As much as I love my blacks and whites, I am making an attempt at adding a little bit of colour to my summer palette. First by introducing this rosy nude smocked off-the-shoulder top—I am having a sleeves moment and love the voluminous puff sleeves that can be worn down or pulled up to sit on the shoulders.
If there’s one thing that I would never tire of, it would be neutral. The shade transitions across all four seasons and pairs well with practically everything. Now that the weather is warmer, I’m excited to shed some of those thick layers in exchange for lighter pieces. I’m also welcoming the warmer season by experimenting with some new trends.
Neutrals have always played a big part in my style and wardrobe so I couldn’t be happier when I saw that it was one of the biggest trends this spring season. Designers like Burberry, Max Mara and Chloé lit up the runways in head-to-toe neutrals.
If there’s one thing that adulthood taught me, it’s that I should be more smart with my shopping. It’s great to purchase fast fashion and to stay atop of the trends, but I always find that these are pieces that I wear no more than a handful of times. I mentioned in my last post that one of my goals this year is to shop for items that can double as weekend wear, and to invest in quality pieces.
Looking back on 2018 and reflecting on the last twelve months, it was likely one of the best years I’ve had. I had the chance to rekindle my love for two of my favourite cities—New York and LA, and explore new places that I’ve only daydreamed about.
When it comes to our home, I am a strong believer that it should be a space that is warm, calm and welcoming. Ever since we added the Vitruvi stone diffuser in our home, it has helped with exactly this. More recently, I was introduced to the brand’s roll-ons and it has become a daily ritual for me, especially when I’m in need of a moment of stillness.
Now that winter is officially underway, I’ve been on a lookout for pieces that are practical for the temperature change without compromising my personal style. Investing in timeless and transitional pieces is the general rule that I follow to achieve this.
There’s nothing more comfortable than unstructured, loose-fitting pieces for the season. I know that I’ve talked about the art of balance previously, but there is something so satisfying about taking comfort to the streets.
