Mixing Neutrals

There’s something so chic and elegant about being able to mix neutral tones in an outfit. Neutrals are generally very easy on the eye and are often overlooked on the streets, but mashing three or more neutrals together can make the outfit a little more eye-catching and a little less ordinary. I’m not recommending a safe combos like black & grey, beige & white, etc. Instead, try beige and grey, army green and grey, and so on to see if it has the effect you want to create. By wearing more neutral shades, it quickly amps up the chic without adding too much noise. Neutrals don’t have to be boring, so go test your creativity. 🙂

Bubble Midi

See I told you, I like to feel girly once in a while too. Having indulged so long in street style, I felt like I was going out of my way for this skirt.

Humans are by nature too complicated to …

Coffee Tee & Sneaks

Black, grey, white, the essential shades in I need in my closet.  It’s the case especially for those who are into minimalism. I know it lacks vibrant touches, and may look a little dull, but a look that consists of these shades (nicely matched ones of course) is most definitely a head turner – that’s where the power of simplicity lies. This look perfectly describes I feel these days – casual,  calm, low-key, and with baggage full of thoughts. I thought this was a cute look mostly because of the coffee tee, although I actually don’t drink coffee because it does absolutely nothing for me! I always thought it’s important to have color elements in an outfit correspond to each other. An example is that I’m wearing a grey tee with white font, matched with a white skirt (the grey sneakers with white laces were just a bonus to the outfit, but not necessary). IF the font on my tee is black, then I most definitely would have worn a black bottom to go with it. Here’s more… I …
