Making Preppy Look Cool

Photography: Lindsey Thoeng

I still can't believe that I paid absolutely nothing for this cute sweater! I got it at ifchic, a website that allows you to collect coins every day and use them to buy clothes. If you are not familiar with this store yet, check this post where I explain more about it.

The white collar and bottom part of my top makes it look like I am wearing a white shirt underneath, but it's actually built in the sweater. Even though preppy is not really my personal style, I still love this sweater+shirt look!

To make my outfit cooler and less preppy, I added these cool Ray Bans.

And to add a modern touch, I was wearing my girlfriend's oxford shoes to complete the look, proving that preppy doesn't mean bland and boring.

Persimmon Dress To Brighten up This Autumn

Photography: Lindsey Thoeng

I bought this dress at Zara about two months ago, and I think it is great for the fall season, because of its persimmon color. I love the deep U-shaped-cut in the front of the dress, and the lace details as well. But my favorite thing about this dress is without a doubt its color.

Fall is definitely the time to start saying goodbye to the most colorful pieces in our wardrobe, and to go back to the winter-famous colors: black and grey. I will not lie and say that I don't like the "darker" clothes, I actually prefer those minimalistic tones. But I just don't feel ready to completely change yet, so this persimmon color is helping me transition from colorful to black.

I just feel like time is passing by so fast! Soon it will be winter, and all we see are black outfits. So during fall, I want to enjoy wearing the most of fall-earth-colors while I can. If you also feel that way, or if you are just loving the color of my dress, scroll down to see some other dresses in autumn-trendy-colors to brighten up your season.
