All about Dressing Down with StanSmiths

I love the adidas Stan Smiths for being so classic and simple,
to the point that when you feel a little too dressed up on top,
you can always trust them to dress down your whole look in a classy, vintage-y way.

Little Red Dress + Golden Ear cuff

This is what I wore for our Primary 6 Graduation Dinner that one night:

A little red dress,
silver flats 
and my classic mini.

But the highlight of night was..
wait for it..

Shortalls + Classic Checkerboard Slip-ons

So this is me screaming "IT'S CASUAL DAY AT WORK TODAY" in the language Clothing.
: P

I love classic everything.
And these classic Checkerboard slip-ons are way past the awesome bar, just like my metallic pair.
They bring casual to the next level, especially in the summer.

Weekday night out in the summer heat (III)

Another inspiration for a night out with the boyfriend or your favourite girlfriends!

A super sheek green sleeveless made with the same fabric as those thinner wind-breakers.
GREAT for this mid-summer heat.
The colour makes the whole outfit so much merrier! :D

side note: excuse the shaky outfit selfies. I was in a hurry to meet my lovely friend! :P

But since it IS such a bright and happy colour,
I had to go with a much more neutral bottom,
and grey is always the go-to colour when it comes to toning things down
yet not DIMMING it all out altogether
(like what black would do).

Oh, and by the way,
Tip 1:
skirts with elastic waistbands are the best to invest in,
because you can pull them higher for a stylish high-waisted look
or rest them on your hips for a more sophisticated look.

"Hello, leaf!" exclaimed the Happy espadrilles.

And finally,
the whole look is wrapped up my 3.1 Phillip Lim pashli mini satchel 
and these equally bright and happy espadrilles I bought from Old Navy Canada last summer.
Super comfy and summery, I love them!

Tip 2:
If you go brave and bold with your necklace,
ditch the earrings (even small studs)!

A mix of comfort and girly elements for a good and stylish night out.

Pink Clouds !

I love anything that is beautiful effortlessly,
...and this,
was just surreal.

Pink clouds happen all the time,
it's just that it will never cease to amaze me 
how beautiful the sun makes the clouds and sky look
when it is saying 'goodnight, see you again tomorrow..'

Like nothing else in this world.

Such wonderful things surround us,
but it's up to you whether you see it or not.

Living in such a busy city,
with everyone's heads down and eyes on their phones even when they get outdoors,
these beautiful sights get neglected.

So I hope,
if you follow me on instagram
or read my blog,
you will at least get glimpses of these beautiful things
here and there
through my amateur lenses.

Happy Hump Day, people.

High-waisted classy denim shorts

It suddenly got really hot.
And then I thought to myself, "Why is it so hot? It's only.. Oh, it's July already."

This vintage plaid shirt makes the whole outfit really safe,
but you will not understand:
No matter how loose and how big the arm holes are,
when it's summer in Hong Kong,

anything more than a thin piece of cloth is too hot.

At least for me, anyway.

So the following is an alternative to the above,
about keeping that vintage plaid top as part of the outfit 
but changing it up a little so you don't get hyperthermia : P

And then of course,
when the heat becomes totally unbearable,
there's nothing you can do but strip down to the ultimate wife-beater.

If it's white, make sure it's WHITE!)

Here's the look with a more girly twist.
The headband does it all:

How it looks under the beautiful Hong Kong summer weather:

Hope you're still enjoying the heat!

Happy Canada Day!!
