Before I begin: Happy 50th Birthday, Singapore!

I am ever thankful for friends who indulge me in my requests for them to help me take photos. I turn 20 this year and that's a huge milestone, for me at least, so I wanted to put more effort into this set of photos that I intended to post up on Instagram for my birthday. I spent a good part of my morning on a floating platform overlooking the sea, and had a good Eggs Benedict to sate my insatiable appetite for all things brunch.  

But moving onto this dress - I originally noticed it only because I wanted to buy it as a birthday present for a friend, but then I had to buy one for myself. It was a hasty decision made in my hostel room that involved me running to a neighbour's room to bang on her door to ask for her opinion, and I ended up buying it within five minutes. It's a really flowy fabric, printed with the most gorgeous flowers in shades of blue, and is what I imagine a nereid would like to wear.

According to Greek mythology, the Nereids are sea nymphs that symbolize everything beautiful and kind at sea.

Let's Talk About Stripes

So... let's talk about stripes, shall we? Or stripes and button-up shirts, to be exact. I'm not sure about you, but there's just something about striped button-ups that's quite irresistible. I have another one in a looser, more relaxed fit, and whenever I can't think of anything to wear, I immediately think of these two shirts - so much that I might be neglecting everything else in my wardrobe. In any case, stripes are such a classic and elegant print that it really doesn't hurt to have a few more striped pieces in your arsenal. (Coincidentally enough, I'm wearing stripes as I type this. Stripe-ception much?) 

I had brunch with the family at Pacamara a while back, and the photo of my stack of pancakes was too gorgeous not to share. I've also really been into this pair of pants for a while now. I've stayed away from pants for many years, simply because I couldn't really find a pair that fit quite right. This pair is high-waisted and long enough (just what I love), though I do wish it would be a little more tapered at the ankle! And I'm pretty much obsessed with my new boots, because ombré, and zips. Need I say more?
