And since the chances of me putting up a proper post while out of the country approach the thickness of a microfiber (ie. very, very slim), I thought it'd be best to get one sorted out before the end of the month.
Last month we took a short road trip while out on a family brunch - the weather was absolutely stunning and it was the perfect mix of sun and sea breeze. Despite having to travel to an exceptionally rainy region soon, I am still keeping my hopes up for weather like this:
White cardigan: ESPRIT // Denim button-down: H&M // Skirt: YesStyle.ca //
Running shoes: New Balance // Red bowler hat: Amazon // Bag: Juicy Couture
I have this love-hate relationship with skirts; I'm sufficiently convinced that others with bulky calves understand this woe. And as a person of a somewhat diminutive stature, the length of a skirt plays a Goliath-like role in determining the stoutness of my outward appearance.
While the maxi-dress/-skirt and flat sandal pairing results in effortless elegance on tall, slender beings, the same cannot be said for everyone. As such, pairing flat running shoes may not have been the most visually appealing decision. However, it was the most appropriate one, since any other styles of footwear would have resulted in a high probability of a twisted ankle from walking on unevenly-places rocks along a shore.
And you know what they say about being all matchy-matchy? Well, it's back.
Not in the "let's wear polka dots from head to toe" sense, but it's a rather common trend to don matching suit pieces for a casual outing.
Truthfully though, that kind of matching doesn't quite coincide with the pieces I'm accustomed to wearing. So I'll just settle for simple neutral palette, with a few splashes of blue thrown in.
Oh, and a quilted crossbody bag to render the ensemble a tad more sophisticated. (Cuz, why not?)
Now, it's time for me to get packing! Vacation, here I come~
