Let's move on with the outfit shall we? It's been quite a while since I had a decent outfit post and man did I miss updating my little online style diary. I've been saving this dress until I'm able to complete my utopian vision for it. (meaning I'm NOT supposed to wear it until I get to buy the perfect shoes, purse and accessories to go with it!) Shoes and accessories .. check! Purse would probably take me a few years, so forget about it! This dress is too pretty to be stowed in my closet anyway so do expect a repeat performance. What sets it apart from other kaftans, is the cut at the back. It has a low square cut instead of the usual V-cut.
There's something classy-Bohemian about this dress which instantly catapults you into a whole new rendition of the Haciendera look given the touch of the floppy hat. My sister has been eyeing this hat for quite some time so I, against a very tight work schedule in Cebu, just had to take some time off to pick this up from What a Girl Wants.

Since I started working, I've regained a higher regards for family time. Ever get that strong desire to come home to your family after a full day's work? Well, I get that a lot. I am very thankful that we are still complete come dinner time despite our busy schedules. Since it's payday long weekend, of course there's the obligatory treat c/o moi! I treated my siblings to a Happy Lemon date in Rockwell yesterday.
Here they come, the beautiful ones..Before we got to satisfy our taste buds, we chanced upon Georgina Wilson, who was shopping for uhmm, well.. underpants. It felt slightly awkward to approach her in the middle of her shopping but she was so nice and gorgeous I just HAD to. The moment we stepped out of the store, we saw Solenn waiting for Georgina.
We then met up with our parents, who were having their afternoon coffee in Dulcinea. Churros con chocolate, we meet again.
Pacified the kids with Happy Lemon!
Transferred to Benny's (Rustan's Makati G/F) for dinner

Love from the West Coast. My Aunt and Grandmama just came home from a very short vacay (6 days, to be exact) in California. Why hello there Twinkies and Milanos! I'm having orange Milanos this time.
My family isn't the movie-going type so mall trips usually consist of eating out with a little shopping on the side. As much as I just bade a huge chunk of my first paycheck au revoir, it felt so good to have been able to give back to my family. It's my little way of thanking them for putting up with me for the past 21 years which was anything but smooth sailing. I'm already thinking of next month's treat! Say it with me: Sophie's Mom :) It's been months since I sank my teeth into their mochi truffles. My teeth will one day fall off from over consumption of sweets. I still have a lot of must-trys on my list and I will get to them one sweet confection at a time.
I also had a separate trip to the mall last Sunday. It felt really good to be able to indulge once in a while and shop to your heart's content -- sans the nagging voice of my mother dear. As much as I'd love to blog about new acquisitions, I made a pact with myself to try not to. I'd still want to have that element of surprise when I post something new so mum's the word!
I'm flying to Bacolod later this week for a golf tournament my company is sponsoring. I hope my basic golf lesson from way back when would come in handy. *gulps* Work on weekend excites me!
Thanks for checking in. C'est tout!
