Just G: A Shorts Story

Posted on Tuesday, 11 March 2014

I know that summer is finally here when I need to open the aircon at night to get a good night’s sleep. I usually save a lot of electricity around January and February, but I’m pretty sure I’m also the reason why the electricity bills go up from March to May. Oops! I absolutely abhor scorching hot weather so expect me to be in malls or anywhere cold the next few months.

My closet’s pants pile has been disregarded for some time now, because I’m all about showing off legs nowadays. The flexibility of layering tops, jackets and sweaters appeals to me more because it’s usually my torso that’s sensitive to temperature changes! My legs need to breathe. Thank you very much!

Speaking of legs, shorts are the best ways to show them off this season! Just G’s early summer collection showcases different kinds to suit your needs. I wore one top (also from Just G) to prove how their shorts can be styled for various occasions!

The simple, everyday look with a twist. The shorts I’m wearing here are actually printed gym shorts! Who would’ve thought? Sporty elements are still huge this season, and as usual, I like juxtaposing them with girly and more sophisticated items.

The boy/girl look. Lace and florals with slip-ons and snapbacks? Yes please!

The laid-back weekend look. Just throw a sweater over your lace top if it gets chilly! 

I also matched my lipstick with the embroidery on my denim shorts because I’m a little obsessive-compulsive like that.

The girls’ night out look. I love this pair of shorts because underneath the black lace is a colorful floral print! Great day-to-night item to have in your closet this summer.

Milking my red hair for all it’s worth by dressing up to make it stand out as much as possible. This means a lot of black, gray and white, and the occasional pop of color that, for me, is a no-fail way to make a seemingly simple outfit look more interesting than it actually is. Outerwear in black is also always classic. 

My love for red includes all fifty shades (lol), but right now, I’m particularly loving the super bright kind of red that matches most of my lipstick, and the darker shades of oxblood that is a wee bit more understated than most reds we come across on a daily basis. 

This morning, I stumbled upon some older photos of myself, way back when I had really long, light ash brown hair. I looked so different, and I could see why I used to only stick to dainty floral prints and cutesy clothes. It’s amazing how hair color can instantly change your overall look. 

Another interesting story from this morning - the first thing I heard from our household helper was that my mom ordered me to eat some leaves. Half-awake me went all like, WHAAAT? And then I found out later on that my mom bought arugula (my fave, btw). 

Totally reminded me of that time when I asked her to buy Lays and Ruffles potato chips, and got actual lace and ruffled ribbons instead. Classic!

This is the second out of three outfits I created for Gap’s global Styld.by campaign! I went into the Gap store at BHS to check the latest collection out, and I must say that this jacket spoke to me so strongly that my day was pretty much made by the mere sight of it. I can’t think of any other place that sells something remotely similar. I knew I had to have it as soon as I laid my eyes on it, and when I did, I needed to make it the highlight of my outfit instead of just an add-on.  So much love.

Uniform

Maybe it’s the numerous years I’ve spent wearing uniforms in my lifetime that made me unconsciously bring the habit over to the present. I went to a school that required us to wear a white sailor top and a checkered black and white skirt to school everyday, and I never hated wearing it. I even thought we had one of the best, if not the best-looking uniform around (FYI, I proudly went to St. Paul Pasig from Kindergarten to High School). But then again, I’m always biased when it comes to clean and simple black and white. 

White top plus black bottom combo has never failed me, and I’ll totally still continue wearing it until the end of time. It enables me to play with the color of my bag and shoes to create that color accent effect that I’m often very fond of. Red is my IT color of the season.

Also, I dyed my hair red again a few days ago, but this time a little lighter so that when it fades to brown/orange, it’ll still look like it’s on fire!

Trendspotting: Just G’s Denim Jacket

Posted on Sunday, 16 June 2013

I think I bought around 4 different kinds of denim jackets in the last 2 months! What is this addiction?

With 90s fashion coming back with a vengeance, the denim jacket is surely one of this season’s most important staples! My relationship with denim jackets go way back 7th grade, the same time elephant pants caught on (to my dismay). Good thing denim jackets were carefully tried and tested (with good reviews) through the years, and now they’re slowly creeping back into my closet after so long.

One of the best things about denim jackets is their ability to put a fun, street vibe to almost anything! Just G included a good (and affordable) denim jacket in one of their recent collections, so I put together two different looks to show how you can wear it with other Just G items!

Grungy denim and flirty florals always make a good combination because of the contrast between tough and sweet.

Here’s something a little inspired by K-pop (mostly the headband and the shoes). Denim jackets also work surprisingly well with different kinds of prints and patterns! Who would’ve thought?
