Mid summer early evening and a new piercing

I found this dress in my closet clean out two weeks ago and realised I had not worn it in more than two years! Under normal circumstance, I "should" get rid of it since it has been so long! I put it on, worrying it would be too tight across the chest/back area (since I have been doing alot more work outs like table-tennis and yoga etc). Luckily, everything still fit! It is not something you want to wear during the peak of hot/humid summer but for that early or late summer evening out, it is a very good option with the longer sleeves to keep you warm in case of that evening breeze. Anyway, I will let the pictures do the talking.
Something to reveal as you scroll down the pictures, I got a new ear piercing (just a single one on my left ear). I got my initial two piercings when I was only 13 years old in Perth, Australia. I then had some infections from the piercings (went to a chemist and they used the gun piercing). It was so painful and traumatising, it had stopped me from getting anymore new piercing again. I later learnt that gun piercing is actually not that great for tissue healing. The preferred (and hygienic way) would be hand piercing. The piercing is cleaner and more precise which both help with the healing process. After a little bit of online looking around, I found a nearby piercing studio (Black Hole Body Piercing and Tattoo) with really good reviews, and I just did it! I have to be patient and let it heal (2-4 months, I was told). Can't wait to add some dainty stud earring later on! I already liked some from Etsy haha.

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 :)
