Cebu had been rather gloomy and colder the past few days. So i found myself finally wearing the trench coats i thrifted some six months ago. And at last people in the workplace didn't give me the scrutinizing second look for wearing boots as if it's a capital punishment crime to ever wear one. I proudly strutted my wintery outfit and gave the close minded senior employees clad in their summery jeans/shirt/sandals a dirty look for wearing such weather-inappropriate clothes. Ha! But behind the brave face i was secretly praying to the heavens that the erratic weather won't change its mind or else I'm gonna die of profused sweating should Mr.Sun decides to come out. hahaha

The other day we experienced massive flooding in Cebu and my heart goes out to all the school children trapped in their classrooms during the havoc. I am seriously praying that the rain would stop now so we can all go back to our regular lives. Cold weather is good but not this. 
Be safe everyone!

Do you have Accuweather in your phone? You can check the weather in a weekly, daily and hourly basis. That way, we can like PLAN PLAN PLAN for our outfits! Such an ingenius invention.

But really, loving the weather too. Ani pud sa Iligan. Cold breeze. Gives me the chance to layer. And I empathize with you with regards to those scrutinizing looks whenever one wears boots. Why can't be people here be more fashionable!
