a normal tomorrow with the only difference being the year, it’s a new year! 2016 was a year of challenges and emotions both good and bad. I spent a lot of time thinking more than doing but I believe those times were much needed. While I’m a bit anxious and afraid of what’s to come, I’m also excited for this new year–the new challenges, the new activities, the new things I’ll learn. I’m challenged, encouraged, and empowered to make this new year different.

For the first time, I will not be having resolutions, just 2 goals. But today, I’m here to share this outfit with you. This Hmong inspired dress was made by my grandmother a few years ago. I wanted to feature it here. I layered the dress over a white turtleneck and black tights. The embroidered pieces on the dress was actually hand embroidered. How cool is that?

End of the Year || Stripes & Denim

Hello Hello,

year-end-looksbymc

The end of the year is upon us. Very soon it will be January 2017! This year flew by so fast, so many things happened. I am excited for the new year though. I’m excited for what’s to come: new things, new plans, new goals.

Due to the holiday season, I’ve been busy with work and life so this fashion blog has been MIA. But, I’ve been putting a lot of thoughts into this blog and I’m excited for what’s to come this new year. It will remain a fashion and lifestyle blog, just with slight renovations. But before the new year hits us, I wanted to share one final 2016 outfit with you.
