- Long-sleeved tops are too warm, and sleeveless tops do not help me hide my
flabby- let's put it this way - yet-to-be-toned arms.
- They are the easiest to throw on every sleepy morning (Refer to last picture at the bottom of this post)
- They help us breeze through the day, both indoors and outdoors - no cold shoulders indoors, no revealing of flabby arms outdoors.
And so, you have gotta check out the awesome collection of short-sleeved tops stocked by Young Hungry Free, at reasonable prices. The quality has been described as "good", and I will find out when my parcel comes.

With a wardrobe full of light, short-sleeved tops as above, it really takes minimum effort each morning to pull something out and throw it on without thinking too much, and look good. To achieve that convenience, the items below have been tried and tested personally for the past 2 weeks.
I absolutely have to rave about the Uniqlo AIRism Bra Top. They were honestly god-sent with their comfort, and is the best investment for us here in Singapore, who get to enjoy the humid summer all year round. Somehow it is able to wick sweat, and help me to stay fresh throughout the day. The experience of having clothes stuck to the body in the cloying humidity is far behind me. I own a few in black as I wear this on a daily basis. They help me preserve my modesty when wearing translucent chiffon tops, or when wearing cropped tops that threaten to reveal my tummy if I as much as raise my arm a little... And since they are so thin, I have the freedom to throw on any top I want over it and start the day.
The next essential item would be the Ultra Stretch Jeans, also from Uniqlo, as it is both office appropriate and comfortable enough to wear everyday, whether you are at work or not. One other option would be by Jeanesis at Lowry's Farm. It is not news, but slim black jeans are real multi-taskers. Not only do they go well with everything, they give the illusion of slimmer legs. Both the ones from Jeanesis and Uniqlo are highly stretchable and comfortable, which is very important if you spend a major part of your day in them.
Some other everyday items as featured above would be:
Shoes from Charles and Keith, $56.90
Yellow Tote from Coach, $645.00
Sunnies ("Maala Shades") from Young Hungry Free, $21.00
