Relaxed weekend outfit. I haven’t worn dresses like this in a long time! Now that it’s officially summer in Manila, simple, one-piece items are slowly becoming my uniforms. I refuse to think anymore when the temperature is this high.
What’s worse is that whenever I go inside air-conditioned places, I still get cold enough to need to wear a jacket. Someone teleport me to a place that is 10 degrees Celsius right now. Maybe back to sakura-filled Japan because I’m obviously still not over it.
Finally found the perfect crop top that has a high neck and long sleeves! Call me modest, but I generally prefer to keep skin-baring to a minimum. I’m usually already all legs so I always balance it out by wearing more conservative tops (i.e. my favorite button-downs and sweaters).
I count showing my face as skin-baring too, so…
Yes. I need more cloth on my body.
I know I’m rarely seen wearing this many colors all at the same time. What happened and why did I suddenly turn into a colorful spring fairy? It seems that the transition arrived a little bit too early this year!
Last night, after the Gingersnaps 20th Anniversary event (will blog about it soon), I had an hour to kill at the mall while I waited for the boyfriend to pick me up for dinner. I pretty much headed straight for the racks where all the pinks and pastels were. Resisted the urge to spend unnecessarily, but I was thisclose to buying at least 1 bright and colorful item in every single clothing store.
It is way too early for this.
P.S. My hair is growing at an abnormally fast rate. Haven’t decided yet if I should keep the length or grow it out!
After watching the Gin no Saji anime, I found myself more fascinated towards animals I would often just overlook. I never thought pigs were cute until I saw Hachiken’s pet Butadon. Aki’s fascination for horses was also quite contagious, and I could see why with how they depicted horses in the series. (Aki’s great grandma was the cutest in the whole series though!)
As a tribute of sorts, I wore a horse print top and a horse print skirt! These are separate items that coincidentally complemented each other, and with matching top and bottom craze going on, I guess this just proves that “sets” don’t have to be the exact same print. If anything, the same theme (horses) and color scheme (pastels) can do.
Also, with every wash, my hair seems to change color! Red really does wash out easily! Definitely have to go for a whole head retouch next month before I leave the country again!
While the pencil silhouette is one of the oldest silhouettes that we know, it’s definitely not the most outdated. Pencil skirts have recently crossed over from the confines of the workplace to a more mainstream fashion context, much to the delight of girls all over the world who prefer longer hems. It was all over S/S 13 runways, but it seems like it’s not going away any time soon! Saw photos of the latest Burberry S/S 14 show on their Instagram, and pencil skirts were all the rage!
I’m not one to often wear bodycon or anything tight-fitting, but these skirts are an exception because they are so sophisticated and great for day-to-night dressing. You can style it in your own way, according to your body type (I once saw a photo of Liz Uy wearing a pencil skirt with a fitted tank top that emphasized her fit/curvy body). Fortunately, my body type permits me to wear them with oversized tops to balance out the tight bottom.
Tall girls can get away with wearing flats with pencil skirts without looking frumpy, but for us normal girls, nothing is more ideal than pairing them with sky high heels to elongate the body.
The pencil skirt has been around for as long as we can remember, but this season, its comeback will leave you wanting more. Next on my list - printed ones that would look great with my casual tees!
