Summer Romance

There’s no such thing as summer breeze here in the Philippines. Whoever coined the term clearly hasn’t experienced our hot hot hot summer here. (I just had to say “hot” 3 times to make sure I get my point across. LOL!) I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling the intense heat these past few days. To make it even worse, our weather has been so schizo. Thunderstorms one minute, scorching hot sunny weather the next.

The day I wore this floral number, it was sunny all the way. But you see, I have trust issues with the weather. It has been known to fail me from time to time. And you know what they say–once trust is lost, it’s hard to get it back… So the weather and I, we’re working on it. LOL! For now, I still need my warm fuzzy cardigan to protect me from the weather’s schizo tendencies. Ayoko magka-kabag!

Not that there was a whiff of wind at all that day to give me a kabag. You see this wind underneath my skirt? That’s all me. I twirled and swinged like there’s no tomorrow to show my pretty skirt off to all of you. Gee, no thanks wind.

This is another reason why I had to wear a cardigan over my top. It’s got a sexy back!

Cropped tops paired with maxi skirts are always so romantic and a little bohemian. To stay true to that vibe, I styled my hair in a loose braid and opted for long thin strands of necklaces. Styling my outfit this way made me look more carefree which is really the key to bohemian dressing.

        SM Dept. Store? Sige, I’ll try. :) By the way, I’m choosing lipstick shades for a fair-skinned girl like me, MAC Coral Bliss or MAC Shy Girl? Then, which is your favorite lipglass/lippie sa Archie Collection bukod sa Betty Bright and Ronnie Red? Thanks! :)

          Betty Bright talaga eh. I like the matching lipglosses as well. I’ve never tried Coral Bliss and Shy Girl though. :)

    Super Duper Like. The whole outfit looks amazing; sexy crop top, maxi skirt, flower ring, Chloe Saddle bag, hair…just perfect.

    The weather is the same. Its suppose to be spring but its freezing cold. One min its raining, the next it’s snowing.

    Hi there, Ms Camille! It’s been a while since I leave comment here.. but of course I did read all your post.. just lazy to leave comment.. haha.. I can totally feel you about the hot weather.. because it’s been super hot here in Malaysia for these past few weeks and it’s so hard for the sky to rain.. haha.. but it did rain for the past night.. so, thank God for that!! anyway, i should stop about the weather rant.. haha..
    Back to your outfits.. I love your maxi skirt! Love the colour!! I love maxi skirt but i’m only height at 153cm.. I’m still afraid about looking short because maxi skirt is long.. any advice?

    Reply
    • itscamilleco

      Don’t be lazy! :) I love reading comments :) Ahhh, weather rants. We all have them! Haha! Anyway, re: maxi skirts– wear skirts that have less volume and come in straight silhouettes. :)

      • Christine Koay

        Hehe.. I’ll try my best leave comment in all your post.. =)
        haha.. but can’t complain if we’re living in a tropical country.. raining is consider good..
        Re: maxi skirt- i see.. so it’s advisable to not wear like yours, flowy one? instead choose the one with straight silhouette? but i love flowy one.. *sobs*

        Reply
        • itscamilleco

          Awww thanks Christine! :) It can still be flowy naman, just choose the ones with less gathering/shirring

          • Christine Koay

            =) you’re welcome! Oh i see.. just choose the one with less gathering with rubber one? Ok! Salamat for your advice!!

    Hey, I’ve followed your blog for ages and adore your style. I’m sorry but I want to point out that calling the weather ‘schizo’ is offensive and ignorant to the actual condition. I know very little but it is a common misconception that schizophrenia is characterized by having two different personalities or moods when in fact it has far more to do with hallucinations.

    Reply
    • itscamilleco

      Hi Suzi! I totally get where you’re coming from but I’m just using the urban term. It’s been used to define dramatic changes in weather so I hope you don’t take offense.

    Gorgeous skirt! So romantic kahit sunny yellow sya, hindi sya limited as a traditional summer skirt, you can still wear this kahit hindi na summer and that makes it super awesome! I love everything about this look! Speaking of which, you know naman how much I adore your looks and your fashion sense, that’s why I’m such a fan. I’m hoping that sana you can spare an extra time to check something that I did as a tribute :) The model here is my niece :) http://coltnava11.blogspot.com/2013/03/versions-camille-co.html Hope you’ll like it!
