Last Day Of Summer

Technically, summer was long over since heavy rains have been often lately but today is the last day of my vacation and my outfit choices seem to be welcoming summer all over again. The frustrated skater girl inside me is showing. My summer was definitely not a blast. Couch potato, all day, every day. But it gave me the chance to catch up on my favorite series and have a music genre intervention. Recently, I basically wiped out half of my playlist and replaced it with song by The XX, Passion Pit, Bastille, The Temper Trap and many more indie rock bands all thanks to my latest discovery, 8tracks. 
Anyways, I will be going back to school tomorrow as a sophomore, exciting but not really. I'm really bummed that I don't get to be with my friends for half of my classes *cue tears*. I am still hoping for a great semester though. Wish me luck on my first day tomorrow!

The Countryside

Vintage denim jacket | Floral mini from Landmark | Boots from Aldo

To wrap up my not-so-summer vacation, we went on a roadtrip to Tagaytay to take a walk on the countryside. I was kind of hesitant of wearing an oversized denim jacket but the thought of a breezy Tagaytay spirals in my mind. Let me tell you this, I should have gone with my hesitation. With the obvious rays of sunlight perfectly hitting my face (as shown in the pictures above), it was a sunny day in Tagaytay. It wasn't a total hassle though, I knew precautions had to be taken so I just had to wear a floral sundress underneath. But then again, it was NOT a good idea as my "frustrated equestrian self" lures herself into riding horses. In the end I felt like it wasn't a roadtrip at all, I feel like we went on a food trip instead as we venture restaurant after restaurant. Still, it was a productive day, I even got to check out Nuvali in Laguna. The man-made wake park was such a sight to see. 

Here's a video diary of my short but sweet adventure:
