What To Wear For Fall When It’s Hot Out

November 6, 2016



While the Fall season is nowhere near the Kei Kecil Islands, I am trying to infuse my outfits with a hint of Autumn vibes. Adding a velvet fabric and a leopard print to an otherwise summer look instantly changes it into something more Fall appropriate than wearing colorful pom poms and crochet dresses don’t you think?



I absolutely adore the combination of the color burgundy with a leopard print. It makes the leopard print less trashy and more cool and sophisticated right? I added a rock & roll tee and the Brooklyn Camera bag by Michael Kors from their newest collection for an instant edge. Of course, I had to keep it all a bit Summer proof by wearing my new ballerina lace up espadrilles I scored on sale at H&M just before we left from Amsterdam



A cool tee with a the name of an eighties hardrock band has been the “new cool” for some time now. Although I totally love this trend, I never knew which band to pick lol when grabbing a tee like this. Singer Lemmy Kilmister from eighties band Motorhead was a dear friend of mine. We used to hang out all the time when I still lived in L.A. a few years ago. I was in shock when Lemmy passed away last year.When I bumped into this tee at H&M a few weeks ago, I knew I had to get it, just to honor his legacy.   He will be forever cool right?


My guy, Emiel picked  up my new favorite bag at the Michael Kors store a few weeks ago. I am totally loving the thick belt shoulder strap. It adds a rock & roll vibe to basically every type of outfit. It’s super easy to pair with everything and that’s of course always a winner for me!

I was wearing:

MotorHead Tee: H&M
Espadrilles: H&M
Brooklyn Camera Bag: Michael Kors AW 16 here


In the meantime, Emiel and I are finally getting a little accustomed to the hot temperatures here on the island. I still have to get used to the millions of bugs and the continues power outings, but I am not complaining. We are very comfortable and staying right at the ocean at Emiel’s grandfathers fabulous guest house. It is super nice here. The gorgeous surroundings make it so easy to shoot outfit photos. We have shot tons already, so stay tuned for more coming up everyone. I am off for dinner now and after that we’re going for live music on Pasir Panjang Beach. I can’t wait. I will keep you guys posted.
