Back to Basics






( Top from local store, F21 shorts, H&M wedges, Bag from local store )

I think the fundementals of great design often get convuluted with sequins, prints, and other decorative frill. Not to say I don't enjoy said frill, but sometimes it feels refreshing to take the "less is more" approach. I found this beautifully draped shirt at a local store here in Shanghai, and I'm absolutely in love with it. The light cotton material keeps me cool, and the smart draping makes the blouse universally flattering, not to mention chic. I paired it with a pair of denim cut-offs and the most comfortable wedges! I threw on my alternative to a Mulberry Alexa - I also found it at some random shop here, but it was all leather, so I think this is as close to the real deal as I'm ever gonna get.

I'm super jealous of anyone that has waist-length locks right now. I attempted the Alexander Wang side braid, needless to say it failed miserably and all I got was a lump of mess on the right side of my head. Damn you short hair. I feel like my hair isnt long enough to wear any fun hairstyle, I guess I'll continue to pile it all on the top of my head.

Well, my lunch break is over, its back to work for me!
