Summer has finally started and I could definitely feel the heat of it as room temperatures hit 34 degrees C. Plus, malls are now updating the new arrivals in time for the season of bright & pastel colors, nautical stripes and floral prints. Although I have worn this ensemble during the college graduation of my Alma mater which was held on the early weeks of March, I have already injected summer trends, namely all the above mentioned. Yes. I have all three fit in the bill. I feel soo proud to tell you guys that this is one of my last minute assembled ensembles.
Now for the details, since the graduation was held at the UNC grounds, I've worn something I'll be able to move around with since I'll also be taking pictures which I failed to do so. This yellow striped top of mine is one of the gifts I have received for my birthday. My Aunt Lina who gave this to me knew I'm a big Forever 21 fan that's why she got me this top that would definitely not go out of style. Classic pieces like this are for keeps. You just have to work on which to pair with which.

Necklace: Personalized Accessories and Shoes & Belt: The SM Store
For this particular ensemble though my focal point was actually these cutesy floral shoes from The SM Stores's Solemate. Yes. One of the cutest pairs where when you buy two pairs, you'll save a hundred pesos. I got the red one and the blue-ish purple for my sisy Ara. I actually got the red because I haven't got a pair in one, so I grabbed the chance. Although I still wanted to get the other colors.
I knew it would be hard for me to pair it with my wardrobe since red is the least color that I have. Times like this, my improvising skills are tapped. I used primary (yellow and red) and neutral (black and white) colors to pair it with. I failed to include blue though because I don't want to be mistaken as mimicking the the Philippine Flag. I chose to include neutrals so everything would balance out by using this leatherette skater skirt of mine.
As for accessories, I've noticed that I finally grew out my exessorizing hobby. One evidence is by choosing just this acrylic mustache long chain necklace from Personalized Accessories, a watch and this red metal slim belt from SM Kid's accessories to adorn my outfit.
The whole ensemble actually reminded me of a school girl on a summer day. If had them earlier on my college days, I would have worn it at school for one of my summer classes.
As I was their to witness the ceremony of distributing medals and diplomas, listening to speeches delivered and watching the graduates raised their right hand and say their pledges, I still cannot believe I was in that very same place two years ago (minus the location though, ours was held at the UNC Sports Palace, major boohoo!)
I would love to take this opportunity to congratulate the UNC Batch 2014 for another new chapter to begin. I wish each and every one the best of luck for both the job seekers and board exam reviewers.
That is all for this post. I hope you guys like it. Don't forget to hype my look here.
Glitter kisses! xxx
