Jacket-Turned Shirt Dress

I went to Saddle Ranch in Hollywood for the first time this past Saturday, for an informal outing with a group of people that I really like. I wanted to look comfortable and casual but still fashionable, so I brought out my new favorite clothing item Kent Checkered Button Down Shirt (http://www.tobi.com/tops/tees#color_id=91596). If I can, I would wear this everyday. It's so comfortable and i can be worn in different ways.
The outerwear in this outfit was the new shirt dress. It is a button up dress that looks like just a button up shirt but is actually longer than a shirt and you can wear it literally as a dress. Because I knew I was going to be out at night and I knew I would end up feeling really cold if I just wore it as a dress, I put a simple black and white outfit together and threw the shirt dress on top as a jacket.
Because it is oversized, it gives a very comfortable look. I love that it has pockets on both sides because I can wear them with leggings and put my phone in those pockets.
Despite it being a new item in my closet, I have already worn it out on different occasions, whether it was to just drop off and pick up my mother from work along with different chores, or even to school because it's so comfortable and so easy to wear.
It's definitely one of those pieces that are easy for an effortless but fashionable look.
It's also perfect for this awkward season in Los Angeles with it being hotter during the day and cooler during the night.
For those of you who know, I've been rocking the Adidas Superstars ever since I got them.
They are absolutely the most comfortable pair of shoes I own and I love how it looks good on pretty much everything and anything. I have paired it up with some of my super casual outfits and also with some semi-casual outfits, skirts and pants, leggings and shorts and even with dresses. They're so versatile and I love, love, love them!

So here are some photos from the hang out. Group pictures were pretty hard and even worse because it was getting dark but with the help of my super wide angle lens, we were able to at least get everyone in the pictures.
I just had to include that blurry photo because I really love it for some reason.
It reminds me how chaotic we get when we get together but in the end we have such a great time with one another, pigging out together and talking our hearts away.
And of course, them selfies.
I had their Cajun Burger and it was pretty good. It was so big though, I only ate half of it.
And we also had three different types of dessert on the house as an apology for one of our orders coming out really late.
We moved locations for some tea after at a fairly new place in Koreatown called Cafe Giverny.
It was pretty nice, I will definitely be going back there some time.
And to finish this post, here's a photo of me and my tea taken by Yejin Kim.

One-Piece Class

Before the actual sweater weather rolls in, here's a cute Sunday's best outfit by Sarah.
I was fooled because I thought this was a two-piece outfit.
It definitely would have been cute as a two-piece too, and it would've been cute as long pants as well.
Romper - Zara
Shoes - INC
Watch - Daniel Wellington
Clutch - ALAND (a Korean brand)
The band of her watch was a good color match for her entire outfit, because of the navy blue. The watch can be worn with a very casual outfit as well, but you can definitely dress it up by matching the color scheme well. And her clutch was just a classic black clutch, which looks good with almost any outfit and any look as well.
Kiju was just helping Sarah out a little, giving her some advices on posing. I couldn't leave these pictures out because it looks like she's what Koreans call "cody" for celebrities.
And I can't not include a commentary on her hair, because it looks beautiful.
I loved her choice of heels because any type of nude heels is a staple in a girl's wardrobe.
It looks good with almost any type of clothes of any color, and if you do not own a pair of nude heels, I highly recommend that you get one.
The block heels have been in lately, and they show off comfort that stilettos do not have.
Having a band around the ankle also makes it easier to walk in them because it holds your feet to the shoes rather than it slipping out all the time.
The slit in the back was my favorite part of the outfit. It is quite a simple outfit because it's just a one-piece that you pull on, but the slit detail made the outfit more interesting and gave the outfit character.
I hope you guys are looking forward to the sweater weather like me!

Grace Yourself.
