I am now no longer in Tokyo, and I'm spending the rest of the summer in Philly. Along with writing for my blog and for CollegeFashionista, I'll being doing an internship here and I'm planning to get a job. I know I mentioned in an earlier blog post about how I would do the Parsons x Teen Vogue program, but that may be delayed depending on how busy I get. Either way hopefully it'll be a productive summer!
As the title suggests, I aimed for simplicity in this outfit. It is simple with less patterns and accessories as usual, nevertheless it's all in the details. I've also always loved the combination of navy blue and white. I think they complement so well don't you think?
I love the detailing on this navy blouse. The white collar and the zipper neckline really makes a difference to it. It stood out to me right away when I first saw it. The collared blouse makes it a classic but the zipper adds a little twist. Its definitely something you can dress up and wear formally or dress it down with, say a pair of jeans.
Lastly, I also wanted to keep the emphasis on my lace up flats! Lace ups are super trending right now, which I'm sure you were aware of, so how could I not join the trend. I know you probably can't tell from the picture, but the flats are made of velvet material. The velvet makes it perfect for wearing it in the colder seasons (if its not too cold). The only con of lace ups or at least the particular ones I'm wearing, is that it is troublesome to put on and off and if not tied right the laces come undone easily.
This was a fairly short post than usual, but keep an eye out for my next one! I've got some great summer style shots coming up! aka higher quality photos.
