From Gray to Black

Yay! First of all, I'm so happy that it's going to be a long weekend for those working peeps here in Ph because of the Holy Week. And as for yours truly, can't wait to spend those free days in our church's camp!


Anyway, as for this post I know I am wearing the same pullover dress from here but I just can't help having my photos in it and show how well it goes with a pair of wedge sneakers and sunnies. One lazy-dress-up-day but don't want to look like it? Here you go!

Striped


Must have for SS 2013? Definitely something with black and white patterns. Evidences were seen on the fashion runways from designers like Mickael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Balmain and eventually on the covers of the magazines like Vogue, InStyle, Dansk and our very own Preview (local mag). 


So as for this outfit I'm wearing, obviously I was inspired by the trend. Well, for me, it's always good to be inspired by what's the latest and follow trends, what makes it extra special and different in a way is by making it your own. And by that I meant about injecting your personal style considering factors like your body type, comfort, occasion, weather, etc.


Sported this look on a Saturday with friends (eat out then home hang-out). Considering the activities (if you may call them that) we're about to do that day, I made sure to keep everything casual yet edgy by paring up the bold striped top (super old) over a pair of studded-black-denim cut-offs from and my favorite overused kicks. For those living in Manila like me, I know you're feeling that intense summer heat as well so make sure to always bring out those stylish sunnies for a little protection and extra statement. As for this instance, thought that my "Meteor" spectacles from Rayban I just scored from the recent Rima Sale, would do the work for me.

Tough


So given that I'm wearing a camo top above a pair of black leggings with leatherette line details in the side + aviators and studs details on my bag, it's just right that I'm naming this post - TOUGH. And because I consider myself a tough girl even though I don't look like it physically.


I wore this to a normal day at work in the office and then of course since I did field work as well, I was able to pose in front of the camera for this outfit shots. Anyway, I always like coming up wit outfits containing borrowed-from-the-boys elements, it just make the look more edgy. I love this parking space, a perfect place to take photos!

Neon Line


Wore this outfit last Sunday to Church and then to movies in the afternoon with ze boyfriend. Love this top I got before from the Forever 21 sale at 75% off - such a steal! Since the past few days are getting hotter and hotter, you always have to bring those protection for the eyes. As for this one, I got it from SM Accessories in a cheap price as well. You see fashion isn't always about the labels, it doesn't require expensive clothes and accessories. Most important element is you and how you carry them.

Watch: PARFOIS

Aquatic



Since summer is just around the corner, the hot temperature leaves us with no choice but to wear at least, summer-esque clothes. That identifies with my floral shorts and cool color palette that you see on this outfit. To create some balance with the colors, i opted to use different shades of brown for my accessories - bag, shoes and watch.

 Watch: TIMEX Expedition


Floral Shorts: TOPSHOP

 Pullover: Forever 21




Bag: PARFOIS

Ankle Boots and Socks: Forever 21

Out in the Woods


Discovered this nice outdoor-workout-park around BGC to take photos. Noticed the round metal signage nailed on the wood? The whole space is actually made for doing physical exercises and working out. While we were there, Neil and my brother were trying out some sit-ups, which they cannot manage to continue after one try, haha. I must say, it was a very nice idea to put out and I think we need more of those parks around the Metro to encourage people do more exercises...and besides that, there will be more areas for taking outfit shots. 


Since summer is really getting on its way in this beautiful tropical country, key to dressing up nowadays is simple - lighter clothes. I know, sweater days are over but I'm saying not, as long as you can still bear the hot temperature under it why not. Anyway, on this photos I'm wearing just a basic tank under a studded denim vest I bought months ago from Bangkok. Since the vest had a little weight on it, I made sure that everything else is lighter.

Apart from my personal outfit shots, Neil and my brother Paolo were also there to take part on a separate mini photoshoot we had for our Forever 21 V-Day Contest entry. Well, basically joining was my idea and I'm so glad that even though Neil isn't so comfortable doing it (posing and all) he was still game (that's my man! :)) Anyway, here's our entry to the contest. Credits to my brother who took our photos.


On Neil: Button Down: FlyingDutchman Belt: Forever 21 Watch: Nixon Chino Pants: H&M

Neil is supposed to be wearing a Sunglass from Forever 21 as well but I broke it while I was trying it on in the car. :( 

Anyway, please like our photo! You have to sign up at www.forever21ph.com first before you can give our entry a style hit. 

Thank you so much in advance from Neil and I!


God bless!
