There's something about the idea of a pencil skirt supposedly made to be worn in a corporate setting, made appropriate as an everyday fashion thing simply by a high slit and barely there coordinating tops that I like so much. The juxtaposition of all things combined - a little bandage-like and a mesh top against a crispy white, form-fitting skirt make for a really badass yet chic ensemble.
I don't even know how to begin with the weather, just look at these photos and you'll probably understand. Days like these, I just wanna wrap myself up in a blanket and curl up in bed. But then I only get the weekends off and so as much as I'd like to do that, it's mandatory that I get up and get out of the house.
Last weekend, I went to Hong Kong Ocean Park to celebrate Penguin's nephew's birthday with his family and thankfully, it didn't rain. Though still gloomy, being in a theme park made all the difference because I was with kids and the whole place was just colourful and merry so that's something to cheer up about. Not to mention I'm sort of a thrill-seeker, way more when I was younger, but that never disappeared so doing the rides was a blast. I don't know, there's just something about the weather these days that makes me feel so miserable so a change of scene, Ocean Park nonetheless was much needed.
Just another one of those gloomy days in Macau so I decided to brighten the day up a little bit with some pink numbers. These were essentially take on a Monday when I was feeling under the weather so I called in sick at work. In the evening, Penguin and I went for casual stroll and catch some air because it was super humid and staying at home didn't help with my condition. Outfit photos were, of course, mandatory given that I was already dressed up anyway. Don't look sickly, do I?
I'm such a fan of layering pieces with different lengths. The right kinds can create an outfit that's very wearable but seemingly Avant Garde, and that is exactly what I'm after. Case in point, this top that could double as a dress if worn over another dress.
