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!

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.

Jungle Fever

Since the premiere of the The Jungle Book movie last month, there has been the launch of the Kenzo Jungle Book collection plus a beautiful new collection from Vuitton called Tropical Journey taking inspiration from the jungle. It thus comes as no surprise that I caught Jungle Fever too! My jungle inspired look consists of a tropical green and black jumpsuit paired with simple black sandals for an effortless casual dressed down look.

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!

LBP: Little Black Playsuit

Move over LBD, LBP is so much more fun! For starters, it's makes for a great effortless chic casual look. Coupled with a pair of statement gladiator sandals and a bright coloured body bag you're good to go from day to night.

What is your preference LBD or LBP? Post a comment below and let me know.

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!

Explorer Chic

Even if you're out exploring, who said you can't be stylish? I beg to differ. Keeping it simple with a plain white tee and jeans paired up with statement sunnies, a fun necklace and a big hat! Not only was I super comfy but the outfit was practical allowing me to respectfully enter the pagodas and of course climb up a few to enjoy the beauty of Bagan (Myanmar).
