Tjena Tjena Mittbena!





Just a quick post before I doze off - what I wore today to devour apricot danishes at the Magnolia Jewellery breakfast showing at the Guylian cafe and then to work. I had about 2 hours to spare in between everything, and it was only about 9am in the morning. It's such a strange feeling to be awake at 9am sitting in a park soaking up sunlight, wide awake, feeling like it's noon, when the majority of the people you know are probably still in bed or juuust beginning their day.







Snakeprint blazer: Zara
'All the lights' Skirt: Showpony
Basic tank: ASOS
Necklace: Vintage from Etsy
Persol sunglasses: Sunglass Hut
Insect necklace: Vintage from eBay
Leopard print clutch: Random Asian seller on eBay
Shoes: Random Asian seller on eBay



I woke up earlier today to the news of 56 exotic animals loose in Ohio. This includes tigers, bears and lions. It sounds so surreal, like a scene from a movie. I would absolutely lose my shit if I saw a bear charging at me in the middle of the Sydney CBD. Sadly, rangers had to kill 39 of the animals. It's so horrible that it had to be handled that way.

Just realised the tone of my writing in this post is a little flat. My feet feel like someone stabbed them in 3924892 different points and my eyes are slowly closing up shop.

My favourite photograph from the outdoor exhibition





The cutest little kid scootering down the park walkway. He was more co-ordinated than I will ever be.

You totally rock the mixture of animal prints. And that lovely necklace is quite a statement. I heard about the animals that were let loose...such a dreadful story to hear.

god, there's something i really love about this outfit and this entire post. that seems like a perfect way to start your day--dress the way you want, go to a park, an outdoor exhibition, then breakfast.

i'd love to do that one day. unfortunately Malaysia's parks aren't as awesome and Malaysia doesn't exactly appreciate art that much. :/

&i can see how you're so in love with your new accessories lately! that cuff and that vintage necklace :D btw, those shoes are crazy. i love'em. simplicity at its best. a million thumbs up if i had a million thumbs.

That's really, really sad to hear about the animals. Hopefully something like that doesn't happen again, soon.

I love how you accessorized your entire outfit, especially with that gorgeous, unique necklace.
