The Menswear-Inspired Shoes || Oversized Checked Blazer & Loafers

Hello Hello,

We are well into half of October, and like every month, I have no idea where this month went. I can’t believe we’re half way through it already! Nonetheless, more fall fashion heading your way. (Because after Halloween, it’s all about the holidays and new year).

Today, the menswear-inspired shoe everyone should own, or at least consider owning: the loafers. I seriously love loafers so much. I have 3 YouTube videos dedicated to ways to style loafers: watch here, watch here, and watch here. (Yes, all different loafers in all the videos. Most of them are also thrifted!! Which is a huge plus in my book).

For this look, I went for a minimalistic fall outfit. I started with a pair of black pants and a white tee. Black pants and white tee is a very basic starting point for any outfit mixing. (It looks great on its own too). Then I topped the outfit with an oversized checkered blazer. I love the vintage-vibe and menswear-inspired elements of the blazer. The checkered blazer is printed, but the colors are quite muted so while the blazer is a statement piece, it is not too loud. I finished with a pair of black patent leather loafers (similar here). (The newest pair to my loafer collection).

I’ve also featured loafers on my blog before. So it only makes sense to give you 4 reasons why you should also get a pair of loafers. READ MORE

Hello Hello

This is part 4 of my Bridesmaid dress series where I showcase my bridesmaid dresses I’ve worn for weddings and reflect on my younger self. You can read part 1 (here), part 2 (here), and part 3 here. This series has been nostalgic for me, and hearing your feedback has been lovely.

For this fourth part, I will be reflecting on 2 things I learned post-graduation (so somewhere between 22-23). (Part 1 was a letter to my 13 year-old self, part 2 was what I would tell my 18 year-old self, part 3 was 2 Things I Learned Entering my 20’s).

This green mint chiffon dress I wore to my friend’s wedding. I think this might be my only mint dress from this series. And as usual, I will also include a bridesmaid tip & some pink dresses at the end.

Styling Yellow Crocs || Crocs Shoes & Fringe Jeans

Hello Hello,

The crocs are here. And they are here to stay.

My boyfriend got me these yellow crocs shoes for my birthday a couple months ago. They’re the latest shoe to my shoe collection, but I’ve been enjoying wearing them.

While some people may not like crocs shoes, I don’t mind them too much. In fact, I actually like wearing them to casual events or on my off days.

5 Places to Wear a Little Black Dress || Ann Taylor Dress & Nude Heels

Hello Hello,

Do you ever run into one of those “I don’t know what to wear” situations? I know I do. On one too many occasions.
While I don’t mind shopping for an entire new outfit, I also believe in versatility and re-wearing things already in my closet.

One of my key essential fashion piece for my wardrobe is a little black dress. I think that a black dress can be worn for a variety of occasions. All of you have to do is change up your accessories and shoes to make it match the event accordingly. When in doubt, wear black.

This is not to say you shouldn’t wear color. You should definitely invest in colored clothing pieces. But a little black dress will take you a long way. READ MORE
