Gingham

Hello to the first post of August!

I recently bought this gingham check shirt and I'm so glad I found it on sale because I've been wanting a new shirt and something with this print, so I got a major two in one deal, so happy! For this look, I kept the color palette in an all grey tone for a fresh change from the usual black outfits I wear on a daily basis. I matched the shirt with a simple cocoon skirt. I quite like the volume and how it accentuates my non-existent hips for a more feminine silhouette. The material is somewhat like neoprene and creates more shape as well. Its a little loose on me, but I'll still continue to wear it even though I bought it for my sister who lives in NZ. I can't deny any garment with pockets! so functional. I wore grey shoes to complement the entire outfit. 

I'm going through a sneaker phase as of now so I got this pair of low-cut Chucks, my first pair of Converse shoes actually. I've been to wanting to stock up on more walking shoes and sneakers for school. As I sadly hardly wear my heels and wedges anymore, due to impracticality. Never did I think that I would start wearing sneakers, I always associated it with sports. Therefore I never wanted to buy them. But now sports inspired fashion is gaining momentum as a trend, with the likes of mesh and sports luxe. So I've finally caught on to the hype and ventured into making sneakers a staple for my everyday wear.

I kept my jewelry minimal, wearing all silver tone. In my hand is a little transparent iPhone holder DIY'ed by me! I made it with my friend who enjoys doing craft. It was super easy and inexpensive to make too.

( White shirt/ H&M, Coated trousers/ COS, Silver sandal heels/ Kmart, Sunglasses & Drop earrings/ OASAP)

I've been working at COS during my school break and I have slowly adapted my style to the modern and timeless aesthetic that the Swedish brand carries. Simply because there's no work uniform and we are expected to dress as a COS representative. Button up shirts have been a staple piece in my wardrobe ever since I started work and I have introduced the classic button up into my casual everyday wear as well. You can never go wrong with white shirt. For this outfit, I teamed the fitted trousers with a loose fit shirt, untucked at the back for a more relaxed look. Wore silver sandal heels and rhinestone drop earrings to add a feminine aspect to the androgynous style.
I recently cut my hair if you noticed a change! I wasn't planning on such a short length and I was in a state of panic when I saw the amount of hair that was chopped off. But I have always wanted to try a shorter hairstyle so I'm happy with how it turned out.
