dreaming of fall

floral midi skirt – thrifted | pink metallic cardigan – borrowed from mom | white tank top – forever21 basic | giraffe-printed wedge booties – shoe etiquette | tan fringe leather bag – urban originals | green studded belt – primal rave | black wide-brimmed hat – cotton on | spiral-esque cuff – primal rave | brass necklace – downtown find | rings: lion and armor rings – downtown finds, laminated wood – props

the one good and bad thing about living in a tropical country is the tropical weather. ironically, we use the tropical weather as an excuse to wear as little clothing as possible all year round but also need to do so otherwise we die of dehydration. our weather can be bipolar and would be sunny in the morning and be rainy in the afternoon. take for example the day these photos were taken. an hour before leaving the house, the sky was grey and seemed to incessantly pour rain. the moment we got out of the house though, the sun came out and it got so humid, it got hard to breathe. two hours later, it started drizzling again.
oh how i wish we can experience fall, at least one month in a year. just a month in a year where the breeze is a little colder despite the sunny atmosphere and the colors of the rest of the world are lovelier and more surreal. unfortunately, we only get to experience sunny – rainy – sunny – rainy – and so on every year. just like how i do with elephants, i’ll just experience fall in my dreams.

    The mix and match of all the elements of your outfit was impeccable here. Lord knows I'm not a fashionista like you (I try, but I always spend my money food tripping or on books), but I can recognize good taste when I see it. And that is definitely what is exhibited here. Do keep gracing the streets of Cebu–and the blogosphere–with your presence! πŸ˜‰
