Anja was back in town so it was time to catch up over lunch.

Of course I had followed all her India adventures closely on her blog (and learned a lot about India in the process) but nothing beats face to face time. As always we took the opportunity to take some pictures as well.

red white brown outfit

Looking back at these pictures I actually really like my outfit. I love the colour combination of white, red and brown and my animal print belt brings all those colours together.

Inspired by my articles on pretty nails and how to care for your nails, I made a bit of an effort myself and had green toe nails. An extra 4th colour for some extra fun. Although I had my finger nails in that colour as well, some of the polish had chipped off so I had already gone back to natural nails for my hands.

red shoes

An A-skirt always suits me well and I also love the graphical element of this outfit. Red is a new favorite colour so it was only natural that I kept looking at this colour for some new sunglasses I wanted to buy.

Although bright red suits me better, I felt that would be too much for sunglasses. Instead I opted for a more burgundy red and bought these Burberry sunglasses.

The top is a recent find from Mango. It was love at first sight and I was lucky to get one of the last pieces in the store. Although it has sleeves, the material is very thin, so it’s still cool and airy for the Singapore climate.

red tote bag

The red tote bag (of which I cannot find a brand) was obtained in The Netherlands and is the perfect accessory to this outfit, together with my comfortable red shoes.

Top: Mango (search for two-tone light top
