STUD PERFECTION

Happy weekend lovers

Never mind the bed hair in these photographs because this post is all about the shoes. I purchased these to die for stilletto heel studded boots whilst I was in Barcelona not long ago. I can’t even tell you how many shops I’d browsed in before I found these on the sale rack. It was love at first sight so it only seemed fitting to pair it with my other fashion loves – the crop top and boyfriend jeans.

These boots will form a part of my winter wardrobe staples and I can’t wait to rock them with other stylish ensembles.

Thanks for dropping by all and let me know what you think of the outfit too.

RELAXED

Hello everyone!

When I came across these denim joggers in Zara at the Hong Kong airport, I grabbed them off the rack without even thinking twice. I mean, hello elasticated joggers made from denim!

Easily paired, I decided to tax my husbands top and beanie to create the perfect street/off-duty look. Indeed it’s far more casual than most of the looks on my blog, although I can assure it’s also the most comfortable outfit I’ve sported. I just wish the joggers came in different colours.

METALLIC SPARKLE

Hello hello

It’s been 316 days since I have updated my wardrobe with any new piece of clothing. I am amazed with myself because the me last year didn’t know how to keep her wallet closed.

This year has been about creating my own sense of style with a wardrobe full of old clothes. What I’ve called my contribution in minimising the environmental impact on my part. With this experience I’ve descovered items I have never worn or seen in a while. Then suddenly it feels like you have won something when you get a hand me down like the dress I’m wearing, because sometimes you do just want something else to wear.

Although this outfit is quite simple, the beauty is in the details. From the metallic pattern in the dress to the leather look collar and lapel in the blazer. Whilst this combination makes for a great Autumn look, I'm rocking this outfit in Spring because it's not that warm. The beauty of not conforming to what's on trend.

THAT SKIRT!

Hey all

I started blogging when my daughter was a mere 10 months old. She wasn’t so mobile at that stage so taking photographs without the constant photo bombing just never happened until recently. My little one now loves to step in front of the camera and say ‘cheeese’. At first, I found it a distraction but now, I love it and as you can see we get the opportunity to take some fabulous yet candid mother and daughter snaps.

I think these photographs are so wonderful (biased of course), that I may feature her more often on my blog going forward. What do you think?

My outfit, was all for the Master Chef High Tea experience at Crown Entertainment Centre yesterday. The sun was shining so it only felt appropriate to be wearing something with so much colour. I was also quite excited about giving this skirt a whirl for the first time. It was an impulse buy about 3 years ago and after I bought it, I fell pregnant so there you go. Excuses aside, buying clothes but not necessarily wearing them was an old habit of mine and thank goodness I have kicked it to the curb by committing to my new years resolution.

My blog does feature quite a few maxi skirt meets hi-tops looks as seen here and here. The sneakers are mostly for comfort and height (so perfect, it avoids having my skirt dragged along the floor) but I also love that it screams feminine meets street style when paired with a skirt.

LIKE A BOY

Hope everyone is enjoying the week thus far!

I put this look together knowing that I needed to be presentable and comfortable since I was going to be at work and on my feet all day. As you can see, the combination of trousers, blazer, flats and short hair can create quite the cool preppy and androgynous looking girl. I’ve have experimented with a mix of colours but aside from that, my outfit is quite basic with nice blend of simple details.

CLASH OF THE FLOWERS

Clash of the flowers2Clash of the flowers1Clash of the flowersClash of the flowers3Clash of the flowers5

Hello everyone

My friends often wonder how on earth I manage to get dressed, put my face on, sort my daughter out and take photographs for my blog before heading to work each day. While I’m pleased that we make it look effortless, it basically takes practice, effort, planning and a partner that helps out to make sure we are out the door quickly and in the office by 8am. Mind you, most days we get up at 7am and that’s a sleep in.

Any parent will tell you that some mornings are more tougher than others but,  I can honestly say that there isn’t one morning since my daughter has been born that I haven’t woken up with a smile on my face. Parenting and being a mum is soo bad yet so good at the same time and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My little one has made me a better person…a more appreciative person and someone that is more considerate and less selfish. Now I get to see life through her innocent eyes and have also re-discovered the child in me through our play dates. It’s absolutely amazing and I feel so lucky to have a beautiful girl and a husband that not only loves me to bits but helps me to get my shit together every single day.

Believe it or not, my lack of time in the mornings is a contributing factor to my creative sense of style or lack of. Unless I plan what I am going to wear the next day the night before, like this morning, I quickly put one together and what generally matters most is my choice of bag and shoes. When I’m rushed, all I know is that I want my outfit combination to be different to what I’ve worn previously. That is my thought process and it helps me with making a decision on what to wear in record time.

So guys, never mind my handbag…what do you think about todays clashing florals and my lime green pumps?
