Spring in Bloom

H&M dress (also love this one and this one) | J.Crew shoes c/o | Rebecca Minkoff 'Hudson Mini Moto' crossbody | Warby Parker 'Reilly' sunnies c/o | Michael Kors 'Jet Set' watch

Every Spring/Summer I stumble upon one piece of clothing that ends up being my go-to for the season and is worn on constant repeat. This is certainly going to be that outfit for me this year, and for $30 it sure is a steal for how many times I anticipate wearing it!

Spring Chill

Garnet Hill sweater c/o | J.Crew denim | J.Crew shoes c/o | Zara city bag (also love this one) | Warby Parker sunglasses c/o | J.Crew necklace

Hi friends! After some time away from the blogging world, I have returned for a brief moment. I mentioned a few posts back that I started a new job earlier this year and since then I have focused all my energy towards doing my best in that role. I have loved every minute of it, so much that it doesn't even feel like work. However, I would come home pretty exhausted, especially after commuting in the mess of a winter that we had this year in Boston. The awful weather had me feeling a little uninspired, which initiated this necessary hiatus.

Don't be fooled by these photos, there is not that much snow left on the ground here in Boston. These pictures were taken many weeks back before the first day of Spring. This outfit was actually worn on a super rare but perfect late winter day when the temperature was bearable. The sunshine was giving off just enough warmth to keep me comfy in only my lightweight cashmere sweater, and since my feet hadn't been exposed to sunlight all winter it was the perfect time to break-in my new loafer flats for venturing around the city. These flats have made a fresh, clean statement with all my outfits so far. They're never put away in my closet for longer than a few days.

I hope to make a steady return back here to LoSo Fancy and share all the things that inspire me to dress happy for Spring!

Thanks for checking-in after a long break. Even when I'm not here, you can find me on my Instagram!

Have a great weekend!

Good Luck Charm

J.Crew coat | Zara shirt and jeans | Madewell boots | Rebecca Minkoff bag c/o Saks Fifth Ave | H&M hat | ASOS scarf | necklace via T.J.Maxx

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this enough before, but elephants are one of my favorite animals alongside giraffes. One of my dream vacations is to go on a South African safari and get as close as possible to photographing an epic moment of both animals in their element. In my Cambodian culture, elephants are a symbol of good luck, which is just another reason why I love them. When I first went to visit Cambodia, I was only 10 years old but I remember riding on the back of an elephant as it took us halfway up a mountain (we walked the rest of the way) to take in a view of the sunset from the very top; it was the highlight of my stay there.

Obviously due to my obsession, I couldn't say no to owning this blouse when I spotted it. I started calling it my lucky shirt, but here's how I know for a fact that it is: I wore it while watching The Super Bowl the other day (growing up in New England I am without a doubt a Patriots fan) and the game ended with a win in our favor. Therefore, I'm convinced this is certainly my good luck charm. Convinced.

LoSo Fancy Turns 2!

H&M jacket | Piperlime dress | J.Crew tights | Steve Madden pumps c/o Piperlime | Kate Spade clutch | necklace via T.J.Maxx

Hi there! I'm sorry it's been a while as life has been so crazy since you last heard from me, but it's been the good kind of crazy! I thought there's no better time to make a comeback than on the date of LoSo Fancy's 2nd birthday. I can't believe how quickly time has flown by since first launching this baby blog of mine. LoSo Fancy is something I started as a digital portfolio to help me find my dream job, and just last month that dream called me up with an offer I couldn't refuse.

Back in early December I started my new role as a Digital Designer/Art Director for T.J.Maxx social media. Every aspect of this job is everything I've wanted to do since deciding three short years ago to put a career in Nursing in my past and instead pursue my passion in the fashion industry. You know that saying "Do what you love and you'll never work another day in your life"? Well, I always wondered if I'd find a career that would make me feel that way and I can honestly say I've been experiencing that feeling everyday since the start of this job. It's all still surreal to me and it's just the beginning. 

However, with any accomplishment it's important to never forget the "why" and the "how".
Why did I start this?
To gain an online presence in the blogosphere, get my foot in the door to the fashion industry, creatively challenge my personal style, and to inspire others to do the same.
How did I get here?
Because of you!
Because of my family who believed in me.
Because of the friends who supported me.
Because of the fellow bloggers I met along the way who have inspired me, some of which who have become my best friends.
And because of the followers who have continued to come back just to say hello and see what's new.
I have all of you to thank.

I am genuinely grateful for the support I've received these past two years and I want to end with this thought:
Life is too short; spend it doing something that fulfills you and can be meaningful to you and others. Follow your heart and you will discover your passion. Find something that gets you jumping out of bed in the morning and has you looking forward to Mondays. Any dream is possible if you just keep chasing it. Find the determination to jump over the obstacles, look for alternate paths to get passed the road blocks, and know that any downfall is a blessing in disguise. Remember to stay humble, be kind to others along the way, and always be thankful.

And as always, thanks so much for reading and for all of your kind words, it means the world.

The Nutcracker Giveaway {Closed}

Banana Republic sweater Topshop skirt (similar) | ASOS clutch | J.Crew metallic heels | Kendra Scott ring c/o | Michael Kors watch | Ally + Zoe earrings

A couple weekends ago I had the pleasure of attending my first performance of The Nutcracker. That's right, first performance ever. Can you believe I've never seen it before?! It was just as enchanting as everyone told me it would be and what made it even more special was getting a chance to meet a couple of the ballerinas and take a tour backstage after the show. I truly felt the magic of the season and certainly won't lie that it made me as giddy as a kid in a candy store.

It only felt right to wear a feminine floral skirt for the evening (I misplaced my tutu ;), but it sure didn't match up to the beautiful ballerinas dressed in over 2,000 yards of net and tulle with 200,000 jewels sewn in place. Don't believe me? Well you can see for yourself! Thanks to The Boston Ballet, I'm giving away two free tickets to a performance of The Nutcracker this Thursday, December 18th at 7:30pm at the Boston Opera House. Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win! Hurry though, the contest will end in 48 hours and I'll contact the winner shortly afterwards.

Follow the @bostonballet and @losofancy on Instagram as an entry into the contest. Contest open to Massachusetts Residents only.
