The Gloves With the Chanel-like Vibes

Yes, this post includes a pair of gloves. I feel like a majority of you is entitled to get an apology from me, as I know that you're probably a little sick of the warm outfits of the cold weather of non-spring where you're living now.
PS: Basing this assumption from the people I follow on Instagram who seem to wish to dive straight into summer if possible.

Hoping that you're still willing to bear with me with my wintery outfit posts before I delve into a new set of warmer-weathered clothes  which you most definitely will, as Malaysia is as hot and humid, as always.

    This was the last outfit of my Milan trip last month when the temperature still dipped to zero degrees Celsius. That kind of explains the gloves, right? Except to be honest I didn't completely need gloves on that day even though it was super cold, not particularly; it's just that I had gotten back from Rome the day before, where I had bought these gloves, and I reeeaaallyyy wanted to photograph them for my blog.

      When Shah and I saw a pair of black-and-white gloves that were on display in the front window of the store,  he (yes, it was HE) thought they have these Chanel-like vibes to them and was going to get them for me just because of that  only to prefer this navy blue-and-bronze version when I went inside to see the gloves.
      Also, these snuggly gloves made me realised how pathetically flimsy my existing gloves were, my God.

      I've always found gloves restrictive and incredibly un-cute, but at least this pair made me mind mittened hands a lot less now.

      I had to take an unwilling break from blogging because my laptop refused to turn on right after I posted my last polka dot jacket outfit and it turns out the motherboard needs changing. Un-be-LIE-va-ble, since my laptop is barely one year old,  plus on top of that my previous laptop lasted me for a decade so I'm just baffled, really.

      On the bright side, it's still under warranty until this week, so I'm looking forward to sharing my outfits again soon <3

      Wearing: Bonika Studio navy blue coat  |  Zara striped top & matching striped pants (worn in my Ines de la Fressange scarf post)  |  Uniqlo socks  |  Adidas Stan Smith


      1. I came back to your blog right on time then! I'm so glad you are back, Liyana! Anyway, those gloves do remind of those signature Chanel skirt suits that I love. They are super cute! And girl, wear all the winter weather you can. Honestly, I sometimes forget that different parts of the world have Spring and Summer at different times. Thanks again for such a wonderful post, Liyana!

        1. For some reason for the past couple of years I have been acutely aware of the difference in weathers of the different parts of the world... I think it started when I was wearing summery outfits all the time (Malaysia is hot and humid all year round!) and noticed the people I follow on Instagram were wearing thick jackets and thermal wear! But I can't change where I live, and I certainly have to dress to fit my own weather!

          Thank you again for leaving such a sweet comment Gigi! xo

        2. Have had family guests for a few days and took a break from my device.
          I love the fact that you've gotten such a kick out of winter fashion lately! Sometimes it takes something novel to re-energize us! I love a fun glove! It's definitely a unique way to rev up the ol' accessories!! Those jeans are quite novel too! Love, Jude

      2. I think you should squeeze every bit of enjoyment you can out of your newfound appreciation for all winter related fashion. It's been fun to see your enthusiasm and simple pleasures gained from enjoying ehat is very novel weather for you!
        Love you pattern mixing her. The gloves are so cute and the pants are really inique! Love, Jude

        1. I think I definitely did that during winter, but coming back to share the photos this late feels a little weird when everyone is already in their spring gears! But then again I'm not experiencing spring either so I'm "squeezing" right now!

          I lovelovelove the matching set but the front of the pants bothers me a little! I love the little gap but I'm thinking about adding some sort of material to make it more structured? Hmmm.

      3. Hehehe, you never fail to make my heart smile and you're always so cute! I don't know how you do it seriously. I know nothing about the vibes of Chanel, but I really am awed about the gloves being one of the best pair you have to suit the cold weather. Right now, I'm melting over here so I really am excited for your breezy outfit styles to weather Malaysian signature humidity. Love that cheeky smile of yours urgghhhh! :p xoxo

        1. Awww shucks, you're making me blush, Shanaz, thank you babe <3 <3 <3. I'm actually pleased my expressions could evoke such a reaction, since I was very genuine in each and every photo here. I barely posed, so I guess barely posing is not a bad thing, eh?

          Oh yes Malaysia is hot hot hot as usual, I'm staying indoors pretty much allll the time and only go out at night!
