October is here, and lord knows it doesn’t even feel like it in the slightest! It feels as though summer still ought to continue, which is strange for me to even think like that. I love the colder seasons and autumn / winter is my favourite transitional period, by far. With that said , I have recently found myself clearing out, or probably more so discovering a lot of pieces in my wardrobe that I haven’t worn, ever, despite the fact that they have been sitting there for a good few years. It was only fitting to get this particular dress out especially now that we are in Autumn. It’s another shock even to myself that I opted for such a colour palette as usually I very much stick to far more desaturated tones, and tend to layer ALOT. I guess change is always good, or atleast that’s what they say.
The aim of this post was to show more than anything that you are able to mix high street with high end so easily. Accessorising doesn’t have to over power your outfit, which is what most people mistakingly do. Don’t let the designer brands scream from your outfit. The key is to make them blend well, and look effortless. That and theres nothing more tacky than a designer logo standing out saying “Hi everyone, i’m here!!”.

A long-overdue blog post is finally here. Recently I find myself wearing ALOT of grey is all different kinds of shades and tones, and i guess this post represents that fairly well. Weather has also been off and on as of recent so i find myself trying to find the right balance between being warm yet not too warm, yet not too cold either. It’s been a tough task, thats for sure. Today I wore my favourite jacket and sandal, alongside my comfy pair of ripped jeans. Take a look below to see how I pieced it all together, and where everything is from. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Good afternoon, all.
What a great weekend it has been. Sunshine has been out in full force and everyone is super happy and friendly where ever you go. The atmosphere is so great. Of course, where there’s atmosphere theres also great food, which is even more of a reason to have a great weekend. Today I wanted to look good, feel comfortable and not feel agitated by the warm weather. I opted for silk shorts and a semi-sheer long oversized shirt. The outfit in general was extremely breathable and made the whole day effortless. Again, I have Zara to thank for this. I will definitely be living out of these shorts in the summer – they’re so easy and quick for the days that you just want to get ready and get the day started. Not to mention perfect for holiday season. Today was also a makeup-free day for me in order to grab some colour on my skin. Naturally, a perfect pair of sunglasses are never too far either!

It’s hitting 18 degrees, and nothing beats making the most of days like these. For me, I like to feel comfortable yet have the perfect outfit to carry through into the evening. In this case my ASOS dungarees are perfect to piece anything with . Today I opted for a light and breathable tie-dye top from Zadig and Voltaire along with my vintage mint green heels, which are super comfy with there small heel and rounded front. This is the perfect way to add a touch of colour if your used to your grey/black toned clothing palette, as I am after the winter we have had. To finish the look off I decided to put on some gold jewlery for a change, as I find myself more comfortable with silver usually. However, gold seems to be perfect for the sunshine especially with the perfect handbag which fits in all your essentials. So, heres how I mixed designer labels with high street in order to create the perfect day to evening outfit!

Good evening darlings!
I am now, officially, dissertation free which means far more blogging. With this amazing weather we are currently getting its even more of a reason to blog more, so there really are no excuses on my part. Aside from burying myself in the corner of the room in order to complete my dissertation I have been lucky enough to explore many projects, which soon shall be revealed!
Today I wore one of my favourite pieces from zara which was this white skirt, which is just to die for. Its super comfy and looks great with pretty much anything which is great for a casual and cant be bothered morning. I pieces this together with designer Uma’s amazing fluffy and embellished pink bomber jacket which is ideal to jazz up any outfit. (Take a look at her website where you can view her previous collections. Keep an eye out as her new collection is soon to be live on http://www.umakangai.com). Of course no look is complete without a comfy pair of shoes, and zara again does not disappoint! Whats in your spring wardrobe?

Good evening, all. I hope the day has been treating you all well despite this horrid weather we are currently getting. Each day seems to be filled with nothing but rain and a ridiculous amount of wind. Naturally when fighting through this wind i’m left feeling like i’ve just endured an intense time at the gym. The wind is certainly a battle in itself! With that in mind I wanted to do a blog post which pretty much summed up my week. I’ve been walking around with wet hair, same-colour outfits, and as always a warm coat to finish an outfit. I also found that despite this weather my zara babies have served me extremely well. For me, they are my favourite winter boots which keep you both warm and on trend. Today I paired my boots with some jeans which I decided to destroy and cut myself, which have now become my new comfy pairs of jeans which if I could, I would wear everyday (if my legs didn’t get so cold, that is)! To finish, my Acne Studio turtle neck made this outfit complete, which balanced the cold and warmth elements to the outfit perfectly.

As I woke up this morning I saw nothing but sunshine peer through my blinds. It felt like a summers mornings. Of course, I couldn’t have been more wrong. As warm as it looked from the inside out, it was in actual fact a day where the cold caught the back of your ears and sent a breeze through your body. With that in mind I had to have an element of how I felt waking up and how it actually was within my outfit. I kept the warm elements through my long vintage fur coat and denim jeans. The element of summer and warmth was done through and orange palette which followed through my bag, ring and shirt. The bag and coat in particular holds a great deal of sentimental value to me. They belong to my grandmother who recently passed them down to me, which were originally purchased in Singapore for her by my Granddad. Theres nothing I love more than hearing their stories behind the things they still own till this day. Old photographs, pictures of singapore and the stories play a huge role in the way in which I dress, today. I recently also got my hair cut, which to me is much shorter than before. I managed to bring myself to have 4 inches taken off, and I have to say it feels so much better. I think in general, this month has been one of change, which is great. 2014 is off to a great start, which I hope applies to you all too.
