Pop of Colour: Yellow

White Top // Uniqlo 
High-waisted Shorts // H&M 
Yellow Cardigan // Mango
Brown Pleather Shoes // Rui Feng Night Market, Taiwan 
Gold chain necklace // Juju Milky 
Bracelets // Vintage1988
Two Finger Ring // DIY 

I surrounded this outfit round this bright and fun piece I've had in my wardrobe since some time ago. I rarely have any yellow coloured items lying around in my wardrobe and accessories collection, as I find it to be a pretty difficult color to match with something else. But of course, when you get lost and unsure, go monochrome! (Yeah from a person who likes color, oops!) 

And this is what I did with this outfit. I kept the other parts of the outfit neutral and subdued, in terms of the colour, like white, dark blue, and brown, and let the the yellow cardigan do the talking. I've also paired up some gold accessories to keep up with the warm-tones in the outfit. 
I love how the whole outfit pulled together, giving this preppy yet laid back feel to it.

Thanks for reading! Hope you have a great weekend!

Oversized Plaid

Plaid Shirt // Catwalk
Black Tank Top
Black Shorts // Tally Weijl
Yin Yang Necklace & Tattoo Anklet // @23naket (instagram)
Rings // Forever 21
Shoes // Topshop

In her last post, Jen styled a white button-down, something she called a wardrobe staple. The shirt I'm wearing today is also something along the lines, a piece that everyone have - (or should have) - a plaid shirt.

I had to get my hands on this shirt as soon as I saw them, not just because they were in black and white...but also because they're really oversized, which I feel distinguishes it from the classic body-fitting plaid shirts. I paired it with a typical black tank top and mid-waist shorts. To give an edge to the look, the accessories and shoes played a big part to make the overall look a bit streetstyle-ish.

I love how versatile plaid shirts are, which you can wear as a top, outerwear, or even just tied around your waist to add a pop of colour and pattern. Not to mention that it is a truly classic piece, it never goes out of style! 

Do stay tuned for more updates! :)
