LAST BREEZY DAYS

DSC_0147DSC_0179  DSC_0151 DSC_0180

Taking every chance I get to play around with layering. January had the leftover breezy days from December and it will be missed. How to wear this Charlie May (locally distributed by the very stylish ladies at Tilda) wool knitted crop top in Manila when a) it’s too warm for the rest of the year and b) your abs aren’t ready to be exposed? This would be my solution. Shout out to Chicify for these easy and comfy pants I can’t seem to wear enough.

Happy weekend everyone! X

WHAT’S GOOD, 2017?

DSC_0056 DSC_0061 DSC_0086DSC_0080

A very belated Happy New Year! Well into January and I’m feeling ready to take on 2017 with a drink in hand.

I got this t-shirt as a Christmas present from one of my all time fashion idols. I’ve been wearing it so much and can’t wait to give it that aged black cotton look!

I’ve been told that I’m looking more and more ‘lady’ lately. I suppose it has something to do with the realization that I’m deep into my late twenties, I feel a tad bit silly wearing some things that I used to get away with (seriously this is not a fun thing to type down as I’m still partially in denial) but some things are here to stay forever like my ludicrous love for sneakers and wide pants, as well as my capricious tendencies when it comes to playing with the things in my closet. At the least, we/I will always have something to go back to, and that is the love and the religion of Black.

Now would also be a good time to say that this might be my last year on the blog. Ah well, it’s not goodbye forever- we’ll always have social media in one form or another <3 Cheers to 2017!

Happy weekend everyone!

02DEC2016 // SUN KISSED

dscf2757 dscf2766 dscf2769

As cliche as it sounds, I can’t express how obsessed I am with sunsets. This is part of the reason I love going to the beach~ it’s like the sun gives you a little kiss goodnight. Really needed this short getaway to recharge for the madness that is December! Can’t believe 2016 is finally coming to an end. Wishing everyone super fun holidays to come!

Ps. currently loving my blue tinted glasses (and searching restlessly for more colours !!)

17NOV2016 // MASUNGI

It was no fun trying (and failing) to sleep the night before a 3am call time, but seeing all the beauty and adventure that Masungi Georeserve had to offer made the lack of sleep totally worth it. I was initially stupefyingly nervous since I’m terrified of heights, but getting over that fear for a moment and going through the trail was an experience I’ll never forget (or repeat for a little while). Many experienced hikers would rate this as easy, or even luxurious- I personally enjoyed using clean toilets before and after the hike. Highly recommend!

Finding an outfit that is both good for performance and fashion was a challenge. Believe it or not, I never splurge on workout gear. So of course I went for the thing I actually hoard- bodysuits! It worked out perfectly, and with my girl Shayna’s look to match. Naturally, we had to do some twinning photos together ♡

28OCT2016 // EVERYDAY

dsc_0094 dsc_0111 dsc_0122 dsc_0130

This is me for about four days of the week. I change up the pants to long shorts or the top to a t-shirt when I can be a little more casual and when it gets too hot out. The other three days are wild card days. Working in a restaurant has highlighted the importance of wearing natural fibers- it’s just too damn hot with anything else! My challenge for the following week would be to wear non-sneaker footwear, just to remind myself that I do have those options ha ha

Happy weekend everyone! X

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
