In Citrus

It's so hard to feel morose when I'm decked out in two of the most cheerful colors ever known to man: yellow and orange. Well, to me, at least. I know a few people who will flat out say black and grey perks them up. As for me, I'm perfectly content looking like a citrus-flavored cupcake.

What color gives you a temporary high?

Pastel Frocks and Sunny Afternoons

I love February not because it's the love month but because of weathers like this. It's our version of spring so pardon me if I'm enticing you with pastel dresses and mildly sunny afternoons. If only it will last forever.

I've been enjoying married life so far although it was tough adjusting to a new home, new faces and new routine. I was completely struggling to keep up with my old schedule but the husband tends to disrupt my usual routine. I even have to adjust to having cats around. Husband has three cats at home!

We do a lot of cooking these days. lol. And planning. So much planning. We have yet to have a proper honeymoon. We're thinking Disneyland! That's what's getting me excited. hehe.

Have a great weekend!

To The Lighthouse

The first time we went to the lighthouse, there was a cranky old man who took away some of the fun of shooting there. It's really a beautiful spot to take photos so this time, we just used the lighthouse as a backdrop and shot on the road. It's actually not frequented by a lot of people so no cars! 

This is as F/W as I can get here in the Philippines. My top and skirt are both thrifted, my bag is a vintage find and my beret is from an online store I can no longer remember. Hope you liked this outfit!

Barely Gone

You know that feeling when you leave your house for a few months and you come back to everything familiar but find that a strange, alien, otherness has crept in? That's what I feel like returning to blogging. But worry not. This is just me revving up my rusty blogging system after my self-imposed hiatus. 

With my wedding over and done with (not that I found the whole thing an ordeal, mind you) and I have somehow settled in (barely, if we're going to be specific, as my entire truckload of clothes are still in their temporary homes), my focus is now back to primping. I want to bury the past few weeks of wearing jeans non-stop in the deepest recesses of my mind, so sick and tired I am of the utilitarian style I have been adapting as of late. 

Anyhow, I'll be posting wedding photos soon. I won't inundate you readers with too many of it and I won't be turning this into a wedding blog but I'll be posting just enough to give you an idea on how I got hitched to my best friend/outfit photographer/personal assistant/partner in crime. 

In the mean time, please make do with these photos my husby took from our last Baguio trip. I think the focal point of this outfit (in my eyes tho) is my outerwear. I went thrifting a couple of weeks back, looking for a vintage dress of sorts to wear for my wedding prep. I chanced upon this coat purely by kismet. I've been a fan of System coats since I started turning my Kdrama fashion addiction to business. 

And these oxfords. Aren't they super cute? No? Am I the only one with a fringed oxfords addiction? ehe~

I'll be back with more stories, for sure. Hope that last photo of the unpalatable okonomiyaki is enough of a finishing touch!

Something Blue

top and skirt: thrifted! | shoes: old from Fashion | bag: from a local shop

I did some wedding-related traveling this weekend and this was one of the outfits I hastily coordinated. I'm just glad I'm starting to wear all the clothes I've been thrifting. I picked up so many clothes from thrift stores and have a plethora of coordinated outfits but since I'm doing a lot of errands lately, I tend to just go out in comfortable jeans. 

Despite doing a semi-major closet purge, I'm still left with a brimming closet. I did, however, manage to get rid of bags that are no longer functional and got myself some new ones. One of them was this super cute blue bag from a local store that has an adorable bow detail!

Also, It's down to two months until the big day! Anxiety-riddled people and big events like weddings do not really go so well together. You can just imagine how panicky I've gotten when I realized it's November already. It seems like yesterday when I announced our engagement in this blog and felt confident about the 7 months of preparation. 

I might as well enjoy the rush while it's still here, eh? Anyway, I'm hoping to squeeze in more outfit shoots but do check out my instagram for slightly more regular updates. Hope you guys are all having a great weekend!

Flower Power

Dress: from a local store | Yellow Cardigan: thrifted | Bag: Nina Ricci (vintage I got from a thrift store) | Shoes: Fashion | Hat: from a store in Baguio | Eyeglasses: Divisoria buy

Wohoo another outfit post! Can we just take a moment to appreciate this sudden diligence in blogging? :D

Actually, I just squeezed these outfit shots in between taking couple photos for our guest book and practicing for our engagement shoot. Myk and I decided not to have our engagement/prenup photos taken by a professional photographer because of two reasons: 1.) We wanted to cut down on costs and 2.) We wanted to be as creative as we can about the whole thing and get as much fun out of it for future fond memories.

It's down to three months 'till the big day and my hands are so full. I'm always constantly wishing there's a day between Saturday and Sunday so I can accomplish more.

Anyway, I hope you guys like the outfit. I forgot to photograph details of my thrifted cardigan. It has a cute scalloped lapel and ribbon at the wrists. Also, it's been a long time since I've worn my thrifted Nina Ricci bag. It's still one of my best thrift finds. I also have an authentic Lanvin envelope clutch that I bought for so cheap.

That's it for now. Hope you guys are having a great weekend!

Boyfriend Shirt

shirt: Myk's | skirt: thrifted | bag: thrifted H&M | shoes: SM Department Store

Have you guys watched the Korean drama It's Okay, That's Love? Well, this outfit is inspired by Gong Hyo Jin's style there. I never thought I'd wear a tube midi skirt one day, but here I am, wearing one, and feeling great in it. I was worried it will make my legs look even more stunted but surprisingly, I looked okay in it. 

You might have seen this shirt from my instagram account a few months back. I bought it for Myk. I was so smitten with the design, which was fashioned after the Snellen Chart but with the words "The Only Thing Worse Than Being Blind Is Having Sight And No Vision" written over it. I just had to wear it once. I just HAD to! hehe. But I guess after getting married, I'd have more chances of wearing it. 

I know this looks so summery but on the days when it's not raining, it actually feels like summer here in the Philippines! That watermelon tote was a lucky find at the thrift store. It's an H&M piece and looked so dirty, I had to soak it in laundry soap water for days. 

I'll be updating our new site soon for wedding details. But worry not, this blog will still be alive for my outfit posts and whatnots.
