A Place by the Sea

One of my favourite local hang-outs in Brunei is the enormously extravagant Empire Hotel. Marble dolphins leap out of the grass, and palm trees line the sunny man-made beach. I am an avid swimmer; and sneaking in to use the Empire pool has always been one of my go-to activities while I’m home!

Today, rather than spending my time swimming, I instead slipped on my baby blue vintage dress (which I’ve been saving to wear in Brunei!) On my feet I wore my tasseled Dandy Loafers; courtesy of Wanted Shoes. The weather was overcast and warm; perfect for a poolside stroll, with a side of lounging of course!

  2. Marble dolphins! So damn amazing. And you look beautiful. I am always envious of your perfect milkbraids, and they are truly fitting for this ensemble.

  3. Oh my word, those loafers are a dream! I’ve been wanting the slip-on kind in tweed or leopard print…but those tassells are pretty appealing :)
