Taking a break from all the Dubai travel posts! Haha! Here's a quick style post for a change of pace.
It's been a while since I've been in shorts and I think it's pretty much a struggle now to wear anything else! The heat has been insane which makes me wish we were back in those sweater-worthy February days.Today's style post is all about basics (No surprise there. LOL) and how today's trends actually helped modernize these timeless staples!
I can't say enough good things about this sweatshirt from Forever 21. It's something we've seen since forever (Pun unintended.) but F21 added these pockets with a shiny silver zipper enclosure that gave it a subtle accent and a bit more character. These hidden little add-ons are what I live for. Haha!
I don't really know why I was so drawn to it but it's such a simple design that ironically can't be seen anywhere else! Plus, this sweater doesn't have fleece lining which is a good thing so it can double as a top on cool days. It is, however, thick enough to warm you up as needed!
Also, current favorite watch is the classic Diver watch of Oxygen Paris! I've always wanted my own ever since I saw the likes of David Guison and Camille Co sport these a few years back and it's just been so expensive I couldn't wrap my head around the idea of actually getting one. Luckily, on my last trip to Paseo at Laguna, they were on sale! Half off!! I couldn't turn that down so I got myself this gold/bronze/maroon piece. I can't get over how unique the colorway is! No regrets. Absolutely no regrets.
You know boots are perfect when they *still* look good on short people wearing shorts. It's been my experience that I cannot pull off the "shorts with boots" look like other people do. I always end up wearing low cut shoes because high cut shoes threw too much attention to the legs and somehow made me feel like my legs were twice their size! I later realized this was because they made me look shorter than I already am. So amazed though that this isn't the case with my Palladium boots. I smell a #HolyGrail award.
