Yesterday I woke up at 6am (to prepare hubby's breakfast) and noticed that the sky was still dark. This signals the end of summer and the onset of autumn. I was quite sad to see summer go=( This morning and up until afternoon, it just rained.

So today I decided to do a tribute for summer.

I used the same maxi dress during my preps for our wedding, so this has got to be one of the few dresses that I will never forget (aside from the fact that it was only $5! What a bargain!) Since Canberra has very erratic weather (you can have all 4 seasons in a day!), it is only but practical that I learn how to layer my clothes.

I topped the halter maxi dress with a knitted black cardigan which was ukay-bought (P50). The details on the cardi reminds me of the "bola-bola" (sticky/glutinous balls) in Ginataan. Isn't it cute? Like you have to resist the urge to pluck them out or something.

Summer my friend, most of the time you had been harsh but I will surely miss and long for you especially when winter sets in. Until next time...
