Pink jeans get an outing...and more Bangkok

WARNING - Exceedingly picture heavy!

FINALLY - the Zara pink jeans get an outing. I bought these literally months ago and although I tried them on and loved them, never wore them out. I am not sure why but in the colourful world of Thailand - where as many of you noted, buses and taxis are pink - I felt it was an appropriate time.

Whilst I think the pairing of blazer and tee with these little bright numbers is acceptable I have to  be honest and admit that I am a little sad at what I bought with me to Thailand. I did one of those frantic last minute suitcase stuffings the night before the flight and it was only once I had arrived that I realised I didn't bring the items I really should have. So frustrating but thankfully some core H&M basics made their way in to the mix.

These photos were taken in a random alley off Silom Road as I always feel a little funny/self-conscious about OOTD's taken in public. Not quite sure it has hit the mainstream yet :)  And yes, I am still working the conical wand wavy hair in the most obsessive way possible - I just canNOT do straight hair these days.


Don't you just love the nose imprint received after heavy sunglasses wearing? :)

Jeans: Zara
Blazer: H&M
Tee: H&M
Bag: Miu Miu
Shoes: Tory Burch
Sunglasses: Gucci

Bangkok all wrapped up

Bangkok was everything I thought it would be. Metropolitan and sprawling. I was only there for a few days and barely scratched the surface. I would love to go back to explore it in more detail.

For those of you interested (or not :) I stayed at the Lebua hotel. It's the one featured in The Hangover 2 and they are riding the tails of that claim to fame hard with lots of mentions of the film in the hotel - not sure why, it's hardly Bond is it?

Anyway, it's a fantastic hotel and many of the photos that follow show you the incredible Sky Bar and Sirocco restaurant - located 63 floors up - and Breeze, located a mere 52 :) The views are just amazing.

Here are a random collection of photos - I have many more, including some more traditional sight-seeing temple ones but I can hardly share 100s of photos with you so here's a small selection...






And some of the Lebua hotel...




Apologies that this is such a long post - fingers crossed none of you are on dial-up connections!

I leave Thailand on Wednesday so it's a few more days of spotty blog service from me. Hope to get another post up tomorrow though, if only to show you the goodies I got in Bangkok :)

Goodnight from Koh Samui :)

  8. How exotic! :) the pink jeans go perfectly with the colorful surroundings!

    Just put my conical wand for sale on eBay, I just can't use it without heavily burning myself, I need to stick to the regular curling irons!

  11. @missarch - actually i was good and skipped them :) but obviously they caught my eye :) haha thank you! it's a topshop number :)

    @Musing on Beauty - ah I love it at the moment: but have also hated it before as it's so easy to burn yourself. I just wear Constructivist paint pot, mythology and then blacktrack fluidline as an eyeshadow over the outer half of the eye. Oh and TONS of mascara :)

  12. @Gos - ah I have sooo many food pictures it's insane. Thailand has FANTASTIC food. In my Koh Samui post I will include loads to tempt you even more :) haha

  58. Laura you look stunning (nothing new there). Love the pink pants. They definitely match the vibe and atmosphere of bangkok . I stayed at Lebua 2 years ago when I was visiting Thailand and have to admit, its a darn good hotel, I absolutely loved the breakfast there. Did you visit the night markets? they sure are an experience haha , safe travels xx

    ps Thailand is much more appropriate pink jeans weather than Brighton!!

  67. Actually you should not regret the clothes that you bring with, as from the pictures you look amazing. And that sequence cardigan is absolutely beautiful piece, and you look gorgeous with it. BTW may I ask for a full picture of the last white lace dress, it is very unique design in the up part, but wondering how long is the dress actually be, is it a midi or long one?
