Endless Summer

Keep wondering what’s going on with the weather, it’s already mid-November but in Hong Kong you still feel like in summer. So every time when I see a long coat, I tell myself “Ok I will bring you home next time, if it gets cooler.” But I still haven’t got the chance LOL

Last Sunday I have visited Peng Chau,  a small island near Hong Kong with no traffic on.  The only way to get there is to take a 20 mins ferry from the Central in Hong Kong. Basically it’s a small village surrounded by the ocean and mountains (there’s a popular hiking trail called Peng Yu Path btw). My art teacher Mr. Yeung is a Peng Chau based art guru and he has a gallery here. Thanks to his invitation, I have the chance to explore this tranquil place with strong local culture.

Since there’s no car on the island, bikes are necessary for both tourists and residents.(@Fashionmimo)

Have to say this island is really an ideal place for photo shooting, thank you Nana Wu for modelling this time ❤ (@Fashionmimo)

It was tea time when we entered the restaurant. In Peng Chau, afternoon tea is never a highbrow thing. Just to grab some milktea with a sandwich, life should be easy isn’t it? (@Fashionmimo)

OOTD: les cheveux court

First post in October! Just realised that there are only 3 months left for this year, it’s just too fast! I keep wondering why time passes much much faster now than when I was a kid, anyone feels the same?

In order to get rid of my tangled long hair and to welcome the upcoming turtule-neck season(:D), I cut my long hair short. And have to say, it’s super cool to have a carefree and neat hairstyle! Especially good for those mornings when I gotta rush to class after maybe like 4 hours sleep, I don’t even need a comb 😀

It rained a lot in Hong Kong these days, then after this maybe we will eventually have the cool autumn. So let’s see what my OOTD is for the pre-fall weather.

Shirt from M&S, pencil skirt from ZARA. Heeled sandals and clutch are from MOUSSY. (@Fashionmimo)

Maybe some would ask: WHY pencil skirt AGAIN?? Well, I have to apologise for my pencil-skirt fetish(lol) but I’m always in love with their nice cutting!

This time I chose a longer one with side slits. The thick fabric brings more vintage feelings to the whole look. (@Fashionmimo)

Also I need some petit flowers to avoid being dull, ring and necklace are both from the french brand Les Nereides. (@Fashionmimo)

Cozy Weekend

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Cou cou! Here comes our awesome cozy weekend again. This sunday’s gonna be Chinese Moon Cake Festival so I’m already home and gonna spend it with my family. Normally we barbecue near the pool at night, in order to appreciate the silver moonlight reflected on the water and have a bite of lava-custard (?) moon cake 🙂 Actually there are so many types of moon cakes that I just couldn’t distinguish them…

So what’s your plan for this weekend? I got that feeling maybe I’m too old to go out now… Most of the time I just like to chill at my place and share pics on social media to pretend being socializing but ACTUALLY I’M NOT and I hate going out hahaha. Just kidding, but if you are also a couch-potato advocate, make yourself a good music collection and a cup of coffee 😉 or afternoon tea,whatever. (@Fashionmimo)

Happy Stroll

Finally back in Hong Kong for school but obviously I am not in working mood in the first week. Hence I met up with some friends and started a shoot-stroll-eat day 😀 Sheung Wan(the soho area near Central) has always been my favourite strolling spot in Hong Kong, so this time we shot our OOTD there and had some delectable plates in a restaurant with a petit garden.

The Food

We randomly walked in Mo’s Bros because of it’s delicate little gate. It is so lucky that we got walk-in seats. Cuz later when I checked online, people complained that this place is always full. The address is B/F & G/F, 16 Elgin Street, Soho, Central, Hong Kong. (@Fashionmimo)

Be Natural

HELLO! Sorry for my absence for over a month because… it’s the internship season. Well, it’s a long story and I don’t even know where to start with. But whatever it’s always good to leave my comfort zone and do something I don’t have much chances to do (even though it’s unpaid…)

Well, I’d better not making this too negative. So let’s talk about my weekends. On weekdays, normally I stay in the office for more than 10hours. Hence I crave the fresh air and the nature so much. And I’ve follow some interesting accounts on instagram such as “vintage_vogue”and “70sdaily”. They are quite inspiring that make me wanna do something “country” and “70s” by myself.

OOTD: Summer Outfits

It has always been a problem to cool myself down under the sticky hot weather. You know, no one would really care about what you’re wearing when it’s above 30 degrees Celsius all the time. When everyone is stinky and sticky then you realise FASHION is not needed anymore (laugh).

Just kidding, I still need to blog and THANK YOU Alison and Tori for modeling this time 😀 Wondering if there’s anyone like us struggling in the hot weather, let’s talk about our summer outfits! To be neat and comfortable, that’s my summer dressing rule.

The cold colored denim and the white dress could be a good match. (@Fashionmimo)

Floral Pieces

Keep doing some street snaps this week, and I believe you have prepared some floral dresses for this hot summer haven’t you?

Street Snap Monday

Spending my summer vacay in my hometown FOSHAN with some old buildings. “Simple” and “cotton” are our key points about this summer.

Crop Top Never Go Out of Style

Can’t remember since when, crop tops have replaced my regular T-shirts.  As a girl with broad shoulders, it’s really confusing that most normal size T-shirts become too small for me. Or sometimes I can’t tell why, they just look weird 😦 Especially for the round collar T-shirt, it’s just a nightmare: it will make my shoulders look wider and thicker.

Then I found crop top solves most of these problems with it’s nice cutting. There’s a basic rule for myself: If I wanna choose a top with sleeves, then it must be with wide-neck or shoulder-off; or vice versa, high-neck and sleeveless would be better.

Crop top and high waisted jeans are always BFF. Sometimes if I don’t have a high-waisted jeans with me, I would tie a shirt around my waist to balance the whole look.

American Apparel is the easiest way for me to get different types/colors of crop top. (@Fahionmimo)

Most crop tops have matching skirts, it’s stylish to wear a whole set in the same pattern. But you can also match it by yourselves:) One of my favourite is pencil skirt, neat but elegant. (@Fashionmimo)

Feel Like Wide Leg Pants

Well, I believe that everyone has at least heard about Wide Leg Pants for several times. They are back on trend AGAIN. I just find myself unable take them off once I put on, cause they’re truly comfortable and balanced. However, some of my friends would complain,”Uhhh I don’t think a short girl could handle them.” or “They make my legs look shorter!”

Here I wanna say is, wide leg pants are definitely not just for models!  They magically hide most girls’ less confident parts (waist and hips), and show the line between calf to ankle (which is extremely sexy). There are some tips for those who are still hesitating to put them on.

1. Choose a high-waist one.

Well well… if you are not that confident about your shape, please think about it before you choose something like this…

High-waist pants will perfectly stretch your legs,  combined with wide flares also make your shape looks better.

2. “Crop pants and high heels”

If you have no idea about how to match your pants, remember: high heels never go wrong.  Especially for crop pants, a pair of high heels would become your best weapon to catch others’ attention.

3. There’s no rule!

Not like jeans or hot pants, you can wear this pants at any occasion. Office, beach, party… never restrain your ideas, try every possibilities! (@Fashionmimo)

For party or beach, let the pink crop tank and wide leg jeans to bring up your mood! (@Fashionmimo)
