Look at that sushi t-shirt!? Isn’t it super cute and totally made for me? I’m a huge sushi/ Japanese cuisine lover and if you take a scroll through my Instagram feed, you won’t be surprised to see many snaps of sushi lunches and dinners that I had enjoyed way too often. Not good on the sodium side, but who cares when the food is out of this world delicious and somehow suits my tastebuds perfectly.

When I saw this t-shirt at Zara I just needed to have it. My daughter found it super amusing and cool since she’s a practically “mini Japanese” woman herself. She even has her own Hello Kitty chopsticks which she uses like a pro and waiters can never believe that a small human like her has mastered eating with chopsticks and is into sushi as much as her parents. 🙂

Thanks to an amazing weather here in LA, I have decided to “break out” my new sandals which I got back in January on my trip in Zagreb at great Maria concept store ( def. check it out if you visit Zagreb, Croatia ). They’re simple, with silver mini studs but still great pair of flats for Spring/ Summer and are easy to pair with pretty much any outfit.

How was your weekend my dear readers? I’ve met with friends, tested out very hyped about Connie and Ted’s restaurant, went to my favourite mini Farmer’s Market on Merlose Place and shopped a bit more for home decor. The apartment is coming along so nicely that I can’t wait to show it to you once it’s ready! 🙂

I’m now off to bed since it’s getting quite late, so good night to my US based readers and to my European readers I’d like to wish a good morning and have a great Monday!

I’m wearing: Sandals – Saint Laurent, Bag – Chanel, Tee & skirt – Zara, Bracelet – Marc by Marc Jacobs, Earrings – HOH1960
