To all of my US readers, Happy Memorial Weekend and Happy long weekend as well! 🙂 Me and my family went to a Memorial Day picnic by the lake with fellow Filipinos a few hours ago and this is what I wore… well, sort of. This is what I wore to church this morning and I basically changed my top and shoes to something more casual and more comfy when we hit the lake. Of course, I could not resist wearing this gorgeous flowy high low wrap skirt by the lake because it blew dramatically with the wind. It would have been more dramatic to take cinemagraphs by the lake – why didn’t I thought of that? So yeah, I’m going to take note of that and make sure to do so in the next couple of days!
My outfit consists of red, pink and rose colors that are pretty much in the same region in the color wheel. I love that this kind of color-blocking turns out to be very subtle even though you’d think they would clash. The red sleeveless top is a perfect pop of color while the rose skirt gives a feminine and romantic feel to this outfit. I finished the look with a belt in pink and navy blue stripes to add fun and break the formal look of the two pieces. It gives this classy outfit a sporty look to it, making it more modern and young.
Another way to modernize or make a look youthful is with a use of a headband! Just make sure to choose elegant and neutral-colored ones to keep it age-appropriate. The base of my headband is a peachy rose color bejeweled with multi-colored stones in clear, pewter and peach.
Love that the wooden heel dominates the back of my Tory Burch pumps, making it more Spring/Summer appropriate!
Love the pleats in this wrap skirt.
Look at how it moves beautifully!
I hope you had fun over the weekend! Tomorrow is gonna be sale-shopping day and a little get-together dinner with the family!
