What I’m wearing today:

Top: Floral ruffles top from The Garden Collection by H&M

Bottom: Black “Skinny” jeans from NEXT

Accessories: Pink bangle from Sonia Rykiel for H&M; Black beaded choker from some random street shop

Footwear: Black strappy heels from CAMPER

I can’t rock this look. I think the blouse will have to go. I really love it but it’s not my style. Also these jeans are supposed to be skinnies or at least that’s what the label at the back says. But I guess I’m so weirdly shaped that it only fits at the waist and it’s too loose around my legs. Gaaah!!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: White sleeveless top with bird print from WAREHOUSE

Bottom: Blue ankle grazer jeans from NEXT

Accessories: Natural rattan weave bangle from ISLAND SHOP; Parrot earrings from eBay; Gold weave rope brooch from eBay

Footwear: Black Donna Lola Round Toe Flats from GEOX

I like today’s outfit and I wish I could dress like this everyday without being too boring. I’m trying not to cover my legs too often because they are so pasty white compared to the rest of me. Our tropical sun is nasty to the likes of me with fair-skin. Despite using a high SPF sunscreen, I still get red. I hate it!

Today I went to check out the French Connection sale at Wisma Atria and ended up with 1 dress, 1 bolero-like jacket, 2 tops and a set of gold & silver bangles. Total damage = less than SGD250. If you live in Singapore, check it out. Satisfaction guaranteed. Tip – don’t look at the sizes on the tags, go with your feel & TRY IT ON! I tried on stuff that were size 10 & 12 even though I’m usually a UK16/18.

I haven’t been inspired enough in the last few days and I’ve just been plucking things off the rack without much thought. Dressing up is tough (yeah… just like walking, right left right left). I slept much better last night and only had to get up once, so I don’t look as bad as I did in the last few days.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Multi on Grey 3/4 sleeve top from FRENCH CONNECTION

Bottom: Blue ankle grazer jeans from NEXT

Accessories: Bracelet handmade by JUANITA TORTILLA; Gold bow necklace from DIVA accessories.

Footwear: Turquoise blue LEIA flats from CAMPER shoes
