I've got a pretty consistent style going on now. I have 2 main colour palettes -
- Nude: mint/seafoam green, cream, brown, gold accents.
- Black: navy/mulberry, grey, black, silver accents.
Sometimes I wonder if my taste will change in the future. I'm trying to buy a lot more gold things to match. Here's some of the things I'm using to death at the moment, that goes with everything in my closet:
|Coach hobo, Kate Spade wallet|
I've had these for 3 years. The Kate Spade gold-plate is worn out. >_< I use the Coach for work.
|Rebecca Taylor leopard print tote|
This Rebecca Taylor leopard print tote was from a Japanese magazine. I use it on weekends. It's too cute! Leopard print is usually loud but I find that this isn't too attention grabbing and it's really cute!
|Marc Jacobs shopper|
I got this Marc Jacobs shopper from a Japanese magazine. I use it all the time to carry documents for work.
|Giselle Bundchen Ipanema sandals|
I wear this pair of sandals almost every weekend. It goes with absolutely everything! It dresses up casual tees and shorts, and matches maxi dresses/flowery dresses well. And it's waterproof (except for the ribbons), which is fantastic when I'm at the beach (easy to rinse off the sand).
|Accessorize straw flip flops|
I got these at an Accessorize sale for slightly over $10! Such a steal! They're really pretty and comfortable, the gold just blings things up in a subtle way, the pink adds a pop of colour, and the shells are pretty and give a beachy vibe. Love! I try not to wear them too much because they're rather fragile and the gold paint is already wearing off at parts though I've worn them about 5 times only.
And here's my favourite colour right now - mint!
|Typo mint satchel|
This is a satchel I bought from Typo for almost $50 if I don't remember correctly. Quality is pretty poor. I've been working for almost almost 3 years already so I think it's time I stopped using such low-quality faux-leather bags! The faux-leather started wearing off at the strap hooks (I carry some heavy things - my Kate Spade wallet is super heavy) after barely 2 months. I love the colour though! Mint and matte gold is too adorable!
|Hairband (not sure which brand), Accessorize bangle, shell necklace from the Philippines|
I've been wearing the bangle everywhere and everyone thinks it's real jade. It's a really pretty fake from Accessorize! I wear the shell necklace with maxis or flowery sundresses.
|Uniqlo knit lounge cardigan|
I bought this baby from Uniqlo on sale! It's so soft and furry and cuddly! <3 I will wear this on the plane when I go on another work trip in mid-May.
My favourite tank top that I can wear to the office and on weekends!
|GG>5 tri-colour tank top|
I like the way my style has evolved. I used to go with navy and black all the time, but after I started dyeing my hair brown a couple of years ago, I started to work towards a more cream/nude/brown palette which I find more different but still office appropriate. I like muted colours and pops of colour. I love mulberry and navy with black, and seafoam/mint with khaki/cream.
I'm really happy with all my stuff right now and I'm hoping to eliminate the other random stuff in my closet so that my clothes and accessories are more cohesive. Tomorrow's a public holiday and I'll be going out for some shopping, spa and to look at wardrobes!
Happy daze. :)
