Fruit Loop

Hello, all!

If you remembered in my last blog post, I mentioned that my best friend came to visit from Bangkok.
So although we went to a nice shopping mall, I am sad to report that we went home empty-handed.
Actually, I'm happy that I left the mall unscathed since mid-year sale have already started, phew!

My best friend was leaving in the late afternoon, so she had some time for a facial in the morning, a wee bit of shopping in my neighbourhood mall, and then lunch.
After dropping her off to her appointment, I followed my dad for breakfast and was very thankful that it rained during the wee hours of the morning; the weather was AMAZING.

Since I was in a good mood, I decided to dress up a little but skipped jewelry altogether because I will be walking on the streets alone and that could be dangerous in my area where crime is uncommon but still can happen.
But that doesn't mean I cannot look my cheery best!

It was a cloudy day; like I told my other good friend, I needed my dose of sunshine yellow and fruity rainbow!

STYLE TIP: Never shy away from having too many bright colours in an outfit! In my case, I made sure to only wear one item with the most colour combination, while keeping everything else in a single solid shade. Yellow shoes would have been overkill, so I picked a neutral-toned pair with a nice pop of white.

Vintage top: From a thrift store
Shorts: From a thrift store
Flats: Birki's by Birkenstocks (from a thrift store)
Vintage bag: From a thrift store

That fruit-print top was something I pulled out at the very last minute while waiting in line at the cashier in the thrift store; it was SO colourful and I obviously could not resist.
If you look closely, you could see papayas, apples, cherries, oranges, grapes, strawberries, and kiwis.
It even has large mother-of-pearl-like buttons, which I totally have a thing for.
And you may not be able to see it in the photo, but the top actually has an attached hoodie, albeit a useless one, haha.

I must say that yellow wicker bag is far more versatile than I anticipated.
I've been using it for three consecutive days (documented one HERE); to think that I almost left it back at the store.
*shrieks in horror*
I was worried that it won't be getting much wear, but I was glad to be proven wrong thrice!
