Summer sandals from Stradivarius

Yesterday I read Lourd De Veyra's blog post about his thoughts on the Filipino Holy Week. He made a lot of relevant points, but what spoke to me the most is his introduction of the "bliss station". It's "a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don't know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don't know who your friends are, you don't know what you owe anybody, you don't know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be."

I didn't know it until yesterday but apparently my bliss station is where I lay out all my painting and drawing materials on the dining table. It's the part of my day where I don't care about anything else except creating something and exploring what I can do with what I know about painting (so far). ^_^ What or where is your bliss station? Will you be doing more of it this long weekend?


Anyway I just want to quickly show you something I purchased recently: these white blocky sandals from Stradivarius! I love shopping there, I swear. I originally didn't want to buy these since they were all-white and therefore easy to mess up, but I love the soft straps, and high yet comfortable rubber platforms.

And oh, cocaine white (which is btw a color, apparently) is a hot trend this year. I do love wearing white. In measured doses of course.


And here I am wearing these over the weekend. I just have old clothes on here but that's why I'd rather pay more for bags and shoes - they look current, even after years have passed.

Will try to feature these sandals in a proper #OOTD soon!
