As I mentioned in the previous blog entry Silver & Gray, I'll be dressing the back-to-basic style a couple of times more before I come back to the fancy and girly me. My obsession with the laid-back style continues to grow, and I don't know how to stop it. In fact, I don't want to. I enjoy the less-is-more approach and find myself passionate by the most neutral colors. Those hues like white, beige, and brown were so unattractive to me before, are now my crush. Is it weird that somebody who loves vibrant colors so much can switch to earthy shades within a blink of an eye and never look back? These photos are perfect to elaborate my point. 

I have beige polka dot denim jeans and the Ash Queenie brown sandals for almost two years, but they never had a chance to make it on my blog. Not even once. Last Friday, I saw these "boring" Jeans hiding at the corner of my wardrobe, and the sandals left unnoticed in the shoes closet. I decided to bring them out to see some sunshine. Who knew that they could make such a perfect "couple"? Because of the slim cut of the polka dot jeans, I wanted to balance the tight fitting bottoms with a loose boyfriend buttoned shirt. My hair was pretentiously messy for a relaxed and chic appearance. 
I didn't think it was my best outfit, but the photos seem to prove me wrong. Through these photos, I learned an old-but-important lesson: Never take things for granted and always appreciate what we have. I guess I should start looking at the old clothes and shoes in my closet and remembering why I love them in the first place. 

Do you have any clothes that are left unwanted and are crying out for your attention? What will you do?
