Sea-sick and nowhere to call home

Outfit: Anchor print blouse, Tortoise sunnies, Taobao, White faux leather shorts, Oakham Market, Weaved summer flats, Online store, Vintage watch and bag.

Went to Vivocity with Mr Penguin *counts back the days* on Friday! Watched Dark Shadows which was a macabre yet funny movie that has a weird plot (to me) but we were in awe of Johnny Depp's versatility. And his numerous collaborations with Tim Burton who has a penchant for making spooky (but not scary horror ones) movies. My favourite of his is Corpse Bride!


What I wore that day. Just received my chains and anchors print top from Taobao (again) and I bought it in black as well but I always prefer the lighter colours over the darker ones. Did not really put on my shades so it was more of a decoration and my $10 vintage watch, isn't it pretty? Haven't used this bag since forever but finally found an occassion and outfit to. My mum gave it to me a few years back, I really love the material and the sturdiness of the bag.


Mr Penguin and his monorail, lol.


Enjoying the gorgeous sunset with the Star Cruise and cable cars in the foreground and the sea-breeze, which I really love because sometimes you can forget your troubles and life a little while, and embrace the cooling and alluring lure of the sea.

And... I just got back from my 10km run. I ran like I never ran before but I still managed to run consistently for 5km and stopped at the halfway point and began walking/brisk-walking/panting. I think I have a phobia for marathons now.

  52. really lovely blog post, darling. i love your outfit so much. the colors are great and that blouse is awesome. i really want to see dark shadows myself, glad to hear that it was good! i can't say i am a huge johnny depp fan, but i do think he is an amazing actor and to be honest when i saw the preview in the theater for the first time, i did not even realize it was him! so you are right he is definitely super versatile. beautiful photos as well and what lovely sky. great that you did some exercise as well! i myself am too lazy but i really should change that. anyway, i really love your blog so i am following now. i hope you pop by my blog if you have a moment. i really think you will like it: http://www.loveforschoolgirl.net/ and i would love if you could follow back. can't wait to read your next post, love!
