Today’s featured ladies showed this spring’s key words: crop, flare, floral, art, pink, white and futuristic. I also love how they rocked the crop top trend in a tasteful way by teaming with high-waisted shorts and skirt, respectively. The floral car coat and edgy leather jacket also help balance the sexiness.

In Chinese: 这一季春夏的很多流行元素都集合在今天的这两个造型里了:短款的剪裁、女性化的线条、花朵的图案、艺术品般的视觉冲击以及色彩上的粉、白等等。对于持续大热的露脐装,学学她们,配上高腰的短裤伞裙,把露肤度拿捏得恰到好处。箱型外套硬朗的机车皮衣也很好地平衡了短打装的性感。

A nice coat is definitely an investment-worthy piece, especially for fall/winter. Like my mom always told me: as long as you have a fabulous coat, you will look great no matter what you wear under.

This fall, cocoon is still one of the hottest coat shape. This one spotted on two style-conscious supermodels Miranda Kerr & Lily Aldridge instantly caught my eye: The hip grazing length is versatile, can be worn with anything from dress, skirt to leggings and pants; The sophisticated gray color is timeless, let alone the marble-like texture, which we’ve seen a lot on the latest runways; The slightly oversized shape has that popular sporty element, is right-on-trend and very flattering.

外套是最值得投资的基本单品,尤其到了秋冬。小的时候妈妈就常告诉我,一定要买好的外套,无论你里面穿什么,看起来都会很漂亮。

今年秋冬,宽松的可可呢大衣仍是大热的版型,最近在时尚超模Miranda Kerr 和Lily Aldridge身上看到的这件灰白色的外套吸引了我。刚好到臀部的长度非常百搭又修饰身形,从牛仔裤到裙子到内搭裤都可以配; 低调优雅的灰白色即能点亮整身look又不失秋冬的温暖感,织纹又很像明年会流行的大理石的图案;宽松的设计恰到好处,即有男友风外套的帅性感,肩部及领片的设计又展现了女性的柔美。

At 22 weeks pregnant, the discomfort is almost gone, I’m starting to enjoy this journey now. And exciting news to share with all of you: we are expecting a —- boy! He is so active everyday. Even during my ultrasound, he kept moving around, sucking his little fingers.

My body has changed a lot in the past five months. With the limited (and boring) clothing choices, handbags have become my trusty friends to keep my outfits fresh and updated. Luckily, this catalog is always worth the investment, whether we are expecting or not, right?

Starting from last season, the key word for handbags has become “small”. For those of you who are also in the market for a great arm candy for the warm weather ahead, or investment versions that can be carried year round, I picked six types of stylish cross body bags/clutches that I’m lusting over. Hope can give you some inspirations to find your trusty go-to bag that will surly brighten your day!

Black and white is a huge color trend now and also a timeless classic combination. For the of-the-moment checkered pattern, you can recreate your own with this affordable Forever21 bag. For the never-go-out-of-style striped version, this one by Marc Jacobs is definitely worth the investment, it is covered in over 135,000 paillettes, truly a collectible art piece!

Colored bags are also something we never get bored with. There are a bevy of options: from the modern colorblock version to stunning geometric pattern to luscious floral print… They can instantly brighten up your neutral outfit, or add flourish to your equally eye-catching garment.

Last one (below) is a seasonal option: a woven wick bag or wood bead clutch. They are not usually considered as essential pieces, but they caught my eyes every time. Compared to ubiquity leather, these natural materials are refreshingly cool. The understated appeal and inherent quaint beauty make the carrier stand out.
