A couple of years ago, I started a ‘lust list’ category on this site, where I created mood boards and collages of a spectrum of items ranging from clothing to home décor. After realising how much my personal style has evolved since then, I decided to rekindle this section of my blog, not only to document the way it evolves over time, but hopefully inspire your next shopping adventure.

On a related note, I was having a conversation with someone recently about a group interview they did for a job. They told me that they bumped into two people from my university who said they knew me and followed up with a kind remark regarding my sense of style in class. Awkwardly, though, my everyday outfits are largely comfort-driven, or anything I can blindly pluck from my closet in the wee hours of the morning. Upon further reflection, I realised that the easiest way to pretend that you have your life together is simply by having several formal pieces that you can mix with something more casual and comfortable. As such, here is a winter get-up for casual business meetings, or even just going to class.
