Just Wanna Have FunThursday, March 21, 2013
What I'm wearing: stripe top bought in Bangkok • polka dot jacket vintage • shorts Canyon River Blues
I apologize for the lack of post for the past few days since I wasn't able to schedule some, experienced technical problems, and had a lot of family occasions to attend to. I'll be writing blog post bombs so watch out! Anyway, as it is evident on the colors and accessories I played with in this look, I think Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is appropriate to use as the title of this post. If you are a reader, you know that I love watching TV series and one of my current favorites is The Carrie Diaries. I was in the mood to wear something 80s inspired since it is a big trend again nowadays and of course, the influence of the very young Carrie Bradshaw.

I used two dominant neon colors to keep it still organize and cohesive. Plus, it is so much fun to play with accessories and colors.

Another thing that I enjoyed while creating this outfit is the combination of stripes and polka dots. It was a trend that I even thought was impossible but it works. I was able to risk a lot in this look, from the color palettes to the prints.
I was also able to do a death-defying stunt and took photos near the roof. I even stood up on the ledge which was nauseating and nerve-racking for me since I have a fear of heights. I easily shake whenever I am in a high place. But you know what? I've read it somewhere, maybe a quote from a book, to do something you are scared to do everyday and surprise yourself of new capabilities. And, this is what I did that day. Feeling I am on top of the world, smiling and posing like a pro when I am really shaking inside. Haha.
I told myself to just smile and have fun while taking the photos since I want to really have fun which is the main theme of this look. In short: illuminate, whether in style or with your smile. (Just a tagline I created while writing this. Haha.)
I also goofed, dance and jumped around. Letting go of all the stress and just had fun.
I hope you liked my highlighter outfit! *wink wink*
Oh and enjoy this song:
