Floral cardigan: c/o Stephieshop (this one is sold out)
Sequin clutch: taobao.com
Does anyone else have a large number of really lightweight, thin jackets and cardigans dominating their wardrobe? To many, such garments seem impractical and redundant for providing minimal warmth and beg the question: "why not just wear a shirt?" I'm actually a huge fan of these sheer, chiffon cardigans because you get to add an extra layer of 'interestingness' (for lack of a better word!) to your outfit whilst still keeping cool in the summer time. This one from Stephieshop has just the prettiest floral design on it, and without it this plain red dress would've looked quite dull and unexciting by itself.
You may have noticed that I look unusually pale in some of these photos! The sun that day was blindingly hot and bright, and the light ended up being super harsh. Combined with the oriental background and prevalence of red in my outfit, the phrase "china doll" leapt to mind.
