I’m gonna let you in on a little blogger secret – we like to wear outfits twice because we didn’t have the time or thought to shoot the outfit. Or maybe that’s just me.

I bought this long-line leather jacket during early autumn and I was absolutely in love with it. I’ve been looking for one like it for aaages but couldn’t find any. I love how a long outerwear looks with a high-waisted bottoms. Well, who am I kidding, all my bottoms are high-waisted. But I especially like it ok!

While wearing such a cool and badass outfit (leather jacket and all!), I thought why not bust out my Miu Miu ballet flats ripoff from Zara and add another layer of coolness to an already cool outfit? (Ok I promise that was the last time I’m saying cool. Oops)

I know what you’re thinking though. You live in England. Still in the depths of winter. How the hell are you wearing that paper-thin leather jacket? Well… reader. This is my secret weapon:

Every time I want to wear a jacket that’s too thin during Winter, I just tuck in my Uniqlo ULD underneath. It’s so easy because it’s so thin, but probably one of the warmest jackets I have. This is a total must-have for all you fashionistas out there who still want to look stylish during the Winter months.

I have to admit… This one is a bit of an old outfit. By old, I mean… Two weeks old. Last week, my best friend, Hanie, came to visit me for a week. Hence why I did not post anything. Just when I had a great outfit, it was raining. Helloooo spring.

Phil and I (Phil again? What’s new right) went to Tate Modern because sometimes we just feel like being cultured and artsy, ya know? Of course I wanted to dress for the occasion and came up with this pyjama-like concoction of an outfit. I wanted to dress down the otherwise formal-ish outfit with a jumper, and thought a matching colour would be more interesting. To be honest I want to wear this jumper forever because it’s so comfy!

susJust to give you a head’s up – April might be the busiest month in the history of my bachelor’s degree. I have only one month left to literally conduct my non-existent focus group and finish my dissertation, and a dozen other assignments, while also applying for postgraduate degrees. So I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to post outfit pictures I took last year when my mum and I went to travel England a bit.

Spring? What Spring?

As I upload these pictures for this post, I’ve just realised how accurate this outfit is as a representation of the weather in London these past few days – a little bit of spring, a little bit of flowers blooming, but still overall really dark and cold. I mean, we all get a bit too excited when we see the sun, don’t we? In reality, it’s still cold as hell.

Now… I have to admit. I am in a bit of a style rut. I am basically bored of all the clothes I have in my wardrobe. I only wear a handful of things, and trust me when I say I have an absolute shitload of clothes. The top that I’m wearing here is an old one, and this is my attempt in trying to make use of my wardrobe and not just wear the same polo neck jumper every single day. Can’t help it though. It’s really freaking cold in London! And since I come from a tropical country, my clothes are mostly really thin.

My hair is also getting quite long. Which is why on that day, I was actually going to Blue Tit in Dalston to chop it even shorter! I am still not too sure how I feel about the cut. I mean, I think it’s actually exactly what I wanted, but I’m questioning whether the length/style is suitable for me. It might be a little too short to suit me. Sorry for being a little tease and not actually posting a picture of it here. I guess you’ll have to stay tuned til next week’s post to see it!

P.S. I hope you will excuse my photographer’s skill in …photography. Lol. He’s working on it 😉

Unwinter-like Winter + Update

Oh God, here I go again. Haven’t posted in ages. To be completely honest with you I was in constant debate whether to move my blog to Blogger or not. I just feel a bit more comfortable there and feel like I can gain more readers somehow. I thought it was easier here in WordPress but it’s still much more passive than I thought.

And yes, I did cut my hair short! I finally took the plunge and decided to go to Hershesons and just get a(n unbelievably expensive) haircut (I am from Indonesia so haircuts in the UK seem freaking costly to me). Leaving the salon, I was very happy with my hair, but after a few days I just wasn’t sure about how it looks when I style it myself. I did try and curl it earlier today and I love the way it looks! Though the front bits are a bit too long :\

GOING BACK TO THE ACTUAL OUTFIT POST…
I wore my favourite &Other Stories bomber jacket which I am so very glad I got in the sales a few months ago. It’s honestly sooo warm. When everyone else is freezing their arses off, I was perfectly fine in that jacket. Definitely get your hands on it!

I like to mix textures to create different ‘vibes’ with my outfits. By pairing it with a knitted jumper, I think it just tones the disco-ness of it and makes it look more laid-back. Also wore my cool new Converse that my boyfriend got me for Christmas to add a bit of colour to my otherwise black outfit.
