I’m back!! Forgive me guys for being MIA this past week – I just finished my second midterm and I have another one in a couple of weeks. Actually, this week is “reading week” and I’ve got three days off to chill and do more blogging for you guys. Today, I’ve decided to get my hair cut as it was way too long and I just couldn’t handle it anymore. I think I might maintain this length because it’s less work and easy to style (hope you guys like the new hair, hihi).
As November is just days away, the weather over here is getting colder and colder and just today I checked the weather and it might actually snow this Saturday – YAY! If this is any indicator of what winter is going to be like, I might not survive it – maybe I’ll just hibernate in my room, LOL. This outfit is casual but it has that sporty element to it because of the boxy cut of the t-shirt. I’m glad that I purchased the medium otherwise this t-shirt might become a crop top. The loose silhouette is very refreshing and this can also be worn over a long sleeve shirt. To keep the look consistent, I paired it with a pair of black skinny trousers and also faux leather slip-on sneakers. Adding some gold accessories can make this look a little fun and edgy.

Let me introduce you guys to Anerkjendt – a fresh and exciting Denmark-based brand that debuted not long ago. With the launch of the brand’s Autumn Winter 2014 collection, it showcases a whole new look and feel, taking a grungy rock ‘n roll approach. This collection offers everything from your basic day-to-day need to a more heavy needs, such as printed tee, heavy knits sweater, leather jacket, hoodie, cardigan and denim. Color palette from this collection is very monochromatic with a few color exceptions such as red, light blue and green. what I like about this collection is that everything works as a unit or individually and the variety of options to choose from is a definite plus cause it gives me the room to explore more styles.
Happy Sunday! This week has been super cold and it rained pretty much the entire week except for today which is why I’m super happy. Since it’s nice out, I decided to do a shoot for you guys. Today’s look is clean, simple and casual – to be quite honest with you guys this is only the second time that I’ve worn this overall because I don’t feel comfortable in it. Well, today I’ve come to accept it and I’m actually loving it more than ever. To keep this look consistent and minimal, I paired it with an embroidered white button-down shirt and to complete the look I wore a pair of white sneakers. The embroidered shirt actually gave this look a nice hint of textures.

Introducing Converse Jack Purcell Moto Jacket Sneaker Collection – this limited collection will be available for purchase starting October 17 at Standard Apparel, Off The Hook and Baggins for a suggested retail price of $100 USD. This new collection embodies the classic Jack Purcell model but with an updated modern look that takes inspiration from moto jacket. When it comes to design and quality, Converse definitely gets it right every time.
The Moto Jacket Sneaker Collection offers premium materials and the detail that goes along with the is impeccable. It features a two-piece leather upper along with canvas lining as well as quilted stitching design that mirrors the ribbed padding of a moto jacket that can be seen at the heel area of the shoes. These shoes are available in Black/Black or White/White Colorways.
One good thing about autumn is that the weather is unpredictable – one day it can be warm and the next it can be cold. While it may not be as hot as summer, the air is pretty dense and kind of dry – that alone is enough to make me want to wear my shorts and shirt. Today’s wardrobe inspiration can be worn both way as it transitions effortlessly. The wave print shirt by Gant Rugger adds a nice and fresh touch to this wardrobe because it works as a statement piece against the rest of the outfit. To keep the look casual and fun, I would pair it with dark distressed jeans and for shoes I would go for either slip-ons or brogues. If the weather is cold, I would throw on a light denim jacket to balance out the darker hues that we have going with the shoes, jeans and shirt. For additional accessories, a sleek leather backpack will take this look to a whole new level.
