I recently moved all the cute and flirty dresses on the top of my pile of clothes because I’m so ready for that one time every year where I suddenly transform into a floral fairy. Summer’s just around the corner here in Manila, and I can definitely feel it already! A part of me hopes that the chilly January-February weather can last forever, but summer, while it is my least favorite season, also has its good points - one of them being the license to wear pretty floral prints, braids, and pastel-colored sandals everyday.
I’m still drawn to the blacks and whites in my wardrobe though I’ve been trying my best to pair them with spring-ish stuff in preparation. Though I’m pretty sure I’ll still be wearing a lot of neutrals when I go to Tokyo in two weeks! Heard it lightly snowed again today!
First time in a long time to wear creepers, and I’m still a little on the fence about them. I often see Luanna from Lookbook rocking them so naturally, pairing them with her effortless punk, grudge style that I could only wish to pull off. I do love that they give a much-appreciated height boost without sacrificing on comfort and that the thick soles make them perfect for cold weather dressing, but I still prefer sleeker, more sophisticated footwear that can give my legs a more svelte silhouette.
Anyhow, one day, I just thought it would be cute to wear a more cutesy, not-so-badass outfit with these shoes. Of course, there had to be cats involved.
This was my Christmas Day outfit! Decided last minute that I didn’t want to wear red because I already exceeded my self-imposed red quota last December. So hipster of me to take the less popular option. There’s a little bit of gold, at least?
I spent most of Christmas Day with my mom’s side of the family. It’s all a blur now because I can’t remember doing anything else but eat every few minutes. And Mario Kart (of course).
Day ended with a perfect Christmas dinner with the boyfriend Rg. I don’t know how I ever got to this point where I remember my days by the food that I eat. Holidaze.
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!
It may be because after winter is spring and because I’ve been too fixated on black and red lately that I’m embracing anything that’s girly, pink and floral as early as now. I haven’t had a similar obsession with pink before, and I totally blame EMODA S/S 2014 pink gingham and florals for everything. I’m crossing my fingers my schedule will allow me to fly to Tokyo this spring so I can visit friends and shop ‘til I drop!
I saw this button-down and sweater during Mango’s End of Season sale and immediately knew that I had to wear them together like this. Not quite F/W, not quite S/S, but I guess this is what makes it all the more interesting-looking.
I queued this post so my blog won’t be dead while I’m in Taiwan. I hope you guys are having an awesome time back home!
Dumping all these outfits in here before the year ends. 2013 has been a great year for me, and it is probably one that I will never, ever forget. I think my style has changed drastically this year, especially after I got my hair cut and dyed a totally different style from what everyone has been used to all these years. Looking back, it was one of those many decisions that I need to put into my list of impulsive things I did that changed my life for the better.
Today also marks the last day of my 31 Days of Style with Candy! You might have noticed that I’ve been extra active on Lookbook this month and this was the reason why. It’s mostly a story about layering and wearing outerwear. I hope it won’t go away any time soon for those who still need inspiration for cold weather dressing in the next couple of months!
Speaking of Candy, I did a number of medium-length hair tutorials for them last November! I don’t think I’ve mentioned this here before but it’s better late than never, right? I noticed a lot of the girls who went to my book signing events also cut their hair to medium-length - you girls might want to check the videos out for a last minute New Year makeover!
I’ll be leaving for Taiwan soon so I’ll just be queuing posts again while I’m gone! Happy New Year!
