Black and White

We are now officially in autumn but the heat still stings the skin, the weather forecast by next week is that the mercury will drop and we’ll start feeling cool breeze. Anyway, I’m not in a hurry to wrap myself yet, I’m loving the sunshine and the full bloom of flowers which got me to wear this bodycon number in black and white.

I like the geometric pattern of this dress and the snug fit. Black and white outfits are something I really want to add in my wardrobe especially during warm weather. Nothing gives a fresh clean feel and look than this colour combo.

One of the long lasting flowers I noticed for years now is these tubular blooms in shades of blue to purple or white. They are called sparklers because of their iridescent colour that cools the garden. Apparently, these flowers have longer life. Before I left for my 3-week visit to the Philippines they were already there. I felt bad that I didn’t get to snap photos of them, boy was I surprised when I got back they were still standing proudly amidst the heat of the sun. Oh and the name is not really easy to remember but I will leave it ‘til the end of this paragraph so it will get stored in your memory easily, lo and behold it’s called Agapanthus.

And this lavender patch is my all-time favourite backdrop. These little flowers are hardy and long-lived that's why I always get tempted to stop when I drive past as they are always there with their lavender beauty.
  This signature Oroton black tote is a staple arm dangler if you love this Australian bag brand. I decided to use this bag one day after neglecting if for quite some time and I was glad it went well with the black and white theme I sported on that day.

Last but not least to mention is my Prada platform sandals which is made of patent leather and is very sturdy.  I love platforms as it elevates me to higher ground :) 

So that’s all for my flower report and my black and white ensemble :) ‘Til next fashion outfit and flowering post.
