If you haven’t heard, Pantone recently announced its new Colour of the Year for 2017. It’s greenery. And it’s definitely nothing on rose quartz.
Let’s rewind a bit. Last year, Pantone surprised us with a blending of two shades, rose quartz and serenity. While I liked both colours, I didn’t like the fact that Pantone featured two at once… it’s not ColourS of the Year.
But I took a liking to rose quartz. In 2016, it became a popular colour in design and fashion alike.
Today, I’ll be showing you my favourite new jumper from H&M and surprise, surprise. It’s rose quartz. So what if greenery is in and rose quartz is out. It’s the 21st century and I can wear whatever I like!
Last time, I wrote a post on how to look put together in winter when you’re a lazy person. Bonus points if you, too, are like me and hate the cold weather. I can’t seem to find the motivation to doll myself up when it’s cold as heck outside.
But anyway, let’s cut to the chase.
Outfit of the Day
My outfit follows the lazy winter wear formula of a jumper, leggings and trainers.
I liked the outfit so much I wore it on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Yes, I did wear the same thing two important days in a row. I’m not even going to hide the fact that I am the world’s biggest outfit repeater.
Christmas Eve was on a Saturday this year, which meant I was free from my full-time job to attend my family’s annual tradition of having a Christmas lunch buffet at a swanky hotel. We went to the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel.
I spent such a long time picking out my outfit despite having a winter dressing formula because I tried to deviate from it that I ended up being one hour late. Oops. Obviously, my parents didn’t wait for me. They’d smartly decided to grub first.
On Christmas Day, I donned the same rose quartz jumper for a journey to Macau with Jason. We picked a really bad day to play tourist in the Vegas of China. It was a public holiday so the city was swarming with both locals and out-of-towners. The weather also acted up, and though it didn’t rain, the grey skies cast a dreary mood on the both of us.
We visited the Ruins of St. Paul’s and Senado Square briefly and basically spent the rest of the day trying to flag down cabs to get to our next destinations. Surprisingly, dinner made up for it. We weren’t expecting much for its price tag, but the Christmas buffet at 888 Buffet in Sands Macao Hotel was surprisingly good. Maybe our expectations were too low, ha!
And if anything, the only four photos we took in St. Augustine’s Square turned out pretty nice. The shade of rose quartz I was wearing totally contrasted well with the green and yellow walls of Macau’s old buildings, don’t you think? 😉
