It has been so incredibly hot in Vancouver the past few days, which is all kinds of amazing. I was born in Hong Kong and spent the first six years of my life there, the city is great culturally, but climate wise? It’s a subtropical location: it’s super humid and summer days are regularly in the high 30’s. So I have completely embraced the Vancouver heat, because it is just lovely compared to the sweltering weather in Hong Kong.
However, that doesn’t mean I’m not susceptible to the heat. Dressing appropriately in the summertime is definitely higher up on my list of priorities than dressing appropriately in the winter. Who wants to end up all sticky and gross as soon as they leave the house? These joggers from Community are the perfect summer pants, they are so breezy and comfortable. I love it when pants are put together for real life but feel like sweatpants. I mean, seriously is there anything better? Pure love.
Speaking of love, I am obsessed with this scrunchie I got from Front and Company. I mean first of all, it’s a scrunchie. I haven’t owned a scrunchie since 1998, and right now I’m not sure why that is. I think we should bring back the days when we had a scrunchie in our hair and three on our wrists, doubling as bracelets. Then again, if we’re going there we should also bring back bonnebelle flipglosses (so cool because they looked like lighters, right?!) and haphazardly smearing grape scented glitter all over our faces because that was the look. (Well, nobody said it was a good look.) Second of all, the little wire bow on it is too cute. They kind of look like little bunny ears which the sanrio-superfan in me adores. Full disclosure you guys, I have a hoodie from this HK company called Bros Products and it is one big kawaii mess. It’s almost cape like it structure with letterman jacket influences, covered in polka dots on the back with this pink cartoon sheep rabbit baby (?) on the front and the hood has bunny ears. So yeah, I look fully crazy when I wear it outside. So I guess my point is that this cutesie scrunchie is a good balance, it’s bunny ears but it’s not nearly as crazy as some of my other clothes. (I also own a tabby cat onesie with a tail. Why am I public admitting to owning these things? Stahp.)
