stepping into the light

no i’m not sad in these photos. i’m sleepy and very full from our big breakfast this morning. harry and i like to just sleep-in on weekends and this is one of them. just a post-birthday celebration and also to celebrate our 29th month together as a couple. this pale green dress is one of my favorites. it has seen me through chubby and fat days because of the elastic waist. i am happy to report that i had to cinch the belt so much that i had to fold it at the sides. the dressed used to be a bohemian maxi dress but i had my dad cut it short — just like he did on all my other dresses. i loved it as a maxi dress but felt that it cut me shorter because of its full skirt.Β 
so here’s my weekend: brownie cheesecake and hours of talking with karen, browsing through books i can’t afford at fully booked especially now that i’m saving for my unemployed days, dvd shopping — grey’s anatomy season 6, the runaways and she’s out of my league; slept in the clothes i wore out and make-up when i got home — which made me feel like crap because i don’t like feeling dirty in the middle of my sleep; lots of channel surfing with harry on sunday afternoon, a night with a polka-dotted ribbon, a donut twist and almond snickers bar at 4 in the morning and lots and lots of sleep.

  4. Hey! thanks for commenting on my blog. Nice outfit and beautiful photos! πŸ™‚ oooh~ donut twist and almond snickers! πŸ˜›


  5. This dress is such a beautiful color. I love the neckline. The length looks great, I love maxi dresses but i can understand they can feel like they are taking over sometimes.

    -My surgery is for reconstructing my ACL as well. If you have any other fashion tips i would love to hear them.

    Take Care


  6. That sounds like an awesome weekend… Anything with lots of sleep. πŸ™‚ I am guessing the Bohemian look is still big in the Philippines? My sister-in-law is very much into that look nowadays.
