My love for oversized garments stem from my everyday battle against the heat back in Singapore. I am in love with the fabric used for this dark blue button-down and it is extremely lightweight, therefore perfect for layering in this hot and humid weather. I have been sporting the red-and-blue combo quite frequently as of late – 3 times the past week, the last I counted – and no, it didn’t have anything to do with the 4th of July weekend about two weeks back (though I did, coincidentally, wear red, white and blue on that particular Saturday). When I’m not out in sandals, I take my trusty 4-year-old Converse sneakers out instead and they add a touch of cool to any outfit I choose for the day. If you’ve been observant over the past few months, you would have noticed that I have been paying more attention to the bags that I carry together with my outfit… this beauty here was a find from the leather market in Florence, borrowed from my sister.

Fun fact: The white maxi tank dress I’m wearing was actually worn the other way round, so that I didn’t have to deal with a low neckline in front! Gotta keep finding ways to make various pieces of clothing work for you 😉

      Thank you! Yeah, I love the bag too! Amazing quality (wouldn’t expect any less from Italian leather) and lovely colour.
