SPRING PRINT SPLASH

 by Aileen Belmonte

Sweater c/o YOINS
LEE Jeans
BASS Leather Loafers
VINTAGE Quilted Backpack
Bangle c/o LI'S CLOSET

Hi everyone! Still remember me? I hope you haven't lost all interest in my blog. With a few days out of the hospital, I actually had time to make this short outfit post. But come tomorrow, it's back to regular programming. I'm not expecting any downtime this month, so please wait patiently for my return. Hopefully, the holidays will bring me some sort of break. 

Anyway, I'll make this post short and simple. This outfit pretty much reflects how busy I've been lately. As you can see, I really didn't have much time for strategic planning and pairing of my clothes. Could it be? Have I evolved into a jeans and sweater kinda gal? I must say, it's a whole lot easier than thinking of a new outfit each time. So if you're always on the run, with the need to be in something comfortable and easy to move in, jeans are a choice that will never go out of style. Make this look more interesting by wearing an eye-catching print on top, like the one on this sweater from YOINS.COM. Making busy days casual chic with a little creativity!

HIGH AS A TIGER

Sweater c/o MR. GUGU & MISS GO
Skirt c/o BLACKFIVE
AUSTRALIAN Pumps
Statement Necklace c/o PRETTY LITTLE BLINGS

Psychedelic prints are beautifully complemented by plain colors. In this case, I stuck to a classic black skirt from BLACKFIVE.COM. You can probably pair this with almost any color of your choice. You may think it would be scary to put together so many colors in one look, but this could work to create something really fun! Personally, I think it would go great with a green or blue pencil skirt. Red would probably be a nice option too. Maybe some colors to stay away from are those in the same scheme as the main hue. For instance, I'd avoid wearing pinks and yellows with this top, just so I won't blind anyone on the way with too much brightness. As always, it's all about balance and feeling comfortable in whatever sytle, cut, or color you wear! 

Enjoy your styling!

SKY

by Aileen Belmonte

Visco-Elastic Cropped Top c/o CHOIES
Bubble Skirt c/o ASTO GROUP - ISUMI MELANIA
PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE Heels
VINTAGE Clutch Bag

You may have noticed that midi skirts have been stealing the scene on this blog. Now, I wasn't always a fan of wearing my skirts mid-length. I used to believe that it was either short or long, and that anything in between was kinda iffy. But as fashion has always proven, one must never say never 'til it's given a try. I've come to find a fondness for these midis, which easily show off a classic and lady-like silhouette. I'm especially attracted to bubble skirts, such as this gorgeous gray and ivory, satin piece created by ISUMI MELANIA, distributed by ASTO GROUP clothing. I love how it hugs around the waist, and balloons out to emphasize all the right parts. For girls like me, who are bit curvier on the bottom half, this type of skirt is perfect for us! Wouldn't you agree?

Midi skirts are on the more conservative side, which makes them a perfect match with tops that show a bit more. With the rise of daring cropped and backless tops, it's no wonder that these skirts are so popular. I paired my skirt with a textured cropped top from CHOIES clothing. I loved the play of modern and classic, as well as the interaction of different fabrics. The color palette though, I kept to a spectrum of blues and grays. Don't these hues remind you of a perfect sky? Not too bright, not too cloudy, which is just how this breezy outfit feels too! I hope you love it as much as I do.
