[Lookbook 09.14-16.2013] Short weekend
My Bibe and I took to the beach over the weekend just to unwind for my birthday. We went to Laiya in San Juan, Batangas, to the exact same spot we've been to almost seven years ago, only now it's a different resort. It was overcast for the most part although there were few brief moments of sun. At least it didn't really rain.
Being at the beach, I was clad in shorts the whole time, mostly brightly-colored ones. On the three-hour drive going there (that stretched to four because of a pit stop), I wore an electric blue number that I paired with a printed gray tee to balance out the loudness.
From bright blue I also took to hot pink. They're an old and cheap department store find. I'm just very happy with the length (or lack thereof). It means more areas for the sun to kiss.
This old Aztec-print tank top sure goes well with the bright pink shorts. For some reason this ensemble makes me look thinner than I actually am. Just don't ask me to take the top off; there's no more hiding all that flab.
On the drive back home the shorts I wore were no longer the usual bright ones I donned earlier. They're camo print actually, although in a digital pixelated style.
And because I couldn't figure out what would go well with them, I defaulted on black. It's safe, yes, but you can't go wrong with that. Then it's comfy Sanuks for footwear.
Now it's back to our daily grind, back to the familiar traffic and chaos of city life. And belated happy birthday to me :)
