Now and 5 Years Ago


Do you get those mornings when you wake up and think that you just want to try on something different? This was one of those mornings. Contrary to my now more subtle and structured style, I decided to take a stab at a more playful and young outfit.

I don't remember the last time I dressed this way, but I'm pretty sure I did some 4-5 years ago when I was still in my early years of blogging and still trying to "discover my personal style". It was a fun start! I remember trying on different trends and actually going crazy with my outfits at one point. I suppose a lot of us who love fashion have gone through different style extremes to find a style that they are fully comfortable with. Ah, fashion, I will always love you.

Funny how I woke up thinking I'd dress up in something "different"--apparently different could also mean "me, five years ago". Times have certainly changed. How much different do you dress up now from 5 years ago? :)

Something Old, Something New


Something old, something new, something borrowed and blue. That basically sums up the look I wore to the office the other day. Because on days when I feel like I'm short on outfit ideas, I turn to my mom's closet to find a piece I could work a whole look around. That being said, I ended up (borrowing and) pairing her denim button-down skirt with this old turtleneck I had lying around my own closet; threw on these new sneakers from Copper (P295) for a youthful touch, et viola! Problem solved.

After months and months of having an insane schedule, I'm just glad to have two consecutive weekends of just lounging (okay, semi-lounging because my I can't get my workaholic ass to sit down and relax) at home. I started to de-clutter my room again, as things always start to pile up whenever I don't make a conscious effort to look through the things I have. Plus, I also got a couple of things from the mall done. 

There are still lots of things to be taken care of, but I'm happy to have crossed out a few already.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Love and light.

Because White


I'm not sure if you can tell, but we shot these photos on a gloomy day. It was raining a bit when we decided to venture out to find a spot to shoot at, and after a few minutes of walking around, we found one that was covered--not only that, the restaurant also switched their lights on inside around this time, which gave us some pretty cool bokeh going on in the background. Talk about timing!

Can you guess where this is?

Times like this call for the comfiest of comfy! Aside from loving white whenever I'm feeling blah (and practically any other mood I'm in, because WHITE), it also gives off an effortlessly polished vibe whenever I'm having difficulty dressing up. Even in just some jeans and boots, the crisp-looking top gave a whole different vibe to what would have been a really casual outfit. Try it out for yourself! :)

Florals for Fall


Floral prints are so quickly associated with the summer season. There is no question that when it comes to summer, it's all about color and fun, bright prints. But if you're one of those who fancies florals and would like to take this print with you as you enter a new season, don't fret! You can still wear florals transitioning into fall/winter. All you have to do is choose the right design and color.

During summer, we focus on bright and loud prints. And as we transition into fall/winter, the color palette of our wardrobe becomes more subdued or darker. So, when it comes to transitioning your floral fixation from summer to fall, take cue from that and choose floral prints in more neutral shades or on darker fabric, like this dress from Copper. Similarly, I've noticed that the floral prints are actually larger; just take a look at these pins on Pinterest!

So, even as we've bid see you later to summer now, there are still some trends that may transition well into the new season, given a different shade and/or design. :)
