So the following weekend I will be lounging around in my bikini, sipping fresh coconut juice and enjoying the beach because I will be in Bali! Even though it is a short one, I am so excited for this trip! I have not been to Bali since I was really young, a lot has changed and I cannot wait to see the immense development. Then off I go, back home to Jakarta for 10 days. I'm planning to have a post dedicated to packing for tropical destination, so stay tuned! And if you haven't, follow my instagram for quick updates.

This Summer I have been obsessing over tops that reveal the shoulders. It gives a hint of sexiness and glamour, which I love. So I can easily say that off the shoulder tops, especially cropped ones, are my #1 summer essential for 2014/2015.
 If you have been reading my blog or following me on instagram, then you probably notice that I am absolutely obsessed with Beginning Boutique. Both the top and shorts are from them, and I feel like they're a good investment, especially the top! I have worn this top all day everyday (I'm a tad exaggerating), throughout the summer. I love pairing it with a high waisted bottom, hence I chose this shorts to go along with it, so I can hide my food baby.

Valentine;s Day Outfit Ideas #3 - Dinner for Two

Valentine's Day is just around the corner? Any plans yet?
I have listed a few ideas on the previous posts along with appropriate outfits. Perhaps a romantic picnic or a day trip to the spa? Or simply have a girls' day and night out. As you may have already figured out from the title, the third and last Valentine's Outfit Ideas post is dedicated for those who are planning to have a romantic dinner date. The most common, obvious but classic and sweet plan for the event.

One of the most well known rule in fashion is that "opposites attract", even Paula Abdul has a song named after this. So when involving a peplum top, which has a piece of fabric attached to the waistline as a full flounce, the first thing you think about is pairing it with a tight fitting bottom such as a bodycon skirt or skinny pants. One night I was trying on clothes in my wardrobe and randomly I decided to combine both these pieces together which I would not do normally because both has a distinct flared silhouette. I fell in love with the look straight away because somehow those two pieces just blend and the two together look like a dress. Perhaps the identical material which they both share is one of the factors which made the look work.

Valentine's Day Outfit Ideas #2 - Romantic Outtings

5.2.15

When planning this series of posts, I thought of the things people would normally do on Valentine's Day (NB: I am no Valentine expert). I have always thought that a picnic is the definition of romance (when it's just the two of you obviously). Sitting on top of a checkered rug, eating homemade sandwiches or quiches or other fancy food... Or if you are not really into cooking and are looking for a fancier version, a day trip to a winery or basically anywhere can be an alternative.

To play along with the romantic theme, I chose this midi skirt which is definitely in season. People are ditching the minis and turning towards the midis. A full midi skirt has a very captivating and enchanting look. It provides the whole outfit with a nice romantic twist. It can be quite tricky when it comes to skirt because one type of skirt may not please everyone. So here are some tips to wear midi skirts:
1. Wear it high-waisted - Now I personally believe that any high-waisted items give the illusion of longer legs because the material starts at the waist. And at the same time it also emphasise the waist for a more curvaceous silhouette, especially when worn with a belt. 

2.  Try them on or shop at the "petite" section - for shorter people like me, definitely try them on first and see how long the skirt is because if it's too long then the midi skirt will become a maxi skirt instead. 

3. Wear it with some sort of heels (or platforms) - similar to the first reason, this just elongates the legs.
