Current Combo Crush + Gingham Style

I am swooning over this color combo: teal/turquoise (?) and picnic red. Emerald might be Pantone's color of 2013 but I am digging this teal/turquoise. Pair it with red, and you are golden!

This Prada outfit itself is totally amaze. I mean, look at that coat! And gingham checks and metallic sandals to boot. It's like black velvet icing on double dark chocolate cake!

Op op op op oppan Gingham style.


Quirky Knits

Get ready for temperatures in 50s and 60s by indulging in some quirky (and chic) sweaters/jumpers. Sweater #3 with cat eyeglasses is already on its way to my closet! Cannot wait! These sweaters can be paired with jeans, cropped pants, pencil skirts, shorts, and most things that sit on your waist. 

The refreshing colors and patterns will give you a good break from the usual solid color sweaters you've always owned.

Checked In

Besides nursing my newborn, my only other hobby these days is gawking at street style pictures from New York, London and Milan fashion weeks. I am addicted to street style, and the addiction gets even worse when fashion weeks are in progress.

While getting my daily dose of street style from NYFW, I couldn't help but notice how 'major' checks were throughout the week. I wrote about this checked sweater from J.W. Anderson's pre-fall 2012 collection back in August 2012 but I could never lay my hands on one. Now winter is about to fade away, so if not a sweater, I might be tempted to indulge in J.Crew's Cafe' windowpane-check Capri pants. I am going to be all about graphic patterns and bold prints and colors this spring/summer people!

Shawl Collar Jacket

Coveting this jacket from Lela Rose Pre-Fall 2013. I love pretty much everything about this jacket: fabric, texture, colors, collar, and cut. I, of course, would not wear it with this pair of pants. I would wear it on a skinny denim or pant of some sort in a darkish color. Pointy toe flats or pumps will look just perfect.
