as colorful as a peacock


disclaimer: pardon the puppy face on the last photo. i meant to show you my peacock feather earrings and my owl connector ring. can you believe each accessory are just below PHP 50.00?

as if it was intently scheduled by the heavens above, after raining for 2 weeks due to the la niña, the clouds cleared up and the sun came out to get ready for the festivities this weekend. 

we will be celebrating the feast of the sto. niño this weekend. (sto. niño, meaning the child jesus). the feast celebrates how us, filipinos who had Islamic and Pagan origins, were Christianized and accepted Roman Catholicism. the celebration is called the Sinulog and is celebrated with nine days of novena before the feast, a procession for the child jesus and the street dancing with the dancers and participants in bright and extravagant costumes, giant mascots and colorful parade floats. literally everyone able to walk will be out on the streets celebrating during the parade.   it is chaotic, what with the traffic and huge flux of people dancing, drinking and just having an awesome time but the celebration is definitely still something we look forward to every year as it is always a reason to get together with family and friends.

I absolutely love your skirt and boots. I have this thing for tightly pleated skirts, they always looks so pretty!

Ahhh, you look SO ADORABLE. I love the pleats on your skirt - they are SO perfect. And go so well with your earrings. Which are, by the way, TOTALLY AWESOME.

Have a great weekend with your family and friends! It sounds fabulous.

Where in Carbon do you get your blings? I went there once looking for accessories but I got lost/went in circles. Or I just don't know where to find them. Haha.
