Sometimes in the sweltering heat it’s hard enough to be wearing a bikini let alone some sort of clothing. However unfortunately for me, dressing up is an invisible rule of conduct in my department that I intern for. Signed up for a marketing internship awhile back and although I love what I am doing now, work has never been so brain consuming. My job drains every drop of energy left in me and I quickly adopted an evening nap, roughly from 7.30pm - 9.30pm on weekdays. With the notion of another day, another pencil skirt, it kind of reignited my love for these little crop top things after spotting a beige version on ASOS and another white light weight crop top when I was at Hollister in Hongkong in January.
A good 3 weeks in of my internship and consecutive sober Friday nights, Sche and I have concluded that we are boring working adults. Keeping to just one beer, we dedicated our Good Friday for some daylight girl time with brunch, taking photos, lengthy conversations and a lot of shopping.
Lately, a date by the beach feels ideal. Even after enduring a very hot and dry season for a start, the beach in this sunny city is one of my very favourite things about being home for our Singapore summer. Photos always turn out better. Plus being able to wear a sheer piece of lace dress and feeling my toes again is always a bonus! Its funny how my teenage self used to look forward to end the season somewhere cold with Perth and Melbourne as a perfect destination. June holidays were always filled with knitwear and coat shopping in the family. Maybe that sense of excitement got me hooked on travelling. Eventually, the need to travel at least once every year settled in. Travel plans have surfaced this year, in hopes that all will fall into place, I shall settle with months of being in a love nest and a book by my side. With the xx playing in town, the first half of 2013 feels just right. Yay!
