Hello Sunshine!

1 May 2012




After weeks of waiting for it to warm up here Spring finally came and in the blink of an eye, summer has too. The seasons in Korea always seem to change very suddenly, no more than two weeks ago I was wrapping up with jackets and scarves, now I'm peeling off layers and exposing some seriously pasty legs to the world. 

Apart from feeling like I'm almost glowing white, I couldn't be happier about the arrival of summer!

I'm excited about dressing for the warmer weather. Winter is layers, dark colours, wrapping up against the weather and feeling constricted. I'm ready for summer now, the florals, the bright color combinations and easy feminine styles. Summer dressing is somehow more effortless and relaxed. I can't wait to delve into my wardrobe and start wearing my floaty blouses, long and flowing maxi dresses, cute camis and wedges with frilly skirts. 

I welcomed in the first of the hazy summer days by going for a picnic in the park wearing the easiest, most timeless summer classic, the blue denim skirt

No, it's not cutting edge fashion. No, it's not a 'wow' piece. Actually, it's nothing special but that's where the beauty of it is, in it's simplicity!

It's relaxed, dependable, comfortable and versatile. You can wear a denim skirt almost any way you want. Since we were only heading to the park I paired mine with a white embroidered blouse, some bright accessories and picked up the handbag that happened to currently have all my junk in it. 

Casual and easy.

Bring on the warm summer evening strolls, fun weekends spent at the beach, dining al fresco, lazing around in the park with a picnic and a bottle of wine... Oh, and a tan....please!


Sunglasses - Chloe.  Necklace - Mikey.  Lipgloss - Estee Lauder 'Sun Burst' (accidental but what a fitting name, huh?!)
Bag - Miu Miu.  Denim Skirt - Diesel.  Emroidered blouse - H&M.
Picnic: Salad and Sandwich - The shop by our apartment (no domestic goddesses around here when the sun's out!)  Mini Eggs - All the way from England (Thanks mum!)


What do you look forward to when summer rolls around?

  2. Why are your photos so pretty? :) I'm glad you're enjoying the change of weather. It's an ugly day here with lots of rain so I'm kind of jealous. I have yet to wear a skirt since it's still pretty cold in Massachusetts. I love that skirt on you and just so you know I'm trying to hunt down that watch. I've been eyeing it for a while on your posts, but I can't seem to find it online! :(

    Hope you have a great rest of the week! <3

    1. I bought it here in Korea. The model number is NY4913.

      It's on this site:
      http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_SPM6103212007P?prdNo=1&blockNo=1&blockType=G1

      You should be able to find it a bit cheaper than that though I think since it's been out a little while :)

      Sorry you're weather isn't so great, I hope it gets a bit better soon! Hope you have a nice rest of your week too! x

  3. a simple denim skirt is the great must-have of every girl, it can help in some dilemmas like "omg what to wear" and so on - just find your skirt and combine it with cool blouses :)
    lovely sunglasses ^^

    1. Thank you sweetie :) The necklace is actually a very long one but I doubled it up to make it like this. I love it because it's made of real stone and very heavy, along with the bright colour too!

  26. That's such an adorable outfit! *That* is what I look forward to. being able to wear light clothing and enjoy the lovely weather, rather than layers and layers of stuff because it's freezing outside!
