Black and taupe jacket, Tout a Coup; Printed cigarette jeans, c/o 7 For All Mankind; Wedge boots, c/o YesWalker; Nails, Essie Cute As A Button.

I flutter between girlish chic and the realm of fashion unknown on a weekly basis. Working in fashion means no two days are the same, whether in the office or in the wardrobe, and this look was something I put together for day one of Vogue Festival, in fact.

Working the sports luxe look with my own spin, here I paired my collarless jacket with my 7 For All Mankind cigarette jeans. The jacket was another of my infamous impulse buys, snapped up when shopping with my cousins in Hong Kong. It looked absolutely amazing in their lookbook worn as a shirt with a drop hem dress underneath, so I thought I'd whack my own take on it all with these patterned cigarette fit jeans from 7FAM's Black and White collection. L-o-v-e. These jeans require some semblance of heel, especially when you hover around the 5"1 end of the height scale, so I went for my taupe wedge boots to balance out height with comfortable wearing.

I'm currently trying not to feel too insanely jealous of my Dad and brother as they sun themselves in our second (or technically third?!) home over in Malaysia. My cousin is getting married(!!) next week and I a) can't afford to be away from work (#freelancer problems!) and b) can't leave my sister at home as my Mama works crazy hours. Le sigh. Dad is planning a few days in Thailand too… Don't mind me, not seething with jealousy at all Papabear...
