Color Coordinated

Berry: Gingersnaps top from Aunt Ingrid, Baby Gap jeans, Salt-water sandals
Me: shirt from Uniqlo, Topshop trousers, adult Salt-Water sandals, FEED bag

Berry dresses herself now, she chooses her own outfits. And she wears them on her own, she refuses to let us help dress her up. She reminds me of Henry Kravis, the private equity guy who made his niche in leveraged buyouts. In an interview he shares that his mom's recollection of him as a kid was that he wanted to tie his shoes when he didn't even know how to tie his shoes. But he had to do it himself.

That's Berry. But her motor skills are so refined now that she can even put a belt on or buckle her sandals by herself. Very independent.

Anyway, just wanted to share with you our Sunday outfit. I actually took my cue from Berry when I saw that her red sandals looked cute with her blue top. Berry is my icon. Incidentally, I just had to also say I love my Salt-Water sandals. Its been raining here everyday and they're the perfect pair to wear because I don't have to worry about my sandals getting wet. My friends here in Singapore, like Janie, Sara and Vicky all love their Salt-Waters too! I really think these sandals are a winner.

UPDATE: Will keep you posted on which stores to buy adult Salt-Water sandals in Singapore! For now you may email to place an order! =)

PS - Thanks to all the readers who left comments in my "controversial" post. I have read and published each and every one's. I really appreciate all the support and I am sorry if I have disappointed some of you. It is not in my character to be arrogant or mayabang, and if I came across as such, my fault lies in not being able to write my thoughts out well and explain it within context as my words have been subject to misinterpretation. Well, hopefully I get to meet some of you to know me well enough that I am not like that.

Cutiepatootie! I'm such a huge fan of Saltwaters too! Wore them all summer in London and almost every week to work(preschool teacher). You both look sweet.

Mom-Friday: I get mine in Moana, Power Plant. Hope that helps. :)

Hi Tin!!!! Remember: "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." I've read enough of your posts to know you didn't write that piece with ill intentions :)

Anyway, you and Berry look super cute in your reds and blues! :D Ako naman, I'm hoping umulan on Wednesday para ma-test ko ang sandals ko! Yun talaga ang purpose nya sa buhay ko eh -- a bit more dressy than flip-flops na pang-ulan! :D

Btw, kinilig ako when I read my name!!!! Hahahahahaha! Sorry, babaw to the max! Hope to see you around! ^_^

Hi! By any chance would you know where i can get saltwater sandals in HK? Im guessing it would be cheaper there than here in MLA. We'll be going there for a trip soon. Love your matchy matchy outfit:) i do that with my daughter too.

Thanks ladies! And Dani, thanks for the tip on Moana!

Hi Mahaderang Frog! I am not sure if Salt-Waters are available in HK, so far they are only available in Australia, the UK, Singapore and The Phils outside the US. The US is still the place to get it the cheapest. Maybe you can check out Moana as Dani suggested?

Vicky! Have you worn your Salt-Waters in rain yet? Hehehe!
