The Cold Season

Summer is rapidly ending here in the Philippines and I certainly need to switch my collection to ” Cold Season “.
For many of you who didn’t know, I’m not actually a fan of the Summer season but I certainly need the 2 – month vacation. I’m not saying Summer is bad. I just don’t like the hot weather + the bright sunshine. Heck, I don’t even know how to swim when summer is the time when teens like me have fun under the sun.

Lame right?

Now let’s get back to the main subject, The Cold Season.
I love the season because it has all the elements I need to be happy and contented. So, I’m going to give out my top five reasons of why I love the season.
First, I love layering my clothes. Let me just tell you that I’m a total fan of jackets.

Second, I love rain. I enjoy rainy days because I personally think it’s an excuse to be lazy with no complaints. These are the days when I just want to lie down in my cozy bed and watch corny chick flicks while drinking hot chocolate in my very own abode.

Third, the bright sunshine is temporarily gone. My eyes just simply hate the sight of a sunny day. I don’t know how to explain it but it just irritates me. The only thing I like about the summer season is that it allows me to wear bohemian and breezy outfits.

Fourth, Lighting. I love the cold season because the day is neither entirely dark or too bright for a mini photoshoot.

And lastly, my fifth reason is being able to wear boots without getting weird looks from people like I’m some kind of a lunatic. I just love wearing boots of any kind especially in a cold season because it simply gives comfort, warmth, and extra appeal to my whole look. I especially love matching it with a jacket.

Although I’m not wearing boots in this specific outfit, I just wanted to tell my readers that I was in a hurry at that time and I got no time to choose the perfect shoes.
So, I just happened to pick my favorite pair of heeled sandals and thought, what could go wrong with these?

Now, for the details of my outfit: The little black dress is from Burberry – Blue Collection. This dress is one of my favorites.

The blue denim jacket is from Forever 21 while my favorite shoes are from Sm Parisian. As for the accessories, I got my awesome shades from Fly Shades and watch from Daniel Wellington.

Festive In The City

Have you ever experienced the feeling of being festive?

Well, I just did.

So last weekend, I was invited to my aunt’s barrio festival in her place in Lapu-Lapu City. I actually got really festive of the celebration, feeling the festival’s spirit.

I got the feeling of wearing something boho-like because it is simply my signature style for the hot season.

So, I scanned my closet to find some stylish pieces which I can use to create a nice ensemble. The first thing that came to my mind in finding the perfect outfit is COMFORT. I want to wear something comfortable but at the same time, stylish.

As I scanned the first rack of my closet, something caught my eye. It was a colorful skirt. It was definitely Coachella-like. As I looked at it, I knew right then that it would definitely be my lower piece.

I decided to match it with a loose, long-sleeved, white, cropped top. It was totally going to be my upper piece. The top I’m wearing is from Cotton On.

The top I’m wearing is from Cotton On. While the colorful skirt is actually from my mom’s “teenage days” closet. I enjoy getting clothes from her vintage closet because let me just say, my mom’s style is fabulous. I think I got my style from her.

The fringe leather bag is also from my mom’s vintage closet.

Well, Let me tell you a fact. It’s actually 38 years old.

Pretty old right?

Lastly, my strappy shoes are from SM Parisian.

The Summer Vibe

Let me ask you something. What is your signature style for this summer?

Well… Let me tell you mine. My signature look is all boho in style. I cherish bohemian and gypsy fashion because of their unique yet casual look. In other words, I kinda enjoy trying to look like a hippie. Ever since I was young, I always admired how hippies dress theirselves because they’ve always managed to make fashion effortless. I like wearing light and loose clothes ( *coughs* sometimes) but not too basic in style which is totally perfect for the hot season. I also admire their famous saying ” worn them before they were even cool “, I mean that’s totally my definition of originality in style.

I tried mixing old and new pieces to create this outfit. The only thing new in my outfit is the red blouse. I actually got it from HM’s Coachella Collection. The rest of my outfit is from my own closet. Oh! and the accessories are from Forever 21,  last but not the least, I got those amazing sunglasses from fly shades. Their brand has a wide variety of chic and trendy sunglasses that suit your face shape and style. The good thing is that it’s available nationwide. I got mine from Sm City Cebu Branch.

For the hair, I advise you to just make things simple and effortless. Honestly, when I was still in grade school,  I confess that I don’t usually tie my hair into a bun because I felt like it would only make my face big and round but I realized that it was just me being insecure. Just be confident of what you look like because as cliché as it sounds, we are all unique and beautiful in our own ways.

For medium or short hair, I advise you to spray some hair spray on your bun to keep it steady for hours.
