Linen and Lace



This photo is for those who tease that I always seem to put on a fiercey-pouty kind of look in my look book photos.
Suck on that! Sweet ang peg! :))





BLINDxx cropped top ** Accessorize Necklace**WE Empire Bracelets** Pierre Cardin Trousers**clutch from Chard

So for the first time since grade school, I wore a REAL cropped top and paired it with something lowrise. I ended up covering my belly with books while walking around but still having fun feeling funny while I was at it. :)) It also didn't help that I had two HUGE unplanned dinners that night-- monggolian with the boy and thai with the family. To make things even worse, I've been having allergies on the legs since my last post. As you can see, I opted for these linen trousers to cover up. I forgot the fact that it was linen... extra itchy against my already itchy skin. Too many wrong deciscions! I hate having to hurry while I'm dressing up in the morning. 

Since my neutral palette was so earth-toned, Le me decided to accessorize with a classic gold necklace instead of my usual boho trinkets to veer away from looking all too costume-y and shabby.  It's just relaxed and  organic in the right amounts. Even if the colors are almost a bore (no contrasts, no color pops) the details took center stage and kept it subtly interesting.. like this lace layer on my bandeau and the gold embellishments on the pants, highlighted by the neck piece. What do you think? :)

On another note, I've made updates on my blog, please please check it out and tell me your thoughts. I Compiled my photo journals and my styling works with links to the atcual posts so it's easier to follow through.  I've been waiting for ample time to overhaul this blog but I don't think that's going to happen so I'll just take it one upgrade at a time. I can't wait till the work is complete so it can be ready for give-aways and sponsors. So exciting! :)

Have a good week, bichasss! :)
