The Little Things

“It’s the little things that make life big” –

Sometimes we see an outfit that seems simultaneously so ordinary yet special. It’s because all the little things, the details, the intricacies transforms the outfit from boring to extraordinary.

Today, N wears a white peasant blouse with jean shorts and a matching white bow, a seemingly mundane outfit. However, her shorts have a lace applique peeking out, adding a “wow” factor with the lace trend that matches the lacey back of her top. Not only that, but she also wears intricate lace-up cut-out sandals that adds another layer of complexity to her outfit.

Here’s a close up of the little things ^o^ :

Flower Power

“The Earth laughs in flowers” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

So we’ve been featuring the flower trend a lot recently, but how can we help it? Flowers are an essential, whether it be growing in your garden or in hanging your closet.

Today, N continues the floral trend with a bright colorful outfit instead of the dark, patterned romper of yesterday. She wears a bright floral top with lace embellished shorts and a pink bow to create a fun summer look while the necklace brings a focal point.

Here’s a close up of the necklace:

Floral Fling

Each new beginning comes from some other beginnings end. – Seneca

Happy national lipstick day everybody! Though personally not one to wear lipstick, I definitely appreciate lipstick’s amazing ability to completely transform a boring, mundane outfit to a completely fun, interesting one. On our blog today, we have a transformation of our own as we finally got around to using our nice (but so complicated ohmygosh. Am I even pressing the right buttons?) Nikon camera.

Strawberries ‘n Cream

Mmm. What I wouldn’t give for strawberries ‘n cream. With only a month left of summer, there’s an added pressure to make each day count. It feels like May and final exams were only yesterday.

Today, N wears a bright red ensemble, reminding us all to make the most of the remaining days.

N wears a semi-transparent red tank with cute white bow, shorts, and wedges. It’s a clean, yet fun look as the daring red punctuates the neutral white of the rest of the look.

Breezy Days

Sometimes we just have to let things go.”

Holding onto things can be extremely exhausting whether it be standards or feelings. Sometimes, you just want to let go of everything and be easy breezy. Well doing so may not be the best for your work or goals, but you can definitely dress the part.

Today, N wears a brilliant orange-red chiffon top with standard jean shorts paired with her pom-pom flip flops and matching red bow. What’s special about this seemingly ordinary outfit is the way the top drapes in the back to create a light, breezy effect.

As always, here’s the profile of the back:

The back-slashed tank is a good investment as the same cut-out tank appears in this outfit to create yet another stunning look. The tank top works well with a top of any variation of the currently trendy cut-out back.

The two draping chiffon layers is a nice twist to the typical trending chiffon tops. Overall, this is a nice breezy outfit to wear on a casual day basis.

M Material: Aldo Shoe Haul 7/25

“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” -Marilyn Monroe

Between the hot summer air and the super mid-season sales, today was the perfect day to go shopping. I was in desperate need of new shoes so I decided to check out Aldo, one of my favorite shoe stores! After a long day of walking in circles,  I ended up buying 2 adorable pairs of comfy heels.

Here are the pictures:

With shoes like these, anybody can conquer the world… or at least a haul blog post. The heels definitely gives a nice height boost, though the first pair maybe not as much. Nevertheless, they both look and feel great.

Au revoir
