About 2 months ago, I saw this post by Jolene of Boardroom Blonde and remembered that I too owned that very same dress. I wasn’t expecting to buy anything that fateful day last December when my family were here visiting but the Las Vegas Premium Outlets do have very attractive prices and this Kate Spade dress was a little more than USD40 after multiple discounts (that’s including taxes!) And if you haven’t realised by now, I’m still trying to stretch my wardrobe instead of succumbing to getting an entirely new one with my maternity needs. This is a regular-sized dress. Very flattering cut. Stretchy and swingy. The elasticised waist is perfect right now! The orange chevron stripes – so cheery and Spring!IMG_1480

What I’m wearing:

Dress: Orange chevron striped dress from KATE SPADE

Accessories: Orange/Pink/White flower brooch from FOREVER21

Footwear: Red strappy platform sandals from ZARA WOMAN

Being frivolous is getting more difficult when there are so many issues in your life you can’t take lightly. The point of this blog is to document life’s more trivial pursuits and instead there are so many ranty-tanty things I would like to write about, so let me try this again. Here’s something silly that I threw together about a week ago.

Outerwear: Mustard yellow chiffon jacket from a nonameshop in Far East Plaza

Accessories: Pink/Blue wooden bead necklace from FOREVER21

Footwear:Dark taupe moto boots from MADDEN GIRL

The weather just turned overnight. Literally. It was in the mid-30s (Celsius) one day and the next, it was under 20! So sweat shirts are in and shorts are out!!! T is still wearing t-shirts and shorts for now but he puts on an extra shirt when he leaves the house to walk Max with me. I, on the other hand, wear an additional scarf when walking outside. I wore this outfit to do my groceries – which means driving from point to point and only being exposed to the elements for short periods under a minute from car to store. Other than that, I need to beef it up.

What I’m wearing:

Top: Grey spectacles-print sweat shirt from FOREVER21Plus

Bottoms: Grey leggings from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Pink bauble statement necklace from FOSSIL

Bag: Pink bow and black trim beige bag from BETSEY JOHNSON

Footwear: Turquoise classic sneakers from SUPERGA

This is what I wore today running errands. I went to the Post Office again because I’ve been mailing out packages. Other than doing house things as housewifey as I get, I also help out with some of the more boring parts of T’s business – filing receipts, taking care of his stock of merchandise and mailing stuff out. His game Axiom Verge has a playable demo in North American retailers now. Go check out a Sony Playstation kiosk in a store – Best Buy, Target, Game Stop etc. Support indie developers! Buy a t-shirt or some buttons HERE.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Silver sleeveless top from Apt. 9

Accessories: Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bottom: Black swing mini skirt with waist-band details from FOREVER21

Footwear: Red strappy platform sandals from ZARA WOMAN

Accessories: Neon yellow string earrings from FOREVER21; Multi-coloured shards necklace from LOUCHE ACCESSORIES; Set of 4 coloured bangles from PRIMARK; Large Pink bangle from SONIA RYKIEL POUR H&M

Bottom: Black swing skirt with smocked waist from FOREVER21 (this is a recent purchase so it’s probably still in stores)

Footwear: Brown Kandy Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu

I was actually surprised at how comfortable this combination is. I’m rather fond of just throwing things on and winging it for the day unless I’m very uncomfortable – ladies, you understand the problems of stuff riding up and tugging right? This might be an ensemble I would wear again soon… then again *koffkoff* Sometimes I just plain forget.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey and white striped 3/4 knit top from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Blue/pink wooden bead necklace from Forever21 (a recent purchase); Pink stretchy bow belt from H&M

Bottom: Blue chambray skirt from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black strappy heels from URBAN OUTFITTERS (Kimchi Blue)
