Mixed Emotions

Another quick outfit post! :) Sharing to you now what I wore to the Bench/Dimensione x Daphne Home Scents Launch last week. Since it was an afternoon gathering, I chose to be on a laid-back and chill (but still event-worthy) ensemble. The weather that day was also too unpredictable hence I took a break from wearing loud colors from head-to-toe.

On me: black cape dress worn as a top courtesy of Style Nanda | floral shorts from Bloggers United 2 | yellow candy bag from Super Sale Bazaar | Parisian neon peep-toes | necklace courtesy of Ms. Amyline Ching

Decided to tuck in this cape dress to my floral shorts because I didn't feel like going all-black that day. And can I just say, I really love how breezy this cape dress is! Thank you so much to Style Nanda for this! :)

I think I remember that I wore my Bench watch with this outfit, too. Just failed to flaunt them in the photos, but I swear, it's really pretty and it gives me sporty vibes! Gonna wear it again in my upcoming outfit posts to give justice to its beauty! :)

Thank you so much to our dearest PR Guy, Paul, for these shots!

Side story... :p

I'm actually in the process of composing my turnover speech but I squeezed in drafting this post, not because I'm running out of words to say with the speech, but because I'm nearly getting emotional towards it. Ang bilis ng panahon! Same time last year, I was on a very strict diet (including no rice and sweets for 2 months, that was hard for me because I love overeating), went through dreadful talent rehearsals 'til evening, not to mention the very early "call times" for activities the next day, felt so ugly about myself... and my list of all the reasons to give up with this pageant journey went on and on. But you see, despite all those pessimistic ideas, I continued to stay strong for those who believed in me. Nakakaloka, nakaka-pressure, pero sobrang worth it. :) Anyway, I'll make more kwento about that in my turnover post soon! We'll be recording the speech today so I need to focus on this na! Just needed to breathe and let it out lang ng konti, hihi. :)

Have an amazing Friday, loveys! xx
