Mock Tournaments

Haloo, halooo!

I´m still alive and kicking. ;) Sorry for the late update, life´s  a bit busy nowadays. Anyway, have you seen a live mock tournament set in the Middle Ages for real? You know those knights in full battle gear, jousts, lance throwing and swordfights. Well this afternoon I happened to have seen one and even if it was played by actors, everybody in the plaza had fun including  me. ;)

There were 5 main players (a woman included) and we were cheering and laughing while it was being re-enacted because the actors and actress were so funny. lol!

 I always find guys in horses kinda cute and romantic especially when dressed like those in the Middle Ages . Weird, no? Must be all those Barbara Cartland and historical romance novels that I´ve read when I was younger. haha! Anyway, here´s what I wore:

 jacket- Mango, sweater- Zara

scarf- local store bought in Córdoba, skinny jeans- very old, Bench (Phils.)

I can´t deny that autumn has landed  in here and it´s really cold and so it´s time to wear a scarf. You know, I hardly ever use a scarf because I feel like I´m being choked even if it´s loosely wrapped around my neck but it really adds warmth and pizzaz to the outfit and so I had no choice but to wear one. hahaha! :)

So how´s your weekend, dears? ;)



PS: Sorry for the poor photography, the camera´s dying on me while taking these photos specially the outfit.

Sounds like a fun event! And you look all wrapped up and cozy warm. Scarves really DO add a lot of warmth, maybe you can wrap them in a different way so it doesn't feel like choking?! :P

I LOVE scarves!!! They definitely add sophistication to an outfit. I used to not like them, too... but you can wear them in so many different ways. Horses are wonderful and kind of magical-looking. The first time I rode a horse when I was a kid, I kept crying because I was so scared!
