Rainy Days Make Me Smile

It’s another wet and gloomy day but I’m feeling fabulous nevertheless.  First, because I love the cool air that comes with the downpour, and second, just because I get a reason to wear boots out in the open  =P

For today, since I really wanted to wear and show off (cough cough) my boots, I decided to pair a cotton long-sleeve top with white shorts.  And to keep myself a little bit warmer and to help ward off the raindrops, I piled on a soft long coat and donned a knit beret.  It’s a little KPop-py look, I believe, but who cares, rainy days make me dress up and smile more  =)

Keep safe and warm, everyone!

Satin Soft

Traditionally, we’ve always heard that satin is not suitable as office wear because it has that lazy, bedroom appeal.  But as fashion evolves over time, it has taken the satin trend from the comforts of the bedroom to the hardcore office panels.  And for today, I’m taking my satin top out for a spin in the office:

Paired my satin top with a piece of pleated tweed skirt and regular black office pumps.  The contrast between satin-softness and coarse wool lends the look a bit more texture and makes the satin top a lot more dressy than your regular nighttime bedroom apparel.  Quite an interesting mix, don’t you suppose?

And that is how you dress up something that’s not traditionally suitable as office wear  =) 

Till the next post!

Simple Geometry

I’ve never been fond of geometry.  Back during my high school years, it’s one of my most dreaded subjects (together with trigonometry).  I just couldn’t seem to get the ‘plane’ hang of it, haha!!  But nowadays it’s different.  I pretty much like everything geometric….from household display items to apparel….I can’t help but salivate over its plane beauty  =) 

And that is why I couldn’t resist not purchasing this top:

The geometric print with all its planes and shapes takes my supposedly simple outfit to a different plane, don’t you think?

That’s it for today.  Keep it simple, everyone!  Much love!!

The Plunge

I’ve never had anything; never bought anything that shows ample view of my cleavage.  No plunging necklines for me, eventhough my friends always tell me that I have “k” naman ( k for karapatan).  So for the very first time, I’m taking the plunge:

This is the lowest neckline I’ve ever had.  For me, it’s already a bit too daring. But I still bought the dress nevertheless because it’s sooo sexy (thanks to its plunging neckline and sexy cutout back), and soo flirty / playful too (thanks to the skater-skirt like edging)! 

Paired my lovely dress with ankle-strap heels (which are equally lovely with its gold chunky heels) and a tassel clutch.  Accessorized with gold jewelry to give my look a bit of warmth and opulence.

So how do you like this look?  Hope it’s worth my plunge  =)

Outfit details:
Dress - Forever21
Heels - Celine
Clutch - Parisian

Earn My Stripes

Have you ever tried wearing a jumper dress to work?  I had.  Anyone got a problem with that?  I mean, whoever said that one can’t wear a jumper to the office anyway?!

Well, at least I chose a jumper dress that is suitable for office wear.  No loud prints, no flimsy fabric, and definitely no showing of too much skin!  That’s why I made sure to pair my jumper with another office classic….the long-sleeve blouse!  I chose a pinstripe pattern in monochrome to match and contrast with my plain black jumper.  It’s quite a conservative number, so it’s very office appropriate.  
Gotta get going now.  Have a good start this week!  Much love!

F*ck Off, Boyfriend

I never realized that boyfriend jeans could be so damn comfortable and so f*cking fashionable, that is, until I got myself one. 

What I love about this pair of boyfriend jeans is its floral waistband; a little femininity on a cut that’s practically loose and rugged.  And oh, I love the fact that it is high-waisted as well!  Paired it with this floral statement shirt that says “Fuck Off”!  It’s kinda brusque, I know, and that is why I decided to try to look and pose like I’m rather p*ssed, haha!  Did I get the look right?  =P

Anyways, while a pair of sneakers or loafers would do the trick of completing the look, they’re not exactly my type.  ‘Coz I for one, like to look a little feminine….and that is why I chose high heels instead.  And oh, I added a midi box bag too….para girly!  It’s actually my personal style….to have a touch of femininity to my every look  =)

So what do you think of this look?

Street Beat

I’m feeling drawn towards street style today.  Maybe it’s the effect of the Kpop music videos that I’ve been watching over the TV this morning, haha!  But anyway, here’s my street style take today:

Took out my Uniqlo houndstooth-printed leggings for a spin.  Have been dying to wear them but the weather and my work assignment hasn’t really been that cooperative, so it took some time for this one.  Paired it with a shirt that says “Never Look Back” and which has really wide cut armholes.  Kinda spunky, this shirt.  Matched my outfit with a pair of Lacoste sneakers, which have been with me like forever yet they’re still so comfy and durable!  Sulit!

And of course, what street style outfit would it be if there wasn’t a snapback cap, right?  So I got mine in this bright neon-orange color!  Now I look pretty street, don’t you think?  =)

Catch you on the next, peeps!

Number 65

I was browsing through some Korean online shops the other day and I’ve noticed that most of these sites (if not all of them) are selling Number Shirts!  Apparently, there’s a growing trend in Korea these days to look sporty.  You can actually note it too in most of their latest Kpop music videos….from baseball caps to soccer socks and rubber soles, it’s a sports fanatic haven in Korea these days  =)

And since I want to be ‘in’ on the trend, I scouted for a number shirt to call my own.  While I usually browse online catalogues, I don’t usually buy from them.  I don’t know, I’m still the traditional buyer who likes to see-touch-and-feel before making a purchase.  Besides, I’m quite the thrifty buyer, so I definitely love bargains.

So yesterday, I spotted a number shirt that I like and brought it home for some few outfit inspiration shots.  So here is my blog’s #lotd (look of the day):

Paired my gray & white number 65 shirt with white shorts for consistency.  Threw in a pair of charcoal gray thigh-high socks with my sneakers and Adidas cap for that sporty look.

So whatcha guys think of this look?

Mind Game

You know what my shirt reminds me of?  Inkblots.  Yes, for some reason, I think that the diagram on my shirt looks much like an inkblot figure.  Perhaps it’s the way the dots are formed, or perhaps my  mind is just messing up with me, haha!

So anyway, I decided to wear a black sleeveless crochet underneath my inkblot shirt instead of my usual bandeau top.  The crochet inner that I had on gave my top a bit more texture, and don’t you just adore those V-cut ends?  I do!  And just so that those ends are displayed prominently, I hiked up my shirt and knotted it  =P

Paired my top with denim shorts and mustard-colored cork wedges, and hooked up a cap unto my belt holder.  Threw all my essentials into my trusty black satchel and I’m off for the day!

So, how do you guys like this look?  I hope it’s not playing with your mind  =)

A Layer Of Sweetness

I don’t have a taste for sweets.  Ever since a kid, I’ve always turned down candies / desserts offered to me.  Yes, I know, I’m weird.  But while I may not have any sweet tooth, I’m pretty much a sweet girl naman (kung hindi galit, haha!) and often times I go for sweet choices / picks like this one:

The tiered top I have on reminds me of a layer of inverted cupcake foils, haha!  And since it’s such a sweet-looking top, I acted cutesy for this outfit shot  =P

It’s a rather simple getup (top + shorts + heels + bag); with just a little jewelry for today.  I made sure of that so that I wouldn’t drown out the sweetness of my top  =)

So there you have it ~ a little layer of sweetness to go =)  Hope you all have a nice day today!  Much love!
