Denim x Denim

Double Denim, ahh.. a trend from the 90’s, however, so many modish people think wearing a Denim on Denim outfit is a bit too much or a big NO NO, but for me, if you wore them correctly, it can look amazing!

Start out by matching different wash and colour of denims together, for example, pairing a light washed blue denim jacket or a chambray shirt with a darker colored denim short/jeans like dark blue, grey or black.

You can also add some other type of clothing with a different fabric & color aside from the denim outfit you wanted to wear. Like from the photo above, I’m wearing a nude top from Fashion Infinity Rhona underneath my denim jacket from Splatt MNL for a nice touch-up to the ensemble and you can top it all off with an amazing pair of heels for a glamorous look or a pair of sneakers for a full casual look. 

By that being said, those are the basics when incorporating denim to denim clothes. You can now rock double denim outfits!❤

Ps, what are your thoughts about denim on denim trend, yay or nay? I would also love to know how you wear them too!😊 let me know by leaving a comment below. Thank you!💘

Post Valentine’s Day: Warmth in the midst of a Cold Weather

For me, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers, it is also a holiday to celebrate the love that we feel for our family and friends who made our lives always at its best.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a girlfriend/boyfriend. We have our parents, sibling and/or our friends to go out with. It is the perfect time to show your love and appreciation to them for making a huge impact in your life. ‘Cause they’re there, through thick and thin, ups and downs, they’re always there for us no matter what.

But, there’s no denying that Valentine’s Day is also a perfect excuse for me to dress up and feel fabulous, with or without a date.

You may throw on any dress that you love, in my case, I chose to wear a formfitting dress since the weather at the location that we’ve decided to go to was a bit windy, top it off with a denim jacket from Splatt.mnl to stay warm through out the day and good thing, I chose to wear sneakers since our little adventure consisted a lot of walking. hehe.

His Perfect Plan

 

It has only been 3 months when I finally decided to start on blogging. As a newbie blogger, I always wanted to plan things first before shooting and getting all those plans done exactly the way I planned them (quite OC, right?) but recently, I have come to realize, that sometimes it is better to let go of that “perfect plan” of yours and just be ready to be surprised with an unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned (trust me).

And no matter how much we planned, the things that did happened before was the reality that was really meant to happen in the first place.

Lately, God has been teaching me to trust Him with His plans. One good example, is when we took this outfit photos. I was supposed to shoot on a different location, but something came up and we ended up at a place in Alabang. The photos weren’t what I had in mind but.. They’re even better! From the location and the lighting (we we’re just on time!) Everything’s just perfect 😄

I now learned how to let go, give my best, trust and allow God to take care of the rest – because that’s when everything will turns out perfectly better than you expected it to be.

First post for 2017: My Airport/Travelling Outfit to Iloilo

Hola Amigos! Its been a while now since my last blog post but I’m back now from hiatus in life. Maybe only a few of you might know, I flew to our province 3 weeks ago for my cousin’s wedding. My stay there was great, though felt very anxious and nervous about me travelling solo days before my flight. haha. Is it just me or does anyone else get pre-travel anxiety/nerves? Hm. Still, it was great seeing my cousins and relatives once again after so many years.

When travelling, whether via plane or through a long car, bus or train ride, I always choose to wear comfortable yet stylish outfits. It can not only help you get snuggly in your seat, help you move easily but can also keeps you looking polished right until you reached your destination.

8 Christmas Gift Ideas 2016

Yay! Christmas is just around the corner and of course, I know a lot of people now started to shop a few items under their lists. But if you’re having difficulties on coming up on that “perfect gift” to give, that shows how well you know the recipient but without breaking the bank, then this post might help you with that struggle of yours.

Today, I gathered tons of affordable gift ideas to share with you guys that would be perfect to give to your family, friends or boyfriend/girlfriend.

  1. UNCOMMON MUGS

You can never go wrong with mugs, I honestly don’t know anyone who hate using mugs. Specially, for a coffee or tea person, they’ll be thrilled on having/using this one of a very few kind of mugs. But the downside is, you can only buy these kind of mugs online.

