Black & Denim Basics

There is nothing quite like a classic black tank, pair of jeans and hoop earrings. These pics were taken on separate days (you can tell from my different colour nail varnish!!) one with a very old pair of Mankind stone-wash jeans (8 years’ old!!) and one with dark flared.

Stonewash –  Mankind (old! similar). Dark flared denim – Zara . Black tank – H&M. Hoops – old (similar) Animal print clutch – similar. Black bag with gold studs – Jaspal (old collection)

I actually bought this H&M Tank in two different sizes because certain outfits look better with a very tight look (a high-waist skirt) and a looser fit for tucking into denim hot pants / jeans (to avoid a muffin top!)

A Wedding

My third Thai wedding and always a wonderful excuse to wear a new outfit! This gorgeous dress was initially bought for our 4 year anniversary dinner, but we ended up in Tokyo and it never happened as planned. So I am finally debuting it now!

Dress – Jaspal. Heels – Charles and Keith. Clutch – Accessorize sale. Lavender nails – Revlon. Diamond earrings and tennis bracelet – husband

Denim and Print

One of my favourite wardrobe tricks is to add a well-worn denim jacket over a posh or formal dress. It tones the look down and at the same time, funks it up.

Denim jacket – Levis Classic Trucker (old, similar). Dress – Expressions (similar in polka dots). Dusty pink pumps – Nine West Caress. Clutch – local market (similar) Diamond tennis bracelet – generous husband (nothing similar!) Nails – Revlon Shade – Cherries in the Snow

 

 

 

BB Cream & Marc Jacobs Macaroons

I spend almost 5 hours in the make-up section over the weekend. I am a fan of the natural look, so I ended up at the Bobbi Brown counter and walked out with a small bag packed with new products and a steaming credit card.

Highlights:  Bobbi Browns BB cream with SPF35++ & SPF50 Face Base. Hydrating Face tonic. Thick eye cream (night application only) The shimmer brick – there are no words for how this single product transformed my life and two bottles of bright orange nail varnish from Revlon.

Had to add in my delightful free gift from Marc Jacobs on Mothers’ Day (in Thailand it falls on the Queens’ Birthday) Three beautiful macaroons!

A Classic Gap Jersey

I am totally into jersey knits with three-quarter sleeves. I was inspired by one of my favourite bloggers Native Fox who always manages to look chic. I think the combination of covered-up on top with lots of leg, is what really works. If the top is sexy, then I would wear jeans or knee-length skirt. A little bit of mystery goes a long way, don’t you think?

Grey soft jersey – Gap. Black mini skirt – Zara. Tangerine Heels – Zara (old). Zebra bracelet & Pink Bag – Kate Spade. Gold diamante cocktail ring – similar. Tangerine nail varnish – Revlon new collection. Make up – Bobbi Brown
