Cropped and stripes

Happy summer to all of you who lives in the northern hemisphere. This season I have decided to step out of my comfort zone and try the cropped top. I have only bought one so far to test it out, but as I become more comfortable with this style and it's pairing, I am sure I will be adding more pieces.
I found this cute denim ruffle top from Zara last week when we made a spontaneous day trip to Seattle. To me, Zara is like a treasure hunting ground. You must be committed to spend at least a hour inside, browsing through various racks and corners. The most important part is to actually bring everything you think you may be interested in to the fitting room and try them on. It is a hideous process for someone like me who's impatient and don't always love what I see in the reflection. However, I have learnt to eliminate the negativities and focus on what looks good on my body.
This top is incredibly comfortable. Its light weight, airy and best of all does not show too much stomach. I hope you like what I have paired it with. I am ready to face the summer :)

Get ready, hat, go!

We have survived winter and it is officially (or non official?) summer here in the Pacific Northwest! My toes are secretively the happiest when it comes to warmer weather because they can finally come out of socks and closed shoes. They honestly need a breather (and a pedicure, which since I got gotten). I plan on adding a couple of pairs of sandals this summer. I am all about comfort so I am looking forward to start my hunt for some new brands I have never tried before. Do you have any suggestions? I am not a heel girl and my favourite type of sandals for summer are flats or wedge. So far my favourite brands are Sam Edelman and Birkenstocks but I can not wear the later to work so I will need to search for more options.
What are you doing to kick start a new season? For those southern hemisphere readers, I bet you are bundling up with cool jackets and cozy scarves! Whatever you are doing to revamp your wardrobe, I hope you are having loads of fun doing so :)

Late comer May

Hello, how are you (feel free to sing along that Adele in your head)......

Long time no blog. I think this "trend" has been going on for a while. Let me explain. I feel like I do not want to stress myself out to post on a strict regular schedule. After all, I do have a full time job and I started blogging (believe it or not) so that I can share my OOTD (outfit of the day) with my fashionable mother (who lives overseas). Through my very part-time blogging, I have "met" some awesome people all over the world. I am so grateful and do still enjoy blogging when I have the time and the inspiration.
This blog is not going away, I can assure you. But I do want to put out a proper explanation on my irregular posting schedule. I do most more often on my Instagram (click on the right side bar to follow me). Either way, let's keep in touch. I will not go away, and I most definitely do still read many of my favourite blogs regularly!

p.s. I will be going to visit Boston this weekend This will be my first time so I am very much looking forward to this trip. Can't wait to learn all the history about the city. I will be posting pictures on my IG of course!
