Layering just happens to be one of my favourite hobbies, but can be near impossible in HK’s sweltering humidity and heat. This is why the kimono top can often be a summer wardrobe’s best friend. Light, airy, and gives that just fell out of bed bohemian vibe. A definite staple in my yearly looks, which is why Bubble Mood’s version from Mode in Asia caught my attention immediately. I love the nod to nautical stripes and swishy jersey fabric. I paired it with the sweetest skirt I own, but was pretty tempted to throw it over a white tee and denim for an always relevant formula.
