There's a whole lot of pink in this outfit and it's a colour that I avoided a lot as a teenager (the angsty, eyeliner loving, band t-shirt loving teen would not have approved) but fast forward 10 years and I love it in all shades from frothy marshmallow to neon pink.

There has also been an awful lot of cake on my Instagram feed lately. February sees almost a weekly rotation of cakes in our household for my sister, cousins and my dad (which also means copious amounts of tea). I had planned to put them all in one post but dare I say it, I am almost bored of cake right now so here is just one!

My dad is currently on his way back to HK for a few weeks so we celebrated his birthday a little earlier. I'm rather jealous that he gets to spend his birthday in HK. He'll obviously be treated to a wonderful HK style buffet dinner (dreaming of all the seafood) and perhaps a cake from the awesome Thomas Trillion (see this post for some pics too!) in Tin Hau - just a stones throw from our family's apartment in North Point. I'm hoping he brings me back some snacks - namely green tea Kit Kats and Muji candy.

  11. You look lovely in pink, Winnie! I also love the shoes! I've been trying to find the perfect brogues that doesn't make me feel like a golf player or an old person. I just can't pull them off! I reckon I need to try them in a different colour like the ones you've got on, they are a gorgeous colour! Love 'em! x

  12. How does Thomas make those perforated ball cakes? I can't get enough of his designs on that website. I also wish I could go back home to China for my bday! You look great in pink, and I'm not surprised that you embraced the hot pink shade in the pictures since it really pops against your skin tone.

  14. You look great! I always feel that because of my light skin and eyes I can't pull off pink without it looking forced, but it looks amazing on you.

  16. When I was young, I was a right tomboy- I literally remember being in a 'tomboy club' when I was eight and we were banned if we owned anything frilly or liked the colour pink... Now, like you, I embrace the gorgeous colour! This outfit looks super lovely on you, especially the jumper and I also love those shoes! And as for that cake, it looks amaaazing!

  18. Haha 'some cake' is such an understatement then. Boo why didn't you just hide yourself in your dad's suitcase and come visit me? Your family is so traditional Chinese- even the cake is the classic HK style ones! I'm in CWB now so super close to you! When you visit that is. :)

  26. Winnie - no way, I've that skirt and literally just wore it with a pink blouse last week! Great minds eh? I even took photos for an outfit post although I'm not sure if I like them enough to share as the lighting is a bit off. So funny though! I love the skirt, my parents live next to a river filled with swans and I am a sucker for anything with swans on! XX
