I don’t know about you guys, but the last month was tumultuous for me in more ways than one. Apologies for the excessive gap in posts– it was quite stressful, and I did not have time to sleep, let alone blog. At the same time, I had some amazing experiences, and learned a lot. You win some, you lose some I guess. But we are back to business and I’m excited for the months + year ahead! I’m planning to blog about more topics, maybe even start a YouTube channel… the possibilities are endless. Bring it on, 2016.
One of my weekends last month was spent at an MUN– hence the formal vibe. As a person who is a lover of bright colours, this is probably the most sober outfit I’ve worn in a while. Not complaining though, I kind of like it. I fully recommend this as an MUN outfit.
The shine across the cheekbone is known as “strobing” because of the effect it gives– like a light strobe from your skin. I love doing this with my highlighter. I think it is a subtle yet beautiful glow. The rest of the makeup was straightforward: foundation, eyeliner, mascara, red lipstick for a pop of colour, the works.
A small graphic print really makes so much difference to an otherwise classic outfit. It’s also more flattering than I thought it would be. I really love this skirt and might wear it with a bright sweater sometime.
Pointed-toe kitten heels add a bit of edge.
You can see the shoulders are exaggerated in this blazer (“power shoulders”)– it’s not really a formal blazer but the cropped style helps emphasise the tucked-in shirt and high-waisted skirt.
Minimal accessories– watch, rose gold bracelet, and choker.
This is a pretty simple outfit for an MUN or any other formal event. A foolproof formula even– printed skirt + solid top + blazer + heels. My parents were surprised I didn’t don my usual coloured blazers (more on that in the future), and went the classic route instead. A matte red lip works with everything as well, especially monochrome outfits.
Wearing: Uniqlo shirt, Forever 21 blazer, H&M skirt, Zara heels, Michael Kors bag, Hilfiger watch. Bracelet from Swarovski.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
