I can’t believe I’ve been blogging about Just G for a year now. <3
When I run out of ideas on what to wear, I try to look back and browse through my older Lookbook entries. I don’t exactly do this to easily replicate what I’ve worn before, but I do this because mixing different outfits that I’ve worn in the past can somehow produce interesting results.
So in love with these shoes! I’ve always been on the lookout for the perfect pastel pink heels, and these ones were pretty much a gift from heaven. I wish these also came in other pastel colors like powder blue or a light lavender shade. <3
Finished my outfit with an eye-catching mustard bag that matches some of the yellows on my skirt.
Pastels and bright colors can actually go well together! This was an experiment that I did recently, and I’m so glad it didn’t turn out super weird. I balanced my pastel shoes off with a pastel pink headband, while keeping the other items rather bright and high-contrast.
And another pair of floral pants appears on my blog! They’re my favorites now, especially since I can pair them with the most neutral tops and almost no accessories because the busy prints are enough to make the whole outfit.
Cropped pants look great with heels! These ones remind me of very otona/mode-style shoes I’ve been seeing on Momoko Ogihara and Ena Matsumoto.
Yesterday was somewhat torture, yes? The afternoon heat made my body feel so sick that I wanted to turn the airconditioning on the whole day so I could temporarily turn the world upside down and make everything better. So much for electric bills though. And water bills too, since there are days when I take showers every few hours (How very Filipino of me!).
I posted a photo of this outfit on Instagram yesterday. Was a bit whiny about the crazy heat we’ve been having recently. Someone from another country replied, “I’ll trade the snow here for the heat there!” Ahh, people always want what they can’t have!
Winter and summer are extremes though, and honestly, if I had to choose between the two, I’d prefer the latter over the former, after having so many bad experiences with -15C weather. I *always* end up getting sick. I mean, who wouldn’t? One minute you’re outside a building and it’s snowing like there’s no tomorrow, and the next minute you’re right in front of a really warm fireplace or an establishment with a heater set on 30C.
Spring and fall are the most ideal seasons, imho. Not too cold, not too warm. It’s the best time to travel too. I’ll be going for a brief trip to London and Paris next week, which I’m really grateful for because I can’t wait for sweater weather. Time for my light knits again!
