Snapshots from Taiwan :: Warm Tones Meet Cool Accents

Hi everyone! Hope you're all doing well :)



After a busy couple weeks in December with finals, the holidays, and other celebrations followed by a two week vacation to Taiwan, I'm finally back home and ready to get back in my normal routines in this last week of winter break before school starts again. It's been a decade since I've been back to Taiwan, and all my previous memories were a bit foggy and scattered. It was exciting to go back and visit after all these years - this time to make some memories I will definitely remember and hold dear to my heart. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen some photos from my trip. We went up into the mountains for some freshly grown and roasted coffee, down south for a two-day getaway on the beautiful coast, visited the capital city of Taipei, and spent lots and lots of time eating in the city of Taichung. Taiwan, or as I like to call it, Formosa, is a beautiful country and if you get the chance I highly recommend you make a trip to the island for some good eats, shopping, and sightseeing!



I wore this outfit to a lunch at an adorable villa-like restaurant area in the close-by mountains of Taichung. Since Taichung is located in central Taiwan, the weather was quite beautiful and it felt like perfect spring weather on most days. Thus, I was able to get away with wearing a skirt, sans stockings, with just a jacket for the chillier evenings. Navy and camel is always an easy pairing, but I decided to glam up the look with a little silver in my jewelry, accessories, and shoes. Like I mentioned in my last post, in honor of my birthday week, I wanted all the looks from this week to have a little sparkle to make them a bit dressier and more feminine and glam. I'll be sharing with you all next week the looks that I wore for my actual birthday weekend! Hope you tune in for those :)
