Casa de Segunda

213 Comments

I've always loved exploring historical places that I've only got to read in books. Last Sunday I was given the opportunity to visit one when we strolled down town and saw the house of our national hero's first love. It was truly a love at first sight. The place is grand, the furnitures are well-preserved and every sight is truly one for the books. My favorite spots are the staircase and the master's bedroom. There are also a lot of portraits, interesting furnitures with labels like the violin, piano and the chess table where Rizal and Manuel Luz played. The dresses of Segunda Katigbak are displayed in the house too. It was a fun and at the same time a fulfilling experience to visit one of the Philippine historical site. I should probably visit more places like this in the next weeks. :)


Outfit: It's a coincidence that my outfit matched the shooting location. Haha! :) I chose to play a print on print outfit and wore the new additions to my closet. I liked the quality of this  long chiffon loose blouse from Newdress. The design is versatile enough to let me wear it in any occasions- walk tours, beach trips,  parties etc. Aside from the blouse I also got this Dog cartoon messenger bag from the same brand. I like that it's not only cute but also fits all the essentials like my tablet, notebook, phone and wallet.