2. SUNGLASSES

Sunglasses are useful, fun and a great gift for fashionistas. But if you’re buying someone who wears prescription glasses, don’t worry, because you could always provide them with a gift certificate, so they can get the right glasses for their eyes.

3. INSTAX WITH FILM

This stuff is so amazing! These are basically like a polaroids, take a photo and it automatically dispenses your photo. Though, this is a bit expensive, but its price is now much cheaper than before! There are also a bunch of discounts at the present, since holiday seasons are coming so you might get a great deal after all.

4. 2017 PLANNER NOTEBOOK

We all know that a new calendar year will also begin 6 days after Christmas, this could be a useful gift to your friends and you could get yourself one too! I myself planning to have one too. Hehe.

5. PORTABLE CHARGER

With the high in demand of mobile devices nowadays, you can never go wrong with those portable chargers or so we call it Powerbanks. They’re completely functional and quite cute as well. For that techie friend or family member of yours, this gift will surely be appreciated for they will be able to charge their phones whenever they are.

6. WATCH

In case you’re also looking for something to reward yourself this holiday season or a gift to give to someone, you should think about getting a watch. It is worth it, because watches can be used as an important fashion statements and they’ll love it. There are numerous local and international brands available here in the philippines to buy watches; some  of them are expensive but there are also a lot of affordable ones.

7. NAIL POLISH SETS

Yep, nail polishes will be your go-to for the nail addicts. Not only is nail polish a fun and amazing present to give, but also, its every season must have accessory. Who doesn’t want to always have that gorgeous nails on fleek.

8. DIY GIFTS

I know it was a bit cheesy and some may say it’s corni, but for me, giving someone a gift you made yourself makes it much more meaningful to them. This could definitely show how special the recipient is to you, because of the time, love and effort you spent on these gifts.

For me, when it comes to gift giving “it is the thought that counts,” it doesn’t matter how much the gift should cost, as long as it was given whole heartedly, no money or anyone else could equalizs the effort, love and thoughts wrapped in that present. But if you’re still having a hard time thinking of what could be the best gift for a certain person, don’t worry! You just have to carefully think about the receiver’s interests, needs, wants, likes and dislikes, in order to find the appropriate gift to give from the heart.

So those are the affordable gift ideas I got for you guys. I hope you did find some inspirations out of it.

Thank you for reading!❤

Fancy in florals

Last week marked the start of the new month, November! Can you believe it? Halloween has passed and now we’re fast approaching the end of the year, it just means that the festive season will soon be upon us. So before this year ends, I promised myself to try on something a bit different from what I usually wear.

Since I’ve been very inclined to wearing streetstyle/boyish outfits (view my previous posts for a bit of corroboration haha) before and can’t even remember when was the last time I wore a girly outfit, I finally managed to wear one yesterday! 😁

This gorgeous dress is so feminine and has a vintage vibe in it. In love with the prints, specially those gold florals that perfectly shines above the other floral prints. 💛 Needless to say, this dress would be perfect for any casual gatherings, semi-formals and even in the summer! You just have to know how to match them with the other items to build that concept you have.

I teamed this look with my favorite Oxfords from El Dantés and my lovely coffee brown Belladonna bag to make the ensemble looks chic and a bit more retro. Completed the look by wearing this beautiful layered necklace that I bought from Forever21.

Why black

Lately, I don’t know why but I always find myself buying more black clothes. Well, maybe it’s because I love the fact that I can still play around with it, knowing you’ll never have the trouble of mixing and matching clothes ’cause almost everything goes with black! 🙌 From pairing it to neutral colors, pastels to bright colors, still it could help you create modern and polished looks.

the awkward crossed arms pose haha!

Black really is a great color for me, it could make your outfit looks amazing, elegant and chic.

Here’s another fun fact, wearing black makes you look thinner than you usually are, so that’s a definite win-win for me since I do have a chubby stomach to hide or atleast make it less visible. Haha.

Here in this look, I matched my black highwaisted jeans that I recently bought from hazels_shoppe to a pastel pink ribbed shirt from Jukaykayatbp and paired it with my overused black converse with strawberry prints in it. To spice up the ensemble, I wore a bit of accessories and tied up my hair in a bun for a more interesting and dramatic look. And Ta-daah!
