Summer Travel Diary


 I am pretty fortunate that I'm allowed to travel a lot and definitely experience different cultures and inhale good food along the way. This summer I went to Barcelona and London consisting of old victorian buildings still preserved and it was nice to see a change of more red bricked houses with chimneys and walk on cobbled stones although it is a difficulty when walking in boots. I've never been to Barcelona before and to soak in the atmosphere-mostly just Gaudi's work, a famous architect who designed cathedrals and houses always with a theme of nature in his works was amazing to learn the backstory of how he gets his inspirations and end up portraying it in his buildings. iPhone uploads  and video diary should be up soon, I hope.

I hope everyone had a good summer too.

Weekend Series #2


I'm really into extravagant skirts-poofy, laser cut, printed, you name it. Pretty extravagant to me because I'm usually wearing solid colours where I'm a huge colour block. It's time to wear bathroom floors on your skirts guys, thats the message. Might stick to plain shirts and crazy skirts for a lifetime until I step out of my comfort zone.

On another note: I'm thinking of changing my blog name but I've been so uninspired and lacking creative juices. Also trying each possible future blog name has been taken on the net.

House of Sunny


All photos from houseofsunny.com

Is it possible to want everything from a whole store? Oversized apron dresses, satin pants, smudge print everything and boxy cuts minimal cropped tops adorned with karate belts. Overload of zippers: on skirts and reversible zippers on jackets with just the right amount of impracticality but having a zipper function is so much more interactive. (Never thought I would use interactive with clothing heh.) Anything pyjama pants is probably what I'm searching for because snuggly clothing that are also tapered are an extra combo-printed ones especially. Apron dresses reminds me of a kangaroo pouch so that I keep all my valuable in the front like a pre-built in fanny pack.

Weekend Series #1





These were taken by an iPhone hence the grainy pixelated photos, other than that I'm pretty excited for a week more till summer break, going to get a trim soon so my unkempt hair is not looking like an eradicated mess. Taking a breather for the weekends after semi-tests and prepping for my tests during the holidays is definitely something I'm looking half-looking forward to.

B & W part 2

Wearing: Top and shorts from H&M and CDG x converse shoes

Went against my word and stayed back to black and played with textures. Never really see myself as a cropped sweatshirt kind of person but here I am exposing skin still sweating like a pig. I've also been on the hunt for lace shorts not too sheer and not too holey so I'd get caught onto people and this might be the one (or many hunts to go). Not to mention its elastic waistband so I can wear it as high for the high waisted looks. Sometimes playing it safe with black and white is probably the easiest method to keep it basic but also everlasting. Also my sneakers are losing its cream look and turning more into leaving black bruises of dirt on them, I probably should start giving it a clean. I must say though I have the awkwardest poses and please excuse my natural sleepy face.

Seeya,
J

Getaways




1'' This T by Alexander Wang top was to die for- built in bralette, not too much exposed skin, perfect dusty ash blue and purple colour and also not in my budget.
2'' Cafe Habbitu- a place which I have yet to try and stop cutting through during heavy rain.
3'' Mother's Day flowers pretty aromatic I must say.
4'' J. Crew's first store in Hong Kong, where it's billboard is made out of mahjong tiles.
5'' and 6'' Muji Cafe and green tea overload.
7'' Central streets.
