BLUE COLLARED

TRANSFORMATIVE WORK WEAR
Uniqlo shirt (similar here & here), H&M skirt (similar here & here), trench coat from Korea, Schutz heels, vintage Gucci doctor satchel
Although I didn't wear this exact outfit to work (I wore it with jeans instead), it serves as a nice transformative outfit from the office to a social setting such as happy hour. I purchased this collared shirt with the intention of wearing it to work but have been surprised at the amount of times I've worn it casually away from the office.  I have though always been one to mix-and-match articles of clothing together to see how many variations of styles I can create. Thus, a collared shirt's ability to be worn professionally, then with some added sex-appeal with a skirt instead of some pants makes this outfit perfect for those on-the-go with eventful plans after work.

BACK IN BLACK

SHEER UNDERLAYS OVER CROPPED OVERLAYS
Zara cropped sweater (similar here) & sheer long-sleeved top, H&M suede shorts, Zara sandals, Louis Vuitton Neverfull 

Apologies for disappearing off the face of the earth the past few months, but I'm back! I still can't believe it's been November since I last blogged. My life got incredibly hectic attempting to balance full-time work + full-time school, while trying to maintain a social life that blogging ended up getting de-prioritized. Thus, it totally felt refreshing being back out, blogging again. I've had this semi-cropped black sweater hanging in my closet for the past few days now anticipating a time to wear it. Its not everyday that I want to wear high-waisted pants, especially during winter where all I want to do is stay comfortable. Thus, I resorted to an easy fashion fix, layering. While layering over a button-up seemed too preppy for a typical Monday, I resorted to this sheer long sleeve tee (also worn here) which has also been getting neglected in my closet for the past few months. Talk about a day of pampering the neglected.

PLAID BOTTOMS

& A BIRDED TOP
F21 blouse, AE scarf (similar here & here), H&M trousers (similar here & here), Zara heels, Rebecca Minkoff mac mini clutch
I've been obsessed with plaid lately and have especially been obsessed with all things hunter green. The mix of both help give off that preppy vibe that other plaid colors can't readily do. It's also been seasonly appropriate with the holidays approaching. Thus, right when I saw these pants on the rack, I knew they had to belong in my closet. Does that ever happen to you too? You find something and know you just have to have it? I don't know if its just me and my shopping obsession, but I feel like that happens to me way too often haha.

ELIZABETH & JAMES FALL '13 LOOKBOOK

WORTH THE BASICS
shop the collection here via shopbop
Having those perfect wardrobe basics is a necessity for fall. Basics serve as your go-to's for those simple wardrobe days, and also become your layering saviours when attempting to keep stylishly warm. I have always been a fan of Elizabeth & James for their more "lady-like" silk pieces, but their Fall basics from their TEXTILE collection is nothing but pure bliss. Casual pieces worth the splurge.

PINK BLUSH

& SOME THIN LEATHER
I'm not typically a fan of the color pink but this muted pink blush with a touch of thin leather straps spoke my fashion lingo in a purposeful way. My schedule recently has gotten so hectic where I'm always on-the-go from one place to another that my sense of style has transformed more into convertible wear these days. In the short period of time that I've owned this top, I've already worn it out (with a leather skirt), at work (paired with a blazer and dark skinny jeans), and for a day out in the sun. Easy to style, ability to cater for multiple wardrobe functions, and also quite comfortable makes me now a fan of blush pink pink.
