20 March officially marks the first day of Spring and I celebrated the new season with tons of Spring cleaning back at our home in Singapore. Our 17 boxes have finally arrived! Clothes, toiletries and knick knacks of all sorts were strewn all over the room. I spent the entire day clearing it and boy was I tired by 5pm but felt a sense of achievement having organised part of my accessories compartment.
Here are some tips that I’d like to share:
Instead of trashing the boxes, I sometimes like to keep them for you’ll never know when they may end up being useful. These boxes most certainly came in handy in this case to help organise the belts in my drawer.
I also like displaying my accessories for it’s easy to forget my inventory if they are stored in the dust-bag. Displaying the pieces helps me to see what I have at a glance and play around with mixing and matching them for my outfit for the day.
When we were living in Geneva, I ended up buying loads of vintage plates and small cake stands to aid me in my food styling. Instead of chucking them aside in some corner of my kitchen and end up forgetting that they even exist, I decided to turn them into jewellery holders instead. What do you think? I think it’s pretty neat and helps keep my little items all organised. Plus if I ever need to use them to display food again, it will always be within reach.
Lastly, in honour of Spring, I decided to don on this ‘In-your-face’ floral printed pants that I recently purchased from H&M. Fashion catwalks around the world are clearly fixated on this trend and at CHF 24.90 (I found out its retailing for SG 24.90), it couldn’t hurt the pocket that much to jump on the floral printed bandwagon. At first, I was a kinda worried that it might be a little too glaring for daily wear but when paired with a simple black studded chiffon top from Zara, the entire outfit worked for an afternoon about town to catch up with pals.
What do you think? Yay or Nay to this trend?
