Summer time is my most favorite time of the year, yes, says the tropical girl. I mean there is nothing more amazing than being able to play dress up because the season allows you to. I must admit that after my move to Canada, it becomes too difficult to find dresses that suits my body type or the one with the print or details that I like. Online shopping is now my favorite thing because it allows me to chose and shop the clothes that I like such as this one from Light in the Box. I am actually hoarding pink dresses for summer so stay tuned for more!

Another photoshoot session with my darling friend, Cheny Santizas at The Henry Hotel in Cebu. We’ve had this planned for a long time because I love the hotel’s vintage interior. I was a bit reluctant at first because I like an outdoor photohoot with natural light than indoor with light reflectors, but of course photographers can always work their magic by playing with the ISO, aperture and shutter speed which until now I find a bit technical even if I am slowly learning it myself. I know how to set ISO and aperture, but I don’t have the patience to change it when room lighting changes so I prefer everything to be outdoor and set my camera on auto mode. Lol.

Talking about my outfit, I decided for a lace on lace because pourquoi pas? Denim on denim is not a fashion crime and so is lace on lace. Culottes is an ideal summer wear which is what I am really obsessing next to floral dresses because I love the comfort it gives me. Fashion evolution is taking me by surprise lately, who would have thought, Culottes which is an 18th century fashion that started as men’s breeches become a mainstream fashion staple for women’s of 21st century. Plus there is no shoe requirement when wearing Culottes. Depends on the occasion, it can be paired with flats, rubber shoes, high heels, wedges or whatever you think would be ideal. It is the most versatile piece ever girl must have in their wardrobe. For this outfit, I wear it with pumps because lace embodies formality. Finally, rule of fashion, wear a black underwear beneath a see through top, but should it be a white top? Answer is no, take it from me. *wink

If there is one thing that I am truly proud about myself, it is me being a dreamer and making my dream a reality. I was not born with a golden spoon in my mouth, but my mom taught me the power of perseverance, that anything can happen if you believe in yourself.

 

Back in the days, I was a shy girl, I can easily blend in the crowd without you noticing me. I am a girl without a name, always hidden on a plain sight. I never believed in myself. The only person who believed in me is my own mother, she would always encourage me to go to the stage, perform and excel academically. I never do that back in high school and college. I never fully realized the power of my dreams until after college. I pity my old self for being lame, but now I know that my old self is already proud of what I have become. I am a perfect example of a late bloomer.

Weaving a dream is not easy. It takes a lot of motivation and will power. No one can convince you of the things you are capable of doing than yourself. Your confidence, guts and ability will take you far. I am not talking about blogging specifically but my dreams and aspirations in general.

 

My transformation did not happen overnight. There are people who become instrument for me to fully realize my capabilities. These are the people I met along the way. They shaped me and molded me.

 

Let me quote Harriet Tubman when she said; “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”. To all my readers, wake up and make your dreams a reality.
