IMG_0850 I’ve been scoping these jeans online in for awhile since it first came out. I wanted the jeans but I needed to see the item first prior to purchasing it and since I live in Malaysia it was hard for me to physically see a pair since not many places carry Rag & Bone here. During my visit back at home in Chicago I found the Miramar Jeans. I was so excited that I literally was jumping for joy when I found them at Intermix. I was hesitant at first to purchase the pair but once I tried them on I knew I had to get them. These jeans were a must have purchase for me. Rag and Bone I give you my heart for making these ridiculous comfortable jeans. Who would’ve thought of digitally printing  a pair of jeans onto a pair of sweatpants. I could literally wear these everywhere and no one would have guessed that I was wearing a pair of sweat pants on. Love Love these jeans!IMG_0858.JPG

It’s a constant battle of the climate from frigid ac to scorching hot weather here.Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger Pierre Balmain, Vita Fede, Super Hero, Zara, Jewelry, Alexander Wang, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Chicago Blog, Chicago blogger (Top: Pierre Balmain, Pullover: Adidas zip up, Skirt & Sandals: Zara, Backpack: Alexander Wang, Jewelry: Vita Fede. and random other shops, watch: Cartier Roadster)

Eco friendly, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Otaki, Otaki Clothing, Chicago Blog, Chicago bloggerI ran across Otaki Clothinig on Instagram and instantly fell in love with the brand.  The Night Out dress was a great fit for me because of how comfortable it is and it’s versatility since it can be worn during the day or at night.  Otaki clothing uses 100% certified Lenpur yarn and fabrics, which are weaved by craftsmen in Italy.  Each item is inspected for certification compliance and quality prior to putting the Otaki label on it.

Now what is Lenpur-Bamboo.  Lempur is a 100 % cellulose which is a natural fiber.  They are produced from branches from one of seven species of white pine that are grown only in China and Canada.  Products from Lempur are great because it’s what makes the fabric soft, resistance to pulling and high washing, and great for summer and winter weather because it’s able to sustain higher thermal range.

Otaki yarn fabric uses a type of Bamboo that is grown from plantations free from pesticide, pollution and fertilizer.  The natural fibers make this great product 100% biodegradable.  The benefit of using Bamboo are softer, breathable and order controlling clothes.  Bamboo fabrics are great for all weather because it draws moisture away during warm temperatures and acts as good insulator during cold winters.  Who wouldn’t want clothes that features both characteristics.

Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, ChicagobloggerCan I just say I need to go back to Bali.  I need to go back there as soon as possible please.  I’m just thankful that it’s only a 3 hour plane ride from Malaysia.  Bali definitely reminded me of Hawaii, but less commercialized or at least in the area we were staying in.  I had an amazing time exploring the island and it was great that we had a driver for the day to take us around the island and give us a tour. We initially stopped Tanah Lot Temple and let me just tell you it’s breathtaking and a big tourist stop.  The temple is one out of seven temples along the Balinese coast.  Supposedly the myth that surrounds the temple is that poisonous sea snakes guards the temple from evil spirit and intruders.  As we venture on, our guide takes us to an awesome Balinese seafood restaurant and we ate till our heart’s content.  By the end of our tours we met our driver’s cousin who happens to own a surf shop.  Hubby and I hung out with him and his friends and it was a very relaxing moment.Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger Bali, Sofia Boutique, Blog, Blogger, Korean blog, Korean blogger, fashion blog, fashion blogger, theskimplelife, Fashion, Asian blogger, Korean style, fashionblog, Chicago Blog, Chicagoblogger
