I recently collaborated with an Instagrammer Ray @skinnyjeansandcoffee – and as you can pretty much guess it, the photos are based on the concepts of his personal interests: skinny jeans and coffee. I took this chance to style this pair of Joni skinnys (I first wrote about them here) and explore the alleys of Tanjong Pagar.
Instead of wearing a tucked in top, I went with this Nocturne top from shopatvelvet. I’m a lover of side slits because it adds a unpredictable element, and coupled with the comfortable crepe material of the top it made the entire top look sleek and chic.
The optional tie at the back is one of my favourite details, because it’s kind of half-hidden and it allows you to choose how you want the top to frame your body. I don’t deny the fact that unless you’re really thin, tying the top really tight just balloons up your torso and makes you look really fat. Since I don’t have a model figure, I usually go with a loose tie to give my outfit a straight-cut look, which adds onto the clean and minimal vibes.
I went with skinnys, Nike air-max and a cap to tweak the vibes a little and give it a more casual look. I love how the slit allows you to have a glimpse of the vintage blue from the jeans. It is one of my most comfortable outfits thus far and though hot and tiring, it was still pretty fun exploring Tanjong Pagar and having a photoshoot there. I figured that since most local instagrammers have explored these places and took those looking-step-in-the-Tanjong-Pagar-alleys photos, I would try some myself hahaha and I think it turned out pretty okay.
I popped by Drury Lane for a cup of coffee before having the shoot and ever since I’m separated from my coffee machine (which is in my campus hall room) I feel so ridiculously deprived of caffeine. All in all it was a fun time doing this shoot and actually I was just really happy that I got some coffee teehee.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post and I’ll love to hear from you what you think about this outfit ✌🏻
