How many of you are denim fans? I am not literally a denim lover, but I love my look today. As you all know Brisbane is turning into winter at the moment, a pair of jeans are the best choice for everyday look now. As much as I am not willing to let summer go, I love to wear my white wrinkled shirt, it is very soft and comfortable for the skin. To resist the on-and-off chilly wind, I dug out one of my favourite denim vests which I bought three years ago, in fact, I can’t get tired of wearing it, it matches well with a great range of items including maxi dresses, tees, shirtsbra tops. What I love the most are the pins on the shoulders and the distressed little details.

The idea of this look is to combine soft texture shirt with hardcore denim items to describe a girl who has strong appearance but a soft heart. While most of the trees are falling asleep, I am happy that I have captured some of the beautiful flowers before they wither.

More than once I asked myself, should I start my own blog?

I guess, the biggest fear is not being successful in terms of awareness and profit while so many capable fashion bloggers are our there.

Then, I ask myself again, what do I have to lose?

Almost nothing in terms of financial investment.

Also, I am doing something I love and I enjoy it. I won’t regret starting my blog, and if I never did, I might regret in the future. After reading thousands of other bloggers’ posts, I have been so inspired by all the amazing photos and words they shared. I have only earned a lot but never lose from blogging.

Like most bloggers, I love fashion, love express myself by styling, more importantly, I love all the beautiful and positive things in life. No matter how down life can be, it will not be forever. I influenced people around me since I was a little kid, I was once called “Vigorous Vitality” by an artist. Hopefully I can influence more people by sharing positivity of life rather than pure materials. Not only I provide the links of where my outfits can be bought, but also I share the path where positive energy can be created and gained by reaching out to those things that money can’t buy.

I love art, especially contemporary art, sometimes I paint, sometimes I color, most of the time I go to the galleries. There is a designer and art market during the first week of each month, coming to the market allows me to get fresh ideas and appreciates amazing artworks of local artists and designers. Today I dressed myself like a little artist with a little chic flavour. It took me 5 minutes to pick a very comfortable blue and white stripe cotton blouse, and for material contrast, I matched with a black leatherette shorts. To make this look a bit stand out, I selected fluffy animal print flats and a fur surface shoulder bag, as you know, it is winter in Australia.  The black silky lace on my neck brings out a sense of freedom. When the wind gets too strong, I like to tie up the blouse in front, which add a bit more chic to the look. It was a fun day at the market, I believe everyone has a little artist deep inside…

Those people who know me also know that I’m a leopard print freak, I have literally countless leopard print items, I feel like sharing some of them to you today. My laptop cover, my mugs, my bags, my shoes, my home wear, I not only love traditional brown color leopard, I’m also obsessed with leopard in other colors, for example black & white leopard, and pink leopard, my iPad, sports bra, and my lingeries. You might discover “leopards” in any corner of my place, it is difficult to collect all of them at once. Even right now I’m writing this blog and I just realized I have three pair of leopard sunglasses that I completely forgot about when I did the photos, LOL.

Some people told me that not everybody can rock leopard print style, I don’t agree. For me, I like to match with dark color items, especially black, and better with some makeup on, such as bright or dark red lip color.

Now I’m going to share some photos of me wearing leopard print high heels and zebra print coat while I was pregnant for 8 months, I was wearing a black one shoulder body dress underneath for a night out.  YES! Pregnant woman can rock leopard print too.

I do always feel a little bit grumpy when Monday comes, especially it comes after the most relaxing day Sunday, this huge contrast can cause me headache. However, I have to start working, and say goodbye to my husband in the morning. Usually I like to wear dark color on Monday, a bit serious, a bit sophisticated, a bit indifferent, and it pretty much fits every role I’m playing in my careers.

 

I am happy that I found this blue roll-necked sweater, it is incredibly soft and flexible, the little open detail at the end of the sleeves is my favorite part of the design, it is super comfy to wear for work and casual during winter time. Black leather jacket is the forever star in my wardrobe, the one I picked today is a short and tight design, and it gives a nice curve of the upper body shape. Black leather boots might be too early to wear in Brisbane, but you will thank them after sunset, besides, they make the skinny jeans look even skinnier. To complete this look, I match with a black canvas bucket bag with silver circle details, plus some black and silver rings, I love big rings 😛

 

What’s your Monday look?

If I’m not going to a special event, my daily styling takes me only 5 minutes. I know sometimes you might stand in front of your overcrowded closet and wondering why there is nothing you can wear, trust me, it happens to everyone.

However, if you practice hard and enough on your personal styling, you will be able to use your items more effective and speed up the styling process and step out of the house on time.

One of my simplest style formulas is “WHITE TOP + BLUE JEANS + WHITE SHOES = CASUAL STYLE”

Today I chose this white California Burnout Tee, love the soft and super light material; the open back design is the highlight, which allows a little exposure of my back, a black bra with unique back design adds some degree of contrast and reflects multi layers from the back of the look.

I love distressed jeans, they help cover the flaws of my shape, more importantly they are fun to wear, and I can never get tired of them.

Any white sneakers can go with this look; I picked Liam Sneaker because I am obsessed with the golden heel detail and the soft cushioning comfort.

I probably decided on this overall look in 2 minutes, and the nest 3 munities I spent on selecting my accessories. A white frame sunglasses was picked to brighten my entire look, a rectangle animal print bag brings a little lavish to the style. Bags can definitely play a significant part in the look; you can go with a bright color mini shoulder bag, or a black leather tote.

Time’s up, ready to go. Don’t hesitate to go grab a coffee or brunch down the road just because you have no idea how long it’s going to take to get your style up. You only need 5 minutes.

I think winter in Brisbane provides a great platform for fashion styling lovers, the weather is not too hot or too cold. My biggest love of this season is the orange colour off shoulder knit dress. The sunshine is warm enough so I can show my shoulders and legs, and when the cold braze passing by, the long sleeves and the warm knit material keeps me warm.

I love orange colour since I was a child, it is bright like sunshine, warm like flame, and more importantly, it is stunning. Every time I dress orange, I attracted the most attention.

A pair of white sneakers is the ‘must have’ this year, it goes good with my dress during the day time.

Espresso martini, one of my favourite cocktails, made with coffee liqueur and Vodka, it is neither coffee nor martini, but it has the scent of both. Spanish seafood stew is my top pick for this winter, the juicy flavour of the fresh seafood nourishes my taste bud, and the warm soup stays in my tummy for a long time. I am enjoying the sunny winter with my family.
