package haul!


when i wore a cropped top in my most recent my way, her way feature, a couple of you suggested pairing it with a maxi skirt. the contrast of wearing a short top with a long bottom interested me so i gave it a try.

outfit: tminx cropped tee, vintage skirt, f21 shades, scarpasa sandals

i liked how it turned out actually. except for that first photo, did you notice that i wasn't looking at the camera with this set? totally unintentional, but i still like it.


anyway..
i finally received that last package that i've been expecting for this month. so that only calls for another haul post! hurray! can i just say, i'm such a dork.. when i know i'm expecting something in the mail i try not to open it until all of the packages arrive. then, i open them altogether so that i feel like it's christmas time and i have so many gifts! hahahaha! well, it's actually more of a treat to myself at the end of a long day.

shopbop package had the cobra necklace

some samples i got from daphne (thanks hun!)


another clothes swap package from jasmine!

chic swap item from olivia
when life is being good like this to me, i tend to feel a bit generous. therefore, stay tuned for a giveaway next week!!!

lol that's what happened on my first day too, i was the only one who was in dress skirt and blouse while everyone there wore jeans and t-shirts!
you look so cute darling, that's a lovely outfit nonetheless =)

i like it that i get to dress up at work! i certainly can't wear heels during weekend beach getaways or say, a whole saturday shopping at the mall. being at an office is the perfect setting to wear the nicest clothes since the environment is good and i don't need to walk around too much. hahaha! im glad a lot of people actually can relate to my situation :)

  3. You know, I like the proportions of your outfit but I think it would be more succesful if the print on the skirt was different. I feel its a little too boho/hippie for the neon colors of the shirt. Maybe a maxi in a solid color or really large, black and white geometric print would work.

    Doesn't change the fact that you're still adorable :)

  17. Hi:

    I love that print top and your maxi skirt and sandals, you have great taste and those sunglasses finish the look. Are you a fan of Bravo's TV Project Runway or Bravo's "The Rachel Zoe Project?" She would say your outfit is, "bananas," which is gorgeous!

    Anyway, just saw your post from Vero blog and was curious, so glad I visited here, love your web blog. Nameste.
