*asian print & stripes*

boston fashion blogger, asian print outfit, stars stripes outfit, print mixing

i’ve been wanting to use this pretty asian print top ever since the days have become more humid & thought the stripes in this skirt perfectly resonated with the stripes in the swirly print.  today while running errands in harvard square, 2 girls totally noticed i did that & complimented me on my print mixing :)  always nice when someone else appreciates your attention to detail ^_^

*another* all white outfit???  i swear, i’m not so monochromatic all the time…just seems that way on the days when i actually have time for a photo.  hahaha!

loving these 2 relatively new, not yet worn clothing items…this white dress with deep v-neck & flattering side panel cutouts which are a bit much for day wear, however under this perfectly cropped length mesh sweater (for someone as short-waisted as i) it’s actually doable & not too risqué.  paired with my super old, but identically matched mesh heels, i’m ready for a nice dinner with friends out at the boston waterfront tonight ^_^

*white…hot*

boston fashion blogger, all white outfit, daenerys braids, white halter, shoemint sandals

the humid, gross summer we’ve been waiting for so long in boston is finally here & i, for one, am among those who do.NOT.like it.  if i wanted to sweat all the time, i’d move back to florida…hahaha!

pulling out more old lightweight white dresses certainly helps though.  while i like how easy breezy this dress is, it’s also literally 5 sizes too big.  easily solved with my trusty white halter that holds all that extra fabric in :)  file this under the category of “how to wear oversized clothing without actually having to get them tailored” bwahaha!

yet another black & white & pop of pink outfit :)  seems i’ve found my formula for the season ^_^  still can’t go without print mixing though…hence that fashion staple of summer stripes plus more unconventional & crazy tokidoki print, hahaha!

*going for the gold*

cream dress, gold necklace, large font necklace, cool necklace, yellow sandals

sometimes gold accessories seem passé…other times they’re white hot.  i’ve definitely been loving these large font word necklaces that i got recently…either bunched together or single use :)  speaking of hot & the return of humid, sweltering weather, the “cool” label was something i was not feeling today, hahaha ^_^

*basketball daenerys*

basketball, daernerys, targaryen, khaleesi, cosplay, philadelphia comic con, philly

it’s been a crazy busy week, so here’s a quick shot from this past weekend’s jaunt at philly comic con.  i actually had a really big new cosplay (costume play) i was going to debut, but my stupid wig didn’t arrive in time :/  oh well, that’s why i bring a backup…not fully in costume, but still in keeping with the spirit of comic con.  hence, say hello to basketball daenerys targaryen!  hahaha ;)

*polka dots with a pop of pink*

polka dot outfit, black white polka dots, pink sandals

nothing super exciting to say about my outfit today…except to comment on the origin of my polka dotted shirt.  you see, i pulled it out of the drawer & have *NO* idea where it came from.  haven’t gone shopping, thrifting or to a clothing swap recently, so no.clue.what.so.ever.  oh well…super cute right?

*white out*

all white outfit, white dress, white jean jacket

like florals for spring, all white for summer is not *that* revolutionary, but don’t we just love it!  i’ve always been a big fan of all white outfits & it’s been my personal mission to bring back the white pantsuit :) 

all white outfit, white dress, white jean jacket

however, a white blazer & matching pants would be a skosh much for daytime, so i’ll just make do with a more casual all white outfit - this ancient lightweight ruffly dress & jean jacket ^_^

*lace print & metallic*

lace print dress, metallic accessories, gold circle necklace, metallic sandals

this dress is super duper, mega, ultra old, but i’ve already had a pretty hectic monday, so for days like this, i’m grateful for easy & comfortable pieces that take no thought to throw on & accessorize :)  the epitome of oldie, but goodie :)
