The weather is finally cool enough for me to take Max out for a walk in the desert. So yesterday, Max and I went for a short hike up the little hill behind our house. I decided to test out my new sweater but because I thought it was a little thin, I wore a tank top under it (especially since I was walking out in the elements). Turns out I was right. It was a little too thin for desert winds.

What I’m wearing:

Top: Grey donut sweater from MOSSIMO SUPPLY CO (at Target)

Accessories: Mini beads & Multi strand necklace from FOREVER21; Black pleather belt with silver buckle from H&M

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

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

So I’ve been asked why I’m always so happy in my pictures and I’m glad that people enjoy looking at me being all overtly jubilant because life can suck… You know? And nobody really wants to see a sullen picture of me. Some people have problems with their resting bitch face whereas I have a resting sad face. I actually look like I’m in pain when I’m not smiling. HAHAHA! Also, as I’ve mentioned before, wastedfashion is only a small part of my personal life. There are so many facets to it. (Just so you know, my husband forces me to read The Feeling Good Handbook…)

If there’s a secret or a tip behind taking crazy pictures like mine, it’s to play some music, dance (or sing) to it and take your photos early in the day before anyone can ruin your mood. Heh…

Onward with day uhmm… 4? 5? 6? of the unwashed denim shorts

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

Happy Independence Day, USA! I’ve been a Permanent Resident for less than a year and I’ve still got lots more to learn. For the first few months that I was here, I binge-watched trashy reality TV to T’s horror. I was proudly telling him that I was learning about his country and his culture. HAHA! BUT I did watch 2 seasons of a very interesting HISTORY Channel tv series called “How the States Got Their Shapes” and I really did learn a lot more about this country.

Did you know that
– Alaska is the easternmost and westernmost state of the USA?
– there are only 3 power grids in the USA? East, West and Texas!
– California grows about 80% of the country’s winter vegetables?
– West Virginia has the highest number of home owners and New York the lowest?
– Wisconsin had the country’s first boom trade in the 1700s? They exported skins and the most valuable being Beaver fur!
– Ohio wasn’t officially a state until President Eisenhower signed backdated papers to 1803, in 1953?
– Nevada has the lowest rainfall in the entire country? Drought alert for me! Eeeeks!

Anyway, maybe by next year, our household will be celebrating Independence Day complete with decor and a flag proudly flying (I blame my US-born and raised husband for not making the effort *koffkoff*)

So anyway what has my outfit got to do with the 4th of July? Nothing… I tried expressing what I felt was most significant about my move here but I don’t think it carried through. Hiking boots, lumberjack-esque shirt and my version of a pair of daisy dukes cut-off denim shorts. You get the idea right? Kinda, sorta…

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Dark grey RADIOHEAD tank top (that I got from their concert in Melbourne, Australia in 2012)

Outerwear: Red & blue plaid shirt from H&M L.O.G.G.

Accessories: Black distressed leather skinny belt from TOPSHOP

Bag: Grey oversized clutch with Lime Green and Black accents from Charles & Keith

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

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

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.
