Greetings from sunny Orlando, Florida! Been passing out on my bed every night since I got here, and it’s all because of Disney World. It’s my first time to experience something other than the usual Disneyland (I’ve been to the ones in Hong Kong, Japan and LA), and boy, is this place extra huge or what? Now I can totally understand why some people stay here for weeks!
Anyhow, here’s another one of my cutesy spins to the ever-so-popular sporty trend. You can’t get any more cheery than pink and yellow!
Recently got a skirt that looks so much like my high school uniform. To all the Paulinians out there, your school skirts can still serve as fashion statements even after graduation!
I styled it in two ways - one is nerdy Korean-inspired while the other is more retro-girly Japanese-inspired. I blame my Tokyo trip last March for getting me into mermaid-themed stuff! There were so many seashell earrings and accessories being sold at Shibuya109 while I was there, and it didn’t help that I was able to wear some at my J-Runway shoot (which I’ll blog about this month).
Gingham was still the top trend for spring and summer though, and I could totally see why. I’m actually really happy that gingham’s back because it’s a versatile pattern that isn’t just limited to the current season. It can still be carried over to fall and winter if styled properly. Classic!
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!
