Lavender and Chiffon

Kept things light and comfy for a short dinner with high school friends :) It's been a while since I last saw them. Too bad not all of them could make it, but I had fun nonetheless! 

About today's look...
Truth be told, I hardly ever go for purple because I don't really find it flattering on me. So why the lavender blouse then? Well it all started for our octet exam. I was assigned the color indigo because we agreed on wearing the colors of the rainbow (HAHA); and I had such a hard time looking for an indigo blouse! It just so happened that my mother's favorite color is lavender. So I raided her closet (again) and found a number of purple vintage pieces. Well none of them were in an indigo shade...so I just kept my "finds" on standby. Especially this blouse right here. Oddly, despite its color, I fell in love with it :)

Sadly, I don't have photos from dinner. I was too lazy to bring my DSLR. No one else brought a camera either haha. Too bad. 
I'll leave it here for now fellas! Watch out for my next post by the way! I'll be having a giveaway from Romwe.com :)

It's Sweeter with a Sweater

Last Saturday, I tried a mix of feminine and preppy. I wanted to wear my high-waist denim shorts that day but the feel of it was a bit rugged. So I wanted to mix it up with something light. The first thing I had in mind was to go light pink. But as I scanned my closet, I couldn't find a light pink top to pair with my shorts. Instead, I found this vintage powder blue sweater that was originally my mom's.

I fell in love with this sweater. You'll notice it has a sheer detail in the middle! We all know how in that is right now. Plus it's so dainty and I love the color! It made me realize how feminine blue can be :P 

There! You can see the sheer detail better. Sorry! My hair (as usual) is all over the place.

On another note, today's our evaluations for being part of the tour cast :-s We worked real hard so wish us luck! :) I wonder what I'll wear for later... They say pink inspires a good atmosphere :))

I'll leave it here for now guys! You can hype this look on Lookbook.nu!
