Happy Monday! Hope everyone has a great start to the week. Just a quick post on my #ootd over the weekend. To be honest, I have never matched blue with yellow in my outfit before so I was pleased at how well the color combo turned out for this look.
Growing up in Singapore, I have met many girls who are petite and almost every one of them complain about their height at some point. Although I am even shorter than most of them and admire ladies who are blessed in the height department, I don’t see a benefit in complaining about a physical attribute I can never change. Rather, I believe it is more constructive to find ways to look better and dressing well is the key.
I have been seeing more designs with ruffles recently which is bad news for my wallet as I absolutely adore such feminine details. This lovely blue dress is a find at a small booth located in the city, from a Singapore label that I have never heard of. Rental of a retail space, even if it is just a booth, is very expensive in Singapore and I really feel for small local businesses which have to face extreme challenges to survive. So when I realized that the dress is from a local brand, I decided to purchase it even when there are no available changing rooms to try on the dress to see if it fits. While it may just be a dress that costs less than a concert ticket, a sale like this can mean a lot to a small business owner.
I am not someone who follow traditions much so I have to admit that it is a total coincidence that I was wearing this palm print overall dress on Palm Sunday. Though unintended, I was actually quite delighted that the outfit is so befitting of the occasion. In a sense, I felt as though I was commemorating the occasion in my own way. Saint Patrick’s Day happened to be just a few days ago too and this look would have fit into the customary practice of wearing green, don’t you think?
Happy Mid-week, just a quick post on my #ootd last weekend.
Spring is the time to welcome vibrant colors back into our wardrobe and I thought it will be fun to match a colorful top with a vibrant skirt to create that bright and eye-catching outfit! This pleated skirt from Topshop (about two seasons ago) is one of my absolute favorites as it’s flattering and I love how it flows with the wind whenever I parade it. I love Topshop’s skirts, and their current metallic pleated midi skirt in light pink or gold from their Petite Collection is gorgeous too, don’t you think? This Topshop Jersey Pleated Midi Skirt in Dusty Pink is also a very beautiful piece!
If you live in a warm climate like I do, you may find it impossible to rock the layering style that is so popular and essential in cold countries. While there are definitely limitations, I like to think of ways to layer my outfits whenever I am in the mood.
Are you the type of girl who likes glamorous styles, or one who prefer something more relaxed?
Do you wear a maxi dress to work? I think it is totally possible and while there are several ways to pull it off (e.g. think along the lines of matching with professional shoes and adding a blazer) , the best method is to choose maxi dresses with timeless silhouettes as well as solid colors or classic prints.
Happy Monday everyone! Just a quick post today of my #ootd over the weekend.
Sometimes, I wonder if people actually celebrate Valentine’s Day anymore. I know friends who are so busy at work that they don’t even remember that 14 Feb is Valentine’s. And there are others who find this occasion too commercialized to hold any true value. Being a romantic at heart, I am the kind of person who jumps at any opportunity to celebrate love so celebrating Valentine’s Day is significant to me. No matter how long a couple has been dating or married, I believe it is important to keep the relationship romantic. Spending Valentine’s Day together in a meaningful way can be a powerful, albeit small, gesture in this respect.
