Yesterday, we celebrated the National Consciousness Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (VAW). It was the kick off activity of an 18-day global campaign that runs from Nov. 25 to Dec. 12 here in the Philippines. Orange is the official color of this event. And in solidarity with this cause, I’m gonna share with you today an outfit of the same color. 🙂
I wore this outfit when we went out for lunch at Nuvali, Laguna to celebrate my brother’s birthday. It was my second time to visit the place and I still find it really nice and relaxing. It is another good place away from the busy roads of Manila (just like Tagaytay).
It was my second time to visit this place and I noticed there is still an overpopulation of koi fish in the man-made lake. They make the waters look vividly orange but I just feel bad for these animals; there’s just too many of them.
My look is somehow inspired by the samurai outfit. Kept it simple with only a belt and a pair of stud earrings as my accessories. I think my style has evolved drastically from my college days. If you visit my old blog, you will find me wearing lots of short shorts and some borderline racy outfits which would usually start up a skirmish with my dad. lol
Maybe the transition was brought about by the fact that i have substantial disposable income now and so I can afford to buy really nice clothes – the clothes that I could only dream of back in college when I had to survive with very meager allowance. haha.
My mom used to tell me that the best part of life is when you have your own career, are earning your own money, and don’t have any serious obligations to take care of. She would always remind me to enjoy being single and not rush getting married and all that jazz because I cannot get my youth back anymore when I start my own family. Now, I can say that she is right. I am having the best time of my life right now!
So to my young readers, make sure you finish your studies so that you can get a decent job. Then enjoy your earnings. Spend for yourself, spend for your parents, spend for your friends. Enjoy your hard-earned money because that point in your life will never come again! 🙂 Don’t make irresponsible decisions that would rob you off this opportunity. 🙂
Anyways, more pictures from our lunch that day:
