Hi friends! Here in NY, we’re still in the heat of summer but autumn is slowly making its appearance known with diminishing daylight and chillier mornings. My outfit is centered around this bright and colorful bird of paradise dress. Because the print is contrasted against a black background, it almost has a graphic and urban feel. The fit is loose and comfortable but with a structured neckline. I’ve styled it with chunky sandals and a black choker for an edgy look.
Dress: Bird of Paradise Print Dress, H&M
Sandals: DABBLE Two Part Sandals, Topshop
Choker: Black Chain Choker, H&M
I really like the shirt that I got from Zara! It has a pin stripe pattern and is cut asymmetrically. The high neck line, streamlined shape, and side slit remind me of the traditional Chinese Qipao. Lunar New Year has just passed and I wanted a modern look that celebrated the occasion. The shirt was the focus of the look so I completed the bottom half of my outfit with all black, pairing black tights with black shorts and black platform boots to add length.

My new shoes came!
I tend to avoid prints, but while browsing, I simply couldn’t resist the big, bright florals featured on this shoe.
I kept the rest of the outfit simple with an all-black concept and topped the entire look off with a sporty windbreaker.
