/Linen + Suede/


This vintage linen blazer has got to be one of my favorites from my new agglomeration of vintage blazers. I've recently become more inclined to dressing in tonal color-on-color, mixing separates made of various material of the same color palette (this outfit is a mixture of linen, polyester, and suede).

This week has gone by surprisingly quickly: fulfilling daily routine responsibilities, watching new episodes of Breaking Bad and Entourage, sneaking in a late night movie (The Rise of the Planet of the Apes - which turned out to be a pretty good movie), meeting friends for a quickie mid-week drinkie, trying out a new fitness program (it's been a year since I've last worked out so this was indeed long overdue), and contemplating painting the walls of my room. I'm leaning more towards no (since my place is rented), but redecorating is at the top of my priority list these days.

Scalloped shorts and skirts have been on my shopping list for quite some time, and it just so happens that I now have a pair of both in the same coral color. It's always nice to see a pop of color in an everyday outfit during the summer, most especially for me since I usually stick with black or neutral colors.


This knit sweater is one of my favorite pieces to wear all year round due to its versatility, the fact that it already looks worn out, and its high level of comfort. It's definitely an added bonus that it manages to keep me cool with its large mesh holes.

/Balmain Resort 2012/


Balmain's 2012 Resort line has me inspired in so many various ways. One of the main things I love about Balmain is their ability to mix feminine and masculine inspired pieces and top their looks off with subtle edginess.

Some of my favorite pieces include the printed jacket (in the first picture), the leather jacket, the long, open black skirt with the inner mini skirt, and the white blazer with the silk black collar. I've been looking for something similar to that one, but no luck so far.

This whole past week has been really tiring. I caught bronchitis once again due to the crazy rainy/chilly weather and the sad fact that my lungs can't take it. Hopefuly next week I'l finally be able to post some of those vintage blazers I've been raving about for the longest time.

Hope you have a great weekend!
