Travel

DSC_2298

One of my favourite things about taking photos is how you can look at them days, months or even years later and they still have the ability to transport you right back to the moment they were taken. It has been a few months since my family was here on holiday and I am finally getting to the end of sorting through our holiday photos.

Stripes

Skirt: Tuulla – Top: Zara – Bag: Ralph Lauren – Shoes: Zara

Watch: TW Steel – Sunglasses: Dolce & Gabanna

I can’t get enough of stripe shirts and white anything these days. Stripes are timeless and although I will always love black, white is so much better in the heat. I am also digging the gladiator sandal trend that is happening this summer. Generally, I try not to pick up on the passing trends too much, but these are just too cute and so easy to dress down or up depending on the situation. Versatility is key when you live in Bangkok, where your day can begin with a champagne brunch and end with $2 street noodles. What can I say, I love this city – you just never know what each day has in store.

I recently had the opportunity to make a new friend, Kiki. She has a fashion blog, but instead of writing about her own personal outfits, she interviews other bloggers, so I was honoured when asked to meet with me. Not only is she absolutely adorable, but she’s kind and hilarious too!

If you’re interested in reading my interview, you can check it out here. Note: there’s a special announcement in the interview that you probably don’t know about yet!

Angkor

1

I recently travelled to Siem Reap and explored Angkor Wat for the second time. The first time I went I was a teenager and after being robbed of all my money on the first day, the 50 cent beers on pub street were mostly all that I could (not) remember. With this in mind, I was a bit worried to travel back to Siem Reap with my family, but was also excited to give Cambodia another try in hopes that I had a more pleasant experience the second time around. The good news is that Cambodia made a comeback in the mind of Elise and now she has a slight obsession. Why am I talking in third person?

Scarf: Artisans Angkor – Top & Skirt: Zara – Jewelry: random Thai markets

I’m back!!! I think this has officially been the longest I’ve gone without a blog post since I created A Piece of Elise. Shocking, I know! Having said that, just because you haven’t heard from me doesn’t mean I forgot about you. I have actually been working hard creating all kinds of amazing content that will be coming your way this week. I am very excited to share it all with you.

I <3 Flats

Ballet Flats: Flats a la Jolie – Top: Pomelo (similar) – Skirt: Curated by Ek Thongprasert

Tote: Charlie Middleton – Scarf: Vintage – Watch: TW Steel

Although  I can never seem to stop buying heels, when it comes right down to it, the shoes I wear most are flats. Since moving to the centre of the city, I spend most of my time walking, so comfortable shoes are more important than ever. People frequently ask me why I’m limping; it’s because the soles of my flats are so, well… hard and flat that it makes walking really painful!

Bangkok Tree House

DSC_0983

During hot season my Bangkok adventures tend to involve air-conditioned Uber rides out of my soi to Central Embassy, where I will spend the day in Rocket Coffee Bar working on something, followed by the evening drinking wine on the patio of Water Library. All in the comforts of aircon. Yes, the Water Library patio has some pretty fancy cooling mechanisms on the patio. Basically, I’m super lazy.
