Despite being a fashion and style lover, I’ve actually never really liked the quintessential Little Black Dress. Did you just gasp because of my style confession? To be honest I’ve always thought that the LBD is tad boring.
But I always keep an open my mind and I am more than ready to do new things to broaden my horizons. So here I am. When I saw this little black wrap dress with balloon sleeves I knew it cannot be turned town. Moral of this story: interesting details can really up the ante of any outfit.

I’ve added small dark pink earrings and bangles as well as blush pink statement necklace and rose gold heels for more pizzazz. A dash of red lipstick plus black kohl and you are ready to be a drama queen up for any theatrics.
Yes, I know summer and knits is an oxymoron for most us but if you are living in this part of the world, you would agree that summer is just a giant flash in the pan! It might be sunshine, cheer and a glass of Pimms for the rest of the world but for us it is mighty winds, perpetual rain and cold seeping our senses.
So, light knits are one of the most integral part of my summer wardrobe. Since I am a bit of rebel (mostly without any cause 😉 ), I refuse to let this dampen my spirits and have paired my trusty summer knit with a colourful little skirt.
I feel with so much greyness and dampness around me, colours can bring in some much needed cheer. I have chosen a knit with a broad boat neck and rolled up short sleeves because it enhances my curves nicely while the light-weight material doesn’t weigh me down allowing me to walk tall and proud.

Add some not-so-little accessories like statement earrings and a bold cuff and there’s my go-to uniform for days when the weather is confused about the season!!
