Sometimes, I really do love Shanghai. Among some things, I really love our big home here, I love the freedom of not having “social obligations”, I love the affordability of everything and I love living in the most convenient area of the whole city. However, the disgusting pollution and the fact that this is still China and generally people are slightly less civilised and modernised than I’d like them to be (cos duh it’s totally up to me), kind of makes it impossible to stay here long term. Not long after moving here, my friend Holly (also living in Shanghai and also from Hong Kong) talked about traveling often out of China as “sanity checks”. If the opportunity comes up, you really need to take some short trips like for a weekend or a couple of days out of China just to keep your reality in check and to remind yourself that there is more to life than China street food (like scallion pancakes and the cheapest xiao long baos in the world) and living in your home clothes at home all day.

Lucky for me, I do get to travel often (thankful every step of the way!!!!). A couple of weekends ago we headed down to Singapore actually for a short Converse work trip to attend the CONS PROJECT SINGAPORE event. I love going out to Singapore. I mean all the delicious (super affordable) food and getting to see my family and grandma is the best. I mean almost good enough that makes the unbearable heat slightly more bearable. And um..Krispy Kreme donuts?? Ughhhhh heaven!!!! ლ(◎∇◎ლ) – donut eyes!!!

Ice cream man!

These are what DREAMS are made of~~~

Last weekend in Shanghai was so epic. The weather was so perfectly sunny yet breezy and more importantly, it was our first weekend back in Shanghai being normal. We were basically out of town the whole of March and whilst I’m always so grateful and thankful that I get to travel as much as I do, sometimes I really just want to be at home, lounging in my yammies with Sumo tucked under my armpit. April is turning out to be another busy month with this week being spent in Singapore (Hiii Singapore!!) then the follow 2 weeks busy busy with my mom and sister coming to Shangies (FINALLY )

So anyway, back to our first real weekend in Shanghai, we rushed out to chase magic hour to shoot some new pieces I received from this amazing Hungarian designer, Dori Tomcsanyi. She is super playful with the cut and shapes that her pieces create and yknow how I feel about oversized boxy-ness! There are more girly silky and flowy pieces in the latest collection so make you check it out. I also picked up this palm leaf print silky boxy cropped top that is perfect for sweaty summers. Here I layered the neoprene mega oversized hood hoodie over the unzipped vest/dress over a tshirt and pencil skirt. I love the play of long and short when I layer the two neoprene mamas over each other, more interesting than just wearing them separately. I’ve been wearing the hoodie non-stop lately and am picturing layering the vest/dress over (or under) a leather jacket while the weather is still a little breezy!

P.S. Yay for “exposed ankles” as much as I’ll expose and yay for wide-angle lenses (ˊ˃ॣ~˂ˋॣ)«≈՞๑
