“Red is the first color of spring. It’s the real color of rebirth, of beginning.” – Andie Condie
The previous weeks have been so tough for me. I couldn’t focus on the things that need to be done because I was struggling emotionally at the same time writhing in pain for two days already (actually up until now). The stressful week I guess got the best of me because this month has been the most painful belly cramps ever that I couldn’t even walk plus the super hot weather is causing me too much headache lately – what I hate about summer. *rollingeyes*
I was locked up in my room, almost bedridden, and lived a potato couch life for two days. And grrr, it’s totally depressing. And I got more depressed after watching the life of Adele in Blue is the Warmest Color. It’s the longest and saddest story I have ever watched in my entire life.
I have fallen asleep last night reading lots of autobiographies through Wikipedia and stalking fashion bloggers on Chictopia which made me feel a little better when I woke up this morning. Although the cramps hasn’t gone yet, I have decided to stand up and asked my sister to go out for lunch. And yep, I’m gonna share with you my look and what I wore this lunch. Excited? Haha.
I just love this thrifted floral jumpsuit. It’s too comfy, stylish and can go with whatever shoes I wear. Isn’t it so perfect for summer? I’m also currently obsessing over colored locks. And actually so inlove with my red hair. Obvious cos I got loads of photos on this post! Sorry!
Today is sort of a NEW me day. It’s because I went for a casual, light and girly work wear today. My office buddies were all surprised when they saw me on my average-height heels during lunch time. I felt like I was such a biggie when I was walking with them on our way to the cafeteria where we usually take our lunch. And it’s odd! Haha. I got used to being always the smallest in the group and today’s a different thing. Love it!
I bought this pair of wedge sandals a few months back but I just had enough courage to wear it this morning. I wasn’t really planning to wear it but I couldn’t find any flat white shoes or perhaps the ones with light colors that would match these stripe pants. And these sandals didn’t fail me, it looked good! Do you agree?
**No whole body shot for this post because – my hair isn’t in the mood to pose, it’s too frizzy! Pffft.
Look of the day:
White sleeveless top + Striped jeans + white wedge sandals + off white/tan bag = ALL LIGHT!!
What I love about this look is the cool and comfy feeling it gives me – perfect for this hot, sweaty weather!
What about you lovelies? How do you go for a casual work wear during hot season?
“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.”― Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
If you want to survive the scorching hot sun here in PH, then you should definitely wear something light and cool. It’s this time of the year when I don’t often wear prints. I may wear printed outfit but I make sure it’s short, no sleeves or with cool and thin fabrics. I know floral print is the trend during summer but geez I only wear summery outfit whenever I’m in the beach or it’s off-summer season or unless, it’s the only outfit left in my closet. Isn’t it a bit of embarrassing going out, feeling giddy in your floral dress or maxi skirt then bumping into with people wearing same outfit, too? – Same reason why I don’t usually go with what’s IN.
Well, I wear summery outfit during spring or rainy season – of course, with a jacket or scarf to go along with it. I guess we can wear whatever we please even without following what the season or the trend is. But I also believe that you don’t wear boots on a summer day, right? But guess what? I saw heaps in their knee high boots and yep on a very hot, hot summer day –just a few days ago! What’s worse is that most of the people I saw in their boots often pair it with leggings or super skinny pants. Aren’t they too harsh on themselves?
Anyhows, flaunting with you today what I wore the other day when my siblings and I went out for a short walk and a little prayer at the church nearby. **Forgive my oily skin**

A quick outfit of the day post.
It’s a busy weekend! I can’t write long. Stay here longer next time.
