What is wrong with being childish?
Is it the lack of maturity, emotional instability, or the irresponsibility?
What about the spirit and purity children have?
What about their ability to dream high and enjoy the simplest thing?
How about keeping the child inside?

How do you feel when you finally had a chance to meet your long-lost friends?
When I woke up today I felt really good. I was excited to meet some of my friends whom I haven’t seen for a long time. The last time I met them, I dressed up smart casual almost every day. I wanted to change that.
I was in the mood to feel fun and playful like a child.
I only own 3 or 4 t-shirts. I used to only wear t-shirts as pajamas and I’m trying to change that. My last job had a strict dress code and required me to dress up decently every day.
I gave away many of my outfits including t-shirts to avoid wearing improper outfits. I have this blue horizontal stripes t-shirt with patches from Zara. Rocket, planet, and BAM! It’s extremely cute and totally BAM my heart the first time I saw it. The blue horizontal stripes aren’t really built from perfect solid lines and that what makes it more attractive. It looks like a sketch. When I saw this Zara t-shirt, I knew exactly the perfect bag to match it!
I definitely know a perfect match for Zara patches t-shirt! My ultimate bag for rainy days: Love Moschino Pop-Art Tote Bag which was inspired by Roy Lichtenstein comic book pop-art. It is made from some kind of waterproof material.
Moschino is an Italian luxury brand design and Love Moschino is one of Moschino’s label. Moschino has a very eccentric, creative, playful, and quirky design characteristic. One of my favorite collections is the ones which inspired by Bugs Bunny and McDonald.

I want to wear this cute yellow smiley heart earrings I had. I tried to use it on both of my ears, but I had this adorable cat earring (some of my friends argue that it was a raccoon). Why not wear both at the same time?
Deciding which bottom I should wear wasn’t easy. I played too much already and probably it would be a good idea to tone it down. I decided to wear my comfortable brown corduroy pants.
Shoes are usually the first thing I notice when I see people. Mom always reminded me to take care of my shoes or sandals and clean it. So many people often forget about it maybe because it’s located in the lowest part of your body.
Even when I’m in the mood of feeling playful like a child, I can’t change the fact that I’m already a grown-up lady. I want my look to be able to show how old I am and shoes can help me with that. I wear a pair of nude heels which looked like Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Classic Tribute Sandals Heels. It’s actually by Yongki Komaladi, an Indonesian footwear designer.

I shared “I Wear My Mood” with them, and I was so touched by how much they inspired me and motivated me to keep on doing this. Maybe it started only with my ego and my own needs; I need reasons to dress up every day.
Surprisingly, I discover many unexpected things and learn so many things when I wrote every single article I posted. It makes me want to read and hear the stories behind people’s look, appearance, and outfits they wear. Till now, I’m still dreaming of making “I Wear My Mood” something huge and important in my and other’s life.
I wear rockets on my heart and smiley love on my ears.
Somehow they help me to unleash my inner child, reminds me not to be afraid to dream and fly high to the galaxy I’ve never been.
I walk, run, and fall with my heels which stand with me when I started to grow up to become a woman.
Somehow it reminds me that no matter where my heart and thoughts are, I still live and stand on the ground.
