Last Minute Dinner Date

Hi, everyone!
My husband decided to take me out for dinner in a mall awhile ago because it was scorching hot; the weather has been so unpredictable that it is triggering migraines, and I cannot be more thankful for modern medicine to help keep them in check.

Besides the ongoing battle with headaches, I'd also normally feel lazy when it comes to last-minute outings and stick to a t-shirt and denim shorts outfit.
Not this time though; I should be pleased with myself!
I think all that dressing-up-momentum I gained made me want to look more presentable when I'm in public.

Our initial plan was to have meatballs in Ikea, but the crazy queue quickly changed our minds.
So, we dashed to Kluang Station instead for our fix of delicious (and sizeable portions) of local food.

Top: From a thrift store
Jeans: Levi's
Flats: Birki's by Birkenstock (from a thrift store)
Clutch: From a thrift store
Belt: Terranova

That top reminds me of what Dolores Abernathy from Westworld have worn in the show; I think I'll have to do an inspired outfit soon!
It is actually too big for me, but I can't help myself from buying because it is SO CUTE (and also very cheap but I digress WTF).

My jeans are also actually three sizes too big; I got this a couple of years ago and while I was meatier.
It was still a little loose then, but gungho me wanted it anyway because I was looking for comfortable straight-cut light-wash jeans.
While I don't exactly regret them, I certainly appreciate better-fitted (but still loose) jeans now!

Here's a close-up of my top (those shirring!) and my colourful straw clutch:

STYLING TIP: If your outfit is neutral or simple, throw in some fun accessories; my favourite would be a plain-shaped clutch with punchy colours!

When my husband saw the clutch I was holding, he asked me why was I holding a piñata WTF.
*heads desk*
I love how comfortable it is to hold; it doesn't feel scratchy at all.
Plus, I love the Missoni-like colours and pattern!

So that's it for the quick dinner!
What would you wear when on a last minute date?
