This is my final post for Tocco Tenero. Like how I always get when an amazing journey comes to an end, I’m feeling a slight tinge of sadness and melancholy… Or maybe it’s just that I can’t bear the thought of not being able to breeze into their store and pick something lovely for myself anymore next month on. 😦 This month, I picked for myself a gorgeous lime coloured leather tote. Obviously still stuck in my neon/bright coloured phase, it was love-at-first-sight when I saw the bag sitting in the display. My head shouted, ‘Mine!!’ and I grabbed onto the bag and didn’t let it go.
I took the bag out to run some errands yesterday and matched it with this sample dress from Pink Flare. I’ve got a couple of designs currently in production and this is one of my favourites. Besides obsessing over bright colours, I’m also loving styles with cut-in shoulders. Although wishing that I’ve got straighter and more ‘model-like’ shoulders, I still think there’s something subtly sexy about shoulder baring styles. Of course, I also think that the colour block design and cut-out detail on the front is super ingenious and pretty. Haha. :p
So anyway, before my head gets too big…I’d better be off and leave you guys with the pictures that The Boy shot.

I don’t always plan my outfits starting from clothing first. Sometimes, it starts from a pair of shoes that I really want to wear, or a belt, ring, bag or a particular colour that I want to experiment with. Ok, I admit. It usually starts with my newest purchase. 😀 The neon yellow ring and snake skin belt with yellow accents are my most recent purchase and of course, I was dying to wear them. Yellow is not a usual colour that I go for, but I have been gravitating towards that colour a lot recently and I’m starting to play with that colour from small accents first. And what luck too, I picked for myself this red bag from Tocco Tenero recently only to find that yellow and red matches perfectly. Yay!
The boy and I made a pit-stop en route to dinner to shoot these pictures. We abandoned our initial plans to shoot at a particular building when we spotted this red vintage Volkswagen Beetle. Feeling rather lucky once more, I posed around it, keeping my fingers crossed that I won’t look like an ah lian sports car model. :p
Fridays don’t mean a lot to me now that I run my own business. I don’t have fixed work timings, I work on weekends too and being the workaholic that I am, I sometimes work everyday, all day. Trying to find more of a work-life balance is my goal, soon. Anyhow, I got dressed this morning with casual Friday in mind anyway and because I was going to be running around, I put on sneakers and shorts for comfort. It was the first time I was putting on these leopard print double-soled sneakers that my sis lugged back from Tokyo for me and I was excited to wear them. So excited that I worked my outfit up from the shoes!
Really really happy to have finally collected these PF Collection pastel coloured shirt dresses. I’ve been waiting a long time for these and am so happy the wait was not in vain because they’re gorgeous! What better time for them to be ready too now that pastels are everywhere. It’s an awesome Friday! 🙂
Have a lovely weekend everyone! xo
