On Instagram: August

_August IG

August was bittersweet. It’s by far my toughest month this year, but at the same time, also the best. :) So many challenges but so much growth. Things haven’t been easy, but I praise God because He gave me the opportunity to trust and depend on Him. He allowed me to see that I am nothing without Him. And that when I am weak, He is strong.

“Consider it pure joy when you encounter trails of many kinds, for this develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete not lacking anything.” ~James 1:2-3

Thank you, August! And hello, September! :)

Burda

This dress just reminds me so much of the (Philippine) Barong. I love it! No surprise though, you do know I’m a sucker for embroidery (in Filipino, burda) and all things intricately made. It’s quite hard not to appreciate these things especially if you know just how much hardwork is required to produce them. Anyway! Wore this to yesterday’s #saturdate just cause it’s so appropriately feminine. I really like that this dress is so detailed and it’s girly but at the same time navy and just a tad bit boxy. It’s perfect for me. :)
