Pale Sunshine

Yesterday, I went on my first summer outing for the year. It was a lovely resort in Cavite, Philippines but it was more apparently intended for kids. If you’re looking for a place for your kids to enjoy at a very low price, this is the place to go. Qubo Qabana Resort and Hotel has a main pool with slides. The pool has a water level set at 4 feet max, good for those (above 4 feet) who don’t really know how to swim in deep waters (obviously). The resort also has another kiddie pool with mushroom falls, a few qubo cabana huts, a mini bar and grilling station. They also have hotel rooms and a private pool for their guests staying in. For more info, you may visit their site.

(Photos grabbed from the main site. I do not own the photos of the resort.)

Anyhow, as the sun’s rays have been intense as ever, I opted to wear something light (so I don’t get too hot under the sun) and something easy (and ready for swimming).

I’m wearing: Buttoned shirt (Folded & Hung), Black tank (SM Department Store), Board shorts (D Mall, Boracay), Aviator shades (Bench), Carryall Bag (Refill Men), Sportswatch (Timex), Flipflops (Havaianas)

I’ve always been drawn to these shades of white, kind of a bit lighter flesh tones. The red floral print in the board shorts grabs my attention. I got these pair of shorts a few months back when I went to Boracay for a late mid-year vacation.

And as you may see me often in, I took out my ever trusted black tank top and covered it with my (unbuttoned) buttoned shirt. I just adore the red lining on this shirt from Folded & Hung. It’s made of 100% light cotton so the fabric is so easy and comfy to wear on hot days like these.

I brought my another trusted piece of apparel, more like accessory, my aviator shades from Bench. We’ve been through a lot of trips together and they never fail me! 😉

Come back soon for more. I’ll be posting some of the other stuff we did at the resort soon. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the latest FU by CK.

AccessUrEyeS #1: Yellow Suede Shoes

Take out your thinking caps and open your eyes for style! I’m posting this challenge to myself and perhaps to anyone else who’s willing to take on this challenge.

Alright, this challenge basically demands you to Access Ur Eyes for Style to accessorize and come up with a look that cohesively matches the theme and style of the item posted. The item can either be a piece of apparel, shoes, accessories or whatever.

I thought it nice to do this so I can also be creative and practice my styling abilities.

Ok, for this first challenge, the item to dress up with is brought to us by Folded & Hung. This yellow suede shoes was released about a month ago and it really caught my attention as it was displayed in the boutique with its bright yellow aura. I had no choice but to try it on and buy it! I’ll definitely have fun playing dress up!
