This is what I wore yesterday when I had to get some lab work done at the doctor’s office (i.e. blood work for my diabetes). It’s not quite summer yet but there are some days where it’s so hot here, it might as well be Summer – I’m talking about 40degC days… Can die lah! So while I do slap on the sunscreen – especially on my face, even when I’m just home ALL DAY, I cannot layer up anymore. I bare arms and legs to the unforgiving desert sun in Nevada.

What I wore yesterday:

Top: Rainbow mosaic tank top from H&M

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Red beads and cowry shell necklace from herphotoblog by Seraphina & Co; Fuchsia bangle from Sonia Rykiel pour H&M; Brown cat-eye shades from RAY BAN; Black pleather weave belt from thestreetsofbangkok

Footwear: Taupe sueded ballet flats from OLD NAVY

As you can tell from the most recent outfit posts, I haven’t really plonked down any moolah for new stuff lately. Partly because I’m always home and I haven’t got anywhere to wear these nice, new things to (YET); and because I’ve got so many clothes that I haven’t had the chance really maximise what I already own (I did give 2 bags away to the nearby Goodwill).

But style is style, it doesn’t require NEW and TRENDY things ALL THE TIME. When I was a school teacher, I was so obese and broke (and clueless) that I had maybe all of 4 outfits that I rotated in and out all year long. It was as if I was also required to wear a uniform like the students. And I know a number of my ex-students read this blog – AREN’T YOU GLAD THOSE DAYS ARE OVER? You don’t have to see me wearing clunky Doc Marts with black trousers and untucked long-sleeved collared shirts anymore!

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
