Apologies for the lack of pictures and the quality. I took them with my point-and-shoot camera and iPod which is really grainy but best for self shots :/ I definitely want to invest in a DSLR or compact DSLR however it's not something of high priority. I'd be more than happy to receive it as a gift though hehe :)
Anyway, this OOTD was really simple and that was essentially what I was aiming for. I attended a birthday dinner last Saturday and the venue was a very chilled, family restaurant hence I didn't feel that it was necessary to wear something dressy etc.
If you saw my previous post on those magazine pictures, the current trends right now are fluros, pastels and metallics. I hope it wasn't a fashion crime for me to do a 3-in-1 lol!
White long sleeve: Cotton On
Mint shrug: Temt
Burnt ochre skinnies: Asos (Vero Moda)
Heart necklace & crown ring: Valleygirl
Metallic gold bag: Strandbags
Before I decided to walk out of the door with this outfit, I admit that I did do a little research online (oh gosh this makes me sound so nerdy!). As I am not a self-proclaimed fashionista or anything close to it, I was a little unsure whether mint and orange/ochre would be an okay combination and to my surprise, I did find other people's OOTD with mint and orange! Great to have some reassurance - it surely gave me the green light to wear this pastel and bright combo out!
And with the metallic accessories... I hope they were a suitable addition to my pastel and bright combo. Again I wasn't too sure but I didn't bother doing any researching aka stalking other people's OOTDs and getting ideas. XD But it should be safe considering that I normally always wear silver and gold jewellery.
Since this is strictly a OOTD post, I feel no need to show my face! Haha but seriously, for the night I only wore eyeliner for eye makeup and kept my hair straight and down. Nothing fancy :P
So yeah, that's it to my first OOTD for the year, hope it was somewhat interesting. Fingers crossed that I'll have better-quality pictures for my next OOTD where the lighting is better. I also need to invest in a tripod...
