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)

The pines, the cloud and the fog

Last week I have been to Huangshan, one of the most famous mountain ranges in China. It took me 2 days to climb up those peaks and to watch the sunrise. Personally I really enjoy hiking, especially that sudden cool feeling when you reach such an altitude.

In summer, there are 3 most famous sights: the pine trees, the clouds above and the sunrise. (@Fashionmimo)

The weather was so nice when we climbed up the peak so we missed the clouds. However, in the morning we could enjoy another mysterious scenery when the fog was not yet dispersed. (@Fashionmimo)

The Villages

There are 2 old villages near Huangshan, one called Hong Cun, another called Xi Di. Both of them thrived in the Ming Dynasty. In An-Hui Province, most people who thrived their business would help to develop their own villages.

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.

When I think about vintage fashion, the idea of A-Line skirt pops up first, and then denim. (@Fashionmimo)

The cotton white shirt from M&S has become my favourite in this summer. (@Fashionmimo)

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)

All white outfits are always my favourite. The glamour of white fits every season, always trendy.

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?

Floret flowers printed on the silk dress. We all know that ‘less is more’, and this also applies to flourish elements. Hence I would pay more attention on the texture. (@Fashionmimo)
