Merry Christmas from The Budget Fashion Seeker!

December 29, 2016

Merry Christmas everyone! I know this is a bit late, but I wanted to post something prior to the holiday. How is everybody? I do hope that you all had fun times and lots of memories with your loved ones. This is actually the first time that I was not in the Philippines for Christmas. I miss my family and my friends so much already! But this is one of those things that I have to deal given that I chose to focus on my personal happiness this time. Don't get me wrong as the holiday is still great of me. I spent it with the love of my life and able to have dinner with his family on Christmas Eve. We just plan on creating more memories to compensate what I will be missing back home.

Anyway, to my frequent readers, I am pretty sure that you remember this dress from this post. It was Christmas of 2014 when I first wore this lovely dress from SM Girls' Teens Wear. I wanted to just be comfortable all day while celebrating the occasions with my loved ones, especially in our area, Christmas means entire day of eating and drinking. I matched my accessories with the colors that are on the dress, hence the green sling bag from Nine West, sunglasses from Forever 21, and earrings from Vente Shop. I made the overall look more comfy by wearing my flats from Payless Shoe Source. By the way, this dress is below Php500.00, totally Budget Fashion Seeker approved!

Two more days and we are done with 2016! It has been a tremendously memorable year so far and I am trying to appreciate every little thing that comes my way. I am hoping and praying for more blessed year this coming 2017. And I am wishing all of you the same thing. Have a great day!

It's Officially Winter (And My First Snow Experience)!

December 21, 2016

 The Budget Fashion Seeker - It's Officially Winter  (And My First Snow Experience)
Being born in a tropical country, I have always been curious and interested to experience winter. I love how it looks on photos and in movies, especially when they highlight Christmas time. I am in awe of how magical a place looks with white snow all over. My only major concern: I easily get cold since i got a bit older.

It was November last year when I had a chance to experience snow for the first time. And that moment became more memorable given that I was with a special someone. It was during our road trip to Lake Dillon, Colorado, a place that we love visiting if we want to be away from the city. As you can see at the photo above, I am totally unprepared that time. I knew Colorado weather is colder than usual but during my visit, I only packed Fall-friendly clothes ( it was mid November). The road trip was also unplanned but all in all, I had a great time and the view of the mountain is breathtaking! Certainly one of the things that I love in this state. I have only tried snow tubing so far (which I will share on this blog soon), but we are talking about skiing or snowboarding this time around. And I hope eventually, I will be able to post more winter-appropriate outfit photos that are of course Budget Seeker approved! Too bad it is not evident in the photo but the fleece hoodie that I was wearing that time is super fluffy. I love how it feels when I wear them. I am now wishing I still brought it with me this year.
Are you all done with your holiday preparation? Hope you are enjoying the season so far (Christmas is in few days!) and I will talk to you guys again. Have a great day!
