Besides making me obsessed with cherry blossoms and everything pink, my last two trips to Japan (last March and just last week) made me find a new appreciation for the color green. I actually used to hate it with a passion, to the point that I would turn all the green in my photos into yellow (a.k.a. the reason why all my old travel photos circa 2011/2012 have a serious yellow tinge in them). Once in a while, my family would joke about how it’s only natural… graduating from Ateneo and all. LOL. I’m not that hardcore!
When the color blocking trend happened a few years ago, I didn’t both stocking up on green clothes, and only fixed my eyes on other colors like blue (my favorite). It’s never too late, I guess?
Just when I thought I was over the sporty style trend, Just G comes out with a new, not-so-cookie-cutter collection that is cuter than your ordinary athletic wear.
At this time last year, they came out with super stylish sweatpants that sold out instantly. How can they not? Nowadays, we all know that multipurpose is the way to go.
Who says you can’t mix in girly details on your favorite gray sweatshirt?
These patterned shorts are so comfortable I’m torn whether I should use them to motivate myself to exercise, or use them as loungewear.
Guess which option I am more inclined to.
And the highlight of this post comes in the form of this skirt that is such a genius idea. There are so many dark gray gym shorts and sweatpants with neon trims - why not make a skirt version?
Casual enough for lazy, everyday dressing, but also awesome enough to be dressed up with bright coral lips, accessories and heels. Pretty much my formula for wearing the trend.
P.S. My new hair color is by Status Salon!
I was thisclose to making Peachy Green as the title as wordplay for peachy keen and the colors of my outfit, but good thing I googled it first before publishing, as I found it to be a brand of cloth diapers. Well, cute ones, but still.
Anyhow, I’ve been bringing out all the spring/summer stuff I haven’t worn yet before everyone starts shifting to fall/winter this September. Highlight of this outfit is definitely this trendy off-shoulder/cold shoulder cut that I’ve done a number of times but have a hard time letting go. Once you find a trend that suits your body type, it’d be unthinkable to completely forget about it after the hype is over. It doesn’t seem like it’s going away any time soon though, and I’m pretty sure there will always be a market (case in point: me included) for shoulder-baring anything now that people have had a taste of it this summer.
This is one cliche that I will always approve of. White has always been a staple color for spring/summer fashion, but with the black-and-white color blocking trend still staying strong, it’s the perfect time to invest in all the white that you need in your closet!
A white top can match pretty much anything and everything! I love this particular one as it has this trendy mesh detail that adds a subtle hint of sexiness. Add a pop of neon for more fun!
White pants can be difficult to pull off for most people (and not to mention, can induce major stain paranoia) but the right cut and the right fit can give you a fresh and unique look.
A white jacket need not look like a doctor’s white coat. This particular one has sequins on them, making it a good day-to-night add-on to a seemingly casual outfit. I’m actually just wearing a simple chiffon top and plain denim shorts underneath!
Been very, very obsessed with retro style for as long as I can remember, and I’m so glad to have chanced upon this top. Just super ideal for the kind of look I was going for. The sleeves make it incredibly precious - I wish to have more of these bell sleeves in the future. Such a sweet detail that I think is quite underrated.
I have also been into a lot of simple rings, usamimi headbands and statement earrings ever since I got back from Osaka. I went on a major accessories shopping spree, and I’m still not satisfied. Less than 10 days left before I leave again for Tokyo! Time is ticking, and chaos awaits my credit card… T_T
