    Day Out To Danshui; Fishermen's Wharf + My DARLING Maxi

    Went out to Danshui and Fishermen Wharf; located north of Taipei City and it's such an impossibly quaint and scenic attraction! For those of you who ADORES photography and taking pictures in gorgeous, out of the ordinary locations, the smattering availability of Victorian architectures and the beautiful view here, would be a feast for your eyes!





    PS/ The bridge in the picture is an icon itself; it is known as Valentine's Bridge; and couples are known to frequent and cross the bridge; Symbolically blessing their relationship and bestowing a lifetime of happiness and love onto them.

    There were tons of food on offer; and the sun was scorching! I guess, I'll have to come out and face reality that the hot; humid summer is approaching!

    Decided to make the best use of the weather and so, I wore my new floral maxi with corset detailing.



    Love the beautiful crochet; and the "colourful floral on black" effect;

    And of course! The unique, corset details which caught my eye the very first time!

    Dress; Shilin Nightmarket
    Bag; Agnès B.
    Flip Flops; Havaianas

    What makes me wistful though; is that I do not have a pretty straw fedora to match; the outfit would be so complete and so gorgeously Boho then!

    Pffft you look equally as stunning WITHOUT the straw fedora ;)

    Love the maxi, such a perfect piece and it needs nothing much more in terms of accesories and layers. Wonderful Summer attire. Gee, I'm jealous that you've found such a nice maxi dress now lol. I've been hunting one for years it seems!

    hahaha Beckett isn't properly toilet trained although he knows he shoudln't defecate on me. Last night I caught him doing something that just made me smile. Let me tell you: :D

    Bubs sleeps on my arm, on my shoulder or on my tummy every night (under my duvet). He had riled himself up and I noticed that he very quietly hopped off my chest, walked out through a little gap in my sheets and did a little poopy 'outside' lol, he then just waddled back to his sleeping place! How cute is that! haha

    Peace out chicka

    Luv ya xoxoxo

    This is so incredibly beautiful. I love the dress!
    I haven't been to Taipei in a while...my parents both grew up there and my mom had a motorcycle accident in Danshui when she was young! Haha. But I agree, it is very picturesque.
    And thank you for the comment - I will try to wear the skirt sometime soon :)
