Siblings to Love

Today, I woke up early as if I have work today. I was up and ready for a morning walk when I had this better idea of blogging the day away. (I feel bad I haven't got my running kicks, Luffy, a trip to the park just yet.) But as I sulk neglecting my sporty self, an inspi has struck me for the time to blog about a very special day not just for my sister but also to my mom and the whole family.

It has been a month since my sister left the portals of her alma mater. She graduated with flying colors having been recognized for both her academic and clinical achievements, in the field of Physical Therapy. I have always wanted to make my family proud like she does. But that's the thing with having siblings. I have come up with this theory that God gave us siblings to love for us to be able to give what our parents desire to have. Noticed how each sibling has something unique to contribute in the family? So, if you're an only child, you sure have everything your parents could ask for.

And as I graced the special day of my sister. I wore something extra special to that very day. Wearing off-shoulder tops are my go-to when attending special events. Remember the ever so famous Sabo tops that trended with online shops? I went gaga over them that I chose my design for my brother's wedding with such cut. Speaking of online shops, I found this design of top that captured my heart like the Sabo top did. Grab your Ootd, an online shop I've discovered on instagram showcasing trendy dresses, tops, and bottoms, made it possible for such top. Their best seller chiffon pleated tops are just one of my new faves. And planning to get more of it in different colors. I have invested with a white one, for now.

Wore it for my sissy's big day. I paired it with a printed midi skirt and my Valentino-inspired, Sadie flats that I got from A Girl's Haven, another instagram shop that I discovered with such good finds.

Considering that day was a rainy one, I can't help but to thank my comfy ensemble to survive that day. I was also the photographer and I haven't encountered a single problem. Thanks to the hassle-free straps of this off shoulder top and one of the comfiest pairs despite the pointy and muli-strap design. 

I like how the whole look is sophisticated despite the baring shoulders and would have to thank the sleeves for giving such vibe to the outfit. Also, I think the mid length of the skirt also contributed. I opted for my pointy shoes because I'm afraid the added length of the skirt might get me look shorter than ever esp. that I spent my waiting hours with my really tall little brother and my already taller than me sister and mom are both wearing three inches pair of heels. And I have to rely on the illusion of making myself look taller with the pointy shoes. 

And as I end this post, I just want to share that we all have the time in our lives when we think one is favored than the other, especially when it comes with among our siblings. Let's forget about this thought because I believe that we all have a place in our parents hearts. It doesn't matter how big our family is, may it come to numbers, or even sizes. We all fit in our Mom and Dad's hearts.

That is all for this post. I hope you guys like it.

Summer Hues

My month long hiatus from blogging ends today. The past month has really been a roller coaster ride for me, family coming and go, school days ended for my lil sister and summer vacation for everyone except well, for me. Another busy season for us since Annual ITR deadlines, a week from now, is now coming.

But as I have a few days of break from work, I am sick in bed, dealing with a really bad throat matching with cough and colds. I do feel lucky enough that my fever this morning is now gone. It must be the sudden change in weather that made my immune system weak. So, I'll prolly be staying in bed for the rest of the weekend for me to feel up and about for work this coming Monday.

And as I stay in bed, I want to be productive, too, by composing a post for the opening of another summer season. I know it has started weeks ago with the extreme sunny weather, that temperature rises up by the hour but it just feels like the summer for me starts after Easter.

According to Pantone, the Spring/Summer colors for 2015 is more of cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. Understated brights, pastel hues and nature-like neutrals would set the center stage for this years color wheel spotlight.

And so, I joined in the summer color fun in the said Spring/Summer 2015 trends.

Tropical prints are our summer prints to go along with nautical stripes, bright florals and flashing neons this season. As for me, I'll prolly be sporting my first love which are pastel hues and neutrals for this year's summer or should I say, for almost the whole year round. Since, Philippines a tropical country has more summer days compared to rainy days. Although we are facing another tropical depression this very day. Praying for every one's safety especially to our kababayans in the northern part of Luzon.

One must notice how I've been sticking to wearing trousers or anything not exposing a large part of my legs. You see, after visiting the hot spring resort, I again got a hold of the sand flies that gave me icky looking bites. They're that horrible that I had to sport capri pants, jeans, midi skirts and maxi skirts for the whole summer.

The story of this ensemble though is all about dressing for comfort. A breathable sleeveless top which is one of my Aunt's hand me down clothes. I paired it with a capri pants in green. The clue in pairing printed tops with colored bottom is choosing a color that is already present in the print for complementing purposes. You don't want to wear crashing colors that would be an eyesore to everyone.

To top it all off, I used my already overused pair of glitter oxfords. I'm actually in a search for a new pair of oxfords that I could pair with my wardrobe like this one. If you know where I could get one, comment down below. Back to the outfit, I also used the classic leather sling bag that I could fill every essentials I need.

As for accessorizing, barely there accessories like this translucent bead necklace is just one key pieces for me not just to feel comfy with my finish ensemble but also to look comfortable. Don't you love the shine finish effect this necklace gave? Also, I used a chain bracelet in mint green and just my everyday also translucent looking watch.

I am really happy that it is once again summer where you have an excuse to wear beach laid back outfits to the mall or even when meeting with friends. This year's color trends are very much wearable all year round. You just have to match the right key pieces in order to still look put together. Also, it does't matter if you follow the trend or not, the more important note for dressing up is dressing for yourself. 

That is all for this post. I hope you guys like it.
