Stripes, Cargos, and Lemons

When life gives you lemons, what would you do?


I’ve had my fair share of lemons this year and frankly speaking, all that sourness and acidity seemed too much to bear at times.

Ever since the invention of social media, we’re bombarded by pretty photos of glamourous people on a minute-by-minute basis. So much so that I wonder whether life has ever thrown any curveballs at them. Of course it has.

I believe that everybody goes through different seasons in life, no matter who we are or what our background is. Surely some people may be more blessed by worldly standards than the others, what matters most at the end of the day is our attitude towards those uninvited lemons. We could either catch those juicy lemons and turn them into a tangy and delicious lemon syrup cake, or we could just bite straight into the wedges and contract a permanently scrunched up face.

After much pondering, I think I prefer the eating option.


On another note (this is a personal style blog after all), these cargo pants certainly brought back many fun memories. That shoot was one of the most carefree ones I’ve ever done with Mr M. The wind was crazy that day and that had enticed me to act a little whacky too! Oh believe it or not, I’ve had those nude heels for at least 3 years now and they had not been taken out for a ride before this shoot. They are uncomfortable but I’m adamant to stretch them out for Spring and Summer! (for the sake of my current motto)


Let’s rise up against the lemons people!

Have a nice rest of the week. Talk soon.
