Weekend Wear: The Countdown Begins...

Is it just me? Or is it beginning to feel a LOT like Christmas???!!!

Everyone was talking about the Pacquiao vs. Dela Hoya boxing match and we knew watching it with delivery-pizza, pasta and soda were sure-balls to make the day tad boring. So Hubby, Baby, Nanny M and I went to the mall today to score some loot for ourselves...we thought the mall might be close to empty because everyone was probably glued to their TV screens in eager anticipation.

Upon reaching the mall, we were so surprised to see the parking lot almost FULL, and the resto's were jam-packed with people! We had lunch at an all-time favorite: Fish and Co., hubby and I always choose that place as a default when we can't think of anything that tickles our tummies. They had the Pacquiao-dela Hoya fight on their TV's and we stayed on to watch till the 4th round.

hubby bought new Nike SB's to add to his growing collection, my eagle eyes brought us to the watch stand and he bought biggie-Nike-watches for us both (heehee), I got some shoes (some = 3 pairs!), Baby got her new "beehbeeeeeh" Strawberry shortcake baby doll (with long legs..) and new squeaky patent mary janes... and Nanny M took an hour to hunt for her "Christmas shoes" (we gave her the budget and the freedom to look around for what she liked and hubby and I had to wait for 45 minutes for her to come up with the perfect pair! heehee... how funny!

Pardon my silly face... my outfit doesn't quite match the background... which is a Christmas tree. I look all summer-y sans the scarf, and Evergreens/Pines remind me of cold climates, but the weather that day was really humid. Being in an air conditioned room/place all day only helps as much.

The reason why I added the scarf was because my outer tank top was one size bigger than my usual size and it tended to stretch low, exposing too much skin... and that was the last thing I wanted in a MALL- a.k.a. a super crowded place. I loved the crochet detail on the back part of the salmon tank, but I wasn't able to take a picture of it.

And surprisingly, I walked around for 4 hours straight in my F21 peep-toes, with my toes complaining to a minimum. I love this pair... it reminds me so much of Christian Louboutin's. They gave me extra height, so I was walking around the mall like a giraffe... towering above the usual crowd height... I swear I might have freaked some people out! heeehee
