Last from the Taiwan coordinate post. Took me so much time to post all my coordinate from our trip in Taiwan.
You could have known by now that black and gray are my totally favorite and “to-go” to colors. Good thing that I wore this ensemble during our trip in Yehliu as the afternoon heat is not bearable for the skin but at the same time cold wind passes thru. So it is a win-win situation to keep myself warm and at the same time protect my skin to some harsh UVA.

I have been missing the cool weather and the option to do layering for your coordinates. I am stuck wearing light clothing and fabric for my everyday wear. Summer is on full blast and I am not really a summer person. I prefer cooler weather over hot ones (who doesn’t by the way) . I wish that our country has spring and autumn season. I am constantly reminded that we always look for something that we do not have, and for this instance, the weather.
I have been busy the last few months that I almost forgot that I still have pending outfit/coordinate post from our Taiwan trip last January. Back to Taiwan, where weather is cooler and layering is essential. I wish that we will have Taiwan’s weather here and I’ll have the excuse to wear the jackets and coats.

Jumpers are recollection of my childhood days. I remember looking at old photos and seeing myself dressed in 90s jumpers put a little smile on my face.
Since 90s influence has been sort of making a comeback, I think it’s about time to try to pull a look while trying in some layering in windy Taiwan.
Chiang Kai Shek
It’s kind of tricky to pull out the look as I want to avoid looking full-on 90s and I also want to make it look fresh (hopefully). Then one day, weeks before our trip in Taiwan, I happened to watch a Korean variety show and saw one person wearing long sleeves under his jumper and I said that maybe I could give it a try. Viola, I love how everything coordinates well and layering works on cold weather (Thanks for the semi-Winter, Taiwan!). Luckily, I wore this outfit on our first day before we devour all the delicious food in Taiwan.

I was never the type of person who go for full power color coordination when it comes to my outfit. I guess my aesthetic is all about muted and monochromatic tones. From time to time, I like to surprise myself with a little bit of splash of color for my coordinates.
Second outfit post from our recent Taiwan trip. This coordinate is among the very first one that pops in my mind when I was looking through my pile of clothes when we started to plan for our Taiwan trip. As usual, the base of the whole ensemble is from my love of stripes and black bottoms. The combination mixes well with the peach coat.
A Magical Place – Xinshe Castle
Greens Are My Friends
I also planned to wear this outfit on the day that we will visit places which involve flowers and nature. On the day I wore this ensemble, that day we visited Taichung where Xinshe Castle and Zhong She Flower Market are located. The outfit really blends well with the rustic feel of Xinshe Castle and the blooming ambiance of the flower market. Just to let you know of a little secret, the Taichung part of our trip is my absolute favorite part of our Taiwan trip.

It has been months since my last post and here is some outfit blog post from my recent trip in Taiwan. So recent that I just arrived back home and started sorting out pictures for my blog entries.
There is so much to say about Taiwan and will detail all them on my next few blog entries. For all I can say right now is that Taiwan is by far one of the best places I have been to, everything is amazing – from food, sights and people!
Our trip in Taiwan is in the middle of the winter. Though snow is scarce in Taiwan (snow can be found on top of the mountains where you still need to trek or something), the wind still brings cold weather. When we arrived, it was around 8 degrees and averaging to 11-15 degrees which by the way is considered cold for those who are living in a tropical country. Good for me though that I always prefer the cold weather over the hot one.
You should have known by now that gray is one of my most favorite color and I love playing with monotone ensembles. Recently, you have seen me in all black but very seldom is an all gray look. Gray also looks good with colorful and playful background which also happened that we visited such colorful places when I wore the ensemble.

Hope you like my take on this winter and all-gray ensemble.
‘Til the next pose & post!
