127th: Printed wide leg trousers

Hi guys! School started last Tuesday so I was pretty much occupied with my school stuff. I had to read at least 4 chapters a day… so yeah, I was pretty busy. I try not to put things at the very last minute like I used to for the last 2 years, but I don’t know until when this would last. lol Due to my responsibilities as a student, and an important person of the family and the society (lol) I had no time to take pictures and to blog. So I apologize if I haven’ replied to any of your comments here on my blog. I have 80+ pending comments that I have to.. have to read soon! Again, I sincerely apologize my friends.

Now to my outfit…

Yes! I am wearing a wide-leg trouser but with print! lol I know I have worn too much wide-leg trousers here in my blog, but I can’t get enough of how they make me look so tall and skinny! lol I also love the print added to this pair of trousers so it’s more special, thus I love it more! lol

black panel corset: H&M (from $49 to $7); wide-leg trousers: Zara (from $79 to $19): necklace: Urban Outfitters (from $43 to $5)

I bought this pair of trousers last December when Zara had their boxing sale and I haven’t worn it even once. Since it was sunny this morning, I’ve decided to wear it finally!

I love the whole look. I love how it looks classy yet gives a youthful edgy look especially with the necklace added.

Side track! Many of you are wondering how I’m feeling now after I got my braces! hahaha. Well, it’s been over a week now so it’s not sore now. I FEEL WAAAY BETTER NOW especially that I CAN EAT AGAIN! lol I mean, I ate after 3 days of having braces but I ate soft foods. Now I can eat pretty much everything again. lol

and my braces don’t bother me that much anymore. I’m getting used to it.. slowly. πŸ™‚

Well, that’s it guys!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Make sure to have some fun since I know school and work kinda sucks sometime! lol I will talk to you again on my next post! I LOVE YOU ALL!

121st: Elbow Falls

My church friends and I went for a “hike” today at Elbow Falls. Well, we were supposed to hike but ended up just taking pictures then went home after that. lol First, I should stop calling them church friends since they’re not just “friends”. You know the saying some friends become a chosen family while some family… yeah. You know what’s next! It’s sad but you have to move on and just enjoy life. Friends who become your family are there for you, and you try to be there for them no matter what happens to them – good or bad.

Now, I’m not really the “best” friend a person can have. Seriously, I’m very bad at setting time to meet up with friends – having a dinner or whatsoever. I think it’s because I have a little one right now. Maybe when he grows bigger then I can really have some bonding time with my other friends. But you know what pisses me off?!?! Friends who want to be friends just because you go to the same school, or same group, or whatever. Then when they find other friends, then they ditch those old friends. I am not perfect and I used to do that as a teenager! lol I want to apologize to those people I’ve hurt because of that. lol But when you reach your 20’s… I think you should know better! Right?! Well, life is not always perfect and as what I’ve said, you really have to move on!

Now to my outfit!

Isn’t the place beautiful!?!?!? I have to thank my brother Lyre for taking all the photos for me! It’s been a while since he took my photos so I’ve really missed him! lol

I usually blur the background of my photos but for these photos. I want to show you how lovely the place is! I’ve been here so many times when I was still single, but this is the first since I had my baby.

As usual, people look at me like “why is she wearing a dress”?!?! I brought another outfit though for the hike.

I bought this H&M dress for $15. People think sometimes that a particular dress is a no no for them because of the style or color.. but I like getting those “no no” dresses! First, I don’t like walking in the mall then see a girl wearing the same dress as me. lol Second and the most important, I love cheap but turned-out-to-be-very-cute dress!

As you’ve seen on my other blog posts, I usually make my hair messy but for these photos I just wanted that boho look. Just flat and wavy hair.

One more thing I like about this dress? I love how it makes me “look” like I’ve lost weight! lol

Presenting the beautiful place and a beautiful face!! CHOS!! (pakapalan lang)

Well, that’s it guys! I know I haven’t blogged for a while but I guess this is worth the wait, right?! πŸ™‚

Tata! ❀

120th: Colorful sequin dress

I bought this sequin colorful dress months ago and I haven’t worn it since. I bought it from H&M for only $19 even though the colors and the sequins are quite clashing. At first I thought that it was impossible to pull off this dress since, as what I said, I thought I would look like a human disco ball! lol But hey, you know me..I like taking risks when it comes with my outfits.

