Istana is the official residence of the President of Singapore. The Istana building was built by the British Colonial government to house its governors. Completed in 1869, it was then known as the Government House. The building was handed over to the Singapore Government when Singapore attained self government in 1959, and renamed Istana (“Palace” in Malay).
It had been a long weekend for us last week. Hence, the gates to the Istana was opened to the public. Having lived here for few years, this was my first visit.

I wore this lightweight chambray shirt dress on this day. I would say the dress is perfect for our weather, except the shoes I chose to wear (meaning walking in the grass is difficult with those heels). I kept this simple and didn't want to add much, just one of those days where I choose to be simple and understated.
