weekend musings

1. Mismatched sandwich cremes
I was beyond elated when I came across these cookies in Whole Foods, or as Ron Swanson would call it-- Complete food. Like 95% of the population, I love Oreos. And with these half vanilla, half chocolate cookies you get the best of both worlds, Hannah Montana style. They're also made without over processed sugars and preservatives, which means they're healthier than normal Oreos. I think.

2. Madewell chambray popover shirtdress
This madewell denim shirt dress has been on my mind since I first saw it mid-December. It's 100% cotton and feels so ridiculously soft. The plaid lining is the perfect next-level kinda detail. And it actually fits me! Madewell dresses are usually way too long for me to consider, but this one hits mid thigh, just the way I want it to.

It's also pretty pricey. Even though it fits in perfectly with my buy less but buy well philosophy I'm probably still going to wait for some sort of sale. While I'm waiting, I couldn't help eying this forever 21 dress, which is actually also 100% cotton. But the wash doesn't look as natural as the madewell version, the buttons weirdly blend in, and of course it's missing that plaid lining.

3. Forever 21 accessories + shoes
Speaking of forever 21, lately they have been on point as far as accessories and shoes go. I've resisted so far but those gel pens are calling my name. Ah, 90s nostalgia.

scented gel pens, embroidered clutch, grey open toe booties, glitter flatforms, two strap sandals, black clutchpink bow, black open toe booties, espadrille flatforms 

4. Secret State of North Korea on Netflix
I admit I'm not usually one to watch documentaries because they're typicallyy snooze fest central as far as I'm concerned. But after watching The Interview over winter break, I was curious to learn more about North Korea. After skimming through numerous wiki articles, I somehow ended up watching this documentary which gave me a glance at what's happening in one of the most isolated countries in the world. The stories and clips portray heartbreaking stories told by defectors, but the documentary still leaves you with a small glimmer of hope. Overall, I'd say the film is worth the hour break from binge watching Friends.

5. Favorite Outfit
My favorite outfit of this week is hands down this one by Peony Lim.

If you're reading this, I hope you 're having a good weekend!


  1. Love this weekend musings post! Such a great compilation of so many things.
    Haha, and yes, it's from Whole Foods, so it's already healthier ;)
    Mmm, that plaid lining in the denim dress is quite lovely...hopefully it goes on sale soon!
    Doggonit, all the F21 goodies make me want to go shopping...gel pens, yess!

  5. loved that post! those cookies look cool. that shirt dress reminded me I have an outfit where I'm wearing one but I haven't posted it. I have no idea why.
    all those Forever 21 goodies were cool to browse. they remind me of the stuff H&M usually offers. haha and once again they remind me that I have a pair of open toe booties which I should definitely take out once spring comes (I've had them for like 5 years or something). oh and I remember those gel pens! AND I read some facts about North Korea.. yesterday maybe? I think they've showed some programmes/documentaries too and probably I've seen some of them.

  6. The denim dress is on point! I've been looking for similar ones and I might just cave for the Madewell one haha. And those cookies look so good :p


  7. The oreos thing, though. It's killing me to just think about them.

  8. Those oreos look amazing! I also love the f21 wishlist :)

  9. Great inspiration. That last outfit is amazing. I love Forever21. I swear half of my closet is from there just because it is so affordable. Have you tried the mint Oreos? OMG...

  10. Interesting post - i gotta say, I scour Forever 21's accessory section like a hawk!
    And I've been very interested in North Korea for a while! My parents are from South Korea but my paternal grandfather is actually a North Korean escapee from back when the communists first invaded! That documentary, was it the PBS one? That one was amazing but I also really liked the one by National Geographic. It's cool to see that more and more people are becoming interested in the country!

  11. Wow, I'm sure your grandfather had many interesting stories to share. It was the PBS one! I'm going to put the National Geographic one on my to watch list :)

  12. Yes to mint oreos! Or rather, yes to any type of oreos!

  13. I can't wait to see how you'll style them :)

  14. I confess I was also a Hannah Montana fan back in its prime days lol

  15. Exactly. Whenever I buy something from Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, I assume it's healthier. Even if it's something as unhealthy as cookies ;)

  16. Oh scented gel pens, I remember having a whole arsenal in my backpack in high school!

    pumps and push-ups

  17. That chambray dress is gorgeous! Madewell has had some really nice stuff lately and it's so hard not to window shop as I end up buying something more often than not!
