Over the past week it’s been raining non-stop in Hong Kong. There have been moments of torrential downpour that were even more intense than what I had ever seen before. Although the rain is inconvenient, I appreciate how it’s provides a break from the heat and also a sweet reminder of my life back in Vancouver where it rained more than anything else.
To dress for the wet weather I choose dark-coloured pieces that are resistant against water damage. Here I’m wearing a denim shirt (similar styles here) and my absolute favourite Zanerobe joggers.
I’ve had this Jack Spade bag for over half a year now and it’s still holding up well. Its durable canvas material is very resistant against the rain.
I purchased these Tretorn rainboots years ago in Vancouver. They’re not the most fashionable footwear and they are quite old,but these boots still serve their purpose in keeping my feet dry from the biggest puddles.
Thank you for reading!

It’s been raining hard in Hong Kong this week, so I thought now would be a good time to revisit photos my trip to sunny Thailand from earlier this year. Although most of my trip was spent in Bangkok, my most memorable experiences in Thailand occurred out in the countryside. Ayutthaya is a small historic town that I visited midway through my trip. It’s located about 3 hours north of Bangkok by train. This town is an ancient capital of Thailand and it is a UNESCO site filled with ruins of ancient temples. Upon arriving to this town I rented a bike and navigated my way around from temple to temple. Pretty much I was pretending to be Indiana Jones for the day.
Today, like any other Sunday, I started off my day with brunch. My brunch routine started in Vancouver (I miss Vancity brunches so much) and I am continuing it here in Hong Kong. So far my favourite spots for brunch here are Nosh, Cafe Deadend, and Classified – all of which are in Sheung Wan. When I’m with relatives we often go for dim sum, and we normally go to Lin Heung Tea House or Rainbow Chinese Cuisine. If you’re in Hong Kong, I highly recommend paying these restaurants a visit. But this being said, I’m actually really craving the brunch menu at Fable in Vancouver…
After moving to Hong Kong I met my friend Calvin and he has taught me a few new things about style. Calvin’s style is very minimalistic – every time I see him he’s wearing a plain tee with trousers and sneakers, usually in white, grey, or black. But even though he only wears basics, he’s one of the most stylish guys I know. From him I’ve learned that simple doesn’t mean boring, and that a plain white tee can look amazing if it fits right.
Inspired by Calvin’s minimalistic style, in this look here I’m pairing together a few of my favourite plain pieces. I got this short-sleeved sweatshirt on sale at Forever 21 for around $10 USD, yet it’s one of my most worn pieces lately because it’s so comfortable and easy to wear. I also really like this very similar sweatshirt from Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen.
