{ Leggings, Wedge, and ALDO kind of day }

It was raining pretty good yesterday when hubby and I started our road trip to Connecticut. Although I know I will be sitting in the car for two hours, I decided to wear warm yet comfortable clothes. I went for skinny leggings and green loose top then paired it with my favorite spring jacket. I finished the whole outfit with bangles, brown platform sandals wedge, and ALDO handbag.

{ ..that one Maxi Dress }

This dress is one of my favorite. I get to wear it during Spring or Summer. When it’s Spring time, I wear it with light jacket just like on this photo when hubby and I went to see the show “Stars on Ice”. Then I paired it with yellow designer inspired botany shoulder body bag and yellow flats. This maxi dress is definitely one for keeps. During summer I wear it just as it is. No need for lighter jacket whatsoever. You see, I don’t have all high-end branded handbags in the world so I use what I have in my closet. Sometimes, it doesn’t matter if it’s a brand name or not as long as it looks good on my overall look, I will go for it. Not everyone can afford to buy branded stuff, right? Hahah! :)

{ Road Trip: Destination >> Ogunquit, MAINE }

It’s that time of year again when hubby and I visits Ogunquit, ME. We love going there during this Spring time because it’s neither too cold nor hot. The view of the ocean is very peaceful to look at, it makes you feel relaxed. Although it’s not quite the time to get lobster because it’s not lobster season yet, it was still nice to go up there and enjoy the view. Since we moved to New England, Maine has always been our mini road trip destination every now and then. We never get tired of seeing the same view every year, it’s that beautiful. :)

{ Stars on Ice - 2014 Tour }

Hubby and I went to the Stars on Ice show Thursday night (4.17.14) to see the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team perform after their Sochi competition. It was AMAZING!!!!! My hands were sore from clapping all night long. I couldn’t believe I just saw them not long ago competing on TV and then there they are, in front me. Haha! I guess you can say I was a little star struck. Lol! :)

They’re all insanely good! I don’t know how they do it. Dancing on ice like that. Like they are not wearing figure skating blades at all!

{ The beautiful beach in Mozambique }

Being in South Africa is definitely one of the interesting and unforgettable memories that I will treasure forever. When hubby and I were there, we tried to visit places like Mozambique if possible. After all, it’s not all the time we get a chance to visit this side of the globe. It was May so the weather was pretty hot. Going to the beach with friends for three days and two nights was perfect. The road trip from where we used to live (Pretoria) to Mozambique was about nine hours’ drive. Before entering Mozambique, we stopped at the border line to get tourist visa. It probably took about one hour to get our entire passports stamp one by one. There were nine of us. Fortunately, we didn’t encounter any major problems during the process. :)

{ One Dress. Three different occasions. }

It’s amazing how one dress can be worn multiple times in different occasions. This dress is exactly like that. I bought this dress at Amazon because the color is just pretty and very girly. When it arrived there’s a brochure included inside the package from PacSun. At first I didn’t know what or who PacSun was so I searched them on line. Turns out, they have been producing wonderful and good quality products like this dress for over 30 years now.

The first time I wore this dress was in Las Vegas on my birthday (pic below). I couldn’t wait to show it off. Lol! It’s very flattering and shows off my curves (not that I have the Coca-Cola curves) Haha. Paired it with brown high heels and Coach shoulder bag.

{ Bring out those Spring Colors }

This was my first time visiting the King’s hometown. The weather was perfect so I decided to wear this beautiful, very colorful skirt that my sister gave me. All night I was thinking what to pair it with, so the next morning I tried different tops that I could think off that will go well with this skirt. Finally, I decided to go with a plain white top. I figured I can never go wrong with a white top, and tadahhhh.. it was perfect. :)
