Fairy Dust

Happy New Year 2015! Welcome back to my blog -- after multiple times saying this again *hiatus mode*. Seems like 2015 marks the most dramatic year in my whole life. Significant things keep occurring though it is only January! 

I made it through Hong Kong - Melbourne - Sydney - New Zealand (North Island) tour and now I am back in Chicago. I feel so blessed that I can see many beautiful things and meet amazing people around. I also feel through the trip I get closer to my family members. 

It's January in Chicago, just live everywhere else, and it is cold. Luckily the time I got in, the temperature raised significantly. I now can take picture with only sweater and skirt outside, yeah Chicagoans call 0 degree Celsius warm. You get it how cold it is here? The pictures below were taken last weekend when we have the Au Jong family came over for Grandpa's funeral. One of the coolest uncles I loves photography and he helped me shoot these pictures. I love it! The theme was classic-y, princess-y, fairy-y?

Thanks all for visiting again! I hope your winter is happy, pretty, and warm <3 p="">

Frozen

I am back this Winter season, this time the theme of my outfit is Frozen. For thanksgiving dinner this year, I decided to go sort of classic. I actually really love maxi A-line skirt with graphics on it: this skirt is one of my favorites! Basic white shirt and black cardigan would always fit into this style! A sparkle of jeweled head band helped me to create the fairy tale look. The color just froze the whole outfit. 

Top - Forever 21, Cardigan - Forever 21, Skirt - Chic Wish, Boots - Ross, Necklace - Forever 21










Hope you enjoyed your thanksgiving break. I am wrapping up mine today - but I am ready for my month-long vacation to Hong Kong, Australia (Melbourne and Sydney), and New Zealand in two weeks! Will update you with my vacation posts!

Have a warm winter, my lovely readers!

Love,

Catherine.

Denim Stripes and Maxi Cardi

It is finally October! My second most favorite month of the year because I love Halloween! But the cold and the breeze start to get to me these days. I think this weekend is too cold, too cold to be the first week of October and I am not ready yet. I still want to wear shorts, dresses, sandals and no coat. Fortunately today was good, I could wear a bit of dress and cardigan. 

I got this dress last year when I went to Jakarta. I love it because I think it is different; it's made of denim material and the color is so delightful: light blue and white. It is indeed one of my fave, too bad it is just too thick to be worn during summer - but too bad the skirt is so mini so I was trying to endure some breeze and cold when I had these pictures taken. Thanks to my maxi cardigan from Forever XXI. I got these cardigans long before the dress, actually, I got this about 2 years ago. I don't think the maxi cardi style was quite out there, not many people except some bloggers actually wear it. In this case it was rather functional because it blocks some wind from the back of my legs, so the cold was not too bad at least. It was hard mixing and matching this cardi with some of my outfit, but what do you think about this combination? Oh by the way that head band of mine says 'Look at Me' - my aunt thought it is pretty narcissistic.
