Island Girl

                 Outfit:  Island Life Bomber Jacket from Sammydress 

Do you know those unplanned moments? Those are the best ones! ❤

So I went on a trip and with my love and the idea just came up for about 30 minutes after we ate in a restaurant. We really miss the waters and sand just like that!  It was one of the best beach trips ever!

I’m so happy to be residing near the bay area and beautiful beaches are just 30 minutes or an hour away! Happy to be living the Island life!

My packing for this trip just took me 10 minutes! lol Of course, I had to bring swimmies with me and a jacket for those cool nights and I brought my fave one from SammyDress! Isn’t it just perfect?

I know you’ll rarely see people wearing bomber jackets on the beach but definitely this one is an exemption! 🙂

Here are more photos from our amazing beach getaway:

 I can’t wait for more adventures and even quick packing may sometimes be stressful, it’s quite enjoyable for me. It’s a little bit of a challenge in picking outfits that you’ll bring with your trip and that’s how I like it. A spontaneous one! 🙂

Breaking the Norm

 

It was one fine sunny November. Fall season for others but as you know it’s forever summer in the PH. Although there are times where I can feel the Christmas breeze or suddenly there are cold weathers because of the rain or typhoon (unfortunately).

So sometimes it’s a little bit difficult to decide what to wear and what not to wear. Then I thought, there shouldn’t always be a certain rule for fashion after all. It’s matter of expression. As for me, there’s always a story behind my outfit. If you notice sometimes I go crazy with it because I can’t seem to stick with one concept. It always depends on my emotions, situation and some daily random inspiration.

Then come this outfit for the first week of November! I really can’t seem to break free from my love of pastels. My dress seems to scream summer but since it’s layering season and for my recent obsession of leather/ moto jackets I had the confidence to combine them together! Who would have thought an edgy outfit can go so well with a dainty one? 🙂

So if you think you should be throwing that favorite clothing of yours from the past seasons, think again! Mix and match is really fun! You don’t always have to jump in the bandwagon but be the start and let the others jump in! 🙂

Oversized Everything

Lazy dress down days as of the moment. I let my skimpy clothes take their days off for a while. You know those PMS bloated looking kind of days or that day after PMS had finally come? Those are the times that you have to weigh between style and comfort or else you’re gonna have to ditch your  supposed plan with your besties out for shopping or skip that movie that you were dying to watch just because you ain’t got nothing to wear #girlproblems. But, why choose and hesitate when you can have both? When you can have the best of both worlds? 🙂

The key into balancing comfort and style? Thank heavens for over sized denim jackets and boyfriend tees!

As you can see, this outfit was an easy peasy. Including my hairstyle too! I did not care how messy my hair was as you can see above. (And I’m just THAT LAZY that day haha) :p

I must say they are one of the pieces a girl must have in their closet! (Or if you still don’t have them, you can always borrow from your boyfriend or your brother!)

They’re so comforting, convenient yet stylish at the same time. Add an edge to your whole look by wearing a choker, or your favorite sneakers. If you’re a little bit on the feminine side, you can also wear you dainty dress with your oversized denim jacket and your doll shoes will do. 🙂

Also a great outfit for rainy season right? But wayyyy effortless!

Agettitude

Hola! A different day, always means a different outfit for me. I never got stuck in one style or concept. I always have to have to be me… CRAZY! :p

You know, I’m already in my late 20’s and the norm is you should always be wearing appropriately or accordingly to your age and status. Like, that white crisp shirt or that nice black trousers and a pair of heels. I do love that to wear that sometimes. But hell no, I ain’t gonna be your plain Jane all the time.And….  I’d might spill a cola on that white crisp shirt though. haha.

Soooo. Here is one of my personas. The edgy street style that I was always used to be. :)I really learned how not to care about how will people think  about the way that I dress up.

Sad to say, I live in a hometown where people will look at you from head to toe when they see something unnatural for them but I dare to be different. I want society to know your age or status should not stop you in expressing your own conception of aesthetics.

