I can’t believe it’s been more than 2 months since I was in London. I’m really missing Monmouth coffee and the food from Borough Market. Stumbled upon this cool wall of graffiti while roaming around and decided it’s a cool backdrop for an outfit post.
so what did the fox say?
I’m the worst when it comes to maintaining bags made of smooth leather. I managed to scratch this gorgeous bag from & Other Stories the day I brought it out.
Is anyone planning a trip soon? I’d love to hear about your travel plans!
Just found something that was buried in my drafts! I’m so in love with the XEVANA Bastille stacklace that contrasts against the simplicity of my top and the Daniel Wellington Sheffield Lady watch.

The only good thing about moving is that you discover items you don’t remember buying in the dark recesses of your closet. It’s like finding loose change in your purse only on a much larger scale. Having to move constantly also really keeps my shopping in check, I’d like to think – you never realise just how much junk you have until you have to move them all. I honestly don’t know how I have managed to accumulate so much stuff in three years. Every time I move, I feel the compulsion to give my wardrobe a huge purge…but I never get around to doing it, of course. Is anybody else’s closet just full of clothes you have forgotten about and never wear?
How has July been treating everyone? It has been a pretty exciting month for me so far, with a week long summer holiday (where I got plenty tanned) and the confirmation of my final results. I was elated to find out that I have been awarded a First Class Honours – it feels great to know that my three years of study have finally cumulated into something tangible! Graduation’s this week so hopefully I will have plenty of pictures to document the biggest moment of my life, yet. 😀
These series of pictures were taken when I was with Arissa in Paris. Her presence reminded me of the dynamics we share, and just how hard it is to actually find someone you can get along so well with… Although we have not seen each other in almost a year, it felt like we picked up right where we left off. It can be awfully hard to maintain friendships over distance, but I am so glad she stuck with me through my (frequent) periods of absence. She’s seriously as solid as a rock.
Anyway, enough about life in general! Here is a series of pictures we took in Jardin Luxembourg. The boiling hot weather now has got me wishing for cooler temperatures again!
Since I feel bad just talking about myself on here so much, tell me about the good things in your life too!
In many ways, Gothenburg’s landscape reminds me a lot of Singapore’s Keppel Bay area… A harbour’s still a harbour, regardless of where in the world it is.
A recent discussion with a friend reinforced my belief that I simply cannot tolerate living anywhere too far inland – I am by no means a beach person, but I do love being close to the sea (regardless of the fact that Singapore’s waters are so polluted that I seriously doubt its ability to sustain life). There’s just something invigorating about the salt air; it’s the perfect mixture of rotting seaweed, seagull excrement, and fresh air. It sounds no way palatable, but I am sure most island/coast dwellers can agree with me that it just brings you to the earliest memories of happiness.
I have been on the lookout for a classic biker jacket recently, and this Zara one just fitted the bill perfectly. It was even reasonably priced! The problem with me is that if I latch on to a style, I end up buying about 10 variations of the same item – a look through my closet would confirm my love for draped jackets and bodycon skirts, amongst other things. Now that the weather’s so bring and warm, I’m at a complete loss at how to work my autumn/winter heavy closet; this has spurred me on a journey to find said biker jacket (done!) and summer dresses (still needs beefing up in this department).
At least I have the shoes department covered with these spanking new Jeffrey Campbell Soirees! I know I’m about a year late to the trend, but it takes a long time for me to warm up to an item, especially a trendy item. I spend months mulling over a purchase, and when I finally decide to go for it, the fad would have passed. Ah well – at least I know that I really like them!
Help me build my summer closet! What are your summer must-haves this year? x
