just in: the breton

A staple in every girl and guy's closet, the striped Breton shirt. Been searching for one for a long time and I always end up looking for one at Muji. But the fitting is never right (too boxy). I found this in Forever 21. I fell for this one because of the great fit:

There are many different ways to wear a Breton. For my first look, decided to keep it casual paired with a simple denim and sneakers. 

Love Olivia Palermo's take on the Breton

I also love the thoughtful button detail on the forearms.


I was wearing: Breton stripes from Forever 21, skinny jeans Mossimmo (US), Nike shoes.

I've been invited by a colleague to her wedding next month. I don't plan to buy a new outfit and instead wear an old dress that I've actually already worn to work. The trick to keep it looking fresh and more wedding appropriate is to accessorize. 

I applied the same trick to my everyday wear. 
To dress up my old favorite boyfriend tee, I added some silver bling. 

And paired with my new favorite dicker-style booties for a tough-girl touch. 

Imagine how dry and plain this look would've been without the accessories. We don't always need to have new and trendy clothing to keep our everyday looks interesting. Just make sure to invest in ~statement accessories. Forever 21 actually has very good variety of affordable accessories.

Loving these booties, btw. I don't think I've been giving them the love here in the blog as much as they deserve. These are perfect with skinny's and short skirts.

I was wearing: H&M boyfriend tee, shorts from Cotton On, Bershka dicker-style boots, accessories from Forever 21.

just in: leopard print pumps

To be honest, I've been doing more book-buying lately than shopping for new clothes and shoes (my wallet enjoyed that bit of reprieve!), but over the weekend, I dropped by Charles & Keith with Ma and while didn't have any plans to buy anything, saw this pair and instantly fell in love.
What's not to love? It's animal printed and pointy. 

Refinery 29 can hate on kitty heel as much as they want, but to me, these are a god-send when you have to spend the entire day walking to the MRT, running after my bus and sprinting to the gym. I think it's the best balance of being fashionable yet comfy without towing the lines of wearing Mommy shoes.

sporty chic...again

I did another attempt at the sporty chic trend. In my previous attempt I've paired sporty sweat pants with heels to make them ~fashion. 

This time around, I've paired a gym-friendly pair of Nike's with dressier pieces. Here's how it turned out:

Paired with my favorite animal print pants and to up the chic factor, topped it off with my blazer. 

BTW, this little modification project I did with Ma's old short-sleeved blazer is one of my genius ideas! I saw recently a similar waistcoat at Zara:

It doesn't get any comfier than wearing gym shoes the whole day. :P

Really loving this pair! Perfect for street styling but also handy for Body Combat days.

I was wearing: Tank top from Topshop, animal print pants from Divisoria (Manila), Nike shoes and modified vest from Ma.

cool days ahead

For the past two weeks, we've been enjoying cooler weather mainly due to the almost daily downpours here in Singapore. Since weather like this (in the mid-20s) come so rarely in Singapore, I take this opportunity to wear my leather gilet out for a spin.
Woke up one Monday morning in the mood for an all-black look. Just piled on my colorful leather bracelets for a touch of color.

And with my comfy mustard flats.

A key piece like an accessory (in this case, my leather vest) can really take a simple meh outfit to the next level. Look how plain without the leather vest.


I was wearing: Cotton On button-down shirt and leggings, H&M leather vest, shoes gifted from Cuz (Kashieca - Manila), leather bracelets from Boracay and Massimmo Dutti.
