VLOG | Autumn Look Book at 1/15 Coffee Menteng

Hello, Guys! and Girls? Haha! Sorry for the not-so-funny joke but all I wanted to say was I am sorry for the very late update. I have been pretty occupied these days and I also would like to share that I recently received an e-mail informing me that I am officially a Campus Ambassador of Jansport Indonesia! That was a very pleasing information I have ever received since the other applicants also have very strong potentials.

However! Back to the topic, I recently visited a new coffee shop near Menteng which was just opened around two months ago. As I step my foot in the entrance, I completely love the vintage ambience it has there. Especially the outside ambience with a lot of grasses and plants where you could take best picture of yours for Instagram matters, perhaps?

Haha! Got you!

Because that’s what I always do anyway. I decided to wear my super casual and effortless outfit since I was basically being kidnapped with my two guy friends. To make it easier, I also started to make a Look Book video to please your eyes gracefully.

I hope you guys love the look book video! Because if you do, I think I will make another one. I took the video in the outside of the coffee shop, if you would like to see how the inside looks like. I already prepared one video especially for you of course!

Interested to come? Because I would like to come again for work! This place is really suitable for anyone who would love to spend their time for coffee and work and lifestyle’s sake I suppose. Where is your favorite coffee shop? And have you ever been here before? Share what you think through the comment below and let’s have a conversation! ❤

Before everything else, I guess I will start making two contents for every weekend since I think one post per week is too less to savor for you. Therefore, the blog-post schedule will be set every Saturday and Sunday at 11 AM (UTC+7).

VLOG | Afternoon Coffee at Giyanti Coffee Jakarta

I am so glad that I finally reached to the point where I don’t need to get overthink about papers anymore, yes, semester break is coming already!

This time as a part of Beatitude section, I will now be adding more content with vlog named Her Journal. This week’s vlog is Afternoon Coffee which took place in Giyanti Coffee Jakarta. Kindly watch the video below,

I hope you enjoyed the video as much as I did when making it😋 I really love the ambience in that coffee shop near Menteng because they really have perfect lighting for pictures and the air itself is not that hot though Jakarta’s weather has always been a mess with its pollution.

I ordered for the cold latte and hot latte at the same time which are the best companion for afternoon coffee.

Here is the way to the entrance as you have seen on the vlog. Very rustic, very authentic.

For the outfit itself, actually I just came from Jakarta City Hall for the opening ceremony of Jakarta Model United Nations 2017. Thus my outfit seemed quiet formal yet I tried to combine it as casual as possible. For the shirt inside, I got it from Cotton Ink whilst the leather outer from Zara.

For the patterned trouser, I got it from The Executive. I have always loved this trouser because patterned bottom always elevates the way someone’s dresses. For the mini leather bag, I got it from Pedro. Watch from Fossil and the pointed black flat shoes from Mango.

So, that’s all I got for this weekend. A vlog and a fashion inspiration which I hope could be the preference of you weekend. What do you guys think? Ever been to Giyanti or probably ever been to MUN simulation? Share what you think below and have a great weekend! 🙂

I combined the outfit with a little touch of glowing goldy color. I have always loved golden colors since it gives a little touch of luxury in any outfit that you wear. I am wearing a golden sling bag from Charles and Keith, watch by Fossil, and a triplet stone ring from New Look.

Whereas for in the bottom part, I am wearing a green army petite pants from New Look and flat shoes from Mango.

Honestly, you can rock anything that you have in your wardrobe with floral bomber jacket. I dare to say it is a must item because it truly upgrades your outfit to the next level, no matter how effortless you want your outfit to be, it will still look perfect in no time.

Sunday Outing with Pastel Culotte

Glad to be back on blogging again! I’m pretty sure you guys must be getting bored with the same old reason I always give.

Hectic schedule.

Sorry I had to mention it again but this is utterly something that I can’t get rid of. However, I have something new for you guys!

In the first week of college, I went to some places with my sister to spend the weekend. And also, looking for new contents for vlog!

Let’s go straight to the content, so I decided to wear pastel culotte that I found in some bazaar I attended when holiday. There are varies and I love each of them.

For the white outerwear, I got it from New Look whilst the black sweater inside, I got it somewhere in Central.


Culottes are best paired with pastel high heels! I got these light pink high heels from Nine West and a watch from Alba.

Culottes have been a hype these days. There are the short ones and even the long ones like I am wearing. However, culottes may also be paired with sneakers. It feels really comfy and honestly, it makes you look slimmer. So, who doesn’t love culottes?

