Blue jean classic

Blue Jean Classic | MICHALOGY

A crisp white shirt with blue jeans is a classic look that never goes out of style (cue Taylor Swift’s song).

I wore this outfit while getting my hair balayaged at Seri Hairdressers at Melbourne Central, upon my friend Maria’s recommendation.  I was lucky enough to have the manager Aaron as my hairdresser that day, and am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Aaron listened to me and took the time to explain how the dying process worked and recommended colours that would suit my natural hair, which was an improvement to my last visit to the hairdressers (a different one). I highly recommend Aaron and the rest of the team at Seri!

The lace eyelet pattern and the cropped tie adds a fun twist to the white shirt. I decided to match with white sandals which showed off my red polish pedicure at the time.

The black bomber jacket is actually a men’s extra small which was found in a op shop several months ago. The store assistant told us that all the other store workers wanted the jacket for themselves but it was too small. I guess being petite has its perks sometimes.

The red plaid lining inside adds a sneaky pop of brightness to the attire.

Flanneltine’s Day

For Valentine’s Day, I had brunch at Picnic. It’s one of my favourite cafes in South Yarra, mainly due to its reasonable prices, large glass windows letting in natural sunlight and the fact it was located about a stone’s throw away from the train station.

I wanted to wear a bit of red as a nod towards Valentine’s Day, but not something too girly. The flannel toughens the looks up and acts as a transitory space where the reds and blues blend together, before separating into the navy and maroon colour blocks of the crop top and skirt respectively. I think the final result is quite pleasing to the eye – the colours merge seamlessly together, nothing stands out too much.

Tying the flannel around my waist added another dimension to the bottom half of my outfit, and shows you don’t always have to wear shirts the way it is designed to be worn.
