Seeing Stripes






Shirt: Mango // Jeans: H&M // Belt: Zara // Clutch: Bershka // Shoes: Charles David

I'm officially back home. It was a very sad and heartbreaking goodbye to the man I love; long-distance relationships are not for the faint of heart. But if it's God's will, he will be back home soon. 

Undoubtedly, I had to go shopping during my stay in Mexico and the bf more than happily and graciously obliged. Yes, that's right folks, I'm blessed to have a bf that loves to shop as much as I do. I nabbed this striped tee perfection from Mango. The cut of the neck is very elongating and the length of the sleeves are just right. I've been hunting for a replacement for my H&M version that decided to shrink after a lot of washes. Just like the chambray shirt and white crisp shirt, I categorize stripe tees as another wardrobe basic necessity. Said basics can be paired to make countless outfits and stand the test of time. I probably should've bought two, but I'm certain I will come across more to add to my wardrobe. Lastly, this striped clutch was also purchased in Mexico from a store called Bershka. I have some more goodies to share with you so stay tuned! I hope you all have a great Thursday.

  6. I was already loving the stripes on stripes in this outfit, but that bag just killed me. That's how I feel most of the time!

  7. nice outfit! I love the humorous saying on the clutch. I love Bershka! I had a fun time shopping at one when I was in Shanghai several months ago. I believe it is the sister store to Zara. Enjoy your new purchases and hope you get to hear from your loved one soon and often!

  13. Aww I can imagine how hard it must be, I've been in my share of long distance relationships, but I feel like they work better sometimes.. maybe because I'm a person who doesn't like to get attached to people, so being at a distance helps. But either way, you look super chic. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your pants and the panel pattern on them. Not sure about the clutch, it's clashing a little with the stripes on your tee, but either way, you look like you should be in Paris!

  24. I absolutely love the statement of the clutch alongside with the pointed shoes and the stripes, as always you look absolutely stunning, i believe there's just this extra dualism essence on stripes, like the whole "white but stained in plainness" feeling

  25. Stripes tees are definitely wardrobe staples, but I am not lucky enough to find the one which doesn't twist. I don't give up, looking for another one.
