Have you ever impulsively bought something you ended up not using at all? This has happened to me on a number of occasions. As much as I would like to justify why I bought them in the first place, there is no hiding that sometimes, it's just one of those "I-may-need-it" moments. Weak as it may be, I give in. Later on, it gets given away instead.

I was beginning to think it would be the same for this Lorde dress which was an impulse buy as well, seeing as it was only PhP300. At the time, I wanted an easy white dress and I liked Lorde, so I went with it. Two weeks later, and after several tries at thinking about how to wear it, I couldn't quite crack the code and was beginning to think about selling it or giving it away.

Then it hit me--I figured out how to wear it. Now it has become one of my favorite casual dresses. And what a steal it was! I guess impulse buys aren't so bad sometimes. ;)

Weekend Wardrobe


My weekends are normally reserved for running errands and quick meet-ups with friends. But even with only those at hand, I still like to feel dressed up. Who says comfort can't come with style? For my weekend wardrobe, one of my favorite match-up is a plain top and a pair of jeans. It doesn't necessarily have a ring to it, but if you add some bling, you can definitely kick your casual style up a notch and make it seem like you've put more thought in dressing up than you actually did.

Today's weekend wardrobe formula consists of: a vintage box top (with shoulder pads, too!) + a pair of distressed light-washed jeans from Folded & Hung + my brother Alex subbing as photographer for the blog today! Yay! 

What's your typical weekend wardrobe?

3 Tips On How to Pick Floral Pieces That Will Last Through Seasons


The floral print is a print that is quickly associated with summertime--for obvious reasons. Now, if you are a floral print kind of gal and are looking to hoard a ton of it this coming summer season, you might want to think ahead about how you can also use these pieces when summer ends. It's quite easy to get this right when you know what you're looking for. So before you fill your cart up with brights and lights, here are some tips to get you through the floral fiesta and have you enjoy wearing these clothes even after the summer season.

1. Go for small to medium sized floral prints.

Summer is all about bold colors and bold prints. But if you want something that can transition better through seasons, go for the small to medium sized floral prints. These are much easier to tone down and match with other season's staples or must-haves.

2. Color is key.

Find a floral piece that has a dark-toned base. You will find that pieces with base colors like yellow, pink, blue, or any other bright tone, makes it appear more "summer-y" than pieces with base colors like navy blue, burgundy, or even black. However, that isn't to say that you can't wear floral prints on black base during summer either. They are simply more versatile.

3. Think of the styling possibilities.

This tip goes the same for any other piece of clothing you are shopping for. Be practical and always think about how you will be styling the clothes you are thinking about buying given what you already have in the closet before making the commitment. It will help you decide and narrow down your choices so that you end up with the ones you can get the most use out of. A bang for the buck!

Casual Friday Joggers


Sometimes, I take casual Fridays too seriously and show up in my pajama... I kid. But I have been feeling so at home with joggers that I've actually noticed the increasing presence of them in my closet. Sometimes I even forget when I got them! It's funny (but totally worth it). Its loose style allows for much movement without skimping on coverage, since it does still get quite cool during this month.

For an equally slouchy match, I pulled out an oversized white button-down from my mom's closet. These two pieces together on their own create for a totally casual look--but one could still go in two directions for this: casual or put-together. And as you all know, my personal style still hinges on twisting outfits to add a little bit of class or sharpness to it.

The trick to wearing loose/slouchy outfits is finding the right balance so that it doesn't appear like the clothes are wearing you as opposed to you wearing your clothes. Had I worn flats, I would have looked like my clothes were eating me. Adding a bit of heel height to the whole look elongates my body and balances out with the looseness of the clothes, creating a more chic end result.
