Outfit Post – A Slice of Lemon

I was never really a huge fan of the lemon. I found it too “loud”. However, I have found myself loving the shade in last few years. There is something I now like about the lemon colour.

I wore this outfit while holidaying in Maryland. The lemon top is a new wardrobe addition. I got it some weeks ago, and worn it a few times already. That is how much I love it. It is super easy to style and very easy to wear. The black leggings is also a new wardrobe addition. I am forever buying new leggings. My leggings only look good for a few months, and then they start to look worn out. Maybe because I am forever wearing them. I find leggings super comfy, and easy to style. I don’t have to over think an outfit too much, once I have a pair of leggings to save the day. I have been told to go for more expensive leggings as they last longer than the regular high street pairs. What do you think?

Everything else I am wearing is an oldie but a goldie. I spent the day in the shopping mall browsing bargains and looking for amazing items to take home with me. When it comes to shopping, I prefer shopping in Europe than in the US. Maybe it is because it was my first trip to the US in 7 years. I was expecting to find amazing things I would like. But that as not the case at all. It took me forever to find things I really likes. In the end, I got fab items from Macy’s, Carters, The Children’s Place and a few other stores.

OOTD: My Love for Backpacks

Since becoming a mother, my fashion life has taken a back seat as expected. I am unable to wear sky-high shoes when out and about with the twins. I only started going out with my handbags. In the early days, I used to share the baby bag with them. I couldn’t see the point in taking 2/3 bags out at the same time.

During those days, I began to appreciate backpacks and shoulder bags. The fact that I could pop everything I needed in a backpack and still have my hands free to push the buggy or grab a child felt amazing. These days, you can easily spot me with a backpack. I find them very comfy and handy to have around. So when the opportunity to feature a Zatchel bag landed on my doorstep, I knew the style I was going for instantly.

I went for the Belgrave Cream Backpack. I really like the design and colour. This beauty is handmade in England from the finest quality soft leather. I adore the quick open clasp concealed behind the buckle and two front pockets with magnetic closures. I think it is a cute and stylish backpack.

The green top is also a new wardrobe  addition. I got it in the sale some weeks ago. It has been worn a few times now because I find it dead comfy and easy to layer with a blazer.

I am still in the process of sorting out my autumn/winter wardrobe. I am hoping to finish up this week. So look out for loads of autumn/winter outfit posts. I have a few lined up already.

OOTD: One Spring Day

I am loving the cool spring weather at the moment. The weather is no longer painfully cold, so my bare legs are out for as long as possible. How are you enjoying spring? Has spring sprung where you are at?

 

 

I love wearing dresses in the spring/summer months, I guess that is due to the fact that I have been stuck in heavy coats, jeans and tights all through winter. I find dresses comfortable and easy to style.

Take this black dress I have on for example; all I had to do was to throw on a few accessories and I was good to go. That is the beauty of a little black dress, it never goes out of style, and it is dead easy to dress up.

 

 

This black embroidery smock dress is a new wardrobe addition; I got it some few weeks ago. I love the floral embroidery detail a lot. It is a perfect piece, and it is great for transitioning from winter to spring (just pop on a blazer and a pair of tights if you need one), and from day-to-night (with a change of accessories).

 

 

“I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit.” -Michael Kors.

I saw this quote online some days ago and it hit the nail on the head, with regards to the major role accessories play in an overall look. I think accessories are very important; they determine how good or bad an outfit would turn out, so I like to pay my accessories special attention, even more than my pieces.
