Camel coat (similar here and here) / Red dress (similar here) / Boots

You wake up in the dark and go to sleep in the dark. It’s gloomy and colder, and on the day that I took these pictures, the rain had not stopped since morning. But I couldn’t pass on a photo op.

Autumn is here! So the boots and camel coat have made an official appearance. This coat is one of my autumn essentials. It’s warm, fitted and in a colour that represents this season well.

I wore this look to an afternoon tea on a Saturday afternoon. I had to battle the wind and rain to get there, but it was worth it in this outfit. Although red is bright and bold, it still pairs nicely with camel.

What are you wearing this season?

Ruffle Jumpsuit

Ruffle Jumpsuit / White Clutch Bag (similar here and here) / White Strappy Sandals (similar here and here)

I wore this pink striped jumpsuit to a wedding back in June. I think this has to be one of my favourite wedding guest outfits to date.

It is made from linen – a light, breathable and comfortable material, which is perfect for the summer heat.

My favourite thing about this jumpsuit is the ruffle cross-over. I doubt my love for frills will ever die. This jumpsuit would be plain without the ruffles.

I knew that I wanted to keep my accessories simple and monotone because the jumpsuit is a statement on its own. So, I wore my white strappy sandals, carried my simple white envelope clutch bag, and added gold coin drop earrings to match the gold accents on my bag. I kept my hair tied back in a ponytail so as not to distract from my outfit.

I plan to wear this jumpsuit again – possibly more toned down with white trainers for that casual look, or on holiday with slides on the beach.

Birthday Sequins

20180626_072811

Midi Sequin Kimono Dress / Rose Gold Barely There Sandals

This was my official birthday outfit. I planned to celebrate my birthday the day after by having dinner with friends, so I really wanted to look special.

I saw this gorgeous sequin kimono dress on my fave online store and knew that I didn’t want to wear anything else. The problem was that it wasn’t available in my size. Still, I saved it and when it came back in stock, I was over the moon!

I had a few hiccups with it though. It came with an insert, which was tight and restricting. Thankfully,  I went to a tailor who was able to make a new one and sew the neckline further up so that it wasn’t revealing.

I kept the look monochrome with rose gold barely there sandals.

As I said on my Instagram post, everyone should sparkle on their birthday. What do you think? Did this dress scream “birthday girl”?

Flowers on Mesh

Sorry for the delay guys. It’s almost a month since my last post. It may be this way for a while because I have to use my hubby’s laptop for the time being, so I’ll try to steal it as often as I can.

At least I managed to get hold of it to give you today’s style post. This is the first of four birthday-related posts – two about what I wore and two about food (you’ll understand) , so stay tuned for those.

I turned 27 on June 24, a Sunday. I wasn’t expecting to do anything that day because I would be spending most of it in church. However, my hubby surprised me by telling me to order a dress from my fave online store because he would be taking me to dinner that evening.

Floral Embroidered Mesh Dress With Slip / Black Barely There Heeled Sandals

I picked this delicate mesh dress with flower embroidery. There’s so much going on – the neck tie, the elasticated waist that cinched me in comfortably, and the embroidery, of course. Yet, none of this takes away from how simple and beautiful this dress is.

It actually comes as two separates – the slip and the mesh that makes the dress what it is. It’s breathable, which was ideal because it was hot that day (and has been getting hotter ever since, am I right?). I’ve actually worn the slip separately with a white t-shirt underneath, so it’s like getting two dresses for the price of one.

I kept the palette all black with my barely there sandals, which damaged the back of my left foot. Seriously! I had to ask the waitress at the restaurant for a plaster because it cut me deep. It has only scabbed over now. However, don’t panic in case you want to get the shoes. It was my fault because I didn’t secure the fastening tight enough.

I was really feeling myself because I’d gotten my hair done two days before. It was actually a momentous occasion because I haven’t been able to have braids done for the past two years due to the battle I had with eczema. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know about that. You can get clued up here.

Dinner was lovely, so like I said, stay tuned for where my hubby took me. It was really nice just being alone with him. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves – no he didn’t book the whole thing out haha; there was no one else there. But I’ve said too much already.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post! Have a great Monday.

On Repeat

Does this outfit look familiar? Remind you of the past two outfits I’ve had on my blog? I told you I’m having a t-shirt and espadrille phase.

Sorry for the repetition, but black and white, t-shirts and espadrilles are my uniform at the moment. You can’t deny the investment I’ve made with these pieces. This is what happens IRL people! I buy clothes to wear over and over again, not to wear just once. Wear it til it’s worn out. 😜

After dinner with friends on Sunday evening, I took the plunge and asked the hubby to take pictures of me outside of the house. I’ve never done that before (the last two outfit posts were shot in our backyard so that doesn’t count haha), but it was time for a change of scene, time to let go of my irrational worry of people staring at me and time to come out of my comfort zone. I finally overcame my fear.

Can you tell that I am loving slogan t-shirts at the moment? They are the easiest thing to throw on with jeans or a skirt, and I am all about ease.

DSC00325

I wore this outfit to church last week. My new espadrilles have made another appearance because they are my favourite shoes at the moment, and perfect for summer.

DSC00328

I kept the look simple with a black and white palette. This black lace midi skirt can be dressed up or down as I’ve done here. Just swap the espadrilles for heeled sandals or courts and swap the t-shirt for a blouse.

Royal

DSC00303

Who would’ve thought that I’d enjoy wearing the colour red so much? Let me tell you that for years I have been shying away from it. I thought that it didn’t suit me and it was just too bold for my taste.

But it’s only recently that I have been loving how vibrant it is. To be honest, I only have one other red item in my wardrobe, but I love it and have worn it many times.

DSC00306

I wore this outfit to a friend’s birthday, but the idea to put it all together was conceived once I laid eyes on this skirt from ASOS. I’ve never worn anything like it before, but the high waist, asymmetric midi length and the tie belt called to me.

I knew that I wanted to pair it with a t-shirt, because I am loving printed t-shirts at the moment. I wanted to follow the red theme, so this ‘Royal’ gem was perfect.

DSC00302

I have also never worn espadrilles, just admiring them from afar. And I don’t regret finally taking the plunge. They are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn! I went for a lower heel height and the material that the ties are made of make them steadfast, so they hold well and don’t slip down your leg.

DSC00308

I completed the look with a denim jacket and my red circle bag which seems to be in high circulation, but what else can you expect when it’s from Primark haha.

DSC00303

Red has stolen my heart. It’s a great accent colour, and I’ve worn it this way often, especially when dressed in black and white. But it’s nice to make it the centre of attention sometimes.
