Hometown Love


How much do you know your hometown? Have you ever been to all the good places there is in your city?I guess not everyone I know in my hometown has ever been to the Agusan river dike, here in Butuan City, and it is actually my first time to visit the place. I first saw this place from a photo of my friend Neng on her Instagram account, since she live very near the area. And I told her that I would visit the place one day and so that day came. Thank you so much Neng for the tour. Not only it is a very good location for an #OOTD photoshoot but it really has a great view, breezy air and surprisingly there was no one there last Sunday but just a bunch of kids playing far from where I was.

My pretty dress from SheIn was perfect for that sunny breezy Sunday afternoon. I think off-the-shoulder dresses flatters most body types, and this blue and white ย stripes is so simple yet it looks so chic. You can also pair this with some white sneakers for a more youthful casual look or some strappy heels for a more sophisticated look.

I also brought with me my hand painted”banig” bag from a local oil pastel artist of Butuan too, Maria Len. Every bag has different paintings, it’s like carrying your very own unique piece of art specially made for you. Will post a separate blog featuring Maria Len’s work soon.


Outfit details: Dress from SheIn available here, Bag from Maria Len, slides from Birkentock, Sunglasses from Linda Farrow.

Really enjoyed strolling along the area and watching the cars passing through the bridge and I was also happy to see a rainbow out that day too.

To my Butuan readers, if you are wondering how I got there, go to the end of Gomez street, you will see stairs leading to the dike. A warning though, please don’t go there when there’s a storm or typhoon coming as the water from the river can go as high as the dike. And if your planning to have a picnic there then please bring your own trash bag and do not litter around the area. Let’s keep our beautiful city CLEAN.

That’s it for today guys! Hope you like this post. Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!

Much Love,

Sheila ๐Ÿ’—
