Boo


Halloween is almost here and I never really celebrated halloween because it was not a very popular thing to do back in Bali. I do love the idea of trick or treating (imagine all the candies and chocolates!!!) but the sad truth is I think I'm a little too old for that. I've spotted some houses with the halloween decorations and I have to say, people in America takes halloween very seriously, those houses with amazingly carved pumpkins, spider webs, little ghosts, and all that jazz. I don't know what I'm going to do on halloween yet (if I'm doing anything at all). But here's a super easy halloween inspired nail art for you!

What are you going to do on Halloween?

White Jeans

White jeans is something that I find hard to style. Why? If you have shorter legs like I do, you'll know that it's though to make it look flattering and let's face it, I'm scared that I'll spill things on it (the reason I have my Tide to go with me at all times). I decided to wear it with these loafers that I love way too much and talk about way too often that elongates my legs and make the jeans look flattering. I have to say that white jeans look great with heels but let's face it, I don't have the energy to walk around in heels all day. And then, I threw on some stripes t-shirt (that I wear too often, just like my loafers) and long knitted cardigan to make everything look more relaxed.

How do you style white jeans?

Camel and High-Waisted


Messily tucked in loose white button-up, high-waisted shorts, and camel coat/blazer. Not quite autumn yet, but it's definitely cooling down — finally.

I did a summer wardrobe staples a few months back and I really enjoyed making it. So here are some of my autumn staples.

Outerwear
1. Camel coat — I had this on my wishlist and my sister kindly got it for me as a birthday present. It's more like a long blazer than a coat and I'm sure I'll be wearing this loads even in the winter because the winter here is not as cold as other places.
2. Chunky cardigans — I've been looking for one of these since last year but I never really make the purchase. I was talking to my friend about me needing a cardigan that's long enough and cozy enough to wear on daily basis and few hours later, we found this cardigan. I tried it on and it fits like a glove.
3. Leather jacket — the jacket that I love too much. A good friend of mine got me this jacket last year before I moved here and it's a definite staple for me.

Tops
1. Light weight sweater — there are those days where I don't think thick sweaters are necessary so light weight sweater is a must.
2. Cable knit sweater — one of my favorite kinds of sweater. They keep me warm and they give plain outfit some interest.
3. Flannel — when I think of autumn one thing come to mind: flannels. It's probably one of the most versatile items in my closet; I can wear it as top, layering piece, or tie it around my waist.

Bottoms
1. Black jeans — I DIYed this pair of jeans to give it more relaxed feel and all I did was ripped one of the knees and I cut the leg openings because they were too long and I like the unfinished look.
2. Grey jeans — these jeans are one of the comfiest jeans or bottoms in general. And I think wearing grey jeans make an outfit more interesting.
3. Denim — comfortable, simple, and goes with everything.
4. Patterned skirt — a great way to add more color to my lately-very-plain-outfit. All I need is just throw on some black tights if it's getting too cold.

Shoes
1. Loafers — the easiest way to make everybody think you put a lot of thoughts into your outfit when really all you do is throw on a pair of loafers and they're something you can wear all day.
2. Flat boots — they're not ankle boots but they're not as tall as my other boots, but just as versatile as my other boots.
3. Bright trainers — do you the theme here? hint: comfortable shoes. Bright trainers are one of the easiest ways to add more colors to an outfit and they are perfect for those days filled with errands.


What's your autumn wardrobe staples?
