The Plaid Blazer Trend You'll Love This Fall | Tea Cups & Tulips

Plaid is everywhere and adding a plaid blazer is probably the easiest way to incorporate plaid into your fall closet. It's one of the most popular patterns this fall. Also, it's a classic, preppy look that anyone can easily pull off. I will throw on a plaid blazer when I'm wearing jeans and a tee and it instantly

Fall Hat Guide | Tea Cups & Tulips

Okay, let's talk hats. I created a fall hat guide today because I feel like hats are the key accessory this season. They are stylish and elevate any look. When it comes to purchasing hats, I go for a neutral color. Surprise! Not exactly, I've talked about neutrals on the blog before and you guys know that I'm a huge

10 Wardrobe Essentials You Need For Fall | Tea Cups & Tulips

When it comes to wardrobe essentials, I rely on a few basic items. Ten items to be specific. It's just what works for me. However, it is not an exact number. You might find that you need only 5 things, or 12. One of the things I need to have in my closet at all times is a white tee. But you might find a black one more

Blue Cotton Shirt | Tea Cups & Tulips

When it comes to formal shirts the first color I think of is blue. While navy is a neutral color and it is an excellent alternative to black, other shades of blue can feel a little more casual. This light blue cotton shirt is precisely that. It has this laid-back look and feels to it. A lighter shade of blue a lot

Stripe Knot Tee in Black And White | Tea Cups & Tulips

This summer I've been wearing mostly tees. Tees and jeans, tees and skirts, tees and shorts. Maybe a dress here and there. Overall my style has been all about comfort. I've had this stripe knot tee for about a month and I've already worn it so many times. Definitely one of my favorites right now. The fabric is super

Casual Midi Dress With Pockets | Tea Cups & Tulips

So it's the end of the summer and I'm kind of bummed I didn't find this casual midi dress a bit earlier. I mean, it even has pockets. If that's not a plus, I don't know what is. Obviously, the first thing that grabbed me was the color. I've been really into white lately - white loafers, skirts, dresses, tops.

The Little White Dress | Tea Cups & Tulips

The little white dress is as much of a staple piece as is the little black dress. A few things to consider before buying one.

Favorite Yellow Dresses This Summer | Tea Cups & Tulips

Happy Friday everyone! Do you have any plans for the weekend? The weather has been extremely hot here in Riverside. So hot that I avoid going out during the day unless I have to. While the kids don't mind the heat, I can't spend more than 10 minutes outdoor when it's over 100 degrees. So I'm trying to come up with fun

Dress Up Your Jeans With A Pair of Heels | Tea Cups & Tulips

How was your weekend? On Saturday, we went with friends to Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula. I found out about it after researching online for family-friendly wineries. I wanted a place where the kids can play, and we can have a drink and chat with our friends. There was a small playground in the garden and tables all

Best Classic White Tee Under $20 | Tea Cups & Tulips

A classic white tee is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing I own. It's such a simple item that you can wear a million different ways. First of all, I love a white tee because white is such a crisp and fresh color. It brightens up every outfit, and it looks amazing with anything denim. A white t-shirt and

Cropped Pants and Polka Dot Shirt | Tea Cups & Tulips

For the longest time, I didn't want to buy a pair of cropped pants. I thought they make me look short. Funny, right? I mean how short they can make me look, I'm 5'11 (180cm). Everything changed when I tried on these pants. I love how the leg pant doesn't end right above the ankle; instead, it's a bit shorter

Double Slit Maxi Skirt | Tea Cups & Tulips

I looked for a double slit maxi skirt for so long until I found this one. Everything else I found online had slits that were really high and that just seemed super impractical for my lifestyle. I've worn this particular skirt so many times. When I'm in a rush, I will just throw it on with a simple striped tee tucked

The new Trend: Summer Slides | Tea Cups & Tulips

Ever since I bought a pair of summer slides at the beginning of the year, I've been wearing them on repeat. They are really comfortable, kind of like a regular sandal but you just slide them on your feet, and you are out the door. No need to tie them up, or zip them up. Super quick and easy to put on. Quite

The Simple rule I Follow When Wearing Neutrals | Tea Cups & Tulips

I love wearing neutrals, and I'm always drawn to them when I'm shopping for something new. Not exactly sure when I made the switch, because I used to wear a lot more color back in the day. There was even a time when I would dress as colorful as a rainbow. Yep! I'm not making this up. If you want to see what I'm

Printed Skirt | Tea Cups & Tulips

I don't usually wear a lot of prints. In fact, this printed skirt is probably the only piece in my closet right now, that is not a solid color. It's just that I can rarely find a print that I like. I'm not talking about stripes or polka dots here, but more like floral prints.

When in Doubt wear a red Jumpsuit | Tea Cups & Tulips

I love a good jumpsuit, don't you? Especially, a red jumpsuit. That's a winner! Some days I just don't want to think about putting together an outfit. I want something quick, cute and chic. Okay, let's be real, I want that every day. Ha! That may be one of the reasons why I love jumpsuits so much.

Ruffles on my Mind | Tea Cups & Tulips

I have ruffles on my mind. It's been rainy these past two days and it finally feels like we are getting into that sweater weather everyone is talking about. It's about time! If I have to be honest, I really don't remember the last time it rained for two days straight in California. It rarely happens. So I'm actually

Welcome to Winter in California + Giveaway | Tea Cups & Tulips

OKAY, is it just me or does winter not exist in California? WELCOME TO WINTER IN CALIFORNIA It's December! Christmas is just a week away and I'm wearing shorts.

When I got pregnant, I was really interested to see how long I can wear my regular clothes before having to buy any maternity clothes. Honestly, I didn't want to purchase

I wore this outfit over the weekend. Have I mentioned how much I love a cute chunky beanie? Also sharing selected cozy jackets under $50.


Black and pink is such an unusual combination for me. With a few exceptions, you would rarely see me wearing pink. I do like soft and pastel pinks but I'm just not a


White shoes made a huge comeback this year. There really is no better way to elevate your look than with a pair of white flats, slip-ons or oxfords.


I'm calling this dress beachy maxi dress because it is perfect to wear on the beach or bring it on your next vacation.


It's summer and tropical prints are hot, HOT right now! And there really is no other print that says summer better than tropical prints, don't you think?
