Fashion,

Back to Basics

Heya guys!

The days have been a bit bright lately, and sun-loving me wouldn’t even dream of wasting this kind of weather. So what did I do? I put together this pretty simple and laid back look, which is quite far from basic despite what the title may mislead you into thinking. πŸ˜‰

Simple is what I’ve been working with lately, as I’ve realised we tend to over-complicate things a lot. I’m not just talking about outfits. Although one should make a point to remember Coco Chanel’s famous words of advice: “Take off the last thing you put on before you leave the house.” Even when it comes to blogging, I find myself overthinking about what to post or write on, what pictures are good enough to share and so on. When really, I should just be having fun doing what I love.

For this look, I pretty much took basic items from my closet that I believe any woman should have. I mean, I don’t think a denim skirt will ever go out of fashion, or at least, it’ll keep coming back. As for the kicks, if you’re an avid fan of jogging, running or sports in general, you’ve definitely got a pair. A simple chiffon blouse and cute backpack are must-haves as well. Just put them together and you’re good to go. πŸ™‚
