It is soooooo hot! Summer has landed! Time to keep those jackets in a box and bring out all the shorts and tank tops. I love summer as much as I love the rainy season. During summer I get to wear those tank tops and shorts the way they are supposed to be worn without feeling cold. No layers to hide ’em!
It’s time to hit the beach or the pool, whichever you choose. Another thing that I love about summer is that I get to ride boats going fabulous beaches where you can just slow down, think about nothing and relax underneath the sun or walk around the shoreline with just the moon and stars as your guide. An advantage of living in a tropical country, you can never run out of beaches to go to! So, since, I’ve been itching to leave and take a break, I thought I’d welcome summer with a navy-inspired outfit.
I can’t take my mind of the road trip, the wind, the sea, the sand and all that jazz. I can’t wait!!! Vacations are sort of an escape. More than the family vacation, I’m thinking of trying to travel alone this summer. I’ve never done that…Maybe, this year is the year to do it.
Just pack-up and go!

So, my new wardrobe hunting begins…
One boring, Saturday afternoon, a friend invited me to go to Shang and shop. I told her that I would accompany her but I wouldn’t buy anything because I already splurged on a lot of things the previous week.
But what can I say? Girl Friend + Mall = Shopping. Nobody can really mess with that equation.
And… Can you actually resist these boots??
Yeah? Even if it was on sale??? Nah. Didn’t think so. Before my lifestyle changed, I would probably silently admire this and not buy it. But damn, now? I do wear it because I can and I have places to wear it to!
This is my new favorite pair of shoes. It’s just … love! Haha! This is definitely something unexpected for me! Yay! Thank you Els for pushing me to buy this! I wanna go back for the “almonide” one!!

The big project is over! Before I write about the luscious buffet I had last Friday, I’d just like to congratulate AP 24.07 for the release of Manghuhula. Also, thank you thank you for all those who supported us! 🙂
Anyway, I was invited to binge out on one of the biggest buffets here in Manila– Spiral Buffet at Sofitel. What to wear on such a delightful occassion?
1. Black: So you’ll always look thin even if you are sooo full. Hahah
2. For all the ladies out there, an A-line top or an empire one, to hide that bulging tummy when you’ve eaten almost everything the buffet has to offer. Hahaha!
I really, really loved the food at Spiral, Sofitel. What’s more is that I binged with my 2 great friends! The drive was worth it! I have never eaten that much since forver! And the dessert bar was just to die for!
Anyway, enough with the foodie. Hehe. I discovered a store (that’s apparently been here awhile already) called Tango. It’s a local store here in Manila that has 3 branches in Metro Manila. Anyway, their stuff is really, really great and with reasonable prices. I debuted it at the Spiral Buffet. Hehe. They don’t have a website just yet, though.
Oh, and Annie, I really, really, really love this clutch that you gave me!!!! 😀
Wee!!!! I’m back from the hectic world called work. Haha!

Have you ever placed yourself in situation wherein you just realize, “What the hell am I doing here?”
I have. Haha.
I went there, feeling oh so confident. I wasn’t really humiliated. But it was just a pair of shoes that wasn’t really the right fit for me.
It was just me seeing that, I was not meant to be there or at the very least I just didn’t belong there. When I was able to get myself out of the situation, I just found it to be plain funny! I mean, it was my fault anyway, I went there thinking I could actually pull-it off. But after a few tests, I heard myself saying, “What the hell am I doing here?” Hahahaha!
I was able to find my graceful exit anyway. Hehe. And what the hell right? After everything, I just said “Oh well!”, and shopped the day away! Hahaha!
At least, I was still wearing something fabulous! Hahahaahah! Oh, why am I so giddy?! Hehe.

As I was looking for something to wear last week, I stumbled upon this old bolero which I bought Christmas of 2007. I have absolutely forgotten that I had this and how much I loved it!
There was time that I would absolutely wear this with all the tank tops I ever had. For me, it isn’t the usual bolero that had capped sleeves and those that emmulate the typical polo-bolero.
More than that, I am a big fan of knitted fabric, so Iguess I really, really love this bolero so much!
I think I fll in love with the fabric and the sleeves. I love how it flows through my arms. Hmm… Gotta check the closet for some more forgotten items. 🙂

First of all, I’d like to thank my sponsor, Kia, for giving me this wonderful dress. Hahahaha!
During one of our Rummage Sale, while I was helping Kia sort out her stuff, I could not believe she was throwing it out! So I rescued the dress and took it home with me. I immediately knew what to do with it.
It IS bigger but with just a little adjustments here and there, its size created such a poofy, poofy skirt silhoutte—which I really, really love!
It also feels and looks like one of those classic 80’s dresses which I think I saw my mom wear in one of our photos.
I love this dress!! Only goes to show that another person’s trash can be another person’s treasure. 😉
Pardon the abundant photos— I really enjoyed taking pics of this one. 🙂

Just when it was declared here that Summer was over, Summer came back. And oh, the heat! ayayay!
Well, everything is just a door of opportunity, right? Anyway, I took this chance to wear this tube dress. Who knows, Summer might be suddenly over again tomorrow. Haha.

That song (in italics) is just stuck in my head but I don’t know who sang it or where I heard it. Sounds apt, though.
Definitely feeling much, much better! 🙂
