SUNDAYS BEST

If thrifting is wrong then I don't want to be right. To think that before this was something to be embarrassed about but now its quite trendy and a thing of pride to get amazing pieces at ridiculous prices. I mean who doesn't love stylish items for a bargain, I know I do. I have been thrifting more often that usual due to the fact that well the clothes are less expensive and they are more conservative, I can find knee length and properly fitted skirts and pants.

I picked up this skirt, scarf and belt on one of my recent yet unexpected trips to the thrift shop. I was bored and walking around and I found an amazing thrift shop near to my place, I'm definitely going back soon. I purchased the skirt for 100 Baht( $3), the scarf and belt for 50 baht ($1.50) each, amazing right?
For church yesterday I simply paired this blue skirt with a basic white T, tied a scarf bow. Then added my belt and snakeskin pumps to complete the look.

HOW WOULD YOU WEAR / MIXED PRINTS

Today I collaborating with my fellow bloggers on a mixed prints challenge, see the previous collab here. Props to Diane of Dee-vineanonyme for putting this together. 

I have to admit, as much as I love prints, I had a not so easy time putting together an outfit. Though I eventually decided on stripes, since its the easiest print to mix. Hence I paired my striped top with my printed pleated skirt previously styled here. I then added a statement necklace and my black pumps.

THE SKIRT SHORTS


I had promised myself no more shorts or quite frankly no more items below knee length. It’s a matter of practicality, seeing as I don’t have enough places to wear shorts to. However, when I went window shopping which wasn’t the smartest idea since I am trying to shop once a month, I found this awesome pair.
Funny enough I had initially walked away from it since I could not really figure where to wear it to and how to wear it but the price is great ($2) and I love this length for shorts.

What caught my eye about these shorts were the amazing pattern and of course the fact that it looked like a skirt. Styling it was not as hard as I had imagined, I reached for my brown top which has been in my closet for almost two years now. Then I opted for a statement necklace and nude pumps. Now where would I wear this too? Well, my friend is having a birthday party this weekend so I might sport this outfit, though I think with some sheer tights and a white blazer, this look might be appropriate for work.

K.I.S.S


When in doubt keep an outfit as simple as possible hence the title of this post 'KISS' (keep it simple stupid).
This look is perfect for those laid back days where you want to look chill but still a bit dressy. This outfit was actually inspired by Skinnyhipster's look, however I made it a more summery outfit due to the Bangkok weather. I opted for my colour blocked sandals which has been in a box since I rocked it here, I love the pop of colour it adds to this look.

I'm starting to realize that I don't wear jeans that often, I guess I've become a skirts girl. My reason is simple, I hate jeans shopping! Either the waist is too loose or the legs are too tight which is why I avoid jeans shopping. Believe it or not but this is the only pair of blue jeans I own and it took me almost an hour of trying various pairs to find this one.

CHECKMATE


So there I was, Saturday night, standing in front of the mirror with clothes strewn everywhere trying to decide what to wear to church the next day. Then I remembered this lovely skirt I had thrifted a few weeks ago and I reached for it. The task of finding a matching top presented itself but then I saw my check shirt lying in a pile of clothes. I was unsure of this pairing at first since I had stopped wearing this shirt due to the fit but after trying on the check shirt, I thought to myself  "Checkmate" hence the title of this post.

Let me challenge you now as I ask you one simple question, "what do you think about when your alone". The message today really caused me to further question the type of shows, movies, books and music I expose myself too. The truth is what we choose to mediate on matters because it shapes our attitude and that's eventually what we become. I am also talking to myself when I say this, we need to really censor what we allow our eyes to see. Its a constant struggle but God's grace is sufficient for us.

"And now dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise"

(Philippians 4:8 NLT )

HALO EFFECT

There is something so refreshingly pure about white . I just love the halo effect it casts, though this also gives the impression of appearing larger but oh well. Any-who, I've previously styled these basic white pants in an all white look here and here. Today I thought I'd go basic with a hint of edge by tucking in one side of my shirt and sporting my new leopard print shades. 

Truth is I'd rock all-white more often but the thing is at the end of the day I always get dirty somehow. Oh please let me know if you have any tips on how to clean white pumps. Of course I had my random moment of dancing because well it just makes a photo-shoot session so fun.
