Another outfit post: Urban Street Style

This outfit post focusses on an urban street style that explores the Western side of fashion. Now that I'm on holidays, I have a little more time to actually go out and take photos :) I was very inspired by a Tumblr/alternative look that's becoming increasingly popular nowadays. However, as usual, I've managed to mix the slightest bit of K-fashion into the outfit. 

The overall look focusses on a green, fresh colour palette that complements the environment around it. There are a mix of cool, green shades as well as little touches of pink, which look nice in contrast. The fashion icons which I picked up ideas from for this outfit all come from LOOKBOOK.com, which is this lovely style website where you can post up outfit photos and see what kind of clothes other people are wearing. One of my main fashion inspirations is Chloe Ting, who I have previously mentioned on my blog before. She is also an Australian fashion blogger, and she's incredibly popular and absolutely gorgeous! I love every outfit she puts together and you should check her out at chloeting.com

This outfit is pretty suitable for a cool summer (unlike the one we're having now). I'm wearing a dark teal long-sleeved top with little horse (^_^) patterns on it. It's tight but light and cropped at just below the waist. With this, I've paired a pair of dark denim shorts and wrapped one of those flannel shirts around the hips (idk, this used to be daggy but I'm seeing more and more bloggers wear this style). To accessorise, I've got on my studded platform creepers (bought from Windsor Smith) and a Channel beanie. It's no Chanel, but it's still quite cute :) The fashion point for this outfit is pairing a slightly cropped shirt with short shorts to make the proportions between torso and legs seem longer. Then the beanie and the flannel shirt exude that casual, urban street style. In addition, the legs are lengthened even further by the platform shoes and super rolled down socks.
Oh yeah, steep hills + high angle shots can make you look a lot taller :D
With my friend who took most of these outfit photos along with usual photographer, Rosie :) 
Wine red and grey are a great combination!
Hope you enjoyed this outfit post :) Just to let you know, I'm starting a LOOKBOOK account as well. I'll be posting photos on it soon but just for now, feel free to start following it at: 
I will also be selling this cute Channel beanie in grey on my online shop at ALemonsLife.storenvy.com for an affordable price! Furthermore, the sale is ending soon on my online shop (prices at the moment vary from $11-$35 !!) so get buying in time for XMAS :) 

It's going to be Christmas soon too so stay tuned for my Christmas/New Years giveaway which will be a collaboration with LoveShoppingHolics :)

  12. How do you like colour your hair? Do you get it done professionally or do you use those DIY boxes? I've been thinking about getting my hair blond - I have virgin asian black hair - and I don't know which choice is better.
