What have I missed?

What have I missed?

Photographs by dear mom : )

(Monki shirt dress, American Apparel shorts, Topshop hat, bralette and sandals)

Yay! It’s been six months! I can’t believe I’ve made it this far : P
I want to thank you all for your sweet comments, following and returning visits. They mean so much to me : ) Okay, maybe it’s a little cheesy to put it that way. I have a giveaway coming up soon. Leave a comment and tell me what you guys are interested in getting!

Back to the outfit. I did a similar outfit earlier this year. I like to call this kind of layering the “superhero effect”, because it creates a cape-like effect when I’m walking and it feels like, well, superhero : P It’s definitely a fun way to dress up but try to stick with muted colours or it may look somewhat clowny. I got this Monki dress from last season. I don’t think they still have the exact same piece but they do have some versatile pieces for layering.

I’m kinda obsessed with ankle-length button-down shirt dresses this spring. From Stella McCartney’s Chilling in the Mediterranean type to Michael Kor’s Safari-inspired type, they just look effortless! I’m also in love with this peach peasant dress by Fendi. All you have to do is cinch it up with a skinny belt and slip on your favourite pair of sandals, and you’re all set!

Street inspirations

I always like to layer a button-up shirt over my summer basics, but it always end up looking baggy. Autilia’s denim shirt with cut-out shoulder details is the perfect solution for a causal sexy look! I may not have Nicole Warne’s unique features or her perfect hair, but I’m happy to be inspired by her fabulous style.  I love the way she worn her sheer peach shirt and paired it with simple leather shorts. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – for some people : )  Jennifer from Agogo Fashion is giving us the ultra-sexy superhero effect : ) You see, to conceal is to reveal in style. I’m a fan.
