Fashion, Inspiration, Outfits, Personal, Style


It’s a very strange feeling, coming back home after half a year of living abroad. The past 6 months feel like a dream, and I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that it all really did happen. You come home and nothing seems to have changed but you feel… different. I find it most perplexing that I open up my wardrobe now and I find that I can’t seem to identify with half of the clothes that I have in there. I have been exposed to so many different styles and influences that my own personal style has changed over the past half a year I’ve been away. It has become a new challenge for me to find ways to merge this… newfound sense of style with the one I possessed pre-exchange. Style boards on Pinterest have made this task a lot easier for me – I’m not an avid user of the platform but I do foresee myself coming back to these boards time and time again. Here are a few street style inspirations I have found that correspond very closely to what I *hope* this merging of pre- and post- styles will amount to! Now, to recreate wearable versions of these for Singapore’s heat…

    Great inspiration pieces! A friend of mind recently returned from doing a lot of traveling and she said she had the same change in relationship to her clothes and personal style. Hopefully I’ll be lucky enough to experience the same one day.
    Love the blog!

      Thank you! Yeah, it’s a really strange phenomenon… I’m sure you’ll get to experience it soon! Plus, it’s also a good excuse to go shopping, hahaha 😉 Thanks for visiting Rouge & Ruche!
