No. 55


I am a full supporter of pairing dresses with pants. I love the layering effect! At first I wore slim black pants underneath this dress, but now, with summer here, I switched it up with some white denim culottes. When I get dressed or plan outfits, I have a general idea and image in my head of what I'm going to put together. This ensemble, however, happened more by trial and error. I picked the dress, and then I went through just about every pair of pants I own until these pieces matched up, and voila. Outfit made.

Sometimes I find that trial-by-error method of dressing useful. Those mornings when I seemingly cannot find anything (satisfactory) to wear? I choose one piece I know I want, and start mixing it and remixing it with other pieces. Sooner or later, something will stick. It's this method that leads me to "rediscover" my closet once in a while, and see some old things in new ways.

No. 54



I'm always on the hunt for a good pair of shoes. And I mean always. Flat ones, especially, are my eye-catchers. I have a couple pairs of heels, but I rarely wear them as comfort is one of my cornerstones for dressing. The options in low-heeled shoes are endless, though, and they always add a certain cool, laidback factor. If I am lucky enough to collect these styles soon, I'm sure I'll be able to wear them into the fall as well. And this is just a teaser--when those full A/W collections drop, these Wishful Thinkings will be through the roof.

I'm a big fan of balance. In life, in work, in play... when it comes to my personal style, I employ the same ideal. When I first purchased this blush-pink top, it was one of the first colourful pieces I had purchased in a while, and so a little out of character for me. However, its out-of-the-boxness was also what allowed me to envision it fitting into my wardrobe, especially for the summer. Paired with the pleated skirt (a little more up my usual alley), I had what I considered to be a pretty, feminine outfit. However, I craved adding another element, something athletic or masculine-inspired, just to tip the scales a bit. Hence, the sneakers. 

I'm hugely partial to sneakers (as you may know), and the not-quite-gold-not-quite-silver sheen of this pair was perfect to add. Just like that, a piece that I wouldn't usually wear and a piece that I would was brought together with a usual suspect. Balance.
