outfit | back to basics

Forever 21 Top, Forever 21 Leather Panel Trousers, Casio Watch, Hot Options for Target Shoes and Rimmel London in Apricot Punch on the nails
Last week I had to attend Presentation Day (aka award ceremony) at school. It was nice to see several people I haven't seen for weeks and collect my award. For this, I wanted to look put together but still casual at the same time since it was held during the day. I have always loved classic silhouettes but adding a twist to them to give it a modern edge. The trousers were a slim fit and had leather panelling which gave the classic trouser a modern edge, but still gave it a classic look. I also created a cuff with the trousers to create a casual-cool look. I also went quite minimal by finsihing the outfit with a messy bun, a gold sports-lixe watch by Casio and my favourite pair of shoes. I also broke up the monochromatic palette with some bright summer nail polish.
