Basic-ally









H&M cropped top, Urban Outfitters bralette (similar here), Uniqlo jeans (similar here), Nike free runs, Forever 21 sunglasses

UPDATE: I'm selling some stuff from my closet on my Facebook page! Everything is under $10. I promise.

Sometimes, less is more. I don't mean less clothing, but I mean, keeping it simple. When I first started blogging, I always thought that I had to be extremely innovative and creative to really stand out amongst the crazy amounts of fashion bloggers out there. And it began to take a toll on me because I was stuck between being your average broke college (now, post-grad) girl on a strict budget and being a blogger keeping up with the latest fashion trends and styles. Somehow along the way, I lost myself and the reason why I started this blog. So after some serious reflection, I realized that it shouldn't be so much about keeping up or competing as it is about simply showcasing what fashion means to me and sharing one of greatest hobbies: styling. 


Anyways, I put that little introduction in there because 1) I was running out of things to write about since my life is boring and 2) this outfit is basic and average but it's still something I'd like to post up. I mean, we all have our simple days where all we want to do is throw on a tee and pair of jeans and call it a day, which is essentially what I did here. In fact, pairing basic pieces and keeping a monochrome color palette just so happens to be a popular look these days. White denim is a summer staple and just makes you pop instantly in the sun, especially if you happen to be just as tan as I am. I had to pair it with $5 knit crop top from H&M because the color wasn't so solidly gray but had hints of different shades as well. But since it was pretty loose (and I accidentally got a size too big), I wore my maroon bralette underneath since a bra would just look messy. And on simple days like these, my trusty Nike's are always my favorite. I'm seriously in love with them because they're so functional and completely comfortable.

A simple look for a casual Sunday.

Basic-ally yours,
Mai Sunshine

Style Tip: If you're more on the shorter side like me, then you probably understand my frustration with bunched up jeans at the ankle. That's why I like cuffing them up because not only does it solve the mess but also makes you appear taller when you show a bit of ankle.
