Hello, hello! My eyes are still a little bit droopy from staying up (and out) too late last night, but I woke up early this morning to get some work done and meet deadlines. Right now, I'm just taking a break and sharing with you a look I wore early this week when I accompanied my cousins to their gown fitting for the wedding tomorrow.

Since it was a laidback afternoon, I decided to go casual on this one. It has been raining quite frequently already. Is summer really over? How ironic that I've amassed a number of swimwear but barely had any use for them. And now that the rainy season is just around the corner, I want to be able to at least find use for the board shorts before the showers start to really kick in.


And yes, these are, in fact, board shorts. From afar, they simply look like one of those slouchy printed shorts (sometimes with drawstrings). It wasn't until I told my cousin that these were bought from the swimwear section that she knew what they were. That's the power of styling - you can create a look that is a bit different from what would have been expected from a piece of clothing. By pairing the shorts with a dressier top and sneakers, it became a casual piece that can be worn even without sand between your toes!


I didn't have a lot of out-of-town trips this summer because I've been so busy, but I'm hopeful that despite the lack of a sun-kissed skin this season, that I will still find some time to hit the beach maybe after August or September when the rains have stopped. For now, I will continue to close my eyes and quickly scroll past photos of my friends on their summer getaways to avoid feeling incredibly jealous (even though I already am).



Have you ever tried wearing board shorts while you're out and about in the city? :)
