Ilocos Day 2: Patapat Viaduct + Outfit Post

We're down to the third leg of my travel posts about Ilocos! Hope you're enjoying this virtual tour so far. :) Our first stop for Day 02 was at Patapat Viaduct, a breathtaking bridge overlooking the West Philippine Sea. Sobra sobrang ganda dito. Almost got teary-eyed when I stepped out of our van. The view was extremely stunning and incredible, I don't think these photos can set justice to how beautiful Patapat Viaduct is. Sana mapuntahan niyo rin 'to! I can't put into words how amazing the experience was. The best grabe!

Side story: Locals taught us that if it is your first time to visit a particular place in Ilocos, you should say "Maykan, *your name*" (e.g. Maykan, Arnie) before leaving. "Maykan" is an Ilocano term for "halika" or "come over/let's go". So when I shout out "Maykan, Arnie", it means that I'm calling out my soul to come back to me. Baka maiwan eh! Hahaha!

AWWW ♥ Did I forget to say "Maykan, Arnie" at Patapat Viaduct?? I think I left my heart and soul there...

On me: top with tweed details courtesy of Romwe | fully-sequined shorts from Forever 21 | sunnies courtesy of Freeway

Even if summer's fast-approaching, tops like this one from Romwe can still allow you to sport tweeds. ;)

Forever 21 shorts! I was able to move around freely while wearing this. I also love how the sequins gave an oomph to my supposedly simple and dull outfit. See, no need to subtract style/fashion when it comes to dressing in comfort. It's in the littlest features, sometimes! :)

Di pa rin ako maka-get over sa ganda ng Patapat Viaduct! Definitely my favorite place in Ilocos! If in here I was able to catch sight of the West Philippine Sea, Pacific Ocean sa susunod, keri?? Haha!

I'm sure you've seen these two pretty girls in my previous posts already. Haha! Love you Jemcy and Trisha! ♥ They took all my outfit photos in Ilocos, by the way! ;)

Bangui Windmills, up next!!! xx
