One Way

Don't you sometimes think that 24 hours a day is just not enough? There are moments when I wish I got more, given all the things I need to do and still want to do in my life on a daily basis. But I'm still thankful though, cause at the end of the day, even I, didn't know how on Earth I am able to carry on with all the responsibilities. Then I realized, I did it because of God's grace and His given strength. The things is, whenever we are in need of help, we just have to remember that there is someone of greater power Who's always ready to help us. You just have to ask.

  
Onto my outfit: Wore this last Friday to the mountain. Yes, you read that right! The mountain where the modern house of prayer of our church is located.  Went there for 2013 activity planning and all. Since we are just going to lounge there the whole time, I made sure to wear  the most comfortable clothes. The best feeling was waking up the next day, feeling the fresh air and overlooking the great view of the Metro.

Monochrome

Have you noticed that days have been passing by so fast? Who kinda hates Monday? Raise your hand! ---> ME!!! haha, Obviously everybody knows why, I just think it simply ruins the joy of the weekend. But don't get me wrong, I dont hate it as it is, talking about "corporate employment dilemmas" here.


Anyway, wore this very casual outfit to Neil's brother, Nelson's birthday house celebration. Well, I actually also wore this to work earlier that Saturday and I was never been so comfortable. If i could, i would always prefer to wear something like this than the girly and feminine types, but you know sometimes your instinct just calls for it. :)

Hello BER Months!!!
Wow, time flies really fast! Can't believe that its going to be just 109 days before Christmas!
These photos have been in my archive since last month and i don't know what on Earth happened why i haven't blogged about this earlier, guess I was just really busy with other more important things. 
Anyway, on to my outfit: Wore this to a "casual mini photo-shoot" I and Neil did for my online shop HappyBoon. Channeling Print-on-Print was really fun! Have you ever thought of pairing polka-dots with floral ever? Well in the "fashion world" its not new now, this trend has been both on the streets and the runways ever since i can remember and If you learn how to do it right (make sure not have a fashion faux pas) you are going to enjoy it every time, I swear! If you are doing it for the first time, do not be afraid because there are some "rules" how to do it properly. OK, let me just share some basic "rules" then you may experiment from there. :)

Based from the picture below, I'm wearing a floral printed top over a polka-dot pleated skirt. Even they belong from a different group of patterns, they looked good together because (Key) they have similar colors in them (but not necessarily all the same). 


So if you want to try this out I suggest, start pairing different prints but with the same colors, colors close to each other or of the same family (ie. Blue-Blue Green-Green or Red-Yellow-Orange) You may go for monochromatic in here also. If you are not comfortable wearing bold or bright colors, try mixing prints in neutral colors (ie. black and white on black and white or Beige-Taupe-Mocha) By doing so, the whole look won't look trashy or cluttered but very put-together. 

Look at some examples below.
Enjoy!!! :)
