MUSTARD TROUSERS




Hello!
A BIG step out of my comfort zone with these trousers. This is another one of my buys from a boutique, during my recent trip to Thailand. I'm loving the wide leg, fluid type trousers that give off a comfortable, effortless look. From your culottes to palazzos, they are trending right now and I have to say, I was hesitant on buying them at first, just because I felt I needed to be Karlie Kloss’s height in order to pull it off. Mind you, I am a shorty, so when I tried it on, it surprisingly skimmed down my legs quite nicely.  

The mustard colour, reminded me of the 70’s, Jackson 5 era (cue the song blame it on the boogie).
It’s very fitting to wear a bold colour in a beautiful, colourful surrounding of Phuket.
I thought to style it with a black crop top and simple flat sandals for a casual look. Although, these trousers will go amazingly with some heels for a dressed up look. 
This pop of colour has me feeling summer ready!

Are you a fan of the wide leg trend? 
What will you be buying for summer?

PINK CO-ORD




Hello my loves! I thought I share with you this candy pink co-ordinate I purchased during my recent travel to Thailand.

From where you ask?

Well, I’m sure if you lived in Bangkok or visited, you would’ve heard of the infamous Platinum Fashion Mall. Think, shopping heaven! Located in Pratu Nam, it is one of the largest fashion wholesalers in Bangkok. Everything you can think of goes down in this mall, from clothes, boutiques, accessories, shoes, luggage, furniture, the list goes on…

Now let me just say, I’ve never been so overwhelmed in my LIFE! Aisles, after aisles, floor after floor. Every nook and cranny in this place is filled with ‘spending’. You can seriously get your retail fix here, (or maybe a therapist to tame your shopping addiction by the end of it).

Okay, back to my outfit. I fell in love with this two piece because firstly, I don’t have anything like this. Oh the colour, I had to go for the stand out rose pink.

 I feel you can wear this on any occasion. You can spruce it up in the office, added with a mod blazer, it exudes confidence. You can give off some stylish vibes to an upcoming summer wedding. Wear this ensemble to lunch with the girls or for that special date. It really is an all rounder, a wardrobe staple and I do love a good co-ord, especially for days when I can’t be fussed on trying to style one particular item!

Are you a fan of co-ords? 
Let me know what you think!
