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!

Fun sole with Soludos

One of the best things about warmer weather is shorter sleeved top. This is also the time I like to bust out my colourful bracelets and just pile them on with my watch. I recently scored this beautiful Jay King turquoise convertible necklace from HSN. The end turquoise part is magnetic and it is detachable to be worn as a bracelet. To go with my natural theme, I added a fun starfish maxi skirt and this adorable pair of Soludos pineapple espadrilles.

My feet also feel so happy to be liberated from those winter socks. I do need a pedicure before these toes can be shown publicly but in the meantime can we all just only focus and appreciate how adorable these shoes are? I scored them during the Friends and Family sale on Shopbop. One thing to mention though, they are made out of straw material so they are not the most durable shoes out there. In fact, the right sole already has a small piece of straw poking out on the side (not a big issue since they don't bother me). I do want to invest in another pair just so I don't destroy them so quickly in one season.

I am thoroughly enjoying the warmer weather. Sandals and maxi all season! Hope you won't get tired of seeing them :)

Spring into denim

I wish I had taken blog pictures today instead because we are currently experiencing some awesome heatwaves. Mind you, my winter toes are still not ready to show themselves yet but everyone else here are all enjoying this nice little warm break (as we will be back to cooler and cloud next week). Regardless, I am still happy to ditch those heavy winter coats.
Last week we took a stroll to Portland State University and found this alternative entrance into the campus. It was on a Sunday morning so the place was quite deserted. There is this calming serene quietness around, a little unusual but nonetheless very quaint. PSU is located in the center of downtown Portland so it is rare to see the campus being this empty.
I am wearing my most favourite denim skirt. It is also very comfortable and figure flattering. Today is the last day of Shopbop's Friends and Family sale (code INTHEFAM gives you 25% off). I may have made a sneaky purchase that is inspired by this very denim skirt I am wearing. Not to worry, I will definitely show you once it arrives
I am hoping for my next blog post, I will be in full spring outfit, but in the meantime I hope you are all doing well tackling this transition in weather. Thanks so much for reading :)
