the bench

"I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her." 
"I live in Notting Hill. You live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name."

BSX sleeveless black cardigan, GAP striped tube top, Old Navy shorts (all thrifted)
studded flats - Greenhills


These benches remind me of my favorite romantic movie - Notting Hill. I know most of you have seen this flick. I still watch it over and over again. And those lines above are a few of my favorites. 

On the other note, I realized I've been wearing shorts very often this summer. It's so comfortable and ready to wear. I know I don't have those long legs (how I wish) but that doesn't hinder me from wearing shorts (bagag nawong.haha). Bakit ba, ang init eh!haha. I'm planning to thrift more shorts because I only have 3 shorts worn repeatedly. haha

How about you guys, what's your favorite outfit for summer?

I love Notting Hill! And I agree that those benches quite remind me of them.

So important to be chic BUT also be comfy now. We dont want to be dying of heat stroke. You look so cool in your outfit :)
