Nothing is more simple, and more functional than a plain, white dress. And while it's something that exists in most people's closets, it's a piece that doesn't come without its own annoyances: It never stays that white for long; it gets dirty easily; and any rip, tear, or fray just makes it look more "meeeeeeehh." (Thumbs down).Read More
Statement items can be mad tricky when trying to style them into an OOTD. A totally fashion newbie mistake is paring your statement piece with another bold item, and this sometimes can make your whole look clash and look a bit overwhelming (uhhhem I'll pass on that). I would recommend paring a statement piece with other less bold items to keep all the eyes onto the item.
Even though a shimmery embroidered fabric, like my Yumi Kim skirt, is usually reserved for nights out drinking w/the girls and holiday parties, it can easily be pulled off during the day when it is kept paired down with some key basic essentials (hollaaaa at Mai Ugg boots + bangles) 🙌 Paired with these basic items this skirt can be worn from office to a cocktail party to a weekend hangout.
I had the most magical evening at the DarlingxUGG dinner last weekend, which was hosted at a beautiful home in the LA hills. I was surrounded by 13 other influential, beautiful, and impactful women, and felt so honored to be a part of the evening. Darling Mag's entire foundation is based on the empowerment of women, something that I strive to achieve every day in my work. They inspire women to be proud of being a natural, modern woman and encourage them to create positive change. I was so proud to be part of this wonderful event!

The business-casual dress code is one of the most difficult to define, and that might have something to do with the fact that it's a complete oxymoron — seriously, how can one be "business" and "casual," at the same time?Read More
Spring time is as good of an excuse as any to show a little skin. As much as we love a décolletage-baring bandeau, strapless dresses certainly aren’t for the an average day. Luckily, there is a chic option that ensures you won’t have to deal with tricky double-sided tape (or those insane multi-strap bras).Read More
Ever wonder if there was type of pant that is flattering for pretty much every body type?? Guys, there is... and it is what I am styled in today. These figure flattering pants come in so many different shapes and sizes, so there is definitely an option out there for every woman.

Boom. All reasons to get into off-the-shoulder shwag this Spring. Yumi Kim just nails it when it comes to resort wear. From the jubilant variety of prints to the feather soft, light-weight fabrics, her designs bring vacay-vibes-no-filter-needed feelings.🌴 With festival season right around the corner (who's going next week??), it's the perf time to shop Yumi's Mia Silk Romper. This is legit the sweetest little one piece for any shape (it actually fits so loose around the middle it's like his T you're wearing, except masked by silky florals 🙌 ) And, you're welcome..pits stay sweat free during those long days in the steamy desert hot heat. ✌
Off the shoulder pieces are just universally flattering on all body shapes because most people can't complain about their shoulders, (it's you I'm talking to.) And they are easily adaptable to extra layers when you need to wear the item from day to night. Lazy days lounging at the pool? Only if we're having drinks with the girls after :)
You can take the girl out of the festival, but you can’t take the festival out of the girl. Mmmhm you heard me. Festival season is here and I cannot get enough of styling festival wear on a daily basis. Peasant dresses are a no fuss type of item that requires little to no styling because they typically will be the statement item of the outfit.Read More
When I hear "wrap dress," the first thing that comes to mind is DVF and those slinky, boob-emphasizing print wrap dresses from the 1970s. And I have a confession to make... I am obsessed with wrap anything. Wrap dresses, wrap tops, and now wrap jumpsuits... I am one happy Jeannie right now. See #MaiTips below on how I like to style a wrap fitted jumpsuit for these warmer months.
- Pick a flattering fit for your body type. If you have a fuller bust like me a wrap jumpsuit can be super flattering and slimming but still there to give support to your ladies (if u know what I mean). Click here for another wrap jumpsuit option.
- Jumpsuits can be intimidating when it comes to length if you happen to be in the under 5'5" club (raises hand). Since my jumpsuit offers leg slits this is a great way to avoid your jumpsuit being too long! Click here to shop for a similar option.

Trousers for work? Uhhhm... not necessarily a groundbreaking combo but sometimes this trend can get overlooked when it shouldn't be. Sure, you can just pair a basic pair of straight trousers with a simple blouse, but why be basic when you can have the opportunity to create a mad sassy outfit.Read More
I have been seeing stars lately... uh heeemm, literally. The star print pattern has been trending since what it seems like over a year, and I still cannot seem to get enough of this pattern. It brings me back to Mai childhood when Mama Mai would dress me up in some cutesy dresses and they would always have a star print splattered all over it.Read More

Lately I have spotted a lot of great street style looks with eye-catching royal blue pieces and can't help but be inspired to try the color.
