Hug me tight

I have been seeing midi skirts around for a very long time but to be honest, I am afraid to wear any kind of skirts or dresses in general because I am quite conscious about my bottom half. Plus I have a feeling that midi skirts “chop off” your legs considerably due to the awkward length, so I have just been sitting admiring those with amazing legs who can pull it off.

However, lately I have been trying to be more adventurous with my fashion choices, and between all the skirt lengths, I think I am most comfortable with midi, specifically the figure hugging midi skirt. I think it is the most flattering of all. I looked around for inspiration and of course, the first place (or rather person) I looked at is Miranda Kerr, one of my biggest style idols.

I love how she wears both plain and textured or printed midi skirts so elegantly and effortlessly. These will be my go-to pairings when I do my internship during the summer, very professional and stylish. A true no-brainer.

However, I don’t want to and don’t have that many occasions to be so dressed up, so I looked for more casual ways to pair the hugging midi skirt:

Above are two pairings that I definitely want to try to wear during my vacation. Very chic and casual.

I have already got myself a stretchy navy midi skirt from Boohoo. I figured it’s better to start with basic and simple pieces. Once I get comfortable with it, I will move on to more adventurous pieces.

Navy midi skirt from Boohoo. They also have an amazing selection of midi skirts in various colours and patterns. I actually regret that I didn’t get more colours. Still, I can’t wait to try pairings with this skirt.

The perfect backpack

I have always been fond of backpacks. In fact, I have worn backpacks throughout my school years and have never been sick of them. The necessity to own a backpack was especially urgent when I came to the UK for college. Since I travel around quite a lot, a backpack seems to be the most sensible choice. However, my current floral backpack (below), as adorable as it is, seem to be only suitable for school to carry a few notes and a bottle of water.

Backpack from Claire’s (I actually got on sale. This backpack and another warm yellow sling bag cost me £10 in total! And Claire’s really carries an amazing range of accessories)

However, I still need a backpack that is more suitable for travelling and carrying a more substantial amount of things, yet still stylish. The current range of backpacks available on the market seem to have only one or the other: comfort or style. I almost gave up until I set my eyes on the Fjallraven Kanken.

The Swedish brand have been standing strong for over 50 years and the iconic backpack is slowly making its way into the fashion world. Not only is it suitable for travelling, designed in a way to make carrying a relatively heavy load more easy on the shoulders, it is water resistant and also comes in an amazing range of colours. Every single shade of colour used is so classy and eye-pleasing. Believe me, I would get every single one of them if I could.

After doing substantial research and deliberating, I decided to get the classic Kanken in warm yellow like below (in the hope to brighten the English weather).

I will do a review on the bag once I get it, and also the website I got it from.

Thanks for reading and have a great day ahead.

The perfect summer romper / playsuit

It’s not actually summer in the UK, not to me anyway. It got slightly warmer during the short 2 weeks of “spring”, but these days have been so windy and rainy that it feels like the weather has decided to skip summer entirely and go straight into fall.

But no worries, I’m going back to Vietnam soon, and then spend a few days in Bangkok and Pataya, Thailand for a getaway. In 2 weeks time I’ll be seeing sunshine and the beach. See you soon shorts and skirts, you’ve been missed.

However, the item I am looking forward to wearing the most during this summer is the romper (or playsuit, I don’t really know the difference).

Such a brilliant and chic way to wear romper. I have a similar romper (below) and I can’t wait to try this pairing on my holiday trip.
