Chilling Out

After my usual family day of Yum Cha and eating lots of dim sum, I returned home and sat out in the sun all day today. Watching my sister and cousin play in the garden.
Hailey did her Law revision...in her sunnies and Becky proceeded to squash my mom.I sat and read my book...
Cardi (Hong Kong) Belt (UO) Dress (Hong Kong) Shoes (Carvela) beads (Topshop)The dress was bought from a little shop in Tai Po in Hong Kong. It was originally sourced from Korea. It has a cute girly, ribbon pattern with lace detailing for the sleeves, pockets and around the neckline. It's a little long but belted, it's the perfect length.I played the Beck's album, Sea Change which always reminds me of Summer :) What are your favourite tunes to chill out to?

  7. what an adorable dress! Love the pics! Great that it was so sunny. I worked today and it was OK. Better than yesterday at the library.

    hmmm..what am I listening too? nada surf, spinto band, some tunes off the Skins soundtrack which is mainly intrumental stuff I like best..but I really want yeah yeah yeahs new stuff.. a friend promised me a copy of it..but not yet.

    Oh..thanks so much for the note. Possibly, I have an Alex Evans crush..I keep thinking of him when I write about Derrick..but in my other story blog..I see him as an anti-hero who isn't so fond that his boyfriend is befriending a girl he might have got pregnant. I guess that is a warped storyline.
