Colour Blocking


Top, heels and sunnies: H&M// Coat and shorts: Asos// Bag and Necklace: Stradivarius

Yep, I guess now you know where I get most of my basics from. I have a whole closet dedicated to these fast fashion brands, and nope, I'm not sorry. Of course I try to get some special pieces too, once in a while. But till these brands stop being accessible, not pricey and of course, filled with amazing pieces, I can live off fast fashion indefinitely.

My latest outfit is a nod to the color block trend, which, judging from all the 70's prints circling around nowadays, I guess have fallen out of fashion. But there are few ways more effective than color blocking to draw attention to your outfit. Today I paired up blue, orange, tan, white and black, with the only print coming from my tortoise shell frames, and the crochet texture of the shorts. Since work is more smart casual than formal, this was somewhat acceptable for a day at the office. We took the pictures around the man-made lake in Macau. Remember my comment about a grown-up purchase me and Leon were finally planning on buying? Yep, it's a car. It's secondhand I bought off a good friend, but it does its job, which is to enable us to drive around from our very far home to the city. Groceries, going to work, and yep, even blogging has become easier. And maybe now I'll get to show you more of my little city. I think the trunk would make a great mini wardrobe, tee hee, shhh...don't tell my husband!

So what do you think? To color block or not to color block? What colors would you pair together? See you soon,

  6. Definitely to color block. Love the coat, if only I could just pull it off you. The whole combo works. Lucky you my work is formal attire only. Congrats on the car, as long as it does the job it's great.

  7. So so nice! This sounds familiar to me: I always like to look for basics at the shops from H&M or asos as well :)
