after the rain.

madewell denim shirt, giordano top, bcbg skirt, papermint bag and shoes.

Taking advantage of the clear blue skies that appeared after the typhoon a couple weeks ago. The bag and shoes are two of my favourite pieces that I purchased last month while hunting through summer sales. Finally my hunt for a small, structured nude leather bag is over...it came in black as well which was tempting, but I've been trying (key word: trying) to buy less black. Which resulted in me unconsciously buying only white clothing in the past month. Trying to compensate by choosing the opposite of black I guess.
The braid is also courtesy of my mother (who was visiting HK at the time). Seeing as I am completely inept at doing my hair, and uncoordinated in general...french braids won't appear on this blog too often. Unfortunately.
