Into the woods

It is now absolutely safe to say that the forest is my natural habitat. The evidence of it is apparent from the joy on my face. Look at my pictures. Look at my face.

Whenever I am outdoors in nature, the mystical, fairytale-slash-bohemian atmosphere materialises in my head. What better way is there to match the atmosphere than to dress like a bohemian fairy, especially with this beautiful two-piece set? 

With two piece sets, I have yet to find one that has made me want to run over mountains and hills, trip across a rock on the way, and hand over all my money and everything that I have. That is, until I found these matching separates from Forever21. The set has all of my favourite features; the off shoulder top, the skirt with the subtle slit and the tassels. I mean, come on guys, TASSELS! 

I kept the outfit simple and paired the co-ordinates with my go-to lace up sandals and a black choker. I finished it off with mosquito repellent and imaginary sparkly fairy dust. Voilà, perfect for strolling about in the woods. 

Off I go to explore more forest magic. Thanks for reading!

Do you guys like two-piece sets?

The Time My Boss Styled Me

It is very hard to contain my excitement and not type in caps lock because, you see, MY BRILLIANT VITAMIN-OBSESSED BOSS, PUI PUI, TOOK MY BLOG PHOTOS TODAY.

She is a boutique owner, photographer and stylist. Being a triple threat, it would only go to waste if I didn’t play dress up with her and her camera.

To be styled by someone else, let alone my boss, is the most fun and interesting experience. We started with my most favourite piece from her shop, the off shoulder dress, and I got to see another way of styling the dress from my own.

With the dress as our base, we worked on the outfit from there. “It needs a belt," she says as she starts visualising the ensemble in her head. I nod, agreeing. “And something on your head.” I nod, agreeing. “And some dangling earrings.” I no - wait, what? I don’t really wear dangly earrings so there I was, standing and feeling slightly skeptical. However, the moment she put a pair on me, it was the perfect finishing touch that we needed to complete the outfit. 

By the end of it, my creativity was enhanced tenfold, I had so many ideas and I was so inspired. I would love to do it again. I mean, I ended up getting the dress afterwards.

Have you ever been styled by someone or have styled someone before?

It is almost like I have a dysfunction in my chest. Not to be dramatic here but I swear my heart beats ferociously fast whenever it senses or notices anything with tassels on it.

I love tassels on any article of clothing, be it shoes or a dress. There are at least three pieces with tassels on them in today's attire; my kimono-inspired cardigan, my top and my bag. I feel that they add that nice bohemian touch that just finishes any piece.

Being a flower child myself, this outfit is undoubtedly one of my GO-TOs. It’s casually cute, comfortable and a combination of girly and bohemian. The best part is that it’s very me.

Now, if only I had shoes with tassels on them.

Camel Sand

         My favourite thing about winter isn’t the lack of mosquito bites or the fact that sweating is highly unlikely.  My favourite thing about winter is the fact that I get to wear berets. Oooh, and also, to drink hot chocolate. 

         Berets are my form of floppy hats for the winter season. They lend a French touch to any outfit and are so versatile in where they can either be dressed up or down, depending on the pieces it’s paired with.

          I paired mine with a more neutral, demure sand colour to really make the beret be the piece that makes the outfit. Soft colours like sand, khaki and camel have been seen at the Fall / Winter 2016 Fashion week at Chloé, Lanvin and Valentino. In this winter outfit, I combined together different shades of camels and sand to keep the browns from blending too much altogether and topped it off with my go-to shades.

          What is your favourite thing about winter?

Hunter Green

          Well, first things first, Happy New Year, lovelies!
          I’ve been quite cheeky these past few months and haven’t done much with my blog. School this year just got so crazy. Therefore, I have made a New Year resolution to better my time management and make sure I have time for everything as opposed to working with my usual, too free, “go with the flow” attitude. So, with fingers crossed, expect to see more frequent posts here.
          The New Year also means new clothes, or in my case, new pants. I always wear black pants in the winter and thus, a fair number of black pants have somehow accumulated in my closet. This pair of green pants I have on is in such a gorgeous hue; I couldn’t help but pick it up and add to my collection of only black pants and one pair of denim jeans. The color isn’t too obnoxious for when I feel like dressing darker and it also reminds me of that one line from Taylor Swift’s song, I know Places: “They are the hunters, we are the foxes.”
          I paired it with a boxy sweater that has slits halfway up the sides which helps sustain my shape and keep it from looking too boxy. I kept it simple and school-appropriate with my combat boots, backpack and a statement necklace because, honestly, who would I be without my signature must-have statement necklace in every outfit?
          What are your must-haves for any outfit?

Back to School: A turtleneck outfit

        It's amazing how fashion has managed to get away with challenging its rules once again. What was once believed to be worn just for winter, turtlenecks have now been made possible to wear in the warmer months with sleeveless and short-sleeved versions of the aforementioned winter turtlenecks. Turtlenecks are brilliant as they can amp up any outfit while lending a bit of warmth as it covers up the neck, just perfect for the chilly classrooms in school. 

       I wanted to keep the outfit quite neutral so I paired my turtleneck with simple black pieces. To break it up a bit, I added a few gold and brown accents and there you have it: my back to school ensemble.

       What do you think of my outfit?
