Hi everyone, hope you had an awesome 4th of July and are having a great week! It's gotten really hot, really quickly here in the last week or so. There is no doubt that summer is here! Commuting to and from work everyday has become a battle with the humidity and once you get to the office, the a/c is turned on so high that I always need to wear another layer indoors. Dressing for multiple climate conditions can prove to be a constant challenge, so I moved a modest collection of my sweaters, blazers and jackets to the office and built up a small but flexible wardrobe at work :P Luckily, on weekends there's always time to throw on something fun and enjoy the sun!

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! Work's been super busy, so it's definitely exciting to welcome the long weekend. What are your plans for the Independence Day long weekend? Last year I went to see the fireworks, but it was so crowded that I'm sure I saw more of everyone's heads than the fireworks :P This year I might try my luck on a rooftop somewhere. In preparation for NYC summer, I went to work today in this light, summer shirt dress.

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! This past weekend New York gave us gorgeous weather, perfect temperature, plenty of sunshine and a light breeze to top it all off! Sadly, I know these days are numbered, so you really have to take full advantage of them while you can. Pretty soon, we will be in the midst of scorching heat and muggy summer days. I thought a maxi dress would be perfect for this kind of weather and a short cruise along the Hudson river :)

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Summer is quickly approaching and sadly, so is the humidity. The weather in NYC has been really muggy during the week, with random bursts of rain and even thunderstorms. Thank goodness the weekends have been quite pleasant so far with plenty of sunshine, minus the stickiness. These shots were actually taken in Shanghai during my recent holiday. It was an accidental, yet delightful discovery of a little slice of serenity hidden in this city that never sleeps :)

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! I'm back from my two-week Asia trip and I can't wait to share all the things I found and loved. I had such an amazing time with my family and friends, exploring all the places I have and have never been to, climbed one of the seven wonders of the world, got plenty of shopping done, and of course indulged on some of my favorite foods that I grew up with :)

Hi everyone, happy Thursday! As you are reading this, I am probably on my way to the airport. It's been super busy leading up to this Shanghai / Beijing trip, but I can't wait to share my new discoveries and adventures. Please excuse some delays, as access to social media (including this blog) may be very limited while I'm over there. Anyway, the weather over the weekend was super nice (especially Sunday); our first taste of summer and what's to come. It was only right that I wear something equally as cheerful and sunny :)

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great week! One more week and I'm off to Shanghai & Beijing for two weeks! Yiippeee....bring on the holidays :) Work has been so busy that thinking or planning for this holiday has been put on the back burner. Despite this, I am looking forward to a much needed holiday to unwind and spend some quality time with my family! Every spring I like to welcome the season with fresh colors, soft neutrals and delicious sorbet shades to ease myself into summer. This spring is no different. I absolutely adore the color and cut of this moto jacket, super fresh and modern.

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a great day! I don't know about you, but I sure wish it was the weekend already. It's been a loooong week! Despite the rain, this spring has been quite pleasant with many days of glorious sunshine and parks filled with pretty cherry blossoms. I think in a couple of weeks time, they'll all be in full bloom. I had this breezy outfit on for those easy weekend brunches in the village with friends.

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Hope you are having a great day! Weather lately has been kinda humid with mixed showers and high winds. Overall, April has been really sporadic and unpredictable, but it is safe to say winter has finally left us. As you can see, I'm enjoying this summer outfit on an extremely warm spring day. This was taken in Brooklyn, during the start of the summer rooftop drinking/hangout session. One of my favorite things in the city during the summer - a great rooftop :) You get a great view of the city and in this particular case, a perfect view of Manhattan.

Hi everyone, a quick hello today. Hope you are having a fabulous day! It's not really spring till florals are out to play ;) As you can see, I am fully committed to this print and definitely not a stranger (see here & here). It's always hard for me to say no to a healthy dose of pretty floral when the sun's out and the weather is warm. It brings such happiness and cheer to my day, particularly on a tough day.

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! What a beautiful spring day! Looks like we are taking a small break from the April rain for some much needed sunshine. I absolutely adore days like this where the temperature is perfect to throw on a light trench, and who can say no to some gingham? :P I've been a little busy lately with work. Between starting a new job, welcoming a new season and planning the next getaway, life has been a little chaotic. I think a splash of blue might just bring some calm and peace to keep me focused.

Hi everyone, hope you are having a fantastic week! They say April showers bring May flowers, I sure hope so, cos there's nothing worse than a whole weekend filled with continuous rain. What do you do when the weather is not going your way? Spend it indoors browsing the Brooklyn museum and more importantly, wear something that will instantly cheer you up. At least, that was my rainy day remedy :)