Tell me what’s your favorite pair with culottes on the comment below. I’d love to hear what you say 🙂

How To Wear Heels With Casual Tops

Having high heels in the closet but not confident enough to wear them because afraid of looking too much?

If you have this anxiety then you are on the right page!

You might have seen a lot of OOTD ideas on fashion blogs to dress casually with heels. Well this time, I have another ideas to rock your heels in casual outfits without being afraid of looking too much which probably will inspire you more! 🙂


This is my favorite casual outfit when it’s combined with heels. I believe the top we are wearing in an outfit is the most important thing since it also represents who we are. I have the striped top by et cetera, bag by Kate Spade New York, black heels by Pull & Bear, silver watch for female by Alba, and black cat eye wear by Le Specs. 

Besides that, I also have sweater combined with high heels! since I’m a sweatshirt type of person but not most of the time. I’ve got sweater by Top Shop, green pastel bag by Moeibag, black heels by Nine West, watch and wallet by Fossil, and glasses by Owl.

As you have seen in the picture, there is a green pastel tote bag. Tote bag, sweater, then heels?! Yes. Wearing heels is the most powerful thing to increase the level of women’s fanciness to me. Therefore, instead of wearing sweatshirt with sneakers like usual, why not try high heels?

So, I think that’s all for two outfit ideas that may bring you inspiration to wear heels casually. Which one is your favorite outfit? Or maybe if you have another ideas regarding to wear heels casually, you may share your thoughts in the comment below. Look forward to hear more from you, have a great day! 🙂

New Year’s Tropical Eve Party at Ocha & Bella

Happy New Year 2017!

I hope you guys had a great year in 2016 and I wish you tons of luck for the next 12 months. Cheers for bright future!!

It’s been a while I had not posted a blog-post since decades perhaps and I am truly sorry for that since college has been hitting me really hard lately. But it’s now 2017! Forget about the past because you now have a blank paper to write on with new things. Well, this time before welcoming 2017, I would like to share some little experience I had in the last two hours of 2016.

_________

I had a chance to attend the Tropical New Year BBQ Party at the restaurant of Morissey Hotel, Ocha & Bella, accompanied by my sister as usual. The ambience was very Hawaiian since all the staffs were wearing floral shirts and casual short pants. Whereas I decided to look more different than the others, black and white outfit as usual.

I wore knit dress from Mango, followed by black trouser by Suite Blanco. And for the headscarf and accessories from The Executive. Last but not least, sling bag and high heels are from Charles and Keith.

The party went really fun until my sister’s coupon number was called and happened to receive the lucky draw. She won a dine-in voucher worth for 500 IDR. Later after that, my coupon number was called too. I didn’t even notice what gift I was actually receiving but when I came up to the stage, they handed me a bottle of white wine as a gift. If only I could drink, I might decide to open table for all the attendants here.

We savored the tropical party until the clock pointed at 12. Everyone stood up, blew the trumpets loudly and kissed each other. Very romantic for those who brought their partner. Very romantic.

So, that’s how I spent the new year’s eve of 2017. Everyone was outside enjoying the fireworks, hoping for magnificent moments to happen in 2017. I hope everyone had so much fun in the new year’s eve. Once again, happy new year 2017! 🙂

Celebration of “Fall in New York” by Kate Spade New York

This Wednesday, I was invited to attend the Fall Collection Preview 2016 by Kate Spade New York at Plaza Senayan, Indonesia. The evening of styling, shopping and celebration of Fall in the store of Kate Spade NY was really exciting and they really hit the nail in the head!

As I was about to enter the entrance of the store, I was warmly welcomed by Stephanie. She gave me two tickets for photo booth since I was being accompanied by a friend of mine. After I had entered the store, I looked around and saw many of fashion bloggers taking pictures, videos and even doing transactions already since they couldn’t even wait any longer to make their first purchase of Kate Spade’s Fall collection.

Truthfully, their collection never changed to me. Kate Spade NY has their own designs in each of their collection, therefore, no matter how many seasons on earth, they are still being Kate Spade NY with their colorful, bright and sophisticated products.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

This section is my favorite so far since I love monochrome too much. My friends and I also didn’t miss the photo booth session. The background of Broadway mini stage gave a little scenery of Fall in New York.

Since I don’t want to miss the moment of Kate Spade’s Fall Celebration, I wore one of their bag collections and it has become my favorite one. I really enjoyed the evening with all fine people that are gathered in a store of Kate Spade NY at Plaza Senayan. Looking forward to their new collection and thanks for the invitation, Kate Spade!

