Rainy Summer

It has been raining non-stop for four days and nights in Shanghai, and it’s supposed to be summer!!! arrgg Keeping hair smooth is becoming a total nightmare!

Keeping it simple – denim shirt, stripy mini & booties

Oh and I need a tan! I feel a trip to Thailand coming on ūüôā

 

1969 Was a Good Year

Well, it was for me as my husband was born in 1969. It’s like when you see your name on a coffee cup or pen, you can’t resist buying it. 1969 T – Gap. Cute shorts also¬†Gap

Loafers – Anne Klein (old) Bracelet – Kate Spade. Bag – Charles & Keith

Denim & Lace

I love mixing textures, like unexpected flavours. Today we have lace and denim. Hooray.

It’s a little less obvious, don’t you think? And yes, I haven’t managed to put my new Kate Spade bag down!

Blue suede loafers – similar

Cropped Pink Pants

How utterly cute are these cropped trousers? Great for a casual shopping day or weekend brunch

Trousers РGap  available in Tall & Petite

I only liked the pale pink but they come in a wide range of other colours such as green, navy blue and red.

I like that the roll-up is fairly narrow because I have ridiculously thin and spindly ankles which I don’t like to highlight. I also wear slim-fit flats to avoid the ‘Olive Oil’ from Pop-Eye look.

Casual Thursday

I decided to do a double-casual post because being comfortable and looking chic is not easy! When wearing jeans to work, I strongly believe in adding heels or posh flats, a cute bag, funky ring/earrings. Otherwise one can look like a slob.

I also believe in spending a bit more time on your hair and make-up to ‘make up’ for being so casual. Jeans – Zara 1969 Flare (old). Grey top – Gap (old). Polka dot flats – Trenery. Bag – Charles & Keith.

My second casual look for the week. And this really is me walking – my husband uses a fast shutter-speed to capture each movement in the hopes one of 20 shots will be use-able! But I love the ‘moving’ shots as it feels less posed.

Adorable polka dot top – Jaspal. Jeans – GStarRaw. Heels – Nine West Caress

Ballet Flats

I am always on the scout for cute ballet flats. These classic black ones were a gift and SO well-received¬†because, for some reason, brands always add ‘stuff’ like bows, studs & buckles. And I couldn’t resist these amazing polka dot ones.

Pop of Pink

This is Cape Town waterfront. Don’t you just love the yachting back-drop! I was celebrating my birthday at The Radisson Blu with my girlfriends. It was casual and chic, of course!

White T – Gap linen. Jeans – GStar Raw. Pink flats – Nine West. Pink Pashminia – old. Nails – OPI

 

 

And I just had to add this one – got to love a gorgeous hotel room balcony over-looking the ocean with fresh coffee and a fluffy gown. I live for these moments.
