it is time to bid adieu to summer once again, to pack up all unworn shorts, buying black tights in bulk and embrace the unpredictable weather in taipei. but not before one last outing! we got in the car over the weekend and headed to yangming mountain (陽明山國家公園) to be surrounded by some beautiful chinese silvergrass!
a very simple outfit i wore to the library, followed by a stroll in the park. i rediscovered this eddie bauer sweater i thrifted a few years ago in my closet back at my parents’ house. and i still like its soft colors and the simple stripes! don’t you just love that? rediscovering old pieces you can utilize again in your own closet? it’s almost like buying new things, only with the added benefit of being free this time around… well i certainly do!
Posted on 10/13/2013 in: Outfits|Comments Off on [Outfit] Taipei543 x Neon Run
i was invited by Christine at Taipei543 to share a Neon Run outfit with y’all. to tell the truth, i’m not a big runner myself, but that sure doesn’t stop me from slipping into a comfortable casual outfit from time to time! for those who don’t already know, Neon Run organized by Taipei543 will take place on November 16th at Machangting Memorial Park in Taipei. it’s going to be a 5K night run with art & music. you can find more information at the end of this post!
chances are i won’t be able to take part that night, but here’s what i’d wear if i were to go (hope you dig!). the run will be held in november, which means it can get chilly at night. i opted for a pair of leggings and a hooded top in case it rains, and of course the top is in light colors because we all know wearing dark colored clothing out at night is a stupid idea. but then the run takes place at a riverside park where there’s no traffic so you can wear whatever you like =) the striped hooded top was actually a hand-me-down from a guy friend, i brought it home, cut off the bottom part, and now it’s a cropped top! the shirt (do excuse the wrinkles) around my waist is just to cover up my bum on the way (most likely taking MRT then bus) to the event! it comes off when the run starts, and if it gets cold you can wear it as a thin jacket! and finally, no Neon Run outfit is complete with a pair of neon colored running shoes! i have on a pair of Nike Free 3.0, light, flexible, and totally comfortable to walk and run in!
hope you all will have a great time that night! happy running =)
i live in vancouver and taipei. i love guitar and roadtrips. sunshine and the beach. cupcakes and coffee. indie music and foreign films. i want to scuba dive at the great barrier reef and speak french in paris.
