[Outfit Post]: A Love Story

"We were both young when I first saw youI close my eyesAnd the flashback startsI'm standing thereOn a balcony in summer air..."

...See the lights
See the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
And say hello, little did I know...

Taylor Swift's Love Story kept playing in my head every time I look at this sweet laced top. Perhaps it's because of the very dainty lace and sheer number going on in this piece that reminds me of princesses and ball gowns. When I found this top online, I was love struck! And despite my pseudo online shopping-fasting then, I broke my vow right there and then because I knew I wouldn't be able to sleep right if I let it go! :p *sigh* #shopaholicproblems 

It was the same feeling of undue anxiety when I saw this cute salmon pink skirt/short/skort (whatever) in the same online store. And since Summer is just around the corner, I need to have more colors in my closet! I recently developed an intimate relationship with skorts. They look feminine enough like a skirt, and the shorts functionality gives you the ease of movement. You can walk, run, dance and tumble without having to worry that you'd be giving the public a flashy show!

I thought this skorts would be a perfect match for this top. Elegant + Cutesy = Me! :p With the help of Johanna Ericka (baby bear), what will you get? A Fabulous Geek! XD

Dad and Mom's 27th Wedding Anniversary ♥♥♥

My family and I went out to lunch yesterday in celebration of my parents' wedding anniversary. Actually, it was on the 26th but due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to move the lunch out to Sunday. Also, it was supposed to be a special treat since this is the first time that I'm taking them out somewhere on this very occasion. The original plan was to take them to Cocina Juan (read more here) since that's the best place I have in mind: good food, nice ambiance, something new for them :) I wanted it to be memorable. I even researched some reviews from food bloggers and jotted down their personal picks. Unfortunately, we got stuck in a traffic jam caused by the Sto. NiƱo processions in Tondo. It was unbelievably long, we were stuck for an hour and it was already almost 12 noon. My mom was getting nauseated and hungry. I was getting really hungry and dizzy as well, and irritated. We had no choice but to drop at SM North Edsa instead as we can no longer endure another 15 minutes or so of travel to Philcoa. After scouting for restaurants, which were already full, we ended up at Kangaroo Jack.

Dad's Tanigue something :p

My Potato Chowder soup. It was so creamy and thick, it was like eating coffee froth!

Brother's Sirloin steak

My Bulalo Steak ♥

Mom's Cream Dory ♥

To be honest, we had a really good time at Kangaroo Jack. The food was great, the place was nice. My brother loved it! Mom enjoyed her Cream Dory Meal, I can tell :p So after one extra ordinary lunch, I insisted to go shopping! lol (My shopping fasting was an epic fail, hypocrite!)

And of course, wouldn't end this post without senseless vanity shots. Sorry for the inconsistent photo sizes :p
