Roots Before Branches

This was born out of nature. The print and color on my shorts reminded me of a tree’s trunk, roots and leaves, while my blouse had these beautiful warm-colored flowers that served as the basis for my shoe and bag color decision. I rarely do print-on-print but I quite like how this turned out!

It’s so easy to be inspired by nature since it’s all around us. Don’t the colors also remind you of santan flowers? As a little kid, I was so fascinated with them, especially when you find them in a row where they start as red but end in some sort of light yellow color.

My friends and I made santan necklaces after our classes ended. One day, out of curiosity, we tried the nectar out. The other kids did it too, so why not join the “fun”? Ever heard of someone dying from santan nectar?

Contrary to popular belief, it didn’t taste like anything. I know it’s so random that I’m talking about santan nectar in this post, but I was seriously tricked into putting something so incredibly random in my mouth. Scarred for life!
