The joys of Spring
What brings us more joy than spring and summer?
One might argue that technically, Malaysia is summer all year round so there’s certainly nothing to be joyful about what with this heatwave making us sweat the minute we exit our showers. But the stores dictate that there are four seasons a year, dressing their windows with plush velvet and sequins in “winter” and skimpy neon tank tops in the “summer” , regardless whether or not we are in a tropical country smack near the equator.
So when spring and summer does come around – in the stores that is- we rejoice, because finally we get to buy clothes that we could actually wear.
Here are a few lovely looks that we have found which screams spring of ’13 to us
Aimee Song of style blog Song of Style in a lovely palm print short suit and gorgeous loafers. This look is VERY adaptable and printed shorts are everywhere in stores now.
Chriselle Lim of style blog The Chriselle Factor in another spring summer ’13 trend, a pair of overalls (trend possibly sparked by onesie wearing Cara Delevinge) and a neon bikini top. This look might get you stares from rempits and flabbergasted older men in our more conservative nation but wear a simple soft white t-shirt in place of the bikini and you’ll blend right in. Unless of course, you prefer the latter.
Gorgeous Diane Kruger and her beau Joshua Jackson. I put this in to remind us that sometimes, a simple shorts and T accompanied by great hair and flawless skin & make up will make you stand out more than an elaborate outfit could.
