Printed skirts are always a spring/summer staple, but these particular ones from Just G are too mind-blowingly adorable to miss!
I browsed through ViVi August 2013 just now and they’re just as hungover with resort prints as I am. Usually, I see a lot of green in these kinds of prints, so this skirt from Just G is super unique with its vibrant blue and orange color. Paired it with a simple, semi-sheer lace top (What can scream “spring/summer” better than this?) that’s perfect for hot, humid weather.
Notice how I also wore coral lipstick to match my skirt and shoes! I’m always wearing pink or nude lipstick so this was such a refreshing change. What do you think?
This skirt is quite the head-turner! I chalk it up to the bright fuchsia pink that adds an element of fun to the whole outfit. You can’t not be cheerful with this skirt on because all the pretty colors will definitely keep your mind just as bright.
Have fun looking for the perfect printed skirt!
If there’s one print or pattern that you have to have this season, black and white stripes are your best bet. Don’t you think it’s such a breath of fresh air to see high contrast monochromes for spring-summer? I sure do!
Black and white stripes this season come in so many different styles, widths (thin, thick) and orientations (vertical, horizontal, diagonal), but my favorite kind would have to be these bold statement stripes that fall right in line (pun intended) with my personal style.
I love how this trend was able to encompass not just casual wear but also dressier items, as seen on celebrities who even wore them to certain red carpet events!
This mixed stripes dress is absolute perfection! It’s not out on Apartment 8 yet but I can see it being the next big item!
If you’re not a fan of one pieces, there are also black and white striped bottoms available for you to pair with other items in your closet. For this one, I decided to play it safe with a simple white top, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you can pair it with another black and white print ala Marc by Marc Jacobs!
It’s another season of cut-outs, and I am so in. Well, it’s been around for a long time, but I couldn’t really push myself to go completely out of my comfort zone with waist-baring, back-revealing ones that will compromise my usually-conservative style. I find that there are more options for cut-outs now, and my favorite kind would be the ones that show off the neck and shoulders.
Here are three outfits that clearly show my growing obsession for cut-out details. They range from subtle to something more obvious, and I can’t wait to get my hands on more creative cut-out placements in the future.
Pardon the overuse of girly skater skirts for these looks. This formula has become some sort of uniform for me recently!
There is an abundance of lines in this outfit, and I’m loving every centimeter of it. I resurrected these shoes from a long time ago! Right now, clear/transparent elements on shoes are quite big, and I’m glad this pair has already been lying around on my shoe rack for a while. If you’ve noticed, I’ve also been into a lot of open-toe footwear recently! There’s nothing else quite as spring and summer, I think.
An older look which I only got to posting here today. A lot of people were fooled into thinking this was a dress, when in fact I was actually wearing two separate pieces. Sometimes you’ve just got to improvise. In this case, I didn’t have any dresses with this kind of silhouette, as you all know how much I absolutely love wearing loose shift dresses. So I made my own version of the off-shoulder top and peplum skirt dress, and put it all together with my trusty shiny belt.
I know I could’ve put some sort of color contrast with the shoes, but I couldn’t help breaking fashion rules for this particular pair of wedges!
When in accessory-doubt, just wear clothes with embellishments. These two items from Chicwish are a match made in heaven because of this. The detailed collar makes for a good necklace alternative, while the little pearl studs on the skirt are on the same level as my hands, serving as alternatives to arm/finger candy.
A must-have in every spring wardrobe is the floral print skirt! I’ve quite a few of them, in varying colors fit for both dark and light color schemes. This one is a confused don’t-know-if-winter-or-spring kind of skirt but I love it all the same, because it fits all the black things in my closet.
Anyhoo, as you all know, black and white is a huge trend this coming season, and it’s the perfect time to stock up on these classic two-tone goodies that can last you even until after it’s over. Recently, I’ve been trying so hard to ban myself from shopping just so I can save enough to splurge in my upcoming Japan trip, but the force is weak with this one! Just can’t get enough.
Also, I’m in a love-hate relationship with my current hair. I have a very strong urge to cut it short because the last 4 or so inches are immensely damaged (don’t know if it’s obvious in these pictures) from a recent dye disaster, keeping me from going out with straight hair or even putting my hair down in general. So many people have been telling me to get the same length as the wig I’ve been sporting in my last posts because it looks more chic, but I’m a little scared because my hair has always been my security blanket…

Hello to my compromise between winter and spring. These artsy prints on my sleeves make such a good combination of dark, majestic colors and their pastel counterparts. So much that they me want to have more of these uniquely-placed watercolor-like prints on all my plain button-downs (if only I could).
This is generally a simple outfit, as usual, that makes use of almost zero accessories except my staple earrings. I’m not a huge fan of arm candies/arm parties where you wear a ton of wrist accessories all at the same time, but I’m definitely someone who values the beauty in simplicity and minimalism. This being said, I only wore my new Haurex watch as an accessory for this particular ensemble. The pale lavender-pink strap has to be my favorite part about it! It’s so hard to find this color everywhere. Anyhow, Haurex is a brand from Italy that is currently being sold in Time Depot, and this particular style is available in both 36mm for women and 40mm for men. All the colors are super sophisticated, perfect for those who want a simple but mature watch. I’m eyeing the military green men’s version next!
