Floral Lookbook

One of the trends that I truly love is floral trend. I love flowers! I keep two bottles of coronas as my vases on my study table, and I always try to replenish them with fresh flowers every fortnight. So I thought why not share with you girls how I would wear floral .

I'm a die-hard fan of off-shoulders, and pretty sure I'm not the only one! Which crowns this top from Ellysage, the best thing that ever happens to me. I especially am fond of the cutout details, which gives a bohemian touch. I paired it with this God-sent ( kidding, it's from the lovely people at WLFM ) floral chiffon shorts. Cannot stop gushing over the colors of the flowers which are an utter complete perfection of pastel. I would label it must-have for your spring essentials !

If you know me , you could easily derive I'm not the girliest woman out there and that's why I love how versatile floral trend is ! Hold on though! How perfect is my skorts for this outfit ! ( totally freaking out, ergo the many, consecutive exclamation marks) The added touch of mesh gives an illustration of tutu skirts, which is nothing but girly, without taking away the raw edge from the piece. Totally at the edge of my seat, thinking of future outfits I'll be pairing this skorts with. 

C-c-checkout my new rad casing from Mondaynoblues . I just have to hop on the train of this trend and picked this color because I think maroon is the new black, only it adds more edge to an all-black outfit! Couldn't thank the lovely people over at Mondaynoblues enough for sending me this piece xx

Genuinely worship whoever came up with Floral Kimono, I mean, had it been created in the era of Mary Poppins, I think she would be parading all over town with it ! Talk about how this boy casing blends well with any outfit I put it in, and it is extremely convenient. Guilty as charged, I'm one of those who cannot live without their iphones so this saves me all the hassle of digging in to my bag for my phone. 

Shying away from wearing wedges for this outfit, just had to try pairing it with this pair of lovely flats from Schulicious . I think I did fairly well? but if you think otherwise, hold on to your horses because I'll be doing a blog post solely dedicated on how I'd pair this pair of flats ( spoiler alerts ).

I'm an all-casual girl, I have classes daily and 90% of the time I just show up without makeup and in my uniform of shorts and shirts. Like who has the time to be all dressy dressy when comfort is anything but crucial ( Don't shoot me though, I been lazy and careless all my life ! ) Therefore if you asked me, this outfit has got to be my favourite!

 It's casual but the thigh-highs take away all the laziness in it . And are you convinced in purchasing you own boy casing already ? The casing actually gives the outfit a little oomph , without it, the colors of the whole outfit would be muted and boring.

If you've been following my instagram ( @sxnoonlush ), you would notice that I'm obsessed with nail arts! So I couldn't pass to doing floral nail arts :) Here's a virgin attempt to simple floral nail arts for beginners like me :

I was looking for something jade blue for the base but couldn't find any, so I thought this color would make do since it still has that vintage-ish feeling.

Draw some blotches for the base of your roses, they need not be perfectly rounded or in place, just wherever and whatever you feel right!

Use a darker shade, i used pink, to outline the blotches. I used toothpicks to outline them because I don't have a steady finger and my brush isn't very defined. Again, they don't need to be fully or perfectly outlined.

Use the same color as your outline, to draw some lines inside to illustrate petals of roses. I changed my toothpick every two roses to ensure that I'm using a sharp end so the lines wouldn't be very wide. As you can see, I don't have a pattern in drawing the lines, too. Again, just whatever feels right!

Lastly, draw a pair of small triangles at the sides of each rose

and ta-da ! It's not the best one but it's a simple and fast one which you can do in less than 30 minutes! 

I am eternally grateful for all my sponsors who have made this post possible, and most importantly you!
