Things You Do Not Want to Miss in Nara, Japan

Nara, often bypassed by tourists either heading straight to Kyoto or Osaka, is Japan’s first permanent capital city and definitely a place not to be missed! Not only it owns a lot of UNESCO historical sites, such as Daibutsu, Todai-ji, one of the most majestic sights in Japan. Nara is also well-known for its wild and tame deers running everywhere (YES you can easily spot them)! Most important, Nara can be explored in a day or two! Hence, if you want to indulge yourself in a peaceful and scenic place, make sure you pay Nara a visit!

When we think of floral print, instantly we think of Spring. Cuz what else can be more perfect than floral patterns to associate our outfits with the Cherry Blossom season?

But now, floral prints can be worn for any season, depending on the colors, fabric and print you pick! You’ve probably noticed that one of the massive trend in A/W 16 is floral prints. So, you can now literally don your favourite floral pieces 24/7 and nobody is gonna judge you!

When it comes to buying clothes, yes I do love trendy pieces but I love to invest in clothes with versatility even more. This shows why I picked this black floral dress as the colour and length gives me the ease to cruise into any occasion and season effortlessly. All I have to do is jazz up with different accessories.

I bought this maxi last December during a Zara sales and I got to say I get a great deal for such an amazing quality! This maxi dress which crafted with super lightweight and airy fabric is great for the scorching hot weather and also a perfect piece for layering during the cosy season. it comes with two layers. The inner layer is a simple scoop neck spaghetti short bodycon dress. While the outer-layer which crafted with sheer chiffon is shaped in a form of ruffle neck, sleeveless bodice, and a billowy high low maxi skirt with some ruffle hem. Oh dear, ruffle my weakness how can I not purchase this frock!  (if you’ve come across my previous posts, you’ll know how much I’m obsessed with them!)

Not to forget the highlight of this dress is the beautiful roses that dancing all over the black backdrop, instantly injects whimsical and romantic accents!

Another thing I’m totally vibin’ over this frock is the sheer chiffon that shows off my legs without really bearing it all. Creates that peekaboo style and make my legs look slender tho.

For this look, instead of being dressy from head to toe. I teamed it with my crisp white Adidas Super Star instead of heels. I then finished off this look with a pink mini chain crossbody.

Frog Hill Gua Perahu – Prepare to be Mesmerized by Its Beauty

Frog Hill which is also known as Gua Perahu or Gua Petai is an abandoned quarry which located in Tasek Gelugor, Bukit Mertajam. It is largely flat and surrounded by rice fields, clumps of trees and houses. You can even spot the trains pass by (every 15-20 minutes I guess) as the railway is just few kilometers beside the Frog Hill.

Although Frog Hill is secluded from the public eye, it has already gained so many praises thanks to the power of social media! Keep reading and you’ll find out how scenic is this place.

I used to be the girl who extremely afraid of wearing colors especially those refulgent ones. Afraid of the bright colors might not complement my skin tone and make me look extremely odd. But, after some experiments, I started to embrace colors. As long as you team it with the right color, BAAAM you’ll look great! Recently, I’ve been obsessed with the color combo of mustard yellow and black as it gives off the Spring/ Summer vibe. Besides, yellow is seriously a happy color that instantly enliven your day!

Mustard yellow has been making its entrance to the runways since last Fall and it continues to dominate the Spring/ Summer runways as Yellow is one of the on-trend colors in 2017. Ranging from bright lemon yellow to mustard, you are sure to find the perfect shades that look good on you!

For this look, I wore a mustard yellow ruffle long sleeve top. Since the top is quite sheer, I wore a cami top underneath. Then, I team this top with my trustworthy pair of black mom jeans. To add a splash of edge, I added a black leather statement belt featuring studded detailing. I finished off this look with a pair of black mules and carry a burgundy shoulder bag.

Things to Do in Osaka for First-Timers

Japan has never been in my travel wishlist even though my favourite cuisine is Japanese food (pretty ironic isn’t it). However, I am absolutely glad that I’ve paid a visit there with my family last year. Japan does not disappoint me, in fact it exceeded my expectations. The food, the people, the architecture, the culture, — it was bliss. I’ve visited Osaka, Nara, and Kyoto during my trip, but I’ll be breaking down the content into 3 different articles. So, if you want to check out those posts, stay tune!

It’s Ruffle, Baby

topshop poplin ruffle shirt levi jeans mango belt coach chain crossbodyRuffles were having a BIG moment in 2016 and the game is still going strong this season, which I am absolutely thankful for as I’m definitely the “rufflemaniac” who just couldn’t get enough of ruffles.

If you have come across fashion weeks, or trend reports you probably notice that it is difficult for us to find a fashion runway that didn’t feature a little bit of flounce. So, if you’re still hesitate whether you should get your hands on, you should definitely give it a try!

Last year, ruffles were widely to be seen on dresses or chiffon blouse, but this season they were presented in unusual fabrications such as sweaters, leather skirts, or even the on the classic button down shirt.

Ruffles have the tendency to be feminine, romantic, and a little bit dressed up.  For this look, I’ve decided to combine the eye-catching statement piece (ruffle button down shirt) with a basic (skinny jeans) to create that perfect balance. To inject a sense of edge, I wore a statement belt, and carried a chain crossbody.

The ruffle button shirt – I fell for this ruffle shirt at first sight and decided to purchase it for my graduation. This white button down shirt is versatile as you can easily dress it up and down depending on the occasion. And thanks to its ruffles and small cutout detailing on the back, this elevated button down shirt is definitely an eye-catcher and balances between being basic but yet a statement piece.
