Transforming a formal shirt into edgy street chic ❤ ❤ ❤
I kinda look like an equestrian (horseback rider) with this cap on! HAHA!
The sun is deceptive…even though it’s sunny, Vancouver weather is still kinda chilly
And then we head to Stanley Park…
Tied my jacket around my waist for a casual chic look for a stroll at the park

Just finished my Magnum ice cream bar…:)

This post is called ‘Transformation’ because I want to focus on how to ‘transform’ one piece of clothing from one setting to another. The blue-colored cotton shirt I’m wearing underneath my black crochet sweater was actually purchased for a professional interview. With pieces like this, I wouldn’t get much wear out of it because it’s a too formal by itself. That’s why I always look for ways to work with these clothing and style it so that it’s still wearable in a casual setting.
One of the ways is of course to wear a crochet top or a sweater top so you just have the collar peeking out. I like crochet because you can still see the color of the shirt underneath giving it a sense of contrasting layers. I further erased the sophistication by wearing a black pleather (synthetic leather) jegging and a black cap. Because my outfit is quite monochromatic, I like to pop in some color with my red leather bag.
Blue shirt: Tommy Hilfiger
