[Outfit Post] ; Party Party Party Mamma Mia!


Hi Guys! No I am not and I did not attend a Party. I was just listening to KARA's comeback single Mamma Mia, hence the title because I honestly couldn't think of a reasonable title for this outfit post. And also, yes you're right! I'm trying to promote the song too lol. But seriously, listen to it, it's addicting haha. Anyhoo!!! Another hiatus has come to pass. More than one month of absence once again from my blog and unlike before, I swear, I did not come to notice it had been that long already. Perhaps because I was too pre-occupied with office work and some projects here and there concerning my promotion. I am extremely exhausted from all the work but I reckon it is still better than babbling yourself to boredom. I was productive, at the very least. And due to all the stress and late night sleeps, I grew a number of bright red humps on my face. My eye bags and dark circles had become more prominent and it seems I have aged several years. Now, now, I would not at all want to just throw resentments in this comeback post. In order to conceal the now 50 year old looking me, I decided to flaunt a youthful outfit.






I had long since wanted to wear this beautiful, body-hugging skater dress. I had worn it once at the office but it was really short and I ended up being reprimanded. Not to let this beauty be stuck in my closet, I have finally decided to wear it today. I had never worn Brown and Red together previously and I see now that they make a great combination. To be more comfortable lurking around the mall, I wore this shiny red flats, which I bought the same day, and paired it as well with this fiery red tote! Come to think of it, considering my immense affection for bags, I had never owned a red bag. It was quite absurd and I had never even noticed it. Then again, I have one now. All thanks to LookSmart Shop. Whenever a sudden urge to grab a bag comes up, their shop is the first thing that comes to mind. No Other. Even my baby Pink Celine-inspired Bag was from LookSmart Shop as well. I actually have another bag, the latest one in my closet, but it's beauty is beyond words and I do not have the heart to overuse it. So I intend to flaunt that bag only during special occasions. Worry not, you will definitely take a glimpse of it here :) So let me know your thoughts about this outfit! Personally, this is one of my favorite

[Outfit Post] ; One Preppy Day ♥

“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes." 
~ Yves Saint-Laurent


Truth be told, I am also fond of wearing denims despite their non-existence here on my blog. I am too lazy to review my past outfit posts but I believe I have NEVER posted one with denims on, until now. I have this unconscious discrimination against denims in blog posts, that they're not dressy enough to be featured. Nevertheless, I guess it is about time to do so. I can no longer deny the fact that less is indeed more. I may have been walking around with too much decoration. (Read: Layers and layers of clothing, piles and piles of accessories or prints and colors here and there). But I do go out in simple outfits too, like this one. A comfy pastel top, denim shorts and sneakers. Boom! Preppy. Lol. What do you guys think? Let me know your thoughts

[Outfit Post] ; Our Song ♥♥♥


"Our song is the slamming screen door, 
sneakin' out late, tapping on your window.
When we're on the phone and you talk real slow,
'coz it's late and your Mama don't know.
Our song is the way you laugh,
the first date "Man I didn't kiss her when I should have".
And when I got home, 'fore I said Amen,
asking God if He could play it again."

 ~♥~♥~♥~

This is the first attempt to insert a YouTube video in my post. Attempt because I am not your usual techie blogger and I honestly did not know how to do it. And why this song you may ask? I say I love Taylor Swift and this is one of my favorite love songs of all time. It is simple, country, fun but very meaningful. The words seemed to be written by a teenage girl who fell in love for the first time. And I do hope that today's post will show John, the best boyfriend in the world, how I am still in love with him just like the first time I saw him. Honey, I know you're reading. I demand you to watch this video and listen to the lyrics. *insert puppy eyes* 





   I have mentioned in my last post that John and I were about to celebrate a post 4th year anniversary date, should the weather permit. I probably should not have said that at all as the rain poured so hard on that very day, leaving me with no other choice but to once again, cancel out and defer the date, much to our dismay. It is disheartening, isn't it, how you are unable to spend that one very special day together. I honestly could not wait to be with him for the rest of my life and do all sorts of extraordinary things while travelling to extraordinary places. Such a fanciful reverie. Oh you know how one can suddenly say the cheesiest of things when you are in love, just like what I am doing at this point. But no regrets here! I had been feeling all giddy and sweet every day since we have passed through the four year mark. I have heard things that when a couple reaches their fourth year, they are bound to end up together. That would be so beautiful.In any manner,I am not trying to deviate too much from the concept of this outfit post, since all those sweetness mentioned above will likewise be evident in this Top and Skirt I wore last Saturday.







      What could be sweeter than a pair of pastel Peach sheer blouse and mesh skirt? Wearing both pieces made me feel like a ballerina princess on off-duty! I was very fortunate and humbled to receive this tulle skirt on my mail a couple of weeks ago. I had been eyeing tulle skirts for quite  some time and just when I thought I could no longer find the piece that would make my heart flutter, Moca Apparel sent me one! Imagine my thrill when I opened my package, I was extremely happy. The skirt is perfect for all sorts of occasions such as romantic dates and weddings. Why, I could even think of a sporty ensemble wearing this! You may be thinking at first that you can only flaunt this during formal events but honestly, this is very versatile. Don't let its pastel shade and tulle material fool you. It can give any outfit that extra punch of sweetness and fun! Go and check out  Moca Apparel's page, you can find them on either Instagram or Facebook. They still have this skirt available in various colors such as White, Black and Gray. They also have the very popular dolphin shorts in such young and playful prints!







 After watching Guardians of the Galaxy, I have thought of going to ROC for lunch. It is my top-of-mind go-to restaurant if I was in the mood for coziness and such. Unfortunately though, there was an event being held at the place, and we didn't want to spend an Al Fresco lunch in a searing 2 PM heat. So we headed back to the mall and ended up eating at The Chophouse. It was still cozy and is definitely one of our favorites. I regret not being able to finish my meal though as I had a heavy meal while watching the movie. *sigh*

           

                
So please leave some love and tell me what you think of this post. I would love to hear from you!

[Outfit Post] ; Of Heavy Rains, Long Due Rest and Peach Dresses ♥

"Anyone who thinks that Sunshine is pure happiness, has never danced in the Rain"
~ Anonymous

As it is this time of the year in the Philippines when you can almost no longer see the sun rise, and only dark clouds and heavy rains can be seen or heard, one can only wish to stay indoors, in bed, reading a good book while drinking a cup of tea. That would be quite dreamy, for me at least. How I wanted that kind of scenario! But no, despite the strong winds that can almost lift me off the ground, and I would be completely drenched in my corporate clothes, smelling like a bag of salt, I had no other options but to just open a huge umbrella, tread through the flooded streets while praying intently that I do not get myself Leptospirosis. Today, I am on day-off which is great since, aside from the fact that there is again a heavy downpour, I will finally get myself a much needed rest. I see that I will be sleeping the entire afternoon, or perhaps play my favorite Google games. Probably anything that could ultimately take my mind off from work, as these past few days had taken its toll on me. I will be taking the most out of this day and hopefully, tomorrow, the rains will stop as John and I will be going out to spend a post-Fourth Year Anniversary date. Such random things to say actually and pardon me, my mind has been locked out and set up on one thing: REST. So I'm leaving you guys with this simple outfit post, which was due a few months back. These photos had been in my files for far too long, my hair was still very short if you will notice. If you can recognize this peach mini dress as well, it was included in this post. I have mentioned previously that I would most likely be selling this since it was quite short, then again, I had a change of heart. I kept it and will just think of other ways on how to wear this piece. I guess that would be all for now. Leave a comment below if you liked it!
