Summer and the City

August 1, 2017

Summer is officially here guys! Although I know it’s always and will always be summer in Indonesia. πŸ˜‰

Do you have any plan yet ? Summer vacation by the pool with bikinis on maybe? or time to upgrade your summer outfit ? Well, to be honest, talking about summer, it’s a totally love-hate relationship.

I know it’s freakin hot these days and I tend to get annoyed easily during hot weather, but for me the advantage of living in tropical weather country is you can always show some skin, play with colors, and you don’t need to wear something heavy right? PLUS , you have “lifetime” chance to enjoy a cup of gelato without worrying you’ll get cold later on.

Few days ago, I was really craving for something really sweet and fresh after some days just eating mostly veggies and fruits, and… some meat. There are a lot of dessert cafe around Surabaya actually , but they’re just too far from my office or home, and I’m kinda lazy to drive to center. *TRAFFIC JAM GAME got very serious lately*

Then suddenly, I remember there’s a gelato cafe not too far from here. I haven’t got chance to visit that place, they’ve opened almost a year ago I think. Well, if you live in west Surabaya, then I bet you know this gelato shop. It’s Frut-o Gelato, located at LOOP area, between Martabak Mafia and Chimac restaurant.


The place is so cozy and cute. They do really put attention on cleanliness and brightness as well. What makes it interesting for me, they decorate the interior with customized wallpapers and it explains how the gelato is made, so it feels like you get the knowledge about gelato through visual design.


Many flavors of Gelato are offered, and I chose caramel popcorn and lime cocktail flavor since I usually like to put 50% sweet and 50% fresh or sour taste to my gelato LOL! It was feel like heaven to me and I enjoyed it a lot.


Anyway, I took outfit of the day as well! This time, I tried to create summer look that suitable for city vibes. I wore off shoulder top that I got from ESYE. One of my favorite from their latest Spring/Summer 2017 collection. The fabric is very light and thin, what makes it even unique, the strap on the shoulder is made from long lace that you can tie and adjust by yourself. What a detail!


Along with A-Line bottom skirt from Stradivarius, I put a belt that I bought from Korea. To spice my outfit up, I combined it with hoop earring from H&M, glasses from Bamboo Blonde and white platform heels from Urban and Co.


I had a “one fine day” that day. What about you ? Have you had your gelato today πŸ˜‰ ?

Place : Frut-o Gelato ( Jl. Mayjen Yono Suwoyo No.100P LOOP area, Surabaya )

ESYE’s top style code : Freya Floral Top in navy color.
