A Formal Occasion

Turtleneck Top // Cotton On
Tube Dress (worn as skirt) // Miss Selfridge
Black Clutch // H&M
Heels // Cotton On

Hey guys! Today's outfit is probably a little different than usual as you have noticed. I realized I have never really posted a formal outfit here (except on our very first post, if that counts), so I've decided to go a little dressier than usual!

Sometimes, there will be an occasion that requires me to dress a little more formally, so here's my take on it with a turtleneck top and high-waisted skirt! I feel like this combo is versatile enough to carry you through most of the formal occasions, such as weddings, presentations in uni, a wine-and-dine date, and so on.

I really like the balance between the turtleneck top and the skirt, which I think shows just the right amount of skin. You don't want to look indecent, especially for a presentation! On a side note, I grabbed these heels on discount in Cotton On, they were just RM30, which is a super good deal!

What do you wear for more formal occasions? Let me know! :)

hue // monochrome styles: Grid

Hi guys! For this hue //  monochrome styles post we will be styling something that is definitely familiar for all of you: the grid print. It goes without saying that the grid print has got to be the most popular and fashionable print to covert for the past few months. It is a wonder how the print is so minimalist yet so eye-catching at the same time. No doubt it will join its plaid brother in the family of classical patterns one day.

That being said, do continue reading to see how the each of us has played around with this print!

High Waisted Shorts // Flea Market @ Jaya One
Boots // H&M

Grid is such an easy piece to style as it goes with anything and it's such a statement by itself! Of course, I had to jump on the grid bandwagon as well. It is a super classic and minimalist print that I think everyone should have at least one piece of grid clothing in their wardrobe, if not more!

I paired this white chiffon, slouchy grid top with my edgy (and most comfortable!) high-waisted shorts. The black and white goes well with each other, and the studs on the shorts add a little character to the outfit. Paired this outfit with my high-heeled boots, and I'm feeling so much more chic already. Overall, I really like this outfit, and have been wearing them out tonnes just because it's easy, comfortable and stylish at the same time!

I knew I had to get a grid shirt when it was popping up everywhere. I mean, black, white and simplistic? It practically has my name written on it. I was looking for one with a longer length than usual and I was super stoked when I finally found this one. The fit and length suits me nicely and I think it is a perfect statement piece, yet still mellow enough to blend into any outfit.

With such a perfect piece in hand, I definitely wanted to up my game. Therefore, I paired it with these skinny jeans, adding on some colour to the outfit; and these gorgeous heels for an extra chic factor. The additional height also help balance out the longer length of the shirt to avoid making myself look shorter. I added some gold accessories here and there to complete the look and I really love the outcome. This is definitely something I would wear out and feel fabulous in because it's just so me.


So that's it from us for this post! We hope you like it and would love to know how you style your own grid pieces as well! Have a great week ahead :)
