forget all you technicolor dreams

forget mother nature, because this is the way it is meant to be...

Polo & Racquet Club Black Bowtie Flats, rolled up denim shorts, thrifted colorful white summer hoodie, wooden string bracelets, blue philippines ceramics necklace, side ponytail 


How to describe my day? Ran errands, ran to school, ran to the post office to mail a letter to the USA and arrived my lecture 30 minutes late. Currently I'm in the college library, planning to study but of course, I'm sitting here writing this post for you guys (: 

The weather's been really hot these few days in Hong Kong. Hot and cold. This calls for a garment that can withstand both the sweltering heat, humidity, freezing air-conditioned lecture halls and constantly changing temperature. 

I did a quick hunt through my wardrobe and found this white summer hoodie that I bought last spring in a little hidden boutique somewhere in the city. It's simply gorgeous, functional and cute - the color white has a very summery feel (not to mention it reflects heat), the material is soft yet thin, so your skin can BREATHE and your sweat can cool, plus it's got amazing colors and patterns. It comes with an elastic hemming, so you can tuck it over your leggings or shorts. Very poofy indeed. 

Oh, and there's also a little feather and beads around the floral hood! 


I also did some photography around campus before my afternoon lecture...

main building of university (rumor has it there's a ghost!), my bag (also flowery, a coincidence) and water bottle, i caught my own shadow with wind blown messy hair, brick wall, greenery, self in mirror, cotton on leopard leggings and hoodie 

As you can see, I wore black leggings instead of shorts because it was nearly evening by the time I hiked my way up to campus, plus the air turns really chilly at night as it's not quite summer yet! Leggings work just as well as shorts, the black/ white contrast of the hoodie and its colors match.

And thank you so much to all who followed! It means the world to me, starting a new blog isn't easy and I've never done something like this before. I really enjoy taking pictures and creating beautiful snapshots of life, and it's great to be able to share little pieces and bits of my life to you lovely people. 

This song, and all you gorgeous readers, made my day:

Before I divorce my computer and get started on work, I want to share a little something I observed today as I was taking a break from photographing the campus. Made a little compilation below...
