Happy June! We kicked off the first month of summer with our last big trip in Asia -- a weekend in the amazing city of Hong Kong. As my mother's birthplace, this city especially hit home along with its strongly Western characteristics. Despite the intense humidity and overbearing crowds of people, Hong Kong has a certain character that is unmatched by any city I have visited before.
The highlight of our first day in Hong Kong was a trip up to Victoria Peak, a must-see when visiting the city. The views of the skyline are incomparable from 428 meters above sea level. To combat the city's impossibly hot weather, I wore a breezy off-shoulder top with a light pair of shorts. Who's with me when I say that shoulders are the new midriff? I have been so drawn to this silhouette lately, so be prepared to see more of it in future summer style posts. Until then, I'll be back soon with another travel diary from Hong Kong!
