Sea Frolic

Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and start to this new year, like I did. I know I’ve been pretty silent ootd-wise the past month, so I’m beginning my 2014 post with this outfit I wore on Christmas day at my mom’s hometown. If you follow me on Instagram though, I know you’ve seen this dress, which I also wore at my cousin’s wedding at Fernwood Gardens. My December was filled with family gatherings and traveling so I didn’t have a chance to blog properly, but I sure did enjoy the time I spent with my family and friends.

Every Christmas day, it has become some sort of a family tradition that we all (and by all I mean with the whole extended family) gather around and exchange gifts. So my mom, sister, and I traveled to Tinambac for the event. When I and my siblings were kids, we always looked forward to Christmas Day because it’s the only time we get to receive presents. My aunts and uncles are the kindest and most generous people I know, they never forgot about us during holidays like this. But now that most of us have grown up and have jobs, we’re now the ones in charge of giving gifts to the younger generation:

My very cute, toothless cousins’ twinkling eyes and wide smiles when they got their presents were priceless. My sister and I were flat broke after, but it didn’t matter knowing that we made the children’s Christmas memorable. After all, giving is the true meaning of Christmas.

Before sunset, we decided to go to the beach, which was only 5 minutes away. It’s been a while since we last visited the place. I had fond memories of that beach, back when it was still clean and regularly maintained. Right now it only serves as port for fishermen’s boats so you’ll see lots of garbage lying around. 🙁

Good thing we found a clean spot for outfit photos! Please excuse the eyebags and unkempt hair. I told you my schedule was heeeectic I didn’t even have enough time to sleep and comb my hair. Lol

Thanks to my sister for taking my photos and to my makulit cousin and mom for assisting us. Some dog pissed on a bag containing my belongings while we were shooting and next thing I knew my mom was chasing the dog. Lol. I seriously love the fact that my mother is very supportive of me. I know she’s already very confused of what I want to do with my life but she never complains. I love you, mom! 🙂

Sunset at the beach is the most wonderful thing in the world, don’t you think?

The rainy month has arrived but it doesn’t mean we won’t have any more sunny days and beach adventures. And what could be the most perfect outfit for those but a colorful maxi dress!

Since I discovered here that maxi dresses are not just for the statuesque ones, I began to confidently pull them off (or I’d like to think so).
