Summer in Winter

December 22, 2011


That's how it felt like this afternoon when we took these photos. The sun was shining so bright despite the cold winds blowing, which explains my messy hair. But this isn't another post where I complain about the weather so, let's move on. I found this pair of leg warmers in my socks drawer and thought that they'd go perfectly with the ruffled cardigan I got from mom's shop. They're not the same shade of grey, and if you notice up close, the leg warmers' got some tiny color sprinklers going, like the ones you find on top of cakes. Those colors got me so I decided to wear them out today. Little did I know I'd be pulling them back up to stay put above my knees every two steps I take while I walked. It was such as hassle. Although I must say, for the pictures, they look pretty cool, don't you think? 

On another note, remember in a previous post I said I was gunna do some DIY projects inspired by the H&M dragon tattoo collection? Well, thought I'd show you guys one that I already did: the jacket that Penguin is wearing in the photo below (yes, it's a post on instagram). Actually it was his idea. I only did the execution - cutting, sewing, and those stuff. He asked me to take a photo of him wearing the jacket cos he wasn't confident enough about how it looked on him. I thought I'd ask you guys what are your thoughts?




Personally, I like the jacket a lot. In fact I'm going to make one for myself too, and that will be a DIY tutorial post. Hopefully it'll be up in this blog soon so... stay tuned! 

Cheers, Carla
