I’m still alive!
Hey guys! I want to apologize for being MIA for almost a month – last month has been such a busy month for me, from school to work which left me little to no time to blog. August will be a little better for me as I only have finals to write and after that, I’m done with the summer semester.
This look was shot a couple of months ago but hey better late than nothing. This is actually my first time wearing an all white look and truth be told I ain’t hating it. What I like about this look is that it’s not too flashy and in your face kind of situation. To not make it not so plain, I wore my THPShop Bound Cuff and stacked it with my silver Caravelle watch. This look turned out great and I definitely will be wearing more whites in the near future. Also, a pair of white ripped jeans with basic white shirt is a great alternative to this look if you’re looking for a more edgy vibe.
Now, there’s nothing to be scared of when it comes to floral prints because when worn in the right way, you can look good in it. It’s always good to remember that when it comes to prints you don’t want to overdo it and just let that piece of clothing be the star of the look. The last thing you want to do is look like a walking flower garden. To balance the feminine vibe from the shirt, I paired it with a pair of black ripped jeans by Zara to make it more edgy and to compliment the entire look, I wore my new Aldo boots. Also, if you want to make it a little bit more casual, a black backpack is a good option – in this case, I have my Fjallraven Kanken backpack.

NormCore (Normal + Hardcore) seems to be the latest trend and it’s not stopping any time soon. This outfit is my take on NormCore – I wore my basics and incorporated a few statement pieces, such as my THPShop Cuffs and my latest purchase Givenchy Obsedia bag. The point of NormCore is to stand out in your everyday basics without standing out (if that makes sense). What I love about this trend is that it’s easy, effortless and casual which is perfect for the summer. Since ripped jeans are making a comeback, I’ve decided to DIY what I already own, in this case my Topman Limited jeans to make them look more edgy and fun. To complete this look, I wore my crisp and white Perry Ellis shirt as well as white Adidas Superstar 2 sneakers.

One of the things that I always keep in mind whenever I’m putting up together an outfit is that, either to keep it monochrome or do some color blocking. As you can see, this outfit I went with a monochrome look with a hint of white just to give it a nice balance–plus the white adds a nice contrast to the look.
I feel like this style is somewhat versatile as it can be worn on a casual outing during the day or as a formalwear during the night – what I would do to make it more formal is get rid of the accessories, tuck in the shirt or wear a nice solid color jacket over this shirt. Depending on where you’re going, substituting the white sneakers with loafers would make the look more elegant and classy. Remember, subtlety is key and don’t overdo it when it comes to accessorizing – keep it simple and cool!
PS. Special thanks to Curated USA for sending me this awesome shirt.
