Time flies! One second, we are celebrating the beginning of a new year; and the next, it is already the end of March! For those who are in Australia, can you believe autumn is already here? I always find this transitional period very difficult to figure out. Tank tops? Too cold. Jackets? Too hot. Ahead is how I fight this tricky season with items I have curated over the past couple months.
Getting dressed up in newbies is fun. But on a lazy day, the last thing on my mind is curating some next-level outfit. This is the time I turn to my monotone items in the closet.
As life is quite busy these days, I rely heavily on pieces that can take me from desk to cocktails to shorten my morning routine. A couple days ago, I needed to see a client for a quick coffee meeting in the afternoon and attended a cocktail party for work afterwards. Knowing that I would be surrounded by a lot of people from the fashion industry in the party, I wanted to wear something that would make me feel chic yet powerful.
Just a quick mid-week update – the other day I was in Sydney CBD with Mr. D, and it suddenly struck us how we have always overlooked these interesting back alleys in the city. Somehow these blue murals in Chinatown made a very good match with what I was wearing!
I always love a good mix of old and new items. A close friend of mine was in town a week ago, and we girls had a crazy yet lovely shopping spree. When I was trying the newbies at home, I realised how my newly acquired top and shorts form a cute retro summery combo. So I went with the flow, and threw in other items to build a 60s vibe outfit! 😉
