Bared



(findersKEEPERS Say It Loud top & I Surrender bra (S/O)/ ShopBop, Black skirt & cap/ H&M, 

Hello October!

I've been preoccupied with school this few months, therefore I have not been blogging regularly. I chose this findersKEEPERS pleather top with an open back because I liked the simplicity of the overlap straps. Pairing a bra under this kind of top that exposes the back can be tricky, unless you just wear stick-ons, stickers or go sans bra altogether. Under the same label, I found this soft cup bra with delicates straps so I thought it would go well with bare-back tops like such. Unfortunately, the I Surrender bra is sold out on ShopBop... but they have a huge selection of other bras! 
   
For this outfit, I went for a more sporty look with the cap and sneakers combo. I was trying to make my ensemble more casual and downplay the slightly risqué top. But honestly, I just wanted to feature my new sneakers on my blog! They were a birthday present and it took me so long to find a pair of Rosherun's that I liked. I scoured the Nike branches but no avail, only ugly colourful ones were in season. So I looked online for about a week and finally found these grey ones available at a UK shoe site, FootAsylum. I actually wanted the speckle model but they were sold out everywhere sigh.

Zebra





( White mens t-shirt/ COS, Black midi skirt/ Qoo10, Pearl statement necklace/ OASAP, Sneakers/ TopShop

I really have no inspiration for this blog post title, so I shall name it after one of my favourite animals, the zebra. In actual fact, I only like the zebra purely because it is black and white.

I kind of regretted choosing this necklace from OASAP, because it took me so long to style an outfit around. So, I kept it to the basic colors throughout, you generally can't go wrong with a black and white outfit. I had a hard time choosing what to wear because every dress I wore with this necklace made the look outfit too dressy. The necklace itself is somewhat formal and elaborate, so I didn't want to look too dressed up. So I dressed the necklace down with a plain white tee and sneakers. But I still manage to balance the casual/formal look with this black midi. I love the volume and texture of this skirt, not to mention the practical pockets!
