Just The Basics

You don't always have to dress up like you just came out straight from a magazine cover. Sure, it's fun piling on those accessories and looking glamorous, but sometimes it's also nice to be simple. When people get used to seeing you so dolled up all the time, chances are they won't notice you anymore if you're wearing something extra special because they're used to seeing you so fancy on a daily basis.



That's why it's better not to overdo it every single day. That way, it will have more of an impact on people when you DO dress up extra nice.



Today, I chose to "stick with the basics" -- a blazer, shirt, leggings, and boots and I was good to go!


POWER SHOULDER BLAZER from Chick Flick
WHITE GRAPHIC SHIRT from Ten & Co.
LEOPARD LEGGINGS from Circles en Dots
BOOTS from The Shoe Lounge
CLEMENCE 35CM BIRKIN from Hermes

As you can see, I'm not wearing any accessories at all, which is strange because I rarely go out of the house without a huge chunky necklace lol. But I'm keeping it simple and classic today. A girl from school who loves to criticize me and my style told me that I do not have good fashion sense and that I simply "rely on accessories to look good". Well, I hope I'm proving her wrong with this ensemble. After all, photos speak louder than words ;)



It's best when you know your "safe" outfit combination -- that mix of those tried & tested go-to pieces that you can just throw on when you don't have enough time to think about your outfit. For me, it's definitely a blazer, shirt, and leggings. I've found it to be an unbeatable combo for me.


I know, I know. It's way too hot to be wearing boots here in the Philippines, even if it's December. But cut me some slack because I spent the day at the mall, and since it's an air-conditioned building, I figured wearing boots was acceptable.

  24. Hey Kylie!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the lovely comment. It's so funny that you said you were listening to "One For The Road" while looking at my blog because I just posted a new post about my Arctic Monkey's concert experience from last weekend. I was writing it when I got your comment, haha. My boyfriend is a HUGE Arctic Monkeys fan and he actually ran into Alex Turner on the street randomly, hours before the concert. Alex was taking a walk with Nick O'Malley and my boyfriend got to stop and chat with them for a bit. He was pretty starstruck! :)

    Have a lovely day,
    Carly

  27. Wearing boots is acceptable any time! Except for Ugg boots :) I don't have an outfit to put together if I don't know what to wear, I'm constantly trying on different outfits before I leave the house.. I need to find a tried and tested one!
