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. the pottinger hong kong breakfast gradini

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!

  7. Love the heels so much! Totally random advice for those heading to China/HK, please please be careful of foods with gutter oil, you can get info here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrv78nG9R04 - I had gone to HK with my parents and learned about this from their friends there, but not sure if we had avoided it. Hopefully, Jean you didn't experience it.

  8. You look stunning!! Love your purse!

  14. It's definitely something I can see myself wearing haha <3

  15. I love this dress and the color!! Perfect for spring!

  16. This is such a pretty dress. Also, it is such a wonderful background for a photoshoot.


  17. I truly do not anyone who does a better job at blogging or whatever this is. You have wonderful style and present everything with great accessibility. I'm 5'7" and can easily adapt to your recommendations. Nice job.

  18. I love the blush dress, you styled it perfectly. Looking great hon.


  19. Ugh. Again. I would never pay attention to his dress. But you picked it and you look great in it! How do you spot great pieces??? What should I look for?

  20. That lobby is gorgeous! I really enjoyed your Hong Kong snaps. x


  21. Love that dress looks great on you!


  22. That is cute and different. Pretty color too. I love pink, but worry that my affinity for bubblegum colors is a bit much on a woman of a certain age. This color is one i need more of. It's also nice to see a cold-shoulder dress that a woman with boobs can wear!

  23. You look so beautiful! Love these blush tones on you! XO


  24. I bought this dress in the blush color, and it's quite see-through. I'm 5'1" and 46kg and the dress in US4/UK8 is too long and loose on me. Very disappointing. You're supposed to be smaller than me but the dress doesn't look as long and loose on you as it is on me. Not sure how that's possible, you probably got it altered?
