It's been a while since I last touched this blog but with moving to a new city, starting a new job and filling any spare time with freelance writing work, there hasn't been much time to dedicate to this little space on the web. 

Truth be told, I've also been re-evaluating what I want to do with this blog and where I see my content going. At one point, I thought of scrapping the whole thing altogether and creating a new site based on other topics, but then, I still do like that old-school outfit sharing on blogs - and with Instagram's headache-inducing algorithm, I'm starting to see the value in having my own space that I can control (well, let's be real, that Google can control). 

So the outfit posts here will continue and I may create another online mag-style site, but that's still very much in the ideas phase. 

For now, here's what I've been wearing lately. Unsurprisingly, it involves a lot of black - something I haven't been able to shake off (and won't) since arriving in a hot and sunny climate. The trick to avoiding overheating in dark colours, I've found, is sticking to loose fits and pieces that let the air in. Take the outfit above - loose pants, a loose top and a cut-out detail that doubles as a handy entry point for any welcome breezes.

And then there's this outfit - yes, the skirt is fitted around the waist, but that loose wrap style is an absolute god send when it comes to preventing sweaty-thigh syndrome when the temperature cranks up.
