Posted on

DSC_2152

Hello everyone, how y’all doing?!?! So sorry that I have been gone for so long. Seems like my one week vacation was extended to three weeks huh. After we got back from our trip to Montreal and Quebec, Mr. Photographer and I have been quite busy that we didn’t have time for photo shoot or blogging. We’re always on the go as we are prepping for the arrival of our new house (yes, we just bought a house and waiting for it to be built!).  And uh, I’ve to admit that I was slacking too, guess have to blame it on the “summer brain”, nothing much get done when the weather is so gorgeous out there…lol!!! I will definitely make up for the all the postings that I haven’t done in the last three weeks by the end of this month!

I wanted to share with you guys a belated birthday celebration that Mr. Photographer had for me on Friday. Why so late?! Well, on my actual birthday (July 14th), we were invited to our friend’s newly bought cottage for my birthday celebration at the beach earlier that day, and Mr. Photographer had planned to take me our for dinner that night. However, after driving for 4 hours and spending the whole day at the beach, swimming and playing water sports, we’re too exhausted to go out for a dinner as planned. I remember we ended going to bed super early that day and I wasn’t upset at all because that was definitely a mutual agreement. After all, Mr. Photographer promised to take me out for belated birthday dinner on Friday. Yay!

I was so looking forward to Friday the dinner and I wonder where he is going to take me this time. Honestly, it has been a long time since the two of us have been out for a dinner date night, so we took the chance to dress to the nines. I wanted a elegant and classy look, so I picked this little black dress that I got from H&M few months ago. I love the fabric, pattern and the fit of the dress, and with the price of $39 CAD, I couldn’t say no to this LBD. Mr. Photographer was shocked when I told him about the price of this dress, I couldn’t believe it either. I would say this is my favourite piece from H&M, and is among the higher quality items they have in store. I’m not sure if this dress is still available in store, but they do have this dress in light beige as shown on their website. Definitely check it out if you are looking for a dress in this style!

If you know me well, I love statement necklace and when I have a simple dress like this, how can I resist this gorgeous statement necklace that arrived just right before my birthday. The gemstones pastel pink necklace definitely add colour and fun to the entire look. Surprisingly, this necklace is not that heavy for its size and I was able to wear to it comfortably all night. That’s always a bonus when you’ve a big statement necklace like this one. DSC_2160

Feeling Blue :: Shift Dress with Gold Accessories

Posted on

DSC_1841

Feeling blue? No, not at all! I am doing great and I had an awesome day yesterday. I just felt like wearing something blue when I woke up in the morning, so I pulled out this cobalt blue shift dress that I got it during my mini honeymoon trip at Niagara Falls. It is just a very simple dress, but with some bold accessories like the statement necklace, it dressed up the dress instantly!

Hello everyone! Long time no see! So sorry that I haven’t respond to any emails or messages as I have been MIA for a week. I noticed that I’ve spent too many hours on my iPad and computer recently, to the point that I think I have an addiction to them. Hence, I’d planned a trip for digital detox, unplugged myself from screen time and immersed into the nature! I’m glad to be back and feel rejuvenated!

Under the Sea :: Graphic Shift Dress

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far. Thank you so much for all the lovely comments in the last few posts. Mr. Photographer and I were delighted reading all your comments and we will definitely try our very best to keep up with the posting and improve on the quality of the content.

SHIFT DRESS – One of my work outfits staple or I should say a must have in every woman closet. I wear it quite often and in any occasions because it is super comfy and very versatile. I think it is appropriate for a professional, casual or party environment.  It can be worn in all seasons: with boots and coats in fall, with leggings and sweaters in winter, scarves and heels/raining boots in spring, and sandals and hats in summer. Also, depending on the look you’d like to achieve, you can always play around with accessories such as wearing it with a belt to accentuate the waist, or adding a bright colourful scarf or a statement necklace to a plain solid shift dress.

Since the gorgeous print of under water sea creatures on my dress is already a statement, I chose a white blazer with minimal accessories to balance the look  and also made it more appropriate for the office. Of course, I can convert this dress from day to night easily with a pair of fancy heels, a clutch and some blings. I’m ready for date!
