OOTD :: of stripes and neutrals and not much to say



This outfit is so basic, it doesn’t need that second detail collage.

After all, it’s just a striped bodycon dress, a white denim jacket and a pair or nude pumps; I doubt you need to see anything up close.

Not that I’m saying it’s a boring outfit, however. It’s just simple. And sometimes, simple is all you need to lift your spirits. That, and a fun new filter to play with.

Oh, oh, oh! Guess what? I just remembered I wanted to join Whitney and Alex for their first ever hosted linkup! And Whitney’s tasked us to “take one, pass it on” on the following elements: striped shirt, black shorts, a printed scarf, oxfords and blush pink. I thought I wouldn’t be able to participate because I already had this whole week planned out, but lookit! Stripes? Check. Blush? Check. That’s more than one! And I didn’t even do it on purpose!

Serendipity, thou art my saviour!

Anyhow, I end my week of trends with a bit of a whimper instead of a bang. Stripes – the pattern du jour – aren’t exactly trendy. They’re more classic than anything else. I suppose I could’ve thrown on a statement necklace – a bubble necklace, even – which is the epitome of “trend”, but that would defeat the purpose of “simple”, yeah?

Vive le vendredi!

  1. An easy, classic look. I think this is great.

  2. You can never go wrong with simple and classic! I’m so glad you were able to link-up 🙂 P.S. Was it really sunny when you took these pictures or just that new filter? Either way, your pictures made me miss the warm sun on my face!

      ‘Tis the filter, my friend, and I’ll trade you my sun for your gloomy skies any day. I’m tired of the heat; it makes me irritable. >.<

  3. Simple yet chic look! The white denim jacket is a great item and a breath of fresh air from darker hues. Great outfit! – Lena

      Ah, glad you appreciated that. I could’ve gone regular denim but did feel the black of the dress warranted a lighter touch.

  4. Simplicity for the win!

    So, are blush and nude the same thing? If so, I “passed on” 2 items too. 🙂

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
