Outfit Details:
Striped top: c/o ASTARS
Mustard pocket skirt: American Apparel (a present from long ago)
Orange tights: Target
Leather loafers: Thrifted
DIY button necklace


Sorry if some of these photos are a touch blurry, it bugs me but those were the best out of the bunch! While Grant takes some of my photos if we happen to be together, a lot of the times it's just me, my camera, and my tripod. Focusing on something and then hopping back into frame doesn't always guarantee results. Sigh.

Anyway, I just wanted to say those orange tights from Target are the best! Until proven otherwise, I firmly believe Target makes the best stockings for the least amount of money. I think I bought those tights like 3 years ago and they have zero holes, rips, or runs. Good stuff.

This is a random thought, but I was thinking of it today so I'll ask: are there any words you just can't bring yourself to type or use in a sentence? For me it's  the word "yummy". It must have been something early on that triggered my disdain for it, but i'm not sure. Maybe I'll blame Rachel Ray. To me, it's just such a cheesy, zero thought adjective. Perhaps i'm being harsh. I do know you will never catch me saying it. 

Okay, enough about that. Now this:

  8. Love the look :) Those colours are lush!
    The look book looks lovely :)

    I can't think of any words I wouldn't use right now. Usually when I hear a word I dislike used a lot before I know it I blurt it out in every sentence. Suggestable much? ;)

  9. Hmm, a word I can't stand is "moreish." Which is like the British version of yummy. As in, "those chocolate biscuits are so moreish." Makes me want to jump out the window!

  13. i just love the yellow skirt. the tone of it! it'a not a "half-baked" kind of yellow, if you know what i mean.

    i'm glad to hear you're kapampangan. i'm 1/4 kapampangan, but i do not speak the language. i know the whole "atin ku pong sing-sing" if that counts. :D anyway, enjoy europe! that trip would make for very interesting blogs! new items and backgrounds, or one (err,.. two).

  15. I have a soft spot for colored tights and yours are quite yummy! Just kidding - I too hate that word. Let's go with "scrumptious" instead.

  20. Those fabulous orange tights are from Target?! They are so adorable! I definitely need to haul my butt there pronto! :)

    And hmmm...I'm not sure if there is a word I don't feel comfortable writing. I guess I just throw it all out there. Lol.

  22. I also find it a bit cheesy to say the word 'yummy'. It's even painful to actually say out loud. I can't think of any words that I refuse to say other than the previous example. Now I'm gonna be thinking about this for a long time :) & I agree that Target does make some nice tights and even socks for a decent price.

  23. now I wish we have Target in Manila, those tights are smokin and I am such a big fan of tights!

  24. i can't get on the whole "food porn" "shoe porn" "shelter porn" wagon... that may be the only time i type those words.. its just so awkward.
