New Old Ways

November 16, 2015

ONE: Sleeves completely unbuttoned and unfolded. This give the sleeves an illusion that they’re bell sleeves. I especially love pairing this with a mock neck sweater and letting the collar and sleeves stick out. 

Sweater: Zara (old, similar here)
Top: F21 (old, similar here, and here)

TWO: Shirt fully unbuttoned, criss-cross, wrapped, and tucked into a high-waisted bottom. This is also super cute with a midi skirt! I love wearing a lace bralette underneath this method and layering a lot of jewelry to add emphasis.

Top: J.Crew (my boyfriend’s)
BF Jeans: Zara (old, similar here)
Bralette: Anine Bing
Accessories: Fendi Bag Bug Charm

Contrary to popular beliefs, one does not have to be rich to be fashionable, as being stylish has nothing to do with having a lot of clothes, but enough clothes. It is especially this point that stems the idea of minimalism.

Minimalism isn't about wearing less clothes or less colors or less anything, in fact, it is simply wearing enough.

For my personal style, it is sufficient as long as I'm wearing an outfit that has one single striking detail.

It might come across through this blog that I have a lot of clothes but the reality of it is, I really don’t. I don't shop very often. Although, I will admit I have an out of control wishlist and my guilty pleasure is looking at the new arrivals at some of my favorite brands before I go to sleep.

Like how I invest my money in some of the pieces I have, I invest my whole lifestyle and the rest of my wardrobe to that single piece. A good piece of clothing is not one that is expensive but for me, it's a piece that I feel happy and comfortable wearing when I'm stuck in a situation when I feel like I have nothing else I would rather wear at the moment. This is why I'm always looking for new and different ways to continue wearing some of my beloved pieces.

Would love to know which one is your favorite and let me know if you would try! :)
