Hello everyone! Summer is officially in as of last week and so for today’s post, let’s talk about summer trends! Like I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, I am currently obsessed with off the shoulders tops! I personally USED to hate showing my shoulders/arms because I have thicker arms for someone my size so I was always been conscious of that. However, I definitely could not help but pick up this trend this Spring and Summer and started to wear them a lot more often.
I think there is no wrong or right in styling a certain trend as long as you yourself know how to rock it well, and confidently at that. I myself have been loving anything high waisted so it is no surprise that I would go for a good ol’ pair of high waisted denim shorts! Seriously, almost anything and everything goes well with high waisted things (shorts, in this case)! Now, with this off the shoulders trend thing has been really in these past few months, I must say at least 9 out of 10 gals should own at least one clothing piece that is off shoulders! I find that off the shoulders pieces just instantly makes your outfit, pop! It is such a simple piece of clothing that you can either dress up or dress down with it and still looks amazing in it regardless!
This Spring/Summer, I picked up a few off shoulders tops and have been wearing them so so often that I neglect my other clothes haha! But, they’re so cute so why not? 😀 Because it is Summer now, we cannot forget all the bright and cute pastel tones! For this blog outfit, I picked out this lavender off the shoulders satin top from Forever 21 and it is the best $15 I’ve ever freaking spent! I also paired it with my usual high waisted denim shorts, but to keep that pastel theme going on, I went for a more baby blue kind of denim color. To finish off the look, I throw on my favorite white sandals that is not just any regular sandals, this one has two of my favorite details: 1. strappy 2. it has a thick platform of 4 (ish) inches! I am sold on anything that are both comfortable and still gives me that extra height! Haha.
What I wore: off the shoulders top Forever 21 / high waisted shorts MamaVirus (it’s a boutique located in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam) / mini backpack Irene’s Story (got it in store at the Westfield Santa Anita mall, but here’s a similar one on their website) / sandals Aliexpress
As mentioned in my latest post (read it here), I recently got the new camera lens (Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens) and I’ve been loving it! It captures the main focus target (aka me as I am usually the main focus of my photos) so so smoothly and crisp while leaving the background blurred out! I haven’t use this lens much to say anything else about it but so far, I love it and I find that it is definitely worth the upgrade from the usual lens kit which took really low quality photos previously despite being a DSLR!
I hope you all enjoy this post and perhaps, if you also enjoy these summer trends, let me know in the comments 🙂 I love to hear what you guys think about these trends or let me know what other trends have you guys been seeing a lot lately? Hehe. Thank you for reading and oh, Happy Summer! Please stay cool and hydrated everyone! ❤️️
