Bow down to the No Tights Club y'all! I kid: this is another outfit I shot in 34 degree heat and humidity in Hong Kong. I never realised just how easy it is to prance around and pose in blissfully freezing England until I attempted outfit posts on hols ^_^" Sweat central. Hundreds of peeps swarming everywhere central.
While I was away, it turns out Jade was as well! Way back at the start of the summer, we decided to make sure our paths crossed while abroad so we ended up spending a darn good day exploring, eating and shopping together. All the things we do best. I'm kinda sad we didn't snap some photos together actually! I met Jade over at 又一城 Festival Walk, a supah expensive shopping centre that is literally attached to the Kowloon Tong MTR station. Did some wandering, mused at really-talented-ice-skaters, bought some tat and gadgets at Log-on and decided to head back to my end of town to show Jade the ropes.
One of my favourite things about Tsuen Wan is that it is the perfect (heh, I could be biased here!) blend of modern and rural, old and new. Surrounded by water, mountains, high rise buildings, market stalls and more, I never run out of things to do when I decide to leave my Octopus card at home and just leave my apartment.
I'm really surprised I'd never stumbled across this garden before. It's the Jockey Club Garden frequented mostly by the elder community of my district, but I fell in LOVE with it when Jade noticed it and we stepped in. The garden is designed in ancient Hakka styles, reminiscent of where my Mum grew up actually, with a beautiful pond/lake filled with koi and terrapins. There's something really peaceful, quixotic and refreshing about the garden, nestled literally in the heart of Tsuen Wan. Plus I couldn't stop attempting to show the terrapins photos of their distant relatives - Bertle and Eric ;)
Onto the outfit then! Black is pretty much outta the question in HK, as I quickly learnt. Too much heat. I adore the fit of this Daisy slogan tee and it does a good job of semi-promoting the blog! Tucked it into this pastel palm print skirt from F&F and whacked on some flats. Sandals could've worked better but I just don't do this planning ahead thing T____T I think I'm going to take this skirt to my sewing machine and cinch the waist in just a little bit more so it flares out more. #ProjectsIWontComplete
More Hong Kong posts to come. I wish I could keep blaming jet lag but it's already been a WEEK and I'm just lazy/busy/sleeping usually. Lovelove!
