Linen roll-sleeve popover – Gap. Jeans – FrameDenim.

I must be one of those folk for whom the season of summer is a general questionmark for their closets wherein rumpled sweaters form burrowed eyebrows along the top shelf and winter coats and beachwear generally hang side-by-side in this arrangement:  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯? because the other day it was cold as balls – excuse ze language – and today I am wearing a singlet that may also be translucent. At this point I am just happy that we decided to place the office desks a few feet away from the windows facing the street, because this half-naked Asian lady violently fanning Vogue inserts is now shaking to the beat of Ciara’s Goodies. Hey wait, it actually might be a good time to move towards the window, given that I’m not really getting any work done. They throw money when you strip, right?

Here’s a few summer get-ups, mostly consisting basics from Gap. Let me know if I’m doing it right, from a scale of the-cold-never-bothered-me-anyway to she-had-dumps-like-a-truck-truck. Was never too great at maths, if you couldn’t tell.

  11. Hey Shini,

    I love how chic and elegant you are in these photos – and all of your blog posts really – but how goofy and down to earth you seem on snap chat. :) It’s inspiring to see someone as put-together and hardworking as you also have a fun side.

    Keep doing what you’re doing.

  15. These photos are sick. Whoever your photographer is, they’re amazing. And of course, your style is impeccable.

  16. lol! Same here in Sydney – it’s Winter and frosty cold most days then you have the occasional warm day. My designated clothes chair is a mix of tanks and shorts with jackets and jeans and scarves!

  17. Great text. It’s so funny. And I love your photos. <3

  18. Beautiful pictures, love every look and your accessories Oh my! just perfection! Love it.

  21. Your writing style is so refreshing (and downright hilarious) that it’s very difficult to come here *just* for the fashion/style (which is – as ever – very much on point). Always such a pleasure to read your entries, Shini

    (P.S. – where can I get this cute skateboard??)

    Flared jeans and tucked in shirt is the holy grail of casual chic style (just pretending that I know what I’m talking about… But I’m sure you understand…). In other words, love your outfits!

  23. Lol, I liked the ensembles you put together & your humor in the post (:

  31. she is very beautiful

  32. Love the second picture! Still in awe how you maintain to have a neat, easy to navigate, magazine-esque blog. Not my aesthetic, but if I could fall in love with a different style, it might as well because of the creator has been successful in doing what she do best.

  33. Very beautiful looks, they are simple and perfect. Such outfits inspire to look for own style not in the “mainstream” trends, but in the simple and elegant things. I love it. And it is why I adore hipster’s style in clothing, when each thing in my look has sense and spirit.

  34. You are looking cool . love love

  35. I love all three outfits, you’ve totally nailed the vagaries of British summer style. Pretty awesome to see you on a skateboard too, very cool!

  39. Good post!
    Of course, what you most want in summer is to go outdoors. A good way to enjoy good weather is to go skateboarding. The one you wear is cool a lot. If you want to do with your skateboarding go to https://locorider.com/en/
    A greeting!
