I LOVE THIS OUTFIT! There I screamed said it.

This summer heat is making me lazier than usual, so I skipped the shapewear and decided to let everything (lumps, bumps and all) just hang loose. And since our fickle-minded weather in Manila still hasn't decided whether to blast us with relentless heat waves or pelt us with sudden rain showers, I decided to bring a jacket for good measure.

You know about those things that you never thought you needed in your life until you had them? This dress, with its curve-skimming fabric and the see-through panels at the bottom, is one of them. After trying it out in the dressing room, I had to clamp my mouth to keep from squealing with joy! LOL. Both my mom and sister immediately gave it their enthusiastic nods of approval. And I'm telling you, that's uncommon for three ladies who have very different tastes in clothes.

What's your latest squeal-inducing shopping find?

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

    1. I feel like a bit of that rocker vibe is often found on my most favorite looks. I must have a rocker alter ego. Hehe

  13. I don't see any bumps or lumps! Other than your tush, and I think that's normal.

    I like the maxi look for summer too. On a short girl, it makes me feel so regal.
