Mother Nature is quite a tease. Just when you think all is going to be right in the world, the weather turns nasty once again as spring ushers in not only the showers and the May flowers but the gust of strong winds and chilly temperature.
But – not one to be outdone by some natural world order – I bring thee a sneak peek into what summer will look like. Hopefully, this will bring a ray of sunshine to your day, just think of that gorgeous possibility! Just think of summer… when the living is easy.
A few weeks ago when I was on the other side of the world, where the sun was shining… in fact, the sun wouldn’t stop shining in the Philippines that there’s really not a lot of choice but to wear summer exclusive outfits like these colourful maxis!
We were out on a stroll in the city: running errands, eating out (Bob’s Cafe in Bacolod City), getting pampered at the spa (Cocoon at the rooftop of Le Chalet, L’Fisher Hotel) and just spending time with the family when we find ourselves in exactly the same #OOTD: summer maxis! How can you really go wrong with this outfit?

There’s a certain kind of chic-ness to such nonchalance in a maxi dress. It delivers a good dose of style with a maximum amount of comfort. How do you deliver major style with a maxi dress? With minimal accessories required, I chose to top mine with these beautiful Fan Fare Earrings from Lia Sophia and this city chic purse from Nella Bella by Tarek, which checks out supremely well in both form and function. I’ve been getting lots of compliments on this simple yet beautiful pairing, both on Instagram and in real life that I think this combination will make an appearance time and time again.
