I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
The All You Can Eat Buffet Eating Friendly Look
I think we all know that this outfit is exactly what I’d wear if I was going to go to an all you can eat buffet … The top is SUPER LOOSE and comfortable, and the jeans are very comfortable, so I can sit and eat to my heart’s content.
I used to go to these AYCE buffets with friends in university where I’d stuff my face with sushi like crazy, but nowadays I’d rather pay for less sushi but of much better and higher quality food that is delicious.
I wore it with an oversized blazer… and RESISTED THE URGE TO BELT THE TOP! If I belted the top, I wouldn’t be able to eat (right?)… but I wouldn’t put it past myself on wearing a thicker obi belt as a waist-defining accessory over the jacket & the top together.
I like the look a lot even though it’s super loosey-goosey and without a defined waist (my kryptonite), but it looks great from the side, and just as a casual, cool look that doesn’t need to be overtly feminine nor sexy (although the deep V folds in the top say otherwise)…
Moves well! Obviously because I am not in heels, although I did consider wearing high heels with this look to put a little more of a feminine touch into the look.
There’s my waist!
The rose gold cuff is the ‘pretty’ touch to the look. I know the rose gold doesn’t match the gold sneakers but I like to mix metals particularly when I know the rose gold appears elsewhere, like here — the rose gold cuff matches with the rose gold zips on the jacket, which is why I chose it.
All metals go together in my opinion. It’s a nice thing to try and mix metals as well as match them, it all depends on where the metals are being placed in an outfit (altogether in one section or in certain areas like the cuff + zips)?
I love this look of distressed jeans + super glam gold sneakers. It just goes so well together.
And the print on this bag, is a piece I bought in Shanghai which was quite an expensive piece for them (only about $100 CAD but that’s a LOT of yuan in China). I should have gotten a few more designs but this one really spoke to me, a nice navy blue geometric floral yet tile-like pattern that is so arresting. I do find it hard to clean because it’s leather + linen, and so I spot washed it under the sink where my armpits usually go, and left sweat stains (I know, TMI but you should know these things if you plan on buying totes like this).
The pattern also reminds me a bit of gemstones, the way they look like angular, jagged edges and sticking out.
