Lookbook: Blue like the sky

My latest thing are baggy tops.  I just bought 5 from ASOS.com and I can't stop.  They all are so huge and billowy but I love them.  But I need to belt everything or else it looks like I'm just wearing a really ill fitting shirt.  I'm kinda over belting everything, I need a new way to style it!  Some are actually a bit TOO big that I might take it to my tailor to get them slighty less baggy.  Altering a baggy shirt to only semi-baggy?  Yup, that's something that I would do.  Anyway, I love the print of this shirt and isn't the blue so pretty?

What I'm Wearing
Top: Yumi Kim
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Gucci
Belt: Cheapie from Taiwan
Necklace: J Crew
I loved my ombre nails that I did with these purples.  The last bottle is the matte top coat.

Yumi Kim "Joey" Printed Silk Top
I love Yumi Kim's new fall prints.  I'm all over this one and this one too!
I think a striped skirt (only $12!) would be cute underneath that print.  For the fall, this wool skirt would be a good substitute to keep you warmer.

Can't go wrong with a neutral gray pump.  I'm going to have to pick these up!

Speaking of gray, did you see these Jeffrey Campbell 'Tabitha' Pumps? I love the lace on them!  If you like my Gucci's, Bluefly has these that are similar.


  1. Yes!! I love the print of the tunic!! I love color, but lately I'm always wearing black or white... I think I have the same problem than you, lately I need a belt for everything :D

  2. LOVE those hees. I'm really liking your purple polish collection as well!

  3. That blue is gorgeous on you! I love the blousy top with the fitted skirt. You look gorgeous!

  4. Gorgeous top and I love the lace pumps!

  5. What a great look! Really love the bright colours.

    A matte top coat is smart - I'm wearing matte polish but I ruined it first time around with no top coat but now it just looks like regular polish!

  6. i got a baggy top from f21 last year and i loveeee tucking it into skirts and highwaisted pants and puffing it out a little.

    i never knew there was such a thing as matte finishing polish! faboo!

  7. Love the top and your nails look great!

  8. I love every piece Yumi Kim brings out! I still adore your YSL ring. Want one!!!

  9. Beautiful top, T.

    I'm into the EXACT same thing. So funny as my mom and I were shopping on Saturday and she asked, 'Are you looking for anything in particular?' and I responded, 'Yes, more baggy clothing' - LOL. I ended up getting two billowy tops (which was perfect for yesterday's -Canadian- Thanksgiving celebrations ;)

    PS - Cool nails.

  10. Cute outfit! I know I found myself in the same situation; lots of woven tops too! You should totally try taking off just and inch on the waistline and you'll change them around, they'll look way better!


  11. Hi Tiff, love the oversized top pair with short skirt! I can tell you lost weight, legs look long and skinny! =)

    I loove every shade of purple you used on your nails, do you mind listing what they are? Thanks!

  12. I'm slightly obsessed with ASOS these days. Great prices, cute stuff and fast shipping. It doesn't get better than that!

  13. I really really love your manicure! I might have to copy your great idea! xoxo

  14. I love your YK top! I got notice of her sale this weekend - biut she doesn't have any tops in that same style - only the ones with ties. Adoring your ombre nails - may have to play around with my polishes this week too! :)

  18. Oh I LOVE billowy tops! And I, too, just made an ASOS purchase! I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival next Monday!

  19. The print of this blouse is fabulous! And even though you may be tired of belting big tops, it looks great!

  20. That top is beautiful - gorgeous shades of blue! I like semi-baggy tops. Too baggy and I look pregnant!

    I have a question about those Nappa pumps. Do you own any pumps that are square toe like that? The seam seems like it might look odd when they are on the foot. I'd love to see them on.

  21. I'm in favor of interesting clothing alterations.

  22. I love billowy tops too! You can style them to make them stay billowy or not... there are endless ways to wear them!

    Also, I always love your accessories!

  23. I love the color combination of your outfit. You wear these colors pretty well. The belt just pull everything together. Great outfit!

  25. I wasn't into wearing belts, until I started seeing it paired with these billowy type tops! Your outfit looks great in this post! I say try and get one tailored and compare it against your other ones and decide if it was worth it!

  26. WOW, love those nail colors, so catchy:) and that ring of yours is so prettieeeeeeeeeee:D love your style!
