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!
Jumping on the midi circle skirt bandwagon with this one. You can pair anything with this skirt and still end up looking ultra feminine. This is exactly why everyone needs to have at least one of these in their closets.
Apparently, I’ve also caught the holiday fashion bug with the colors I used for this outfit. How is it already November? My heart and mind are still stuck in June!
When your collar looks like this, who needs accessories? I’m quite the practical dresser, and I live for fashion hacks like this one. We definitely need more of these bejeweled collars in the world because they’re so instantly and effortlessly glam!
Posting this outfit while I’m freezing my ass off in the US is making me miss the warmer weather a little bit. The wind here in Chicago will be the death of me!
I’ve modeled the gold Casio vintage series before, but I also actually own some of the iconic silver versions! To be honest, I haven’t been using them as often as my gold watches, but I’ve been taking a liking to this particular silver model lately.
Before the trend caught on, one of my male friends already owned a silver vintage Casio. It was a lightbulb moment as I reflected on how these watches got so popular all of a sudden. Not only can girls wear them, but guys can also sport them too! The silver ones are more unisex than the gold ones, which is exactly why they look extra good with boyish outfits like this one.
And I don’t know if it’s just me, but the silver ones look a bit more old school than the gold ones! The black/silver face is so nostalgic! Reminds me so much of the gadgets we had way back in the 90s. I could definitely see why so many people have this watch.
Anyhow, if you haven’t found a copy of my book yet, Time Depot is giving away 5 books to 5 lucky Instagram users! All you have to do is

Thanks to Chase Gosingtian for helping me with my photos.
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!
Day to night dressing is super fun and not at all challenging for me. Knowing that I can totally transform an outfit’s vibe with the help of styling thrills me and makes me want to invest on certain style essentials even more. I mean, let’s be honest - buying things that you can only use once isn’t very economical, and it occupies a lot of space too. I’ve actually been feeling bad for leaving a lot of my older stuff (especially shoes) unattended lately. Somewhere, in the world, a girl is wishing to have another pair of feet just so she can simultaneously wear more fabulous shoes. #shoeaholicproblems
Will update everyone if ever I decide to do a garage sale! My room is seriously a mess right now. Half my bed is occupied with things.
My love for sneakers and sporty/street-meets-chic style is growing at epic proportions. If I didn’t have to challenge myself to wear new things everyday, my daily uniform would probably revolve around snapbacks and sneaker wedges paired with girly elements like lace and a-line skirts.
Snapback caps, however, aren’t the only things that automatically give an outfit a street/sporty vibe. I recently discovered how big, bulky watches can also add to the effect.
And coincidentally, my new Baby-G matches the exact metallic quality of my sneaker wedges. Pairing shoes and bags is an easy way to make an outfit cohesive, but pairing shoes with timepieces also creates interesting results.
Obligatory “must sell this watch” pose, lol. My denim jacket also has silver studs. Match your metals!
Have not adjusted the time and date yet when I took this. After taking this photo, I spent the next minute laughing my ass off since the watch reminded me so much of the Google Authenticator “G” logo. G is for Google. Baby-G. Just G. Tricia G. So many Gs in this world.
If anyone’s interested, this watch model is BA-110-8A and it’s available for P6995. More details here.
Been really itching to post this, but first had to get a go signal before I could properly share this in public. The first photo may already be familiar if you’ve been following me on Twitter, as I once used it as my Twitter profile pic. Oops! Talk about being impatient!
Some time ago, I did a shoot with Time Depot and Casio as an endorser of sorts, particularly for their retro/vintage watches. The sudden craze for these watches started last year, but it is definitely not going to disappear any time soon. I keep on repeating in my posts that fashion people are on a ’90s fashion comeback high, and this watch series definitely fits the bill if you want a stylish watch to go with this season’s trends.
And where’s a better place to buy these watches than from Time Depot, the official distributor of Casio in the Philippines? Their watches are priced lower than online sellers, are 100% legit and brand new, and most importantly, have warranties!
I can wear my vintage Casio watches with literally almost EVERYTHING. They are versatile enough to suit different styles such as edgy-street, flirty/girly-fun, and even simple-classic. There are silver ones and other colors but the gold ones are most recommended. Personally, it’s because they’re incredibly easy to match with gold jewelry and all sorts of arm candy.
