    This is beautiful! It has to be in Singapore because I recognise the taxi and the rain! I really think I may need to go back to that shop and get some silk after all…!

    :))) I’m wearing the same top in black jersey now! Of course it is not as pretty as yours. It’s not the first time you used a gorgeous print, but this one is super pretty and colorful! I like it very very much!!

    I agree, it was a right choice of the fabric for this top; it saves its soft silhouette. And bright colours are just the best to wear:)
