Happy Monthsary!

It's been exactly a month today since I got operated on so happy monthsary to me!!! No seriously, I got the scare of my life when I learned that I needed to undergo surgery asap. Dreaded thoughts such as having unsuccessful procedure, post-op complications, scalpel left accidentally in my inside, anaesthesia overdose, and other stuff. I am not ready to leave, so I told myself. Luis is just 9! I guess I wouldn't be ready even if he's 90!

Anyway, I needed to see my surgeon two weeks after for a post-op check-up. Although to me it's more than post-op check-up. What I was so anxious about was to know if I could get back living a normal life again which, simply means eating what I used to enjoy eating no matter how unhealthy and go back to exercising and my regular physical activity. Oh don't get me wrong. I am not a gym person nor too conscious about weight gains and stuff. My physical activities could be summed up to climbing the stairs at home because my room is on the 2nd floor, carry my own bags when I go to work which is too heavy for some (papsie carried my bag and drives me to and from work for 3 straight weeks by the way - the perks, lol), a little stretching when I wake up in the morning, and a 10-minute pre-bath exercise at night. That's about it. Pretty bad huh! As I expected, it was a big 'no' from my surgeon, at least not in six weeks!  

OK let's get on with my look here. It's not much, to be honest. I just wanted to be back because I badly missed doing this. What to expect after having the surgery just 4 weeks ago and a month of sedentary life? You guessed it right! It's pretty hard to look 'ok'. That is why I was so happy to find this relax fitting summer dress. Not only that I got it on sale, but more so because the dress hides what needs to be hidden (although still not perfectly) lol. The length and color I so love also, and the print - so summery.

This is it for now. Exercise and stay healthy!

Slouchy Saturday

It's a Saturday wth! *lol* I decided i will stay out of my alley for a day and go for one slouchy street style look. A harem with drawstring waist and banded bottoms is it! And what's the most radical top to pair this pair of pants with? the coolest teenage mutant ninja turtles shirt! *lol

Is it just me? or have you noticed slouchy pants suddenly becoming chic even outside of the gym? How they offer such quirky alternative to the skinny pants (which is seemingly everywhere) hands down. They make you feel relax and breathe more (LOL) without looking well, slouchy at all! (with proper styling that is)
Another good thing about this pair of pants is that they have such cool and androgynous vibe which makes you want to wear them anytime. Imagine how you can easily dress them up or down! Ballet flats and a girly top on a Sunday mass, Chucks and a statement shirt in going to the gym, or a pair of heels with a sequined top on a Friday night. Possibilities are endless!
Get out of your comfort zone and try this ultimate weekend wardrobe. You'll be surprised at how this slouchy pants can make you stand tall.
