Hi everyone! It's been a very very long time since I last blogged and I just wanted to clear up why I haven't blogged and the reasons behind my hiatus. Since the beginning of this blog, I've always treated it as a hobby and just something I loved to do outside of school, but I found as my my school workload and deadlines were increasing, my interest in the blog was slowly fading. Instead of posting regularly with genuine content which I wanted to blog about, I decided to stop blogging as I only wanted to have posts that reflected honest thoughts. However, having recently graduated, I've had a lot more time on my hands and I've really missed blogging so I'm back for now! I thought I'd kick off my post with what I recently wore to graduation. Call me the poster child for procrastination as I leave everything to the last minute, so of course it was no surprise I only ordered my graduation dress a week before grad, resulting in frantic stress attacks that my dress wouldn't come on time for graduation.

I kept my look pretty minimal, from the minimal colour scheme of just gold and red to the minimal make up. However, I was really pleased with how I styled this look, as I found a necklace to accompany my gold clutch, which gave me very anthropologie vibes.

sneaker season

"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?
