Verde Menta, Menthe, Mint

Friday, March 28, 2014

My love for Pastels will never die. It must be the subtlety of the color that grips me, the serenity and innocence it represents. The colors are soothing to the eyes, fresh and never overwhelming. It seems to reflect a happy life - laughter, smiles, affection. The simple joys seem to be highlighted by these pastel colors. I am drawn to them - infinitely. 



I am not the happiest nor the most cheerful person on the planet. Heck, I have my dark days but I wouldn't go for too much dark colors in any way. With my fashion style, I'd choose pastel and floral anytime. Like I said, I am drawn to those. I just think that it's the best trend there is. For me, it never goes out of style - you can always find ways to play with it. I believe that wearing such subtle colors in my outfit brighten my day and my outlook in life. I feel more confident and my feelings are elevated.


In today's fashion entry, I have the honor to wear one of my favorite pastel colors - MINT. The dress is from Forever21 and I got it from a recent trip to Cebu. The moment I saw the color and the cut of the dress, I just knew I had to lay my hands on it. I definitely have no regrets! The fabric is high-quality and thick as well as stretchy and the cut shows a little hint of sexy-back - perfect for those who aren't too keen on showing too much flesh.


The photos were taken at Lantaka Hotel by the Sea. My superfriend, Yuri, took these amazing photos for me. It was a weekend and both had no work so we spent the time taking photos, eating the hotel's amazing food and breathing in sea breeze. That is indeed a perfect day to start the weekend right.
