I’ve always been partial to Sundays. Yes, I mean, as a working girl, I look forward to Fridays the most, but Sundays have this special sort of “air” that I can’t quite put my finger to. It’s an amalgam of everything–how the air smells particularly on a Sunday morning, how steady and serene the world seems–it’s the perfect day to laze around in some quaint cafe while you sip on some tea, or maybe drive around the metro without having to stress about crazy, reckless drivers bumping the left rear fender of your car (yes, this happened to me on a Monday).
On the other hand, I spend most of my Sundays in Rockwell–mostly to shop, sometimes to watch blockbusters, but always to spend time with my boyfriend. We call these our “Sundates”–since we both have stable day jobs, we want to maximize our weekends and spend as much time with one another.
For those who are subscribed to my Facebook, don’t let my party photos fool you. Yes, we attend events every once in a while but we’re usually very chill. We meet up for dinner, walk around the mall for a bit, then head out to watch a movie or have coffee afterwards.
We like conversing a lot–talking about books, philosophy, movies, life in general, and how we see ourselves in the future.
So on a particular “Sundate”, this was what I wore. Because it’s rainy season, I’ve been wearing maxi skirts and dresses out more often–the muted variety of course. Nothing too bold and loud to trick you into thinking it’s still summer.
But being the Queen of Cropped Tops (TM), I paired up this elegant maxi-skirt with a rather casual cut-out variety. This has been my uniform for the past four months–I pair off a cropped top with a high-waist skirt and voila, casual day-out no-brainer formula. I’ve probably around 20 or more cropped tops–in different prints and colors. I just love it!
This top, on the other hand, I have in 2 other colors–one in leopard, and the other in Cerulean.
Here are some photos my boyfriend took of our Sundate!
The shoes and clutch I bought two weeks before the sale. Please insert my sad face here. Likewise, my boyfriend and I turn one month today (we joke that it’s been five years and one month)–so here’s to a year, and then forever!
