Hello, birthday month! Salutations!
Around the end of the third week of May, me and my family were given the opportunity to travel once more to a favorite country. And I took this opportunity to wear and do there my usual monthly thang-post. I kinda took in consideration the would-be weather and temperature over at Osaka and thought wonderfully how it won’t be as troubling wearing layered clothing than it would be in hot-hot Manila.
Without further ado, I present to you a Beige-Weekend outfitting!
- Beige Chiffon Shirt-Dress: thrift
- Brown Thigh High Socks: (from America)
- Black Leather Shoes: Divided, H&M
- Hat: SM Accessories
Outfit Talk: this top’s structure and material is made for colder weather and I didn’t have any chance during Summer to wear this at all (despite buying this early April? *laughs*). I chose this particular outfit for my short frolicking at USJ. Super comfy!
And, oh, channeling my love for somewhat Hime-kei styling with a touch of Zettai Ryouiki. Tee hee!
- Asymmetrical, Sleeveless Beige Dress: thrift
- Off-White Cardigan: (from America)
- Pink Scarf: (gift from Rani-rabbit and Papa Aaron)
Outfit Talk: another comfy outfit with a Mori-feel to it. I specifically put this together with the excuse to use this cute gift scarf. Ahehehe! And because we were particularly heading to a park with lotsa greens and deer, I thought looking a bit forest-girl-ish with a princessy-feel would be fitting. Layer on layer on laaayer!
- School Girl Top: thrift
- Black Denim Skirt: Hot Topic
- Black Lace Tights: Nordstrom
Outfit Talk: a little dressing-down compared to the others. Osaka’s temperature gradually got warmer and I really just wanted to look like simpler than my other coordinates.
This top is actually a cheating-sort since the polo inside is “removable” and the vest can be worn—— wait, I’m not even going there! Ahahahaha!
- Blue Off-Shoulder Top: (from Artisque Boutique @ Lilac)
- Long Lace Skirt: GU (@ Shinsaibashi, Osaka)
- Round Glasses: GU ( @ Shinsaibashi, Osaka)
Outfit Talk: this was what I wore during the 28th, on my birthday. Perhaps there were three instances that I was approached to be asked if I were a foreigner. *laughs*
The skirt was a personal pick when I visited GU (UNIQLO’s lower-priced sister-brand) and fell in love at first sight at it. Well, it’s going to be tricky wearing this now since the rainy season just started. *laughs awkwardly* Still, the skirt is really dressy and I love feeling extra hime-y with it!
This will probably the last hoorah for my blonde hair. I won’t correct the roots anymore and would let my real hair grow back. I did say that I wanted to be sunny blonde on my birthday and I want to change hair color to a darker shade after that.
…surely, Caramel/Milk tea hair color ain’t dark. *laaaughs* But I really want my hair to look “good enough to eat” next!
What did I wish for my birthday? I actually haven’t given a good thought on it. Maybe be blessed with more conviction and faith towards myself and my skills? Material-speaking, perhaps more filing/organizing contraptions. Lately I’ve been wishing for inner peace as well, for calming the storm in the heart.
I wish to learn and discover a lot more about myself and that I wouldn’t be afraid to take risks. *shies away* And that my heart would be taken with utmost care.
