THE CLASSIC BLACK & WHITE OUFIT: 2 SUMMERLICIOUS WAYS
Just as much as i love my colorful outfits, i do tend to fall right into the classic black and white pieces very quickly and easily. Wearing these two colors together are undeniably a perfect match made in fashion heaven. If there are any two colors that will fall into every and any dress code these two colors are so easily acceptable.

When a company i once worked for, expressed our office outfits had to be neutrals, i would often buy white shirts in different shapes and sizes to match them with black bottoms, period. Why? Because it was easy and quick. Once it came to the weekends, i almost didn't want to have anything to do with those colors until Monday morning again. They were work uniforms. The fact is, it was just impossible. I love these two classic colors. Soon enough, i found ways to incorporate these pieces into my everyday look, especially on a beautiful summer day.

LOOK #1: Office Hour To Happy Hour
When a long day or week at work calls for some cocktails or just a time to let off some steam and socialize after work, that quick switch of outfit into chic mode status is always needed. All it takes is a nanosecond to unbutton the blazer or jacket worn over the top. Leaving that blazer behind in the car or just letting it hang off somewhere gives this white strapless crop top and black high waisted shorts i have on, a time to shine.

LOOK #2: Beach To Street
I am wearing a beach wear cover up top as a regular top. I paired it with a pair of printed pants for some drama and fun. The cool thing about this look is i can easily wear my swimwear (in black probably) underneath while laying on a beach or i could simply take it to streets and own it which was what i did.

Sequin Hearts Dress
A girls night out should be just as fun as the outfit. No?

Hahaha, i won't even bother telling you about my experiences on a girls night out with my friends. Talk about fun and craaazy times!! (In that Oprah kinda voice). Anyway, when the sweet blogger duo, Zoha and Fatima, reached out to me for a "Girls Night Out" Outfit collaboration, i was super honored by this and sweet of them. I immediately started thinking of an outfit idea. While trying to finalize a look, i realized it had been a while since i went on one and i may be a little rusty in picking out the perfect outfit :)).

Since a night out with the babes is always high on oestrogen, i guess it calls for a night to shine, to be confident, sexy, chic.... and maybe even bring on the glitter. This glittery one shoulder bodycon gold dress was my final pick. I can't deny how flattering the fitting of of dress is, and the length is just so ideal. The only things was, it had so much glitter on it that at the end of the shoot, my entire body was covered from hair to toe, i looked like fire works in heels.

The lovely Zoha says, she was going for a wild girls night out look while Fatima says, she decided on a sweet and informal look. Very lovely girls with distinct style. They are best friends who blog together.

Floral Print Skater Dress
Because it is Friday, we all know the best way to end a crazy week or start a lovely weekend well is going shopping.

Okay, maybe it's just me.... Well, you can agree with me when i say, while shopping, even better is not only finding an outfit that can be worn anywhere and everywhere, but one that makes you and your bank account happy.

This week on "Chic For Cheap Series", i am featuring, yes, another dress. Hey, if you love dresses like i do, you know you can never have too many dresses in your closet. Most especially if they are just suitable for as many occasions as you can possibly have. Floral prints will never go out of fashion and a skater dress is fun, flirty and sweet.  So my #FabFindFriday this week was from Marshalls which is part of TJ Maxx where you can get designer brands for less. They had quite a large collection of floral print dresses on their racks but you may have to go into the nearest location to you to check 'em out since they don't sell online. Meanwhile, if you would rather shop online TJ Maxx has a few pretty ones similar to mine on sale.

Overall Dress by Ali & Kris
The last time i wore an overall dress, it had nothing to do with fashion.

In junior high school we were made to wear plain green modest overall dresses as part of our school uniform but once we became seniors we had to switch to skirts. Being a school uniform, it had to be below the knees and definitely not hip hugging tight or pencil, but loose and A-lined. "Ugh, really?" We actually called it a pinafore and we wore a white blouse with it. Ever since my junior days, i have never looked back at overall dresses until now.

Although, i thought it was really cute, I was still not convinced about this floral print overall. I just couldn't see past how really childish it might look, especially on my petite self. All i could think of was how to style it to be more grown up or mature. Styling it with the tube crop top was my first attempt to mixing the cute in it with some edgy appeal of the crop top and heels. Boy, did i fall in love.... I guess, it is okay to give that sweet kiddie side in all of us a chance.

1 Basic Tank Top: 4 Fabulous Ways
Bought this sweet looking tank top from H&M a size bigger hoping it will fit just right, but not quite. What to do? Find ways to love it and make it my own.

Why didn't i just buy my size? They didn't have my size and even though it is just a pretty basic bright yellow tank top anyway, i thought of ways to get the basic out of it. The hot days are getting hotter and my desire for lighter clothes are getting bigger. As a great believer of maximizing my wardrobe this four looks were inspired.

LOOK #1: YELLOW ON YELLOW
This first look will brighten anybody's day in a heartbeat. It is hard to go unnoticed with this "sunny side up" kinda look but pairing matching colors together is one of my favorite ways to bring out the beauty of a piece(s). The skinny pants are so chic and are just as much of a wardrobe staple as the tank top because they make any outfit look so effortless.

LOOK #2: COLOR BLOCKING
Mastering the color blocking technique can be fun but it really doesn't require any sort of expertise knowledge. Putting together colors that just seem to get along or harmonize so well is the beauty of this look. Just another day out for a walk by the lake on a hot summer day calls for a laid back yet pretty sweet look. Apparently yellow seems to be a versatile color.

SHORTS: Seductions

LOOK #3 A  MIDI AFFAIR
A midi skirt is an instant dressy affair i happen to love so much. It is so elegant and graceful on any body type -shape, size and height. This is such an easy way to dress up the tank top while enjoying an evening out.

LOOK #4 : VINTAGE TOUCH
My love for vintage pieces has no boundaries. I thought why not layer it with a very light vintage outer wear, especially a very colorful one like this. Giving it some playful yet down to earth look.


Hope you enjoyed all the four very different looks which i believe are unique in their own way. Do you have a favorite?
