To be honest, my “uniform” of late has been leggings from OLD NAVY, jeans and jumpers. Most days I just want to stay home and hide under the blankets that T’s Grammy crocheted (we have 4 different ones lying around the house). You know, to stay warm. And then there’s the horrible desert dryness. I have lived most of my life in the seasonally homogenous tropical island of Singapore and then, I come here. The lack of humidity makes my hair behave but it also cracks my skin – literally, I get red welts on my body from the skin drying out and splitting. Mostly on my back because I don’t get enough lotion there.
Anyway, this brings me to my lack of outfit posts – because I’m still trying to get a hang of this climate even if I’ve been here for 1 1/2 years. I can’t figure out what to wear and how to wear what I own. And hence… the bag lady layers. So that’s my style for the next 4-6 months until the weather turns warmer in April. You’ll see lots of crazy layering because that’s how I’m going to make what I own work for me here.
What I’m wearing today:
Dress: Baby blue and white polka-dotted dress from FOREVER21
Outerwear: Mint green cardigan from OLD NAVY
Accessories: Pink/Blue wooden bead necklace from FOREVER21
Scarf: Purple knitted scarf with sequins from DELIA*S
Leggings: Neon Pink/Black Striped tights from WE LOVE COLORS (Best fat-girl tights I own!!!)
Footwear: Brown Kandy Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu
