My Kinda Cozy

by - Monday, April 03, 2017


I've been living in oversize tees and hoodies these days, they're just perfect for the sometimes gloomy and sometimes sunny but always humid sort of climate we're experiencing; that lazy feeling that the weather brings transpire through my choice of clothes and I try to just pull it off the best I can. Not bad though, eh?

This tee is one of the pieces that I bought from my recent Hong Kong visit during Art Basel week, from the Christina Paik x OkOkOk collaboration nonetheless. I like that fact that it has her initials and that's C.P. Get it? (OK, I meant Carla and Pierre. Cheesy.) The joggers is an old pair that I've been using to workout with. Joggers with side slits are so trendy these days but I still can't find the pair that I've been eyeing for a while now (Kappa with the side buttons to be specific, so if you guys know where I can cop, hit your girl up) so I decided to DIY this one by cutting up slits on both sides. I'm going back to DIY-ing a lot of my old jeans lately so expect to see some of them pop back up here soon.




Oh, and in case you're wondering, yes, that's a belt tied around my neck. I've been meaning to do this for so long now and I finally did. I'm kinda done with regular chokers and the bandana as chokers which was so last year. Trust me, this is new and will be a thing come summer. I'll be out hunting for other forms of belts that I can do this with so be warned, this will be a recurring accessory in the blog for quite some time until I'm done with it too.




Anyhow, you know I hate Mondays as is but even more when it's so damn packed with stuff to deal with at work. Today was a fully loaded day but despite my not being in the mood to really get into the job because it's a holiday tomorrow, I think I was pretty productive having ticked quite a few tasks of my list. And well, for the same reason, because tomorrow's a holiday made me twice efficient to compensate for one work day lost. Now calling it a day, and am ready for that extra day off!


Cheers,
Carla

  1. I love the fact you used a belt as a choker, it looks amazing and super different and original. I also really like the t-shirt and it looks amazing paired with that denim jacket.
