I wore keyboard drop earrings from Anak ng Kwek-kwek to add something quirky to this granny ensemble.
Ang cute di ba?

Wear more pants.

This is one of my resolutions this year. Wearing a lot of shorts, my legs got darker and more prone to scars and bumps. Ever since I slid back from regularly dancing, my intense training, work-out and body conditioning stopped and I started gaining weight. My huge thighs and muscular legs have become even bigger to the point that my brother would keep on calling my legs as "logs". :( (ouch, haha)

Urgh, depressing for any girl right? Though I couldn't fit in them anymore, I still kept my old pants, wishfully thinking that I would be able to wear them again. Though I seriously need to buy new ones now, I'm still psyching myself to exercise religiously in order to be more fit, loose my belly and regain my flat tummy.

Notice that these trousers totally make my legs look even larger (me even shorter). According to fashion rules, pear-shaped girls like me should stay away from high-waist pants because they tend to emphasize the thigh part. However, rules are made to be broken every now and then; plus, I love how these comfy pants let my legs breathe!

I paired them with my granny crochet top, the cheapest bowler hat ever, and basic black sneakers. Finally, after insisting that I wouldn't spend over P400 for a bowler hat, the elusive search for an affordable one came to an end thanks to SM Department Store (got it for P350)! It was the last pair on the rack and I knew I had to get it or else it would be lost forever.

  2. You don't look fat at all. Maybe you just gained some weight but I am sure you still have the body to wear shorts. :) Love the crochet top, by the way. I don't think I can wear one. Haha!
