Hello February! Time has gone so fast. The first month of 2015 finished in a blink of an eye and then it is a month of Valentine’s. January was a month of business and a hectic life, so I want to start February with an update of some fashion to my wardrobe. Normally I’m a fan of casual style that we can wear in everyday life, not only focusing on its comfort and longevity but also sophistication and elegance.
