A Cheerful Garden of My Own

This outfit pictures were from somewhere in February, when it had been raining like crazy for days. The sky was gloomy and overcast, grey and cloudy and not very happy looking. So I decided to bring my own flower garden to work, which was this blouse that I got in Singapore! (Read my Singapore and Penang haul post here)

Flower blouse: Claudine (Bugis Junction, Singapore) - it's a sheer blouse, I wore a black tank underneath. Pleats skirt: unbranded (if you live in Jakarta, you can get it at basically any ITC wholesale malls). Bag: Les Catino. Bracelets: old collection. Earrings: Chinatown, Singapore. Shoes: Yongki Komaladi. Pink cardi: Marks & Spencer.

It was freezing cold in the office, so I layered with this pink wool Marks & Spencer cardigan. It was one the best buys ever: pretty, pink, light, not scratchy at all, snug, warm, well fitted, and was on sale!

I had a pair of similar colorful rhinestone earrrings that I bought in the Philippines, but then I lost them. So I'm so happy that now I've got these!


I even brought my own blue sky and butterfly. Haha!
A little butterfly charm works wonder to put a smile on people's faces. The girls love this charm!
This is also one of the little keychains I got in my Singapore haul.

Aaaand, oh-watta-appy-day, my button necklace outfit got featured by the g*rated girls - Marie, Chelsea and Buff - of the g*rated blog. The three ladies are mother and daughters who blog together to share what they love on the internet. How sweet is that! The feature is on their Sunday Best, a link party of your best dressed-up look of the week, which I think is a good idea, since dressing up is not so common these days, with all the casual and sportswear around. I mean, who doesn't love to be comfortable, but there are times and places when you want, you need, to look dressed up. For the feature, please click here. For the button necklace post, please go here. Don't forget to join in their Sunday Best link party, as well.
Thank you Marie, Chelsea and Ms. Buff, for featuring my post!

Hey girl!

Kids are definitely a handful yup. I think I'll space them ;)
About Brazil: I didn't know it was like that in Jogja. Thanks for telling me :) You make a good point. It all depends on the cultural festival too. Yes, I don't think we should lose tradition or become soo westernized as they say. I mean God had a reason and knows why he you Asian and I African :)If he wanted us to be English, we would've been born in Britain.
Very, very true. It's duffferent if you celebrate sorcery LOL. Oh it's fine! I'm not sure about the topic too. I may have facts and maybe opinions but I'm learning!
I miss reading your posts too. Last semester in school so yeah.
I've read it cover to cover once but it took me three years LOL. I think I'll do it again in the future but with someone. It's easier and not daunting. I would abandon it too. I did that this year LOL. OK we'll try to read it more regularly then. Thanks for that. Glad I have a friend with similar intent too. Just so you know, if I ever leave blogosphere, I'll give my email address to be in touch :) Not leaving anytime soon though. Just busy that's all LOL

Congrats on being featured in the button necklace! I adored not only the necklace but how YOU chose the perfect outfit to wear with it. I'm loving this outfit too. My favorite piece is the pink cardigan. It really dresses the outfit up and makes it perfect for the office. I saw your post over at the link party at "Two Thirty Five Design".
