Autumn Flower Power

Managed to escape from Singapore this weekend to one of my favourite cities, London. A city full of charm, character and elegance where everything is almost picture perfect. And I could not have asked for better company roaming around the streets of London than the wonderful @meanderingmacaron.

Needless to say it was the perfect time to visit with autumn in full swing, giving me a great excuse to pull out the thigh high boots and layer with my favourite item of the season, the coveted denim jacket! Unfortunately for me, walking around London in 10cm heels was probably not the most practical of ideas as after about 30min my ankles were destroyed to say the least. Thankfully @meanderingmacaron and I managed to find a pair of affordable Zara loafers to continue our walk about that made an unexpectedly pretty nifty look.

So which look do you prefer? The planned thigh high boots or the accidental loafers?

New York, New York #NYFW

New York, how I hated you and grew to love you I will never know. You made me feel like an ant in a really big big world where everything is seemingly larger than life. Perhaps I was just intimidated until I got to know you. Guess it's kind of what people say when they meet me and then finally get to know me. Perspective.

Needless to say I was beyond happy to be back in the Big Apple. Seemingly, it's always a must when headed to the US. And this time, New York had a special surprise! It was New York Fashion Week! Completely unplanned as I was in the US for a family wedding. Coincidence or fate? I'd like to say fate. After all everything in life happens for a reason. A constant chain reaction of events. 

Of course I couldn't attend any shows, after all I am a 'no-one' that just happens to be a fashion addict but that wasn't gonna stop me from soaking up the vibrant bustle and excitement that is NYFW. So I kitted up, headed down to meat packing district to check out The Shop @NYFW where friend and talented artist Bradley Theodore had an incredible mural on the shop wall! If you don't know his work,  check it out. You will fall in love! 

So aside from checking out the official shop, I got to do a bit of shopping, walk the High Line and get a taste of the NYFW buzz with bloggers and fashionistas roaming the city streets.  I wore my favorite new skirt from Pinko plus a detailed leather jacket finished with sneakers. Of course everything I was wearing was last season, but hey who cares? Plus as an added bonus, I managed to actually get some style compliments! Score!

Hollywood Chic

A mix of trendy locations and a laid back atmosphere, make Lalaland the perfect place to mix style and comfort! Pairing comfy satin trousers with sporty side stripe details with a floral pattern twist together with a frilly white cotton top make for a formidable combination. To add to that laid back feeling, a pair of comfy white sneakers were the way to go. Finished off with a pair of 60's inspired sunglasses and a statement bag to add a touch of fun, I definitely felt like my very own movie star. The star of my own story! The star of my life!

Denim Mini Come Back

As you may know mini skirts and me are like oil and water. We just don't quite mix well mostly due to my cellulite laden leg complexity. Something I should probably seriously consider doing something about, but that's for another day. Getting back to me and the mini skirt... the summer holiday spirit coaxed me into whipping out my denim mini from over 10 years ago and braving my cellulite to the world. Thankfully for me, I still just about managed to squeeze myself into them! To give the old mini an update, I paired it with a black slogan t-shirt, long white oversized vest, yellow coloured canvas tote, gladiator sandals and a pair of 60 inspired sunnies.

Red Pleats #Love

So when the whole pleats thing became a trend, I wasn't convinced that is was for me. It just wasn't my style until I waltzed into Zara one afternoon and found this beautiful red pleated skirt. It was love at first sight! The skirt literally screamed "Buy me! Buy me!". So naturally I listened ;)

The cries of "Buy me! Buy me!" quickly became "Wear me! Wear me!" resulting in this cool casual street ensemble sporting another in season trend of the bomber jacket.

I personally love it! Now I want the white pleated skirt too that's at Zara. Gonna pop it into my list of items to buy at the next sale!

Braving Shorts

Anyone who knows me knows I have a phobia for wearing shorts thanks to my wonderful cellulite ridden untoned thighs, so its a big surprise that the shorts came out of my wardrobe today. And to be honest, I loved wearing this look! Casual, comfy and fun! 

Let's Get Military

Currently obsessed with my new military jacket from Pinko. It's the new favorite piece in my wardrobe! Styled with a simple white polo jersey and jeans, it adds an updated fun and understated cool chic to an otherwise ordinary outfit. The best part of the jacket is the back!

Ripped Jean Staple

Usually when I have no clue what to wear, want to make an effort to get dressed up but couldn’t care less cause I'm just plain lazy… my instant go to are my ripped jeans, white shirt and pumps. Why? It creates an effortless casual chic look that actually is comfortable. Best of all you can always change up the look with different jackets, pumps and bags. Don’t be afraid to try daring colours and have fun!

Monochrome Loving

If you know me well, you will know that I am obsessed with the colours black and white. But then again who isn't slightly obsessed with those colours? Lets be honest ;)

So to change up my monochrome loving, I added a touch of colour and fun with a printed white shirt from Desigual. Let me know what you think by posting a comment below.
