One of the boys.

I know, I know. I'm 23, a working professional and I should be going around in more decent, respectable pieces with collars on them and everything. This outfit is EXACTLY what my dad hates seeing me in, but is too awkward to tell me that he ends up telling mom and resorts to not speaking to me for the next 15 minutes. :)) Let's just say, he wants me to dress as if I'm going to run into a client any moment soon. Nothing midriff, nothing backless, nothing with holes on them. (But Pa...) That weekend, it seemed like a fine day for a complete dress down. First, I was far from home. I gatecrashed CDO to surprise a friend for his birthday and these photos were taken on a boat back from our short side trip to Camiguin Island. And two, I was with my girlfriends and good old college friends. With purely adventure trips, long roadtrips and beach on our hazy itinerary, a rugged pair of shorts seemed like a great idea :))

Nothing spells "one of the boys" better than denim shorts, canvass shoes, and baseball caps. The only thing that probably kept me looking feminine was my cropped top in substitute for a muscle tee/ band shirt. I let my hair loose, wore a few gold bracelets to tone down the black ones, and pearl earrings to pull me more to the seaside She-side. White and bleached denim are some of my favorite palettes for a laid-back, fresh vacation look. The classic red cap, I think, gave it an interesting contrast.

I owe this quick outfit post to Buddy, for bearing the shame with me and taking photos of me in the barge and of course my trusty cellphone, my savior for random instagram moments that turn into poorly-documented-but ain't-so-bad-blog posts.

Cropped Top: Topshop
Denim Shorts: Blind Clothing
Cap (with pretty corny text I must admit): Penshoppe

Hope you like it! :)
Here are some photos from my trip!

Follow me on instagram, its honestly more updated! :) @kdawnsy
Most of these are Instagram pictures, my quick fix.

The 730AM surprise at our new fave place, Missy Bonbon in Limketkai Mall. Zhen came from 630 mass with his mom and when he saw all 9 of us at his breakfast place, his face was priceless! :)) Ours was, well, sabog. We came straight from a 12 hr boat ride.

The Team ;)
Day 1: So after the surprise and birthday breakfast, Birthday boy (photo above) wanted to go straight to Camiguin Island so off we went! :) We toured around the island. Night came and we were all so sticky so we checked in and finally got to bathe! In a hot spring! Sooo good.  :)

Day 2: White Island. This paradise is a boat ride away from Camiguin. It is what it is, an island that's all sand bar and nothing else. Paradise! They say it sinks in the evening. Oohhh. 

After this we went back to the hot spring resort, swam some more, ate seafood for lunch (again), dropped by Camiguin's famous "Viola's halo-halo" (Zhen's fave back then) and got in a barge headed back to CDO (where the outfit shot above was taken from). We spent another 2 hrs on the road, toured around CDO city some more after dinner and not later, fell fast asleep.

 Day 3: White Water Rafting! A CDO trip is never complete without one! :)
Riding Rapids. Rowing and getting wet. Drowning. Exhilirating! Probably the most exciting day of my non-sports-inclined life! :)) After this, we shopped for pasalubong and went home that night.

One lovely weekend indeed. Happy Birthday again, Zhenny! <3
