As the date signalling my imminent move draws near, I’m possessed with the urgencyÂ to take more outfit photos aroundÂ my neighbourhood.Â I’ve called this place home for the past 23 years, but the time has called for a bittersweet departure from the life I’ve grown so comfortable with. I’m going to be renting a smaller place in an entirely different neighbourhood for a year, and we’ll see how it goes from there. It’s exciting to be living in a different part of the country soon, but it’s also sad to leave this neighbourhood and all its green spaces behind.
Before, I’d frequentlyÂ put off taking photos here since there’d always be people playing street soccer or using the outdoor fitness stations nearby. But seeing as it’s my last couple of weeksÂ in this area,Â here I came. The new neighbourhood I’m about to move to doesn’t have as many trees, though they sport a number of murals. Perhaps my penchant for the colour green came about by these surroundings?
Nevertheless, my outfit features a recently-acquired DressLink crop top and an unbranded pleated skirt I got a decade ago. This skirt has stayed with me for so many years for good reason – the texture is just too unique to throw it out! It’s stayed despite getting stained during art school. I guess it helps that it’s so durable.
This woven Nica clutch is in my discard pile for the move. I got it at Ross Dress for Less back in LA, butÂ it didn’t exactly survive the sudden shift into Singapore’s weather. I’ll miss the Koi fish print on the inside of this bag.
