It’s fall for many of you but as you may know I’m in hot weather most of the year. For Singapore, the less you wear and the looser the garment, the cooler you will be.

This dress (similar here), therefore, is perfect for the climate I live in.

I love to wear light gray but it’s not really the best color for my complexion so I need to add some color to the look.

Accessories to the rescue!

First there is this necklace with colorful wooden pieces.

Then there is the fuchsia, black bag. I’m wearing it the wrong way around on this image as for this dress it’s best if the fuchsia side is shown.

This beautiful colorful bracelet (a gift from the creative Suzanne Carillo) adds to the colorful mix.

My colorful glasses are perfect for outdoor.

And of course some fuchsia lips help as well!

Last but not least there are the shoes. These beauties from United Nude are the perfect finish!
