I’ve had this dress for quite a while, it’s a gift from one of my friends for my debut ages ago and I never had the chance to wear it then, until now (or at least 2 months ago haha I have a looooot of backlogs). I’ve heard and read a lot of times before the saying that goes something like this: If an item is in your closet for a long period of time, chances are you’re never gonna use it—not exactly the same words, but you get the point. I’ve always disagreed with that thought, I honestly believe at one point, you’d get to find the proper season/ occasion to wear out whatever it is that’s stuck in your closet, who’s to say it won’t be in season in several months? Or that you’d never find the shoes or accessories that goes along with it? Every piece of clothing is worth stashing. ♥

I miss the beach, and getaways, and relaxation. I know summer has officially ended and that most people are back to reality and that had I still been a student, I would’ve grunted like many others I know whose first day starts tomorrow, but since I’m not (and still part of the unemployed), I can still stay up till mornight and wake up at noon, and can still head to the beach (except nobody can accompany me anymore unless I head alone lol) but there’s just something about the term ‘summer’. It doesn’t matter if we live in a tropical country and its summer weather scorching hot ¾ of the year, the only time most people take a break and make an effort to head to the nearest pool/beaches is on summer, yeah? Sometimes I wish it was summer all year round, and then I realize that it is, we just don’t call it that. ♥
Take Me Away
My choice of travel/ flying clothes: laid back, but I still took into consideration the place we’re heading to (which was Boracay) so I opted for a comfy summery outfit.
I’ve always dreamt of going places ever since forever, and while I’ve never been outside the country yet, I’ve already gone and explored several tourist destinations in The Philippines. Another trip has been booked for the near future and some more are still in the process of planning, all still domestic, but hey, travel is travel and I would never pass up an opportunity to fly and see our country more. I’m very excited about them, I’m crossing my fingers that the plans pushes through. How about that—I’m a couple of steps back from being a tourist in my own country! ♥
The Graduation Dress
I think the main reason why I was so afraid of leaving school for good was because I wasn’t emotionally/ mentally prepared for it. I get so attached to people and things that I find it hard to move on. When I graduated High School, it took me quite a while to move on and finally accept college. And now, here I m again, leaving. It’s difficult and different and new all over again. I’m not very good with changes, I always try to stick to what’s familiar, but right now, it just isn’t an option.
(Flower Crown: Kaymar Alekzis Shop; Dress: Cute Tees, Dress & Peace; Belt: Genevieve Gozum; Shoes: Primadonna) I’ve thought about it a handful of times, and each time, it saddened me, but signs from up above kept on coming. I came across a line in Paper Towns that said “It’s so hard to leave, until you leave” and a notification from God Wants You To Know on Facebook (which happens to say the right advice I need Every. Single. Time) that went something like “There is nothing “out there” that’s holding you down, - you are limiting yourself only with your own imagination. And your greatest limits are not even the “cannot” and the “should not”, but the places where your imagination hasn’t yet gone at all. There has never been a better time for you to open your eyes, let the imagination soar and see what more is possible.” And suddenly, I was okay. Suddenly I viewed the Graduation not as an end but a start. Suddenly I was excited. Things will be good, and then better and then best. ♥
