It's all about the details.

Posted on: 09 December 2010

Converse are definitely NOT the best thing to wear when it snows but sometimes I'm not that practical. Wearing my new studded knee socks layered over my dot tights are also not ideal for such chilly weather. Despite pulling on my trusty Westwood coat, I may as well have been wearing no tights at all. Lesson learnt...I think.

Next time I'll have to layer up with more opaque tights but I do like the little details with the mixture of dots and the cutesy ribbon print.
Ribbons and spots
Cardi (Random store) Top (Uniqlo Heattech) Skirt (Sunday Upmarket Brick Lane) Tights (Primark) Knee socks (River Island) Shoes (Converse)
I found these waiting for me on the dining room table the other day. These Koala cookies definitely bring back a bit of nostalgia from my childhood and are just as fun as I remember! I was so happy to be reunited with them again that my mom now keeps buying cute boxes of confectionery whenever they catch her eye at the Chinese supermarket. No, I am definitely not complaining!
Koala Cookies
chocolate and strawberry flavour!

Some other nice surprises are getting a coffee (a mocha in this case) and finding something completely unexpected. Yeah it might only be a little heart sprinkled on top with chocolate but this little detail definitely made my day! In true blogger style, I snapped it up.

I could so do with a cuppa right now...

  17. Such a cute outfit!
    I use to wear converses all the time. But then i realised they're not that comfy, and they really don't keep your feet warm! I find them a bit flat now when i try them on.
    Although, i do like the converse lite collection.

  18. That IS a really cute outfit... shame it wasn't warmer. Are those Converse leather?

  19. The socks and tights look really cool, like they're one pair of tights! It makes me smile so much when you post about Chinese snacks and food because I'm always like aah I know those haha! Also, you're looking very slim in these photos :) Any comments about weight are always a bit iffy online because you can't tell if they're nice or nasty but I hope it take mine as a compliment! I'm walking on eggshells here! Maybe it's best not to say anything at all, I dunno! Anyway, you look very nice x
