I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Wearing: V-neck wool cardigan – Gap. Cord leggings trousersGap. Dress – Stylenanda. Hat – Hoss Intropia. Bag – L.K.Bennett. Rose-gold watch – Guess. Leather knot bracelet – COS (similar). Boots – Zara. Cashmere scarf – Johnstons of Elgin. Thank you Kit for the outfit snaps!

I love days like this, when one very early morning meeting brings you to the other end of town and you end up spending the day in a very foreign surrounding. You poke at the Twittersphere for some recommendations in the area and ask whether or not they use a different currency/language here, and BAM you land a breakfast date with a friend you never see because, well, she lives at the bloody other end of town. The next thing you know, you’re digging through a mountain of bacon and the smell of it all invites a friendly pooch to sit at your feet, who you eventually end up naming ‘Bacon’. We still don’t know who its owner was and where it came from… although we’re pretty sure its real name is either Bacon, or Bread, or Tuna sandwich, considering that it pootled over to the next table once he saw no more bacon on my chin. And we thought it loved us.

Also, wearing what is probably the most comfortable outfit ever. I mean, cords and a chunky cardigan… it’s like my mother dressed me. Or my father, actually, come to think of it. All with a tiered dress-thing that actually very effectively covers up the junk in the trunk, and boots so comfortable I can jog in. This is the first of a little style series I’m doing with Gap and a couple of their knitwear/cord classics for the Styld.by platform. Make sure to check back for more of what I’m sure will be comfortable outfits championing the Park family genome, aka Pyjama family.

  24. Kristen

  25. I suddenly find myself craving bacon at 9:46pm… or, like a brownie with bacon on top? Geez.
    I love the look of cords and a chunky cardigan. Looks like I have to browse through Gap’s selection!


  26. Loving your look…and LOVING that pink coat.



  27. Fantastic photos! Love the bag!


  28. You live the charmed London life. I love that you and Kit always work together.

  29. How I love the smell of bacon! I love to eat bacon with cheese sandwich too. Your outfit looks good at you! The kitten and the dog is so cute. That was indeed a free and beautiful day for you!

  30. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful pictures. I love your grey boots.
    Regards from the sunny Spain,

  31. your outfit seems very comfortable Shini! I love the boots and the cardigan combination, for boots tho I’m sure they won’t look good on me as it does on you. You have a perfect allure with very high heels.

  32. Those are the best type of days! x

  33. Love the outfit- particularly love the cat I have to say. Is she yours or just being friendly?

  34. The pictures are always so lovely.

  35. These pictures are wonderful!

    Hi Shini, I love these boots. We don’t have a Zara in Michigan, can you tell me how they fit? Did you order up/down from your usual size? Though, I actually have no idea what my “usual size” even is.. Thank you!

  40. I’m a UK5.5 (which is…I’m not sure, an US8, or 7.5? I’m a half-size for sure) So I always buy UK6 for boots keeping in mind I may wear thick socks in the winter – they fit perfectly and comfortably! SLIGHTLY loose but not at all noticeable when walking – I guess that means it runs true to size ;) Hope that helped!

  41. Great boots and brunch? What isn’t there to love?

  42. ayy_ayy

    Looks like your outfit is pretty comfortable.
    And that cat is too cute to be not to touch! :)

  43. Love your boots!


  44. Can’t wait to be in London for a couple of weeks to eat eggs&bacon in the morning! Btw I love the super long white top that you’re wearing!

  54. […]  sources: 01 / 02 / 03 /  04 / 05 / 06 / 07 Although not as controversial as Birkenstocks, Pale pink is having her 15 minutes right now which is quite a nice surprise for the dark colors this fall.  (I have a good feeling that it will stick around through next fall, too. So as your financial advisor, I feel like this is a good investment for your closet.) Now I’m a pink girl, but I feel like this shade of pink can be polarizing though — you either love to wear it or hate to wear it. Maybe it’s too girly for some but paired with grey, white, and black it’s just a darn pretty combo. Black adds edge, white makes it classic, and grey keeps it casual. I was also thinking plum and pink would be a good pairing or pale pink and deep navy. Do what you will but I think pale pink should be on your radar. It lets you be a rebel in the most subtle, sweetest way possible; like you’re saying ‘pale pink for fall, just who is going to stop me?’ See? The sweetest rebel on the block.   _________________________________ / SHOP THE LOOK / […]
