SHANGHAI 上海

Shanghai is one of those cities. It is beautiful in so many different ways that everyone who visits falls in love with a little part of it. As one of the quickest growing cities in Asia, the city is youthful and lively, not to mention fashion-forward. The city flaunts its concrete jungle and neon lights, showing off how modernized and globalized it is. At the same time, the skyscrapers stand side by side with the old-school brick buildings left from the 90’s. History has not been left behind.

WUZHEN 乌镇

The only time I’ve been to WuZhen before was when I was little. I don’t remember much of it other than the traditional Chinese architecture and the rain. The constant, soft drizzle. Not much has changed.

This forest green and navy blue combination I’m wearing has become my favourite colour pair.

There’s a reason for the term sweater weather. When the weather is getting chilly, the most effortless yet chic outfit is, no doubt, a simple cozy sweater with jeans.

Versatile lace

Although dresses may not be weather-appropriate anymore, styling versatile pieces is always fun. This white lacey dress is the perfect item for pretty much any occasion. Worn with booties like I did, it is perfect for a brunch date or a afternoon stroll. It can also be paired with sneakers and a leather jacket for more of a casual look.

THE GRANDPA SHORTS

Short shorts, like always, have had their shining moment in the past couple of months. If you’re like me, however, it is not time for shorts to go into hibernation just yet. The length of the grandpa shorts is perfect for the weather. The silhouette screams “cool girl” and the look is super fall-appropriate.

UP-CYCLING

Every time I go back home, I make it a mission to raid my mom’s closet. With the 80’s and 90’s various style trends cycling back again and again, I find that I still manage to find super vintage and trendy pieces.
