Sunset and Sweater

One of my favorite things to do on a weekend is to walk around the pier at sunset. And dinner afterward is a must. Last Sunday, my boyfriend and I decided to walk the dock at Lake Union before the sun was setting. We stayed in making brunch and binging on all episodes of Stranger Things, season 2. Knowing we still have a Sunday mass to attend, so we went to an evening mass near the UW campus after dinner. We got a gift card to eat at 3 designated restaurants, and we chose the Chandler’s Crabhouse, not too far away from where we shot this outfit here at Lake Union.



I swear every time driving into downtown, the Seattle skyline and the water always catch my attention. There’s something about the calm water and reflection of things that make it so special. And of course, you can totally see the Space Needle, standing tall and proud.

I recently made an ASOS order, and I ended up keeping everything.

The roll-neck sweater and the sock boots I’m wearing in this post are from that recent order. I love how the sweater is so light-weight yet so warm, and it isn’t itchy at all! It’s made from the weirdest material, not wool, but yarn-like. So basically, there are tiny gray-colored threads that wrap around a white fluffy polyester string. Many strings, yarn-like, are eventually weaved in to make the sweater. I hope it makes some sense in your head, haha. And the sock boots are from the brand called Stradivarius which I’ve never heard about. They fit my feet like a pair of sock, seriously, and I love them. I love how they streamline and create a clean look when paired with a pair of black skinnies.

Luckily, I was able to find my beloved Proenza Schouler, mini Elliot bag, on a website which I directly linked at the end of this post. I bought it when it was 40% off, around $650. And if you’ve been following me for awhile now, you’ve probably noticed I wear it way too much. I can say that I’ve got every single penny worth out from that bag ever since. And it’s been 2- 3 years. The price of the bag I’ve linked is pretty much what I have paid years ago. So get it if you can! I’d totally recommend Proenza Schouler to anyone who’s looking to buy a designer bag without wanting to have the brand or designer name shown all over the bag. Only a few people who are into fashion has recognized my designer bag. And that’s what I much prefer to wear than those popular bags that everyone ends up wearing the same thing out.
