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.
