 black floral maxi skirt: tailormade in Hoi An, Vietnam
white strappy top: New Look
denim jacket: H&M
statement necklace: Forever 21, Times Square NY
strap pumps: Shoe Zone

It's been a while since I've given a proper 'outfit post'. This is mainly because of my rubbish camera that I acquired in Bangkok (mine got stolen out there so I just purchased the cheapest possible) so I can no longer take my well-known shots in front of the yellow wall because they are annoyingly blurry. I braved the outside world (brrr!) to take these today and, thankfully, got clearer snaps.

Today is set to be a productive one with a to-do list as long as the Nile. Normally I'll stay quite happily in my pyjamas and heavenly slippers all day but I thought I better get a good head on and get dressed properly. This skirt is possibly my favourite acquisition from my travels around South East Asia last October. Over a three-day process, this skirt (along with another in a different fabric) was tailor-made for me at Mr Xe's in Hoi An; a beautiful, out-of-this-world town.

Just wearing it is making me feel awfully nostalgic.
