Nastygal top, Zara jacket, 7 for all Mankind jeans via Shopbop, Zara boots

I'm definitely a fan of the dressing-in-one-colour thing (otherwise known as tonal dressing, I believe) and my prior encounter with a triple dose of white left me wanting to explore this gorgeous yet sometimes much-feared colour in different ways. 

Enter 7FAM and their textured snakeskin jeans - I love that the print isn't overdone and white was naturally my top choice; green and red were a little too in-your-face for me. I knew I had to do it with them lovelies, and here wore the same white top from early suitcase days in Vietnam and bargain Zara jacket perfect for weather hovering just below the 20 degree (C) mark. Sometimes you'd like to finish your look the way you started, and perhaps this would've gone well with pointy white heels and a little white cross body bag. But those heels never made it into my suitcase and in any case these black zip-up booties are my current obsession. And speaking of obsessions, this little patchwork bag and I have been inseparable ever since day 2 in Ho Chi Minh City. Colourful company is good company, right?

Stay tuned for one last dose of suitcase dressing x
