Why hello there! And hello eyes (and eyebags!) So I decided to let my sunglasses rest for this one. :)
May is such an awkward month. For those of you who are not from the Philippines, May here in Manila is our summer – rainy season transitional month that’s why we get half and half of each. Sometimes we even get both the scorching sun and the thundering downpour in a span of an hour! True story. I witnessed it once already last week I think. Talk about erratic. And difficult. And awkward. #globalwarminghits #globalwarmingtothemax
Now this look is actually inspired by this weather transition. Basically, what I did was mix my favorite tropical spring/summer staples with some new punk trend autumn/winter items. O diba? Weird na nga may inspiration pang nalalaman! Haha! But, in all fairness, I find the combination quite cool. :) What do you think?
[Currently] If you follow my Hello Rio page on Facebook, you would know that I’m temporarily off from (real) work until Saturday due to the Global Discipleship Congress. Just want to share how grateful I am to be a participant in this international leadership gathering and that I’ve been learning great things the past days which I can’t wait to share with you all. God is really amazing. Felt nothing but blessed since the opening night. I’ll probably share some helpful points in one of my monthly wallpaper posts so do stay tuned! I will have the May installment up by next week! :) Hope you all have a great weekend as well. God bless. :)

Okay, well.. no, not really. This shirt isn’t even mine to begin with. A friend left this in our house so I told her I’d borrow it. Hihi. :) I looooove anything that has great type. This one was just so hard to ignore!
For this outfit, I dressed up the band tee by pairing it with a glamorous skirt for good contrast, a pair of strappy studded heels for some edge, a backpack to keep it relaxed and some good ol’accessories for a bit of extra extra.
But don’t start asking me about Pink Floyd cause I don’t know a thing. I’m really not that cool. I was only after the handsome lettering. Hehe. #justsaying
What do you think? :)
