Bateau Stripes

striped dress
This summer’s been all about dresses: comfortable, casual frocks that are easy to throw on and don’t require much when it comes to accessorizing. And this nautically inspired dress, found in Singapore this past spring, is one of the pieces that started it all. I knew that it’d be a wear-forever kind of piece since, although I don’t find myself wanting to wear a lot of colour these days, classics like cherry red and navy blue have been the exception… especially when combined into warm weather appropriate, no-fuss pieces like this one.

A Case for Flats

I recently thought about how rarely I wear heels nowadays. Just a few years ago, I’d have no problem heading out in the morning in a pair of 3-inch pumps. And even though my feet would hurt pretty quickly into the day, I would always justify that by how well the shoes pulled the outfit together. Blame it on getting older, but fast forward a few years and practicality and comfort have definitely taken top priority when it comes to getting dressed. Truth be told, most of the time when I wear heels on the blog, the flats are tucked away in a canvas bag that didn’t make the shot (yes, that’s how so many of us bloggers do it!). And so, with that being said, here’s what I really wore earlier this week for a day of running errands around the city. Happy Friday!
