Floaty In Kuala Lumpur

Floaty In Kuala Lumpur

There’s only one thing I wish I’d been able to do more of in Kuala Lumpur and that’s shoot some fabulous outfit posts. I know what’s happened to me. The thing is I’ve learnt this year that what makes my style posts go easier is a great backdrop and there were so many great locations in this Malaysian capital. Sadly travelling alone meant no-one to capture my looks. I did try asking random strangers, even by targeting those with SLRs and it didn’t quite work out. I have lots of blurry and cropped pictures of me in great locations.

Thankfully there was one day when I got to see the city, as well as Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week – more coming soon on the amazing fashion, with Joyce from Kinky Blue Fairy, which meant I was able to shoot one of my favourite looks from my trip, this gorgeous floaty maxi dress.

Barbie x Sophia Webster

Barbie x Sophia Webster

I’m a little giddy sharing Barbie’s latest collaboration as my favourite doll has teamed up with one of the UK’s most exciting footwear designers Sophia Webster, who just also happens to be one of my favs as well, and she has put together a full-on, pink party of pin-up styles for both adults and children. 

The Barbie by Sophia Webster collection is just pure fun, fusing both Webster’s charm, her signature perspex detailing and her use of slogans, I’m sending out good vibes to add her Barbie Doll flats to my collection, and maybe the glitter hi-tops – OK so I want it all!

Transitional Dressing The Sleeveless Coat

Transitional Dressing The Sleeveless Coat

I don’t want to say that summer is over, the grey skies overhead are kind of making me think that, but I’m still holding out hope that the weather cheers up for the bank holiday and that we have a warm September. But this in-between weather causes a lot of headaches, transitional dressing is hard, it is still humid but not exactly summery, which is wear the sleeveless coat comes in.

The sleeveless coat really is a great transitional piece, and as a lover of layering it really works well over a T-shirt during this humid weather, and come autumn will look great over your favourite knitted jumper. As well as it being an everyday piece, I also love that it is versatile, add a sleeveless coat over a little black dress or tailored trousers and it really makes your look dressier.

My Kuala Lumpur Adventure

My Kuala Lumpur Adventure

It feels weird that this time last week I had just arrived in Kuala Lumpur with Malaysia Airlines, the flight was uneventful, I actually slept for most of it, and I was ready to explore this amazing city. Kuala Lumpur, or KL as its better known to the locals, is a great introduction to Asia especially as everyone speaks English, and I really loved the contrast of the steel-clad skyscrapers with historic monuments and architecture, and the crazy traffic with the beautiful parks. This Malaysian city really has a lot to over, including the most mega-sized shopping malls I have ever seen, these guys really know how to shop!!!

I was only in the city for four days, as part of the Malaysia blogger influencer exchange programme with Malaysia Airlines, and I wasn’t going to let a 13 hour flight, or the heat, which actually takes some getting used to, get in my way of exploring. I’m not really a sit around the hotel kind of person, granted the Grand Hyatt where I stayed was very appealing, but there is so much to see in KL that I got straight to it.

I will be sharing more detailed posts on my flight, my top sights to see, a look at the fabulous hotel I stayed in, as well as my experience at Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week, which was the main reason I was in the city. But I thought I would share a snapshot of my mini adventure, my highlights as you will to give you an idea of how beautiful KL is.
