Another week, another outfit post!

I'm so happy to finally be able to share regular outfits again. Feel so sad all the time that I can't shoot them every day like I did at University (a.k.a. the optimum time to be a slob and/or start a blog) but Hong Kong is a kinda apt place to get back into it, seeing as everyone loves a good camera and pose session.

This weekend I met up with fello HK blogger Shelley for the first time! We went all the way over to Sheung Wan for brunch and a wander around HK Island, and it was so fun. In fact we were blessed with amazing weather: beautifully balmy and sunny - in the middle of December! I think brunch is one of the main things I miss about England, that and the twinkly festive spirit ;____;

I absolutely adore this dress that I'm wearing. I bought it at Plata, who do some of the best clothes around, and it's so cute and almost nostalgia-invoking? I'm really inspired by the South Korean meets British (how ironic) style that Hong Kong is obsessed with at the moment. It feels quite reminiscent of how I used to dress way back in the day too: +50 reader points if you remember that post from the first time around!

The story behind these boots goes: I miss my little sister so much that I bought the exact same pair as her. No lie. I actually really got into man repeller-ish shoes this year and I love how sweet, girly, kitsch and clompy they are. They do, however, require an extra 5 minutes of Getting Ready Time in the AM. Must remember that so I don't have to sprint to the bus stop again...

As IF it is Christmas in little more than a week and a half. Currently my plans are to eat my body weight in food and then Skype my family as soon as they wake up. Fill me in on your holiday plans so I can feel less lonely?

  3. I didn't realise this was a dress at first! Aww I can't believe you're not back for Xmas! Don't worry, I'm not a Christmas person so I spend the day just chilling - it's only 24hours. I'll be with my nephews and they are sure to make time go by fast!

  8. It's so cute right? I'm kinda struggling with the whole Christmas abroad thing - no-one really realises that I'm living on my own so they think I'm being really dramatic. My colleagues are like, "oh it's fine, your parents can cook and it'll be just like home" haha. And Christmas is my event of the year, it tops my birthday and any other occasion!

  10. Aww no Mish, yeah I think Christmas tops a lot of people's list. Aww I'm sad for you, but I don't want to make you more sad! But hopefully next year, you'll be able to fly back or they can come over! Make sure you skype them and have things planned for your day xxx
