One time, I was asked on Formspring if I ever had those times when I "just put on the simplest and most basic of outfits"--and it got me thinking what it meant to wear basic/simple outfits. Maybe it would be wearing a top and shorts/pants. But I've seen loads of those on Lookbook and they still ended up looking fantastic. I mean, I do dress down. Like the shirt and jeans, if that's what it means. But apparently, it's not very evident on my blog? :p And then it hit me, you can get away with wearing "basics" without looking too frumpy if you have the right pieces to work with :)
I've said this a few times in some of my posts that I'm a big accessories girl. I collect, I pile, I store. I mean, let's face it, my style is quite normal. I suppose. It's just that I almost always have statement accessories on. And when it's not the accessories, it's just a striking piece of clothing such as this purple pants I'm wearing.
Oh, and I guess you can also consider this robot shirt as striking too. I cut off the sleeves to be summer-friendly and also to have that edgy, care-free feel.