So here’s me rockin a tomboy edgy outfit because I just want to and I don’t care if I’m a mother of a 4 year old girl already. 🙂

Octo-brrr

Oh I just can’t believe it’s the month of October already! Bers are always going to be my favorite months. It’s also one of the perfect times to layer your clothing. To make you feel warm during the brrr days.

Can you believe it was a sunny  but I didn’t sweat wearing these? All I can say it was a one fine day! The day has finally come where in you can pull out those jackets/cardigans/coats you have been hiding for ages! Oh yeah and those chunky boots too that you’ve been dying to wear.

For this look I actually had a concept between glam and basic. I wanna go with the look of shiny shimmering splendid without overdoing it!  The Oversized Cable Knit Coat is superb! It can make a boring outfit into vavavoom!

I paired it with a Gigi-Inspired Choker to add sparkle to my look. A ribbed knot white top and a high waist black denim shorts with a vintage belt cause I like to add an edge for this whole outfit.(because that’s just me, I’m not all glamorous lol)

There it is. My look for the start of Octobrrr. Will definitely post more soon about layering clothes. ❤

Sunday Morning

I remember how I hated Sundays. It was a gloomy day for me way back. Thinking Monday will be tomorrow (in both a negative and a positive way) so you just can’t wait til Sunday ends and there’s nothing else to do just sitting on the couch looking at your mom watching her favorite talk shows and trying to convince yourself to go to bed early but you’re not sleepy yet so you ended up staring blankly at the ceiling. Although this was me and my thoughts when I was still in high school and college.

However, as I grew, I really learned how to appreciate Sundays now. It’s not boring but it’s full of a positive yet a chill kind of productivity. It’s a time for God, family, for relaxation, to reflect, a time for morning coffees or afternoon walks (plus shoot great ootds!). Now how I wish my Sunday was more than 24 hours. It seems to me the sun is always brighter when it’s Sunday. It also clears the rust of the whole week!  🙂

That’s why… Last weekend, I got an opportunity to have a stroll, shoot an outfit and even the sun was a bit intense that day, I really enjoyed it!

WIW: Giant Vintage Sunnies, Thrifted blouse (a good find!), Shiq bags , Payless shoes 

Sundays are also meant to appreciate nature and aesthetics!

. “Sunday. A day to refuel your soul and be grateful for your blessings. Take a deep breath and relax. Enjoy your family, your friends, and a cup of coffee.”

How I miss layering clothes! This bomber jacket is a total bomb! I have seen a similar one that Gigi Hadid wore so  was happy to get this in my mail. It’s perfect timing for the rainy weather.

 

It’s been ages since I have expressed my style thru writing. I dunno if it’s been the weather or my busy schedule. But you know what they say, if you want something you can always find time for everything. Although I must admit, it’s just that, maybe I have no special thing to say.

Until I realized that’s alright. You can not just make up stories so your outfit story will be interesting in the eyes of others. It’s a matter of  expression. The recent fashion blogging industry actually  made me uninterested. Before, blogging was about being yourself, embracing your inner style, a matter of expression. What just happened is it’s been a kind of business.I must admit that I have jumped into that box even I was just the out of the box kind of woman.

I remember I started blogging using my old clothes and unique thrift store finds. Way back 2009. Lookbook days where in mostly people were  genuine. I’m not saying I’m against new bloggers of today. I think you know what I mean. Those “I’m a blogger but I don’t even own a blog just a bunch of followers on Instagram.”  I ain’t gonna discuss further. Hurting feelings and making people feel unhappy on what they do is not my thing. But sometimes I can’t help it. Let’s just put it this way, there’s no “How to be a blogger” because it’s a substance of being yourself.

So to you fledgling fashionista, I encourage and would definitely not hinder you to be a blogger so go ahead, post that amazing photo of yours but at least write! Even it’s a boring one or only about your day. Hey, that’s okay!  That mood of yours made you come up with that style.What matters is not your followers, not your views or what’s trending on social media but conveying the authentic you. Yes, you are born to stand out. You will be remembered through your own unique brand. 🙂
