BERRY SUMMER


I have always wanted to incorporate a bright pair of statement shoes into my everyday wear without looking too contrived. These Josie flatforms from Rubi  effortlessly does the job thanks to their rich, berry colour and understated flatform sole. You may have seen them here on the blog in a flesh colour, but I could not pass on getting a second pair which has far become a great accent to any summer ensemble. This white, sleeveless blouse from Pinkstitch has also been on high rotation along with my super large tribal bag I picked up from Thailand almost a year ago. Seriously, I regard it as my Mary Poppin's bag since you can fit almost anything in it! hehe

I apologise for the pause in posts, things have been quite hectic lately, honestly any spare time I have I've been going out and or treating myself to some quality downtime. My mentality has always been work hard and play harder, where for the most of times... I believe it's only your own smile that counts at the end of the day. Last weekend I was lucky to visit the Breakfast Point Country Club (where these photos were taken) and got to enjoy the gorgeous weather and some R&R; the pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sunbathing of course. Sometimes you just gotta drop everything and enjoy life. Either you "live to work or work to live".... I choose the latter.

Wearing: collar sleeveless blouse by Pinkstich, Josie flatforms by Rubi, skirt by Cotton On,
tribal bag from Thailand, cat-eyes by Forever New and mixed accessories.