H&M dress ($19); shoes: JC dupe; bag: H&M ($7)

This dress makes my tanned skin glow! lol I am so tan right now. You can’t see it since I have to edit most of my photos coz sometimes they turn out dark.

I wanted to achieve a party look for this so I rolled the sleeves to make it kinda casual, then also add my JC dupes instead of high heels.

Since I figured out that my tan looks good with the outfit, I went for a nude lipstick (which is uncommon for me to do these days. I’m a pink lipstick lover).

So that’s it! What do you guys think?

Oh my! Summer’s almost over and school’s starting pretty soon! I’m still enjoying this vacation! 😦

Thank you all for reading! πŸ™‚

119th: Blue palette

Hello guys. How’s your weekend been going? I hope you’re having fun as much as I do. Well, I’m not really doing anything special but I guess just being in touch with your love ones is the best feeling a person can get. (CHAR!!!)

You know what’s annoying?! When you keep telling yourself that you’re not going to do something but still ends up doing it! Like… eating unhealthy foods! lol I have eaten healthy foods for the past week – just veggies and few chicken but today.. I ate too much sushi! Sushi’s healthy you might say, the thing though is it was deep fried and I ate a whole bunch! 😦 I feel so guilty now! Oh well.

So my outfit of the day pictorial location was in a playground. I had to bring the little kid to a playground so I took advantage of the situation and took pictures first. lol

Since we were going to the playground but I had to blog, I wore something casual and something that is very easy to move around.

I actually reached out at my skirt first, then was thinking of something that could go with it. Since I love the texture of the skirt, I also looked for a top that has different texture that can go with the bottom. So this is what I came up with. The high-waisted skirt with oversized garterized waist gave a “division” but gave a sexy appearance at the same time since mixing two different textures but with same color group is a risk.

skirt: Zara ($49); top: UO ($49); necklace: Aldo ($20); shoes: JC ($160)

Well, that’s it guys. I want to tell you more story but I have to go since our church youth group has to practice our group song for an event.

I’ll talk to you tomorrow! πŸ˜‰ Thank you all for reading!

118th: Under the bridge

It’s Friday! Yay! I was supposed to go to a party with a friend, but I decided to just stay home and look after the little one since the husband is playing basketball. I am so amazed how my little boy has grown so fast, how his intellectual capabilities developed so much compared to the previous months. He can now say “I’m too hungry”, “I’m mad”, “not me”, and… some bad stuff. hahaha.

I love taking pictures somewhere green since he also likes running around the parks, playing with water, etc. so blogging is also a family time for us. I just don’t know if that’s how my husband feels. I really feel he doesn’t like taking photos for me. I really need to get that remote and a tripod! I know one day he’ll just give up and I see it coming! lol

If you have followed my blog since the beginning then you must have seen this background already. I have took pictures here before but it wasn’t summer yet. If I can remember it right, I was freezing when I was taking those photos especially I was wearing shorts! lol

But now, even though I’m wearing a sheer top – Oh Em, it’s still too hot! I like it better this way though! Anyways, I lvoe this sheer top I got from Forever21 about 3 years ago. It was actually a leopard print (painted on) but I can’t see them now. I guess it faded. lol

I used my JC Lita in color block since I haven’t used this as much as I want to. I honestly don’t think it was the best choice for my outfit, but hey… anything that stands out is good! lol

I have also re-used my high-waisted shorts since it’s one of my favorite shorts out there! I have blogged this before but I don’t think I gave justice to how cute it is!

