Feelin' a little country/BuddyHolly today

Feelin' a little country/BuddyHolly today

Hello I think I’m back temporarily. Sorting out my busy work schedule on top of managing my running, AND moving to a new place. Anyway, this is what I wore today.

Say hello to my Country-Folk vibes

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Green/Grey/White checkered shirt dress from CLOCKHOUSE

Footwear: Grey quilted flats from CHOCOLATE SCHU BAR

Accessories: Wicker bag (borrowed from Elizabeth); Plastic square-rimmed glasses (for real, with prescription) from NEW CHINA OPTICAL (these are Ray Ban knock-offs called “Roc Ban” and written in the same font – it kills me! hahahaha!)

My shoes are giving way. I’ve been wearing them so much, they’ve lost their shape. I’ve also worn down the heel so much that the quilting has come apart at the sole. I’m planning to get new everyday-flats soon. And because I haven’t been posting, here’re some extras taken today! I went to the shops at Raffles City Shopping Centre earlier and tried a few things on even though I haven’t got the moolah to spend on anything.

This is a retrospective post. This set of pictures was taken by Rydwan in his East Finchley home in London. It was actually VERY VERY COLD and my teeth were chattering when we took these pictures in the garden.

I'm a flasher!!! For that 30sec, I almost froze to death

I haven’t had time nor the inspiration to do my WIWT pictures. I’ll probably rehash the outfits next week because they’re actually quite nice. 😛

These are test shots. Trying out a new combination that I just came up with… just because I got my new Mulberry for Target Pink Leopard Print tote!! I paid SGD 169 for them through a friend’s friend. It’s so cute I LOVE IT!

What do you think? I might wear this to work tomorrow (with the tags cut-off of course) or… I might come up with something else.
