COLOR CAMOUFLAGE

by Aileen Belmonte

Dress c/o CHOIES
ZARA Heels

This colorful, printed, cut-out dress from CHOIES is way too fun! I was worried it wouldn't stand out against this funky graffiti background, but I just couldn't say no to more color! I love the explosion of blues, pinks, and purples in these photos. It's probably not my usual style, but it does embody my love for keeping a young and happy aura.

SKY

VINTAGE Clutch Bag

You may have noticed that midi skirts have been stealing the scene on this blog. Now, I wasn't always a fan of wearing my skirts mid-length. I used to believe that it was either short or long, and that anything in between was kinda iffy. But as fashion has always proven, one must never say never 'til it's given a try. I've come to find a fondness for these midis, which easily show off a classic and lady-like silhouette. I'm especially attracted to bubble skirts, such as this gorgeous gray and ivory, satin piece created by ISUMI MELANIA, distributed by ASTO GROUP clothing. I love how it hugs around the waist, and balloons out to emphasize all the right parts. For girls like me, who are bit curvier on the bottom half, this type of skirt is perfect for us! Wouldn't you agree?

Midi skirts are on the more conservative side, which makes them a perfect match with tops that show a bit more. With the rise of daring cropped and backless tops, it's no wonder that these skirts are so popular. I paired my skirt with a textured cropped top from CHOIES clothing. I loved the play of modern and classic, as well as the interaction of different fabrics. The color palette though, I kept to a spectrum of blues and grays. Don't these hues remind you of a perfect sky? Not too bright, not too cloudy, which is just how this breezy outfit feels too! I hope you love it as much as I do.

SHADES OF GRAY

by Aileen Belmonte

Skirt from BAZAAR
AUSTRALIAN Pumps
Chique du Freaque shoe accessory c/o HEEL UP

Seeing things in grayscale somehow leaves a sophisticated and vintage feel in mind. While I'm in love with adding color to my wardrobe, a muted outfit can stand gracefully on its own. Perhaps it's because it reminds me of old, black and white films from the earlier half of the 1900's. I don't know much about them, nor have I seen a handful of those movies, but they do give an impression that men and women back then dressed to a more elegant and classic style. If that standard remained to be true today, it would be perfect!

Wanting to keep things vintage chic, I followed a conservative and classic silhouette, wearing a full pleated skirt, and a crew neck sweater. This MR. GUGU & MISS GO pug pulloever adds a quirky touch to contrast these serious hues. 

...And finally, my shoes. No, I don't have a new pair. Yes, these are my trusty black pumps. But if you noticed that huge bow around my ankles, that's all because of this little store called HEEL UP. Based in the Neatherlands, they conjured up the idea of giving your favorite shoes accessories of their own. Whoever thought of this is pure genius! It's like you have a new shoe everytime, and it's easy as pie to use! This pair is called CHIQUE DU FREAQUE. I think it went perfectly well to match the theme of my look! Wouldn't you agree? There are more designs, catering to different styles! Believe me when I say that you should check 'em out!
