Splatters in Seattle

I bought new summer boots–in hopes that if my feet are warm, maybe I can wear more summery clothes like shorts, skirts, and sundresses. Today was our first day home for a 3 week vacation in the States, and it was warm! The white booties kept me warm, and I barely ever needed my jacket!

I barely wore my jacket today! It was a beautiful sun-shining day--perfect for celebrating both Father's Day and Kevin's birthday!

The only thing missing on this almost perfect sundress are some pockets.

The backwards cowl neck on this dress dresses it up if need be while the white booties "punk" it up--as stated by my bro.

Ocean Park Gear

I brought shades--wishful thinking.

I brought shades–wishful thinking. I picked them up from the girls’ department at HM.

When you head out to Ocean Park, you are definitely in for some fun, so it’s best to be comfortable. Planning for the rain, now that’s something altogether different that I haven’t quite seemed to have figured out.

Sometimes my sister and I like something of the other so much that they we will take it off our back to give to the other. Thank you for this lovely tunic Julie!

OceanParkShorts

I seem to be living in these flower jean shorts from Forever21 this summer.

Chanel Lip Gloss in

Chanel Lip Gloss in Calypso I purchased in duty free on my way out of Beijing last year.

 

These gorgeous earrings are from this exquisite shop in India called Amrapali. Walking in there was like stepping into a museum. While living in Bombay there was an Amrapali shop a block away from where we lived in Juhu Beach.

Happy Father’s Day

Ocean Park in the Rain

We headed to Ocean Park today, but we were sent home with the rain that ensued. No worries though; we got in some good fun!

It’s pretty even in the rain, isn’t it?

What do you do when you can’t go on rides because the rain closes them? Why, you get a hotdog of course!

Insta Color

It’s fun to go through my Instagram feed and then compile some of the #ootd’s (outfits of the day). For example, check out all the color I found in the last month.

Started with MORP hosted in the HKIS HS Library. There were wigs strewn about for anyone up for some #insta fun!

Gigi and I also got ourselves some initials–I’m wearing her “M” here–which can also stand for my middle name, Marie.

 

Anything to wear a fancy dress! Here's what I wore to HKIS' Prom.

First Outfit of the Summer

FirstDayofSummer3Aside from being able to take better pictures of Kremb de la Kremb adventures, part of the reason I invested in a new camera was to try to increase my posts of one of my other favorite passions: fashion! Well it’s time to start! Here’s an outfit post of my first day of summer, 2013.

I was going for something vibrant so that my good friend Khush would be able to find me in the massive Dragon Boat crowd to be found on this major Hong Kong public holiday. And, of course pairing bright red with a neutral like cheetah shorts seemed like the perfect ensemble.

It's definitely not an accessory, but we seem to always leave the house with a soda water in hand. I should be in an ad! Ha!

I read on Song of Style that a sure way to get beachy waves is to twirl each side up. I tried it out, and it totally worked! A new trick:D

I am not really sure how I made this gif, but it’s pretty fun!
