tap your heels together three times

Topshop hat, my dad's top, Regatta pants, Muji bag, Schu wedges

Just a quick hello and an old outfit post before I share photos from my family's trip. I'm still editing and sifting through them, so it might take a while for me to upload everything (read: I'M LAZY). Hopefully, I'll have a batch up by this weekend! I know my photos won't do the beautiful cities any justice, but hey, maybe that's a good excuse to go back again someday? There are so many wonderful places to see yet so little time, really! One can only ever dream.

We're actually in Milan right now, which is our final stop for Europe. Tonight's our last night here, then we're off to Singapore tomorrow to visit my sister and my brother-in-law for one night before heading back to Manila. It's been kinda hectic and stressful, to be honest, but at least it satisfies the globetrotter in me.

I'm sad that this vacation's coming to an end. More than anything though, I'm excited to go home to see my boyfriend, my baby nephew, to concentrate on job hunting, and to EAT RICE!

simple but flirty

When it comes to my everyday dressing style, I think it's safe to say that I like to keep it simple but flirty. I lean more towards subtle colors and light, easy-to-wear fabric, and I generally don't go for a lot of frou-frou and layers. I guess it may have the tendency to look boring for others, but for me, it works! And that's all that matters, right? (More about my personal style in an interview I did for Magdalena's blog, Mjukt Ljus. Thanks, dear!)

In other news, I've started packing for a trip to Europe with my parents next week. We're heading to France and then Italy, and we'll be there for about three weeks. I'm still worrying about how I'm going to handle the job thing while I'm out of the country, and kind of sad about having to miss the hype of the last Harry Potter movie (yes, it's a big deal for me!), but I'm excited for this trip all the same. Can't wait to lug my camera around for pictures!

Who knows, maybe things will fall into place while I'm on vacation. Now, how to fit everything in one suitcase...
