The Lion City, or Singapura is a Malay word where the English name Singapore is derived from. That’s obviously where I got my blog’s title from, also because I wore this ensemble on our 2nd day tour at SG. 🙂
Prior to my trip, I planned to pack light, in order to not burden myself with loads of stuff I had to hand carry and piggy back. By packing light, I mean not bringing any pair of jeans or any heavy clothing piece. Instead, I brought cotton dresses and skirts, since I wanted to be comfy and look fashionable at the same time.
I guess this batwing dress is perfect for Singapore’s weather. Plus, it’s so me because it’s loose! As someone with a typical everyday life, I know I have to stock up on staple pieces, than statement ones. First, because everyday seems so ordinary, and I wouldn’t find a statement dress (say, something full of sequins) fit to be worn on a normal day. Second, because when I dress up, I want to look noticeable, but in a subtle way. Not too screaming-OA, not too underdressed. What I do, whenever I’m enrobed with simple clothes is carry on a statement accessory of stack colors in my clothing or accessories as well. That’s my cheat sheet! What’s yours? 😉
That day, since my dress looks like a plain Jane, I brought along my blazer with me and furnished the simple look with flashy colors like neon green and orange. To top it off, the hat-lover in me had to take the scene, so say hello to my overused floppy hat.
If you know me too well, you know that I love to mix sophisticated pieces with funky/colorful ones. I don’t really know what that’s called, but I guess my style is an experiment. My mood sets everything!
While being toured around, I had a peg outfit shot scene. It has always been my fantasy to be taken photos while walking in a clean street/pedestrian, with luxurious brand stores within the frame, confidently carrying paperbags. Very Sex and the City or Gossip Girl! So, I took this chance to at least channel Carrie Bradshaw. Am I ambitious enough? Haha!
Thank you to Melai for taking my outfit shots! Fashion bloggers really know how to take each other’s outfit photos without any necessary direction from the other.
