More adventures between myself and my tripod & remote controller set-up! I'm still trying to get the hang of taking photos by myself, especially with full-length shots! Unlike close-ups, there's not as much bokeh in the background, and getting the lighting right is difficult. I think I might switch to a different lens to achieve creamier, bigger bokeh but the harsh contrast of sunlight is still my biggest enemy in my experience so far!
This is the first time I've worn a trumpet skirt, and it's quite possibly the flirtiest and cutest piece a girl could have in her wardrobe! The beauty of it is that it's fitted at the top but the hemline is flared for a good mix of sexy and flirty. VGY Store is a Singapore-based online boutique and their lookbooks are amazing! So many beautiful pieces and beautiful photography. This trumpet skirt is from the latest Spring Mediterranean Collection, and comes in other colours.
I was also gifted this lovely 'Audrina' necklace from a Melbourne-based online jewellery boutique called Misabelle Sparkle. The brand name is only as pretty as the product! I don't really own too many statement necklaces as I've always found them to be quite hard to pair with outfits. But here are some tricks I've discovered that make it work! :)


How to Wear Statement Necklaces:

  • Tip 1: keep the rest of the outfit simple and treat the necklace as if it were an extra layer.
  • Tip 2: It's also best to stay away from prints and patterns and stick to block colours, and let the statement jewellery piece shine without too much clashing going on.
  • Tip 3: keep the neckline of your top/dress simple. An open collar or other types of cuts that interfere with the space of your necklace, can look messy.
  • Tip 4: keep the rest of your jewellery minimal so there's not too much sparkle going on!

  1. I looove the color of the top, the shape of the skirt and the clutch! You're right that they let the necklace shine. :)

  2. I actually like this smaller bokeh! It looks minty & glittery - very matchy matchy with your outfit! The skirt is really cute btw. I want to get one in leather. I think they'd be pretty versatile despite the modern cut! Gorgeous outfit as always!

  4. Honestly? I really love the pictures you take by yourself! The bokeh is beautiful! I totally get that it's hard to take pictures in a very well (maybe too well?) lit environment, I sometimes fight that curse (or blessing) too. Lovely pictures and even more loely outfit! The skirt is really romantic and dreamy!
