Nanay's 78th Birthday Party

Hello blog friends! It's been a week since my grandmother's birthday and I can still feel the stress it gave us. Her annual celebration is always divided into three parts because of how many her guests are. First part is in the morning, where her fellow church goers and neighbors get to attend. Second, the faculty members of Mother Lourdes Learning School and PhilCST take their turn during lunch. And third, close friends and family gathering for dinner and finale. I will be sharing more details and photos on my other blog In My Shoes when I have them time. Please check it out some time too!

Anyhoo, I will be sharing with you photos of what I wore that day.
This was my daytime outfit. I bought it at a Department Store for a reasonable price. It has the perfect shade of violet, which is the ultimate favorite color of my grandmother. I love how it fits me perfectly and the abstract/tribal feel print lovely too. Don't you think?
And here now is my evening outfit. If you have been reading/following my blog, you can see that I love to mix and match colors. I think it's the boldest step I made, fashion speaking of course. It's the first time I wore a square pants. I saw Laureen Uy, the writer/owner of the blog Break My Style during one of her scenes in a television show wearing similar pants and decided to try it. I hope I wore it as good as she did. Anyways, I recommend you to check out her blog! :)

You can also check these outfits on Lookbook. Thanks very much!
PS. I sang during the party. I also want to share the video of my song. Pump it up! Hope you all like it! :)

  11. I love your evening attire. I have just recently gotten into color blocking myself. I bought an emerald dress, sapphire footed tights and I want to wear them together with my mustard yellow suede pumps. I think you can wear jewel tones in any combination and it look chic.
