Kisses to you

Shirt: JCrew (sales going on now, use code GOSHOP)
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Zara (old, but love this pair here)
Bag: Celine 
Sunnies: Ray-Ban

Believe it or not, red (not pink) is my favorite color. However, as I scan my closet, I realize I really don't own many red pieces (though I have a drawer full of red lipsticks!). I got this red shirt on sale at J Crew a couple weeks ago, and felt like I finally filled a void. It's such a simple yet classic piece, that I know I will be able to create endless outfit pairings with it. First up, this simple combo, red shirt with a tube skirt that's got little red lipstick stain all over it. How adorable it that? I kept all other accessories muted, to ensure the little lipstick stain print pop against the red sweater. It's an outfit that make me smile :)

Hope you enjoyed this outfit pairing, and wishing you all a fabulous Tuesday!

Pop of pink

As I continue down the path to find my own sense of style, I begin to recognize an on-going patter. Comfort to me, is truly key. Comfort doesn't have to translate to being unpolished. This outfit I wore a little while back is a great example of me being me. Simple pieces, classic fit, and a splash of color create a combo that is pure comfort yet never boring. It took a while for me to be comfortable in my own skin, and it think it certainly shows in my go-to style.

Couch Potato

I actually almost forgot about this set of pictures. Turned out, being a couch potato is way more fun and flattering when there's a good photographer around. We took these pictures a little while back, and I actually didn't think the pictures would turn out nice. Then again, I've been wrong before. Sometimes the best pictures are captured during the most ordinary moments.

Wishing everyone a fabulous Tuesday!

Sometimes, there's nothing better than a very casual and comfortable outfit, with a statement bag that has sunshine written all over it. Wishing you all a very fabulous Tuesday and Happy 1st of April!

Mixing Power

Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Zara
Bag: Saint Laurent
Sunnies: Celine

During my regular 9 to 5, I typically don't get the chance to be too expressive with my styling choices. On the weekend, getting dressed tends be a whole other ball game for me. I love to use this time to dress to please whatever mood I'm in, and to test my own comfort level to see what works (and often times, what does not work as well). 

This particular outfit post captures one of those times when the pairing worked out exactly how I had envisioned in my head. Stripes and houndstooth pattern worked surprisingly well together. The similar black and white color theme helped tied the pieces together without causing too much confusion to the eyes. The cropped top acted as a separator to allow one pattern to end and before another begins. Lastly, the flattering cut of the pencil skirt kept the entire outfit on the classy side without overpowering my figure. All in all, this is definitely a mix that I plan to repeat.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and wishing you guys a fabulous Tuesday!
