Compared to my previous outfit post (“Wearin a High Low”), this one is pretty much lighter in mood and color! Reminds me of full bloom in springtime – fresh and free. My photos, too, were surprisingly jovial and effortlessly moving! I was turning and running around while shooting, and my clothes were flowing around me. Wish I could be as carefree and young as this forever!
This layered top is a pasalubong from my tita when she visited Japan last year, which is why the design is very much Japanese – oversized layers and hanging shoulders and all that. Aside from the lacey undershirt, I also love its cute flowery details. They look so feminine and kind of handpainted. Sweet, right?
Tops like these surprise me at times. They’re so huge but they seem to complement girls even with petite figures and not make them look like walking sticks. Good thing, or else I might’ve looked like one! Haha.
Thank you Bureau Manila for my black skater skirt! It’s my second time posting a look wearing one, and I enjoyed it both times! Definitely a versatile piece of clothing. I could wear it with almost anything. I’ve tried pairing it with a tucked-in muscle tee, and this time with a layered top, so maybe next time I’ll try sweatshirts instead. Although I think it won’t be so soon – the Philippines has been quite a huge sauna these days, hehe!
I got this skater skirt with for a really reasonable price. Check out Bureau Manila for other awesome finds! The owner is a friend of mine, and she just started selling online so please like and share her page if you have time!
Love loooove my arm band! It’s so sweetheart-ish in a royal vintagey way. Wanna know what’s cool about it? It’s like those rulers that you have as a kid, the one you snap at your wrists and instantly wrap themselves around you! I don’t have to worry about it falling somewhere. I’ve got two of this, the other one is red but with an equal sense of charm. Will show you guys soon!
Suede shoes can be hard to manage and maintain most of the time. They get dirty easily because of the texture and can be a bit tricky to clean, but they serve you well because they look kinda candy-cute, especially those in pastel colors!
This photo below is my favorite from this set. Just because I feel bliss looking at it… like I was a kid again with no care in the world. Ahhhhhhh, happy happy times. :)
How do you like my look?
