IMG_5967You would be forgiven for thinking that I must be crazy for wearing a cardigan in the middle of Summer, especially since I live in the desert. Here’s the thing though – it might not look like it, but it’s a really light cardigan worn to the brink of death! It’s pilling and shows its age upclose. I bought this in Singapore and if you can imagine tropical humidity and heat, this cardigan is actually quite breathable. I love it! So glad I brought it here with me when I returned in April to pick up my stuff.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black/White polka dot top from UNIQLO x Lulu Guinness

Outerwear: Black batwing open cardigan from COTTON ON

Accessories: Black pleather belt with silver buckle from H&M; Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

IMG_5971This hat came in July’s Popsugar Must Have Box. It’s a brown straw hat with a wire brim so you can adjust it as you wish. I would’ve have bought it if I didn’t get it free (it costs USD48) and I was actually quite undecided about keeping it so at the time of these pictures being taken, the Michael Stars tag wasn’t removed yet. I’m keeping it because it’s useful to wear a hat in the desert summer especially since I walk Max everyday. But the real reason behind my keeping it is, T saying that he thinks it’s cute on me and wants me to wear it. So gentlemen, say nice things to your women. They are listening and they appreciate when you pick up on little things like that.

IMG_5972What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey Hello Kitty tank top from FOREVER21 Plus

Accessories: Dark brown Sea Grass Crusher hat from Michael Stars; Plastic airplanes necklace (gift from my pal Tamares); Brown faux leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bag: Pink and Beige large canvas tote from KATE SPADE

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Women’s Fastpack Paceline Mid Hiking Boot from TIMBERLAND

IMG_5645What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Blue spotty sweetheart neckline frock from H&M

Accessories: Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Bottom: Black meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Black wedge heels from ZIPIA

My pal Ryddy gifted me this dress from England and he likes women to dress with a more feminine style. So the key thing to making this dress work for me was the petticoat. I don’t have nice curvy hips (or any hips at all) so I wouldn’t be able to take advantage of the fact that this dress had a big circle skirt. This is what I call the inverted cupcake look – the frosting at the bottom, see? I would love to dress like a cupcake all the time…

IMG_5653This has been my default “travel tote”. I just dump everything I need when I’m out of state/country. Everything from my wallet and phone, to wet wipes and facial tissue, a spare cardigan or a bottle of water! I love that it’s so summery! Do you like carrying large bags?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Charcoal grey cotton jersey JULIA dress from Patricia Valery on etsy.com

Accessories: Set of 4 bangles from PRIMARKLilac acrylic statement necklace from TALISMAN’S (at Far East Plaza)

Bag: Pink and Beige large canvas tote from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Sparkly purple patent leather ballet flats from STEVE MADDEN

These shoes are quite bad for walking too long in. They’re sparkly and pretty BUT it’s constructed with a very stiff manmade material that give me blisters – maybe because my feet are too wide. My little toes on the ends will develop bunions if I wear them for extended periods. I do love them so much and carried them from Singapore to Las Vegas because they are pretty! LOL! Got them from Zalora for a steal!

Oh yes, after all that riot of bright colours and clashing prints, here’s something a little more sane. I can do regular too. I probably won’t dress like your regular 36-year old office lady type person but I can do decent and sedate when I feel like it. I think this is one of my favourite outfits – am I using the term “favourite” too liberally since everything on my blog appears to be a favourite? Who cares!

And what do people say about horizontal stripes not being too flattering? HERE’S A DOUBLE WHO CARES!!! Don’t be so self-conscious okay?

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Rugby white and grey 5/8 sleeve boatneck tee from OLD NAVY

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Accessories: Vintage teal and gold necklace from SELECT 18 (Soho, Hong Kong); Triple flower hair barrette from FOREVER21; White owl ring from DIVA ACCESSORIES

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

I hardly ever go so green but colours are colours and we should enjoy them regardless! Also, I do realise that the horizontal stripes does nothing for my winter belly fats… But this top is too cute to pass on and I got it for under USD13 at the Kate Spade store in Las Vegas Premium Outlets – North.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Green/White striped task with fabric flower detail from KATE SPADE; Black long-sleeved top from UNIQLO

Bottom: Pineapple print skirt from H&M

Leggings: Grey sheer stockings from VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

Footwear: Grey & neon yellow brogues from LE BUNNY BLEU

Bought the skirt on a whim because it’s only USD7 and the pineapple print is so silly fun!!!! Am I right? Am I right?

I’ll probably rethink the combination though. Will re-wear the pieces separately again soon to experiment.

I seriously think this dress is too long and I should chop off about 2 inches. What do you think?
