To get my writing inspiration about fashion for women ages 40-ish something, I joined this group on Facebook. We shares #OOTD photos, exchanging tips and sometimes ask for other’s opinion. It’s fun actually, seeing women across the universe sharing tips and their outfit. It’s a bit hard for me to find this kind of community in here. Once I have this placement article on my other blog about dressing for mature women. One of the reader said that she or probably he won’t be thinking about outfit too much when reaching that certain age. As if when we passed our twenties or thirties we are no longer allowed to dress up.

Traveling Disaster (Again)

IMG_20170511_113107
Trying to smile under the heavy wind and rain wasn’t easy

I once wrote it here what dress I will bring, what kind of outfit for my outing trip to the province of  islands Bangka and Belitung. Well, guess what… no surprise that all my plan failed.

I didn’t expect the weather would not be friendly with us. I have expected there would be rain but goodness for all day long? And our trip was hopping islands where you expected blue sky and white sands. It didn’t happen. So, eventually I just wear my shirt and legging because there is no place for changing clothes. Yeah, I brought my raincoat but I use it to cover my belonging from the rain. It was a miracle I didn’t get sick.

Batik From Bangka

Batik top bought at Bangka
It has been more than two weeks since I was back from traveling Belitung and Bangka. But I have not written about my trip so I decided to post this one first.
On our last day in Bangka before going back to Jakarta. our tour guide: Tria took us to two places that sold not only souvenirs like crackers or keychains but also traditional fabric. Each provinces in Indonesia has their own traditional clothes and fabrics. Belitung and Bangka also have their own batik.
I was really not in the mood for shopping frenzy since I have run out of money. We were not taken to the fabric where we can see the traditional fabric being made. But to two stores and both of them naturally put a bit higher price. After wipe out almost my money on crackers, coffee and shirt at sovenir shop, Tria the tour guide took us to Galeri Batik Destiani where we can buy traditional fabric from Bangka.

Bring Your Scarf

img_3620

Last Saturday, my friend called me to hang out with her at the mall (as usual, where else can we go?)

It has been raining for few days, so I prefer a simple outfit. Just a skinny jeans with my new Supima T-shirt (remember, the one that I bought in a hurry?) . I decided to bring along my red jacket and also my batik scarf.

The hang out place located at 56th floor BCA Tower and I was a bit taken aback. We didn’t plan to hang out at Skye in the first place. It was sort out popped out from my friend, she loves do things spontaneously. I was like, did I wear suitable outfit? I heard Skye is a fancy restaurant and lounge so I kinda worry with my outfit. I could wear the batik scarf so my outfit doesn’t look too simple. But I wore sport shoes and these kinda shoes sort of forbidden in this kind of restaurant . You know, the smart casual rule for us when we are about to dine in in a fancy restaurant.
