The weather’s been pretty awful lately with the never-ending rain showers and the gloomy skies. I only hope that most of us are tucked safely in our own homes, warm and dry. Of course, it doesn’t account for the rest whose houses are flooded and whose passages are blocked. So for those of us lucky enough to be secure and comfortable, continue to watch the news from time to time to get updates, and pray for those who are affected.
Hopefully, in the years to come, the government will be able to fix and streamline our country’s sewage system.
Speaking of the government, I’m sure a lot of you are aware about the political state of our country, especially in regards to the pork barrel. If you follow me over at Twitter and Facebook, you’d be privy of my rants about it. I’m at a loss for words honestly–a bit disheartened, but mostly mad. I think there isn’t much that we can do as individuals but I think we can make a difference by speaking up and keeping up-to-date with the news.
Sometimes, I feel shallow for having to post my “outfit-of-the-day” in the midst of all our country’s problems. I don’t mean to sound hypocritical and I’m definitely not being pretentious but maybe it’s about time we give a little bit more than the usual two cents when it comes to our country’s state of affairs.
Anyway, here’s my outfit a week ago during a similarly gloomy day. With all the rain and the lack of sunshine, I think it’s only appropriate to go for muted tones like the olives and the blacks. This was also the outfit that was featured in style bible’s blogger challenge. Here are some more photos:
