Hello again!  This time, from the Big Buddha of Lantau - a must see for anyone visiting Hong Kong and one of my favorite places to go to escape the hustle and bustle of the city (that and Nan Lian Garden, but more on that later).  

I'm wearing a dress by Anthropology that combines two of my favorite summer trends: off-the-shoulder and gingham.  While I was unsure of wearing both of these trends at once, I do have to thank my aunt Gigi for making me try on and purchase this dress, which has quickly become a staple in my summer wardrobe.  Here, I paired it with my Carolina Herrera fringe crossbody, Havaiana flip flops, and to complete this tropical look, a panama hat by Olé.

Lesson of the day: don't be afraid to mix (trends, prints, etc.), and just try it on!
