CRISP AND FOLDED

by Aileen Belmonte


Collared Top c/o PERSUNMALL
Origami Skorts c/o WOAKAO
VINTAGE Bag

I'm sorry guys, but I can't really narrate how I came up with this look. I honestly had no specific theme, goal, or trend in mind when I was putting everything together. All I knew was that there were plans for brunch that Monday morning, and I went for something easy and casual. 

Seeing it now, there's something quite rustic and vintage about it. I guess that could be attributed to the embroidered detail on my top from PERSUNMALL, and the darker colors used. That beautiful blue door behind me helps too, giving a nice contrast to my maroon skorts from WOAKAO, and boots from TONIC BAGS and SHOES

COUNTRYSIDE

by Aileen Belmonte
Dress c/o 6KS
PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE Ankle-strap Heels
VINTAGE Bag

Sometimes I feel like I have one too many floral dresses. Still, each dress is different and unique. For this certain piece, doesn't it give off a certain countryside vibe? Maybe it's the play of blue and yellow hues, maybe it's its ladylike silhouette. I can't quite place my finger on it, but this dainty little dress from 6KS will definitely fit in any southern sweetheart's wardrobe.

I felt like I wanted to maintain the overall simplicity of this dress, so I chose to keep my accessories subtle and neutral. My favorite add-on is this vintage, basket-weave handbag. Isn't it absolutely lovely? With a pair of nude pumps, this look was ready to go!

HIS AND HERS

by Aileen Belmonte


Plaid Shirt
Lace Skirt c/o STYLEMOI
ZARA Boots
VINTAGE Bag

Today's look is a mashup of staples from both menswear and womenswear. I'm almost sure that every guy out there has at least one plaid shirt in his closet. Likewise, every woman appreciates the femininity of lace. Opposites they may be apart, together they give you one cool, streetstyle-worthy outfit. I also love how this casual plaid top balances this dressier skirt from STYLEMOI. So girls, time to borrow stuff from the boys (...and probably wear it better than they do haha)!
