I could never really describe how hot it is in Philippines right now, the weather as I always say is unbearable at all levels. Layering and heavy clothes are not really what can recommend at the moment and that the only thing that I really want to do is to stay in bed with AC turned on and drink a really cold smoothie.

So anyway, on with the outfit, I wore a really light a breezy crochet top because of the various reasons stated in the beginning of this post and matched it with an black skirt because well, that’s the first thing I saw inside my closet. I wanted to achieve that “summer glow” look but I guess I need to exert more for that to happen. HAHA!

Okay, I know that my “bra” is showing off again, a choice wherein it can make or break your outfit. My original plan was pairing it with a black spaghetti tank top as my undergarment to avoid my bra showing off but… since it’s scorching hot and layering was not a good idea for ME, and I wanted to feel breezy as well so I opted not to use it anymore, so blame the weather!!! kidding. Anyway, I always have this kind of dilemma on what kind and color of undergarment I should have on when wearing a sheer top. Since I’m wearing a blue sheer top, I decided to use a black bra to balance it all out to complete the look and it matched my skirt as well. What do you think? Do you guys encounter these problems too? Any tips?

I would like to hear them.

Reality

cats

Sometimes I get completely obsessed with a non fictional character from a book or a movie. It’s always from a romance of course, my favorite type of movie/book. The character is always a type of man that all women dream of having.  A man who loves with his heart and soul. And when I experience a character like this, I get completely obsessed with them.

Silly things, like imaging a love so strong. Imagining if I were the girl in the movie and how my life would be. Or how it would feel to be loved so deeply by someone. It’s nice to step away from reality for one moment. That’s what I call my happy place and the song I posted in my last post helps me get there. But just like when the song ends, my happy place comes to an end and I’m snapped back into my harsh reality.

Reunions

Reunions, such occasions become rarer as we get older, opportunities that comes only with special birthday events, weddings, or just a simple gathering.

Life goes on, as the mind wanders with reflections on how time goes by so swiftly, such that in too many instances, before we get to realize each priceless moment, such moments would be gone and would not last forever. That’s why we must treasure each moment, set aside pride and prejudice, learn to love more and to judge less.

****************

Anyways, we went to a resort for a mini family gathering since my cousin from Taiwan went home. Since we’re not busy and it was Sunday, so… family day! :)

For my look, I just want to look casual. I’ve used this top, the snapback cap and bag once and it was at the time when I went to a reunion too. After 3 months, I’m taking it out for another #OOTD. One of the many reasons why I can’t seem to let some of my clothes go is because apart from its (sentimental?) value, I find ways to use them again. After all, I think style isn’t solely about trends, what’s hot and whatnot. It is about identity; finding who you are through the clothes you wear.

A girl can dream

CIMG6436

Exactly more than a year ago when I started, I was a shy girl aspiring to become somebody, who couldn’t even speak up what she want or when there is something wrong or she didn’t like or feel right about.

And look at me now, from this humble beginning which I will embrace forever because I know they serve a purpose, I might be a nobody now but sooner.. I will be there and I am ready to be that somebody.

About my OOTD, I don’t know what took me so long to put this up. Haven’t worn them in forever and the last time I wore it as I remember was 2013 New Year’s Eve. I only wore it once so when I can’t find something what to wear and since it’s already warm here, I grabbed it without any hesitation. I’ve been see-ing girls wearing pastels lately. I now understand the hype, they’re fresh to look at, simple, dainty, and modern and I loved it instantly.

behind the scenes

I love behind the scenes, knowing that behind every flash, the flair and amazing photos of every blogger are characters and personas or even a team who are amazingly dedicating their time to make every photo-shoots successful or photographs become well photographed.

I love the fact that how someone transform into entity like no other once in front of the camera because of a team behind it. I’m a naturally shy person before I got into this blogging scene. I’m not used to photo-shoots or my OOTD’s are being taken, how much more on posing on streets doing your typical yet laughable (when you think about it) blogger poses somewhere wherein there’s a potentially good backdrop for your photos. lol

Ever since I started my blog, I always have my brother with me, patiently taking my photos. The thing is, no one in my family is adept enough to maneuver a camera—be it digital, film, and what not, but only him. I may know how to handle a camera but if I want to take super narcissistic outfit shots of myself, I would have to rely on someone. Human tripod is much better than steel tripod. Agree?

I always experience that odd look coming from other people wondering what we are doing, lol. Days passed, I couldn’t care less. It gave me confidence.. but? sometimes the shyness in me do still trigger. lol Amidst all of this, one thing I realized is that, behind the scene is where a real story is happened, we may view all the well photographed photos all the time but the scenes behind it are much more memorable and worth remembering. It shows that beneath our clothes, and behind those photos we are all the same.

P.S. these photos are many of the behind the scenes photos I saved whenever I do some OOTD shots, forgive me if you find them horrible! I’m sure you guys have yours  too. Now look on those photos and remember all the fun and good memories behind it.

Have a great weekend everyone! :)
