Checkmate

110 Comments
I'm officially back to school!!! 2 weeks of vacation is over but I can say that so far this is the best sembreak that I had. Not only because I was able to go on adventures nor have more time with my blog. It's because I felt that I became closer to my family especially to my siblings. My sembreak was basically spent with my two younger brothers. I realized how fast time flies and that they aren't my baby brothers anymore. From having those silly conversations now we talk and share opinions about more serious matters. We talked about his love life! Could you believe that? My brother has a love life, take note- not a crush life while me, on the other hand, don't have anyone to talk about except for my high school crush who's still my crush until now. Haha! At least I'm faithful :P I'll tell you more of our adventures in my next post. :)
Can you still remember the challenge I'm up to- the neutral-monochrome styling? I'm still doing it! It's funny that for once in my life I get consistent in a dressing/styling challenge because I'm taking it seriously. Haha! For this look I opted to wear an outfit that defines my style-girly.  For my top, I chose to wear this turtle neck cropped top that I'm currently obsessed with. It was a perfect match for the humid weather during our whole day in Tagaytay. For the bottoms, I wore this black and white skirt which I got from Ma Shee Closet. From the three items that I got from this store (you can see the two items here) this skirt is my favorite. I was impressed with the quality and the texture plus the length is just perfect. I got if for only Php 475/ $10.15. If you want to get yours too check out MaShee Closet's instagram page (@masheecloset) or you can vibe them too.

  3. Shaira, this is such a beautiful look! I really love your plaid skirt. I am looking for something similar, but longer and made of wool, because it's almost winter in Canada:)
    Glad to hear that you had a nice vacation from school. Cannot wait to read your next post!

  16. You're right, time flies fast and I do miss my family. It's not easy being this far away for good but I really look forward to visiting next year. Brothers do grow up fast and I wish I have the opportunity to spend more time with mine.

  21. Your bag is so cute! And I love your skirt too. It's true that time flies, and children grow up so quickly - my brother is almost in secondary school, and when I think about him as a baby it makes me realise how quickly it all went. We have to enjoy the time we can have with our siblings to the fullest!

  48. The day when I talk to my brother about his love life oh gosh that will be so weird to think about. I love this outfit, those kinds of turtlenecks have become a closet staple for me and I love anything animal shaped so that bag ticks all the boxes hehe.
    Have a cosy weekend :)

  56. I'm not that much of a girly girl, but I'll wear this outfit anyday because of the colour palette and pieces you've chosen. I'd perhaps thrown on a moto jacket just to toughen things up a bit, but that's beside the point. You look lovely, Shaira, and I'm glad you had a lovely sem break.

    I had a crush on the same guy for three years straight once and that was in high school, too, haha. The person I'm with now has been a silent crush for two years. Ahh, us and crushes, eh? Have a lovely weekend!

  69. I know how fast time goes! It's strange, only today was I looking at photos of my niece Frankie from years ago, and she's a tiny baby in comparison to what she is now! So strange.

    I adore your outfit! Monochrome is such a nice style, and the best thing is that you can mix and match it up and your outfit will still all match!

    Can I ask where these were taken? They bring back a really holiday-y feel for me, and takes me back to when I spent a fortnight in Turkey.
