Crisp White.

You can never go wrong with a crisp white button-up, it can be styled for formal and casual occasions, making it the perfect effortless statement piece. I've styled a casual counterpart before here.

Paired with a lace bra-let peeping through adds a feminine touch and is perfect for those day to night transitions. As I had a meeting earlier I wore the shirt buttoned up, then undid them again whilst running my errands, versatility at its best!

Despite the odd little details here and there I finished the look with these statement flats. From the coral colour pop to the spike detailing, it's an added edge that completes this clean cut look. I kept things minimal in the jewellery department and stuck with these current faves - I love the delicacy they exude and have them on constant rotation.

Rustin' Fresh.

Despite the heat I've been eager to reach for more autumn inspired pieces, it's safe to say I'm ready to bid farewell to summer...for now. 

I've learnt that it's critical to carry a jacket or cover-up around Hong Kong due to the arctic blasting A/C's; therefore whilst shuttling in-between, it's simpler to tie the jacket around my waist. It's a win-win sit. due to the convenience and edgier vibes it adds to my look. 

The colour rust is a beautifully rich warm tone that can range from pinkier salmons or earthy browns. Through the season I've noticed it slowly creeping back in some collections, safe to say it's going to be a hit for autumn (think crisp fall leaves!) Avoid looking 'heavy' by pairing with lighter colours for contrast. I'm obsessing over all the little details every piece is contributing, from the distressing on the knees to the contrasting lace-up ribbon. It's not my usual approach to mix so many colours and textures into one look, but the clashes work out pretty well don't you think?

A cleanse is always good for both the mind and the body, be it a detox or a lifestyle change it can induce a good dose of much needed fresh perspective. 

As mentioned previously, the 70s are making a comeback this season which introduces a lot of fun silhouettes to experiment with. My personal favourite to date is the relaxed masculine / feminine approach. 

This loose cami and tailored pants pairing are set to perfection through the elements of finer details. Although there's no obvious emphasis in silhouette, the pieces do add a subtle hint of femininity here and there; jewellery has been kept to a minimal with this delicate ring combo to compliment the intricate lacing on my back. To add a dimensional contrast to the look, I've finished with a pair of structured pointed courts, similarly I think this would also work well with a pair of monochrome trainers

Experimentation is always good, whether the outcome is good or bad, it's a learning curve which in turn we only gain and grow from. Don't be afraid to hit refresh and become BL_NK once again.
