Feeling girly with an asymmetrical dress

Every time I wear this dress, it makes me want to swirl (one of the posts about this dress here). Tell me I am not the only one who has done it.....I would check out how the skirt flows when I walk pass by a window. Yes, I am shameless to say that I check myself out (or rather, my clothes out...) occasionally all the time. But honestly, I love this dress. It is so comfortable, has elastic waistband (my best friend when pigging out on the Italian lunch today haha) and so much fun to walk around with.
It's when I am editing the photographs I realised I matched my sandals with the colour of the dress. Oh, let's just say I am really into everything nude/peach these days. I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer (sad sad). I booked a zip lining adventure at the end of the month so I am really excited about that (it would be my first time). Tell me about your late summer adventure. I would love to hear all about them :)

Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC, Bear 2 dress (old), Sam Edelman Reeves sandals (on sale here), Lindberg sunglassess, Stella and Dot renegade spike bracelet (comes in three different colours), David Yurman moonstone ring, Native America silver bangle (from South Dakota) and Tag watch.
I hope you will have a wonderful weekend ahead. Thanks so much for reading <3

Fuchsia, denim with Balenciaga

I want to show you what I normally wear on my day off. Denim is such an unique fabric, don't you think? You can go super casual or quite professional, it all depends on how you would style it. This denim skirt is however more on the casual side so I reserve to only wear it on my off days. I have also been living in skirts and dresses this summer because, but why wouldn't you? They are the most comfortable choices during warm weather.
I have also recently fallen in love with bright lip colours. I am not a make-up type of girl and the most I would wear is tinted lip balm. But after watching Alison Anderson's YouTube (her blog here) on the Revlon Matte Balms review, I decided to pick up two and try them myself. I bought Audacious (bright orange) and Unapologetic (matted coral pink, this is what I am wearing here). Alison bought a lot more colours and you can watch her video review here. I am glad I have finally got on the lippy wagon! Experimenting with different colours and formula have really been fun. I hope to share with you more of other lip products I will be trying out. Please share your experience with me as well (links if you have a YouTube and/or blog site).

Baublebar 360 earrings (I am obsessed with this style, get them here in several colours) and ring (in gold here), Levi's denim skirt, Sam Edelman sandals (old, but I love these and they are on sale here), Balenciaga City bag in Outremer and Lindberg sunglassess.

Thanks so much for reading. I hope your week is going well <3

Mid-summer denim vest with Rebecca Minkoff

Happy last day of July. The older I get I swear the time goes by quicker! Okay, that is as much "venting" as I will be doing. So, where did July go? For me, it was filled with 1. FIFA 2. Tour De France 3. Boba tea with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (from The Little Boba Truck) and 4. Wear skirts, dresses and sandals. Can't complain eh? I am looking forward to August when there is no table-tennis tournament so I can really relax and enjoy summer a little bit.
One little note about this outfit: originally I did not have the denim vest on. Right before I was about to leave the house, I turned on Instagram and saw one of my friends Aggieinsta (you should check out her awesome pictures though! The chicest teacher in Chicago) rocking her many denim vest looks. That is when I decided to "steal" her look for my outfit today!
One of the best things about blogging and Instagram is the opportunity of making many new "friends". I have really been enjoying it and I hope we get to speak or meet in person one day.

Top and skirt both by Iroo, Denim vest by F21, Born sandals, Baublebar 360 studs earrings (here), Stella and Dot bracelets (here and here, connect with my stylist Sabine Schropp), Lindberg sunglasses and Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini bag in plum.
Have a good day and thank you very much for reading :)
