Fall Dressing In Shorts X 2

We have a bit of a temperature drop–not a lot but just a little bit. So here I am continuing to show you some fall dressing with shorts this time around. Yes, it’s October 25, and we’re still able to comfortably wear shorts. Yet, again, I embrace different colors and textures to adjust to fall dressing. Here I have two very fall like outfits, yet I am wearing shorts–in this example, cutoffs to be more precise. Here’s to our amazing Hong Kong weather and my favorite pair of clothing–my Wrangler DIY jean shorts!

I bet you were wondering…where are the shorts?! Well, whenever the hemline of my shift dress feels a little too short, I simply layer a pair of shorts underneath. It must have been a Friday when I wore this outfit because I only ever wear denim to work/school on Fridays.

I’ve been totally digging the one side earring lately–especially with my asymmetrical bob. In this instance, I wore both of my silver Ganesh earrings on my left ear. I loved how they jangled against one another all day long. Also, this embellished jacket–one of my first DIY jean jackets–is one of my faves. I love wearing this jacket, and yes our temperature, especially indoors with air conditioning, requires a jacket. A denim option is just the right piece.

Are you Gucci? That’s a saying my daughter has started asking. It’s suppose to mean, “Are you good.” In my Gucci-eque sweatshirt, yes I am good! I picked up this sweatshirt while Kevin and I were on our summer road trip along California’s coast. There happened to be a Forever 21 on Santa Barbara’s Main Street, and I was allowed a wee bit of time while Kevin roamed around. When I saw this cute bumble bee, bright floral number with the green striped hem, I instantly thought of Gucci, and I instantly knew I had to have it! Am I Gucci? Oh yes!

I had to have this bag. I had to! We were living in India, and on the weekends we would go to the J.W. Marriot and just chill by the pool. The J.W. had three pools: a kiddie pool with a fun slide for our then toddlers, a main pool that was just sublime, and a small salt water pool hidden away in the corner. By the time the kids started getting older we’d head over to the hidden salt water pool. There was a very handsome Spanish couple that would do the same. Oh, would I stare at that Spanish woman! To put it mildly, she was drop dead gorgeous! Anyway, back to the bag…. she owned it. I finally got the gumption to ask where she got it–of course the Spanish brand, Zara. Well, the moment I was at a Zara during our next trip out of India, I saw the BAG! I bought it without hesitation. I’ve had it ever since. And with a style story connected to this beautiful loden green bag, it’s unlikely we will ever part ways. It reminds me of that very stunning Spaniard!

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!
