I'm here I'm here ! Aloha from Huntington Beach, California. For the next two weeks I will be in my personal paradise. I have a little list of things I want to do, but most mornings I will hopefully be sitting here in my aunt's beyond lovely kitchen blogging away. I don't really have any pictures as I've only just landed, but by tonight I should have some nice shots. It's such a wonderful place and I'm desperate to call it my home someday.
As for the outfit, this is obviously not Californian; I have quite a few outfit of the day posts to catch up on, but I'm getting there :)
I wore this for some patriotic holiday a while ago. I didn't even mean to wear it for patriotic purposes, it kind of just happened, as always does with me.
The blazer is a very cool vintage piece. I refuse to take shoulder pads out of anything old I buy, and I love the exaggerated shoulders anyhow. It is becoming popular again as far as I've seen.
The pants are actually made of cotton. I've been wanting - and still want - white denim. I saw these in H&M, and they fit really nicely, so they are doing the job until I get my white denim. The one issue is they are extremely see through in the sense that nude panties are an absolute must, and should I ever get wet in them... we just won't talk about that.
Lastly are my shoesies. One of my favourite pairs, I love the cut of the straps; they're very edgy and sleek.
On a final note. The opening ceremony was pretty amazing. Beijing's is my personal favorite for its choreography and precision, but the message of this ceremony was timeless and touching, almost brought a tear to my eye.
Now I'm going to go exercise before doing some grocery shopping with my aunt. We have to pick up Italian goods for pizza night !
