Quick Dinner Run

Hello, all!
My husband finally got his way overdue haircut last weekend, and I'm so pleased to finally see my handsome man again, hahaha.
He looks a lot younger than me now, which means I will need to get my haircut, pronto.
Can you believe my last haircut was September last year?
I am incredibly loyal to my hair stylist; no one else is allowed to touch my hair but Ivan Tong from Number76!

Anyway, once I got my handsome husband back, we went to Damansara City (DC) Mall for a small dinner at Ben's Independent Grocer.
By small, I meant we shared one piece of beef lasagna with salad!
I actually wanted the roast chicken with chips, but they already cleaned out the fryer almost an hour before closing time, sigh.
Thankfully, the lasagna and salad was delicious, so half of it was actually good enough for me!

So here is my idea of a casual look for the weekends:

Top: Zara
Jeans: Alexander McQueen
Flats: Givenchy
Vintage bag: From mom
Vintage necklace: Joseff of Hollywood
Vintage ring: Joseff of Hollywood

Initially, I went with a fitted cropped white t-shirt, but changed in the end because I felt bloated and needed a top that wasn't judgemental, HAH!
My best friend actually has the same top; we got it at the same time but mine is from Kuala Lumpur and hers from Bangkok, with the hope that we will be able to wear it together some day, hehe.

STYLING TIP: Spice up a plain white top with a pop of colour! In this case, I wore a matching necklace and cocktail ring together with a red lip to compliment my otherwise plain look. Extra points if your white top has something special, like ruffle sleeves!

Here is a close-up of the ring I had on and details on my jeans:

As for the jeans, I have been in love with them ever since I saw them go down the Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-to-Wear runway.
I thought the slashed design is really cool, only to find out it is actually embroidered, which makes it even cooler.
It is also high-waisted, so I can finally wear all my shorter or cropped tops without flashing my flabby bits to strangers, WOOHOO!

Here are the necklace and ring on their own:

The stone and beads on the necklace are actually of the same shade as the one on the ring, but they're more of a married set than a demi parure; the ring is a piece from a different set of jewelry, which I know Joseff collectors are very familiar with!

Would you try the matching jewelry trend?
Or even matching your lip colour to your jewelry?
