Outfit: North-Northwest

Embroidered blouse: Dezzal ~ Compass crop top: Tally Weijl ~ Ombre shorts: second hand ~ Platform boots: Demonia

Hi everyone!
Hope your weekend was super fab :) I have a lot of old faves for you today, the only new item is this beautiful blouse with lace details. Now you could obviously wear this blouse with some formal pants, jeans or leggings to create a versatile look suitable for work, having dinner with friends or family and so on. As I created quite a few formal / rather minimalist looks lately I decided to do something different here though. I wanted to give the blouse the look of a light jacket or caridgan as part of a fun, laid-back outfit. Whenever you're opting for this kind of style you're lucky as there is something like an "outfit formula" to create a variety of outfits that always work. The combo high waist shorts + fav top (crop top, band tee...) + jacket / cardigan is always comfy and creates a flattering silhouette. Some platforms make the look a bit grungier. Pop on your fav piece of jewelry as well as a cute hair accessory and you're totally good to go. Once you've put together a look like this you can easily switch one or more of the items and create a whole bunch of outfits without putting too much effort into it. Feel free to add a little more color than I did here :D I just felt like recreating the colors of the stormy sea to go with the compass top. And of course one of my favorite material combos is making an appearance again here - lace and distressed denim :)

Do you guys have "outfit formulas" as well? What's the look that always works for you?

  1. Wow, totally fell in love with the combo of shorts + tee! Those platforms are pretty tempting too.
