Fashion On The Move: Floral Lace Shorts, Hong Kong
As I ramble through the city of Dim Sum (a.k.a Hong Kong), popping by Kowloon Park sounds like a plan for I cannot be eating all the time; though I really wanted to stuff myself silly with dim sum 24/7- don’t get me started on the gnawing of hunger for those glorious tiny dumplings of gold.
The park is just a stone’s throw away from my hotel- literally. A huge park with quite a bit of activities to keep people occupied; and an OOTD can be one of the many activities right? 😀
Hong Kong’s climate is just like back home- sweltering. Maybe not as humid, but definitely unrelenting to impel me to scramble and seek refuge in air conditioning. During this period, it is imperative to pack lots of outfits that are weather-friendly to beat the summer heat!
This floral lace shorts was a love at first sight. I have always wanted a pair, but they were always way too over my budget. What can I say, this was fate. Humbly hung on the lower shelf- definitely not within my peripheral version, I was drawn to its royal blue and meticulous embellishment. Furthermore, the price was definitely within, if not lower than, my budget! Oh girl, you are so coming home with me!
I reckon good things come to those who wait? This pair of lace shorts was unique (at least to me). At that time, I have yet to stumble upon such design sewed on this type of light weighted fabric with such bright colour.
The ones I usually see are in pale beige, and the material of the shorts are usually pretty thick and heavy- thus the expensive price. On the contrary, this light weighted shorts with detailed embroidery screams perfect for summer vogue!
I love bottoms with detailing, as I can effortlessly pull a simple (cropped) top from the closet with minimal accessories; and yet looking fashion-decent? Haha… 😀 The statement piece is the shorts after all right?
As there was loads of walking involved, my pink lace flats from H&M had to come out from my luggage and parade on the streets of Hong Kong. Super comfy pair of lace flats, that is congenial to the entire outfit- since I have the whole lace theme going on.
It’s all about being confident in the clothes you wear and everything will fall into place.
