Outerwear Which Fits Any Outfit That You Should Have

Hello, Peeps! Welcome back to another post of mine which I made with sincere affection for your weekly preference. I think that sounds hyperbola however I will be showing you some fashion insight which I hope you would love!

As you might have seen on my previous vlog about my very fashion haul and sexual violence, I reckon that you noticed this one of four outers I have.

Already noticed why I love it so much? Awesome! Let me applaud for you.

This gray knitted outerwear is from Stradivarius. At first I bought it, I felt so unsure because the weather in Jakarta is utterly undeniably hot but the more often I wear it, I started loving it somehow because it always matches with any kind of outfit I wear.

As I have mentioned in the video that I like wearing sleeveless outfit in the inside, in this outfit I am wearing a black tank top from Cotton On. Since I don’t want it to look that plain, I combined it with a touch of brown leather belt from Uniqlo and a black leather bag from Marc Jacobs.


Ever since I utterly fancy monochromatic outfit, I paired the whole outfit with a white jeans from Dorothy Perkins and a white sandals from VNC that I accidentally bought in Bali because the other one was broken.

Outers can give a huge influence for your outfit from nothing to something. You also can mix and match the old clothes you have in your wardrobe so it won’t stay in dusty space anymore. I hope this article can profoundly inspire your fashion insight for your weekly preference. What kind of outerwear do you like? Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!

Smart Casual Outfit with Pink Magenta Bag You Can Rock Every Day!

First selfie on the cover image! That’s quite phenomenal because I never did it before. Haha!

This time I will be showing you how I rock a bright color bag. I have received so many complaints from my friends that they are confused of what outfit to wear when they have bright color bags thus they just play it safe by purchasing another bag with universal colors. Black? Perfectly true.

I always think sometimes we need to live out of the comfort zone because if we keep being busy swimming in the same pool, the more we grow up, the narrower the pool will be. I think my analogy for that one quite sucks but I believe you get my point. Okay, enough with the talks, here I will show you one of my favorite bright prominent color bag, Pink Magenta from Michael Kors!


Truthfully, I forgot what type of bag that I am wearing here but it surely is Michael Kors which my sister bought for me in Singapore. I really love this bag because its color is very brave which people would notice right away. Because of that, I decided to match up the super flashy color of the bag with something pastel and calmer color.


The blue and white stripes shirt I am wearing is Abercrombie & Fitch, I really like wearing this shirt to uni because it feels really comfortable and light to wear. The watch I am wearing is Alba.


And here is my favorite ripped jeans from Stradivarius and glistening flat shoes from The Executive. I got a very special offer for the flat shoes which I really fancy. I don’t play too much with colors on my clothing because I want my bag to lead the show all alone because if there is too many colors, people’s attention will get distracted and flustered whether to focus on the bag or the clothes.

Therefore, the ball is in your hand. For me, when I mix and match outfit, I always try to focus on one bright color that should be the spotlight. I understand that we all want to look stunning but frankly, no one really cares. Sometimes if you work it out too much, it will be too much for people too. Make your own runaway and try to play with colors. Oh, and you actually can make your look more glamorous by adding some jewelry.


If you see it closer, I am wearing a super heavy glistening silver necklace which I only got for 5$ in Australia. Most of my friends thought it was pricey but actually not at all. Thus it all depends on how you present it.

I hope this blogpost will profoundly inspire your fashion insight for your weekly preference. What prominent color that you like to be your spotlight? Let me know what you think on the comment below and have a great day!

Sunday Outing with Pastel Culotte

Glad to be back on blogging again! I’m pretty sure you guys must be getting bored with the same old reason I always give.

Hectic schedule.

Sorry I had to mention it again but this is utterly something that I can’t get rid of. However, I have something new for you guys!

In the first week of college, I went to some places with my sister to spend the weekend. And also, looking for new contents for vlog!

Let’s go straight to the content, so I decided to wear pastel culotte that I found in some bazaar I attended when holiday. There are varies and I love each of them.

For the white outerwear, I got it from New Look whilst the black sweater inside, I got it somewhere in Central.

Culottes are best paired with pastel high heels! I got these light pink high heels from Nine West and a watch from Alba.

Culottes have been a hype these days. There are the short ones and even the long ones like I am wearing. However, culottes may also be paired with sneakers. It feels really comfy and honestly, it makes you look slimmer. So, who doesn’t love culottes?

Tell me what’s your favorite pair with culottes on the comment below. I’d love to hear what you say 🙂

Casual Day Outfit

In this weekend’s blogpost, I would like to share how I rock outerwear (again). Perhaps, I have shared about how I rock my no-sleeve outerwear but this one is actually one of my favorite outfits which also suit for college or casual day out!


To me, outerwear is a piece of clothing that could embellish the casualty of my outfit. Imagine a girl wears a white shirt and jeans only, but when she puts an any kind of outerwear, her style has somehow been improved. And that’s why I am truly fond of this piece of clothing.

So, I went for lunch with friends last week. I had no idea what to wear since I didn’t have many clothes in my luggage. I kept searching and thinking about what I should wear that day. I only found a loose black tank top, loose black trouser and a knit brown outerwear. Since that discovery, I matched them into one outfit.

It was the outfit that I hardly kept on thinking since the remaining clothes that I had was far from many. The loose black tank top and trouser looks like in the same piece, doesn’t it? I only needed to tucked the loose black tank top in the trouser and an-almost-look-alike-jumpsuit is done.

