Back to School: A turtleneck outfit

        It's amazing how fashion has managed to get away with challenging its rules once again. What was once believed to be worn just for winter, turtlenecks have now been made possible to wear in the warmer months with sleeveless and short-sleeved versions of the aforementioned winter turtlenecks. Turtlenecks are brilliant as they can amp up any outfit while lending a bit of warmth as it covers up the neck, just perfect for the chilly classrooms in school. 

       I wanted to keep the outfit quite neutral so I paired my turtleneck with simple black pieces. To break it up a bit, I added a few gold and brown accents and there you have it: my back to school ensemble.

       What do you think of my outfit?

Waldorf Cruise

          After my 5 month hiatus on my blog, I’m finally back doing blogposts and getting back into reading and discovering brilliant blogs; most of which are filled with pictures of them on a holiday cruise. Gah, stab my heart now. *Insert crying emoji here* Travelling to several parts of the world in one cruise trip has been a long time dream of mine, despite my terrible case of motion sickness. I’ve been in that holiday cruise mood so much lately that I resulted in dressing up as if I were on one, sipping mango smoothies and pink guava juice with lemongrass.

          This time I’ve got my outfit centred around this lovely skirt I picked up from Stradivarius a few months back. At the time, I was shopping with Blair Waldorf (a la Gossip Girl) in mind.  I was very inspired by her trailblazing outfits and confidence. Her style was and always will be impeccable, timeless and elegant in every meaning of the word. In my mind, I could definitely see Blair wearing something like this in mind, except she would have it with her perfect signature headband of dominance. I’ve paired it in my own style with this beautifully designed lace top, then added on a pair of tie-up sandals and white denim jacket to keep it casual. I finished off the outfit with one of my many wide-brimmed black hats to keep me with even the slightest bit of protection from the sun. 

          This is definitely one of the many outfits I would pack and wear if I were on a gorgeous summery cruise, hopefully approved by the Waldorf of great finesse, despite being a little more revealing than her modestly sexy outfits. 

          Now, dahlings, do tell me, if you were on a cruise, what drink do see yourself sipping on all day long?


        T-shirt dresses have instantly become my favorite go-to piece this summer. I mean, what’s not to love? It’s lightweight, breezy and easy to style. It’s foolproof for anyone who is in a time crunch or is too lazy to figure out what combination of tops and bottoms to wear.

        As soon as I saw this T-shirt maxi, I was spellbound. I knew I had to have it. It was the perfect piece for a comfy sleeping dress and an easy casual outfit. Two birds with one stone, baby!

        I wanted to go with a bohemian magic gypsy vibe to the outfit so I paired it with this beautiful long necklace that I couldn’t leave the store without. Its design transported me to a world of sorcerers and fairies and witches and wizards, like I was carrying the key to its world. You know what I mean?

       The long necklace helped to break up the long, shapeless dress and elongated and streamlined my body than if I were to wear something short like a choker or a bib necklace. I then topped off my outfit with a hat for that extra witchy, hocus pocus feel, my favorite pink shades for a pop of color and t-strap sandals, keeping it simple and casual. And boom, another outfit centered around a basic piece.

      So, what do you guys think of my outfit? 


        According to Harper’s Bazaar, scarlet red is the trending colour this summer. It just so happens to be my best colour, so you know, YAY FOR ME. Even though my favourite colour’s pink, red has always been the colour that looks best on me. It perks up a happy, energising mood and brings my complexion to life unbelievably well. 

         I paired this brilliant red off-shoulder top with high-waisted floral shorts, and gladiator sandals. Yes, you heard me. Gladiator Sandals. What was once a pair of shoes that represented a slave forced to fight for entertainment, the Gladiator sandals have become a style that many have turned into beautiful boho-chic foot wear. Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly Gladiator. It is reminiscent though, of the style except my lace-up sandals are a tad more feminine. I added on my favourite pair of sunglasses at the moment. My pink-tinted lenses, gold-framed sexy beast of a potato sun-blocking sunglasses. And just like the cherry on top of your ice-cream, I topped off my look with a hint of red on my lips.

        Please do tell me, what are your best colours?

Not your basic Basics

        You know those times when you're in a hurry or you have no idea what to wear? Yeah, I know, I definitely do. When I'm faced with such dilemmas, I always go back to my basics because they're the easiest to style and the most comfortable to wear. 

        My basic pieces are always denim, be it shorts or jeans with a striped shirt. I own a copious amount of identical striped shirts, it's not even funny. In this outfit, I've got on ripped jeans that have become my favorite jeans to wear even in the summer. Its rips allow for more ventilation so it's not too hot to wear in the summer. I cuffed and paired it with a striped shirt trimmed with flowers. I love the extra little details with the flower trim and the rips on my jeans because it just makes my outfit a little more interesting than just the standard jeans and striped shirt. I topped it off with pointy white heels for its elegance and cat-eye glasses for its fierce sass. Because meow.

        So, next time you're in a pinch, try and base your outfit with basic pieces. You can never go wrong from there. Because you know what they say: When in doubt, go back to the basics. 

        Wait, do they actually say that?

The Denim Skirt

        If you asked me what my staple pieces are, one of it would definitely be anything denim; denim jeans, denim jackets, denim skirts. Denim pieces have the undeniable ability to be the perfect base for any outfit, easily transforming an outfit suitable for any occasion, be it casual or a bit more dressy. In this post, I will be styling one of my favourite staple pieces; a Front Button A-line denim skirt.

        One of my first denim skirts I’ve ever had, that I could remember, was in my first year of high school. I used to wear it all the time. To me, it was a much “girly-er”,  breezier option to the beloved standard denim jeans. It still is. The skirt I’ve got on has got to be my most favourite style of denim skirt because of its flattering  high-waisted A-line silhouette and its buttons running down the front, making it a little more than just a plain denim skirt. 

        I first saw this front button A-line skirt in Alexa Chung’s collection for AG and knew I simply had to have it. My wallet & reasonable self couldn’t justify getting a skirt with a quite expensive price tag, so I drowned myself in my sorrows. That is, until I saw this perfect baby in Zara and picked it up immediately with as much grace as I could muster. (Okay, there was basically no grace mustered, since I ran over excitedly and forgot people were even around until I looked up from my tightly grasped hands) 

        What about you guys? What are your staple pieces?

Blanketed in Pink

Hi Dahlings,

        As the temperature gets chillier again in Hong Kong, I've been dreaming of the cliche scenery as the colder weather takes effect. Imagine a warm, cozy ambience, fragrant candles burning, hot chocolate by the fire, a book in hand and in comfortable pajamas wrapped in soft fluffy blankets on the sofa at home.

       But, alas, that cannot happen too easily. When you're in a fast-paced city that demands to be alive and bustling with working people and students, there isn't a lot of time for my daydream to materialize. So, I've decided to bring it with me instead. For my cliche scenery "on-the-go", I brought a book in my bag for my commute, a hot chocolate to go whilst wearing a warm comfortable turtleneck and soft socks that feel as comfortable as my pajamas. To top things off, I blanketed myself in my pink trench coat. And voila, I've turned my daydream into reality.

        And as Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I think the outfit fits perfectly with the holiday's theme. With my cup of hot chocolate raised high, here's hoping that you all have a Valentine's day as warm as I'm feeling in this outfit or at the very least, without sounding corny, show yourself some love and turn your daydreams into reality.
