sneaker season

links| 1, 2, 3, 4 |
"You can never have too many pair of shoes". Carrie Bradshaw first preached it, and I couldn't agree more. Long gone are the days of suffering in uncomfortable shoes, and in are the long lasting trend of comfort and practicality. When styling casual wear, my staple item is definitely sneakers. I basically only wear sneakers and style them with a myriad of outfits, from short skirts, jeans to shorts. They're both comfortable and stylish, and are the perfect shoe wear for a day of walking. They're especially useful to wear on holiday when you're exploring a new place. Trust me, after walking on the streets of London with sandals for 12 hours, you can take my word that sneakers will save your life.

Apart from the Stan Smith's which almost every girl I know, including myself, seems to own, my current favourites are linked above.

A very impromptu shoot, these photos were just taken right by my neighbourhood park on a lazy Saturday afternoon. I decided to keep to a very minimalistic look and stuck with black and white tones when choosing which outfit to wear for this shoot. I love this outfit because it's perfect to battle Singapore's humidity, with a touch of practicality infused with style.

A majority of the brands I'm wearing in this outfit are from Nike, which I've been wearing a lot of lately as I've been loving a more sporty look. This relates to Nikes by Frank Ocean, a song I have been religiously listening to since Frank Ocean's new album came out.

Kapten & Son was kind enough to send me one of their beautiful watches to try, so I picked the "Brown Croco Leather" strap, which suits as a versatile and stylish accessory. Prior to trying the watch on, I was worried the watch would be too big but it fits perfectly and has a snug fit. Trying on the watch, I couldn't be happier with my pick. They look so nice on the hand, in addition to being pretty light. I would honestly recommend going on their website if you are looking for a watch as they come with a myriad of styles and swatches to choose from. 

What do you think of this outfit?

fall/winter favourites

Although  I cannot experience winter or fall in the tropics of Singapore, I like to think I can vicariously live through these seasons through Tumblr and Pinterest.

Some essentials for the fall/winter
1. Bomber Jacket: Over the summer, I noticed bomber jackets dominating street style, sporting a range of different prints. Transitioning to autumn/winter, bomber jackets would look great with just about anything. Not only are they stylish, they are most importantly practical as well.

2. Velvet Boots: I've been loving velvet boots and dream of the day when I can live in a country cold enough to be able to sport these shoes.

3. Turtlenecks: Turtlenecks are a staple item for fall and winter. They've been a long-time favourite of mine and you can wear them with practically anything. Personally, I like going to Zara to buy mine but you can find them anywhere.

4. Beauty essentials: I cannot express how lifesaving Lipbalm and Moisturizer are for winter. Coming from Singapore to a cold country, I have often found it difficult to adjust to the cold, and my face dries out pretty quickly. Having a moisturizer brings back the life to your face and it is honestly so useful. My favourites are the "Burt's Bees" chapsticks, the "Kiehl's" eye cream and the Clinique moisturizer.
