Fish or no fish, this is what I really like to wear daily

The weather was good earlier in the day and we decided to head to a spot we haven’t been in eons. The Mainland Tropical Fish Farm at Pasir Ris. This is basically a “fishy” place, where you can just drop by to feed the fish, fish a fish, or buy a fish. So don’t expect me to turn up all dressed up here. The trip was totally unplanned anyway and it so happened that what I like to wear was fish appropriate with all the splishing and slashing.

My son reminded me that a little girl had dropped inside one of the ponds the last time we were here. It happened really quickly but the good thing was the pond was shallow and she was quickly picked up. But the poor girl must have been quite traumatized given that the perpetually hungry fish must have tried to nibble at her. And speaking of nibbling, this fish farm also comes with a fish spa but we didn’t see anyone at the spa at all. The fish spa did look enticing but we basically kept our feet a safe fish-distance away.

Oh, these pictures were taken using my very normal point-and-shoot camera. I’m kinda pleased that I figured out how to blur the background using Photoshop. So no, I wasn’t trying to conceal my complexion in case that’s what some of you are wondering.

I don’t really care what others say about tees and shorts being too casual or that it’s a fashion crime. I love them and would be happy to wear them daily! So like what Renee mentioned, heck the fashion snobs! And my hair is short again as you can see. I’ve been meaning to stay away from short hair but my hairstylist basically got carried away while talking to me during the haircut session. Lesson learnt: don’t talk too much to your hairstylist if you don’t want your hair too short!

    Looking great! I think you were very appropriately casually dress for the little outing. =) I go out in simple tops, shorts, and my trusty sandals with heel straps too!

    It must have been a great day spending such a lovely time feeding fishes with your son. The weather looks just nice, no sun, windy? =D

      Thanks Jyoan! Shorts are great with heels actually but I love FitFlops all the time cos they’re comfy. I hardly wear heels except for work. 😀

    i think that as long as the shirt and footwear look nice and fashionable like the ones you’re wearing, shorts + shirt can look really hip yet comfy. :)

      Yeah, I think so too. I’ve seen some women looking really great in shorts and tees. I think it’s how they’re put together.

    the short hair looks good; you look younger in fact, as most women do with short hair (the only people who love long hair on women all the time are men!)

    • Sesame says

      You think so? I agree with the looking younger part…heehee…but I just think my face needs a bit more framing with longer hair now. I can’t wear my hair too long though and good thing my husband never asked me to keep my hair long.

    you are looking so cool 😀 no fashion faux pas for me :) i think this was the most appropriate which you could have worn for the place.

      I think some accessorizing helped. And now, I remember you posted your shorts outfits before. 😉

    I LOVE wearing tees and shorts. Even better if they’re spaghetti strap tops because it’s just SO HOT in south east asia!

    • Sesame says

      Yes, the weather is awful here on some days. I don’t wear spaghetti strap tops though…for some reasons, I dislike showing too much of my arms. 😛

    Yay! I think you look great. :) What’s wrong with looking casual anyway? I love casual, relaxed dressing :) Love your shorter hair too.
