Celebrated my birthday last Wednesday, 19 August. Scary how the year's come and gone so quickly. Another year older, not necessarily wiser, but thankful for all the blessings I have received and the well wishes from all my dear friends.
Kept it a quiet celebration and just had a quiet dinner and drinks. I guess as we get older, wild parties and big bashes seem to be replaced by more intimate settings and keeping it only amongst loved ones.
This was a dress I had already sitting in my wardrobe with the price tag still on for at least 4 years - and finally decided to wear it for this special occasion.
Don't you just love that mini peek-a-boo? Thank you Frank for that lovely birthday gift!! Been eyeing it for awhile - contemplating between the embellished choices but finally decided to keep it simple. Never owned a white bag before so this is the first...LOVE IT!!
Kept my accessories simple - pulling out an old favourite Tiffany Bone Cuff and Metropolitan Museum of Art earrings which was a good match to the cuff.
Got these lovely Charles David shoes from Florida and another favourite I must say as the neutral tone matches with most of my outfits and it's definitely a comfortable shoe style to wear. There is something about wooden heels that often draw me to the shoes... just such a classic style.
Thanks for reading and so I leave you with this final birthday shot and my wish is that everyone's wishes come true!!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far. During my recent summer vacation, I decided to try on a style that I had never own before - "The Wide Leg Pants". Found this floral wide leg pants kinda interesting with it's slight peek a boo detailing. Ideal for travel and comfort, I wanted to style it differently and went with a loose 3/4 sleeve top instead of the conventional tighter fit crop top / tee which most other bloggers tend to gravitate towards.
Got a few compliments out and about in this outfit in Florida, and seeing it's wrinkle free for both top and bottom, it would also make an ideal outfit to wear on a flight.
An outfit style to fit all body types, I think it's certainly a cool chic look to trend for the rest of summer.
Accenting this outfit with a punch of colour with my Celine Trio Bag in Pink which as you can see, I had taken it apart and used the first panel as a clutch this time. A perfect travel bag to own.
Thank you so much for reading !

These shots were taken awhile back when I had done a Video on White Shirt Pairings and thought it would be nice to re-post this look to inspire you to trend maxi tulle skirts for the rest of Summer.
The peachy tone of the skirt and it's flowing gracefulness reminds me so much of attending a Garden Party - even more so ( if I could ever have a chance) one in Tuscany. Just that cool casualness about this outfit is ideal for even Sunday Brunch or a Weekend Wedding.
Trending with old accessory favourites from my wardrobe - metallic clutch, layered stacked bracelets, thick studded waist belt and my beloved Michael Kors watch to complete the look.
Here are some street styles of wearing Long / Maxi Tulle skirts. Remember pairing it with an appropriate style top would define the outfit as you would like it to be e.g glamourous or dress down.

Decided to post this up quickly whilst I had a bit of time heading back from work earlier today. Been busy crafting and sewing and making all kinds of beautiful crafts with my kids at summer school. So now it's back to blogging again in my free time.
Mix and matched old favourites from my closet for this look e.g Zara skirt, cuff and clutch bag.
You can also check out this look on my video on " Off Shoulder Pairings".

A hot and sunny week in Hong Kong and whilst the sun is getting stronger and brighter for next week ( can you imagine it's forecasted to be hitting a high of 34 degrees celsius the whole of next week -I am certainly getting out all my sleeveless tops, shorts, straw hats and more so making sure plans are made to stay indoors a fair bit more than out and about. It's just not on people.....
Another holiday shot trending Yellow which is a hot summer colour, and keeping the look nice and simple pairing it with my gold Steve Madden sandals for that extra oomph.
I had many a compliment thrown my way each time I wear these sandals out. Be it in Florida or here back in Hong Kong. Love the assymetrical design and with that extra gold bling to accent this beautiful tan leather sandals - it certainly captures one's attention.
Most people are often scared to pair a loud statement necklace over a " loud" printed top, but sometimes " loud on loud" does work!
I always believe with every outfit - you can play around and work with maximum 2 statement pieces. In this case, I went for the statement necklace and bling sandals.
Have a great weekend and a fabulous week ahead!
