Back in the Philippines, I could only imagine what sub-zero temperatures would actually be like. Being born and bred in the tropics, the coldest sensation I've ever felt was putting my hand in our freezer. Little did I know there were definitely places way, way colder than that. Michigan winters are known to be harsh, and every day is an exercise of patience against the elements, especially for a new import like me.

Though the weather has been really treacherous as of late, there's good days here and there where we don't have to bundle up everything in our closet to head out. Went out to Grand Rapids in the western side of the state to visit Gem and Clay (one of my two lovely sisters-in law and her hubs) and spend

the weekend with them. The 2015 Oscar-nominated shorts were playing in the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts for a limited time, so we figured the three-hour drive out to their city was worth it. Thankfully the weather was very "cooperative" that day, and I actually got to wear a tights-and-skirt combo out without getting frostbitten. I didn't really realize how schoolgirly this outfit would be until I wore it out, haha. But hey, I'm digging it.

Definitely missing the Philippines and its beautiful summer weather these days!
