layered fold

Summer might be over, but I just want to share a bright kinda outfit as last tidbits of the sunny season.   Recently received this gorgeous jumpsuit from she inside, an online market for everything trendy in affordable price. Never had a bright printed piece of clothing before and this might be my first pick.

"Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admit what it is. And the faith to trust our own admission. The admitting is often very difficult."

Don't you love how it falls? The material is certainly comfortable and it is perfect for casual day! See similar jumpsuit here, here, or here.

The jacket itself is a steal, I never had a pastel coloured outerwear nor a pink one. So the combination of this ensemble is a step to explore my style further i guess. Here's the beautiful details of my jacket with its edgy zipper and my casio watch from zalora. And yes if you notice it's also my first post with bright background. What do you think ?

it's always darkest before the dawn

Discovered one of the hidden gem in Jakarta, DiaLoGue Art Space in Kemang Area. The place is so tranquil and silent, I could sit there for hours and hours over cups of coffee. It is best to visit during slow weekend like Sunday afternoon. Its minimalist and modern design is adorned with raw looking floor and wall, wooden fixtures, and warm lighting.

If you haven't know yet, I am one of those person who love a silence me time. I love spending the time sitting with coffee, be it reading a good book or sketching in my Moleskine. I have this habit ever since I was in Singapore, as I feel it gives me better fresh ideas at times. Finding a place like this in Jakarta is like scoring a hidden treasure. I am not really fancy going to malls on weekend, as it is utterly crowded, so cafe like this becomes my destination.

The space itself is divided into four section. You will be welcomed by the shop that sells artsy knick knacks from wooden decor to pretty paper goods. The gallery where there is seasonal exhibition. The spacious cafe. And the high ceiling multifunction room. Some of the place is definitely bright and airy, while the cafe has rather warmth and dark ambience.

Totally wouldn't expect that their coffee is surprisingly good. I went there on a rainy sunday afternoon, and this cup feels like heaven. Also try their homemade pizza, too bad the portion is small - well i mean we totally crave for more!

luciole lunch

Last sunday, I had a chance to meet up my fellow bloggers while having casual sunday lunch. It was raining that day, but this photo is taken just after it stops. I picked out a more colourful outfit to brighten up my mood despite the gloomy day.

Had a little touch of colour with my printed dress from Ericdress. Ericdress is an online website that provides wedding and special occasion dresses such as prom, homecoming, and cocktail outfit in reasonable price. Besides that it also has various casual clothing to choose! It also ships worldwide.

Love the neon colour combination of this dress and how it can instantly brighten my look. As you can see that bring colour is so in trend this summer, I pair it with another pop of colour with my Balenciaga giant gold bracelet in purple leather.

We picked Luciole Bistro in Central Park Jakarta to dine in. This was the first time I tried and I truly love the interior setting. I love how it mix modern minimalism with some rustic accent, mainly covered in black. Big windows allow sunshine to come in, therefore we can have bright and clean looking photos.

My default order in a new restaurant would be Aglio Olio, my favourite pasta. Theirs turn out to be great - not too oily or too dry, but i secretly wish it has more seasoning. Only ordered simple ice tea to accompany, because we will be having dessert in other place, so as not feel too bloated. Overall the place is comfortable and the food is great. Will come back for more!

My fellow bloggers: Veren Lee who is having holiday in Jakarta and Julian Tanoto of Cloth Inc. So happy to finally meet them again and share what has been happening !
