Streetwear Looks

As I have always said, those outfits I choose in a whim are simply better than most outfits that I spend most time doing. I went recently to a few thrift stores and gathered interesting pieces that suited my current appetite for street style.

With this first look, I played with the fit and colour. Times are changing. We are seeing more colours again. Red is one of my colour to bet on next to orange. Keeping it with the trend, the relaxed look also got me hooked up. I adore the juxtaposition of the street and preppy with this. Because let’s be real, who doesn’t want to be feeling comfy and cool in an outfit.  Both pieces were thrifted. Thinking of cropping the NYC t-shirt?

There isn’t more to say.

This second look is probably my go-to outfit when I want to be lazy but still wanted to look I took some time with my outfit. Tucking in the shirt made this look more put together.  Adding an accessory like the belt and a watch can even elevate the look further. That is completely up to your mood or style. Jeans and shirt are from the thrift.

IMG_0922IMG_0923Finished the look with my ever loyal, penny loafers from ZARA. I may need to find another one like this as this is my ride or die shoes. Gearing towards dying. Lol. It’s so versatile that you can pack this on your suitcase and you won’t need to worry if it will go with any of your outfit because it not like a teen trying to fit in because it will definitely fit in! LOL. Just a quick storytime, every time I wear this shirt around, I seem to get a lot of attention. Not knowing before, Thirty Seconds to Mars, now I know! One mate even approached me, and willing to get the shirt right off my back! Crazy. Lol

I’ve Been Thinking

A lot has been coming in and out of my mind- the future, the now. But sometimes I do look back. A year already passed and I am pretty much proud of where I took off from this time last year. Definitely, better. We all went thru like a dilemma of what you really want to do with your career and the path that you want to take. Style, clothes, and looking sharp are my best interests. I have found my interest in photography as well. I want to do styling, to help people bring out their finest and to have that force to inspire others.

I hope I could take this passion into something that I could consider work. By being able to monetise my blog or looking for a job that is in line with fashion. Or maybe studying arts, fashion merchandising. I am really not quite keen on fashion designing but I want to open all the possibilities. That Teen Vogue x Parsons School of Design online course made me really think of applying but clearly I don’t have the abundance of time to enjoy and learn as of this time.

Anyhow, enough of my nonsense and onto good stuff.

The slouchy pants are on trend right now. I got inspired by YouTube Vlogger Drew Scott. He is one of my style inspiration right now. I admire his taste in style and editing videos. His videos are always on point. Whenever I get the chance to style my second favourite shoes, copper Oxford from Dr. Martens I just go with it. It is a hard shoe to style since the colour is too loud. So by taming down your colour palette like choosing muted tones or going for an all black or navy ensemble you can achieve a minimalist look.

Thank you to my photographer Roi Mendoza! I love my shots. It certainly makes my blog look legit!

I got this going in my head: I don’t work hard to reward myself. I reward myself to work hard. We need fuel to power up our dreams and we need work for that and the drive to.

Denim Darko

Literally, I just live in denim. I got all sorts of washes of denim jackets and jeans. There’s nothing really appalling about that. Many would have been on my shoes, owning a bunch of denim pieces and almost invading the very limited closet space. I don’t know there is just easiness and comforting about denim that I can’t live without.

I may be guilty for being a repeat offender but I won’t think twice doing it again.  My style isn’t what you can call cutting edge, out there but I just want to look myself and just wear what I want. It’s not really hard to be yourself. People just overrate things and try to keep up with everyone else when literally you don’t even have to. With enough inspiration and imagination, nothing can be made impossible.

If you haven’t heard of DEPOP already, it is an online retail app where everyone can resell swap items all over the globe. This is where I got my true blue ASOS denim jeans.

Shoe toast with my bestie Jenna! Also had a chance to break in my Oxford Timbs. #Shoegame

Obviously, there’s a denim on denim crime in here. This was a in a whim choice. I didn’t put too much time thinking what to wear. Give yourself a break. Be simple. Be comfy.

We all had a blast! With Roi and Jenna by the Yarra River.

Finding time to do what you love outside your day job makes you stay sane and enjoy your life more. So I always tell myself not to give up blogging or staying stylish amidst a packed schedule at work. I really enjoy doing this. It gives me that drive and excitement to live.
