The Band and The Patched Knees


Woodland Faerie Turband - Pink Floyd Tee - Platform Knees Patched Leggings - Pull&Bear bag - Sequins Flats

Hi all beautiful people!!

How's your mid week? I really envy you guys who still breathing on the cold winter air.. Here in my country, all we have is just hot, super hot, and rainy. Nowadays the rain falls really hard for almost everyday. Seems like Bruno Mars was right, 'everyday it will rain' here.. :) This month actually predicted to have the 4-years-seasonal big flood in several cities near my capital. I just hope it doesn't happen.
Kei, now it's official. I'm going to start my new job on next Monday. It's a challenge I can say, coz my position is new to the company itself. But I'm really excited tho'. So wish me luck, guys! ;)

Last night, I watched Sex and The City 2 for the third times. This time I'm really interested on how life might be on a 30-ish girl (or women I should say). Well, thank God I'm still far from that number. :p But, I've once read a novel of such story about life and love at the age of 20 something, which is quite suits my current age. I am myself actually don't believe in young-marriage (below 27 yo). It's a good thing God give me mr.boyfriend who has the same age as I am. :p Even so, seeing many of my high school and college friends now already being married, and even some of them already have a child, it somehow gets me thinking about marriage itself. Moreover, some of us here in Asia will most likely to hear the parents asking us to be married as soon as possible, esp before a girl turn 25. Parents use to suggest that under 25 a girl is in the best (they mean pretty face and good skins) and productive (strong and fertile to bare child) state, and therefore it's best to be married at that age. So I've heard from my friends that their old-school parents even thinks that after 25 you'll get ugly and no man will marry you. Some more 'logical' parents giving us reasons to be married soon because of the fertility and the sake of the children. It then gets me thinking, should I be married soon before I turn old? Hm, I guess the novel was somehow right about money and marriage as the two things that circling around the head of 20 something girl.

But to think again further, the major thing at the age of 20 something is not really about those two, it's all about 'decision'. A decision, which often left on a short time for us to decide. A decision whether we should married or should we wait. A decision to take one job or another for our future. A decision whether we should quit dreaming or go for it. All in all is that we have one side to lose.

Now now, I'm getting so boring, don't I? Soo, back again for the outfit details. I wore my own handmade turbands, which is a new fall-winter color. Today's outfit was inspired by my boyfriend band-tees collection. I got the crazy comfortable patched leggings on last shopping spree and thought would be great to pair it with one of his tees. But apparently he doesn't have a tees long enough to cover my hips. So I bought the Pink Floyd tees on the store where he usually shop for the tees. Then, I couldn't get all boyish tho. You know me. There's always some girly things I should wear. ;) So I put on my sequins flats to complete the easy and comfortable look.

Thanks for all the comments and support left on this blog. Each makes me more passionate about blogging.#smooches

Until next post, toodles-doodles!!


  1. I think people shouldn't tell someone what to do when it comes to marriage because it really is only going to affect the people in the marriage. But, then if someone has opinions ad cares about the person its hard not to. :) I love the parrot ring. Parrots are my favorite bird. :)

  2. You look great:) love the look and the accessories! Follow you xxx

  3. Love that gorgeous leggins&rings!! The parrot one is amazing :) Thanks for commenting on my blog, now I'm following you!

  4. Oh that bag is so cute and I adore your acessories especially the ionew from your hair. I never knew that girls are forced, maybe that is too harsh but I can't think of another word to be married before 25, it's quite odd. I think sometimes of marriage but I am 21 and I still think of myself as if I am 18..

  5. Absolutely love your patched leggings!! And your jewelry is gorgeous too! <3

    P.S.: Thanks for dropping by my blog.....am following you too! :)

  6. I love the entire outfit esp the rust turban!! <3

  7. I'm going to be 25 soon, and I'm kind of freaking out :) haha. I feel like I'm getting old. Anyway, it's so cool to know that youre a christian too. I love meeting girls on the blog that love Jesus too... AND who also have great style ;) You look great dear. I especially love the headband :)

  8. Thank you for your comment on my blog :) I love your style :) Will follow you for sure! ...Now about this marriage and babies thing... do it when you're ready! And only you will know that :) I'm an old married lady at 27 and blissfully happy, but everyone is different!

  9. It's been raining an awful lot here in the Philippines too. I just hope it doesn't turn into a storm or something worse. And by the way, when it comes to marriage, I believe you should be sure that you are ready when you get into that and not just marry 'coz of the pressure of other people. I totally agree with you, it's all about decisions.

    Anyway, how do you make those turbans? They look really good. :D

  10. This is so cute!



  11. I love your shoes!

    About your post, I believe in spending your life to the fullest especially when you're still single. Having a family have lots of responsibilities and sacrifices. Plus, my parents always tell me to fulfill my dreams first. I think it's the best advice. :) <3

  13. Hello, Liz! I am so sure I left you a comment but for some reason it did not post. I just had extra time and I followed you back already. And I hear you! It's either sunny or rainy in my place too! :)

    And I understand what you mean with getting old and marrying. It's different with us here. Totally. I'm 25 and I still live with my folks. Gad. Talk about independence.

  18. I got married at 27. Yes, the physical part of it cannot be denied, but what's the point of rushing something that takes lots of thought, work and proper finances to do well? If you rush it, you could rush yourself towards divorce at a young age, too, because you didn't put enough time, energy and thought into the decision. Marriage and children take a lot of money and strategy, if you don't plan it out well, it could fail.

    I'm glad I didn't marry until both of us were financially, emotionally and romantically ready. It took us being together for more than 5 years, but it was worth it.

    I love this outfit. It's so cheeky.
