Last month, I jetted off to Dubai to visit some friends and see more of the U.A.E than just the inside of their airports. I was reunited with Monisha, my awesome friend from uni, and Swetha, another friend I met while she was studying here. What Monisha didn't know is that our other friend Faaizah was also coming along with her sister. I don't know how we managed to keep that a secret until the surprise (I almost let it slip several times) but we did.
I asked my mum to take my blog photos recently and she said sure, we can take some and get lunch after. Thinking I had gotten myself another regular victimphotographer, I got all dressed up to meet her after work and take some outfit shots. However, my dream was short-lived with my mum taking about 5 photos before asking 'are we done? Let's go eat'. I got her to take a couple more before promising I'd never make her do it again. She works hard - who am I to stand between her and her lunch?
I picked up this Emoda jumper in Japan after trying a few things on in the store and deciding it was too cute to leave behind. You can actually wear it two ways - one side has a v neck while the other side is square. I prefer the v neck so I pretty much always wear it that way. Although the day we shot these photos was lovely, it was still quite chilly so I put on a ruffle neck shirt underneath, also an Emoda piece but from a few years ago. I wore this H&M skirt which I wear all the damn time right now (prepare to see it a lot on this blog) and my Topshop mules.
I feel like I look like I stepped out of a Cos lookbook here. Although, would Cos put their models in uncomfortable shoes? Probably not. Not that these Topshop mules are terrible, but this was my first time wearing them and I have the blisters to prove it. Will that stop me from wearing them all the time? Absolutely not.
I got the jumper on my recent trip to Tokyo. I love the oversized fit of it, and because it's thick it keeps its shape. The hoop earring is also from Japan from Emoda, one of my favourite brands. One of the pair broke when I got home, so I'm really glad I'm a fan of the one earring look. Other than that, I kept everything on the minimal side.
