Sunlight romance.

Dark red casper&pearl floral headband, Black gifted Vedette Shapewear Marian lace body suit, Burgundy American Apparel corduroy skirt, Ivory vintage Chanel bag, F21 gold ring, Tawny Jeffrey Campbell clog wedges.

I never thought about wearing lingerie in my casual everyday outfits, but Vedette Shapewear inspired me to think differently.  Their collection of amazing lingerie including body suits are gorgeous with the most durable and body hugging material.  It really felt like a glove putting it on and in addition hid unwanted fat -- I know I am a tad bit small but I do have my own problem areas too :P lol.  I fell in love with this piece especially with the floral lace part on top.  It's perfect for summer as well with a skinny strap on one side -- definitely going to tuck it in some high-waisted shorts later on! :)
For the outfit, it was a challenge for me to think of how to wear lingerie in an everyday look, so decided to make a romantic outfit with my faavorite floral headband by casper&pearl, AA circle corduroy skirt.  Added my Chanel vintage bag and my JC clog wedges for a summer vibe.
And random note, oh my g..the weather has changed DRASTICALLY ever since these past weeks, finally i can say summer is here!  Almost 80 degrees today.  How I've missed you Sun!! (cough, and my legs have too..they need a tan lol).
--
How have you lovelies been??  This past weekend was crazy busy!  My younger brother Alec just graduated from high school on Saturday!  Along with my younger cousin too.  So funny, when they called their names, had to stand extra long -- they announced their names one after the other.  I brought along with me a big sign saying "Congrats Grad! So proud of you little brother."  Stuck a baby pic of me & him on it.  Sigh, little siblings grow up just WAY too fast before my eyes.  Gets me all sentimental and happily sad :P.
Which btw, CONGRATS to all you recent grads!!!  :)
--
I lastly just want to say, woww..my blog's Facebook page now has 200 Likes!!!  You all are so amazing. Thank you for all your support not only on here but also my new FB page!  Promise a Youtube video is going to come soon!  I'm meeting up with some of my fave blogger girls tomoro, maybe I can sneak in a video too ;P.  Thank you Beautifuls once again!  Have an amazing rest of your week, enjoy the sun and Summer!

PS. Check out my recent feature on Refinery 29 ft. summer outfits w/ other beautiful bay area bloggers!

♥, Kathleen.

Have a good rest of your week! :)
