Summer Tent Dress

Another great outfit for the office! One of my favorite things about summer is being able to wear dresses to work. I prefer these tent dresses because you can breathe inside. When it's too tight, I feel too self conscious and end up having to pull down the dress constantly (girls you know what I mean). And.. I don't like showing my figure at work - it's kind of weird to me. 

This dress fits right into my color palette (black and white). I paired it with these beige sandals by Vince Camuto that my dad picked out for me while he was visiting LA (so stylish he is!). I also bought these super cute stacked rings from Urban, which I've been wearing everyday.

My sisters are coming to visit tomorrow, so lots of photos to come on Instagram! Wooo! So excited!

Well in the hopes of sunny weather, summer parties and yummy fruits, here are two super cute wallpapers for your desktop and mobile - designed by Brandy of A Sensible Habit! Woooo! Already got the giant oranges set as my iPhone background! If you download them, don't forget to snap a pic and tag us @asensiblehabit & @heyyehblog and hashtag #ASHxHYwallpapers!

A Visit to Sunken City



Feng and I decided to head down to San Pedro to visit the Sunken City. Not sure if you heard about it, but basically in 2011, a huge rainstorm caused an 800 feet section of the coastal road to collapse into the Pacific Ocean. You can read and see more photos here. It's now turned into this abandoned hiking trail with graffiti on the leftover concrete. My photos don't really do it justice, but if you ever get the chance to visit, it's pretty amazing. Watch the video above to see where the secret entrance is!

1 Dress 3 Ways

I don't believe in wearing an outfit just once. I can't do it! It's just a waste of money! And when I like something, I wear it until it tears, changes color or goes out of style. So today, I will show you how to easily turn 1 dress into 3 outfits! This is for the time when you have to go to work, then go straight to a happy hour and then out to a club...  It doesn't always happen to me, but you know what I mean ;)

Check out the behind the scenes video here!

HONEYMOON

About five months after our wedding, Tim and I finally went on our honeymoon. In hindsight I wouldn't recommend this, go on your honeymoon right after your wedding! I'm telling you, returning to work the weekend after is nothing short of anticlimactic (which is what we both did). Although the honeymoon was the last thing on my mind with everything that had to be planned, I can't deny that I was a little bit concerned if we would even go on one. Once you get back into your daily grind it's too easy to push aside, our honeymoon should have been put on a higher priority. We decided to go to Italy and visit four places including Rome, Venice, Florence and Vernazza.  They were all magnificent; pasta, gelato and market food overload, rough life I know.
