Black trench

Hi all,

It’s been quite a stressful week at work so time for some retail shopping. Tried on these blazers and outerwears and I didn’t actually expect to pick up anything but maybe because I was stressed it triggered my buy buy buy mood ๐Ÿ™‚

Striped blazer. I think it’s a little too out there for me to wear to work.

The blazer was too long for my liking – returned

Creamy trench – looks nice in the photos but it was actually quite top heavy – returned

Had to add a favourite place I tried – “I Love Pho” is the restaurant and their pho is awesome. Pho is beef noodle soup!

Happy weekend everyone!

Have you bought something onย a whim because you were stressed?

Stripes, spots and florals

Who would have thought that these 3 different patterns would make a complete outfit. This is what I wore today. I think the trick is to have the colors similar in each pattern – for eg I chose black and white. You should choose one pattern to be “louder” than the others while the other 2 should complement the bolder pattern.
I chose this striped cardigan which is black and gray where the stripes are quite faint. I also chose this spotty skirt where the white dots are also quite faint and then I chose this floral top that is much bolder in pattern.

Today has been the hottest it has been for a long time – just a taste of Summer! 29 degrees!
