Spring Leap

Dear Diary,
So I might have jumped the gun just a bit… last weekend the weather got slightly warmer and I was more than excited to break out my newly purchased shorts. So while the rest of America was getting hit by heavy storms, I was happily skipping around in a pale blouse and wide-legged shorts. Perhaps it’s because I am dying to start wearing pieces from my shopping trip to Taiwan back in November. Sorry America, if you find this outfit not so relatable, consider this an early preview for my Spring attire!

Ever since early Fall I have been obsessed with high-waist bottoms. I had a hard time finding ones that didn’t make me look like a clown, but I was delighted to find great ones in Taiwan. These shorts, which I adore, had some serious identity problems! At first glimpse, the wide-leg openings and the faux bow belt make them fun and flirty, but taking a closer look, the thick wool material, dark color, and the front pleats are serious and formal. Totally contradictory - which is just my cup of tea!

Hi F&R,
I love your style! I will be visiting Taiwan over the break with my family. I was wondering if you could share some names of neighborhoods over there where the shopping is great. Thanks!

Hi Anonymous #2 - I would be happy to share some shopping tips about Taiwan (or Taipei specifically). Drop me an email, I need a bit more information about what you are looking for!

Hi J,
Sorry for my late response! I got the blouse from a boutique in Taiwan! The details are amazing right? So girly and cute!
