Casual Chic

 I don't know about you guys but sometimes I just really don't feel like dressing up. I enjoy styling clothes and creating different ensembles but on days when I feel uninspired, getting ready can be quite a challenge. So what's the best way to perk up dull and lazy days? I simply decide on a laid-back outfit combination and select basic pieces for a casual chic look.

 I opted for a blazer, t-shirt and skirt combo for today's outfit. I wasn't planning on wearing a jacket but I chose otherwise considering the unpredictable weather we've been having. This camel blazer was the perfect thing to keep me warm while out and about.

 When most people would rather buy dresses with wild prints and trendy patterns, I usually go for garments with simple silhouettes and minimal designs instead. You see, when styled correctly, basic items do not look boring at all. It's just a matter of choosing a classic color palette to achieve a stylish and cohesive ensemble. Neutrals will always be my favorite as they are chic and can instantly make you look well put together.

 I've been having this insane obsession with skirts lately and I just cannot stop buying them! This denim skater style that I'm wearing was a recent purchase from Chicnova. The fit is fab and I love its dark blue wash.

What do you wear to brighten up your mood? :)

Gap striped shirt, Chicnova denim skirt, Charles & Keith boots, Prada bag

I love your bag! :) Was wondering if they're actually cheaper to buy in Europe compared to HK, MNL, etc.

Hi, Czarina! It's actually cheaper to buy designer goods in the country they are made. Those purchased everywhere else are imported so there will be more taxes + duties involved. If you want to buy bags from American designers, get them in the US. If you fancy French or Italian brands, buy them from Europe. :)
