4 Back to School Looks (Part II)

As requested, another round of Back to School Looks! Flat-lay is a pretty gruelling but fun process, and I tried to keep each look as the type of thing I used to wear to my university classes. Wearable, comfortable and school-appropriate. Things that are easy to wear for long periods of sitting down and catching public transport. I hope you enjoy and perhaps find some inspiration :-)

Look 1: PREPPY - Supre crop, thrifted pleated mini skirt, Merona cardigan, vintage coach backpack, Windsor Smith platform loafers, beret from eBay, K-Mart knee-high opaque tights, Adidas Originals watch.

This look is definitely inspired by Clueless vibes and that pared-back 90s minimal style, focusing on a simple colour palette. I'd even wear little black bike shorts under this mini skirt for extra freedom of movement. And no - I don't expect you to fit all your school supplies in a bag that tiny lol. I just could not effectively fit the intended bag in the frame for this look, but it would have been my Candy Sugar japanese school bag.


Look 2: SPORTY - Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals oversized t-shirt, American Apparel denim backpack (customised with studs and Katie keyring), Nike sneakers, YMCMB official snapback, Adidas Originals watch, bike shorts from eBay, socks from somewhere in Shibuya. 

This is actually my go-to travel, school, movies, running-erands, quick-and-easy look. The t-shirt is insanely soft and has a really flattering fit despite how big it is! This is such a suitable look for class, and the denim AA backpack is super sturdy and great for carrying a laptop and books.


Look 3: CUTE - Topshop polka-dot dress, Supre crop, pastel backpack from SPINNS, Nike AF1 sneakers, Adidas Originals watch, crescent moon choker from Etsy. 

A classmate of mine once told me I looked like an ice-skater when I wore this to school. The skirt of the minidress definitely has that vibe. Super-short and/or thin-strapped dresses are much easier to wear if you layer it over some bike shorts and a fitted t-shirt. And I can guarantee the comfort of this look as I wore it on the hike up to Diamond Head Summit in Honolulu.


Look 4: CASUAL - Custom crop sweatshirt, American Apparel denim shorts, Nike Sneakers, American Apparel thigh-high socks, Opening Ceremony tote, crisis heart necklace from eBay, Adidas Originals watch, Sportsgirl sunglasses (and my iPhone.)

Most days of uni classes I would wear a variation of this look (a different colour crop sweatshirt, a different colour of shorts, a different pair of Nikes…). It's also another go-to everyday casual look I wear in cooler months. In winter weather I add a long-sleeve crop underneath and a pair of tights. Sometimes I'd even swap the shorts for a mini kilt or tennis skirt. It's a laid-back look that doesn't look too laid-back (great sentence, I know.)

XOXO


Vintage cheongsam mini dress by XOXO, Windsor Smith loafers, rings from eBay/Diva. 

You'll never guess how I found this EXACT cheongsam… actually you might, idk. But I found the brand from this interview with Alicia Silverstone in Seventeen magazine, 1995. Zoomed in on dem clothing credits, bam - and actually found one on eBay ??? (but in red) it was clearly meant to be. I did have this altered a little though (as if it could have fit me this flawlessly) and it was well worth it.

I'll be doing another '4 back-to-school looks' post and filming a video soon! Hope you're all having a great week :-)

Shop The Milk Club



It finally happened! My blog shop is now live and stocked. You will find vintage pieces, items from my outfit posts, and clothing I've ordered online that doesn't fit me as I'd hoped. I'm currently using Storenvy as my shop platform for the first time so I'm still learning all the functions of it (so please be patient), but hopefully it all runs smoothly. I'm also still in the process of photographing clothing to be added, so to stay updated on new items in the shop follow my Twitter and Like my facebook page. Yay! Happy Shopping ☆彡

Brandy Melville cropped turtleneck, American Apparel jeans, vintage belt, vintage Coach backpack, thrifted beret, Windsor Smith loafers, Giza necklace.

This is my anticipating autumn look… At this time of the year (especially after having recently shopped in another country's winter) I feel like I am so ready to crack out my new cooler-weather pieces yknow?? and I'm just like lookin at that weather app with Sydney reading 33 degrees celcius.

Had some exciting events the past couple of weeks, including my birthday and graduation! Thank you so much to everyone for sending me kind wishes :-) And I should definitely give my birthday dinner a mention. Basically every year I can choose a restaurant I'd like to visit, and this year (after wanting to go for literally 2 yrs) I finally went to Arras! Such an experience. One of the best parts was the petit fours, which were like a portable candy shop - you can spend as long as you like with the selection of tiny cakes and sweets and eat as much as you like (this is following 3 courses btw... I wish I was able to eat more of them!) Anyway I'll now leave you with my photos below as they will do it all much better justice than my descriptions. Hope you are all having a great February ( ´=ิ◞౪◟=ิ’)

(p.s. not sure if explaining the post title is necessary, but here's a clue: "What's with today, today?")
