that wind through the clouds and look down on the crowds.
-“Air Traffic”, Owl City
Green striped drop-waist top. Leggings. Sandals. Wooden beads necklace. Wooden heart necklace. Leather bag.
Okay, that green tunic has got to be one of my favorite summer clothes. It feels cool when I wear it! The leggings, too. Black, they may be, but I can still feel the wind on my legs.
It was really hot this day, but thanks to my outfit and the cozy wind blowing through High Street, I barely felt the sun at all.
Note the water fountain behind me. And note that I put on sunblock since I expected to walk under the sun for about an hour. And, for some reason there was sand in the grass we were walking on… All I needed was the smell of salty seawater, and I could successfully convince myself that I was on the beach. Haha!
The silver sound is all around and the colors fall like snow
– “Rainbow Veins”, Owl City
Knit blouse, unbranded, P250. Slacks from…someone…I can’t remember who. Watch from Tomato. Naturalizer shoes.
You’ve already seen this blouse…but with jeans. LOL. This time, it’s with slacks! I love tops like this. Put it with jeans and it becomes casual. Match it with leather shoes and it becomes smart casual. Replace the jeans with slacks and you have a more business-y attire. Yey!
About the photo
Taken at 5:30 PM. My hair was a mess, I barely had make-up on, and the sun was setting. I was able to remedy the light problem by putting my exposure on high. But see that bit of yellow light on the wall? That’s proof of the sunset right there.
This photo was SO rushed because I was chasing the daylight…plus this was in the parking lot, so I wanted the shoot to be done before somebody came by.
Blue and black striped— wait. V-neck with blue and black— Er… It’s a SHIRT. That’s a V-NECK. That’s BLUE and BLACK. And it has a WHITE inner thingy. There. And black GEXE slacks and my Naturalizer shoes. Oh, and my blue beaded bracelet
It’s unbranded, and it was given to me as a gift from…someone.
Aaaaaaaaanyway. There was a time when I stopped wearing v-necks. I prefer round-necked shirts over them. But this one looks nice on me, I think. You can argue that it actually is a round neck because of the white thingy under it, but I think it’s still a v-neck. Help, fashion experts?
About the Photo
Shot at Metro Market!Market!, with Ana making Na’Vi sounds in the background. My smile went from that to suppressed giggles to an all out laugh. Outtake.

Actually, nothing is new here. The green striped drop-waist top is so old, I can’t even read the tag. (Obviously, I can’t remember what store I got it from, either.) I can’t remember where I got the wooden beads necklace, either. I know that I’ve had the wooden heart necklace since second year high school. I don’t know where I got the wooden bracelet.
Although all of these are old, it’s the first time I wore them all together, I think. And I can’t imagine why I never thought of doing that before! Hm. I must rummage my old clothes to see what new combos I can come up with.
(And, yes, the string at my hip isn’t tied properly. LOL!)

Striped boat neck, P120.
Like I said, I gravitate to stripes recently.
This is one of my purchases in Lolo Oboy’s… or the ukay beside it. I still wish I’d gotten it at a lower price, but 120 isn’t actually bad for the quality of the blouse. You know what this means, right? It means I’m going to go back there sometime soon. Haha!
About the photo
The window beside our lobby couch provides pretty lighting. Wheee~
Title from “Follow Through”, Gavin DeGraw
Knit blouse, unbranded, P250. JackSon jeans, P250. Mother of pearl bracelet, P100(?). All from Circle C.
My top was originally 280, but I asked the sales lady to bring it down to 250. She said yes almost immediately. DARN IT. I should have asked for 200, instead! Ah, I have much to learn about haggling.
I realize now that I’m growing increasingly fond of stripes. I also realize that Circle C is now my favorite shopping place. I must blog about it soon.
About the Photo
I don’t know why I still held on to the empty plate. Useless details galore in this photo, but whatever. LOL. This was right before lunch at a friend’s house, and my officemates kept passing by. Which is a good thing, because they made me laugh.
