A Week in Tees: Day 4


Traveling is always crazy when it comes to my wardrobe. Thank goodness for some basic tees! I'm kind of dying over this striped Stylemint top. With the multi-colors, you can easily pair it with a great pair of skinnies and instantly feel chic. This plum pair of jeans are a lot more lively than the classic dark wash. It's also what I wore during my flight from NYC to LA. It's low key, comfortable, yet still colorful and fun. The only thing I packed that probably weighed more than anything was my jewelry collection. I swear everywhere I travel, I bring this big bag full of rings and necklaces. Never knowing what piece I'll end up wanting to wear with a specific look, I go a bit nuts and pack them all. A problem? Definitely. Anyways, I'm back in California and have been getting a lot of work done, yet still giving myself time to relax. I'm addicted to jasmine tea, as is everyone in my family! I guess that's what happens when half of your family is Chinese. Somehow I'm always a bit healthier when home as all there is in the cupboards are natural foods and veggies. With that, I might as well get back in the Cali groove by biking and of course, YOGA. My friends and I already plan on doing it right on the beach. Oh so typical here on the west coast. Christmas is just around the corner, time to do things right!

Love that top! I'm always searching for a chic tee that can just be thrown on and look amazing, and yours is gorgeous! I've never actually tried jasmine tea, but I've got a friend who's addicted to it, so I'll definitely try it sometime! Yoga on the beach sounds amazing!
