Pretty in Pink and Pearls

If you're in search for yummy Chinese food, Monterey Park is the way to go. You almost can't go wrong with any of the places there. Since the city is saturated with Chinese restaurants, the portions are overwhelming and the prices are super competitive and low. No can typically feed a family of 4 for $50 or less and still leave with leftovers! Anyway, my family and I drove all the way there to get our grub on at this dim sum place and we all left extremely content. When we were on our way to our next destination, we passed by this kind of cute and kind of awkward fountain. I figured I'd snap some shots and post the outfit on the blog.

My outfit was put together with this pink 'Cecelia Kimono' from For Love & Lemons in mind. It's such a girlie girl piece of clothing with the bow details on the sleeves, the sweet pale pink color, the whimsical flowy fabric, and the asymmetrical hemline. I paired the long kimono with some high-waisted short shorts and a crop top to balance out the whole outfit. It's really all about playing with proportions to create the illusion of longer legs. Well I hope you guys enjoy the post.
