[Lookbook 06.09-11.2012] Color me beach

The rain is pouring hard as I write this and I'm in a bit of reminiscing mode here. Last week, our spur-of-the-moment decision to hit the beach in Boracay couldn't be any better. I guess I've been a very good boy that God blessed us with fine, sunny weather throughout our stay even if weather forecasters predicted some rain. Call it perfect timing but my outfits seemed to reflect the sunny vibe with lots of color.

Day 1
I brought Enchanted Kingdom to Boracay with my purple and bright yellow ensemble. But common, purple goes so well with yellow!

I love how the shorts fit -- tapered and sufficiently short. Because we were flying to Kalibo instead of Caticlan, which meant an additional two-hour ride, I just slipped on some Sanuks for comfort.

I wouldn't be swimming in that outfit so I changed into my favorite pair of swim shorts once I was ready to hit the beach. Just don't mind all the flab and the scars, will you?

Day 2
On our second day, Manny Pacquiao lost his first fight since 2005. Oh well. After lazing around the sun, we paid a visit to our friends at the Red Pirates Pub. We didn't go sailing, though. As for my outfit, this is the least colorful: just blues and grays. The sarong I was just wrapping around myself unconsciously.

Day 3
Time to say goodbye. The loud stripes here are offset by the rather subdued blue of the shorts. I ditched the Sanuks in favor of flip-flops, which I got on the island.

  1. I had those sunglasses but lost them! I used them in a couple of looks. I love all the photos very summer and tropical. Great job!

  2. Hahaha I love how you still manage to look good even during your vacation days. When I'm at the beach I don't think I have half the mind to think about how I look but looking at how well you dress makes me feel a bit self conscious haha. I shall strive harder to maintain my style even during vacation!

    Looks like it didn't rain once throughout your stay. I'm a little bit jealous. Manila weather is horrid. Suddenly it's raining and then the next minute it's so hot you could probably fry an egg on the street. Thanks for posting!

    1. oh common! to each his own. in the past, i also didn't give a rat's ass about how i looked while i was on vacation. i still don't sometimes :)

      as for the weather, i was lucky to enjoy uninterrupted sunshine considering it's supposed to be the rainy season already.

      thanks for dropping by, ada!
