Through Clear Mind



I'm crazy over clear and clean stuff lately, I even put the items (pictured above) to decorate my desk and boost up some mood. Some things change as we grow up, it maybe the style, taste, mindset, or even maybe dreams. I guess I'm changing quite a lot in style. I used to be this girl who wore everything that my mother bought or told me to wear, but now I'm thinking of color coordination, the precision of the design and how some stuffs match and look good together, the cutting or characteristics of the clothing piece, before build them into the outfit I will wear in freedom with my true attitude. Fashion is maybe not an ultimate dream or goal in my life, but since I decided to write on this blog somehow things got better. I can go out to the new places or events and social circle that I've never been before and got me one step closer to the goal, and most important... I learn to 'get in my own shoes' and realizing, fixing, and working toward to develop my true style (because - we know we're right - the way you look and dressed up present your personality and mindset at the first sight. Sometimes this sounded like a nonsense, but trust me that my life got happier ever since. Because you know, even though people around you didn't treat you the way you want...at least we still feel comfort and good about ourselves). 

And as some things on my mind grow up and change, I would like to change a bit or two details of this blog too... But now, let just talk about it later. 


On the picture:

KLAR acrylic choker and bracelet, Revlon base and top nail coat, a clear multi-function mini jar, The Body Shop face brush (the face can't be cleaner without this for sure), GlamGlow BrightMud eye treatment (one of my quick grab to save the day!), Pentel mechanic pencil (a simply chic tool I love since fourth grade!), and a plain acrylic case for the iPhone 4.

PS. If the sun shine longer this day, sure I can capture the picture better. Sigh.

How I Wear White Boxy Top (Final Part)


It was raining last three days and the day is not-so-humid anymore here in Jakarta. My summer journey this year with the lovely and versatile white boxy top will end soon (but well, there will be an excitement for cozy and thicker clothes this season, and the summer sun will always come back again, aite!). I decided to unbutton the back and wore the piece with a basic denim short this time, and top it off with a large baseball cap for the peak of the hot summer days that happened two last Saturday. I even couldn't bear with the heels so picking my old slip-on sneaker is the best choice to resist the day.






What I Wear

Cotton On white cropped boxy top, Gaudi ripped denim short, my boyfriend's baseball cap with leather peak, Converse red slip-on sneakers, New Look flower gem necklace with chunky chain, and Uniqlo knotted hair band in navy (worn as bracelet)



Another schedule-free day around, wore out the top with a straight skirt and the velvet black pumps. The straight grey skirt made up this look into a little bit office kind of, but since roamed around working boyfriend that day... I think why not to try out the outfit. Completed the look with an iridescent lip clutch and the out-of-the box acrylic choker to make it more fun. Thank God, the skirt is thick enough to resist the transition wind!

  




What I Wear

Cotton On white cropped boxy top, Accent grey skirt with knot detail, a gifted iridescent lip clutch, a pair of Charles & Keith Signature black velvet pumps, and a set of KLAR acrylic choker and bracelet


See you another year around, my favorite top of the summer... Xo

Roll to the Fall




I can't be more excited! The half part of the year maybe a little bit windy and wet, but what I love from it is to dress up in layers! My shopping list this season flown from classic pieces to sleek cut one to my all time favorite skirt. I'm all about neutral color currently, while in the other hand the pastel and cute bright color knitted sweater is quite tempting too... Well, if you're eyeing the same piece for the Fall/Winter wardrobe as I do, let's click here to shop and dig.

Stripes & Wide






I was thinking of the way Parisian dressed as I pull off the clothes out of the wardrobe this morning: minimalist and classic. It was also like wearing my obsession toward Breton stripes and colors related to the Navy that will never stop! Here I wore my old stripes tee with my related-new chic wide pants from Lovita Hilman, I'm still amazed with the slits surprise on the legs side. Which one do you like it better, to wore and style it this way or that way?



What I Wear

Zara stripes tee, LO by Lovita Hilman white Palazzo pants, a pair of Charles & Keith Signature black velvet pumps, black Aldo envelope clutch, a DKNY watch, and my boyfriend's fedora hat

How I Wear White Boxy Top #3








The fall wind has blown out slowly, yet I still can't get over my summer quick getaway. All of these beautiful vivid pictures we took few tranquil mornings ago on the Dreamland Beach (or known as New Kuta Beach) were seem like a dream I use to wake up to now. Paired the white boxy top with the black songket short for the morning run by the shore that day. Yes, the short was made from Bali traditional fabric. I received it two months earlier before summer from Bali based fashion label  Paulina Katarina, and decided to keep it for the right time. Its light airy material and simple cut turns out a summer rescuer! (PS: there are still few days of humidity in Jakarta before the rain falls, so I'm still stickin' out with the piece on the super hot afternoon like today...)




I recreate the look by adding up a necklace and changing the flip flops into mules for more downtown ready look.



What I Wear
Cotton On white cropped boxy top, Paulina Katarina Bali shorts in Songket black, Ipanema Lola flip flops, a pair of Charles & Keith nude mules, Uniqlo knotted hair tie in fuchsia, and KLAR acrylic bubble bracelet

How I Wear White Boxy Top #2






I just got back from my short-and-sweet summer getaway in Bali.  As I told before of how an unshakable backpacker I am, I finally decided to pack my favorite of the season along with two bottoms to match it. Yeah, I only brought one top in my bag... Could you imagine how crazy is that? (But well, I managed to buy white Barong shirt to wear flight home - and guess now shopping is the main reason why I insist to pack lightly.) So that day I wore the white boxy top and match it with a Palazzo pants from a new local designer Lovita Hilman, and went to this so called Secret Beach. I realized that this is the perfect outfit choice for the shot. The white-on-white look is a good contrast to the scenery of the black side cliffs and the bright sands. Nothing less, but wish I wore a pair of white bikini under so I could jump for a swim. And yes, by the time I write this, I'm missing the fascinating Pandawa Beach already... I'll be back for more!






What I Wear

How I Wear White Boxy Top #1







A white long-cropped boxy top is my most favorite piece from this year summer, no lie! I love how versatile and easy-going it is, especially it was made from the material that fit during these hot days and even on a night out. Get lots of outfit idea for it, so I decided to part them into a style diary series of How I Wear White Boxy Top. And this cheerful orange is the first one. The color and the fruit itself just so perfect to weather the summer.



What I Wear
Cotton On white cropped boxy top, Argyle & Oxford orange fruit brooch, unbranded orange cullotes, a pair of Charles & Keith nude mules, and KLAR acrylic bubble bracelet
