Basic on Basic

Brunching is definitely one of my favourite things to do. You get to dress nicely to eat pretty food at a gorgeous settings, what's not to love?

The latest brunch I had, which quickly became one of my favourite places, is The Stables of Como. I have been wanting to check this place out for ages. And fortunately, it did not dissapoint. The atmosphere, location, decor and food were all absolutely amazing. If there is a long line for the tables, then just grab a takeaway coffee and have a stroll in the garden. As you step into their cafe, you will see a long table full of baked goods which reminds me of Alice in Wonderland’s tea party. I would definitely recommend the coffee and cauliflower risotto. 

This is what I wore to brunch. I recently bought both the top and pleather skirt, which kind of looks like a bad-ass tennis skirt, from H&M. This skirt is so easy to style, it basically goes with any top: sweater, cami or even a basic tee. 
I don’t exactly know what the colour of the sweater is called, but I am so obsessed with it. I first fell in love with it when I saw Essie’s Bikini So Teeny, then my love grew, and it will continue to grow.
Since the top is quite plain, I decided to add a few necklaces. I have been obsessing over gemstones for their natural beauty. They are quite simple yet can spice up a basic sweater. They shine and shimmer under the light, it's just hard not to love them. Necklaces are available from Day and Night Tictail shop.

Tres Jolie

13.7.14


wearing: H&M top, skirt and necklace | shoes from Taiwan | THE EDITOR'S MARKET backpack
Not that I understand French, but "Tres Jolie" means "very nice". Yes, I used google translate. Somehow the French managed to turn two simple words to sound beautiful and elegant. I did not know what it meant when I first saw this top at H&M during my Hong Kong trip, but somehow I was attracted to it. Most likely because of the monochrome colours. So I continued the monochrome theme by pairing it with a black pleather asymmetrical skirt from the same store, but also added a pop of colour on the shoes.
I have been loving anything asymmetrical, skirts, dresses and tops. I found this simple but gorgeous asymmetrical t-shirt from Zalora, any thoughts? To buy or not to buy?

Can't See the Forest for the Trees

1.7.14

wearing: THE EDITOR'S MARKET top & skirt | MISS SHOP hat | STACCATO boots

In most cases, people would tend to choose darker hues for the winter and i guess that is why I have been loving this dark forest green colour. To me, it embodies a sense of maturity, elegance and sophistication. And since i like to have a bit of contrast and mix something different in my outfit, I decided to pair it with a playful pleated pleather skirt. The cold has also made me impulsively wear wide-brimmed felt hats. It just gives the extra edge my outfit needed.

off to work now!
