Sometimes you get cabin fever in a funny way.  For me, it strikes when studying for exams, working long hours, or being sick in bed.  Repetition and I can never seem to get friendly (perhaps you could say we are frenemies...?) 
What to do when fever hits?  A drive down the coast is always a great cure.  If symptoms persist, please consult your physician.

Every girl has one dress in her closet that she prizes above all others. Often, it is the most expensive dress which is the crème de la crème.  For others, it is a dress one can wear anywhere, anytime - shopping, to the beach, out for lunch, etc etc.

Sometimes you just want to chill out and wear sneakers, you know?

a bear in the woods

Country Road tee; ASOS maxi skirt; ASOS tassel sandals; Louis Vuitton speedy 30; Self-made necklace

My boyfriend loves his photography - he views life's surroundings through his camera lens. It is so great to see him frame the most interesting pictures in the most random or drab places (like a silly park).  
I, on the other hand, have almost zero creativity. What little creativity I do posses is channeled towards poor sewing and designing efforts.
They always say opposites attract!

Summer is here (kind of) so I've taken my annual leave from my usual monochromatic obsession and get excited about colour.

I went on a thrifting rampage a few weeks ago where I was buying bags and bags full of goodies which would be later sorted into "DEFINITELY"; "maybe"; and "what was I thinking?". Anyway I picked up these vintage mens Levis which I adore, or at least until I put them on. Doubt sets in and I always seem to pull them off and change just before I leave the house.

I bit the bullet yesterday and ran out of the house before I could chicken out. I have since realised that they are the comfiest jeans ever, and I have been missing out bigtime.

The only problem now - what to wear with them...
Ideas, anybody?
