There are two things new about this look post. Firstly, I have worn a neutral colored outfit with not even a pop of red or yellow on my nails! If you are a regular reader of my blog you’ll notice that this is quite unusual as I cannot let go off bright colors entirely. Secondly, this is the first time I am wearing a shrug. I think shrugs are a great cover up for slightly chilly summer days and a stylish way to add an extra layer to your outfit. Its just that I simply could not relate myself to a shrug for some strange reason! But this cute off-white shrug from forever 21 caught my attention and I thought to myself if I want to start wearing shrug this has to be the my first one! πŸ™‚
Since this shrug is quite pretty I wanted to add a bit of edge to the look by wearing a pair of boyfriend jeans and to balance the look, teamed it with a off white silk crop top.
Its fun to break free of your normal way of dressing and experiment with colors and looks you haven’t tried before. I am really glad I started this blog that gave me the confidence to explore beyond my comfort zone! Thanks for reading and as always I would love to hear your thoughts on my look!
