Where I stay now is a beautiful and relaxed area that is surrounded by blue water and palm trees, so I have also changed my style to more laid back and resort-ish. My current biggest fashion obsessions include anything with stripes, crossbody bags and loafers, that seem to be perfectly in sync with the warm weather here, and they will also be coming with me on my next vacation which is not far away!

Holiday season is just around the corner and I am starting to look for resort wear and travel friendly yet stylish shoes for my coming soon vacation. I had my eyes set on this pair of Stella McCartney Wedge Platform Loafers as soon as they were out, and little did I know they were completely sold out within days across major online stores for my size. I had to add my name on the wishlist for quite a while until they were restocked! They are uber chic luxe loafers with a mannish inspired look. Flatforms can feel chunky but this pair is very flexible as they are quite light and the heels are made of rubber. Perfect as ‘walking shoes’ and I can dress down or up with them.

Ankle booties are my biggest weakness when it comes to shoes – I have them on literally all year round. This year the western boots are the style to look for, and Toga Pulla is an emerging Japanese designer brand with their signature western boots that are trending all over the world. I was tossing between Toga Pulla Buckle Ankle Boots and the famous Chloe Suzanna which are quite similar, I went for the former because I love the unique design with their signature exquisite embellishments such as the leather fringe at the toe and the embossed plate on the heels. Moreover, both of them cut at the ankle but the fact that this pair has heels means that they will not make my legs look stumpy! Price point is not so bad for a designer shoe as they are in the lower spectrum, and I am totally smitten by their quality.
I bought mine here, and there are more styles from Toga Pulla available here.
I am very much into the crop top with flare skirt siluoutte lately. I bought this crop top from Zara a while ago as a motivation to encourage me to lose the post baby weight, and I am so glad I can finally strut it after all the hard work! The tweed flare skirt is from my favorite brand Theory who do the best office-appropriate wear with a fashionable spin to it. Really loving their Fall 2014 collection and this lovely dress is also on the way. (SAKS is having a shop and save event for up to $250 off with code CNTMP14 ). The shades by Thierry Lasry has a lovely translucent taupe frame with marbling detail which is hard to capture in the picture. It is definitely on the higher end of price range for me, but they hand-make the most beautiful translucent gradient over-sized frame and I wanted to take a break from wearing the usual black shades.

My new all season shoes Aquazzura Sloane Cutout Sandals (part bootie) which goes well with literally everything. They can be teamed up with leather or denim for a classic off duty look, or they can be mixed with floral prints to add softness and glamour. There is a reason that they are selling like hotcakes..I had to wait for months to get my size in stock. I’ll let the picture do the talking and by the way they are just incredibly comfortable.I bought mine here which is still quite low in stock, and if you don’t like the 4 inches heel there is the mid heel version here.
I am one of those girls who can never find a piece of clothing or a pair of shoes when I purposely look for it, so I always tend to buy random things that I come across and fall in love. For instance this pair of gorgeous ankle Studded Booties by Sigerson Morrison. It was love at first sight when I accidentally spotted it on Shopbop, and best of all it was on sale! So I immediately bought the last pair in my size. The small sized silver studs complements the taupish beige color (also comes in black leather), and the concealed wedge is just a genius idea as it gives some invisible height as well as adding a casual and effortless spin to the look. They are also very comfortable to wear and run true to size.
The Sigerson Morrison Accent Studded Booties can be found on Shopbop with 30% off, or at Bloomingdales with 20% off using code FRIENDS.
I’ve been actively planning my new outfits once I unload the baby, so I have stocked these two new pairs of oxfords during the sales! One in white, and one in black. They are perfect for the spring and summer, and I cannot wait to wear them out with my Rag and Bone Dash Slouchy Jeans.
Noela oxfords in white (purchased from Japan)
Messeca New York Max Clear Inset Oxfords (bought here) – bargain of the year as it’s on sale at 70% off!
I can never have too many ankle booties as I literally wear them all year round with everything. Bought these a few weeks ago and I haven’t taken them off since. The Rag and Bone Newbury is such a timeless style to have, and in my opinion every girl needs at least one pair in their closet. If you already do, then this new style adds a fashion twist to the classic as perforated leather is everywhere this season, and they also make booties much more wearable during the hot weather. Love love!
