What I Wore: Laid-Back Retro


Hey everyone!

I'm beginning to think the unplanned outfit posts are the best.

I had no plans of making this a style post but after getting compliments on the look, *fluffs hair* I took to the streets immediately I came back from church and took these pictures.


Interesting fact: I dressed up in under 10 minutes on this particular morning. No lie.

I woke up really late and bam! I went into automatic mode. Grabbed this dress (because it wasn't rumpled) then realised it was a summer dress and didn't cover enough so I threw this blazer on, grabbed my sandals and ta-da! All dressed and ready to go.

If you're wondering about the make up, I only use lipstick and eyeliner (gave up on drawing rows earlier, too much stress) and it took me less than 7 seconds to draw my winged-eyeliner (video coming soon on the blog) and about 10 seconds to apply my lipstick.

It worked well, because I have standard outfit formulas I usually wear.

Yes, I know, this is not the most interesting outfit but I feel minimalism has it's own aesthetic too. Besides, my hair is doing all the talking, yes? ; )

You know, I used to believe sandals and blazers didn't go well together. Like, if your going for a polished look, stick to covered shoes. I think I stand corrected. What do you think?
Would you wear sandals + blazers?

  1. I'm really not a sandal person, but seeing the way you rocked it well here I think I would consider getting one and pairing it with my blazers. And really unplanned outfit shoots are the best.

    1. Thank you! It was totally unplanned o. I just grabbed the closest available flat footwear and rushed out the door :)

  2. Your hair looks like a fiery afro, very cute!

    Your facial expression in the second photo is so Vogue magazine. :-)

    I'd never have thought blazers would go with sandals, but you make it look like a match made in heaven. I love the print of the dress, very cheerful colour.

    1. Thank you! I was going for that exact look!

      Yea, my mum doesn't think so. She said "Isn't there ANY other picture?" lol
