Adventure For One - Madrona Marsh Preserve

A few months ago, I was in search for a mini adventure. I wanted to be one with nature and get a little workout in, so I did exactly what my generation would do...Yelp it. I somehow ended up at the Madrona Marsh Preserve. I was expecting something a little larger and more of a workout, but it was far from. Don't get me wrong, it was a cute plot of land with an information center and interactive activities. Maybe it would have been more of a sight to take in if the drought had not affected it.

Black & White Lookbook - Sister Collaboration

Meet my sister, Jamie. And yes, our names do rhyme. In fact, a little personal fact about myself is that all my siblings' names (excluding one brother) end in a "ie/y" sound.

It took some time, but I finally got her to do a collaboration with me. I wanted to present you all some styles other than my own, and knew Jamie's could provide some inspiration as well. Now, you get double the Lai fashion.

We went with this theme because everybody has black and white clothing in their closet. Basically, you can never go wrong with a black and white outfit!

Did you enjoy this collaboration? Let us know in the comments, and maybe Jamie will make another appearance on thecomelycloset.

Enjoy Lovelies!

A Very Late Happy 4th of July :)




Found a little gem hidden away at home, and this was such a perfect, spontaneous day! It was filled with paddle boating, bike riding, and just enjoying this lake. I am a proud American citizen and as you can see, we take 4th of July very, very seriously. A very late happy 4th post from my friends and I.

 


And a bonus video of all the fun stuff we did here!

A Black & White Cat



Top an outfit with a pair of ears, and you got perfection. There is something about cat ears that make me feel invincible. I love going about my day with them on, even with all the looks, it just feels right sometimes.

Like promised, another way I style the daisy DIY crop top from my previous post. It's a more fun and flirty outfit, but of course, I love to edge it up. In the images below, I threw on my thrifted long cardi to have a bit more contrast. The black against the white is definitely more up my alley, and alters the mood completely. Another great example of how one piece/accessory can change an entire look. I hope this brings you some summer outfit inspiration! <3

xoxo,
Amy

DIY: Daisy Crop Top

 

This crop top is an example of why you shouldn't always dismiss a piece because it is ill-fitting. It was given to me a few months ago by my sister whom accidentally bought the wrong size. Knowing I could potentially fix the problem and turn it into a little DIY project, I decided to take it off her hands. After confirming with her that I could cut it up, I had a bunch of ideas pop to my head. One of which, ended up being this beautiful daisy trim detail on the sides. It took me less than 5 minutes to do, and I have received many compliments thus far.
 
Since it was on the larger side, I cut off the sides to remove the excess fabric, and leave open for a cut-out effect. A dab of hot glue on each end, and WHALAA~ Now the crop top fits to perfection with a little personal touch.
 
Below is how I styled the crop top with my current favorite pair of pants from The LA Fuss. If you are loving these pants, be sure to enter my Instagram contest that features a gracious $50 gift card to their store. The giveaway ends tonight at 9PM PST, so get on it! Click here for more information.
 
Look out for my next post that will show another way I style this top. Think of it as a two-fer. :)

Don't Worry, Be Yoncé

 
The world would be a better place if we all took on the mantra "Don't Worry, Be Yoncé". Don't ya think? I am not a huge fan of Beyoncé, but no one can deny her success and badassery. She has had a long and lasting career, a beautiful family, and a big group of supporters. On the outside looking in, I definitely want to get a piece of that... or maybe just 1% of it. Staying true to myself with a hint of Beyoncé. :)
