Say hello to my inspiration for fall this year – I’m headed to Busan/Seoul in 1.5 weeks for almost a month, and with the temperatures dropping pretty quickly, I thought I’d share some images that will be inspiring my packing for the trip.
My packing list will mostly consist of blacks, whites, greys, denim and nudes; in oversized silhouettes, skinny pants, turtlenecks & oversized knits. There’s been a shift from the mini skirt to something more modest, and I’m thinking a mix between both – knitted pencil skirts, netted A-lines, and some simple, black denim tiny skirts, why not? The mood is casual yet pulled together, think essentials that you’ve loved and worn, looking effortless yet on pointe. Sounds hard, but when you’ve got a good library of images to refer to, achieving that je ne sais quoi is possible.
With the amount of walking, exploring and eating I’ll be doing, outfits are going to have to be comfortable yet chic, with the freedom to mix and match them into various outfits. My must brings are: 3 pairs of jeans, my leather joggers, black pimsolls, lots of knitted tops (both cropped and overszied), and some button down shirts. Doesn’t sound like much right now, but I’m probably headed over with a 30% filled luggage, and coming back with a 120% packed one. ;)

I must admit, I missed out on June’s must-haves, but am making up to you with these 4 babies. I call this the high-low list – 2 rather expensive items that I’d love to invest in, and 2 cheaper items that will be great additions to your wardrobe for the summer. Or in my case, additions to my wardrobe period, since there’s only summer here in Singapore all year round.
I also have to confess that I cheated a little, since I already own two of the items – but hey, shouldn’t I be sharing the good things? Also, since they’re must-haves, I should have them, no? The sandals are a huge must, comfortable and very chic (you might have seen them on my Instagram), while I await the floral romper to arrive. I’ll keep you updated, worry not. Other than that, still obsessed with everything pearl and everything leather. Why not? Point to note – leather jacket’s sleeves can be removed, turning it into a vest that’s perfect for chilly summer nights. SCORE.
Been feeling a tad uninspired to sit down and write recently – have had a lot on my mind, and been in a bit of an escapist. I’m thinking of taking the content here in another direction, maybe just up the notch by a bit. We’ll see how it goes.. I’m thinking of posting pictures from my phone that I’ve taken on a daily basis, but the quality of those might not make the cut in terms of quality. What do you guys think?
With the mess in my head right now, I thought it’d be best to let the pictures do the talking. I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of romance, which can be love itself or an expression or feeling of romance that comes out from your surroundings, as well as the idea of traveling and just being anywhere but here at the moment. (Escapist, like I said.)