Sorry. I’m posting this coz I like looking at how toned my thighs are. lol Oh, and how skinny I look in here! lol Well, I am not skinny but I’m not really complaining. I actually just want to get toned! How I wish I have the motivation.Β 

I almost fell! lol Actually, I did! 😦

Oh. One thing to share. I know you will not notice it right away, but maybe in the following months… lol. But I have changed my skin (face) regimen. So I’m expecting good results since it’s very pricey. I will blog about it maybe if I see good results! πŸ™‚

Thank you guys for reading! Have a nice weekend!

Please still continue to PRAY FOR THE PHILIPPINES! You know, the post-calamity or “trauma” is the worst. The rain stopped already and the sun is up maybe, but I know that most of them don’t know where or how to start. So please still continue including them in your prayers. I will!

115th: Sulphur Mountain

Since my cousins from Texas are here to visit, we decided to bring them to Banff. The funny thing is she knows the place more than we Albertans do! HAHA. She knows where to go, where the best places to go camping, or places which have the best sceneries. My husband didn’t come with us due to his work, but my cousin was really nice and took my photos. I was a little shy at first but after seeing all the photos she took – I was amazed. She got skills! Oh we’re so related! lol

Since it was 2000 feet high, it was really chilly up there and people were looking at me since I was wearing a dress! HAHA! It was windy and quite cold and I wasn’t wearing shorts under my dress! My bad! I also brought my leather jacket since I know it will be cold. I’m used to exposing my legs to winter days so it wasn’t really a problem for me. I just didn’t like the wind! lol

I was wearing my one shoulder lace dress, leather jacket, and brown shoes all from Zara.

I love this last shot. I have lots of photos taken by my ate (elder sister), but I’m running out of space for my blog.

Again, I want to thank you Ate Gingging for taking all these photos! I hope you stay here longer so you can take more photos of me! Hahaha! She’s so sweet and kind! She’s actually my cousin-in-law, but I don’t like having “in-law” when I feel that we’re related by heart! I’m such a drama queen! hahaha.

The following photos were taken by yours truly and my crappy camera (which is obvious from the resolution of the photos).

That’s the small town of Banff! I forgot to mention that we went to Sulphur Mountain!

This trip made me realize that I need to explore our province more since we do have lots of beautiful places!

Thank you very much for reading! ❀

113th: Another Zara sale dress

Hello! I know I know… some of you may be wondering what happened to me since I haven’t blogged for a week. Well, I’ve been feeling unwell for the past few days but that’s not the reason why I haven’t blogged. lol Actually, there are two reasons. First, Calgary’s weather was not.. is not cooperating with me taking photos outdoors. In Philippines we call it, “sala sa lamig sala sa init”, which basically means… it’s not cooperating! WHY IS IT SO HARD TO TRANSLATE?! hahaha.

I still think that today is not the day for taking photos, but I feel that I owe it to you guys. HAHA. Right? You know, when I first started this blog of mine… my goal was not just to post photos of my daily outfits but also I want people to know me better. It’s hard to tell a whole story in a Facebook status or a tweet. I have to write it. My husband complains that I make my blog too personal sometimes, but that was the whole purpose of this blog! I don’t want me to be just another blogger out there. I want to be a “friendly” blogger! CHAR!!!!! So yeah, sorry if the following photos are not that good. I kinda don’t like how it turned out especially that I love this dress sooo much!

I know I know it’s another skater dress… but I have to say that this one is my favorite. Not because it’s the most expensive skater dress I have (you know that this is on sale of course), but because I JUST LOVE the sleeves so much! Here. I’ll show you a photo even though it’s blurry.

For people who have big arms like I do, wearing a sleeveless or those tinie-tiny sleeves are sometimes challenging that is why I was so happy when I saw how it did not accentuate the horrifying sagginess of my arms. lol

Zara dress: $39 from $99

I added a silver collar necklace since other than the “lace” and the sleeves, yes, the dress is too simple. SO I added a silver necklace, some colorful shoes, and since I thought I should aim for a vintage effect I also put on red lipstick and just a messy hair bun.

