If you're following me on Twitter, you've probably seen at least a tweet of mine ranting random stuff about my high school. I'm attached to it like that! That's why I grabbed the opportunity last Saturday to visit my alma mater on their Family Day. Finally, familiar and friendly faces! Though not a student there anymore and it wasn't a regular school day, and being the not-really-obedient CICian that I am, I still made sure to follow the proper dress code of my school, no shorts, no flip flops and no sleeveless clothes.
I knew it would be scorching hot as usual and there would be a lot of moving around. Since I can't wear anything fancy or over-the-top, I spiced up the shirt-and-jeans combo! I carefully chose what to wear or what to mix with what. Key piece of this outfit? THE CARPE DIEM shirt! Am I cool now? HAHA. Of all my colored jeans, I chose yellow for the reasons: (1) Though not obvious and not really significant with the whole outfit at all, yellow compliments with color blue. Yup, my shirt's color is blue :D (2) I would be going to a really happy and gay event and what other colour is more lively and fun than a screaming yellow? :) (3) I'd like to relive that moment and feeling where I'm still a high school Senior. In my school, yellow represents the Seniors :)
Since I wanted to give the attention my Carpe Diem shirt deserves, I opted not to wear any necklace when I accessorised. It's also unusual for me to carry clutches instead of my hand or shoulder bags because of the size plus I've mentioned before that I like having many abubuts in my bag which "I think" are necessary. =)) For me, clutches are made for formal or intimate events. In fact, the reason why I took this with me in such a casual event is only because of its print. =)) But hey, I think I suddenly felt like I want more of em in my closet! And I mean it! :) It's just another situation where I tried something new (at least for me) and at the same time surprised myself in a good way :)
Another thing intended to spice up my usual outfit and another first for me is this bowler hat. I finally had that guts to don a hat which I obviously not usually wear. Bowler hat instead of a fedora hat, what do you think? :)
