My life these days has been anything but black and white, and yet my closet seems to be, especially since my recent first purchase at Nordstrom: a Topshop halter bikini in a black and white checkered print (check it out here). What I love most about the halter top is I can actually wear it as a top or at least show it off like I did in this look wearing a sheer blouse from H&M paired with my Cynthia Rowley silk jogger pants, and my favorite summer sandals from Forever 21. I wore this on another lovely weekend I spent in Texi's new home in Isabela. There we've been trying out all sorts of breakfasts places, on this weekend we went to Levain Bakery and had the greatest croissants I ever tasted, so I definitely recommend anyone trying the place for themselves. There are so many dining choices out here, that every weekend I stay I try something new, especially for breakfast or brunch. So expect a list of my recommendations here soon. Enjoy the pictures, you'll definitely want to try those croissants after seeing the last one!
