H&M white top // Random linen pants // Havaianas flipflops // Redherring satchel // Gap cap // Aldo sunnies
Don't you love lazy days? I figured this look would pass on something I'd wear on a chill day where I'm free to move around and feels breezy all over which the Urban Dictionary refers to as lounge-wear. Or when somebody would ask me for a weekend getaway to the beach and I have just about 5 minutes to get dressed.
The mesh top is from H&M, I've stocked on some pretty good quality t-shirts during the sales the Emirates would have just about every month. This is a steal from the H&M rack which is a crop top actually. The pants have got to be my favorite part of the whole outfit. It's unbranded, possibly a hand-me-down but I couldn't be happier I finally fit in them and not look as baggy as it ought to be. Instead it hangs loosely on the waist line, making me look like I have a slightly smaller tummy than it is in reality. I also loved how the white mesh compliments the pink linen, it's just so feminine and fresh! I may be fond of clashing plains with prints at times but this time, I decided to clash plains with plains but with mixed textures. You should definitely try something new soon too! Start with the subtle changes first if you can't be bold at once. Just like what I did here.
Totally rocking the Hollywoodish Just Jared look there, don't I? What with the sunnies and the cap bits and that accidental shot made by sister who takes my outfit photos for me. Although if I'm being honest, this scene may have given me the whole Hollywood thought, too. Of course Rachel's lounge-wear is one notch higher than mine. Although just one notch, honey and I'm working on that already. HA!
Have a great the-rest-of-the-week one and all! Cheers!
Until when? Until that day you'd finally stop asking questions because someone already gave you all the answers. But until then, random faces are vital still.

From Nuki Sabio. After beating our nemesis, South Korea to advance into the FIBA Asia C'ship battle with Iran!
Team Qatar was undefeated going into that game and we were fresh from a loss against Team Chinese Taipei so I really didn't know what to expect but I know we're in for a good match and that there's no more chance for us to watch a live game since we've got no work on that Friday and Thursday is a rest day for the boys. I have to make this happen and the Boies need to make a win happen! Wednesday though, they face Team Hong Kong but between the two, my fangirl instincts told me to go for this one! And boy was my gut feel accurate or what!

"I turn 27 in a month and this is my first long weekend in a super long while. My early 20's self would have had something planned - out of town, sleepover, something something. But my almost 30ish self would just want to restore and revocer - whatever's lost and everything to regain. So I can face my birthday month head on. Not that I am big on birthdays, I'm HUGE actually. Like sixfooterish huge. HA!"

H&M striped bodysuit / Plains & Prints trousers / H&M wedges & scarf / Mango bag
Let me start by saying this is not a sponsored post. (Then let us all have a moment since I have long wanted to drop those lines but I never did till now! HAHA!) Anyway... This may not be a sponsored one but it is however a homage to my girl, @annecurtissmith for being the newest brand ambassador of Plains & Prints!
Spot my 4 year old trousers, one of the oldest pairs I have, and it's from good ole brand! I have always avoided wearing them though since I personally felt like it doesn't flatter me at all. Until I found all the right pieces to put together and create a look that will suit my body type the most, at least by my standards. Since I'm already wearing a loose fitting pair of pants, I wanted to create an illusion of shape by pairing it with a slightly fitting top. I chose this striped bodysuit and it's a given it will surely hug me tight. I get pretty conscious whenever I wear body-hugging-clothes so I had to add something that will distract people from looking at my front area so I did add a busy-looking-scarf. Stripes and prints, doesn't get any busier than that ei? The rightest choice of shoes would be wedges or a pair of stilettos to help you maximize the effect of the look, or else you'd look like a walking human floor mop. This time, I opted for my colorful wedges from H&M with just the right height and would add some color to a rather monochrome look. I am never without a bag, let alone a big bag. This one's from Mango I got on sale from one of the Emirates' season sales! It can fit everything I need for a day inside!
And lastly, let me leave you with this.
The Annebisyosa meets the Joysilusyonada.
Our perfect partnership with Plains & Prints.
