(Escape) to the Mountains

When packing for winter vacations, items that I can easily layer up and keep me warm are my go-to essentials. The faux fur hat has become one of my favourite accessories for the season. It is not only keeping me cozy, but also a chic statement piece for the outfit! A pair of warm gloves are must-have too – I prefer mittens because they are ring-friendly. Combat boots are easily to be dressed up and down – wear them over skinny jeans, I am good to go everywhere during the day; pair the boots with a shift dress for a night out, they will make the whole look more playful and cool. A poncho is this season’s most seen and must-have item and they are very wearable too – throw it over a coat or jacket to add a chic layer of warmth, or just simply use it as a blanket to cozy up during chilly nights. ❤

Hutongs in Beijing

Hutongs aka alleys had formed the old Beijing city, but now most of them are demolished into wider roads and modern buildings, only a few of hutongs are left as protected areas to preserve the Chinese cultural history.

The pictures above were taken in Nanluogu alley, which has been kept as its original hutong look, but with lots of street food and boutiques owned by local Beijingers.
