soft focus and textures.













ASOS dual-tone coat, Vero Moda cardigan, Topshop sequin shirt, ASOS bouclé shorts, Mulberry Alexa bag, House of Harlow 1960 thigh-high boots

Dipped back into the hard drive for this post - pictures taken from our family trip to Paris. Family trips always involve a) eating, b) sleeping in until a wake-up call with breakfast brought in by parents who enjoy early morning walks too much, and c) Asian photo-taking syndrome through interactions with DSLRs and iPhones (see last photo above - taken by my dad of my sister taking a series of photos of me).

This outfit holds plenty of winter relevance for me - I still pull out a sequin shirt every time I crave some sparkle, my love for shorts means I endure tights, and I have too many grey cardigans I use for layering.

One of my favourite coats is this ASOS darling - while colour-blocking comes back every other season (see this Givenchy blazer), this coat also does texture-blocking very well (Club Monaco's Sojo blazer does the same - wish all school blazers had the same idea). Gray marl body, and black wool sleeves. The double-breasted motorcycle jacket feel of the coat gives it a little kick, although I can still wear the coat to professional events thanks to the colour and length.

Missing the sun in Paris; everything there is seemingly seen through a soft-focus lens...
