[Lookbook 05.01.2014] Away from #LaBoracay
So last week there was this marketing contraption of an event called #laboracay2014 where of course everyone was expected on the tiny island of Boracay. The mere thought of beach and party-goers coming in in hordes is enough to drive me away. I've long graduated from that stuff and I can no longer stand such a crowd. Signs of ageing, if you may.
But it's summer, and with all my musings about the beach, swim shorts and all that, I still haven't had a trip of my own. Yeah, loser. And then in a last-minute decision it just happened, thanks to My Bibe, and off we found ourselves hundreds of miles away to yet another busy beach...
...in Patong on the island-province of Phuket! It's our second time on the island but our first staying in this area. I got to wear one of my blue-and-white swim shorts, which I paired with a shocking neon yellow V-neck. Perfect!
But then, yeah, it's not all about frolicking and sauntering on the beach; I had to get in the water, which means removing the highlighter.
And while #laboracay was all about abs, it was all about flabs in my case. And my protruding right upper tummy from my surgery.
