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.

I was browsing through the stack of bloggable files just now and found these photos I’d done with Susan IN FEBRUARY. Why am I posting these in May, and not waiting a few months until the season becomes more relevant? I thought it was rather ironic – these photos were done after a deadly all-nighter for yet another deadline (Feb 8), and can you see, the exhaustion and fatigue is so tattooed in the entire mood and I thought SO accurately represented what I felt yesterday after that final hand-in. To think that was my last ever hand-in as a BA student. I won’t miss it much, to be frank.

Please consider this winter post a parting gift to the wretched cold season I would not like to see again until November at the earliest.

  1. love how you layer your clothes and those boots are quite fabulous.

    clothes are cute
    clothes are cute

  2. love the mix of prints and textures :)

  3. I happily kiss winter goodbye. UNTIL I see outfits like this that make me wish that the weather permitted me to dress this cute, with all the layers and whatnot. But, honestly, I never look that cute in winter. At all. And my feet are always so cold. And heating in this old house costs a fortune. And walking a mile to class sucks.

    Well, now that I think about it more realistically, good riddance, winter. Good riddance.

  4. Forgot to mention: Love those tights.

  5. Before reading the text I was thinking “isn’t it a bit warm to be dressing like this?”, good to know you aren’t a crazy person wearing gloves and thick layers when it’s like Summer outside! I love this outfit but I haven’t experienced enough warm weather yet to want it to be Winter again, I totally get the exhausted mood here though. Congrats on your final hand-in!

  6. Love your printed poncho pullover and your boots!!

  7. Shini, these photos are amazing- very 화보 like! You look so beautiful- ! ^^

  20. these photos are beautiful. it’s kind of got a mongolian feel. was wondering why you had on so many layers when i came to the post… was thinking surely it hasn’t gotten that cold in london already! so glad to hear your done shini. now it’s time for more play dates and cupcakes! xx

  21. Goodness how many layers were you wearing in the picture?

  22. I love that sweater!

  23. Hi Shini, I was at the blogger meetup yesterday, but I don’t think I introduced myself to you (was too shy!) Anyway, I love the mix of patterns in this post, so surreal to be seeing knitwear in a post!


  24. love the layers and patterns

  25. That poncho is delightful! Goodbye winter, get the hell outttaaaa here.

  26. I really love this poncho, i bought it for a friend past year… is amazing!

    Love your blog, visit mine if you want http://www.collagevintage.com , i hope you like it! :)


  27. You look so warm and cosy. You need to be sitting by a fire with a hot coco. I live in Australia and we’re just getting into winter now, but I grew up in Canada so I have a love of getting all bundled up.

    I love the idea of the pashmena with the belt – looks fantastic, and yet so easy and effortless. You look great in such a mix of textures and colours. And the boots are amazing too.


  28. Although out of season, I love the look! Congrats on the last ever exam . . .

  29. Just started reading your blog recently, and really really like it. This poncho is fantastic, especially how you’ve belted it. And I want to say adieu to the cold for a while, too!

  30. Here here! (You look fabulous, as per usual (;)

    I have exams next week at uni and have no idea how I will get my head around differentiation, integration, vector components and taxonomy before then… god help my soul!


  31. it must be nice to bid adieu to the coursework, and the season, very fitting post. a great homage to the winter months. x

  32. I’ve just discovered your blog and i love it so much! Great pics and look! <3


  33. love your boots!

  34. Probably a good thing I don’t have that bag, I’d drool on it. Yes, it is possible for me to drool on it, since I’d want to sleep with it cuddled up to my chest.

    Yeah, I like the bag.

  35. Beautiful. Such a great outfit. <3


  36. Amazing boots!

  39. oh my god this is ADORABLE. you look like one of those mori girls, which is a term i use way too much ever since i have discovered it and started watching a bunch of japanese indie movies :OOO the layering looks so so cozy and makes me want to shake my fist at the sun outside my window right now. shaking!!
