Red N White Flag Inspired

Note: This post is supposed to be published yesterday on August 17, but I got the schedule mixed up somehow to August 17, 2012! So today I'm publishing the post manually.

Today Indonesians around the world, whether they live in Indonesian or not, are celebrating Independence Day. So I thought I'd wear something that resembles our red and white national flag.
Here in Indonesia, of course it's a national holiday. (I wore this to work the day before) But I remember when I was basically a soujourner in a foreign land, me and other Indonesians from all kinds of ethnic and religious backgrounds gathered together at KBRI (Indonesian Consulate) to have a little bazaar. We would invite our American friends to feast on delicious Indonesian food, and for some reason, most of our non-Indonesian friends have this particular fondness for sate (kebab) and nasi goreng (fried rice), prepared and cooked Indonesian style with lots of spices!
Then on the Fourth of July, we took turns. Our American friends invited us to celebrate Independence Day with Amerian style BBQ. Lots of sausages, corn, and marinated meat!
Those are wonderful memories. If only the whole world could be filled with that kind of tolerance, friendship, and peace...
Anyway, dirgahayu Indonesia!
Happy Independence Day, Indonesia!

PS: How come this outfit turns out to look more like nautical-stripes-inspired instead of my national flag inspired? Oh, well...

Red and white striped long sleeved top: unbranded (ITC Mangga Dua). I rolled up the sleeves and cinched the waist with a red, wide Mango belt. Black pants: Ann Taylor LOFT (USA). White bow earrings: from Hongkong. Taupe double-breasted jacket: Papaya (USA). Gold bag: Bellezza. Gold sandals: Yongki Komaladi.

I think it's the belt that pushes it into "nautical" territory. Very cute outfit, nonetheless!
