Pink Turtleneck

When I was packing for my weekend away,
I thought it would be a good idea to take along my pink
Merona turtleneck sweater.

Black trousers H&M - Pink turtleneck sweater Merona - Black flats Jessica Simpson
I imagined pairing it with some black cropped trousers and that would somehow
give me an Audrey Hepburn feel and look.


The feel and look were quite the opposite and could only confirm I 
am letting the sweater go.

You just have to admit when some garments do not fit you well.

Taking a hike

If you have been around for a while, you should know by now that I am not the sporty type.

Gap jeans - Stradivarius chambray shirt - Save the Twinkie tshirt - H&M sneakers
Something I am not proud of but admit to.


So, it was quite the challenge when I had the opportunity to do a 
hike in the rainforest to find the "three waterfalls".


First of all I was not dressed for the activity, but I had not packed
with hiking in mind.


So I showed up to the trail in jeans and a backpack
with healthy foods and plenty of water.. 


Oh, and a raincoat that came in really handy!


It was a 3 hour walk, in a signalised muddy trail - a lot of it was uphill.


For a moment I thought I was going to pass out - due to the lack
of oxygen, which only confirmed how truly out shape I am.


At the end of the hike, I fell on my ass :)

Long drive

We had to take six hour drive and for anyone
who has been that long on a car, its important to 
be wearing comfortable clothing.

Antillia Femme - Folies sandals 
So I chose to wear this dress and now that I look at it, 
it seems a little pyjama-sey.


I am actually thinking it should go in the pyjama drawer...

Third white blazer

I have a "thing" for white garments.
 I own white shorts, white jeans and white trousers too.
However my "specialty" are white tops.
I literally have over 3 dozen.

Black trousers H&M - Scarf print top Zara -
White blazer with black pipping Suzie - Black shoes Zara 
Even though they are so hard to maintain,
I fell to the temptation of adding yet another white blazer 
to my collection, with the excuse of this one being "different" 
because of the black pipping.


So, yes this is now my third white blazer.

Chinese girl at church

I attended a mass recently and 
seated in front of me was this pretty Chinese girl.

Black trousers H&M - Chambray shirt Stradivarius - Brown flats Franco Sarto
She was wearing black bottoms and chambray shirt
with brown flats and a messy bun.
She looked fabulously chic in a simple assemble.



So, I came home and tried to replicate it.
Let's just say that, it was way better on her.

On a ladder

It's quite difficult for me to find a lonesome location for taking pictures 
 within my apartment building in the mornings.

White tshirt Talbots - Brown printed skirt New York & Co. - Brown shoes Baci 
 The location must have good natural lighting and somewhere
to place my camera as I do not have a tripod.


Today this was the only "open" location for me to use:
on a ladder.

Michael's jacket

For some reason I always associate
military like jacket with Michael Jackson.

Culture black military jacket - Black trousers H&M - 
White tshirt Talbots - Black suede shoes Moleca

I realised that this jacket one has been around since 2009.
Worn only about 6 times in five years, I am beginning to
think that its time to let go.


Do you own a military like jacket ?
How do you style it without it being too costumey?
