Under Control


Hey everyone! Here's to another quick post because I've missed writing about random thoughts, and really, I just wanted to ensure that the blog is updated to have some consistency.

Moreover, long, overdue updates tend to mean that I get to express myself sincerely, as opposed to the usual struggles of thinking about what I should write to accompany the imageries I have just uploaded. (Or is writing nothing sometimes accepted? Thoughts?)

To roughly brief you on this outfit's journey some time last month, I spent my Saturday night trying Ginza's 'Wagyu Shabu Shabu' (Japanese- styled hot pot) for dinner with the loveliest of friends. (Again, thank you Johnny and Iris for making this happen).

If you're sitting here pondering as to how my dinner went, stay tuned for a food review on my personal experience within the next few days. And hey, I'd say it's good timing that the food review falls within the colder months, seeing as it is now autumn. Eating hotpot is always more desirable when you're layering on the woollen clothes, and granny knits.

In regards to these jeans, I am in lust for another similar shade as Acne can do no wrong. The fit and cut is to perfection, and when paired with a subtle, backless cami, and some minimalistic, black heels, I'd say that this is your go- to dinner date ensemble. But yikes, I was not aware that I had such a visible tan line on my back...

And if you're still reading, which I must firstly congratulate you for, and that you have came to read this post from being directed on my face book page in regards to some 'announcement', I will have to apologise for making the lamest April Fools joke, as there is no serious announcement to be made (besides, the fact that I've updated the blog :P) Happy April Fools anyway!

Daily Grind

Simple, grey ensemble for a casual day of running errands. I chose to dress down the tight- fitting skirt as I am certain that the majority of people on here would know how to style such a piece for a dinner, or a night out in town (amirite?) Even though in essence, if you substitute the sneakers for heels, this could be your ideal outfit for an evening.

This is just a short post as my way of saying hello to everyone who is currently reading this blog. And yes, in case you're wondering, I have been a little more busy since uni has started... Apologies!

P.s. How beautiful is the henna on my hand?

Crisp


I thought this was the perfect outfit to welcome the Autumn/ Fall season here on the blog. Alas, those three, awesome Summer months have finally reached its ending and eventually, I won't be seeing many bare legs out in public. 

I always tend to think quite ahead, not just in terms of fashion or my personal style, but everything. However staying on topic, I knew I had to occasionally scout for new, staple pieces to add to my seasonal wardrobe throughout the Summer. I fell head over heals over these cropped, tapered trousers. There are so many options of outerwear and tops that could look great with these effortlessly- chic looking pants: jumpers, sweaters, crop tops - you name it. If you're after something that would complement your minimal, and relaxed style, this is the answer. 

I am actually trying to find a flattering black pair to have more pant options once Winter hits. (Can't be seen wearing jeans everyday now can I)? Even so, I wouldn't be surprised if you catch me mid- Winter wearing a short skirt or a pair of shorts. I've never really listened to what the weatherman had to say anyway...

Whilst shooting these photos, I have came to the conclusion that sunglasses are a blogger's best friend. Trying to take photos on a busy schedule can be quite difficult, especially if you're out for the entire day and do not have the time to reapply your make up. The process of make up reapplication is quite pivotal since the digital camera is able to capture extremely clear images, and therefore highlight unwanted flaws, if there is any. For example, imagine having that random pimple pop up one morning on the day of a shoot. And for your information, that scenario happens very frequently for me... Another occasion where sunglasses are helpful is if you're actually tired and it is physically evident through the photos. For such case, it'll be something along the lines of having minimal sleep the previous night. Thus, putting on a good pair of sunglasses will prevent and solve all these minor problems, whilst still act as a great accessory to any outfit. What an excellent inventory - and yes, I am wholly aware that there are numerous other, positive reasons as to why sunglasses could be your next best friend.

On a personal note, this week marks the first week back at Uni and I'm actually enjoying it. One of the perks of starting school again is buying new stationery. Yep, forever a student at heart. Annual trips to Officeworks will always be a fond primary/ high school memory. In saying so, the amount of stationary bought each year does reduce significantly. I still remember how I stopped using a pencil case last year because at some point, someone stole mine - tragic by the way. I resulted in just putting the pens and highlighters into the bottom of my bag, and trying to find whatever one I could when I needed to write something. However it's alright, I am more organised this year (inb4 someone steals it again).

I feel that this year will be an interesting one (in a positive way of course). I can't wait to see what will actually unfold, and what opportunities will arise before me. Regardless, I'll definitely be putting 110% into all my assessments, even if that means I will be at uni past midnight on a regular basis again.

Thanks for reading,
