Carmel by the sea and beyond!


Finally we vanquished the reverting of day and night but still woke up around 6 AM in the morning. That's not too bad at all since we headed down to Carmel beach as early as 8 AM to avoid the holiday traffic. 

 Clean and purity.

Ignorant of me that I never saw a "brownish-ivory" sea lion before!!  :P 

However, the weather is either unexpectedly colder or we just are not adjusted ourselves back to the temperature from the much warmth Asia, I felt rather chill by the ocean.  I put on all the clothes I can possibly find in the car but that doesn't seem to warm me up at all.  That doesn't matter!! Luckily, I was able to indulging myself with the ocean view and imaging myself as a pretty "jelly fish"!!! lol

The Minnetonka boot is a great choice when I want to walk in the sand while keeping my feet tidy at the same time!! No sand, no fuss!!

My yesterday's outfit. 

1. Top:

  • free people cami. 
  • blue crochet vest
  • Pink distressed/shredded lace hooded jacket
  • J Crew big collar trench coat

2. Bottom:
generic jeans shorts
3. Accessory: 

  • Karen Walker Gee Gee milky pink sunglasses
  • Louis Vuitton hoop earrings w/ dangled charms

4. Shoes:
Minnetonka tassel brown boots 

Somehow the J Crew big collar trench made me look like that big head of jelly


I think kids and I enjoyed the beach more than DH does......this is the proof!!  He took pictures of me and kept jackets for us...while we don't need them!! hahahaha....  He is so not a fashionable dude here!!

I love the pearly, fine sand very much except the fishy smell of Algae. :P

We had fun at the beach/Carmel by the sea and enjoyed a nice sunny afternoon lunch at its downtown on Sunday.

LE St. Tropez restaurant is a southern French style of cuisine and they have books "Tin Tin" for kids w/ kids' menu at back of the book. My kids love reading stories about Tin Tin and all of a sudden, Southern France is no longer that indifferent to them!! ^^

 Artichoke packed high in anti-oxident, so eat it up,!!!

I love this intricate print on this cardigan.... another wardrobe much-have all year round! 

Guess what else I found in Carmel?!! 

Pretty jewel-embellished and embroidery boots made from Turkey! They made out of leather or embroidery clothes which they mainly use on garment and purse. They first die the cloth w/o foreseeing the final result of the die, and then they wrap the cloth and glue them onto the leather of boots. The cloth is one of a kind and so do those boots. 






They definitely are eye-catching boots and guess which pair I bought!!? @@

Have a good extra holiday!!

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
