Tweed, Quilted and Suede

Going to Central Park meant not overdressing. Ok, perhaps I was still overdressed but question is, when am I not? The most casual outfit that I packed was composed of a cotton t-shirt and shorts.

Lady-like in Public Transit

New York is a fashion capital and I was not going to waste my chance of pretending I belonged. I achieved this lady-like look by wearing a floral dress with lace and pearl embellishments. Since the dress is already very busy, I chose simple, yet elegant accessories. To juxtapose the softness of the dress, I paired it with a leather satchel, watch and shoes.

Indulging in Summer

The scorching weather called for minimal fabric and indulgence in the last month of summer by wearing classic white with orange and gold accents. To play with lengths, I wore my cross-body bag that sits longer than my romper to elongate my height by a tad bit.

How am I suppose to call my bae now? I kid myself xD

I usually opt out from buying backless pieces because the cut is usually too low, but when I found this a year ago (on sale too) and tried it on, the amount of exposure maintained class without losing the element of interesting.

Dainty with an Edge

I woke up this morning with the intention to go for the long overdue run. I have been awfully busy with school and work that my exercise routine has recently been on hold. So, I went for a jog and missed the bus, leaving me to have a good excuse to dress up 😛

One of my favourite things to do when styling is juxtaposing. Today, I paired dainty and edgy pieces together to create an ‘all-American’ look.

The delicate and sheer material of my button down tucked into the heavy, corduroy material of my shorts creates contrast and balance that attracts interest. To add a little more personality into my outfit, I accessorized with a vibrant head wrap and matching lip colour to tie it all together. Dainty pieces such as my watch and bracelet finished off the outfit.
