Clear blue skies and creamy neutrals.


Clear blue skies, no work, some sun.  Last monday seemed like a perfect day and I needed an outfit that spelled "holiday". What comprises most of my holidays when not on a good beach vacation? Errands, a little chill time somewhere with great company/drinks/bites, and a little bit of work somewhere nice and pleasant to make me feel productive. That day specifically, I needed something rugged enough to let me run around to do my errands, pretty enough for a nice merienda date, but decent enough for a casual meeting. Outfit of choice? Jeans. You heard it.

When it comes to day looks, I like to keep it refreshingly minimal and as per usual, effortlessly chic. I threw on faded jeans (these are actually lightly stamped with flowers but you can't see them because my photos are too bright) and a semi-loose tank top for the ultimate laid back effect. Then I injected some feminine class into it by choosing the pastel and sequined kind. I just had to finished it up with white my new favorite pointed shoes and some gold and brown accessories here and there.

These days, this is all you'll ever see me in as far as arm party is concerned (okay maybe a little bit more but JUST a LITTLE BIT). I'm glad minimalism is back, I'm too tiny to over-accessorize and I hate fuss.

These jeans have been laying in my closet untouched for some time now because I've had hoarded better fitting ones. But that day, by some alien intervention, I just randomly pulled the pretty thing out, folded it up and began working my way around it. I really enjoyed how it turned out. Mommy/ boyfriend jeans are something I've never tried before, and this is my closest attempt so far. Haha.
  White pointy shoes took Spring Summer 13' by storm and I admit but I'm a little late but it took me so long to find the perfect one! This still doesn't fit me perfectly after inserting two damn corks inside but who cares, it's my favorite! I like how it took my slightly loose jeans to chic perfection. I can't imagine pairing it with anything else!

Nothing like pastels/ creamy neutrals, light colored jeans, and some white and gold for a perfect sunny day off! :)

That afternoon, we've finally finished making my logo and business cards for Atelier de Aurora, my architectural design firm in the making (where I'm a sole practitioner AND my only employee as of the moment. lol. baby steps, baby steps! ) next up on our list should be the more formal portfolio and the renovation of our tiny helpers bedroom turned into my temporary home office. Well, it's worth a shot. My fingers are crossed, intensely, and so are my arms, legs, feet, and, what else?

I hope everyone's having a dandy day! :)
