A Whole New World

Sorry for being away for a while. My family and I recently got accepted to migrate to Canada and last Friday, we finally moved here. The first thing I thought of was all the fall outfits I could wear! The last few months before our move I was so busy shopping for sweaters because in the Philippines the weather is always hot, but when I got here, boy was I surprised. The jackets I bought were not enough to stand the cold Canada weather! And I thought I was very well prepared to face the cold! Here are my first few outfits including my airport outfit:

Hello June!! Boy, does time fly so fast! We’re already half-way through the year. This realization motivated  me to strive harder to make my 2014 more productive. We still have 6 months in front of us, let us grab every opportunity to achieve our dreams. The message for today’s Sunday Service reminded me that as long as I maintain a good companionship with God, He will be there with me every step of the way. There may be storms and trials in life, but I know that He will be holding my hand. Together, let us stand up and start the other half of the year with enthusiasm and hope knowing we are going to where God wants us to be.

I have worn this dress in a previous post (click here), but I have been bothered about how short it is already. However, I did not want to give it away because Mustard is so in right now ! Believe me, check Pinterest. haha. So I “modestified” my dress my adding a full circle skirt, a polka dot one. I bought the skirt this morning at MAGS, where I bought this other modest skirt (they still have that skirt at their Ayala Centrio branch). They have a bunch of midi skirts that you would instantly fall in love with. I think this boutique is now my new favorite! I was contemplating on whether I should buy the red polka dot skirt or this black one. But I chose the black one as a polka dot skirt is a closet staple. Pretty soon, I’m gonna buy the red one for a more vintage/Minnie Mouse vibe! And oh, MAGS is on a 10% off Back to School SALE on ALL items until June 15 that is why I’m grabbing every opportunity while the SALE sign is still on, some items are even on 50% off sale.

Enough talking, here is today’s OOTD:

Ornate

I recently bought plain shirts from Bench for my everyday errands and day outs. So for today’s date with my friends, I decided to pair this shirt with a flowy maxi skirt to give a girly feel to my outfit. And because Style Me May’s challenge for Today is entitled “Your Best Foot Forward”, I bought sandals that were on sale to add to my whole ensemble. This outfit has a chic yet comfortable vibe that I would definitely wear every single day.

Check out the details on this ornate skirt! Cruella and Co has many unique designs for maxi skirts , you have got to check their Instagram out. They even supplied skirts for Kathryn Bernardo for her Got To Believe TV series.  Some of their skirts are made out of jersey fabric, and some are made out of chiffon so you can choose any according to your preference.

Since I do not own a pair of sandals, I decided to buy one for this outfit, but I did not want to spend more than 500 pesos or 11 dollars. It was a good thing that Robinson’s had a shoes and bags sale this month so I bought these super cool sandals at 25% off for only 485 pesos!

Mothers are the biggest blessing we could ever have. They give all their time and effort to raise their children well, take care of household matters, and be a loving wife. They often go on sleepless nights especially when we were young. Mothers are given to us by God to be our guide and our stronghold. It is but fitting for us to repay the goodness our moms did, not just on Mother’s Day, but every single day.

I could practically tell my mom anything, she is my bestfriend and ally in this world. She is always there to listen to me and is the only one who can understand me ,I can never ask for more, my mom has done a lot for my family. If there was one verse to describe my mother, it would be from Proverbs 31 : 28

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed.

Mom thank you for being my bestfriend and for raising us with the Bible by your side. Thank you for all the love you have shown and you know that I love you very much. And thank you for telling me I look great in my outfit today ;)

So here’s my OOTD based on the Style Me May challenge: Vintage Vixen.

When I first saw this skirt on the display window,I knee I had to have it for today. So after a few days of saving,I finally got it. I love how fluffy it is and how the floral design brings a vintage vibe to the skirt. Sometimes, splurging on a great item could be very worth it.

I was looking for a top that would fit the theme, and I remembered I had this peter-pan collar blouse that I got for 10% off at a sale. Though it was still pricey despite the discount, it’s quality and re-usability made me realize that it is a great find.

To finish this look I put on a pearl necklace and bracelet set, grabbed this satchel, and put on my heels.

Great Sunday and Mothers’ Day outfit I should say. This is by far my favorite outfit yet

May 2: Mint To Be

We’re now on the second day of the May photo challenge: Mint to Be! You probably have heard of the mint craze as probably everyone has a mint colored item on their wardrobe. This color isn’t simply called green, it deserved a name on its own, just like the color coral. Some green colored pieces may be too striking to wear or may look too Christmas-y but this shade is so pleasing to the eye you can wear it anytime and anywhere!

So I used my 200 peso ($4) midi skirt that was made by my seamstress and paired it with a black shirt and a mint statement necklace (it’s gorgeous I’m in love).

Scroll down for the outfit post! God bless you!
