Quick outfit post for you guys this afternoon! This unintentional Asian-themed look came about as I searched for something comfortable and relatively warm to suit the “meh” weather Montreal has been throwing at us. I grabbed a few loose items in my closet for a flowy form. Needless to say that I couldn’t take my bike with me that day for fear of getting my dress caught up in my gears. Thanks Twin-Set for sending me this paisley-like patterned collared shirt. I’m loving details in my outfits, so this is definitely a favourite in my wardrobe this summer. It’s another *relatively* beautiful day today, so I’m off to take a walk.

Photos for Cobalt Blue Dreams by Yannick Khong

Blue cropped workout tank by Topshop | thrifted triangle broch | thrifted fringed back vest | high-waisted pale blue jean shorts by American Apparel | black patent leather belt by American Apparel | Melina Cutout Booties by Jeffrey Campbell exclusively at Nastygal | hand-me-down beaded chain clutch

These were taken a couple of weeks back in Old Montreal. My outfit was built around this blue cropped workout tank I picked up at Topshop. I worked around this piece to create something edgy yet relaxed (the aim was to look cool and easy-going). When I create an outfit, I look for a good balance of colors and form. I look for the same thing when I am working with colors and contrast in photos (I think that this is definitely a rule of thumb when it comes to aesthetics).

In this outfit I have balanced out the blacks with accents from my shoes, belt and vest. I let the blue dominate in the center and used the tank to accentuate the blue on my broch.  In terms of form, the high waist of my jean shorts lengthen the legs and make for nice proportions. As the tank and shorts are very tight, adding a loose vest evens out the form and bring balance back into the outfit.

Thanks for checking out this post! Hope you are inspired by this outfit and put my simple tips to use! Next on the agenda are photos from my amazing trip to Florida. Stay tuned.
