Lace, Ribbon and THAT skyline

Isn’t it terribly difficult getting back into a routine after you’ve taken a holiday? A friend of mine said I was suffering from homesickness rather than the holiday blues which I thought was really sweet! While I struggle with the fact that I won’t be back in Hong Kong for at least another year, here is an outfit post while I get my blogging-act together.

It features one of my favourite things that I bought while away in HK. The lace collar is such a girly and cute addition to any outfit and I’ve been hankering after one of these for a long time and was over the moon when I managed to find this in a boutique in Hong Kong.

Situated in one of many, MANY local mini malls that exist in HK, Laurustinus can be found in the Apple Mall in Tin Hau (opposite the MTR) which is only a stop away from Causeway Bay so not too out of the way if you’re around that area anyway. Worth mentioning is that malls like these usually open quite late averaging around 2pm/3pm, something I’ll mention again when I discuss where else I shopped! Luckily my family live quite near by so I took the opportunity to wander down there after dinner one evening and er…a couple of other trips after that! The shop itself is tiny (as is the norm for these kind of shops) and full of handpicked garments with stock mainly from Korea and Japan. Definitely worth a visit and Peggy the owner is wonderful to chat to too. The bag is also a new find and from Laforet Mall in Causeway Bay.

Given the recent trouble in the UK, I’ve found myself doing little else but watching the news and checking twitter for riot updates. Something I never, ever would have imagined myself doing and it makes me so angry and sad. I do hope that those from the affected areas stay safe!

Before I disappear to try and reorganise my HK photos (serious lack of touristy shots I’m afraid but plenty of food shots), let’s end this post with something that makes me smile! Introducing you guys to my favourite skyline in the world. Swoon!
