Meltdown Monday

H&M black maxi / HOLLISTER marled cardigan / FOREVER 21 accessories / PHILLIP LIM for TARGET handbag

Yesterday marked the last Monday of Summer. Classes start next week and I am NOT ready at all! Meltdown, anyone? Speaking of meltdowns, I had a major one yesterday while trying to find THE LBD for my 21st this Saturday. I blame myself for such last minute preparations. Scouring most of the stores in the city, I left with no avail as nothing was pleasing to the eye. The LBD was either too plain, too trendy, too conservative, or too (the list goes on). Call me picky, but I was trying to find one that'll last. In the end, I found one online and all that's left is to pray it will come before my birthday. Since I knew I was going to be trying on a bunch of dresses, I chose to wear my maxi out. To add more comfort, I adorned my favorite cardigan as the weather was a bit chilly. Last but not least, a statement necklace always adds more dimension to the entire look.

To New Beginnings

OASAP tee / FOREVER 21 striped cardigan / STEVE MADDEN boots / FRANCESCA'S COLLECTION red crossbody

Summer's almost ending and yet, I felt like it just started for me. Recently, I've quit my job that consumed up so much of my time that I realized how much it tired me out. With the free time I have, I decided to jump back into blogging for good. Now, I'm all for dressing casual as I haven't for months. I adore this tee from OASAP. I knew I had to get it once I saw it on their site. It's tomboyish with a girly flare from the added florals. I also like how it's just muted with no colors whatsoever. Sometimes dressing in just black and white seems so refreshing. Of course I had the urge to add in some color, so I opted for my favorite red crossbody. A simple yet trendy outfit. Perfect for a day out.
