I used to hear those violins playing heart strings like a symphony

wearing vintage maxi skirt & pin striped blazer, Aldo pumps, vintage Chanel bag


I'm in love with maxi skirts.. they are the best thing ever invented. I would trade in my ridiculous shoe collection for a truck load of these, and I love how they can be dressed up with a sharp blazer or an embellished cardigan, or dressed down with a t-shirt. I wore this to mass yesterday.. it was my Dad's death anniversary. I miss him terribly ♥

Hectic doesn't even begin to describe the last few days.. I made a last minute decision to get on a plane back to Boracay. I didn't realize I had been here for two months already, can you imagine? I have gotten so attached to my new Cebu friends, I'm going to be a little depressed when I leave, but I'm also beyond excited to see my island family again. The little get together Eden planned for tonight should help soothe my pain of leaving.. I'm looking forward to one last time of sitting on floors and downing shots of something that will guarantee me a head ache the next day.. we bought a big bottle of whiskey and I'm already nervously shaking at the thought of breaking it open.. my sickness rendered me sober for much too long!


PS: I'm super excited for my shoot with the most amazing Hannah Bacalla today!

Oh tell me about it, I love maxi skirts! They are the best thing to wear, wear them with anything and you can still look chic. I also love the awkward length as well as the colour!
