Hong Kong is hot
. I knew this before coming obviously, but dealing with the heat and humidity and near-constant feeling of sweatiness is quite unfamiliar for me! It’s nice to get a chance to dress a little differently though, as usually back home I have to start bundling on the layers soon, whereas here I get a chance to stay in my summery stuff for longer. I could only bring a small portion of my wardrobe with me though, so expect to see the same few pieces on rotation for the next while! Darker or vibrant colours are my usual choice in any season, and although it’s warm, it’s more humidity than direct sunlight, so dark colours don’t cause much of a problem anyway. This outfit was thrown on without heaps of thought, as simplicity is best for this heat! Although the top is black, it’s very lightweight, especially with the semi-sheer stripes, and the lace on the skirt makes me feel a little more dressed up than say, shorts, for example. This isn’t a work outfit
though, it’s more for evenings or weekends exploring the city. I like to wear my jewellery then too, as I haven’t been wearing much to work. And of course, sandals are perfect for warm weather!
