I bring sunshine to a hazy day

April 26, 2012



Couldn't find a more suitable backdrop than this concrete mess to make my bold pants stand out in complete contrast. These photos were taken at a random area near my workplace. In reality, it isn't a very desirable place to shoot at, what with dirty building walls behind and uneven grounds. But I had that moment when I was like, "oh this would do", as Penguin and I walked about looking for a spot. Surprisingly the photos turned out well, and like I said, the background made my outfit stand out, don't you think?




I was feeling rather cheerful and I guess that it reflected on what I wore this morning. Very spring/summer in my opinion. I'm bored with wearing too much blacks to work, all corporate-ish, that my outfits needed to be spiced up a little. This floral shirt was my start-up piece. I think a lot could go with it (pinks and greens), but I opted for these bright yellow trousers, which I haven't worn in a while. Surprisingly, they seemed to fit me better than they used to. I remember complaining about how unflattering they looked on me, the main reason why I barely wear them. It must be the fold at the bottom, or having tucked a shirt in. I don't know. But if they look well now, why bother, right?




Anyway, with this post, I hope I brought sunshine to your day. Now, I'm off to bed. Goodnight loves. Till my next!

Cheers, Carla

  11. I love the backdrop because it's not very colourful, it makes the colour of your trousers pop. I also love it because it emphasises how polished your look is. I love your shirt xo

  12. Hello, Carla! I totally agree. The backdrop is perfect for the yellow pants. I feel so annoyed today and I think it reflects so much in the kinds of clothes and colors we choose to wear. I can't wait for the day to be over.

  20. You look so cute ! ^^ Nice sunnies, and really love your jeans. I've been searching for a perfect yellow pair, but there weren't any of my sizes left at one store..

    Thank you for the comment! Heh nice to hear that I remond you of someone. Hmm who might that be :) By the way, my studies are slightly similar to yours; mine is Cultural management - which is basically organizing events. But could be more, like job at TV or something like my friends.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend! Do stop by anytime again / start following each other. That would be fun!