Casual Day Outfit

In this weekend’s blogpost, I would like to share how I rock outerwear (again). Perhaps, I have shared about how I rock my no-sleeve outerwear but this one is actually one of my favorite outfits which also suit for college or casual day out!

                                     

To me, outerwear is a piece of clothing that could embellish the casualty of my outfit. Imagine a girl wears a white shirt and jeans only, but when she puts an any kind of outerwear, her style has somehow been improved. And that’s why I am truly fond of this piece of clothing.

So, I went for lunch with friends last week. I had no idea what to wear since I didn’t have many clothes in my luggage. I kept searching and thinking about what I should wear that day. I only found a loose black tank top, loose black trouser and a knit brown outerwear. Since that discovery, I matched them into one outfit.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

It was the outfit that I hardly kept on thinking since the remaining clothes that I had was far from many. The loose black tank top and trouser looks like in the same piece, doesn’t it? I only needed to tucked the loose black tank top in the trouser and an-almost-look-alike-jumpsuit is done.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

The combination of tank top and trouser are from Cotton On (tank-top) and Colorbox (trouser). The knit outerwear that I am wearing is from H&M and the flat-shoes that I am fond of is by mango. Because I was a little bored with sling bags, I decided to wear pouch bag that I got somewhere in Penang, Malaysia. For the accessories, I only wore a watch by Alba and those cuty-tiny bracelets that you could get for 1$ – 3$ each at Cotton On.

That’s how my discovery went by when I was running out of clothes in luggage, I hope this blog-post is inspiring enough for your inspiration in dressing up. Have a great weekend! 🙂

Afternoon in La Couleur Verte

Green is the color between blue and yellow.
And I am a creature between the grown leaves on the wall and the paving block.

In this weekend’s blog-post, I wanted to share how I usually create my own hijab style.

                                             

People might call me with an ‘outer-person’. Because that’s how I rock my style since I have decided to wear hijab. It has been a year to me for wearing hijab where all of my skins are covered up with cloth. The reason why I like wearing outerwear (ex: jackets, sweaters, hoodies, blazers, coats, etc) because I think a woman can wear anything they want as long as the clothes they wear don’t really fit their shape of body. Although some people say that wearing outerwear is complicated and uncomfy but to me, it describes me.

P stands for preferential because you are special.

In this picture, it might look like I am wearing a jumpsuit but actually not. It is a separated outfit where I’m wearing long black top by The Executive and a long loose trouser by Colorbox. And for the glasses, I am wearing Le Specs. It is currently my favorite one.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

And for the outer, I am wearing white outerwear by New Look. And for the flat-shoes by Mango.

That’s all for today’s blog-post! I hope my look for this weekend could inspire your style in wearing hijab. I am an outer-person, what about you? 🙂

After Class With Fellas

Been living in a new circumstance for almost a month is totally exciting. Meeting new people, learning about new things, trying to adapt with new zone and any other stuff I’ve never done before. A few days ago, my friends and I were going live on periscope after class. The schedule was quite tiring but we had so much fun.

We walked around campus, took some pictures, acted like idiots because we only live once. And this is how I look like for college outfit,

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

Jeans, sneakers, backpack, tank top that could cover up my butt and outerwear are totally my thing. I like wearing backpack because I could take everything I need efficiently without thinking it will wreck my bag up.

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

Jeans that I wore by Stradivarius, black and white tank top by et cetera, blazer by Fuelworx and sneakers by converse.

Well, I’m probably the casual one and there’s my friend who tend to look more feminine. Her name is Dian.

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

I didn’t ask where she bought the outfits she was wearing but as you can see above, actually you could rock red jeans with any tops. I usually wear blue jeans and never tried to wear another color except white and crème. Her black and white stripe bag is my favorite one. Dian, may I have your bag?

Last but not least, I have one more friend I wanted to feature on this Weekly OOTD post. His name is Jaka. He’s like the most narcissistic person I’ve ever known because wherever he is, “lemme take a selfie”.

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

I neither asked what outfits he was wearing, so, pardon me, my beautiful readers. Mostly, guys like casual outfits. I often find Jaka matches his t-shirt with sweater and never forgets his Levi’s backpack. And you could also wear something bright that could catch someone’s glance like Jaka’s orange sneakers.

I’m very pleased to meet my new friends. So, don’t be afraid to meet new people. I was afraid and shy to say ‘hi’ to new people as well, moreover the people I’ve never talked to before. Then I realized saying ‘hi’ is not that hard, though Taylor Swift says “I don’t want to say hi because there’ll be another goodbye”, try to say ‘hi’ and be nice to anyone, because you’ll never know, one simple word could align you to something that could change your life forever.
