Someone suggested that I should start a personal style blog. And I thought to myself, "Why not?" It could be really fun. Or not. Anyhoo, this is my little hole-in-the-wall of vintage finds, style obsessions and the sort. Let's not take things too seriously around here, shall we?

Springing Back to Basics
POSTED ON : Monday, 25 March 2013
So Spring is upon us... Not like we can feel much of it anyway, but Spring always calls for some light layering. And I like to think that a cardigan isn't too much. It's a simple way to add a layer without too much bulk. The key to wearing a cardigan in our unforgiving heat? Invest in one that's sheer and thin, something of lightweight material yet doesn't look cheap on the texture. Threads coming out everywhere like little earthworms are a no-no.

Lowrys Farm anyone? $30+ for a cardigan sounds good? Sounds AWESOME to me. And so I pulled the trigger on this teal cardigan. It's so breathable I had no qualms about feeling hot or bothered when I was out doing my thing. Lowrys Farm tend to have some really nice basics and patterned shirts that can go really cheap during its sale. Like dirt cheap. You might wanna go check them out.

I used to wonder how do I get the right look. Do I wear something out of my comfort zone? Should I try what sartorially-inclined guys are dishing out online? Then it struck me. A good rule of thumb is to always keep it simple, because day-to-day wear should always be effortless and natural. Whenever I find myself getting lost in transition, I go back to basics.

I like how the basics formula oozes a sophisticated brand of minimalist vibe. Throw in an accessory or two to give it that subtle hint of individuality. You can never go wrong with them unless you decide that you wanna be a premature Christmas tree. Or Snoop Dogg with those little braids and his chain-hang-lows. Of course, an iPad never hurts :)
