White and Turquoise

WHITETURQCLOSEI’m having the best time indulging in my favourite Summer whites! This top isfrom Gap. It’s nicely sheer – not see through (which I don’t need) – it has a subtle pleat at each side of the neck giving it a controlled fullnes. It’s a very useful addition to the set of viscose tees I rotate regularly. Continue reading


Travel: Chinos and LBD Repeats

CHINOS2We went bowling in the mall with the kids and their friends. Luckily I was able to recycle the chinos that I wore as my travel outfit.  I went bowling only once before and this time I won! Continue reading


LASTPRINTJust added shots of the last time I wore it on holiday above and below when I had exactly 5 minutes to get ready to grab a quick dinner out.WRISTS2 UPDO3Minimal wrist adornments of purple Hapi bracelet and a silver cuff both by Hermès, Cartier watch and jade bangle.

Spring Blues, Kelly and Birkenstocks Verdict


SPRINGBLUECLOSEI’m finding it so very hard to shake off the heaviness of Winter when all I want to do is skip for Spring. To cheer myself up I took out some favourite blue pieces: the graphic pencil skirt by H&M also here, Gap rayon tee, vintage necklace, Hermès vintage crocodile cuff and Kelly 28cm in black box.

Grey Cable and Yellow Silk

It’s warm enough on its own when the weather improves but as it is, I need the thermal vests still underneath.

Travel: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

GUIDEThe driver (above) would stop every now and then for us to take photos by the road side.

ETA: Oh my giddy Aunt, I forgot about the blog paaardy over at Maison Bentley Style! Ooops sorry, I knew there was a reason I posted this yesterday in preparation for a 9am start this morning but plans turned into going swimming at 9am with the kids etc..etc…Anyway, here I am doing something I would never knowingly sign up for, not even for a dare, nor a bet, no way in fact but I managed – for me – an extreme sport, rock climbing without harness, rope or crampons. I wore only a black pair of Zara trousers, a flimsy H&M viscose tee, Clarks metallic leather flats and a silk Oasis scarf too small to fashion into a sling should any bone breakages occured. Thank you Guardian Angel for our safe return to terra firma! And Thank You to Kate for hosting!

REDROADDriving on.

ROAD11The red hills we saw from afar were now left behind.RESTAURANTTo be replaced with a river, rocks and boulders. We stopped for lunch, it was really nice to walk across the little wooden bridge and sit at the tables on the other bank shaded by the trees. We’ll save sitting right in the middle of the river bed for next time… Continue reading
