Hi everyone,

To continue with the Summer outfit series that I have shared in the earlier blog entries,  I have here another interesting style tip for you to play with colors, textures in this Summer.

Knowing that Summer is all about bright and vibrant colors, we should not hesitate to try on many different outfit patterns and colors at all. With that said, I find it's perfectly acceptable if suddenly one day, someone who never wears colorful outfit before decides to wear color-block. To me, the most exciting thing to do is the opportunity (or challenge) to play with different colors I have in my wardrobe, to create something different from the same old things.

Last week, I decided to bring back color-block as I haven't been wearing this for sometimes.  The feeling is like missing an old friend.  Well, sort of. 

Nevertheless, as usual, it took me 15-20 minutes to find out what to wear.    

When I was about to give up the idea of color-blocking, I saw the blue skirt hiding at the bottom of the wardrobe. It saved my day! :D  

After finding my principal piece, I then slowly looked for what color to go with the blue, what accessories, shoes I should wear etc... The following steps were just pieces of cake. 

Balance rule applied, I accessorized with blue belt and yellow & gold bracelets. Alternative option could be yellow belt & blue accessories. 

Falling leaves added more vintagey feel to the picture. It reminded me of a beautiful song "Autumn Leaves" sang by Eva Cassidy. I loved the song so much that I even had a video of myself dancing to it few years back. I looked so "raw", lolz.

Blue skirt: BEBE- Similar here and here
Tank top: ZARA- Similar here
Blouse: ZARA - Similar here and here
Shoes: ZARA (old)- Similar here and here

If you ask me where did I get the inspiration from for each outfit pairing? I would say it all comes from nature: the yellow leaves, the blue sky, the green trees...THIS is my best resource whenever I run out of the idea. I guess, sometimes we just need to slow down our pace or even to stop for a while and observe what is around us, there are so many beautiful things we should be able to see and appreciate. That explains why I love having my Sunday morning at Starbucks by myself, doing nothing except people watching and relaxing. Life is good!
