We prepared a surprise baby shower for one of my officemates, Krystal, who is already eight months pregnant. It’s a girl, folks! She’s expected to give birth this September so yep, so excited for a new baby girl in the Inquirer fam!

It was the birthday of my uncle who passed away just recently. Tito Yeng used to stay with us at home, perhaps about a year or so. He was a good music mentor and he had really been a good uncle to us. We really do miss him, especially our jamming moments. I know he’s already happy up there though. I know God‘s taking care of him. 🙂

We were in Laguna Bel-air the whole day doing BCBP stuff. It was a bonding moment with the BCBP fam and whew! I’m gonna see them again on the 29th!

Thank God for the families that He had given me. I’m beyond blessed to have these people in my life.

First of all, I would like to apologize for the low quality photo since I took this one all by myself (yes, self-timer it is, on HDR because our office is in low light). I haven’t posted an #OOTD post for a long time so I am keeping up a quick one since I’ve had #ootd realizations with this dress.

I bought this dress from F&F at Paseo De Santa Rosa (Laguna). I rarely like clothes in green shades, considering that I am morena and I might look like a tree, but this dress really caught me so much.

I have always thought that wearing knee-length skirts or dresses will make me look really short (I’m not tall, as in definitely NOT tall, FYI), but this dress proved me wrong. It looked like a tailored dress on me, and I love how the A-cut shape complimented my body edges and leg length. I paired it with a snake-skin styled brown belt, and my usual snake-skin styled two-inched heels office shoes which I bought from Milani at Landmark (Makati).

Now I know that with the right fit, mix-and-match and of course, confidence and comfort, a petite woman like me can actually rock a knee-length A-line dress. A good find indeed! 😉
