Swimsuit Dress

For those who are not so confident with wearing skin-bearing beach wear like me, then I guess this swimsuit dress is perfect for you. Even though I'm slim/skinny I still don't feel comfortable showing my body or more skin than the usual. Bikinis are just too revealing (like lingerie) for me to be worn outside lol so weirddd. Mahiyain and may pagka-conservative po kasi ako di lang halata. Hehe. But this swimsuit is love. It also doubles as a dress when you're at the beach so no need for cover-ups!

Oriental Bloom

Here's my 2nd outfit in Bohol! Refrained from pairing this mullet skirt with a body-hugging top and paired it with a loose and flow-y blouse instead. I figured, with a top like this, the whole look will appear more laid-back---perfect for summer and for doing touristy things all daaay! I think I look like a modern oriental princess here actually, hence the title. Leave it to this skirt to make you feel like one with its trail billowing behind you when you walk! As for these shoes, well they're inspired by the Viviene WestwoodxMelissa collab. I think they're a nice alternative to your beach flipflops (see my previous post for jelly flats). So what do you think of this look? I hope you like it! :)

Paint My Summer

It looks like I'm wearing a dress made out of canvas with colorful paint brushstrokes on it, right? Ahh well summer's perfect for dresses like this. I wore this on our first day in Bohol, actually. I came straight from the airport so I opted to wear something that was comfy, breezy and made the people who saw me that day feel that summer really was in its full swing here in the Philippines! Haha! Actually, I was wearing a bright green linen blazer over this dress at the airport to keep me warm from the A/C and just took it off when we landed in Bohol so you could really say that I was more of an eyesore/walking crayola to those who were unfortunate enough to come across me. Haha! Completed the look with equally blinding and bright accessories like this bib necklace from Simone's Closet and stone-encrusted jelly flats. I was right in choosing to wear this pair 'coz we went to an underground cave that afternoon where a small body of water was found and the ground was moist. I didn't need to change into flipflops! Good decision right there, Jonessa! *pats thyself on the back!*

Pink and Black

How's summer treating you? I'm making the most out of mine 'coz my sabbatical is about to end soon so I've been going out left and right (as you may have noticed). Tomorrow I'm gonna leave Manila again and this time we're going to Bohol. I haven't started packing yet but no worries since my mom bought us a lot of new clothes for our Bohol Getaway! The woman just can't stop herself from shopping every freaking time she goes on a trip. Haha! 

Anyway, this was my outfit on our first day in our province, Buhi (CamSur). I built my whole look around this detachable sequined peterpan collar from Flatterbuy. This was originally just a maxi skirt and striped tank top but when I layered on a mesh-y/net-y tank over the striped one, it created this lace-y look from afar. Don't you think that the collar made such a huge and interesting difference on this otherwise simple outfit? You can win one of these cute collars on my upcoming giveaway! Stay tuned! :)

Print Clash

Spent a few days in Caramoan during the Holy Week before we headed to our hometown in Buhi, CamSur. Let me tell you about the beaches and islands in Caramoan. They were absolutely gorge. The sands were so fine and almost white. The sea was pristinely clean and didn't smell very salty/fishy. The numerous mini islands each had something different to offer and there were hardly any people and resorts built in these beaches so you can really enjoy the purity of the place. So for this beach trip, I wore clashing prints that surprisingly went well together. Since it was finally summer, I thought I'd go all out in prints and colors in celebration of the season! What do you think?

Short and Sweet

Hello from Caramoan! How's your Holy Week so far? I'm having an awesome time at the moment 'coz we just came from beach! However, I'm not too thrilled of my sunburned skin as I'm really not a beach babe. Haha! What I do love about the experience though was we got to transfer from one virgin island to another! I really recommend that you visit our province, CamSur. Of course I'm slightly biased but I'm quite proud that Bicol is finally "making waves" *wink* as a tourist destination. 

On to my outfit post! This was just a simple get-up put together last minute when my mom, sister and I watched The Hunger Games. Normally I'd ramble about my opinion on a movie that I really love but I'd like to keep this post short and sweet for now. Anyway...where was I? Oh yeah, about the outfit! I was feeling icky to wear something body-hugging and was extra lazy to doll up that day that I just wore this. I know it may look like it's bordering on "manang" but I just absolutely adore midi skirts! I hope you like it still! :)

For some strange reason I named this post "Nightlock" after the poisonous berries in The Hunger Games. I guess, it has something to do with this deep violet wall. And now that I think about it, my outfit here can be compared to said berries for it was a little too daring for my taste as well. But since I am in no way blessed with lovely womanly curves, it wasn't too skimpy-looking on me. I guess being skinny has its perks too. Lol. 

Anyway, this was my outfit two Saturdays ago. My supermodel friend Camille was one of the organizers for this event so we were kind of obliged to come. Haha! I decided to wear this lace-y number because it always gets humid in clubs. Now, I wouldn't leave the house looking like a baby prostitue, would I? (Mean Girls reference yo!) So I grabbed this long silky blazer from my mom and voila! I'm exposed and covered up all at the same time! :)
