cold front

We've been enjoying a most welcome dip in temperature in the past few days. While January/February often brings in monsoon rains in Singapore, this cool weather is still quite unusual.

I've taken this sudden "drop" in temperature as a perfect opportunity to incorporate warmer elements into my looks.

On Monday
Wore my H&M leather gilet. 

The leather vest added a bit of rock and roll on this ensemble. 
The pants are hand-me-down's from my Mom and was stuck unworn in my closet for the longest time because I struggled with a good top to pair them with (I just knew I wanted to stay away from white as I didn't want to end up looking like a National Day costume). So I'm glad to discover that navy perfectly complements this bright red pair.

Oversized cashmere sweater
I am so obsessed with the knit/pullover+pencil skirt combo.
To avoid looking shapeless, you can bunch the sleeves up to the elbows (Sorry I forgot to take a photo.) or cinch with a belt.

...And just in case it gets warmer during the course of the day, I wore a black top underneath. 

I'm loving this new midi length (and pencil skirts in general!). They automatically make one feel elegant and sophisticated and are so flattering for almost any body type.

Accessorized with chunky silvers and a leather bracelet.

The downside to this weather is that after being caught under a light rain during my afternoon coffee run, I feel the beginnings of a cold. Ma's noodle soup and a good night's rest should help do the trick.

I was wearing
On Monday: Polka-dot loose top from H&M, Ma's hand-me-down pants, H&M leather gilet, Charles & Keith court shoes.
Today: Striped midi skirt from Rockwell Powerplant Mall (Manila), Topshop top, cashmere jumper from SM Surplus (Manila), Charles & Keith court shoes, F21 chunky silver bracelets, Parfois skeleton bracelet, leather bracelet gifted.
