Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a minimal outfit that is actually inspired by Diana from http://cruel-kid.blogspot.com. Go check her out if you haven't already, she's a super awesome German girl with killer minimal style. Anyway, two of the items in this look I received in collaboration with Zaful.com. When Zaful contacted me I was a little apprehensive, but after a quick browse on their Instagram I found that a lot of bloggers and Instagrammers were working with them, one whom I follow myself. Being the indecisive person I am, it was hard for me to choose some items from their website. I ended up going with this striped shirt and light gray backpack which I'm in love with.
On the web site this top is said to be made of "cotton blends." It looks like it'd be of a linen material and breathable, but it can get a little toasty if it's a warm day. It's also a little stiff which you can kind of tell because of how I'm wearing it tucked in. I do like the unique neckline and it hangs nicely if worn untucked with a pair of shorts and sandals (I'll probably do an outfit like this in the future so you can see the difference.)
Alsoo picked up these culottes from Forever 21. They are of a really light-weight satin/silk material so they are perfect for summer. I finally have a pair of black culottes after months and months of searching! I finished off the look with my Nike Air Force 1s and a Nike cap I found in the men's department.
Since all of the handbags I use the most are black, I decided to reach out of the box and get a gray backpack. I think it's the perfect shade that it can go with anything and would give a little pop to an all black outfit. The quality is also really nice and it comes in three other colors (yes, black is one of them).
What do you think of this outfit? What do you think of these two pieces from Zaful?
Oh...and where did June go? I honestly feel like I just posted my May Buys and now it's time to post my June Buys! Does anyone have plans for the 4th of July? (If you celebrate.) I don't, but some last minute hangout or party will ensue with my pals I'm sure.
