Second Wind

It's been so hot these past few days, I haven't been in the mood to dress up. So lazy. I normally just throw on a dress and that's it. Then I remembered I had this pair of paperbag linen shorts with adjustable side ribbons I got from Uniqlo two years ago and voila! Something new to wear!

(Tee: T by Alexander Wang, Shorts: Uniqlo, Sandals: See by Chloe, Bag: Mulberry Alexa)

See how it used to look two years ago, back when I was conservative and baduy and wore it puruntong style! Wahahaha!

I love it when I find old clothes to recycle into something new! So this is what "shopping your closet" feels like! It really pays to buy classics that withstand the test of time. It's just a bonus that Uniqlo is so darn cheap! Loves it!

Pictures indeed show the biggest difference - in our looks (as we get old), in how our styles change. I love the alteration you did to your pants! I also love doing something with my old clothes when I couldn't wear them anymore.

I also like the all-military color look and using different shades worked for you. Like you flats :) You bag stood out in the ensemble :) Like reading your posts. Haven't read them all but your previous ones were nice reads :) Following you :)
