Ootd#7: Cobalt

IMG_9537

So this may or may not be the last ootd post for a while because uni and second round of placements is looming. After taking these photos, I realised I didn’t focus enough on the details of my outfit (ie. shoes + jacket) never mind! I’m sure these pieces will appear again in another ootd post.

I absolutely love this cobalt blue turtle neck knit I got ages ago. It seems to go well with my complexion, and it’s warm even though it’s sleeveless! These slouchy drape pants are my new favourites (also worn by Nicole on Blankbird). I love the way she styles them with a cropped high neck top and loafers. Funnily enough, before this post, I intended on simulating her outfit. I went to Witchery not knowing I had bought the exact same pair of pants she was wearing in the photo (and on sale too, only $30!). I also found her shoes at the Wittner outlet store – unfortunately I couldn’t justify getting these as I already owned two pairs of loafers which were similar enough…it also didn’t look (or feel) as it good as it did on Nicole. Pooooh. Well, my loafers will do (or so I keep telling myself…)! Let me know what ya’ll think!

ps. Please excuse the hair tie around my wrist in some of the photos (oops), let’s be realistic – what practical everyday girl doesn’t do this? lol..

Hobba Eatery & Bar is probably the best place we’ve had lunch so far. To top it off, it’s close to Chapel Street, but the parking isn’t as cray to find. Although I could be very wrong since we went on a Wednesday early afternoon. Apparently this place is crazy full on weekends. IMG_4949 IMG_4948 IMG_4944 IMG_4950 IMG_4955 IMG_4956 IMG_4958 IMG_4959 IMG_4960

I had the Confit Duck and Mushroom Croquettes, Ken had the Bubble and Squeak. Both are AMAZING. Their brown butter hollandaise hits the regular hollandaise out of the park. This will sound ridiculous cos it’s just a tomato, but the tomato in the Bubble and Squeak is so infused with flavour it instantly reminds me of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’s Supper Gobstoppers upon tasting it! Definitely worth a visit for you brunch/lunch junkies out there, I personally think it is better than Hammer&Tong (for those of you who have been there, I talk a bit about it here)!
