OOTD: White Summer Elegance

2tp_ootdjenny_03_0007 I’m so sorry there has been this lull and a silence from my side the past few weeks. As mentioned in previous posts, its year end which means its insanely busy… however to top things off, I got ridiculously sick and have been taking time out to recover and recuperate…I’m happy to say that I’m back on solids and starting to feel alot better. You have no idea how relieved and overjoyed I felt when I started feeling hungry again! Yup, appetite is BACK! :D

One of the other things that have kept me very occupied amidst all that is that I’ve been travelling and on the road alot the past few months…. Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Paris…collaborating, shooting, new projects and much more are on the horizon and we’re so excited for next year as there is MUCH that we want to share. How did this year just fly by right?? :D I’ve got ALOT of writing that I want to share once the year end settles down, and I’m really looking forward to that because it will share a lot of pieces I’ve done about love, relationships, self-worth, forgiveness, and more – I hope you will come back and visit when these pieces go up one by one as they will be there to encourage, inspire, and give hope through our amazing God :D

Anyhow, I can’t believe we are in that time of the year where the Christmas trees go up, all I see are mad crazy people all over the shops with a million and one paper bags hanging off their arms, and people are planning their christmas and new year parties! I hope you all have some lovely plans ahead :)

Now, to end, I’d love to share with you a REALLY simple ensemble that can be worn both day and at night, in spring and in summer, to the beach and a wedding and look equally as elegant. It is this floaty white maxi dress. I found it while I was fumbling the racks in Paris in Zara! I have always been very afraid of maxi dresses as I am only 5’5″ with my proportions longer in the torso and shorter in the legs – in summary, I look short :( However, I am a very determined person when it comes to trying styles in every way possible way before eliminating them, so when I finally figured out how to wear maxi dresses without them making me look stumpy, I was so thrilled! The trick is in the waistline ;) Yup, make sure the maxi has a waistline that sits a little higher or just add a thin simple belt that you can tie around your waist, so as to create shape, and the illusion of height. And it helps if the maxi dress is a single colour (or at least single colour lengthways) so that you look taller :)

Anyhow, when I saw this maxi, I knew it would be perfect for something I could wear on a date, to the beach/around a resort, to even to a wedding (provided it is white friendly – some really are! haha I’ve shot some to prove it :D ). I love it because the back detail was really flattering with the X, the material is so light, and it was in my favourite v-neck neckline :) To accesorise, I decided to glam it up so I paired it with a clutch that was handmade for Paris Fashion Week (Jillian and I found it in Paris in the vintage markets and got this amazing price for it!), and some simple black heels. If you want to wear it casually, just wear it with a pair of simple neutral coloured flat sandals, tie your hair up in a loose bun, or wear a white summer hat :D

OOTD: Keeping it Classic


It’s been so busy on our end lately… Jillian has been up to her eyeballs in assignments, and I am running in circles literally chasing deadlines, while flying in between cities every few days for shoots and being on location. There are some moments I catch myself not having taken a breath for a few seconds, and that is where I need to pause, slow down, and calm myself so as not to be completely overwhelmed by it all. Spring is such a beautiful season, but wow it can get crazy! I was just thinking to myself that if I could just have 2 weeks in one place, that would be SUCH a gift! Until then, I’m hanging on until Christmas where it will be all about spending time with my husband, being with family, hanging out with friends, and just living :) I’m truly looking forward to it!

In the meantime, I’d love to share with you all an ensemble I love going to, when I feel stuck on what to wear – thats right, denim and a white top. When all else fails, and you are having some major style crisis, or just downright do not have the time to pull anything fancy together, you can never go wrong with a pair of great fitted jeans, and a white top.

