Bridesmaid in White

credit : Vogue

When the news broke that Kate Middleton and Prince William got engaged, the first thing that came up to my mind is the color motif of her bridesmaid dresses. I never thought that its going to be white. We have this stereotype thinking that bridesmaids should not wear the same dress color with the bride , so that she will stand out. But that changed  since  the  royal wedding of Kate and Prince William.

White bridesmaid dresses is a fresh modern take from the stereotypical colorful motif of bridesmaid dresses, it's more elegant , classic and such a clean look.  Even if you take a look at your bridal party pictures  again 20 years later, it still look classy.

After the royal wedding, the famous Kardashian family has their own take too of white bridesmaid dresses . This time with glamorous and lavishing silks and flowy organza mermaid gowns. It is so beautiful.

Turnback to 1960's

 
Hi beauties! Today I'm featuring a 60's inspired floral romper that I bought from Macys . I love the navy color with delicate little floral prints on it. I add an obi belt to cinch up the waist but unfortunately it just keeps rolling up and I have been checking on it time to time . It wasn't brilliant at all. I should have just left it alone in its regular tie or had bought a regular belt with it. I only thought of  adding the belt when I was about to leave the house, it is cute but not very functional.  Let's get back to the romper , I love the style and the georgette material of the romper. I think this kind of romper will go with all body types. Most of all I love the prints, I'm so into floral nowadays. So expect me wearing a lot of florals and prints this summer. Fun fact, did you know that rompers were swimsuits during the 50 and 60s era ? Nowadays, swimsuits got skimpier and skimpier the tinier your bikini the better  and  also nowadays you don't have to be at the beach to wear a romper, you can basically wear it almost everywhere. I'm so not ready for this coming bikini season , when I looked at myself in the mirror , it makes me  want to cry over these post baby pouch ,stretch marks and ugly looking belly button. But when I looked at my precious kids , its all worth it. I will just keep eating healthy and have to go back on my work out routine. So what about you guys, are you ready for bikini season ? Ready or not, let's just have fun and be optimistic, life is short .

Since Memorial weekend is coming up, may I present to you my patriotic ode for America , an American flag inspired outfit. I know , I am such a dork . I just love the combination of the colors red, blue and white. Speaking of memorial weekend , we don't have any big plans, we will just have few people over for barbecue at the patio and swimming in the pool ( if its warm enough ). I looked up for the forecast this coming Monday and it is only on the upper 60s F. I hope it gets warmer than that.
Since memorial weekend is a 3 day weekend, most people go on a short vacation , a camping trip , backyard barbecue , park or beach picnic and also shopping. Memorial weekend shopping is awesome, a lot of stores put a lot of their products on sale. Its almost like black Friday for me. So if you plan on shopping online or in-store, here are some coupon codes for some few stores I am affiliated that are having memorial day sale.

Summer Trend : Skater romper

 

Hi beauties ! One of the perks of being petite , is that you can wear a mini dress without having to worry about being too short on you, like when you bend a little and your behind is exposed , unless your intention is to do a bend and snap ( remember the movie Legally Blond ). First impression , you think this is a dress , nope , its a culottes. So its a skater style romper. I love that its a culottes because you don't have to worry when the wind blows off your skirt, the only thing that gets me when wearing rompers is that you have take  everything down in the restroom , except your bra if you have one on. So its pretty awkward to be almost all naked in public restrooms , really. Sometimes when wearing rompers, I limit my intake on any sorts of drinks , to limit my bathroom trips. I know, you will end up dehydrated or worst kidney problems. Anyway, I don't wear it every single day and I just only went out for dinner, not an all day escapade. So it wasn't a big deal for me. They should make rompers that have little snap on buttons, like baby onesies, so it's easy when you are ready to go lol. It's just a thought. It was pretty windy at that day, so I figured this  blazer will do a good job in keeping me warm , I also love that its floral and very colorful.

Love , Mommy ( A Mother's day special )





 My dear beautiful children ,
 
Since you came into mommy and daddy's  life , it was love at first sight. The first time I held you , I know its going to be a magnificent beautiful journey ahead of us. Ever since then , you stretch and challenge me in so many ways that I could not imagine before. When I was still going  to dental school and doing my internship. I had this silly crazy idea that ,when I'm going to have a baby, I would stock up some gloves and mask , to use it every time I do my baby's poopy diaper. Just like when im doing a treatment to a patient. Little that I know before, that motherhood is totally different from what you thought It would be. The student in me before, never would have thought that a sight of a poopy diaper would bring me so much joy and calmness, just because you haven't poop for days. I didn't mind the mess as long as your healthy and will be ok. When I was pregnant with you Lucas, in preparation of your arrival I have been reading baby books and baby articles online. I was so happy and excited , as a first timer I was unsure of what to expect. Little that I know , that you my sweet boy will just guide me with ease , you were already a great teacher to mommy in so many ways and you didn't even know how to talk yet at that time. You're that amazing! Same as you my darling Livy, mommy thinks she "knows it all" already , little that I know, you have your own version too of surprising mommy with your girly twist , you remind me to slow down and  just calmly ride the change of  life. As each of you growing each day, adapting accordingly to  each of your own milestone, mommy at times  get caught in between on certain circumstances. I strive to get things done .
 My patience is being tested. I strive to fight frustration.
 Just by the look of your eyes, you remind me to take it easy, and don't let vulnerability gets me so easily.  You are both my inspiration , you give me  the strength  and the reason to live. You both are my purpose in life.
 
 Mommy and daddy are blessed and so proud of you both, just for being here in this world. That alone, you already made such a beautiful and meaningful impact in our lives . As you both grow up and evolve each day doing your day to day things in life moving towards the direction in achieving your dreams and there are times you will get confuse about life. Remember this, you are special , you're beautiful and you mean so much to many.
 
I love you so much
 
Love,
 Mommy

Laidback weekend style : Vintage Floral


Hi lovelies ! One of my penchants for  this summer are florals with a vintage look . Bold bright florals and graphic prints are going to be big this season. I have seen them a lot everywhere now . So to join in the floral bandwagon, Im wearing this vintage floral shorts with a lace embellishments on the sides ,you cant go wrong by pairing it with lace sheer shirt. This is my  " mommy uniform" this summer season. When I tag a long my kids anywhere, I have to stay as comfortable as possible. So  I opted for loose clothing and flat heeled soles. Im big a fan of loose button down shirt ,  as a mother of two, its my go to piece of clothing, aside from being comfortable, its trendy too, I just have to play around with colors and prints.
 
This post is also my ode to floral for Ifb project #94
