THE LAST ONE

 
 
 

The last summer look of the year, that is. And that is all good because I am really ready for fall now. I have to admit, I will probably miss my Birks, but it looks like they're having another moment next summer. Until then... bring on the boots, knits & layers.

WEARING // H&M semi sheer black tee, Zara wrap skit, Birkenstock 'Arizona' sandals, Zara quilted chain bag.

PERSONALIZING MINIMAL STYLE - PART 2


A little more moody, a little more edgy... Whereas the first set of pictures were light & airy, the second set is a little different. Still minimal and monochrome, but we all went for something new.

Here I am wearing Melissa Araujo's 3 in 1 vest as a dress, layered over the mesh crop top that I decided to wear backwards. Because - why not? Admittedly it's not quite the look I would usually go for, but I felt like experimenting and it's definitely something different. I opted to wear heels for this shoot, but I think it could also be really cool with a pair of New Balance 620 sneakers. Better, even. 

Check out Randa and Sharday's blog for their looks!

I am SO excited to share this shoot with you guys! A collaboration with my two best friends - Randa & Sharday - was way overdue. When the three of us are together, people often comment on our complimenting style. We share the same love for minimal designs and muted looks, and regularly show up in monochrome looks at the same time (no memos, I promise!), there is always a distinctive difference between our styles. Coincidentally (or not), these pictures are the perfect example of those differences. Can you spot them?

As for the designs we are wearing... They are (hand!) made by the incredibly stylish Melissa Araujo. I first came across Melissa via Instagram and had no idea that she lives in Vancouver as well! I love her monochrome style and her minimalistic approach to her designs and her personal looks. I encourage you to visit her website and check out her minimal designs. Curious to see more of her own style? She blogs as well and offers a daily dose of inspiration on Instagram @melissa.araujo.

WEARING // Melissa Araujo 2 in 1 mesh layered dress, 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Quinn' loafers, H&M Trend Paris Collection chain bag.
