You know those people who simply radiate cool? Well, you can add Vancouver-based model turned blogger Vanessa Hong to the list. This bleach-blonde babe is keeping very busy on Instagram this summer — and edgy, monochrome outfits abound. On her handle, @thehautepursuit, she can often be found posing in her minimalist wares against visually arresting backdrops (like the white-brick wall featured here).
But, don't be fooled: Hong isn't an ordinary fashion blogger, linking out to the products featured in her 'grams. She also plays curator to online retail space THPSHOP. Dedicated to trend-driven apparel and accessories, the e-shop is updated each month with items handpicked by Hong — like the pearl jewelry currently populating her snaps. If you like what you see ahead, follow her feed for plenty more pared-down styling cues — and shop a few of the looks, too.
