STYLE | Mint Condition

How are you guys? How's was your halloween? hope it was great. While I am writing this post, I am simultaneously browsing different news in the web and chatting with one of my NFBB (new found blogger buddy).  We talked about anything in the sun ~ from fashion, to food to people. I realized then that it's really funny how social media has taken over our lives. I don't know if it is just only me. But from my observation (especially in Facebook), there are really a lot who use it to brag about what they have in life. (Like, do you really need to? This is why I try to stay away from facebook lately as it has slowly become a place for bragging already! ) I mean, it's really fun to share happy moments, new stuff that you have or places that you have been into with your friends and family but please do it moderately so that you would not appear as if you are bragging only! ( especially if you know for a fact that you have exaggerated some of it just to make it appear that you are filthy rich -  It's irritating you know...) 

Okay, I know that our "want" to aways look best in every situation or in every photo that we have is already innate in each of us- and there's nothing wrong with that.  In fact I could even relate this situation to my photos here. The photos may look that there's nothing going on. But did you know that I had several ant bites during the photo session. Tsk! I know, hassle right! But still, I tried my best not to get affected with the itchiness and pains just to appear good in the photos. 
Actually, it should always be that way- we should always put our best foot to always look our best, to always appear in mint condition in all the things that we do. 
However, we should always be true to ourselves. If I projected as if I am perfectly fine, that's because I'm doing it for a good photo shoot. But if we are to look at the situation on a personal note, it is so wrong to be pretending to be okay when you are not. It is so wrong to pretend that you bought those expensive items (again) even if it means that you will be in debt for the next century! haha! joke. But seriously, I hope that we could please try not to be somebody that we are not so we will not appear trying oh so hard. 

Let's all live within our means. Let's all be true. :) 


For this outfit post, I really love how the mint cropped top from RIPPLES fits to my "taba" body. hehe. The cropped top is made of a stretchable fabric which definitely hid my fats haha! While the puffy skirt from KAI'S perfectly hid my big hips. :) To the girls who also have my similar body type, you can try this look too. Toss some chunky necklace and hat to look chic.  I paired the outfit with the pretty black and gold strapped flats from SHOEZETTE which completed my look.

 I want how the mint perfectly matched the color black. A total contrast of the light and dark colors helped me achieve my hippie-chic look.  What to you guys think?
