I’ve recently decided to start this blog to keep track of my personal outfits, because I honestly sometimes don’t remember what’s nice together, or what I wore the day before. Also because I take so many photos per outfit but only post like 1 on Instagram??? (trying to justify my pretentious-ness) So this is to document my own fashion journey in a sense! To see how my styles have changed since I started, and the like. I’ll try and link directly to each item if possible, if not I’ll just try and link the website!
Just last week I flew back home for Chinese New Year, and had this whole last minute scramble for outfits, but I managed to put together a few for the first three days!!
(Day 1 outfit)
Chinese New Year is all about traditional colours, but I’m not really into reds or anything along those lines, so I decided to incorporate a little blue into my outfit. I got both my white crop top and my blue and white oriental flower printed midi skirt from boohoo. I was looking rather pasty because of the lack of sun in the UK, so all the white really helped to balance that out and give me a bit more colour. The print on the midi skirt kept things a bit more interesting (and was also extremely me because oriental prints + cobalt = Y E S)
For accessories I wore my Tiffany’s necklace, which I layered an amethyst cross over. I carried my 3.1 Phillip Lim pashli in cobalt, which I got for my birthday recently and I was really excited about!!! (once again, cobalt. I obviously have a thing for blue.) I really like how the colour of my bag matched the colour of my skirt and really made the details of both pop!
For shoes, I got these gorgeous brown (wood) platforms from Charles and Keith. I don’t really wear or own any brown shoes but when I saw the gold details on this pair I was completely sold!! The sturdy platform also meant I managed to look lots taller without risking falling on my butt.

I have to admit that I bought the outfits for day 2 and 3 at one go because I had NO TIME I just walked into MDS and tried on a whole bunch of stuff until I found what I liked.
I got this jumpsuit because I absolutely LOVE grid prints. The culottes bottoms were also super cute and didn’t hug my thighs too tightly. This jumpsuit was perfect because the fitting top emphasized my smaller upper half and the flowy bottoms hid my lower half and gave the illusion that I’m really slim.
To continue the whole black and white thing I had going, I wore my Jeffrey Campbells, which I got for Christmas and I am still really excited about! The metal panel and the pointed toes gave the outfit a slightly edgier feel and the heels were not only cut out in a super cool design but also helped to elongate my figure slightly and make me seem taller.

For my last outfit I paired this gorgeous off shoulder white top with a colourful pair of skorts. The off-shoulder look was a super cute way to show a bit of skin in a tasteful way, and also was really cooling under the scorching Malaysian sun. I really liked the skorts because the thick black band at the waist accentuated my waist!
This was by far my favourite outfit as it was the most comfortable and could be dressed up or down depending on the event! I actually wore a pair of silver slip ons with them, but didn’t get a good picture with them on and can’t get a non-awkward photo of them (will post a pic of them eventually!)
Okay I think I am done being painfully awkward and feeling pretentious. Thanks for reading guys! Really excited to keep up with this so look out for more coming soon!!!
