Happy Friday Everyone! Today I bring you one of my favorite blouses of all time. This beautiful white ribbon tie lace top is as gorgeous in person as it is in the pictures. It is such a statement piece that it can hold it’s own when pairing it with casual jeans like I have in my pictures. If you’re wondering where I am, we took these photos around Old Town Pasadena that day. There are so many cute restaurants and stores that you can literally spend all day and night there.

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I forgot to mention that my previous post was my last post for the Singapore series. I’m still going to do an overall guide of Singapore, but that’ll be a little later.

On our last night in Singapore, Mother Nature gave us the most beautiful blue skies and an amazing golden sunset. The weather was just right where it was hot during the day, but it steadily stayed warm throughout the night.
