Soul to Soul


A lazy feeling sweeps over me as I listen to some jazz and country soul. Sometimes don't you wish you could sing flawlessly without straining your vocal chords? I've always dreamed of performing solos with a voice like Adele's, Regina Spektor's or even the Japanese singer, Yui for that matter. 
*Sigh* 
Big big dreams, I'd say. Life was much easier when we were kids. We thought the death of a puppy was the worst thing that could ever happen to us. And look at us now. Bad-hair days, assignments, university exams, internships, health, money, and every other thing that keeps our mind pre-occupied.
*Double sigh* 
Also, I haven't read a good book in ages. All I read are text books about economics, law and accounts. I miss my Paulo Coelhos and Jeffrey Archers. I need to discover some new authors too. Browsing through fashion blogs and shopping sites are most time consuming and I can't seem to get over it. It's time for a detox. A 'fashion/shopping detox' rather. 
But for now, it's another outfit post. Took these when I had gone to watch Anand Bhushan's show which was followed by Gaurav & Ritika, and Koga by Jenjum & Jasleen. Thanks to Linno of UNNAMED for the the passes although she couldn't make it for the show. I didn't really take a lot of photos because I had to rush back to attend my class... Oh, exams!

[ASOS maxi skirt and shoes, thrifted top, Forever New clutch, F21 Ear-rings]

I seem to be over indulging in maxis. And it's not over yet. You'll find me wearing it all throughout this season. No jeans for me; they're too warm and sticky. Shorts are lovely, but sometimes people over here stare too much. Hence, the maxis have topped my list this season. 

Give Adele's 'Someone Like You' a listen and you'll surely feel like listening to more of what her voice has to offer!




Tell me, what's the most recent book you've read?

  1. The maxi skirt is so simple, but something about the subtle gather on the side and the open slit makes it so much more beautiful.

  6. You look sooo good in these photos! My favorite is the second one of you laughing.
    I haven't read a good book in a long time either. Heck, I don't even read my textbooks even though I'm supposed to, but last summer, I read some good George Orwell books such as Animal Farm.