I mean, since James Dean mastered the look all the way back in the 1940’s, the look never really has gone away. It has become somewhat of a style staple – which I love, because it is so simple, understated, yet classy. It can be dressed down for a total casual look, or dressed up with statement necklaces, blazers, or killer heels for a look that is fitting for a night out with friends or a date. For my take on this look, I have gone somewhere in between the totally casual and glam, which only further proves to you just how versatile this ensemble can be. What I did was I put together a pair of dark denim skinny jeans that I scored for $7 from Primark (the story is, I forgot to pack pants to London on one trip – I know, ‘IDIOT alert’ haha,  as I thought travelling there at the end of May meant summer weather. Little did I know it actually meant rain, wind, and just freezing your butt off haha, so I had to find a last minute pair of pants that would shield me from the weather since I had to shoot every day, but I also wasn’t willing to fork out tonnes of money on a new pair of jeans as I already owned so many. Ironically, this pair has turned out to be the MOST worn pair of pants in my entire wardrobe since! So lesson is, never underestimate a piece of clothing just because it is cheap! :D ) with a floaty white blouse from Zara.

As usual, I opt for a v-neck blouse whenever I can, as it creates a slimmer illusion, and with this floaty fabric, I loved that it covered my arms while remaining comfortable (yup, my arms are one area I do not like about my body so I have learned ways to disguise them to look more slim), and because I have a long torso and shorter legs (can you believe out of all the siblings in my family, I am the one blessed with the shortest pins haha!) I usually like tucking in my tops so that it gives the illusion that you have longer legs – pair that with a good pair of heels and we’re set! This look features a pair of white minimalist heels (I know everyone is into black, but its spring so look for brighter fresher palettes girls! :D ) from Windsor Smith :) Now that it is spring and weather is warmer, it invites the appearance of more and more opened toe shoes, so don’t forget to paint your nails, ladies, whether you do it yourself or head to your favourite nail bar for it :)

This look can go with any sort of white top to be honest – I’ve worn these jeans (darker denim is very flattering as it slims the legs to the naked eye) with white tank tops, white camis, white halter necks, white sweaters, white cardigans, white lace tops, and so on and so forth – haha, if there is anything in my wardrobe I am always open to adding to, it is a white top of some form – get it in a flattering cut/shape for your body and it will remain timeless in your closet for decades I promise! :D

Lastly, but definitely not least, a HUGE thanks to my wonderful friends and colleagues below for helping me on this shoot. There’s no way this could have happened without the generosity of your time and talents :)

OOTD: Gardens, Lace and Spring


I really love spring. The weather warms up, we get to wear floaty skirts, opened toe shoes without freezing our feet off, and it’s time to put away all the coats, boots, scarves and heavy clothing with duller palettes, while swapping it for bright and cheerful colors.

I have always loved wearing pencil skirts – I think it makes ladies look really elegant and classy, and when I spotted this piece from Zara in white lace, I knew it was something I had to have in my wardrobe. White is super versatile and lace is something that forever remains timeless through all the fads and trends that the fashion world seems to churn out.

I decided to pair it with an emerald green v-neck blouse, also from Zara. Green is a surprisingly GORGEOUS color! I’m really sad that people don’t wear it more often. I think girls are under the impression that it is a color that is not versatile, bad for the skin tone, and generally boring. But ladies, it is all about the cut and the actual SHADE of green. This particular tone (emerald green) looks AMAZING on pale skin tones, olive skin tones, asians, etc. And goes well with black, white and gold! How much more versatile can one get? :D I dare all of you to try an emerald green piece over this spring – whether it is in a beautiful midi skirt, or a top. Get the right shade, and wear it in a cut that flatters your body, and you are all set! I chose a v-neck blouse because it is slimming on girls who are slightly more top heavy (yup, i cannot wear round neck or high neck blouses as I end up looking really fat or stumpy since it hides more of my neck and shoulder area) or want to hide your arms :)

Hope you enjoy this outfit of the day post! :)

OOTD: Black & Blue


Typical me. Wearing black on black on black. I’m not usually a colour person. I don’t opt wearing colours, just because I feel more comfortable in grey scale tones. However, I recently scored myself these beautiful Zara heels that I couldn’t take my eyes off! Continue reading

 These electric blue heels was really my first step to embracing a more colourful wardrobe palette (Still working on it though!). And that Valentino clutch! It’s to die for! I think this look would be great for a night out with a bunch of friends, a dinner or even a party.
