YSL wallet on chain (smaller version in same "light rose"), H&M scarf
I love the forgiving cut of an easy swing dress, and how it can easily be dressed up or down. I’ve worn this one with a statement necklace and my minimalistic heels for going out, with a denim jacket and flat sandals for walking around, and also like it with a lightweight scarf and platform shoes as shown here. It’s not in petite sizing so the sleeves are a little long on me, but I like where the overall length hits.
These photos were taken in the beautiful lobby of The Pottinger Hong Kong where we loved staying. We spend a lot of time looking into lodging each time we travel, and were torn between staying on the Kowloon vs Hong Kong island side of the harbor, as well as choosing between a more iconic hotel like the Ritz Carlton (highest hotel overlooking HK!) or a boutique one. We ended up booking the latter in the central area and were so happy with the decision. This hotel is a clean and quiet oasis right on a bustling street, with lots of foodie hot spots and shopping ranging from high-end malls to street stalls just steps away.
Daily made-to-order breakfast that comes included with each room!
I have another swing dress from the same brand in petite sizing and found it to be very short (see on me), so I personally prefer the regular sizing. Below are a few other swingy options, with varying sleeve lengths as well as shoulder coverage:
- sleeveless ribbed version of my dress, 33" length
- long sleeve closed shoulder version of my dress, 32" length
- long sleeve crewneck swing dress, no length info
- short sleeve open shoulder swing dress, no length info
Our area didn’t seem very heels-friendly to me with all the uneven sidewalks and cobblestone, yet I saw plenty of locals strutting around in pumps like pros. I stuck with my low sandals and sneakers most of the time, breaking these heels out only to go upstairs to our hotel bar. Like most cocktail spots we visited in HK, the drinks at The Envoy were pricey, but probably the yummiest amongst the ones we tried. I licked my cup of Matcha-zuki (cocktail inspired by green tea swiss rolls with red bean filling) completely clean!
