The current weather here in Manila is definitely not helping me become productive at this crucial time of the year, but at least it’s giving me a reason to bring out my cozy sweaters again. This might seem out of place considering everyone is still in major summer mode, but I can’t help but embrace the cold! This is definitely my element, and I just want time to fast forward a bit and get to the part where all the stores release their fall-winter collections.
Right now, everything seems to be in transit to something newer and potentially greater. Call it quarter life crisis but I feel like I’m right smack in the center of it all. I don’t really know what the world holds for me, but all I’m sure of is that my present choices can add up to that revealing moment in the future, wherever (status/job/etc) I find myself. It may be a vague period in my life, but I guess I have no other choice but to just my best!
I found the nicest summer weekend dress! Sleeveless dresses are rather tricky for me, but this one is just more than ideal with the kind of cut that I am always drawn to. Forgive my lack of proper boobage (Oh yes, I said it.) to fill this dress out properly, but the dress is kind of amazing for still making me seem like I have a feminine figure, especially with the belt accessory to accentuate the waist. It’s so rare for me to find sleeveless dresses that don’t emphasize my strange boxy body type. /cry
The black of the belt matches the black of my heels perfectly, like salt and pepper or peanut butter and jelly. It’s easy to misconstrue this as overthinking outfits too much. In all honesty though, I think I’m just immensely obsessive about the colors that I wear - being all matchy-matchy is like second nature to me already.
ALSO, don’t these heels look just like the Zara ones from a few seasons ago? Lucky me, as I failed to buy the real ones while they were still in stores. What a steal.
Wearing yummy, creamy colors for a change, since I’ve been too obsessed with black recently. I am quite guilty for overlooking all the pinks, nudes, browns and whites in my closet since Christmas season started, so I’m wearing them all at the same time to make amends. How do you like it? Monochromatic dressing or wearing an outfit primarily composed of one color is something that has always appealed to me because the effect is always so classy and sophisticated, never passing off as too overdone. And I’m definitely not one to dress up loud and flashy so these classic items from Bayo are perfect!
I’m wearing yummy dessert colors because I miss Laduree, Pierre Herme and Angelina macarons already! I swear you can never have too many macarons when you’re in Paris.
Gold accessories are totally my favorite accents to neutrals. They give off a very elegant vibe, don’t you think? A combination as casual as a loose black collared shirt and a simple pair of brown skinny pants can look more polished if paired with even the simplest gold accessories. Clearly I’m still not over all the shiny metallics from last Fall!
This is bad. I actually have a “golden wishlist”, which includes things I don’t have yet! Gold high-waist shorts, a gold a-line high-waist mini skirt, more gold accessories, gold hair ties, and a gold iPhone 4s case - these are only some of the things I’m on the lookout for! I wish I could be King Midas for a day and make all sorts of gold bling.
I wish this power could also have my roots bleach themselves golden in an instant, haha.
I’ll be leaving for Vietnam and Cambodia tomorrow so I’ll be queueing some entries while I’m gone. So psyched to make another travel photo entry after my trip. I still have tons of blog entries to work on, but I’m definitely going to prioritize that one when I get back. Seriously, who wouldn’t get excited for Angkor Wat?!
