Last week, we had a chance to visit Corona del Mar beach in California. If you are in Los Angeles area, you should visit this beach. The beach is located about 50 miles south of LA and 4 miles west of John Wayne Airport. It’s one of California’s most romantic beach views and it’s a stunning place for wedding photos and romantic proposals. Corona del Mar (Spanish for Crown of the Sea) is also a great family beach. It’s clean and you really feel that the beach is yours. I love the nice big rocks/mini rock-hills that almost seem to decorate the edges of the shore. The kids climb on these rock-hills and have fun to run on those lower rocks to look at the crabs. I noticed that people of all ages feel very comfortable here. You see the seniors all decked out, reading their books. You see the cutest youth in groups, girls over here, boys over there, and older groups play volleyball, walking with their dogs…The beach offers the relaxed atmosphere, a great place for a picnic. Parking is free and very close to the shore, there is no long trips to your car to haul your stuff around.

Kids love to play with sand.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!! xo…Hanh
I styled these Miu Miu bloomers before
with a nude polka dot top, but this time I wanted to style it with a solid bright color; neon pink. I got this Jean Paul Gaultier turtleneck top from Open Ceremony in Soho during NYFW. For some reason lately, I’m into vivid colors. This makes the fall/winter so different from the past; a mix feeling of spring
Maybe the way bloomers are designed makes me think they could be too young for me. However, I fell in love with these at first sight at the Miu Miu boutique months ago, so I made it work for me by wearing tights/pantyhose to reveal less skin (although bloomers and shorts are the same idea). What do you think?
After I got my kitty cat face-red velvet Charlotte Olympia wedges during my stay in NYC for New York fashion week, but because they’re light, comfy and give me height, I searched for another pair. When this pair was just on Net-a-Porter, I couldn’t resist them.
Thank you everyone for visiting and have a fabulous weekend! xo…Hanh
Weeks ago, I got this postcard in my email from my sweet friend, Nathalie, and I planned not to post until Chinese New Year; but, I couldn’t resist posting it and can’t wait to share. This is the cutest postcard ever!! It’s so sweet of her to do this collage. Thank you Nathalie!
Nathelie is a jewelry designer and works along with her husband, Fernard, as a team for their own jewelry line, Hanna Bernhard. They live in Paris and their work is amazing, one of a kind. Most of the pieces that I’ve collected from their line have an Oriental theme which I love. If you’re one of my long time readers, you’ve probably already read my old posts about them. Anyway, check out their blog
to learn more about their work if you wish. And here is the postcard.
Below are the pictures which she used for the collage.
Wearing: Hanna Bernhard Chinese dragon and Japanese lucky cat necklaces.
Thank you everyone for reading and wish you a wonderful weekend! xo…Hanh
