NormCore

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.

Summer Blues

By June 1, 2015 Me, Myself & I

IMG_3210 copyIMG_3178 copyOne 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.

Black with A Hint of Camo

By May 29, 2015 Me, Myself & I

Summer is officially here and you know what that means – it’s time to go casual, but not too casual, LOL. Summer is the perfect time to invest in shorts because they can be worn with pretty much anything and they transition well from casual to a more formal look when paired with the right clothes. For me, shorts are all about variations – what do I mean by that? Well… every time I look for shorts, I always go for the basic light wash denim shorts, black denim shorts and also shorts with prints on them. The reason that I do this is because with the light wash denim shorts, I can go for a basic casual look with a white shirt and maybe I’ll accessorize this look with bracelets just to make it not so plain whereas with the black denim shorts I can go for a more edgy look with a black t-shirt and if you really want to look edgy, you can always DYI the black shorts by making a rip in some areas of the shorts. The print shorts, I would wear that for a more fun event such as pool party – the print shorts add a nice touch of summery vibe that just make the look more fun and vibrant.

For this specific style, I decided to go with a monochrome look with just a nice hint of colour to make it more interesting. Of course when wearing, I can match the look with any color that I want, but for this one camo colour is the best option because it flows well with the theme and to finish the look, I wore my bound cuff and my Caravelle watch.

New York City: Photo Diary

By May 17, 2015 New York City, Travel, United States

IMG_0445Hey guys! Starting today, I will be adding a new category to my blog which is ‘travel’. I wish I would have done this sooner because it would have been nice to look at all the things that I have done when I was travelling to a different country. When I was a little, I used to travel a lot with my family – we’ve travelled to Japan, South Africa, Thailand, Australia, China, just to name a few. Even though it was nice and fun to travel all these places, I wish I was a little bit older when I visited these places because I think I would have enjoyed and appreciated the experiences even more. Don’t get me wrong I feel blessed and fortunate enough to have been able to travelled to these amazing places – I definitely would like to make more time and travel and perhaps go back to a few of the countries that I have visited and experience what they have to offer as an adult and more importantly to document it properly, but for now I want to share with you guys my recent trip to New York City.
