I was invited to the 18th birthday celebration of my EnLit(English/Literature) blockmate and friend, Shawntel. On birthday parties, I avoid dark colors as much as possible. I am one to believe that birthdays are happy occasions and must be celebrated with bright colors to bring out the happy vibes. As I have noticed, a lot of people today choose to wear what seems to be party clothes for me, taking into consideration the usual “after-party” where alcoholic drinks are available and dancing all night is the thing. Even with this on mind, the little kid inside me still urges me to wear something bright and colorful, which I associate with happiness. Nevertheless, black/white will always be the color of sophistication. For me, however, there are more occasions in which I can look sophisticated. On birthday celebrations, I’d like to bring out my inner kid party vibes where twirling my skirt is the aha-moment.
I’ve been checking out good color combinations lately and I honestly fell in love with the bright yellow + cobalt blue combination. This is the kind of combination that I consider ‘happy’ because it reminds me of a lot of things (i.e. summer, sunflowers, sun, beach etc)’.
What did I say about my skirt again? Right.
Top is actually my sister’s LOL
Here are a few photos from the event
