Every time Christmas comes around, I love getting in the spirit by doing a festive manicure. Despite jet lag, this year was no Photo 29-12-14 10 47 12 amexception. I painted a dark red base (regent street by Nails Inc) for my left hand and dark green for my right. Urban Decay really has the best glitter coats, so I did two nails with glitter on top (breaking my no gold and silver together rule, but it’s Christmas so who cares:)) I did candy cane silver stripes on my pinky nail with a toothpick, dotting the lines and joining them together. On my thumb nail I drew some silver stars, also with a toothpick and finally I drew a little snowman on my last nail, which was my personal favourite. I drew on a little carrot nose using OPI’s ‘where did Suzi’s man-go’ and again with a toothpick dotted on some snow above.

Unexpected

Unexpected 4So everyone who knows me knows that I’m not a t-shirt and jeans girl. I’m just not. Do I think it can look good? Definitely; some of the most fashionable people in the industry pull it off effortlessly day after day – it has a very model-off-duty vibe to it. But it’s just not my style.

    Unexpected 3 Unexpected 2 Unexpected 1So this outfit probably comes as a surprise to some. It’s a simple white graphic tee with jeans; ripped jeans no less. And can I just say that the jeans are amazing. From Abercrombie and Fitch, they really hug you in all the right places. The t-shirt is Billabong, from the boys section; taking the phrase “borrowed from the boys” a little too literally if you ask me. But hey, I was coerced into (to put it nicely) buying it at Wavehouse Sentosa before I could go on the FlowBarrel, so I figured I might as well put it to good use.

I still needed some ‘me’ in the outfit, so I chose olive green military inspired suede wedges, a bright orange Tory Burch handbag, a thin blue and gold Marc Jacobs bangle and a swipe of dark pink lip gloss. Just the right amount of femininity to counter the guyishness of the rest of the outfit and make it look thought-out instead of carelessly thrown on. It was refreshing switching up my style like that.

Try it sometime;)
