Hawaii Day 1

Isn't typical of me to post something from a year ago? Just cause I see people on Instagram are enjoying their holiday so much (most of them are in Bali and I really, really, really, really want to be in Bali right now), I just thought that maybe looking at my own past holiday pictures would heal the wound :'( Or maybe not. But for the record, I fell in love at the first sight of Hawaii.

Last year was my first time in the U.S. and I've heard The Cheesecake Factory more than I've heard Korean actors said "Ya!" in movies, so I came in with no expectations whatsoever to try their cheesecake. And oh…. my God #theend #mylifewascomplete

So yeah, pretty much missing the beach life right now. There's something about beaches… that always want to lure me in…

I Miss Asia

Not really an outfit post, but yeah… sums up my feeling right now. I do have particular places where I want to be right now. In Asia. Now here are the pictures of Tokyo and some of its glory!

I will never get bored of Japan. Or any other country, really. You know, if you're away from one country for a long time and you come back, there's always more to explore and to look at. Unfortunately, this second visit of mine to Tokyo is only for a day (for a transit) and I didn't do much except bought a lot of Tokyo Bananas, three pairs of socks and a pair of kimono-like pyjamas. Oh, and a couple of eyeliners from Shiseido. I would loveeee to come back again to enjoy the mouthwatering desserts, barbecues, kakigouri and blah de blah de blah.

Navies Stripadot

Before it gets too summer-y (or it already is), I'll post this one look that my friend took during spring when mother nature was more generous with the wind. Have I told you that my favourite season is spring? I guess I did.

Primary Colours

I used to hate primary colours combined together. That was why I hated Snow White. I actually kinda still do hate Snow White, but maybe the hatred level has decreased. She was an okay princess who can only sing with birds over her shoulders and her bob hair stayed still. The only good thing about her is just her name. Anyway, enough about her because I've found a way to make primary colours look good together. Okay, it's a lie. It's a preference. Now I appreciate art more, therefore I appreciate every colour even more! Because what do you have in mind when you hear the word 'art'? Colour must be one of those things that roam around your head, no?

What I did to tone down the vibrancy of the colours is to use this pistachio-coloured bag which I overuse, I admit. And since it's summer, just beware of more skirt-posts cause trust me, summer in London is quite unbearable *hashtag sigh*.

Sporty Navy

I love it when a brand does a collaboration with a designer, especially if it's a print designer because not only the newly launched designs have mixed aesthetics and personalisation, it is unique and different from the rest of the collections in store. Uniqlo have always had collaborations with humbled designers that not everybody recognises but the collections that they create together intrigued me most of the time. My favourites among the collaborations Uniqlo had were Orla Kiely and Celia Birtwell. Look at the print on my skorts! Aren't they lovely?

Also, I've been waiting for the perfect varsity jacket (which have the letter A on it instead of any other letter) and I'm glad I can tell you that the search is over. I found one for only 20 quid from Pull & Bear during the sale! The colours are perfect (navy and burgundy, what could be better for a varsity jacket? Well, probably navy and mustard would be) and it is warm so I could wear it during winter. I know that this particular trend (varsity jacket) is ending but well, you can never get old with a jersey, right? It's like high school. You'll drag out your uniform once in a while to reminisce how fun, naive, stupid, gracious those years were.
