I’m not one who dresses up in cute tops (think Hello Kitty), so this floral peterpan collared top from Primark seems to be an exception in my wardrobe. Besides…the material is thin which is great for Borneo’s hot and humid weather.
Top: Primark; Shorts: Vintage
Peterpan collars are still on trend, though maybe slightly wavering a bit but since fashion over here on the equator lags slightly it should be okay 😉 I hope to do a DIY embellished collar soon and when I do I’ll post pictures up! Or…maybe I could start on this top. Hmm…
To tone down the ‘cuteness’ of the peterpan collar I teamed it with vintage jean shorts (mum’s hand-me-downs), and a casually slung bag across my body.
Flip Flops: Havaianas; Bag: Vintage; Headband: Sereni & Shentel x Anna Coroneo (gifted)
A pair of Havaianas is a staple in one’s wardrobe (even Christian Louboutin said so himself)! It’s comfortable, comes in a massive range of colours and styles, 100% rubber, and dries quickly! Perfect yet again for the monsoon season in Borneo 😉
To end this post, I’d like to introduce you to Sereni & Shentel! They are artisans making beautiful headbands, and they hail from Borneo too! ALL their headbands are lovingly handmade in Borneo. I own a few headbands myself and they are gorgeous 😀 This particular headband is a favourite of mine gifted by a good friend and kept me particularly company during my Bar studies in the UK 😉 The headband was a collaboration with artist designer Anna Coroneo who is an artist and her prints are made into fashion statement pieces! Do check them out 😀
Also…congratulations to President Barack Obama on his re-election! It was a tight race! Malaysians could learn a thing or two about American politics – that voting really does matter 😉 If you are Malaysian and are eligible to vote, please register! Voting is a citizen’s fundamental right so don’t pass up the chance.
Have a great week everyone! xx
