Are you excited to go back to school? I guess not! Back when I was a student, having summer vacation was a luxury that I couldn’t live without. As much as I enjoy prancing around the streets in shorts and sandals, I hated the fact that I had to hide them in the closet by the time I got back to campus.

If there is one color that represents R.I.P. summer, I’d always go for black. Chic, sleek and very edgy, you cannot go wrong with this heat-absorbing hue. Believe me, it will help your #ootd game as it contrasts beautifully against the sun.

Well, if you are not the type to wear black during the summer, you can always work things up in small doses. Whether it be a pair of shorts and an off-the-shoulder crop top or a classic minidress, you can never go wrong when it’s all black.

Lapis - (n.) a layer Shrek once said that "onions have layers" as he was peeling one. Like an onion, I have layers. Born in Jakarta and raised in Singapore, I grew up being surrounded in a multicultural environment. Then, I moved to the States, where I lived in NYC and L.A. The creativity, hustle, bustle and vibe of those cities inspired me to become a blogger, journalist and influencer. Writing by day and living it up by night, I slay in the streets one OOTD at a time. Full-face makeup included, too. ;)
