Daisy Skirt + Huge Announcement

I find it difficult to turn down an adorable skirt. I've been obsessed with them lately (if you haven't noticed). They're so easy to wear and style that I do not have to spend a great deal of time planning an outfit... like this one. 

I've had this daisy print skirt on my wishlist for a long time. It took me a while to finally decide to click on the "Add to Cart" button. I tried to talk myself out of buying a new skirt, thinking I don't need a new one. But then I gave in to the urge and decided to buy the skirt. And I was happy I did. 



This is one of my favorite looks that I sported during my vacation to Malaysia. The ballerina top from HerBench provided enough comfort while the skirt added the chic factor to my outfit. I love the flared bottom to give the look an ultra girl-y feel. However, I had to wear a scarf over it when we visited the Batu Caves because I was told it was a tad too short. Oops!

This skirt was one of my favorites in the most recent batch of orders I got from SheInside. The fabric is of high quality - which is really important for me. The back of the skirt is also garterized so you do not have to worry about getting the measurements exactly right when you order it from the site. As of now, I'm pretty sure this won't be the last time you'd be seeing this skirt on my blog. Don't say I didn't warn you. :)


Meanwhile, for some exciting news: we just got ENGAGED! I wanted to wait a while before I make this big reveal on my blog. It happened during our trip in Malaysia. To be specific, we were on our very first cable car ride when he proposed to me. We were on our way to Genting Highland on a cable car when in the middle of the ride, he suddenly played the song "Marry Me" by Train. I looked him in the eye and can tell that he was getting misty-eyed. I knew he was about to do something special when he started doing this monologue. And then... he got down on one knee. That is when he whipped out the ring! I have no clear memory of what happened after because everything felt like a blur to me. At the same time, it seemed like time stood still. Surreal is an understatement. It took me about 2 to 3 hours to allow the feelings to sink in. Good thing my friends were able to capture a video so we'd have something to look back on and re-live this moment for years to come. 

Here is a glimpse of my outfit during my travel and a glimpse of my engagement ring. The ring itself is a princess cut white diamond in a white gold band adorned with 14 diamonds. I am not too big on fancy jewelries but he did a great job choosing this ring! The ring is reflective of my personal style - subtle but sophisticated and feminine. 




Do you feel the same way about skirts?

Wishlist: Jumpsuits and Two-Piece Suits

A few months ago, I had a very different opinion of jumpsuits. I was skeptical to try it fearing that it might not be the most flattering thing to wear for my body type. Surprisingly, I liked it and is now looking to add another one in my closet. I think this is the perfect summer wear because it is easy and light, helping you to stay cool during the warmer months. And if you're traveling, it is pretty practical to pack, too, since you won't have to worry about pairing it with anything. Just put it on and go!

Thanks to online shopping, it is fairly convenient to browse around for cute jumpsuits and two-piece suits! I've done the browsing for you so make sure to check below for some of my favorites that I spotted online:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

I am petite so I will still be testing the waters on pantsuits. However, these were too gorgeous not to include here. Someday, I will get my hands on one of these to try! 

How do you feel about wearing pantsuits and jumpsuits? Are you also loving the two-piece suit trend like I do?

Graffiti Shorts

On my trip to Malaysia, Langkawi Island was our first stop. We spent two nights and three days at this beautiful island. I compare it to the Philippines' Boracay island, which is a hot spot for tourists. The beach is also within walking distance from the resorts so you can conveniently take a dip, have a picnic along the beach, or engage in water sports activities whenever you want. I was quite overwhelmed by the size of the island. There were too many sights to see and/or explore. Hence, comfortable clothes and footwear were a must.



This blue graffiti print shorts from Sheinside was one of those items that I bought specifically for this trip. I bought a lot of comfortable shorts because I knew there was going to be a lot of walking and traveling. And so, I tried my best to stay as comfortable as possible. And there is nothing more casual and vacation-ready than a pair of shorts and spaghetti strap top. I love this shorts, though, because it is quite versatile. You can wear it low-key and casual like I did here, or you can also pair it with a more dressy top.
