So hubby and I decided to treat ourselves to a foot massage during the weekend. Why not since an hour foot massage is only $15.00 USD. Of course before our journey to the Chinese Massage joint I had to grab a cup of coffee to get my day started. Since it was Sunday, I was already in my lazy mode so I decided to wear my oh so comfy shorts that I purchased at a market place in Bali. I fell in love with the shorts because of the little pom poms at the ends of the shorts and plus it only cost me $10.00. It was hard for me not to resist. Can’t ask for a better relaxing weekend.

Well the Rag and Bone Miramar were my staple jeans while I was in Chicago, I basically wore them everyday. Why wouldn’t I, they’re so comfortable and I love that they’re sweats. Now… I just wish the weather was nice and sunny, however I’m in Chicago where the weather is unpredictable. I’m grateful that it’s at least warm enough to go outside without a jacket. Now I just need some sun and greenery here.

Touchdown! I’m back home in Chicago for a month. I was so excited to come home and see my friends and family. I also missed eating at M Henry, one of my favorite brunch places. Gorging on great food, what more can a girl ask for? It was nice to come back home and eat the yummy American brunch food. For some reason it’s been hard for me to find a great brunch spot while in Asia. I’ll be continuing my search for that amazing brunch place when we move to Singapore since my time in Malaysia was only for a year. My search will still continue, who knows maybe I’ll find that perfect brunch spot. I’m a Chicago girl, born and raised, so I’m used to the cold weather since I lived here all my life. However, since moving abroad where it’s summer all year round, it’s been an adjustment coming back home. Who knew I became such a wuss and could not handle that cold frigid air. However the perks to coming back home was wearing my fall/winter clothes again =) (Skirt: All Saints Similar; Boots: Acne Similar; T-shirt: Acne; Sweater: Community; Jacket: MM6; Bag: Alexander Wang; Jewelry: Pamela Love)
Pierre Balmain had a super hero t-shirt so I had to pick it up from Shopbop. I love t-shirts and this was a great find since it’s perfect for the hot weather in Malaysia. I’ve always been a fan of Pierre Balmain for it’s street edge and comfortable look. It was a perfect t-shirt to pair with my Zara faux leather skirt that I picked up this spring. Let me just tell you it was scorching hot that day and I felt as though I was literally melting in the middle of KLCC. Once we were outside I knew I had to go back inside KLCC where it’s always super cold from the full blast AC’s. But the cold air feels refreshing when it’s scorching hot outside. But after a few minutes in the AC, it starts to get chilly. Hence why it’s always smart to bring a pullover for the cold frigid air. It’s a constant battle of the climate from frigid ac to scorching hot weather here.

I need coffee in my life, so during the weekend I always try to scour places in Malaysia that has great coffee. It was a hot scorching day in Malaysia and I needed my caffeine fix and as you can tell I’m quite enjoying my iced Americano. I was content for the day now that I had my fix and it was time for me to enjoy the sunny warm weather that Malaysia has to offer. It’s a far cry from the current weather in Malaysia, which is hazey due to the old farming techniques of burning the fields in Indonesia. If only I was able to rewind back to this day where I was able to enjoy the bright sun and crystal blue sky. Hence why my outfit is basically blue on blue as well as my YSL jewelry of Turquoise blue to normal blue.

I ran across Otaki Clothinig on Instagram and instantly fell in love with the brand. The Night Out dress was a great fit for me because of how comfortable it is and it’s versatility since it can be worn during the day or at night. Otaki clothing uses 100% certified Lenpur yarn and fabrics, which are weaved by craftsmen in Italy. Each item is inspected for certification compliance and quality prior to putting the Otaki label on it.
Now what is Lenpur-Bamboo. Lempur is a 100 % cellulose which is a natural fiber. They are produced from branches from one of seven species of white pine that are grown only in China and Canada. Products from Lempur are great because it’s what makes the fabric soft, resistance to pulling and high washing, and great for summer and winter weather because it’s able to sustain higher thermal range.
Otaki yarn fabric uses a type of Bamboo that is grown from plantations free from pesticide, pollution and fertilizer. The natural fibers make this great product 100% biodegradable. The benefit of using Bamboo are softer, breathable and order controlling clothes. Bamboo fabrics are great for all weather because it draws moisture away during warm temperatures and acts as good insulator during cold winters. Who wouldn’t want clothes that features both characteristics.
