Look Recap.

Posted by Aura Charisse on December 13, 2017 at 3:05 AM
There’s no denying I go MIA every now and then from blogging, and it’s no secret that it’s because of medicine. Outside the blog, my life complelely revolves around medicine, as I pursue my dreams of someday attaining that MD. In life, there are always trade costs. To exhaust all my efforts and energy into med school means sacrificing some wee time away from the blog. Most times it’s frustrating ---- imagine stepping away from your craft that you’ve nurtured for almost 4 years (!!!) ----- but at the end of the day, I know my priorities and I believe it will all be worth it, truly and entirely.

In light of such truths and happenings, I’ve come up with this series, ‘Look Recap’. It’s simply a recap on all the looks I’ve shot and failed to upload on the blog. Better late than never, alright! Despite your girl hustling to get that degree, style will always be relevant. Here’s the first set of looks and I hope you like it!

This black and white ensemble was one of my outfits from my quick trip to Australia. I went to Gold Coast and Brisbane around May, so it was roughly winter there that time. It wasn’t drastically freezing as you’d expect though, so I’d say the weather felt more like spring with a little bit more breeze. I’m wearing this ribbed pseudo-turtleneck top with mildly ripped jeans and an oversized bomber jacket. I’ve written in my Instagram how I got my hands on this unique jacket, if you wanna find out, you can go check that out here. I’m also wearing my super comfortable, triple white Nike roshes, which was perfect for a lot of walking and traveling. As per usual, I topped off the look with a pair of retro sunnies.

Another black and white ensemble, I’m wearing this other pseudo-turtleneck top that I have. This time it’s cropped and paired with high-waisted flare pants. It’s true when they say style repeats itself and lately, I’ve been seeing those bell flares quite often. Wearing bell pants used to be my favorite as a preteen, so it didn’t take long for me to try out the style again myself. I’m actually wearing my previous jazz pants that I used to wear for dance training back in the day. Weird? I don’t think so. It provides the same look anyways --- and with a great deal of comfort! Resourceful? I’d like to think so. To tell you the truth, no one would have noticed hadn’t I mentioned it. Style should never be limiting, my dear readers!

This was one of those casual outfits I wore during days of errands. This is a tank, bandana-type top with a lovely blue pattern, which I wore over my white jeans. Pretty simple! It’s something to feel comfortable in whilst going around and about. I’m also wearing a pair of typical white sneaks, a white watch and also a basic white cap.

I really don't have much to say about this outfit other than it's an easy look for when I'm lazy! On days when I'm exhausted, I find myself settling with something simple. I like to keep it chic though by wearing an all black outfit. I find that there's nothing as bold as all black; just throw in different textures and your outfiit will slay! I'm keeping it interesting with my ribbed top, skinny bottoms, suede flats and patent leather sling. I also like to add accents of color and material in my outfit, such as this scarf that I wore around my head as a headband.

If there’s a color I low-key love, it has to be coral! It’s the kind of shade that I love for lipsticks, blushes and specific pieces of clothing, like this top I’m wearing. Despite it being simple, I find that the coral shade makes it much more pleasant and stylish. It also complements the soft, flowy material quite perfectly. This is pretty old already, to be honest --- if you remember my very first post when I launched this blog, I wore this very same top in one of my first looks --- but I kid you not, the color of this top has stayed the same from the time I bought it years back; still that lovely coral shade. I partnered it with the same pair of white jeans, a pair of nude heels and the mandatory sunnies.

I’ve always loved white and rocking an all-white outfit is something I really look forward to. I feel like it’s such an effortless way to look classy, as long as you’ve got all the right elements. Detail is everything! I’m wearing this origami skort, which I decided to pair with something more soft and subtle, such as this simple flowy top. I finished the look with a pair of casual nude heels and a nice pair of sunnies. To keep things interesting, I’m wearing a bright classy red lip!
