The 90s have been on my mind lately. Though believe it or not, I'm often thinking of it. Plus at the moment, the 90s are also having a comeback as one of spring's hottest trends. Now I did grow up in the 90s, but I don't have a recollection of myself partaking in the fashion of the era since it was during the time when I was still young going to the mall shopping with my parents and hadn't identified fashion as a means for personal style yet. The reason I'm so intrigued by the 90s is because I like to draw inspiration from the grunge and effortless styling of the era as I did with today's look. I define my outfit as grunge glam since it's a bit feminine. Ditsy florals always make me think of the 90s and the knotted tee adds a casual vibe but is also reminiscent with the era as well.
Happy Monday! Hope you all have a great week!

Sharing some details only with this quick post. The other day I thought I'd try styling a crop top that's been left unworn for a few months after purchase. Now crop tops can be a tricky thing to wear, but I love the idea of them. My personal preference is to wear anything cropped with high waisted pieces because it sort of balances everything out. In this particular look, I first threw on some denim legging pants from Uniqlo that I could pull up in a high waisted manner. It was nice, but I felt a little bare so on came the men's cardigan because I do love to mix in a masculine feel whenever wherever. It's just one of my personal styling habits.
Hope you're having a good week!

The weekend is here and it's going to be a glorious one. I suddenly feel like heading to a far off place where reality can be put on the back burner. However, at the moment, I don't have plans for any trips. I wish I did though, but for now I'll live vicariously through the editorial above. The absolutely stunning, Arizona Muse, sports a variety of dresses, separates and boater hats that are summer perfection against what I could only guess is some beautiful European destination. When she happens to gaze off into the distance in a couple shots, it solidifies my wants and dreams to break away. Oh well, at least I can relax a little these next two days.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

I used to think that the print on my dress was lemon slices. It seemed likely at the time of purchase since this was a Spring collection release and I could see the color scheme being used for a lemon motif. However, just recently I found out they're actually.. wheels! I'm kind of ashamed I didn't know this earlier, but the print does add to the vintage feel the pearl neckline gives off. With an oversized camel cardigan thrown on to beat the early morning spring chill, I fused together a look that's both girly and casual to start my week.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Four months into the year and I find myself sparingly spending money on new pieces for my wardrobe unless they're basics or unique. This is actually a good thing because I am currently gathering piles of clothing I no longer wear for donating. It definitely gives me positive vibes knowing I'll be helping others and there will be less clutter for myself to deal with. However, my brain is always spinning with things I want, but technically do not need. I'm sure that goes for everyone, right? So with spring here and summer not too far along, there's three particular items on my lust list now:
1. Thick heeled ankle boots because I've worn down some booties I'd been wearing daily. These are the kind of boots I can rely on to withstand constant abuse while adding a few inches to my height and being comfortable as well.
2. High waisted swim bottoms because I'm loving the retro feel and can always go for high waisted anything anytime no matter what. I've been seeing them in lots of prints and solids all over the web and do intend on buying the floral one pictured above. I think they'd be super flattering for anyone too.
3. Low heeled flats because what's not to like about a pair of flats with a slight heel? There's comfort and the benefit of getting a few inches added in height once again so that gets my stamp of approval. Plus my feet have found extremely flat flats to be an annoyance in the past so I do try to avoid them.
How's your week going? Well, I hope.
