WEEKEND VIBE: OPEN BACK

WEARING: Sir The Label Top, American Apparel Skirt, A.P.C Bag, Vans Sneakers & Galisfly Rings.

This weekend I took time off for myself. No cutting or sewing, and no freelancing. Yes, I could have finished a thing or two but needed some time, while the summer is still here, because let's face it fall and winter are just around the corner. I enjoyed my patio dinner date on Friday night, a bike ride to the beach on Saturday, brunch & catch up sessions with friends on Sunday; most importantly though: some quality time spent with my boy. I hope you all had a great weekend and are reminded that sometimes it is good to just do you and relax.

I was glad to be able to squeeze in time to shoot this post. Braless in a white top is a bit daring (for me anyway), but when the top is as nice as this Sir The Label than you do it. I've paired the outfit with sneakers to bring the sexiness down. For those who don't know, my hair has a natural wave and I usually straighten it, but I am trying to incorporate the waves into my style. Does anyone else find it hard? Curls are so feminine. What do you guys think?

TIPS ON WEARING ALL BLACK

WEARING: Hellen Tank Top, Sir The Label Skirt, Celine Sunglasses, Adidas, Mackage Bag & Breda Watch.

The colour black is the key of every good wardrobe. It's the one colour you can count on for any outfit and something easy to rely on, when you are busy and "have nothing to wear".

All black outfits, always look fresh; it may be the same outfit that you have worn 3 days in a row but no one questions your decision because it may just be a different black top or denim. There is no doubt that black is my-go-to colour when putting outfits together, it can look casual with basics or be complex and look very stylish.

Yeah I am guilty, all-black-everything is my solution to all outfit issues, my first, second and also my backup plan. Pair it with sneakers, sunnies and a cool bag, you're ready to take on the day. If you want to look sleek switch the sneakers for a more refined pair of shoes, a leather jacket and voila you are ready for a night out.

PS. I am obsessed with my new Celine sunglasses, I totally recommend them!
