embracing florals

No use fighting it. Colorful floral prints are in.

Most shop windows are blooming with florals weather it be large brightly colored prints, embroidery or patches. But flower prints are not that easy to wear, there is a huge possibility that the nice dress would  look “granny-ish” once worn. That being said, I do not have florals in my closet. I do have floral inspired earrings though. 

When you tell me floral, this is all I have. (unless you count chinoiserie toile as floral then, I have two florals) I tend to go safe when it comes to following the trend. -unless I really really dig the current trend.

But when I saw this picture. I know I need to get one. Hello to huge bright floral prints!

I got this bold floral on gingham print dress because Pia Wurtzbach is looking good wearing it! Shallow reason, but to be fair I recently watched her life story so maybe that was it? I am going to wear mine with Fitflops!-Photo of Pia from the internet.

Quickly ordered one online and discovered that I lack the height. So, I will be taking the dress to the alteration shop to get it shortened to (my) knee length.

Because I have started with one floral dress, its going to have more for company. I got another floral dress, shorter this time and in a more tropical vibe.

Taming the florals with a denim jacket and keeping it all together with wedges.

I have also been contemplating on getting more floral pieces. Might as well join in the fray.

*I get to watch the first episode of Game of Thrones season 7 later! yey! -Will be posting about the new additions to my Funko Pop collection soon.

summer stuff

After the holy week, I have been staying at home to Netflix and chill. *I just finished 13 reasons why* Still waiting for the next episode of Riverdale though.

I have also been happily hoarding yet another batch of lippies. Colorpop has a sale going on and I just couldn’t resist! Eagerly asked my cousin from the US to get me some so that I can see what the liquid lipstick hype is all about. I got those ultra satin ones: Aquarius, Echo park, Chandelier, Alyssa, and Dopey.

yey for new lippies!

Also did some closet purging. I let go of my clothes that became too small for me, and found replacements for my favorites. –I am still on a lookout for a lace top, and a chambray one.  I also got new tops since its summer and I am constantly wearing shorts. Pinstripe seems to be the thing this summer, this blue one from Kamiseta fits comfortably and on trend too!

I also got this cute red one with prints on the sides from Plains and Prints.

At home we have been trying to eat healthier. Swapping ice cream for yogurt, having salad for dinner at least once or twice a week.

Sice it is “sweat season” it is always better to have more sheets (for the rotation). We got this exact set, at a discounted price too!
