Tidy Whites

Top and shorts from Greenhills; Flats from Hebe Manila

Hurray for white! 

I've been obsessed with all-white outfits recently. My imagination has been wanting to try a white ensemble in every style I could think of! But for today I opted for a casual and relaxed look. The weather (although very windy) was extremely hot last Saturday. With a full day ahead and no air conditioning, I had every intention to let my outfit have some space to breathe. 

It may not be that obvious, but my top is actually sheer. I'm so happy I have this piece. It's really a staple in my wardrobe :) The same goes for my white shorts! I love it when basic items come together to create something interesting! A few gold accents here and there, and this outfit was done. 

And another hurray for stylish flats!

Thanks Hebe Manila for these snakeskin-patterned flats! Although my heels do add those extra inches vertically, who said that flats couldn't offer the same level of stylishness? This pair for instance is really  attractive, and I loved how it looked in my outfit. It's all in how you carry what you wear :) 

Look! It even has a cute zipper detail at the back :)

Burnt Mustard

Dress from Romwe; Primadonna shoes

True, the simplest things can be the best things!

This dress simply speaks for itself. It's a classic item in a delectable color. I really can't put it down to its real shade. It's something like burnt mustard, I suppose. Not that I've seen actual burnt mustard haha :P I love that it's in an earth tone, but not a dull one. 

The best thing about dresses like this is that you don't have much to think about. Just put on your favorite heels, and you're good to go. If you want, you can go bolder with your makeup palette, like I chose to do this time. Hello bright red lips :P

All I can say is that all girls need their trusty go-to dresses! Do you agree? 

Ciao, readers! :)

Hang Loose

H&M Poncho, DIY shorts, Five by Five shoes,Vintage and Primark accessories

Keeping things loose and comfy for the last weekend of my summer vacation :)

I just finished my first week of school. It wasn't so bad. On one hand, I'm taking more interesting subjects in medicine now. On the other hand, interesting doesn't mean easy! I feel the stress levels rising even as I speak (or type rather :P)! Anyway, as I was saying, I spent the last weekend of my summer with my Lola in Pampanga. Honestly, visiting Pampanga puts me and my siblings in such a sedentary lifestyle. All we do is eat and sleep and eat some more! So to match, I put together a lazy outfit too :) 

For my accessories, I put on my vintage bracelet, which had a chain and a ring attached to it! It used to be my lola's but now it's with me :) I thought it would be great for this boho look. Then I wore my Aztec necklace from Primark! I looove this necklace! It was such a bargain! Finally, I used a braided headband I bought during my trip. A lot of people wondered why I went for a blonde one instead of brown or something nearer my hair color. Well, I wanted to try something else. Haha that simple of an explanation. I think I got the effect I was going for What that effect is exactly? I'm not sure either hahaha

My shorts in this outfit were a DIY project by the way! I tried to create the distressed and ombre look for this pair. Do you like it? :P

I'll leave it here for today amigos! You can checkout my Lookbook page to hype this look :)

Zip It!

Primark Bralet; Poisonberry skirt; Five by Five wedges

It's a bit tricky to wear a bralet. Especially one like this, which is backless too! Bralets just add sexiness to an outfit without even trying. Still, I had to make sure that my look wouldn't end up being trashy. I paired it with a floral skirt, which was modest enough to keep things decent :) 

This was the first time I wore this bralet...and I have to tell you, I fell in love with it immediately! Aside from the fact that I like the details and color of this piece, its best feature was how flattering the fit was. I think it can make anyone look great, as long as you pair it with the right clothes! Have you given it a try yet? :)
