Much to my own dismay, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. Much to my delight, exams are over & I finally have a whole heap of time to do absolutely shit all. Or get back to this blog. Either one.
Don’t worry, I’ll be attending to this blog much more & there will be many changes coming over the next couple of months (hopefully). Think, content that’s actually useful, tips & tricks & those shopping wish list collages you guys seem to love so much & other moire lifestyle-orientated things, but more on that later. Of course, this all depends on if I can remember what I just said.

Anyway, on to the outfit. Meet my new favourite bamboo sweat pants from Bamboo Monkey made of 70% bamboo & 100% style. The most flattering pair of sweat pants I’ve ever owned (there’s a phrase you don’t hear every day) & the most comfortable too. I mean, if there ever was an appropriate pair of sweats to wear out in public this is them but I’m still not opposed to walking out in my pyjamas so I’m not sure exactly how much that says..

Did you know though that just one kilo of cotton uses 20,000 litres of water which is about 80,000 standard glasses of water?? or that bamboo takes in almost five times the amount of green gases & produces 30% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees? I mean, is there anything bamboo can’t do. It’s kinda like the tree version of the versatile potato (is there any food you can’t make with them? Umm no.)
It looks beautiful as an alternative to timber flooring & it tastes amazing which is all I really need to know, but that may just be the asian in me. They’re also unbelievably comfortable & soft. I can’t be the only one who though wearing bamboo attire would leave me covered in splinters, can I? Well, no splinters or wood chips so far.

If there’s an easy way to do your part in preserving this earth then wearing bamboo clothing is probably the easiest. Did I mention how faltering these pants are? Bamboo material is quite heavy – well these pants were really heavy & quite chunky, so I thought they would bulk up my frame even more but they are strangely flattering & they even have a bunch of real pockets. Because those fake pockets are just annoying as hell.

  • Love your necklace Shannon :)
    Please remember what you’ve just said.

  • Rosy Flynn

    I’ve never heard of clothing made from bamboo, I quite like the idea of added bulkiness too because it would probably add a bit of warmth too.

  • 20000 liters of water?! I didn’t know that at all. Bamboo seems like a great alternative though I haven’t tried any bamboo clothing yet.

I am with you on that one 🙂 YAAAASSSS to real pockets!!!!!

    This is such a cool casual outfit, perfect for a lazy weekend. I have a few bamboo pieces and I really like how soft they are – it’s definitely a fabric I look out for when shopping! 🙂

    Hope you’ve had an awesome weekend 🙂

    I love this look, so simple but yet stylish and you look really comfy too. i heard bamboo feels really soft on the skin.
    Good you’re done with your exam. Enjoy your free time 🙂

  • Congrats on the end of your exams (it’s always a relief) and like you I used to do absolutely shit after my exams ahahah
    Bamboo is such a great fabric and I find it very soft. I got a nursing shawl in bamboo and a belly wrap and it’s very comfortable.
    This sweat pants is very neat (exactly what I would wear during and after exams ahaha). It doesn’t look heavy at all, it has this luxurious fabric feeling at least from the pictures.
    Have a great sunday.

    With Love,

  • I like bamboo for its many uses but OMG, that plant will take over the area if one is not careful with planting it. That said, how gorgeous is that sweatpants on you!

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • I did wonder about that. My dad used to get so annoyed if my mom grew bamboo because it would just sprout up everywhere (maybe she was secretly planting it everywhere? haha). Maybe it’s a different kind that isn’t so invasive? Or maybe they dig really deep trenches to contain them? Haha

  • arollorkins

    Such a chic look! I’m obsessed with those sweatpants, how can they look so comfy and dressy at the same time?!

  • Sam

    Man, I really need more sweatpants. They’re the perfect lazy day wear while still looking cute af haha. Plus, I don’t own any bamboo pieces (I think this is actually only my first or second time hearing about bamboo clothing).
    Side note: love your sunglasses!
