Silver Linings

I may be an only child but, like most Filipinos, I have quite a huge extended family on both my parent's sides that I look forward to seeing especially around the holidays when we all get together and eat, drink, exchange gifts, and be very merry. Yes, I am four months away from my 21st birthday but I still look forward to Christmas and Christmas presents like a wide-eyed four year old.



Family gatherings, particularly during the holidays, is also a time when everyone wears their Sunday best which is all good because it's pretty much how your relatives will remember you until they see you again at the next reunion. 




For this year, I've lined up a few special outfits to wear to these reunions. The first one features this simple but elegant silvery blue dress, which I've had in my closet for quite some time now just waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it to.



Worn with silver shoes and accessories, it is transformed into the perfect holiday outfit.




It's a departure from the usual Christmas colors but I think it's festive in a cool kind of way.

Outfit details:
Dress, TOPSHOP
Shoes, ALDO
Pearl earrings, CHANEL
