top: MONKI, jeans & bag: TOPSHOP; shoes: STYLEDASHER

Let us breathe and let us tan as it is term break! I am finally free from hell of assignments and can finally sleep up to 14+ hours, a very very rare things you get once you're in college. Which is good, cos it makes me appreciate every lil things in life, like Burger King's double black-pepper with fries, or any sale racks.

P.S: totally out of the blue but I'm watching Monsters Inc. whilst writing this post. Makes me wanna be young forever.

And soooo in regards of my greatest love for college (note the sarcasm), I present you my college essentials...

numero uno. WHITE TSHIRT
well hello a simple plain white t's can really change your life. Its simple, minimal, and v v easy to mix-match with.

numero dos. MOM'S JEANS
I am in loooove with any kind of Mom's Jeans. Some of my friends thought I was pregnant while wearing it but I don't care, did you see how it makes my leg ridiculously long? #allthankstomomsjeans and plus, it looks very retro.

numero tres. TOTE BAG
For me, college means you have no time at all to just clean everything. So tote bag is my life basically. I'm also known as a lazy bastard and thus it helps me to just put everything in and...done!

numero cuatro. SLIP ON
College means laid back and casual (unless you're presenting your major project, then guuurl, you better look smashing from head to toe) so slip on is a must. Any kind of slip on works, just slide your feet in those beautiful pairs and you are READY.

"A well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men".

Admit it, there's nothing like a men in suit and fresh-cut hair that can make any women go weak at their knees.

Still won't admit it?
Try saying no after this.

I swear the last gif perfectly describe this post. Gotta love Gosling.

Anyway, what season other than fall could be better to suit up? 
And what could be better rather than BONOBOS' new men's suit collection?

Major A* for BONOBOS' suit this fall, with brand new fabrics and updated interior details into their signature Italian wool Foundation suit. Not to mention a more ergonomic interior pocket so grabbing that business card is as smooth as your first impression.

All suits come in Standard and Slim fits, and Short, Regular and Tall sizes, so you can always find the perfect fit for you. Buying suits has never been so good. 

What's not to love? 
Check their full suit collections here.
And for more info from BONOBOS click here.

Last but not least.... SUIT UP!

A quick outfit post before all my major projects are on due and everything will go nuts. This is basically my 'the calm before the storm' kind of moment.

Wearing my new love, this white H&M shorts with super-pretty lace embroidery.
Is it a crime to post the same short in 2 post consecutively? No it's not.

Okay it's getting weird and awkward...I blame my major projects for this!
Anyway, with all these projects and hectic days, I have absolutely no time AT ALL to find some cute booties (boots). With raining season coming, a girl gotta shop, right? ;)

And then on a fine day while sipping on my iced Caramel Macchiato (details much?), I came across this amazing ZALORA online store. They have almost everything I've ever wanted. Plus, all those eye-candy Boots are looking fine as hell.

This one from Marc & Stuart is one of my favourites. Leathers and zippers and all, badass level increase 200%. Although, I would never resist on getting all the other Boots...

So go check them out, who knows you'll be getting your dream shoes there....

2014 has been amazing so far. I'm more than blessed.

Got to travel to one of the most beautiful country in the world, Canada, and get to see two of my favourite brands live *screams internally* *what is life* *still can't believe it*

Movinggg on, before my fangirl-ing inner soul screams out, here's an outfit post plus a glimpse of

top: UNIQLO, shorts: H&M, outer: FOREVER 21; backpack: VINTAGE, shoes: CONVERSE, sunglass: SANDRO

Wearing one of my best find Sandro sunglasses (my friends call it bug-eye??????), which can match with everything basically. 

I absolutely LOVE how my kimono blends in with all the wildlife going on in the background. A total fresh and going-back-to-nature kind of look. Another essentials for summerlovin'. 

And of course, another essential for summer according to BOHOYOHO a.ka me, is KIMONO. Mid-length, floor-length, with or without fringe, ANYTHING.

Not just summer, but every seasons. Whenever the question "how bout a kimono?" pops out, just say yes. Yes yes yes yes. 

You can basically see how passionate I am if its all caps lock going on. #sorrynotsorry

Stanley Park, Vancouver
Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver
Grouse Mountain, Vancouver
Honda Celebration of Light, Vancouver
Niagara Falls, OT

It's all blue skies and chill vibes in Vancouver, meanwhile hustle and lively in Toronto.
Go for Vancouver if you're looking for somewhere to just lie on the grass reading novels and relax all day long. But if you're more of a city loving, night-out kind of peeps, definitely go for Toronto.

Another thing to love is how extremely friendly Canadians are. Not gonna lie, I totally got 'culture-shock' virus. They're all smiles and rainbows there, making your day 1000x brighter.

Shopping tips: Canada have almost EVERY brand you'll ever need. But shop more on Vancouver as they have lower tax! fav Canadian store: Aritzia, Browns.

Do some shop or sight-seeing too on Queen Street West in Toronto. BEST. VINTAGE. PLACE. Not gonna lie I almost plan to settle down there and just breathe in all those vintage smell.

"But see I am no criminal
I'm down on both bad knees
I'm just too much a coward to admit when I'm in need

I took a walk"

outer & dress: FOREVER 21, handbags: CHANEL, heels: JEFFREY CAMPBELL

So much had happened these past few months. Good or bad. 

Kind of a late post, but who cares I'm just gonna share it. 

July started pretty good actually. Buzzing with world cup euphoria and excitement. Gonna miss those time waking up at 3 a.m just to watch it. Shouting, screaming, laughing (sorry Sabella). And ended up half-awake in class. Yes, this is what Asian football fans feels, take note please! 

But what I'll miss the most is probably how beautiful it was to watch different nations, could unite, just because football. 

And another thing is those yummy football players. I can't help it but I'm falling really deep deep in love with ANY FOOTBALL PLAYERS.

*screams internally* 

On a lighter note, let's move to the outfit. 
Can't lie this must be my first or second time wearing a DRESS and a HEELS ever since I made my blog. I don't even know what hit me. 

I just woke up in a fine morning and think: oh my gawd i should wear this and this and this and oh my gawd its a skirt and heels melisa r u cray.
Woah world record: check. 

In case you didn't know, I love anything with ombre on it. Ombre hair, ombre shorts, ombre skirt, you name it. So yes, this pair of Jeffrey Campbell transparent-with-ombre heels is gonna be the death of me. And I'm gonna aside all my stereotypes of #tallgirlproblemswithheels just for you ombre heels. 

Basically, I try to make the shoot as 'heavenly' as possible, using my another addiction, the super-comfy high-low dress as the queen here. 

Because thats what summer needs to feel like.
