What I Wore | Turtle Neck Top & Maxi Skirt

Sunday, September 27, 2015





Happy weekend everyone!
Just celebrated my 30th birthday yesterday. Since few days ago until now I'm having mixed emotions... I didn't expect I'd feel this way. This must be what they say 30th blues... One more birthday and I'm out of the calendar... :D 
I usually don't make fuss on my birthdays, in fact I don't celebrate it. Growing up, I have never ever experience having a birthday party, most of the time this day just past by like most ordinary days. I appreciate few people who remember this day without any notifications from Facebook. Call it overacting but its the main reason I turned off my Facebook birthday notification so that I will know who genuinely remembers me on this day. Since I turned it off I did see a big difference, only a handful remembers my birthday. Only the closest of the closest, even the relatives and friends whom I've expected to remember didn't remember until they see others greeted me. Yes I know, I am such a sentimental person. ^_^
Anyways, on to my outfit... I am wearing my fave turtle neck top. I just love the cloth of this top which matches very well with my new maxi skirt from LightintheBox.com. This combo just scream comfort!
I have been eyeing this maxi skirt for quite a long time already from other online store but only this time I finally have it. It was so worth it. Its not thick and not too thin, very flowy and comfortable. 
Tip: Its sold in one size only and its a bit too tight on my waistline, I'm size 28 by the way. So just a heads up to anyone interested on this skirt. 
The aztec duffle bag is my another new fave. I bought it at SM Department Store at a sale price last month.  I really like it because I can put everything on it. Perfect when I work outside coz my 15" laptop fits on it. 
Lastly, the dream catcher necklace... I bought it when we went to Bohol last summer.
What do you think about this look?
Have you tried online shopping at LightintheBox.com?

  17. I really love the necklace that you paired with this outfit. The whole time I was scrolling I was trying to figure out if it was part of the shirt. The gold detail is a win in my book!

  21. OMG you don't look a day over 21! Seriously! I'm turning that awful number in January and already having anxiety over it. I don't want to be 30 just yet but I decided that if I have to be then I want to turn it in Vegas. Somewhere VERY far away from home. Hopefully it'll take those woes away.

  22. Just by watching your photos, I suddenly feel the guts to wear turtle neck tops. Huhu why you all look so nice with that? Haha and also the Maxi Skirt. Ugh I always feel not tall enough to wear that huhu. But yeah, you look so good!

    1. Hi Lou! Turtle necks are my faves. Im not tall but I seriously didnt think of my short height when wearing maxi skirts. All I think is that i love to wear it and thats probably thats what you see when I wear it.
      If you like the style and comfortable with it, go for it. Its all about confidence and how you bring it that matters. ;)

  29. Happy Belated Birthday! It's definitely one of those birthdays to reflect upon. :)

    And I'm loving you in this turtleneck top, I've been loving the turtleneck trend lately (which is funny since I hated them so much as a child).

  35. Happy belated birthday my maxi skirt goddess! I am sorry to have missed this special day of yours. I understand the turning off FB to see who really actually remembers/cares/makes the effort. 30 looks excellent on you and I hope you start celebrating each new age as an achievement. It's not self centered, it's saying hey I made it through that year, a cause for celebrating! Also, check out my latest blog post as you are mentioned in it. I am SO sorry it took me so long to get it all together!

    XOXO

  37. Aw, Happy 30th Birthday, Venus! I don't celebrate birthdays at all, too, but I think when you reach a milestone age, a birthday celebration is well deserved!

    Loving your top; I need to get a sleeveless turtleneck ASAP!
