Sophisticated Semi-Casual

Mckinley Hills, Taguig City

Unexpected things happen in unexpected moments. Indeed.

Because last Saturday, September 24th, I experienced two new things – the other is planned and the other is the opposite. The former experience, which I will talk about in a different blog post, is my first ever blogging event experience. It was the BlogEx Manila 2016! There, I really learned a lot and got some tips on making the most of my blog. The second experience is the one I’m going to write about in this post. There’s nothing really new and special about it besides the fact that my uncle unexpectedly told us to stop by in the “Venice of the Philippines”, Mckinley Hill in Taguig City. It was my first time there and I didn’t really expect that there were so many people in there – most of them taking pictures, others just strolling around, some just quietly sitting in a corner. It was nice! Come to think of it, I really yearn to go to different places around the world including Venice and this was somehow a trial, somehow a peak into what’s out there that I still have yet to explore.

This is the Manila version of Venice. It’s breathtaking, isn’t it?

My Mom, along with my uncle, was kind enough to take some pictures of me knowing that I have a blog to maintain. Hahaha! It actually felt kind of weird that this time, I’m not the one asking someone to take pictures of me; they knew, they just knew where and when and how to take pictures of me. (Lol!) Thanks for the appreciated efforts, Mom and Tito Jo!

Just some behind the scenes! Lol!

So here is me feeling fab in the semi-casual getup that I chose to wear for BlogEx Manila. Looking for something to wear in a special event? A dress would do plus some nice wedges and don’t forget that nice-looking sling bag that’s matching with either your shoes, belt, or accessories. To make it more sophisticated, you can wear a leather jacket or a chic blazer, then you’re good to go!
