On Neutral Ground

I blended in well with the backdrop didn't I? Or probably would blend well wherever I go. Yup, it's an earth-tone kind of a day today as I woke up seemingly flying under the radar and didn't feel like I wanted to be on the limelight today (yeah, if). If you're with me then this is the perfect time to wear clothing in quiet shades like brown, green, champagnes, tans and other muted colors. I like that these shades also complement our asian skin tone.

Since we have, I guess, the most unpredictable weather, leaving the house ready with both the sun and the rain is the smartest thing. This hooded jacket in light material, soft lining, with just the right length will keep me warm and surely protect me from the rain. And nothing is more appropriate to wear when the sun is up than a pair of shorts and a cool shades.

I'm a Laundry Girl

How do you rock your scarf? The title of this post emanated from the vibe this adorable boho scarf gives off. A scarf is usually worn on the head this way by one who has a handful of house work to be done. It gives a connotation that she is seriously busy with the task at hand and therefore, should not be bothered. LOL. A scarf worn this way also serves to keep the sweat out of one's face and eyes - fashion sanitation ladies! 

There are actually a lot of different ways to tie a scarf in your hair. Here, I tied the ends of my scarf securely into a bow and brought the bow out in front and on top of my head for an extra chic look. 

My love for denim shorts has never failed me especially when the task at hand requires an undisturbed legwork. My choice for a top was this long back soft cotton which added drama to an otherwise basic top. If you opt to wear short shorts, carefully consider the length of your top to pair it with. A long back tops are recommended since they also provide some degree of protection from creeping toms trying to catch a glimpse of our ladyzones.

Now I'm ready to accept your laundry! :-)
