Spring is most definitely here. Out with the camel coats and knee high boots and in with the porous cardigan and ankle boots. I really like spring. Not only are flowers in full bloom (is anyone in the mood for hanabi [cherry blossom viewing] in the aftermath of the earthquake in Japan?), it features white (my favourite colour) most prominently. It's light and airy, super comfortable. I don't quite get the cardigans for outdoors though. It's getting really warm here!
The looks for this season includes a slouchy top (loose knits/bohemian print/ethnic print/button front checkered blouse) and a cute pair of shorts (pumpkin shaped/denim). What's not to love? Everything is loose and comfy.
Translucent maxi skirts are still in. I like them too, but it's too warm to wear them IMHO. Plus they will go out of season... maybe 2 months later.
I love this look. Seriously. Super love this cardigan though I saw it on a sales assistant at H&M in... January I think.
Apart from looking really casual, I guess this is the closest u can get to being fashionable at the workplace. Slits at one side. Asymmetrical hem.
I guess other office-friendly outfits include dresses with little flower/polka dots/peter pan collar, lace (yes, still in), maxi dress (STILL in), flare pants, cropped pants and white beach dresses. Actually, I personally think the best way to make a look more formal is a fancy cardigan/blazer.
Anyway, I decided to end my cheapskateness and go buy a HK edition of ViVi. To my horror, they are different from ViVi Japan! I naively thought it's just a direct translation of the Japanese pages with some exceptions since they provided the price of some items in HKD. Should I invest in a proper ViVi Japan in future?
