We’re roadtripping again! T and I are driving to LA today! That’s Los Angeles, not Louisiana. He’s showcasing Axiom Verge at E3 and I get to hang out with my pals! The event is a 3-day affair but he has business to attend to so we’re in LA earlier. This was supposed to be a much longer trip with us going to England for a wedding after E3 ends next Thursday but you know, life throws curveballs at us every so often and it’s no longer feasible for us to do that… Ah well…

Anyway, it’s so awesomely awesome that we found a doggy sitter for Max through dogvacay.com – when we were in LA with him the last time we stayed in a doggie-friendly hotel and brought him to a nice lady on dogvacay.com who took care of him in the day while we were out. Since this is a work trip and T has been provided with accommodation near the conference venue, we decided that Max should stay in Las Vegas with someone. We set up a play date earlier and he got along really well with the dog sitter’s Black Lab – same breed!

So anyway, I’ve packed with me 4 HELL BUNNY dresses and 2 t-shirts for this trip. If I’m not wearing any of those dresses, it’ll be this pair of denim shorts. Perfect for summer!

And this post was inspired by Curves and Chaos writing about a bohemian-inspired outfit. It is rather different from what I usually wear but it’s also not everyday that I go on a roadtrip! If you’re going to be driving for hours, you should always dress comfortably right?

This is a weird one for a fashion post but not unusual for a wastedfashion post. I wore this outfit last Sunday when T and I took Max the Maximum Dog out to Red Rock Canyon for a leash-free run. Yes, I hiked for about 40 minutes along a trail that was a prehistoric seabed. It was a moderate hike and we didn’t finish the trail. It was relatively easy with mild slopes so I could do it in this outfit. Heehee…

What I wore last Sunday to hike the Red Rock Canyon Calico Tanks:

Top: Silver sweater with hearts from DELIA*S

Bottom: Navy tulle skirt with diamante from FAITH21 (former name for Forever21+)

Accessories: Silver and green beads layered necklace from ACCESSORIZE

Footwear: Women’s Fastpack Paceline Mid Hiking Boot from TIMBERLAND

20131112-185903.jpgI strongly recommend these boots for the style, fit and price (I paid USD60). They’re so easy to walk in and also, check out Red Rock Canyon too! I should do a post on our hike soon.

I am so inspired by the artwork on the Level 3 community wall at Esplanade! I am going to attempt to take outfit photos everyday for the next few weeks!

It’s called Weaving Dreams in the Wind and the dream catchers were made by participants from several welfare homes and organizations, facilitated by Mintio and Kabul (Singapore/Indonesia). There are a total of 3 walls and I’ve only taken photos in front on one!

Thanks again Sian Eng for the photos!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Red/White strappy floral dress from Forever 21 Plus.

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Red beads and cowry shell handmade necklace from herphotoblog by Seraphina & Co

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA
