Wore casual summer brights and shiny gold accents on that one sunny day before the typhoon came. I haven’t done print on print in so long, but I’ve always loved the effect of pairing stripes and florals together! Makes for a fun, youthful look.
Thanks to Swedish watch brand TRIWA for my new favorite sunnies and watch! I don’t accessorize heavily, but when I do, I make sure I throw in a classy watch that can double as both an accessory and as a functional timepiece.
Navy is the definitely the new black. Blue has always been my favorite color, but sadly, I only really got to build my navy wardrobe this year. All this time, I’ve been so fixated on black that I haven’t been able to pay any attention to any other alternative. Until now! I find that navy is a lot less harsh than black, yet still manages to give off a similar whiff of sophistication. I’m obsessed. I need more of it in my life.
To be honest, navy used to irk me a bit whenever I’d go shopping. Store lighting makes it so difficult to differentiate the two sometimes, and of course, the last thing I want to bring home is an item in the wrong color. I’ve been consciously looking for it nowadays, but I guess I have to wait until the F/W collections are available before I can go out and splurge on all things navy. It’s already July anyway? Just a little longer!
That moment when Apartment 8 decided to make a tent dress again! And in my favorite blue, no less. Though it wouldn’t hurt to have this dress made in all colors possible - it’s such a simple and classy design that will surely last a long time in every girl’s closet.
But of course, my real agenda for perpetually worshipping this kind of silhouette is the fact that you can eat all you can, and your lunch buffet stomach pooch will never show. I hate holding back, lol. Tent dresses are my savior!
Here’s a simple outfit inspired by Frozen and the Winter Olympics. Too bad my hair is still too short for Elsa braids, but a side ponytail will do in this case! Just imagine that the transparent part on my shoes is made of ice.
I’ve never tried ice skating before. I never even learned how to ride a bike! As a kid and teenager, I’ve always had a fear of falling down. This hindered me from trying out many things. I’ve always been vocal about hating sports and any sort of physical activity (shopping and traveling not included), but at the end of the day, I think I just never gave them a real chance. I know we all have our first few failed attempts, but I sucked at PE so much that I grew up conditioning myself that anything related to it is not worth my time and effort. All this, when I should’ve put in at least the slightest bit of effort to practice and improve.
The irony comes in when you realize everything, but you’ve already developed a stubborn (and very bad) habit of shutting something out completely every time an initial attempt fails.
For the past year or so, I’ve been learning to laugh at myself more. So far, defrosting the habit has been successful.
My first #OOTD for 2014 is here!
If there’s one hashtag I overuse, it’s definitely the #OOTD hashtag. How can I *not* use it, when I’m a personal style blogger? I can never go a week without posting an outfit on my Instagram! Which reminds me… I totally need to work on those pending Instagram photo dumps that I promised, lol.
Someone commented that my skirt reminded her so much of Sailor Moon. That iconic pleated blue skirt - who could forget that? Who else is excited to the Sailor Moon reboot this year?! My favorite sailor senshi from my childhood were Sailor Mars and Sailor Venus.
Just because they had beautiful hair.
