HAPPY 114th INDEPENDENCE DAY to all Filipinos out there! 

Has it really been that long since Rizal, Bonifacio, and all our other heroes fought against foreign powers for our freedom? Yes, it has-which is why it's always such a celebration for us. Come to think of it, our country is very young when it comes to being independent and being on our own. To some people, they may feel like they're ashamed to be from here, but I am proud to be a Filipino. We are a strong and clever race who can survive almost anything we face, and although others make us feel inferior at times, we still find a way to stand out, be ourselves and put a smile on our faces. 

I don't know if you can tell, but I'm wearing an Independence Day outfit :)) my outfit consists of the colors of the Philippine Flag. My blue top, which is at the upper part of my body because it's in the upper part of the flag(which symbolizes freedom) is a sequined filled blouse. I chose this because I wanted blue to be the dominant color of the outfit because it is Independence Day and our focus is freedom(?) hahaha (I'm weird, i know!). I wore red for my shoes because [in our flag] it symbolizes war, which should be under or below freedom. I didn't know how to incorporate yellow in my outfit, so instead I wore a gold collar necklace, and ta-da! There goes my outfit :) 

comments are much appreciated.