I know I know that I need to stop posting dress outfits since that’s what I have really been posting for the past month, but I LOVE DRESSES as much as I LOVE SHOES! Fall and winter is fast approaching so just let me enjoy this since I will be stuck wearing pants and sweaters once the sunny months are over. 😦

So what do you think about this outfit? I thought it was a verrryyy good deal to begin with! I love love the dress! I just with that Zara has an online store! Seriously people!! What store doesn’t offer online shopping?!?!?! gah! People do not have time to go to the mall, you know!?

Anyways… I’ll talk to you soon peeps! ❀

112th: Nature & frill

This is going to be a very quick post since my friends and I are playing charades. It’s quite cold outside so we’re trying to play some indoor games.

I bought the dress that I’m wearing from Zara. It was originally priced at $59 but now it’s $29. When I bought it, I thought that it looked so good on me. lol Sad to say, I think I’ve gained few pounds since the time I bought it. Well, that’s alright! I still like it!

You know how I love taking photos outdoors.. somewhere green or blue… I tell you though, it’s not that easy. I have to climb high places, or I have to kill Β mosquitoes just to have pictures with nature! I’m not complaining though. I think it’s all worth it in the end. At least, that’s what I think. πŸ˜€

What I Β really like about the dress is the frill at the waist and also the texture of the dress.

I got this photo from Zara’s website. I just want to show you guys what it looks up close.

Don’t mind how big my tummy looks in this photo. It’s the lining of the dress! I SWEAR! 😦 I love the dress, but the downside is it makes me look kinda fat. I should’ve pulled it down so it doesn’t makes folds.

I know I’ve been posting same photos with the same poses and locations… but whatever. I love all these frames. HAHA

Sorry for the short post… We’re watching a Filipino horror movie right now – Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang. I’ll talk to you guys later.

108th: Full mini skirt

This is a very short post since it’s already 1am. I just can’t sleep and what’s the best way to kill time? BLOG!

While I was looking at my closest, I realized that I haven’t blogged my full skirt that I got 2 years ago. This is one of my favorite skirts since it gives me a long-legged look when I take photos. For short people like me, if you want to look taller, then go with either very long (like maxi dresses or jumpsuits) or very short (knicker shorts).

Ohhh. Wait, have you noticed my “bubu” on my left leg? I know it’s been there for months now and the color never fades. I don’t think I’m diabetic because it actually healed, I just don’t know why it’s not fading. Who knows why? Oh please don’t tell me I have leukemia.

Now to my outfit…

I’m using again the necklace I used on my previous post. I forgot to mention that I got it from Zara! It was on sale so I had to get it right away! lol

top: romper UO; skirt: H$M ($29); shoes: Gold Dot

While I was doing this look, I knew that skinny leather belts are kinda out of season. I was searching online for the in-season metal plate belts but I was unlucky. If someone knows where I can buy a cheap but very good quality one, please tell me.

Well, that’s it! Thank you for reading! πŸ™‚

107th: White jumpsuit

If you feel that black is just too common already for an outfit, and you can’t take the “clown-like” look that color blocking can bring, then I suggest you just go with a very simple but neat and chic color – white! White makes you look fresh and clean especially with a 35 degree celsius weather like Calgary had today! The worse part is I wasn’t even sweating because Calgary’s sunny days are too dry!

Other than maxi dresses and skirts, one of my favs is jumpsuits! They’re very easy to dress up plus they make me look taller than my usual height! lol So white jumpsuit for me is a must have!

As you may have noticed, I’m extra tan now! lol

When I took the pictures, it was super windy that my eyes became watery so sorry if my eyes look “sleepy” on the next photos.

If you want to look tall, then don’t put any belt. For me though, I wanted to add some “texture” to my outfit so I added a rope. Yes, a rope!

If you want to add more texture, then just do fold your pants and roll it in to add some volume.

You can also add a white blazer.

Then you can just add some color… as what I did with my shoes and accessory.

jumpsuit: Zara (from $69 to $59); blazer: Forever21 ($45); shoes: Aldo

I got my jumpsuit from the recent Zara sale! I just knew I had to grab it right away! lol

Well, that’s it! Hope you guys are enjoying your day! πŸ™‚
