Carrot Top

H&M orange cropped sweater (Euro 4) // H&M knee length ruched skirt (Euro 4) // 
H&M brown felt fedora (M) // Taiwanese teal tights // Taiwanese camel faux fur heeled boots (36) //

Startled to see my old hair colour again and missing it lots. Here's what I wore under my trench coat for the outfit I posted two days ago. When I spotted this super bright orange freshly-squeezed-carrot-juice-worthy cropped sweater at H&M for a good price, I had to take some risks with bright colours and thaw myself out of a stagnant winter. With these teal tights I got at a night market in Taipei over break, I looked like a walking, talking Crayola box. Mondays have to be combated somehow, right?

Still working through this backlog of post material. I have some reviews to write about beauty products and still photos to edit from many a shoot. It seems that life doesn't slow down enough to let me catch up on blogging just about what happened today! So much to do, so little time. What I really miss is kicking back with a good book by a sunny window or sitting down with a slice of lemon cake and cup of piping hot black coffee at Borders. Too bad they're closing ... I still don't know what happened there. They will be missed. Any good reads recently? I need a good page-turner!

Have you tried lemon cake from Starbucks? It's SO good and hubby always gets it when we go.

Wow, a very bold choice of colors!I wouldn't be able to pull off this look as well as you :) Or even have the courage to wear the colors together! This outfit reflected your bubbly personality. Great job! :)

(sorry about the lack of comments, I read all of your posts religiously but sometimes am unable to comment)

I LOVE this color on you, actually, all vibrant colors look incredible against your skintone. you also did a really job color-blocking here! :)

I'm really liking the color blocking on you! I'm actually trying to get colour into my wardrobe but it's pretty hard once you are used to wearing all muted colors. But awesome outfit :)

this outfit is so fun! i love all the cute poses, you can definitely tell you feel good in it.

i will miss borders but to be perfectly honest i've always been more of a barnes and noble girl myself. but still it's sad to see bookstores go down. i love books!

if you're looking for something good to year last year i finished a book called "she's come undone" by wally lamb that was actually really good. it was not something i normally read but the writing was really amazing, almost like reading a diary. i guess what i found most fascinating is the book is about a girl from the age of 4 to about the age of 40 and chronicles her entire life from the first person. it's really cool to see that kind of character development. i've recently started the "dark tower" series by stephen king but i think it's too early in to start recommending it to anyone.

Angie, this is so cute and so YOU! all jumpy and stuff :) Love the sweater on you. It's fighting against all the gloominess in spring. I hope it's (finally) getting warm over there. In terms of books, I have been dying to find new good reads too. Been just reading Narnia on and off for past month or so lol. I have never read that and feel like I should catch up on what you guys read when you were young haha. Hope you find a great book soon!
