Hello friends – Hope you all had a fantastic start to the new year 🙂 Can’t believe we’re already one month into 2017. My apologies for the hiatus here on WID in the last 2 months…things always get crazier during the holiday season. I have, however, stayed active on Instagram and Snapchat (@whenindoubtblog), so I hope you are following along there!
At the end of November we traveled to Dubai and India for our dear friends’ wedding. It was such a whirlwind of a week, and I look forward to recapping it all for you here. In December, we reunited with my family in Tokyo, Japan. With everyone being in different places (hubby and I in NY, my sister’s family in Cali and my parents in Asia), family trips during Xmas have become an annual tradition.
Back to back traveling can often take a toll on your body. So whenever I do that, being comfortable is a top priority. I found these Lee jeans right before the holidays and have been so in love with them ever since. The fabric is super soft, providing plenty of stretch and comfort without losing shape. The material moves with your body so the style held up nicely after an entire day of sightseeing in Tokyo. It also felt like I was wearing leggings, which is always a plus! 🙂 I specifically picked the short petite (SP) length to show my ankles when I wear these with flats, loafers, or sneakers. I have yet to try them with boots, but am pretty sure they’ll look fantastic as well! The best part? They’re extremely affordable at less than $50 – one of each color for me please!
Happy weekend, everyone! As some of you may have noticed lately on my Instagram, I’ve been reaching for the color blush quite often. Fall colors have never really appealed to me (except for royal blue and burgundy), and with the unseasonably warm weather this year, my wardrobe seemed to have skipped straight to spring palettes 🙂 I recently came across this beautiful pink trench coat from Petite Studio and absolutely fell in love with it! Petite Studio is the only NYC-based online womenswear for, of, and by petite girls. It’s a relatively new brand and I adore their entire collection – they focus on a few key pieces at a time, but all of them are classic, clean, and extremely buildable. For someone who often has to consider clothing suitable for both work and personal, I find Petite Studio’s selection highly versatile. I can’t wait to wear this trench again come springtime!
Happy new week, guys! You all know about my affinity for luxury handbags – clothing and accessories come and go, but bags and shoes are two things I’m willing to invest in. A classic high-end piece not only spices up your closet, but if well taken care of, it will pay itself off over time. Of course, unless money is not an issue for you (clearly NOT the case here or I would be writing this post from a private jet instead of my couch 🙂 ), designer handbags can get very expensive. If you are lusting over last season’s Celine or Gucci but don’t want to pay full price, I’d highly recommend checking out pre-owned pieces from reliable marketplaces. These days a lot of pre-loved pieces are good as new, sometimes actually brand new, but at a much more reasonable price point.
Take this gorgeous discounted Saint Laurent Sac De Jour from Trendlee for example. I had been considering this bag for quite some time now. Its sleek design is perfect for the office and I simply can’t take my eyes off of the beautiful raspberry red shade. The quality is so pristine it’s almost brand new. The price? 40% off retail!
Happy October, guys! I had promised you a travel guide on some of the Spanish cities we visited last month, and here’s the first one – Palma, Mallorca! Although half of our time there was spent attending friends’ wedding, we still had a ton of fun roaming around the vibrant capital of Mallorca. I can’t wait to return again to explore the rest of this gorgeous Mediterranean island. In the meantime, here are some highlights from our Palma experience. I hope these will be helpful to those planning a visit there!
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival everyone! Can’t believe it’s already mid-September. In my previous post I mentioned that we were on our way to Spain for a 10-day vacation + wedding. I hope you had enjoyed following along our adventure on Instagram and Snapchat! It was a very eventful and inspirational trip as we visited Barcelona, San Sebastián and Mallorca. Once all the craziness surrounding NYFW dies down, I will be sure to share a travel guide on each city with you 🙂
You all know how I feel about the end of yet another summer – insert images of me kicking & screaming like a spoiled little sh*t because deep down I really don’t want summer to go – I’m not a big fan of fall, and a even lesser one of winter. Warm weather is generally my thing unless it was like the blistering heat that hit NY last week. Running around the city in what feels like 100+ degrees oven was certainly no fun. Nonetheless, I wanted to share one of my favorite late summer looks from the trip. I wore this Zara embroidered checked top while sightseeing in Mallorca. Thank to Gucci, embroidered pieces are the hottest thing this season and I’m a huge fan. I also love that the fun sleeves trend continues to persist (remember this sleeves post I published earlier this year).
For the office I’d pair it with navy pants like these (or these, these) or a black pencil skirt. Let me know if you’d want to see how to pair this for the cooler weather! 🙂
