Almost forgot about this set of photos from exactly a month ago. I dropped by Belle de Jour's Brew Your Best Year event which was super fun, albeit too short. We were asked to define our short-term and long-term goals within 5 minutes or so, and I pretty much sucked at it because I'm not one to think too far ahead. Life has brought me to where I am now, and I believe I had very little to do with it.
Anyhow, I don’t know why I look different and extra-squinty here. When Rg takes my photos, I somehow end up transforming into another person who just looks like me. Or maybe the other me is myself when I take my own photos and this is the real me. Must stop confusing myself now…
More denim inspiration for those who need ideas on how to rock skinny jeans! I personally prefer to keep it clean and simple when I’m wearing jeans, so I tend to pair them with plain tops or classic patterns that are just as straightforward. Less is more!

Perks of living in a tropical country - summer clothes all year round! Just G has always been that one brand I like that doesn’t strictly follow all the seasons, so it’s always a breath of fresh air to go into their store in December and not find heavy outerwear or dark colors. Their latest collection features a lot of coral hues and cool blues which are perfect for casual day dressing.
I don’t always go out wearing fancy clothes the whole day. I usually wear simple and comfortable outfits like these whenever I have to go on a quick coffee run or do errands at the bank, grocery shopping, store pull-outs, etc. I do try to put in a little bit of effort every time though, like how I paired my romper with a jacket and my printed tee with a floral skirt in the first two looks to avoid looking too sloppy or lazy, and how I played with different patterns in the last one because I felt like I need to do something with my outfit if I didn’t want to wear fancy shoes and accessories!

We all know that denim never goes out of style, which is exactly why it was top of mind when I started listing down items for my book, 150 Style Essentials For Every Girl. I don’t think there’s any place in the world where nobody is wearing denim, and this is only testament to how important and versatile it is for everybody, fashion-conscious or not!
I started my interest in denim when I was in 6th grade, when I asked my mom, for the very first time, to buy me a pair of elephant pants because it was all the rage among my friends then. Thank God OOTDs weren’t invented yet because I was such a fashion victim, lol. I continued to wear them as I transitioned to high school, until I outgrew pants in general and instead turned to shorts and skirts.
But there was never a time when I had zero denim in my closet. I always had a pair or two until I was able to afford getting my own clothes and choose the styles that I liked. Eventually, I learned that skinny jeans suited my body type best, and got them in different denim washes, this classic, dark blue wash included. I have friends who prefer lighter washes, loose/baggy styles, or ones that come with a few rips here and there, but they’re denim all the same!
Speaking of denim…
In the spirit of Christmas, Wrangler Philippines decided to give away my #TriciaGosingtianStyleBook as gifts to 10 lucky winners everyday until the 23rd! It’s only the 5th day today, and so far, 50 people have already won their own free copies of my book. Super easy! It’s also my way of thanking you guys for all the continued support.
Anyhow, all the winners had to do was follow and tweet @WranglerPH a Tricia-inspired denim outfit photo! The 10 best ones for the day will be announced every 8PM. You can keep on joining everyday until the 23rd.
What’s even more awesome about it is that the denim contest is open to Asia! So to those from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, etc etc who were asking me how to get a copy of my book, this is your chance!
This is the last but definitely not the least Gap outfit I created for their global Styld.by campaign. I’m pretty sure I’ve worn something similar in the past with the striped sweater and high-waist skirt combination as it is quite typical Tricia, but I mixed this pink and blue plaid shirt in for that fun element that my everyday outfits seem to lack (I openly admit to being a very practical, no-fuss dresser!).
Mango’s recent lookbook features forest prints, but it is far from your ordinary nature-inspired collection. Let’s leave the dainty florals and pastel hues for spring/summer, and celebrate Mango’s darker themes for fall/winter…
…along with Catching Fire. I’ve never read the books but watching the movie has strongly encouraged me to do so. I must say I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much if it weren’t for Johanna and Finnick!
I feel like I’ve never been more drawn to forest fashion until I saw the recent Hunger Games movie and these two printed tops from Mango’s latest collection.
Doesn’t this print on this top remind you of the lightning tree in the movie?
I’m all for wearing art on my clothes, and I love how this looks liks an elegant painting. The orange bits make it look like the forest is on fire too!
