Shoes: Thrifted

 The short sleeve button-up short has been back on the scene for two summers now. Why? I guess it’s because they are a little more weather resistant, unlike their long sleeve counterpart.

Whatever the case may be, I’m actually a huge fan. Maybe it’s because I’m a self proclaimed nerd, and every brain child has at least three hanging in their closet. No seriously, I just like them. They look great with dress pants, shorts, and of course, denim jeans.

For this week’s post, I wore a short sleeve button-up with a pair of distressed, skinny jeans and leather oxford shoes. The short sleeve button-up was purchased from ASOS sometime last year for $20. I actually like the shirt because it literally looks and feels like a long sleeve dress short. It’s lightweight material is great for those humid summer afternoons.

The jeans were actually purchased from ASOS as well. Being the creative, I grabbed a pair of scissor and distressed these pants myself. Looks good, right?

What do you think about this particular look? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below.

After 5: Summer Rain

Jean jacket: Forever 21| Pants: Gap|
Shoes: Cole Haan

As we embark upon the warmest season of the year, there are many things that we look forward to this summer. Now, we are not talking about swimming pools, bathing suits, and longer hours of sun, but some of the more mystical elements of Mother Nature. More specifically, summer rain.

Summer rain? Yes, think about it! Summer rain is one of the perks that come with this time of season. For some reason though, people always associate rain with dressing down. Think about all those times you threw on a hoodie or shorts to go outside on a rainy day. Well, with this post, we will demonstrate how to dress and accessorize for a rainy day in the city.

Today, our friend Kris shows how to accessorize his business attire in two ways. Remember, jackets or coats are the ultimate accessory on those dreary days. So, for his first look, Kris show to wear the denim jacket. This look goes perfectly to contrast his pink shirt and olive green suit pants. It’s not super formal, so you can get off work and head straight to happy hour with friends, while also keeping the rain off you.

In addition, Kris had this say about his denim jacket, “A jean jacket is safe in the fact that you can get away with it replacing a blazer (except in a business formal setting). In most instances a jean jacket may look cleaner than a blazer depending on the other colors in the outfit. Here, the denim makes the pink shirt and tweed blazer pop out stronger than what a matching-to-pants blazer would. 

The trench coat is a timeless style that shows you mean business. You’re not letting rain get in the way of you killing office attire. You’re sure to turn a few heads in the cubicle at work. Additionally, Kris’s brown full length trench contrasts very well his olive green pants and brings out the pop of his pink shirt.

Remember, the rain is reason helps accessorize, not dress down.

What do you think? How do you dress for a rainy day, especially when you have to work in the office?

Jeans: River Island | Shoes: ASOS

If you plan on stepping out during one of the hottest days of the year, you should consider pairing a t-shirt and blazer together.

Why? Well, blazers and tee shirts go hand in hand, especially when you are headed out after work. Just think about all those times you had plans on meeting up with friends after work, but  had nothing to wear. Well, if you had a solid color tee and blazer packed in your bag, you wouldn’t have anything to worry about.

With all that being said, I thought it would be a great opportunity to get some wear and tear out of my favorite khaki blazer. This blazer was purchased last summer from H&M for $25, and I’ve been in love with it ever since. You can’t beat that, right?

So, when you are thinking about all your summer options, just think about all the possible combinations you can make with a solid color blazer and t-shirt. The possibilities are endless!

After 5: Longtail Tank

post_myasia2_051715_01post_myasia2_051715_02post_myasia2_051715_03post_myasia2_051715_04post_myasia2_051715_05LongTail Tank: AlmostFamous |
Jeans: Payhalf |
Clutch: H&M |
Heels: Eternity Fashion

For this post, we had the opportunity to catch up with our home girl, MyAsia. Last time we checked in with this graphic designer, she was sporting her thrifted floral blazer.

Today, she went a simple look. MyAsia decided to wear her newly purchased tailored tank, distressed denim jeans, strappy heels, and clutch.
With a combination of black, floral prints, and a pop of pink, this outfit is very modest. MyAsia agrees with us completely! She states, “Modesty is always my goal so the tail keeps me classy and covered on a nice summer day.”

What is this tail you speak of MyAsia? If you are a little lost, just take a look at the longtail tank MyAsia is rocking. This popular tank is a cousin of the longline tee with a draping tail in the rear, which is excellent for one of those hot days. According to MyAsia, “With the weather being so bipolar I figured why not go for the ripped jeans with a tailed tank.”

Now, on to the distressed jeans! Just check out the floral patched prints. They add so much detail to the entire outfit. Let’s not forget about those strappy heels. MyAsia had this to say, “Less is more so the shoes bring out the fabric patterns adding a pop of color.” You can’t go wrong with a little pop of color here and there.

Overall, we love MyAsia’s look. What do you think? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below.
