Eat & Write

I promised more content, and here I am, delivering. I'm launching a new blog series called "Eat & Write" where I go around cafes or restaurants, try their menus and blog about them, the food, the ambience and all that. The name itself is pretty self-explanatory. This idea came to me as I invited my friend, who runs a food blog to ride around town on a mini culinary trip. We had talked about doing this for ages and now that she is back in town, I figured what better time to do this? We tried a couple of cafes yesterday, which I would do individual posts on. So, look forward to that. 

But let me just put it out there that I will still continue to blog about other things that I usually do, all those outfit posts and what not, they are still going to be here, and in no way am I establishing that I am a professional food critique. What tastes good to me, might not necessarily tastes good for you, I'm just having a little fun, that's all. I do hope this little series would be an exciting addition to the blog. I want to be able to talk about other things aside from the good old outfit of the day and such.

Do check my friend's blog out for y'all foodies out there. Drop by and say hi! or something.

Paper Planes

Sweater - Unbranded | Joggers - GU | Cheetah Printed Roshe Run - Nike | Stone necklace - Topshop

Nope, I haven't abandoned this space yet. In fact, I am now trying to be more productive. There are quite a few things I have in mind that I would like to incorporate into this blog, product reviews for instance. Let's see how well that would go. But right now, I don't even know if anyone is actually reading this blog anymore, I mean i could check the stats, but that doesn't mean anyone is reading this. But, if you are reading this and there's anything you would like me to bring on this space, feel free to let me know! I do read all the comments, you know. 

Alright, let's move on to the outfit. By now you are probably aware of my obsession with joggers. God knows I have definitely outworn all of the ones I have. However, this grey joggers have not yet made any appearance on this blog. This pair right here has a bit of a thicker material compared to the previous one I wore on this blog. Regardless, I still love wearing them for their prints. I know it isn't much of a print, it's more like the natural arrangement of the fibres of the material. Still, I love how they give a little bit of oomph to the otherwise plain old boring fabric. 

Bringing the whole colour schemes lighter, I decided to go with this embroidered lace sweater, whatever it's called. Anyway, the second I saw this sweater, I just knew I had to get it. It has the perfect balance of that feminine and sporty vibes. You could actually dress this up very easily, throw on any skirt and it would just look lovely.

Crew Love


Top - Unbranded | Ripped jeans - Forever 21 | Necklace - H&M | Sneakers - Vans | Rings - H&M 

You know how there are days where you are just too lazy to pick out something cool to wear and all you wanna do is sprawl on the couch all day. For one of those days, I usually just go straight out for the sneakers and skinny jeans slash sweatpants combo, which is the easiest and comfiest pairing ever. But again, that's what i wear 90% of the time, which can appear pretty dull, I know. Thats where the gold pieces come in, I always find the need to sneak on some dainty rings or throw on a necklace, never failing to incorporate some gold accents into the outfit to add just enough edge to dismiss the dullness. 

Oh before I go, one question, am I the only one who find it hard to come up with a seamless and smooth closing line for a post? I mean I know I could end the post with "So what do you guys think?" or something like that, but that's just plain awkward.

Weddington Way Bridesmaid Getup


When Weddington Way contacted me to take a part in their Bridesmaid styling challenge, I just knew I had to say yes. Its always been a long dream of mine plan weddings and such, creating the perfect ensemble for a once in a life time event, even though it is just a hypothetical situation in this case. The challenge is to create the ideal bridesmaid getup for a winter wedding, using one of the dresses supplied by Weddington Way. When I heard the word winter, the first thing that crossed my mind was holidays, and I associate holidays with the colour gold, which is why I picked gold as my main colour in the colour scheme, in addition to the navy blue. I wouldn't go as far as picking everything gold from head to toe, so I thought navy would be the perfect colour to pair with gold. All in all, I'm trying to keep the look as minimalistic as possible, not throwing in much jewellery, aside from the gold hair pin which I absolutely love.

Bones

Jumper - H&M | Leggings - Forever 21 | Transparent clutch - Etude House | Everly wrap boots - Jeffrey Campbell | Necklace - TOPSHOP

You gotta admit there's no better time to wear fuzzy jumpers than the holidays, and thats what I did last Christmas! I never really found the perfect time to wear this super soft jumper till then, since I find it to be quite festive and all. If you didn't know, I'm quite a hermit myself, I don't go out a lot, especially not to some fancy events. There have been many times where I could just chill in my house for the entire week without stepping a single foot out of the doorstep, but I just couldn't resist on missing out the Christmas frenzy so I decided to have a christmas dinner with some of my friends, (Even though it wasn't that Christmassy). Anyway, back to the outfit. Since the jumper itself is a statement piece, I just went for a sleek wet-looking leggings which are hands down my favourite piece of clothing, and of course my black booties. If I could pick a pair of shoes that I have worn out in 2014, it would definitely be this pair of booties! I don't know man, every time I'm deciding what to wear for the day, I would always end up building the entire outfit around them. But whats the purpose of buying them if you can't wear them for a gazillion times, right?
