TravelTalk : Good Shoes Take You to Good Places

~ Good Shoes Take You to Good Places ~

Well, i kinda agree with the above quotes. Since without good shoes, you cant hike mountains to see breathtaking sunrise, cant walk that far to explore the fancy city’s alleys, and cant take the long stairs to see the beautiful cityscape.

Talking about shoes, i have an interesting fact about myself. When most girls need more space to store their new pair of shoes, I am a girl who always find it difficult to have a nice pair of shoes. *Yeap, you read it right! Haha

Believe it or not, for now, i only have 1 pair of flip flop, 1 pair of  sneakers, 1 pair of long boots, 1 furry winter boots, 1 pair of  running shoes, 3 pairs of flat shoes, 2 pairs of kitten heels, 1 pair of wedges, and 3 pairs of heels (which i only use 1 pair frequently. Haha #truestory #dontjudgeme

Well, i dont know if it’s already a lot. But for me, it is not many at all, since all shoes are meant for specific event, and i frequently use 1 pair of my favorite flat shoes practically everywhere for my daily basis. Haha..

Morning Hike in Xiang Shan –  Taipei, Taiwan – 2016 with my striking pink Adidas Running Shoes.

*trying to find other travelling pictures with my only shoes on it, but can only find these three.. Haha*

Anyway, I am size 5,5 (US) – which is 35-36 in asia. Who got the same size as me?? Haha

This size is considered small even though im an Asian who lives in Asia. When i shop around in some shoe shops in Jakarta or Singapore, i always find that they dont really stock up a lot for my size. When there’s any, sometimes size 35 is too tight on me and size 36 is kinda loose. Haha. So,  i need to buy additional sole since it’s a little bit loose or have to let it goo since it’s too small! *Haishhh*

And  i really hate it when Often times, i find it comfortable when i  tried it in the shop, but it hurts real bad when i try to walk for hours. ~.~”

So normally, i would just come back to the same brand and probably same design with slightly different colour for my shoe needs. Awh Goshh, does this only happen to me? Lucky you if your feet can just fit to any brand!

I dont know if it’s too much to customised your own shoes, since most of the time, customisation is only for those who’s having leg problem or getting married.

But, i found this website FSJshoes that can custom your own shoes. From lovely wedding shoes to your fashionable walking boots! This made me curious, since they can do partial and full customisation, and they do ship worldwide as well.

What do you think, girls? What’s your favorite comfortable shoes? Will you go to custom your shoes too?

 

 

 

#TravelTalk : Travelling in Style

~ All that glitters is not gold, and all who wander are not lost ~ J.R.R Tolkien

Well, The title shows like i’m a socialites who travel glamourously. But, I am sorry that you would not see bling-bling in this post, nor heavy make up or branded goods from head to toe like princessyahrini does when she travels. Haha.

I’m just a girl who loves to travel in my style! and in this blogpost, i would love to share how i dress up when i’m out of town~~

1. Dress 

Believe it or not, i used to ONLY have 1 jeans in my wardrobe. *grin* So, whats inside it? A wardrobe full of dresses, skirts, shorts, tops and leggings. Yeap. Thats me! *Salam Kenal semuanya. HAHA

That’s why i will always bring dresses when im out, or else what else should i bring out? But to bring dresses when you’re out of town, is always a good choice. Since it can be carried out casually and neat at the same time. And if suddenly you happen to go to some fancy dining restaurant, you can just pair it up with a nice flat shoes or kitten-heels. OR just change your bag or backpack with a clutch!

2. Jeans Jacket

Eventhough i dont really wear jeans, i really love my jeans jacket! It is just ‘timeless’ piece, and just goes well with most clothes that i have. Perfect for Autumn, yet not so hot in summer time. And, if you follow my Instagram, you’ll realised that i wear this alottt.. It’s just super comfortable, even on long haul flights.

3. Necklaces and sweaters

Necklaces is a must bring item when im travelling. I have a lot of statement and chunky necklaces. I’m not a ring, bracelet or earrings person. Well, actually i love earrings too, but i guess not as much as necklaces. Hmmp, maybe there’s correlation with growing up as well. As i grow up, i fancy plain colours more than patterns, and necklace can really compliment my plain tops.

Somehow i love to see shirt that’s doubled with sweater. Preppy look, but still feminine at the same time, and it gives you a smart yet outgoing vibes.

4. High-waisted Bikini

I think this invention is super brilliant! High-waisted Bikini for a plump girl like me. haha.. Dont get me wrong, i still like the one piece swim-suit, but because my torso is longer than my leg, sometimes the one piece swim suit hurts my shoulder. =( Anyone on the same boat?

Gotten this bikini as a gift from a good friend of mine and love it to the bits. Now, this is a must bring item when im out in the sun. Well, actually im still not comfortable to walk around with just the bikini on my body (cause it still shown some of my meats. Haha) , so normally i will hang a towel over my shoulder, and voila, im ready to walk around the area!

5. Colourful Skirts

Since i have lots of plain tops, it will not be fun if i have another plain bottom to pair with, right? I dont know if im overly girly, but i love skirts! Just that i dont wear it a lot, since it’s not comfortable when you walk in Singapore and must be alert everytime the wind blows.

I love to wear skirts during autumn time, cause i can put on my stockings and less worry about the wind. At least they wont see my undies clearly. Haha.

6. Shorts and Sunglasses

Since i only have 1 jeans, you’ll see me more in shorts. I dont care whether im going to tropical countries or cold places, shorts will always be in my luggage. I will just double it up with thicker leggings if it’s cold and wear wool socks inside my boots. Haha

and Sunniesss.. Yes, i guess you guys already noticed that i wore my sunnies most of the time. To be honest, i dont wear it only when im travelling, but everytime when i feel that the sun shines so brightly outside.

7. Long Blazers and Loafers or Flat shoes

Long Blazers can be another options for thin-coats during the beginning of winter time. I normally wear long sleeves t-shirt or double my tank-top with cardigan (as use this blazer as 3rd layer) if it’s getting colder. Normally i’ll minimize the usage of coat if it’s not really needed, cause coats are heavy and bulky eventhough it’s pretty and warm.

Loafers and Flat shoes are just so me. I used to hate sneakers, i found it weird whenever i put it on me. Well, maybe because i use flats ever since i was in secondary school, so i found it weird to use sneakers if it’s not for sportswear. haha. When everyone complaint their feet hurts wearing flats, i feel weird in wearing slippers. Another fun-fact about me is i only have 1 slippers now. Haha. Anyway, i find loafers and flat shoes can be casual and formal as well. So, i dont need to bring a lot of shoes when im out of town, unless im going for a wedding party or do some hikings.
