I would lie down in an abundant forest all day, if it wasn't for mosquitos. Yun Jing and I returned to our favourite grassy spot again. It's been awhile, and it felt satisfying to be shooting with her again. She never fails to make this place appear whimsical and almost surreal.

I felt right in my element and couldn't feel happier to be creating content after a break. I casually put on a cotton midi dress which felt relieving on a humid afternoon where the wind remained stale. That too explains my little awkward ponytail. I barely have enough hair for a neat style but then it's a reminder that my hair grows way too fast, calling for a haircut.

I feel like my outfit today is very granny chic and it's a pretty stylish way to respond whenever someone makes a remark of me, "you dress too mature for your age". The rebel in me silently delights in doing the opposite, and the densely gathered flower patten of the dress does just the right amount of aged charm. I also adore the hint of orientalism with that mandarin collar which looks neat and modest. I think the tidiness of that juxtaposed against my scruffy looking handbag, also known as the 'garbage carry'. There's no way I can resist unconventional accessories that question looks and functionality. The best ones? Those that strike a balance between the two.
