It's been quite a week! Had a special project for work, which I might do a ninja shots post on if the pictures are good enough for that. Before I show you my work and play outfits, though, let me share a little something that also happened this week. Early on my work took me to the far reaches of Makati for a workshop, where I decided to take advantage of the opportunity presented to me:
Well ok, not that big a goodbye. Though I recently dyed it I was stubborn enough to keep my split ends (that and the dye process was taking waaay too much time and money), so I asked for a trim to keep my mane healthy but still longish. They had a little too much fun with it in the end, but it turned out nicely.
|Hello, waves! And nicely shaped eyebrows. Cannot get over.|
This night made me want to invest in a permanent blowdry ala Mira of Clinique. Having wavy hair is an unusual experience for my stick-straight, refuses-to-mess-up hair.
|The workshop included a makeup part, |
which is essentially my everyday look + eyeshadows and blush.
And for my work outfit:
|Gray and white striped blouse: Debenhams Petite|
Royal blue skirt w/zipper detailing: Trunk Show
Taupe pompom wedges: Ferretti
I chanced upon both the blouse and skirt on sale--a girl's got to keep an eye out for good deals! The skirt sits a wee bit too low on the waist, though, so I think I have to pair it with a more well-fitting top the next time to keep a sleeker silhouette.
For the play part, I'm actually typing this from Tagaytay! Nice way to end the week. The cool breeze is pretty awesome, and set the stage for a wonderful exercise in layering. The play outfit is what I wore yesterday, where we did nothing but eat and lounge around. My tummy is full of salad, lamb, chicken shawarma, and Bo's hot chocolate. Mmm.
|Purple spaghetti strap top (inner): Forever 21|
Sleeveless fuchsia top: ForMe
Navy cardigan w/bird embroidery: Promod
MOTO Martha jeans: Topshop Petite
T-strap wedges: Aerosoles
Wearing the inner was a good idea: not only did it prevent a wardrobe malfunction courtesy of my overstretched ForMe top whose neckline I still adore, but it also gave additional insulation when it was too hot out to wear the cardigan, but still cold for Tagaytay standards.
|I asked my siblings if I could put their faces here, and this was the best picture I could find.|
We don't all look alike. :p
What did you do and wear this long weekend?
