No, just two ladies with equally great minds. The lovely and down-to-earth Grasie Mercedes featured me in her latest “Style Me Crush" and while we planned to style ourselves in summer maxi dresses, we totally surprised each other in the turquoise palette. Check out what Grasie’s wearing on her blog!

Almost There


Birkenstocks and Vans are my daily sole saviors. And I don’t know why I can’t wear jeans without belting it. But like sands through an hourglass, so goes the days of my life. 

Missguided top. Paige jeans. Vans shoes.

Only a couple of days left before a whirlwind of traveling goes from paper to reality and as thrilled as I am for what’s going to be a most memorable experience, I’ll admit I’m equally daunted by endless days and 4-hour nights - I’m doubling the vitamin C and green tea this month, because there’s no way I’ll let a cold or exhaustion interfere with my bucket list. Briiing. it. on.

Golden Light


Summer is just getting started.

Lovers + Friends dress. Chloe + Isabel earrings. BC wedges. Dogeared necklace.


I know I had just wished for Fall, but forgive my momentary lapse of judgement. My summer of travels that I’ve been exhaustingly planning is finally about to kick off!

This past weekend I visited my best friends in the Bay Area and it was truly the best and most special girls weekend ever. Maybe because we’re just a tad more mature, or maybe it’s because I found my ride or die soulmates, our girl’s trip consisted of a movie night in (with champagne), a wine tasting fair, a BBQ pool party (spell mimosas and bloody marys), and only one night out that happened spontaneously. The scene, the clubs, the full day itineraries are no longer any significance to the joy of spending time together and making lasting memories when we are all so far apart. Leaving them made me sad, but incredibly grateful and happy for the memories and bonds we continue to build.

In about a week, I’ll be jetting to Vegas as an official blogger for WWDMAGIC, where I’ll be walking the floor and speaking on panels covering social media, trends, and the future of the industry. I love weekday Vegas trips, where buffets and low-key bars are on my nightly itinerary. Come say hi!

Stephanie Liu of Honey & Silk wearing LAST NIGHT, Left On Houston, and Chinese Laundry

Dare I say I’m sort of, kind of, teensy weensy bit longing for the cooler nights of Fall?

LAST NIGHT dress. Left on Houston sweater (coming soon!). Dogeared necklace. Doloris Petunia earrings. Daniel Wellington watch. Chinese Laundry shoes.

Last night was just a taste of it as the dog nights of summer gave way to a breezier dusk and it was perfectly appropriate to cuddle up in this thick, half-sleeve knit from Left on Houston. The jewel tone and luxurious shape make this cardigan a suitable throw over a jeans and tee or a dressy, out-on-the-town look. Emerald and pale pink are one of my favorite color combinations because of its fairytale meadow sentiment and when I got this LAST NIGHT dress in, I immediately envisioned this outfit and made it a reality for a nice mid-week dinner.

P.S. if you love my Daniel Wellington watch, you can take 15% off any watch with code “honeynsilk” until August 15th :)

For Love & Lemons top. d.Ra skirt. Dr. Scholl’s shoes. Chloe + Isabel earrings. Alex and Ani bracelet. Dogeared necklace.

When the sun decided to come out this week after a strange yet welcoming weekend of overcast and rain, I remixed my white uniform with embroidered gauze and a smooth barely-there top. I’ve stayed away from skirts for the majority of the year, because if it’s already going to be half a dress, why not go all the way? But this d.Ra skirt has done me in.

Show Me Your Mumu


My newest brand obsession totally makes you wake up like that.



I recently discovered the adventurous fairytale brand, Show Me Your Mumu, during a fun, low-key gathering at Revolve Clothing's Malibu Beach House. It was an intimate affair where I was lucky to have learned about the brand from the graceful, talented (and smart!) designers themselves, Cammy and Cologne. While still a fairly young brand, their flattering and ultra comfortable mumus have been making waves from inside their NYC apartment to the big league retailers today like our favorite Revolve Clothing. As I was perusing their colorful collection, they showed me this dreamy palm-printed tunic that carried a luscious bounce and flowed like a feather. It was instant love and an instant craving to wear this piece day and night all summer long, straight out of bed to a cat nap on the beach. The best part is that their pieces can travel with me, forever wrinkle-free. And that’s every reason to pack only their entire collection for your next trip to Santorini or Santa Barbara.

Was it also an amazing coincidence that these two ladies also hailed from my alma mater, UC Berkeley? No, it must’ve been fate. It’s not everyday I meet a Cal bear in my line of work. Go sartorially-talented Bears!

Anaheim Packing District

These days, I can’t scroll on Instagram without seeing snapshots of the Anaheim Packing District, a hot new culinary market house finally for us Orange County-lites.

Michael Stars tank. Paige shorts. Sicky sunglasses. Kelsi Dagger heels. Patricia Nash backpack. House of Harlow necklace.

This historical industrial building has been reinvigorated with exotic air plants and vintage Americana decor. Communal tables and cozy lounges are sprinkled all over, surrounded by an incredible mix of food artisans and endless Pinterest-worthy vignettes. The crowds on a Sunday evening were insane and lines at each of the vendors were a bit rough - the only establishment without a wait was the fully stocked Hammer Bar overlooking the entire atrium. No complaints from me. 

On another note, I’m f*cking obsessed with my new Sicky sunglasses. The tacit cool amber and sleek Italian acetate make this pair a luxe topper to an uncomplicated tank and shorts look, compelled by the sultry days of summer. This Malibu-based brand is an awesome new discovery that even Paps loves.
