DENIM + FLORALS



When it comes to styling floral pieces, my go to pairing is a denim shirt; it’s just so classic and effortless. I got this skirt about two years ago and I have only worn it a couple times (smh). In, my opinions floral are just perfect for summer. For a casual day time look I would rock this outfit with sneakers or gladiator sandals which I need to get by the way. Now, if I wanted to make more of an effort, or if I were going somewhere nice, I would go for my simple nude Zara sandals.

RE-TAKE


If you've been following me for a while, you know I usually post on Sundays. However I lost all blog post pictures for the week yesterday. How? I don’t really know, I was just looking through the pictures getting ready to edit them and I clicked on something and just like that they were all gone. After crying myself to sleep (smh now) and ranting later, I decided there was nothing I could do so I've kind of let it go. Thank God for my brother, he did not mind retaking all the outfit photos for me. So I took all my blog posts pictures before heading out to work.

Now on to today's outfit post. I bought this skirt last month and this is now the third time I am featuring it on the blog and this won’t be the last time. I styled it HERE and HERE, today I just paired it with a basic stripe top and red shoes for a pop of colour. 
 
Skirt: H&M // Shirt: Siam Market // Shoes: New Look // Bag: H&M // Necklace: H&M // Belt: Workshop

I could not decide whether to go with or without a belt for this outfit, what do you guys think?

RANDOME FRIDAY: 10 SHOPPING TIPS FROM A SHOPAHOLIC

Its Friday, and you know what that means, Randome Friday!
Shopping is one of my favourite hobbies so I thought I'd share some shopping tips with you.

This photo was taken earlier this year on my best shopping experience ever. See full post HERE.

1. Don’t Go Broke
I can't tell you how many times I've gone overboard, shopped with all my money then had nothing left for the month. What’s the point of having a closet full of clothes if you have no money to go out and rock these clothes?

2. Shop with a Purpose
One way to avoid binging or going broke is to decide what you want to buy before shopping. You can either make a mental or written list. Analyze your wardrobe and decide what items you need. Another thing to do would be to budget, for example, give yourself a $100 limit every month.

3. Save, Save, Save
When you save money you have so much money to spend on other things and you can shop a whole lot more and not feel guilty about it. This is honestly one of the hardest things for me, but it’s so worth it.

4. Stick to Basics
I love basic because they are versatile. Also if you’re still discovering your style these are the best pieces to go for.

5. Think, Think, Think
Have you ever seen an item you were so in love with but for some reason, you could not buy it, then when you eventually went to get the item, you did not want it anymore? Well that’s because you had so much time to think. Make sure you think very carefully before going shopping.

6. Test, Test, Test
Never buy something that does not fit well, chances are, rarely would you wear the item. Try the items in different sizes to get the right fit. Also go with a friend and get their opinion on the fit.

7. Sale
One way to get the most of your money is to go shopping during sales. I don’t know about you buy I feel so proud of myself when I get amazing pieces at awesome prices. Sales are usually at the end of every month but it depends on the brand, so know your sale periods.

8. Shop with Cash
When you shop with cash you know exactly how much you are spending compared to using a credit card, you don’t always see all of the money adding up.

9. Shop Your Closet
Often times we buy items, leave them in our closet and forget about them. So make sure to constantly check your closet, you never know what you will find.

10. Trends
Don’t ever buy things just because, oh I know everyone is wearing it but do you really like it? Don’t just follow trends blindly. Always stay true to yourself.

Do you have any other shopping tips?

TGIT


I never really understood the hype about Fridays "TGIF" but now that I am working I even appreciate Thursday’s hence the title of this post "Thank God It’s Thursday". I can’t wait for the weekend for some relaxation and I can finally get my hair done.

So for today I decided to dress down, I paired my soft pink blazer with this simple pleated skirt to dress up this outfit. What caught my eye in this blazer are the satin lapels. Since the skirt was is a bit short for work, I opted for flats but another option would be to go for sheer tights and heels. I think nerd glasses would go great with this look but I only thought of it when I had already left home.




Skirt: Siam Market // Shirt: Street Market // Blazer: Thrifted // Shoes: Street Market 

I think I prefer this look without the blazer, what do you guys think?
