Mid-Week Musings

August 19, 2014

i say, mid-week rut. 
ever had that day or week when everything feels a little off? too monotonous, too meh, too blah? i dont know if its just hormones or the weather is just getting into my nerves lately. one day its crazy hot, the next day it's raining cats and dogs you dont even know what your default everyday outfit should be. sandals? ballet flats? booties, perhaps? light, airy cotton tops or warm, comfortable sweaters? 
i remember heading out with my mom a few days ago to do a little shopping for her upcoming trip and i wore this flimsy chiffon top paired with highwaist shorts when, at the middle of the day, it decided to rain. it rained really hard, it was cold outside but not as cold as it was in Ayala, i was shivering the entire time we were there! yes, like i said before, i get cold quite easily. and i told ya, bipolar weather, heather. lol. lame.

so because i feel like im stuck in a mid-week rut, my nights are longer than that of my days (blame it on the husband's crazy facetime schedule lol,) and my current must-read books aren't of much help, i turn to online fashion, lifestyle and design portals for some late night gawking. 
i had a closet sale recently and was quite happy and overwhelmed by the outpouring of support of my cousins, friends and readers, i couldn't help but identify with this fashion article from Who What Wear. it basically teaches you how to curb your shopping escapades and edit your existing wardrobe without breaking your heart.

another article that i find quite timely and relevant is the highlight of the ever comfortable flats. pointy toe flats, to be exact, that definitely spells urban chic sans the discomfort. so with this in mind, i rounded up some of my favorite flats and immediately remembered this white pointy toe Primadonna flats from Zalora.
it's pointy-toe, ankle strap and white! something that i've been looking for in a pair of shoes for quite some time now. it goes well with most of my fluted hem skirts, boyfriend jeans and dainty sundresses- quite possibly one of my favorite pair of white flats to date! and because i am all for trendy and comfortable shoes that doesn't break the bank, i went ahead and searched for other pairs that i can add to my rack and chanced upon these chic pointy flats at Zalora. i am eyeing that pink pointed flats with tassels and snakeskin pointed ankle-straps that are perfect for everyday wear- rain or shine! gotta admit, we all need that versatile pair that can weather both dry and wet seasons. nobody wants wet, soggy toes when you're out and it decides to rain, right? ack!
