Remember, remember, the end of November

Today marks the last day of November and, according to the great HKO, this is when temperatures begin to fall below 20 degrees celsius. Also the time when we, Hong Kongers, believe it is cold enough to wear wool coats (with nothing but a t-shirt inside?) and quilted jackets.

When I ordered this pair of trousers online, I was expecting them to be navy and white.  But somehow they turned out to be black and white. I've ordered a blue suit from Zara sometime this year and when I was all excited to open the package, it turned out to be navy. I guess it's clear to say that, nowadays, I have my doubts when it comes to online shopping...

I rarely wear weird-looking trousers as I never felt trousers deserved attention. It is difficult alone to wear patterned tops repeatedly for a week, let alone seeing the same people at lectures (I'd feel the fear of being tagged as 'the boy in the striped jumper'). The remedy is to wear black jeans and only black jeans. And so, to award this very much one-off occasion, it only seems fair to match them with a basic white top and smart sandro shoes. One of the few downsides of studying abroad is the fact that my wardrobe here is probably an eighth of my wardrobe in Hong Kong. I constantly regret not bringing that coat and, strangely enough, my Christmas jumper. But the upside is probably the fact that I manage to max out the price per wear ratio.

 I've also recently bought 6 turtlenecks from Topman due to my indecisiveness when it comes to online shopping. Sigh. But hey, you'll probably catch a smirk and a half due to my multiple failed attempts of Bryant's instruction 'to do a cover face'.
