Summer aka shorts-season is almost over and soon it’ll be cardigan season (my favourite)! Got about 2 or 3 more weeks to bare legs – shorts and skirts, before I start covering up slowly. My favourite thing to wear right now are shorts. These denim shorts = best purchase this summer! Got it on sale at OLD NAVY for only $14 and I think I’ve worn them so much, they’ve practically paid for themselves!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Red butterfly-sleeved top with white embroidery from FOREVER21 PLUS

Accessories: Mint green & silver multi-strand bead necklace from ACCESSORIZE; Black flower barrette from Forever21

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black platform sandals from STEVEN BY STEVE MADDEN

IMG_5971This hat came in July’s Popsugar Must Have Box. It’s a brown straw hat with a wire brim so you can adjust it as you wish. I would’ve have bought it if I didn’t get it free (it costs USD48) and I was actually quite undecided about keeping it so at the time of these pictures being taken, the Michael Stars tag wasn’t removed yet. I’m keeping it because it’s useful to wear a hat in the desert summer especially since I walk Max everyday. But the real reason behind my keeping it is, T saying that he thinks it’s cute on me and wants me to wear it. So gentlemen, say nice things to your women. They are listening and they appreciate when you pick up on little things like that.

IMG_5972What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey Hello Kitty tank top from FOREVER21 Plus

Accessories: Dark brown Sea Grass Crusher hat from Michael Stars; Plastic airplanes necklace (gift from my pal Tamares); Brown faux leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bag: Pink and Beige large canvas tote from KATE SPADE

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

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

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?
