Oh Sweet Tan!


Hi Lovelies!

There is just so much positivity today which I would love to share with all of you. I know I have been missing out these past few days but let me make it up to you by posting a few collective outfit shots taken just a few days back in lieu of my new found love. Can you guess what it is?


  Many thanks to Geoff for taking these lovely photos.

Okay, let me tell you a secret. I have been cheating on my nude flats with these pair of neutral sandals which I found from Pill Footwear. When I first saw this baby, I could instantly think of so many outfits that could go with it! And with it's reasonable price, I knew right then and there that it would be an affair to remember. What do you think?

Floral Revival

Hi Lovelies!

Let me share with you something bright and colorful to start this week right. I just found these from my old stash of clothes and thought of doing a revival of the old ones instead of wishing to get a new set of clothes for a change. Honestly, I had a few regrets in this outfit. Maybe it would look better if I tucked it in and did a high waist style for my skirt. What do you think?

Top: Banana Republic
Skirt: Gifted
Heels: Style & Co.

Many thanks to AJ Yabut for taking these lovely photos!

Meanwhile, let me share with you my contribution to Nuffnang's #MoveItMonday:

"When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to acheive it."
- Paulo Coelho

This quote is really something that keeps me motivated on a busy Monday. It keeps me focused on my dreams and all the things I want to do and have. How about you, what's your #MoveItMonday? I'd love to know!

Skirts And Stripes

Hi Lovelies!

I was feeling the hobo vibe lately so I have decided to put up this ensemble inspired by Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere. Luckily I have this amazing black skirt that was gifted to me by my Aunt and paired it with a navy inspired top.

Check out my version of Emily's hobo chic look. That same day, I decided to make a high-waist version of this skirt. It went perfectly well. Too bad though I wasn't able to snap photos of it so I can share it with you.

Let me pose for you one last time while I enjoy goofing around with my skirt. :)

Hope you're all having a fabulous week! Happy Wednesday, Loves!

Peaches And Cream

Hi Lovelies,

Thanks so much for all the sweet messages over the weekend. I really felt so special with all the "I'm just here to talk." texts that I got from some of my friends. :) 

They say that sometimes, when you feel under the weather, all you gotta do is to put a little light pastel color on your outfit and all things will get better. Let me share with you a remake of  "To Tie A Knot" mixed with my peach pencil skirt which I scored from a surplus a few months back. What do you think?

Top: Esprit
Skirt: Surplus
Necklace: Gifted

I actually intended to tuck the polo shirt to the skirt but I guess the knot just gave the right amount of cuteness I needed that day. :)

Watch: French Connection(Gifted)
Nails: Orly's Take Him To The Cleaners

Heels: Gifted
 
Many thanks to Geoff for taking these lovely photos

Here's to a sweet start for all of you, loves! Wear something bright to kick start your day right! :)

Take A Break

Hi Lovelies!

Today is one of those days where you just don't want to deal with anything other than the book you are currently reading and some coffee. I don't have anything interesting to post but for the past couple of weeks that I've been trying to blog, I think this is okay. I can even tell you what I plan to do for the rest of the day: Reading, sulking into my favorite movies, try to hit the gym and maybe try and make a delicious pasta for dinner. But today, I have decided not to post anything too perfect. Just me and my thoughts. 

This is not about complaining how tiring the week had been. Being busy for me is a blessing. But right now I just want to take a break from everything and I hope this is alright with you.  This past year have been such a great run of so many things - the year I passed the boards, the year where I started working, and the year where I find myself blogging again.

Most of the time I have everything put together. Most of the time. But sometimes, that just isn't the case. And I just want you to know that. I'm sure you guys have had these days too so let me tell you this, It's okay to make mistakes and to take a pause to realize how these mistakes can course you back to who you really are and what you really want to become. It helps you find your sanity. Your own self.



This post is just a short reminder that not everything you see here is perfect. Heck, I've tried making good ones for you. But now is time to let you see the reality and bid Ms. Perfect goodbye just for today.

Bloggingly yours,
Mar
