It’s officially FALL!!! (I need to say that more often because I find it weird to say Fall instead of Autumn even after a year living here.) These boots are going to feature so often in my Fall Fashions, I just know it! I found them at the Blue Diamond Road Ross store for only $16.99. They’re 8.5 and I usually wear a size 7 or 7.5. But with thick hiking or thermal socks, they worked perfectly! I was a little unwilling to let them go because they were the only pair there. The zippered back makes slipping in and out of them so easy too! My only grief with them is that the soles are a little smooth and I did slip a little at the grocery store. Probably need to get something to increase traction before I wear them on slippery cold surfaces.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey tank top from OLD NAVY

Outerwear: Mint green cardigan from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Pink statement necklace from FOSSIL; Brown pleather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Dark beige moto boots from MADDEN GIRL

Summer aka shorts-season is almost over and soon it’ll be cardigan season (my favourite)! Got about 2 or 3 more weeks to bare legs – shorts and skirts, before I start covering up slowly. My favourite thing to wear right now are shorts. These denim shorts = best purchase this summer! Got it on sale at OLD NAVY for only $14 and I think I’ve worn them so much, they’ve practically paid for themselves!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Red butterfly-sleeved top with white embroidery from FOREVER21 PLUS

Accessories: Mint green & silver multi-strand bead necklace from ACCESSORIZE; Black flower barrette from Forever21

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black platform sandals from STEVEN BY STEVE MADDEN

This is one of those dresses I hardly wear because I never brought it back to Singapore. I ordered it online and it got sent to Las Vegas sitting here for a month or so until I visited T (this was before we were married). I wore it once during a holiday here then I went back to Singapore for months, leaving it behind. Then I came back again and wore it another one time before the weather turned and it was too cold to wear again until now… hahaha… Poor neglected dress.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green sleeveless dress from DELIA*S

Outerwear: Black batwing cardigan from COTTON ON

Accessories: Grey Chinese knot necklace from 2014happy5866 on eBay; Beige & neon pink stretchy belt from H&M

Bag: Purple polka-dotted clutch from WISHFUL THINKING on etsy.com

Footwear: Purple sparkly ballet flats from STEVE MADDEN

IMG_6452How do you like our little yard? It’s mostly brown because we live in the desert but I decided to take pictures here because the landscaping guys just came in to tidy it up and it looks neat!

One thing though, you have to go in and out quickly or you will burn! Summer in the desert is no joke. I have my minimum of SPF 50 for the body and I also try to cover my arms when it gets too hot because I get all freckly!

What I’m wearing:

Top: Green/White striped task with fabric flower detail from KATE SPADE

Outerwear: Dark grey cardigan from LURVE HANDLES

Accessories: Brown faux-leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bottom: Barnswallow Cuffed-Twill Boyfriend shorts from OLD NAVY

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

I like colours and I love them clashing or bold. Sometimes though, I like them matchy-matchy. I love that pinks and purples work for my skin tone (whatever that means LOL).

This is what I wore to go to Walgreens to collect my prescription and uhm.. buy toilet bowl cleaner from the 99c Only Store on Blue Diamond. So exciting, right? Hahahahaa…
