Stripes It!

As much as I love to wear cropped tops, I don't fancy showing too much midriff. My limit is an inch. Thus, majority of the time, I would wear cropped tops with high-waisted bottoms be it mini skirts, shorts, skorts, pants, midi skirts and tulle skirts.

In some cases, because my torso is so short, my midriff is not exposed at all (like in this outfit). Wearing cropped tops isn't all about revealing one's midriff. It is also about "altering" one's body proportion. When you wear a cropped top with a high-waisted bottom, it immediately makes your legs appear a lot longer than they actually are. And as a result, it makes you appear taller too especially in photos, till you stand next to someone tall. LOL.

Cropped tops are my summer wardrobe staples. Therefore, when I saw this cropped shirt, I immediately know I need to get it! :D It will look good with any high-waisted bottoms, a great twist to a regular crisp white shirt.

Nothing says summer like cropped tops and mini skirts. Hope you like this outfit. Have a great week ahead.

It has been more than a year since I last wore this pair of tropical print shorts. It wasn't by choice though. I piled on quite a bit of weight and as a result the shorts was way too tight-fitting for my liking. I'm glad those hours I put into Pilates and treadmill in the last 2 months pay-off.

Aztec & Gingham

What a sheer coincidence that both my top & skirt have the same shade of powder blue!! Before my trip to Tokyo in late March, I had not a single piece of powder blue apparel as somehow powder blue never appealed to me till recent months. Now I have 4 pieces of apparels and 1 clutch bag!! This just shows how easily I can be seduced when fashion is concerned. LOL!

Aztec prints are usually very brightly coloured hence I find this mellow pastel blue aztec print top refreshing. And I got it at quite a good discount at Murua summer sale too!! :)

This is my first time mixing aztec with gingham. I think they turned out quite pleasing to the eyes. Hope you like it too. Have a great week ahead!!!

What better time to wear tropical prints other than summer? To be honest, I don't have many tropical prints apparels. In fact, before this cute palm trees top & shorts set from Sheinside, I have only a pair of 2 year-old tropical print shorts from Zara. Since tropical prints are hot this summer, I decided to add one more to my wardrobe.

Summer takes me back to those young & reckless days where I would suntan at the beach slathered with tanning oil SPF2!!! I recoil from the sheer thought of it. Now, I am confronted with all the sun damages that I inflicted upon myself. These days, older & wiser, I diligently apply sunblock SPF45 before I step out of the house. And if I wanted a tan, I would use self-tanning lotion to fake one instead. My reckless tanning days begone.
