I think every time I end up going to the Sobey's next door, I kind of always end up wearing this light military jacket. Before leaving, I got a phone call and thought that I would snap a few poses while I was on the phone. I'm actually super excited that I got the Preen X Aldo Rise shoes from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection! These shoes are amazing and I have to say that the quality is pretty good...it's comparable to a $300 to $400 pair but for only $155 + taxes!

I'm in the Kenzo sweater that I got from two weeks ago and Club Monaco jeans/legging/tights. I'm totally obsessed with the Kenzo cap recently, it's totally stunning, but it's just a little tad big for me. For some additional statements, I've added the chain necklaces and spike necklace that I made!

The final temple visit and the one that I found most interesting was Ta Prohm temple. The lost temple was hidden by vast acres of trees and now the temple itself is covered with trees from hundreds of years ago, giving it a tree blend of nature. Upon entering, I immediately fell in love with the large oversized tree roots that spurred and protected the temple against the test of time. Of course, one other reason why the temple is so famous is obviously due to the fact that Tomb Raider was shot here. I think this temple along made up for my whole trip to Cambodia. Whereas you can see ancient ruins and temples in most south Asian countries...but do you really get to see the miraculous integration between nature (tree roots) and temples everyday? No...and that is why you need to come to Cambodia to see it to live it.

I was playing with the three necklaces that I made myself last weekend, basically pairing it either with one chain, two chains or with the spikes. The focus of the outfit would be the necklace and shoes, the other parts are rather simple (e.g. simple white top and black jeans). You may notice that I wore two different pairs of the shoes. I originally wore the nude pair and then switched into the sparkly ones because they give the outfit a little more character.

After visiting the Angkor Wat, we made our way deeper into the jungle/forest to see the Bayon Temple hidden inside the ancient city that is now covered with trees beyond its gate. What is mysterious about this Buddha temple is that every face of the Buddha or past kings has a different expression. When going inside the temple, I spotted someone on an elephant. How cool would it be to take an elephant ride through the hidden tracks of the magnificent forest that protect the temple?

A visit to Siem Reap, Cambodia is not complete without a visit to the Angkor Wat, the largest Hindu temple. The old ruin is large and magnificent, and was it worth my time to visit? Definitely. If you decide to pay a visit, I think getting a tour guide would be the best to understand the stories and tales behind the carvings. The temple was never completed so carvings are only mainly present in the first gallery. I wasn't able to go to the third and tallest gallery as my dress was not over the knee.
