SHIRT DRESS

6:30:00 PM







shirt dress by Auburn & Ginger // tropical jacket by Ungaro at Farfetch // clutch by Stradivarius // Nine West sandals

Of all the gifts Auburn & Ginger got me, this is unquestionably my utmost favorite. A salmon colored shirt dress whose design flatters my figure and hue compliments my complexion. With all confidence I wore it with my tropical jacket and similarly colored clutch. Definitely one of the outfits I am so content to have pulled off.

Lately I've been asking my friends where they want to work after finishing school? That, and followed by where they want to spend the rest of their elderly lives until they die? Every answers are unique as they come with certain philosophies that tell you a lot about how those people perceive life and the place they're born and bred in.

Asking the question to myself, I definitely want to work in Jakarta, Indonesia. There's something about my birth city that I so much adore, something about my birth country that I treasure. I realized this upon arriving back home from my little trip to Japan last year, how Jakarta's traffic often gets the best of me, yet weirdly I miss driving around town with all the traffic that feels most like Jakarta. People who were not born here may despise the city's overcrowding (or so I been hearing), and even some of those who were might think I'm crazy, but guilty as charged - I love this city that much.

Nonetheless, come the day of my retirement, I would get a kick out of traveling the world and spend my elderly days in one of the places I consider most breathtaking. Setting foot on every corners of planet earth is the ultimate thing to do before I die. My life would have been dedicated for my birth country, I would have given all there is, and I shall satisfy my soul by fulfilling that ultimate goal of mine.

Tell me what you think; where do you want to work after graduating school and where do you want to spend your elderly days?

    I personally prefer to live in a place out of city, near the mountain..where I can have my own garden, do some planting. At least, I can breath unpolluted air hahaha

    I think I prefer to stay in Jakarta for work, some countries I want to go to, they maybe beautiful but considering the living cost and anything I think those place are the best for travelling but not for living :s
    it would be nice to spend my old days lazing around in a hut of a small village with soothing air!

  14. i do agree this is one of your best look! i love the way you combine the elegance of the shirt dress with a cheerful patterned outer, and to finish it off, your shoes are perfect for the whole outfit.

    as for your question, i think Jakarta probably is the most suitable place for me to work, as this is the capital city so many things come in handy here. for my elderly days, i would love love loveeee if i could spend my days in Taiwan. that country captivated my mind, i left a part of my soul there i guess :)

  24. lovely, lovely colours you maintained to pull together :P
    awwhh that is so sweet. i gotta agree, there's something about your hometown / home country very much endearing. valentino garavani said "the place everyone must visit before they die is their hometown, to remember when they were a baby." true. even though i'm not from jakarta (and you heard right, i and probably some people outside jakarta loathe the traffic there hahaha) but i understand what you mean about no matter how "ugly" it looks, there's always a soft spot in our heart for our hometowns. there will always be :)
