Happy Friday!  I hope your week is going well!  It's my second to last day in Vietnam as we are heading back to Hong Kong for a night tomorrow before flying back to the US.  I don't think anyone is ever ready to leave vacation, but I'm definitely not ready to go home.  I feel like we have barely scratched the surface of Vietnam as there are so many other places in country to visit (Saigon, Hue, etc).  One week is definitely not enough to fully experience this country.  This was my first time in Southeast Asia and I can't wait to come back! 

I wore this dress to dinner in Hanoi earlier in the week with my friend.  I rarely wear orange, but this dress caught my eye at my favorite boutique.  Dresses are so easy for summer and I can never resist interesting detailing so this dress obviously had me at hello!  Thankfully it is also forgiving as we ate a little too much at dinner... The food here has been amazing and I've discovered several new favorite dishes (hello pho and green papaya salad!).

Vietnam has taken me out of my comfort zone of Europe and the Caribbean, but it has been a very interesting and amazing trip.

Have a great weekend!

  13. how amazing that you got to spend time in Vietnam! It is definitely one of the places I would love to visit one day. =)
    The orange dress looks beautiful on you. Ironically, I purchased an orange top recently that I love. It wasn't until I "wrote about" the top on the blog that I realized it's not a color I own much of. It's so pretty though!

  24. I love your style! Now this dress is the proper way to wear the color orange, if you would call it that, which I am usually apprehensive about. Thanks for sharing.
