From Berlin to London to Jakarta

One of my goals this year is to befriend as many Indonesian bloggers as I can. And, although, I'd like to think mission accomplished since I do keep contact with some of them - and even hold a few dear in my heart, I hadn't had a chance to see them in the flesh and hang out with them like friends usually do. That is, however, until a couple weeks ago when Tasha of Taiyagi asked to meet up since she had some time off work. Okay, technically, she's not a blogger (anymore) now, but she used to have a blog of the same name - which, after looking it up, seemed to have vanished/been deleted. At the same time, as kismet would have it, my old friend Divina of Verwirrend aber gut - which you might have seen here, herehere and earlier this week here - was in town as well. So I invited her along and the three of us agreed to meet up at Museum Nasional or Museum Gajah (National Museum) to have a bit of a photoshoot and frolicking along the exhibition. It is the most renowned museum in Jakarta, but I'm ashamed to say I've only been here 3 times including this one - two of which were on a school field trip with assignments. Tasha is every bit as awesome as she seemed online and she hit it off with Vina really well too, so the day was quite an incredible one. It's so nice to be able to spend some time with people who love photography and style as much as I do - or maybe even more!

On to the outfit now: the blouse also comes from another blogger I quite recently managed to befriend, Jessica of Weirdo in Pink. She's more an illustration-blogger than a style blogger but her style - both in fashion and art - is absolutely adorable and resonates so well with me! This blouse, for instance, has a subtle floral pattern that is so adorable but not too in-your-face. It has this synthetic chiffon-y material, which is incredibly soft and breezy. The size is also very fitting for my current figure - which is, let's be honest, not the best - so I feel like I can see myself wearing this more often in the future. Thank you so much for the blouse, Jess! ♥ At the same time, this pair of pants just came back from the tailor. There were a lot of batik-patterned jariks - traditional fabrics, worn like a skirt by sewing the sides or wrapping around the waist - lying around the house, so I thought I'd turn it into a pair of pants instead. Sadly, this pattern was printed instead of hand-painted or stamped on with iron (re: Batik Conundrum), but at least I was re-cycling old, unused fabric. Cannot wait for another outing with these two! Also, if you want to be friends with me - wherever you live, whether you have a blog or not - please don't hesitate to say 'hi'. I love making friends!
