La Fleur de Nuit

  Evenings after work are best spent with those close to heart.
You can just be yourself without the need for incessant chatter and small talk, 
simply unwind over a cup of coffee and some magazines at your favourite cafe.

On this summer's evening, I've chosen to don this monochrome floral midi dress for our little cafe date.

A signature item never gives itself away.
It's timeless.
It transcends fashion.

- How to be Parisian Wherever You Are

I have a penchant for moto jackets, I absolutely love them for their versatility!
As much as I like coloured moto jackets, I think having one in black is a must. 
It's classic, timeless and can be paired with so many different outfits.

I've brought this particular piece with me on so many of my trips, it has become my 'go to' piece when it comes to choice of outerwear.
Of course, knowing me I'd usually bring more than one piece of outerwear depending on the climate of the country I'm travelling to.

Unfortunately, the weather in sunny Singapore doesn't really allow for us to wear much outerwear, even less of leather ones but that doesn't hinder my love for them.
So every time the weather is slightly cooler, you can be sure I'll be taking my chances!
I'd definitely classify this moto jacket as my signature item ;)

[OUTFIT] Romantique

July, the month where Summer is in the air and pretty flowers blooming in its full glory.
Imagine what a joy it'll be, taking walks along the Seine in Paris or St. James Park in London admiring these lovely sights. 
But I'll always be a romantic at heart.

In this post, 
we attended a friend's wedding lunch so I wore this beautiful cocktail dress with intricate lace details paired with nude coloured lace peep toe heels and gold toned accessories to keep the look classy and feminine.
I wore my shoulder length tresses in a simple braided side bun updo for a romantic touch.

Gold accessories are my favourite,
they never fail to add a touch of luxe to any outfit.
When I saw these babies in Paris,
I knew I had to bring them home with me!
I love Ferragamo's signature bow designs,
they're such timeless classics.

Alex found this photography spot and suggested taking some photos here,
I really like how the photos turned out!
This place looks so serene.
I'm thankful he's so supportive of my hobby :)
I'm glad to be able to enjoy this moment of serenity with him in a bustling little metropolis we call home.
