    Seasons a-changing

    The daylight hours are stretching out longer as February inches closer to March. I get excited whenever I see traces of Spring coming, though this means I have to stop looking at oversized coats whenever I head out and remind myself that I won’t get to wear them anymore when Winter leaves us.

    I have been waiting to wear this one for quite a while now – a military jacket that I snagged from a store along the streets of Venice when I was there last Summer. (Wow, the Singaporean girl is talking seasons!) I hesitated for a bit before I chose to wear a warm shade of purple together with a cooler toned one. I might be finding excuses in case I committed a fashion faux pas, but I suppose it could stand for the transition between different seasons that we are experiencing now. (ha ha ha, I just cringed at myself typing that sentence)

    Getting into texture play

    My beloved plaid-esque pants make their third appearance! They’re not the thickest pair of pants around so I reserve them for sunnier days. Then again, if people can survive here in tights, I think I should be fine with thin-material slacks.

    The temperature finally hit two digits yesterday (yay!) and if not for the crazy strong wind, the weather would have been purr-fect. I think it’s time to introduce more printed pants into my wardrobe – I was at the Blaak market yesterday and saw a girl wearing the prettiest green tartan slacks. I would have gone up to ask her about them if I wasn’t so captivated by her bright purple furry sweater.

    This time ’round, I paired these pants with a tweed blazer from Tommy Hilfiger that I got when I was in the U.S. a couple of years back. It has a lovely texture and fared pretty well against the strong wind. I’ve only ever worn it out once back home and I was indoors all that time. I’m pretty glad that this was made for cold weather, but that means I don’t get to wear it out much back in Singapore… oh well.

    Layering up

    “Winter is just going to get worse.”

    I’ve probably had about ten different people telling me the same thing since I landed in the Netherlands two weeks ago. Granted, I’ve had bad days (and even worse nights) when I start to yearn for a little Singapore sunshine but we haven’t seen any snow yet, so it’s all good… for now.

    The past few days were sunny and beautiful. A sweater was still essential, but I didn’t have to lug my heavy coat around like I would have done on a regular, gloomy day. I snagged this light trench coat from a flea market in Singapore, as I did with these blue high-waisted corduroys.
