Forest Florals and Basket Weave Buns

Apparently, there are so many places I don’t know about in Cebu. It’s such a small town, yet I always discover hidden gems (and not so hidden ones) after 22 years in it! I reckon it’s because I was such a sheltered child (always was and always will be), and I was often times restricted on what to do and where to go. Although that sort of hindered a few opportunities and experiences, I choose to look on the bright side. At least I was never kidnapped/held at gun point/victimized by vices, and now at least there’s always something new and exciting to look forward to!

Why did I suddenly come to this realization? Well my sister, Jack, and I pass by this road everyday and we never noticed this beautiful location. Not because we don’t care to look around, but because we always went from point A to point B, fearing the road in between! (Okay, maybe the fear was just me- I blame it on all the years of horror stories!) We eventually found the time to explore it and found a pretty adventure park at the end of this road! But the bad blogger in me forgot to take photos and take down the name! Tssss! I guess that’s another post waiting to happen!

Just my luck, I match my background! I’m a flower patch in the midst of a forest! This is my nth floral on floral look, but can you blame me? It’s just so chic!

It was such a hot day that I decided to bun up my hair to save me from melting! Jack said she wanted to quickly try something on my hair while I was at it, and this is what we came up with 5 minutes later! It would’ve looked a lot cooler on lighter colored hair and if there were more weaves, but given the 5 minute circumstance, I say- messy weaved bun? Check!

I pulled out colors from my top and shorts combo and matched them with my accessories. When doing print on print, it’s easiest to stick to 1-2 pantones and to choose colors that are already in the print.

What do you think about my look?
