Going Neutrals

How to wear neutral colors?My favourite colour is red not just any red but rich and deep red just like what I wore on my previous post. It's not only because I'm attracted to it but I get more compliments when I wear this colour, see my Instagram for the comments haha. But now I know why and it's because I look better in warm tones as opposed to cool as my veins appear to be more green than blue. And that makes me belong to the warm colour family. So I would aim for rich reds, browns, rust, and the warm neutrals like camel, beige and ivory.
How to wear nude colors?
In this post, I was wearing camel knitted dress, beige Chanel bag and taupe cut-out ankle boots. I know, they all look the same to me too :) That's why I needed the glasses to determine each colour, just kidding. I hope I don't appear washed out wearing all these neutrals but according to my colour family I should be safe with them :)

I mentioned in my previous post that I would wear another lace dress for our anniversary lunch but hubby didn't approve of it since it's too revealing for a daytime event. He's my photographer so he's the boss and I ended up wearing this camel frilly jumper dress instead. But after lunch, we took some photos with the black lace dress just for a spin in the nearby park so hopefully I will be blogging about it in the next post.

And who would have thought I will be wearing a clear sunglasses just because it's now in trend. I'm supposed to wear my graded eyeglasses especially when driving but I shied away because I didn't want to look more mature. On the contrary, I'm now wearing a fake one for me to look cute, I'm now a slave of fashion :(

I've included photos in the café with the food and my almost 3 year-old toddler. Isn't he cute, just like me he likes hot chocolate. The food was really good especially the presentation although my flatlay doesn't look appetising, blame it on the boys as they were in a hurry to eat. I know, I will never be a food blogger because of them haha.

I'm wishing you a happy Easter and hoping that you get to spend it with family and loved ones.

  20. You look very classy wearing this dress, Mercy. I really like the camel color. I never looked good wearing beige, tan, or neutrals, but it suits you. What a sweet picture of your little one enjoying his hot chocolate. It looks so Yummy. Your husband takes great pictures, Mercy.

    Wishing you and your family a Happy Easter.

  22. Just like you I belong to the warm family, but neutrals do wash me out. Must be my light hair and complexion. And yes, taking food pictures with the hungry family around is impossible.

  39. My favorite color, after pink, is red eheheh...I think is sensual and very feminine,as well as being the color of love and passion!Anyway I think that nude color is a good choice for some kind of outfits and occasions....especially for work(together with black and white)....it's ideal for being siple and chic,in a natural way!
    P.S. Your bag is wonderful!!!!
