SLEEK





WEARING: Zara Blazer, American Apparel Turtleneck Crop Top (LOVE!) , DIY Skirt and Aldo Shoes

Not sure if anyone can notice the subtle changes in my blog layout but there are a few. The reason I did not post last week is that I have been busy with my friend Aina. She is a Communication Designer who loves fashion, minimalism and geometric shapes as much as I do, she collaborated with me to upgrade and update my blog's new sleeker look. She added triangles (my favourite shape) in a few places that we saw fit and she responded to every email, text or question promptly and professionally. I am beyond happy with the results. Thank you Aina! You guys should check her work here <3

I wanted the upgrade to reflect more of my personality and taste. Sleek, minimalistic, geometric and edgy in some instances. I hope people that visit my blog can recognize those traits, and the blunt but sincere opinion that takes form here. People change, life changes and I hope I keep on progressing, remaining true to who I am and what I like. Not too long ago I wouldn't be caught dead wearing white but look at me now, my wardrobe had an invasion of white pieces and I couldn't be more thankful. Thankful for being open to try something different and to identify myself with that which is both old and new.

  49. awesome look, the skirt's fab!
    and I get what you say about the white being something new into your style, I tend to change my likes and dislikes a lot... but in essence, I think my style remains, I just dress according to my mood or the vibe I'm feeling at the moment.. but everyone in fact knows I'm sort of a chameleon in terms of style.. as long as I don't lose that edgy/unique factor that makes me stand out from the crowd then it's all good, right?
    And you definitely have a signature style going on, whether you go from black to white.. it is there.
    stay cool!

  63. These are so beautiful! I love your hair like this & that skirt is killer, the super high cut-out/split makes it so attention grabbing & is such an interesting detail!
    I usually steer clear of white also, but recently I've found myself wanting to buy quite a few white pieces too. I'm even falling in love with the head-to-toe white looks I keep seeing, I doubt I'd go for an all white look myself, but it's definitely fueling my need to buy some white pieces! I think a perfect white shirt is going to be the first on my list, but now after seeing these I really want a white blazer too!

    PS: Love the re-design! It perfectly reflects your style & the aesthetics of the blog too, your friend did an amazing job! :)
