07OCT2016 // JUMP(SUIT)ING IN THE RAIN

dsc_0016 dsc_0023 dsc_0030 dsc_0056 dsc_0071

Gloomy days call for photos taken in the (non pouring) rain. Been living under a rock/ in this jumpsuit except for the times I’ve had to use the ladies room. I’m surprised at the number of ways to style it thanks to its amount of detail, y’all know how much I love versatility ❥ Exhibit B (since this post was Exhibit A!): wore it to the Sunnies Specs party a few months ago without the arms.

Have a great weekend! X

23SEP2016 // SHADOW PLAY

Man, it’s been a while. I’ve been crazy busy with restaurant things- it feels so good to finally take a break ♡ Had a bit of fun playing with the tree shadows while taking these photos.

This look is my little answer to this very hot day. This, and an iced latte (not pictured). Really excited to be wearing my granny trainers, as I call them, they’re super comfy because the insoles are made of memory foam (what?!?!). I predict them to be my new staples.

Happy weekend everyone! And happy fashion weeks!! So excited xx

26AUG2016 // CONTRASTING VIBES

DSC_0004 DSC_0003DSC_0011 DSC_0015

Really messed around with my closet today, contrasting vibes and textures with a laid back androgynous look from the relaxed t-shirt and slim trousers, and very feminine touches from the silk balloony top and the velvety heels. I’m all about that contrast anyways.

Happy weekend everyone! xx

19AUG2016 // BLEACH TOP

DSC_0033 DSC_0037DSC_0043

One of my favourite local brands, bleach, closed shop sometime last year. I know it’s been a year, and I haven’t gotten over it just yet. Anyway, that’s where this top is from. It’s a sleeveless printed top made with sweat fabric so it’s a little tricky to wear in Manila heat. Since it’s storm season, it’s just perfect for the (very) slight crisp in the air. Decided to go with the hip-hugging trumpet skirt to femme it up but of course dressing it down with some sneaks (I promise I’ll wear heels next week).

 

Happy weekend everyone! X

05AUG2016 // SLITTY IN BLACK

DSC_0004 DSC_0008 DSC_0030DSC_0037

Wearing a lot of black means having an obsession with details. Today i’m double slitting with my long top and pants. Always loving other extra details- the ribbing on the crew neck & sleeve, the pleating on the back, the airy crepe fabric of the top matching the flowy silk of the pant. All in all, a full comfort look of the day, topped with sneakers of course.

Happy weekend everyone! X

29JUL2016 // TEES UNDER EVERYTHING

DSC_0085DSC_0106 DSC_0091 DSC_0088

I’ve been really enjoying layering tees, tanks, and shirts under dresses and tops a little too much for three main reasons: 1) that I get cold so damn easily 2) it’s more appropriate for work and 3) it super maximizes the wardrobe. Layering in this tropical weather is pretty tricky and limited to thin fabrics as I really can’t wear any knit at the moment (too hot! maybe when it starts raining again) but also can’t wear bare slips when entering air conditioned rooms.. S/o to the 90s for showing us this trick.

BRB- layering for the next few days. Happy weekend everyone! X

22JUL2016 // FAVOURITE DENIM

DSC_0005 DSC_0037 DSC_0042 DSC_0055 DSC_0072

These photos were taken on an especially sicky day, hence the sunnies on a cloudy day (but yes I also love how my sunnies match my bag ha ha!). My lovely friends remind me to take a break from work and rest it out, but work always does get in the way!

On these difficult days I find that I’ve been reaching for the cozy denim I’ve lovingly worn and softened out. These are my ultimate favourites from the mens line of Acne Studios. Get a couple colours and you are set for life.

Styled with other faves, la bathrobe jacket and linen tee for extra warmth and comfort <3

Happy weekend everyone!

15JUL2016 // GREY MATTERS

DSC_0125DSC_0132 DSC_0141DSC_0165 DSC_0173 copy

My love for camouflage prints are a little evident since this is my second consecutive post wearing it. Found this muted grey/black one which is super perfect for me. Extra layers added via the tailored vest to add some dimension to the look. As I’ve gotten older, I notice every dress I have been purchasing has been longer than usual. Is it an age thing or a style thing? Stay tuned as even I have yet to find out.

 

Happy weekend! X

24JUN2016 // FORMAL IN SPECS

DSC_0046 DSC_0022 DSC_0013

Sunnies Specs

Went to a lovely friend’s very stylish wedding recently. I love getting to wear black to a wedding (since the majority of weddings I’ve attended are Chinese, black is a no-no!), and really excited that I had an excuse to wear this outfit. I’m especially loving that I found the perfect specs for all occasions, including formal events, and one I’m proud to have worked on together with the Sunnies team ♡♡♡
