The Potted Plant

Top : ASOS daisy peplum shirt ; Bottoms : Forever 21 (similar) shorts ; Shoes : Coach Sandals ; Accessories : Juicy Couture chain bracelet, DIY washer bracelet
Lips : MAC Lipstick in Myth w/ Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti ; Nails : Julep in Hayden

I have been loving peplum for this spring and summer, to the point where I will continue to wear it in the fall. Peplum tops can look quite flattering but not at the same time. Smaller looking waist, bigger hips, but unfortunately some peplum tops can make you look pregnant. Just like mine does. To avoid the false belly peplum tops can give you, find one where it flares out between your waist and hips!

Black & Zara Love


Top : Boutique in Hong Kong ; Bottom : Zara lace shorts ; Shoes : Zara leather sandals ; Accessories : Zara multiskull and stud scarf ; Nails : Julep Mandy

I have an intense love for scarves, especially when it has skulls and studs on them.  I could wear this scarf with anything! Today I just didn't feel like sitting in front of my closet thinking what should I wear???? So I dug out the black clothes I had and threw a scarf on.  Remember to pair different textures when wearing all black so the outfit doesn't become boring. :)

Print On Print

Top : Vintage vest, TNA tank top ; Bottom : Winners abstract print pants ; Shoes : Coach sandals ; Accessories : Vintage necklace ; Local Boutique arm band/bracelet
Lips : Revlon Lip Butter Tutti Frutti ; Nails : Julep Sasha

Mixing prints have been very trendy. Whether it's a single piece of clothing with mixed prints or wearing multiple prints throughout an outfit. This outfit is great for those who aren't brave enough to wear mixed prints but would like to follow this trend. The vest I have on has a very subtle floral print and I paired it with an abstract pair of pants. If the vest isn't for you, try a printed scarf!


Light & Comfy

Top : Forever 21 chambray shirt, H&M tank top ; Bottom : Zara trousers ; Shoes : Costa Blanca wedge sandals ; Accessories : Forever 21 curved necklace & square stud earrings, Michael Kors sunglasses

Got these trousers last year but never got a chance to wear them.  They're thin so it's perfect for spring and even summer.  To keep this outfit light and comfy, try not to over accessorize.  Finally pair your wedge sandals with your casual day clothes and you can shop, work, and hike for hours!
