3.1 Phillip Lim x Zara

 Happy Sunday! The summer season is coming to an end, but mother nature sure knows how to make an impression with the heat. To contrast with the heat, it's always best to wear light colors, other than black (I know I'm sad inside because I always wear black). However, I cannot escape from wearing boots!

My post consists of a grey wrap skirt from Zara and a sleeveless, fish printed, jeweled tank by Phillip Lim. The statement piece is the top itself which has bold spring/summer colors, but to elevate the tank from any ordinary tank, there are clear jewels around the neckline. Makes it easy without having to accessorize much. Another feature of the tank is a contrasting sheer fabric on the back, making it a bit sexy.

On a side note, I have become more of a fan of Phillip Lim's collection because of how amazing his clothes fits me. From having a more block style dress to a dress that gives you a fit and flare to show your physique. If you haven't checked out his F/W 14 collection, go check it out! Great fabric, great prints, and simplicity.

 Summer is coming to a close, but the heat continues to shine down! Featured in this post is a white sleeveless jbrand blouse. With a pocket on one side and a flap on the other side, a simple sleeveless piece is elevated to add a bit more sophistication to a casual look.

I styled this top in two ways, one with a skinny boyfriend and with distressed shorts. The boyfriend jeans are by Joes Jeans which I sized down to create a skinnier fit. It's a great pair of jeans to have as they are more true denim compared to other brands that have a lot of stretch quality these days.

The super distressed shorts are from Topshop and are meant to be boyfriend shorts, but I sized down in them as well for a tighter fit. To add a more carefree feel to the outfit with shorts, I put on a fedora from Topman, which is nice to block the sun from my face.

Lately, I have been admiring jbrand's ready to wear collection from being around them at work. In an easy phrase, it's casual sophistication.

 Happy Sunday! The best day of the week for me because it means relaxation, good food, and good company. What I am bringing to my blog today is my love for a minimalistic look. The fact that I have recently been purchasing lots of black pieces is influenced from work, and the fact that black just easily elevates any look any time.

My look for the day is this slip-like dress from Elie Tahari. The key point on this dress is the lace panel on the top of the dress, and at the bottom hem. With a more classy silky look in the front contrasted by a knit fabric on the back of the dress allows for a light weight dress great for the humidity. However, I can see this with an oversized coat for the upcoming season.
 Paired with my Balenciaga boots with a cork heel to add a bit of edge to the whole outfit. Gold hardware from my shoes bring together the same look by matching my rose gold watch, and silver rings.
