[LOTD] Denim X Denim Part 2

Standard

P1150166

It has been a long-standing dream to do a denim on denim outfit. It’s incredibly hard to pull off denim apparels in one outfit as it can be a massive overkill.

I decided that in my denim on denim outfit, it needs to fuse different types of denim for the look to work. It feels like what I could possibly wear to college, if I am a college kid now. Of course, that’s a huge if.

Denim over-sized shirt – G Star Raw

Destressed denim with bling embelishments – Platinum Mall, Bangkok

Rubber flats – Zaxy

Grey backpack – Porter (which I borrowed from my hubby)

The bag itself is a statement piece. In fact, this is my husband’s Pièce de résistance (most outstanding, notable, or defining of the collection, Wikipedia). This is from the Porter Duke collection and it was so coveted it flew off the shelves almost immediately being stocked here in Singapore.

It was incredibly comfortable and I had so much fun with this outfit even though it was a huge challenge for me.

And, my favourite part of this photoshoot was our impromptu friendship photo-series.

This series is a reminder how Sweetpots is really more than just a beauty/fashion/lifestyle blog. It is how we celebrate our friendships by indulging in what we love best with the people we adore.

[LOTD] Denim X Denim Part 1

Standard

Denim is associated with casual clothing and the laid-back Western vibe. I adore my denims and I wouldn’t dream of doing without denims in my closet.

However, it’s a tad boring to do a t-shirt/top-comb all the time. Thus, I decided to do a 2-part denim tribute – how I would wear denim in 2 different ways.

Red bib top with gold embroidery – Far East Plaza

Straight-cut dark denim jeans – G-star Raw

Leather belt – Burberry (a tad loose, need to adjust it soon )

Suede wedges with leather ribbon details – Mitju

Black printed PVC bag – Agnes b, Shanghai

Love how my outfit is casual enough for brunch and yet not overly sloppy.

A close up of how the top looks. The versatility of this top is incredible. When matched with my favourite black harem pants and black blazer, I am all ready for work.

Evidence that comfort need not be compromised when dressing up. These wedges are comfy and I can walk all day in them.

On hot days like we are experiencing now in Singapore (33 degrees Celcius, horrible humidity and relentless sun), it’s tempting to wear a t-shirt and shorts together with flip flops. Dressing up need not be a pain. In fact, we need no excuse to dress up. There’s nothing wrong with being practical while being stylish.

Of course, if you have access to a cold cuppa coffee and air-conditioner, take that option! 🙂

Hope you like this post and keep a look out for Denim X Denim Part 2!

[LOTD] – Easy Breezy Weekender

Standard

I always like the Covergirl slogan “Easy breezy, Covergirl” so that was what I was trying to achieve – an outfit that embodies a easy breezy laidback charm.

The look was crafted in mind for a weekend date with the girls or even a casual date with a special someone.

Outfit details:

White tank top, New Look

Grey culottes, Platinum Mall Bangkok

Denim wrap blouse, Primark UK (at 3 pounds, it’s an absolute steal. Best part, I got it more than a year ago)

White canvas purse, Fendi

Silver ballerina flats, Tods

The outfit was oh-so-comfy, a definite sense of relief from my typical work ensemble of shift dresses and heels.

Freedom is when I don’t need to break my ankles from prolonged wearing of heels!

Adorable floral buttons add a sweet, Cath Kidson-ish feel to the light washed denim material. Too pretty to be true.