The combination of tank top and trouser are from Cotton On (tank-top) and Colorbox (trouser). The knit outerwear that I am wearing is from H&M and the flat-shoes that I am fond of is by mango. Because I was a little bored with sling bags, I decided to wear pouch bag that I got somewhere in Penang, Malaysia. For the accessories, I only wore a watch by Alba and those cuty-tiny bracelets that you could get for 1$ – 3$ each at Cotton On.

That’s how my discovery went by when I was running out of clothes in luggage, I hope this blog-post is inspiring enough for your inspiration in dressing up. Have a great weekend! 🙂

Afternoon in La Couleur Verte

Green is the color between blue and yellow.
And I am a creature between the grown leaves on the wall and the paving block.

In this weekend’s blog-post, I wanted to share how I usually create my own hijab style.


People might call me with an ‘outer-person’. Because that’s how I rock my style since I have decided to wear hijab. It has been a year to me for wearing hijab where all of my skins are covered up with cloth. The reason why I like wearing outerwear (ex: jackets, sweaters, hoodies, blazers, coats, etc) because I think a woman can wear anything they want as long as the clothes they wear don’t really fit their shape of body. Although some people say that wearing outerwear is complicated and uncomfy but to me, it describes me.

P stands for preferential because you are special.

In this picture, it might look like I am wearing a jumpsuit but actually not. It is a separated outfit where I’m wearing long black top by The Executive and a long loose trouser by Colorbox. And for the glasses, I am wearing Le Specs. It is currently my favorite one.

And for the outer, I am wearing white outerwear by New Look. And for the flat-shoes by Mango.

That’s all for today’s blog-post! I hope my look for this weekend could inspire your style in wearing hijab. I am an outer-person, what about you? 🙂

The Difference Between Hijabi and Non-Hijabi

This time, I want to share something personal that I never thought it would happen to me. It’s a brand new day that could lead you to something that you never expected before.

And it happened to me.

That brand new day has affected my mind, my soul, my everything. I never thought that idea would pop up on my mind that easy. It came just like that. It happened after I had had sahoor on the first week of Ramadan. I was about to sleep after dawn prayer but there was something on my mind that I couldn’t stop thinking about.

“I want to start wearing hijab.”

I’m a muslim but I was a non-hijabi. I hated wearing clothes with long sleeves and wearing scarfs around my head, it just felt uncomfortable and stifling. And I also thought that I would only start to wear hijab if my morals are good in islamic way or the day after I get married. Those are the reasons why I didn’t want to wear hijab in the first place.

That thought kept spinning around my head. I got out of bed and took my laptop. I went on google and youtube to know more about hijab. There was one thing I was kinda scared of wearing hijab, the job requirement. I want to be a career woman, I’ve seen a lot of articles saying that women with scarf on their heads likely to not be accepted in a company. Especially in a company that affiliates with international companies around the world. I’ve always wanted to work in an international magazine, such as Vogue, People, New York Times, etc. I was a lil bit pissed, scared and flustered at the same time.

I googled some cases about discrimination towards hijabis in the workplace. Then there’s one case that could convince me more to wear hijab, a US Muslim who wins hijab case against Abercrombie & Fitch. But then again, I should’ve believed that everything comes from Allah and so is the fate that I’ll have in future. I should’ve not been that worried.

Second confusion is, mostly my clothes are short sleeves and body fit. And hijab clothes are 180 degrees different with the clothes that I had been wearing. I was like, “Oh bloody hell, I don’t know what to wear. I’ll just go naked. Okay”. Not literally, I was joking. I went on youtube and saw some youtubers with stylish hijab for college on daily basis. I started falling in love with hijab, I want to look different in a catchy way. By wearing hijab doesn’t mean you have to look strict like a terrorist. Just like what Angelina Jolie ‘Maleficent’ says on Kids Choice Award 2015, “Different is beautiful”.

After all various researches and considerations, I decided to wear hijab. I decided to cover up my body and by wearing hijab, it has made me realize that I have to control everything I do. And I’ve felt the difference,

I had been being a non-hijabi for 17 years 6 months. I had been showing my body parts that I should have concealed in the first place. When I wasn’t wearing headscarf or anything that cover up my whole body, I felt unprotected. I often found men staring at me with fuck-me eyes and stuff, I often got catcalled, being commented physically, being checked on by people from head to toe. That was all very annoying.

Then the day I started wearing hijab has come, I barely found men staring me at with that kind of stare anymore. I’m feeling protected and tend to keeping myself away from bad things because I’m wearing something that symbolizes my religion. Wearing hijab is not a symbol as a feminist, hijab is a shield for women in any cases.

And there’s one thing that I find it interesting on women who wear hijab, their future husband must be the luckiest guy alive because he’s the only person who knows how his wife look like beneath her hijab. I’m not saying that men who marry non-hijabis unlucky, but if you still have a chance to try hijab, why not now? I used to think that I would only start to wear hijab if I’ve finally found the one. But I’ve changed that mindset, if I want a different result, I have to make a change. I hope this good start will lead me to something which is good for my life. But I believe it will.

I hope my experience will inspire you to wear hijab and this is the decision that I’ve made to face this world (which is full of insanity). Although I’m still learning how to wear hijab properly, I’m hoping that I will never try to take it off or get myself influenced by negative circumstances to take it off. I have a belief system that asks me to cover up my body, I have a very high expectation that there’ll be no more discrimination against women with headscarf. We’re all the same, we’re human being, we have hearts, we have feelings, why hurting each other?
