Everybody has his or her own definition of summer: some see summer as the perfect time to flaunt their flawless body curves on the tiny pearl sand of Boracay; while some take advantage of the break and start hunting for a peaceful place to give time for some rests.

Many people have discovered good hotels that are mostly located in the provinces; however, the travelling time that it can consume also affects the time that they should already be spending under the heat of sun. It is a fact that nothing beats the stunning view of the beach, but it is also a fact that not everyone can take the long drive. So why go out of town if you can still have a great time without experiencing the endless hours of travelling?

Just a few weeks ago, Seph and I filled up our two days with some quality time in one of the best hotels in the city, Best Western Antel Plus Hotel. To know more about Best Western Antel Plus Hotel, here is my previous blog post.

And of course, I cannot go a day without trying their swimming pool in my Cesa swimsuit!

What I’m wearing: Swimsuit from Cesa | Palazzo Pants from Stilesclothing | Sunnies from SM Accessories | Flip-flops from Havaianas

These Palazzo pants from Stilesclothing, inspired by the old-fashioned elephant pants, are once again knocking on the door of fashion trends, but this time it has a different story to offer. These pants are becoming more interesting because of the variety of fabrics that were used rather than the usual “maong” or denim. Because of this, ladies find it easy to include these pants on their summer ensembles, especially during their beach getaways, by just pairing them with chic swimsuit.

This swimsuit from Cesa pretty delineates the positive and jolly side of me. I playfully matched its colors with my Shoestringsattached Rastaclat bracelets and my ribbon headband from SM Accessories, which ended up having a bubblier look!
