Let's Talk About This Tank Top











Grey Tank Top: Carrislabelle
Outer Shirt: Stradivarius
Skirt: Stradivarius
Boots: Polo Ralph Lauren
Hat: The Editors Market
Bag: Sandy Trove

I absolutely love today's outfit. We start from the hat of my dreams, to a tank-top with the most desirable and talk-about-worthy strap details, the perfect slouchy outer boyfriend shirt, a casual denim pencil skirt (see my newfound obsession for pencil skirts in the post below), and to end it all, my favourite pair of boots which you guys must have seen me wearing to death

I had such a hard time pairing today's featured grey tank top, because there are just SO MANY ways to pair it, should I pair it with jeans, a pair shorts, a skirt, or overalls? I'm pretty you'll have fun styling the top as well, plus, who doesn't love a top with such classy and chic thin straps?

Silhouette








Top: All Would Envy
Skirt: Dressabelle
Bag: Kate Spade
Increasingly I find myself developing a love for pencil skirts. I had my inhibitions with body hugging silhouettes (i.e. body-con dresses and pencil skirts) because I was a little shy when it came to wearing them. But I couldn't resist trying on this Dressabelle floral pencil skirt when I saw it, and not only did I come to embrace the ahem "hip-hugging" fit, but I loved the silky and comfortable material of the skirt! If only I had Kim Kardashian's body - which has been the talk of the town recently - then I'd wear clothing body hugging silhouettes all day.

Today's post was shot in the wee hours of the morning at the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Did you know, Game of Thrones was shot here? And I kid you not, when Amanda and I stayed at an Airbnb apartment in Dubrovnik, our host was the assistant director of, you guessed it, Game of Thrones, and we were so blessed and thankful for having him as our host as he gave all the "good spots" to shoot in in the old town.

Garden Prints Out at Sea









Dress: Dressabelle
Bag: Kate Spade
Shoes: Charles & Keith

Thank you to all you lovely girls (and some really sweet boyfriends) for participating in my $300 Benefit Cosmetics Hamper giveaway! While I love giveaways, it can also be really frustrating. It is never easy to pick winners because - you must hear me say this a lot - I know a lot of you put in effort to write your entries, and to know I'm not able to give the hamper to every one of you really puts me in an exasperating situation. But alas, I can only pick three winners, and after carefully reading all the entries, I've chosen:

Natasha Anwar, natashaanwar96@hotmail.com
Jesslyn, gio_jesslyn@hotmail.com
Jia Lyn Low, ellejayelle@hotmail.com

Congratulations Natasha, Jesslyn and Jia Lyn! I'll be in contact with you guys shortly (: Thank you to everyone else for participating in the giveaway, there will be more giveaways to come so do stay tuned to my blog and instagram!

On to today's blog post: Today's outfit was shot in Dubrovnik, Croatia, a trip I went with Amanda for Dressabelle. I'd describe Dubrovnik as a town for lovers of the sea: there are so many islands you can visit from Dubrovnik via a chartered ferry, yacht or boat. And almost every Croatian living in Dubrovnik spends their weekend out at the rock beaches or out at sea. The weather was perfect in August, not too hot nor too cold, perfect for floral midi dresses like the Dressabelle one I'm wearing.
