Black

Black Out

Nowadays, I opt to go for minimalist look compared to when I was younger I have tendency to go for maximalist. I don’t know if this is a sign of maturity (or ageing – whatever you call it. LOL).

Black Is One Of My Faves


When I cleaned my closet before Christmas, all I see is a sea of muted colors of black, whites and grays with sometimes hint of blues and very minimal to none for loud colors. I guess my affinity to muted colors is because of my ever changing hair colors. I promise to blog about my hair color adventures soon, so better stay tuned. Even my to-go-to colors for shoes are gearing toward grays and blacks. I really think that the streamlined Asian aesthetic influenced me to go for this style. I like how simple pieces make up interesting overall look (topped by the my light pink hair).

Hello Black

Long Line Black Top from Mint. Black Sneakers from New Balance.

Ever wonder where this wonderful place is? It is in The Alley At Karrivin in Makati City. The hidden place houses some furniture shops, flower shop, restaurant and very great coffee shop named “Writer’s Block”. I think I’ll also start blogging about my coffee adventures too?

Gray Matters Most

Gray has been my to-go-to color and it has been a constant color on my OOTDs. I know I’ve said this before that whenever I go to a store my eyes gravitates first to grays and blacks. Another reason I love picking up grays for my OOTDs is because it is one of the colors that you can easily mix and match with almost everything. If you want monotony and minimalist, pair it with black. If you want to go all out kawaii, pair it with killer colors. You can never go wrong with grays, in my own opinion.

Gray

In The Midst Of All The Colors

What is really fascinating too is that it my gray wardrobe pieces can easily coordinate with my ever changing hair color. This is a proven fact – I’ve tried pink (light and dark), purple, lilac, violet and blonde, and all those hair colors really coordinated well with gray pieces.

White Heat

White has been a staple color for the summer season. All throughout my vacation and out of towns this year, it seems that the prevailing color is white. Well quite honestly, white has been the “to go to” color for summer. Maybe because it was said to attract less heat? I really do not know but white is almost synonymous with summer.

Captured The Light

 

It is quite easy to don a white ensemble as it matches perfectly with almost all colors just like black and gray for a basic normcore look or you can match white with loud colors like pink or purple for a youthful summer look.

For this coordinate, I paired a white printed shirt with my fave color as my bottom and topped with a wide brimmed hat.

 

Staples: Black and White

Black Against The Wall

By now, you should have known that my to go to color is black. I think the last couple of OOTDs I posted have either black on it or it is an all-black ensemble. Whenever I go shopping, my brain autopilots to the blacks first then to grays and lastly to the other colors.

This is my second style post from my February vacation in Ilocos region and stay tuned to my travel diaries which are coming really soon. Going for a minimalist kawaii look which is quite a trend now on Asian Style scene.

Black and Boxy

First style post from my vacation in the province of Ilocos. I’ve been wanting to go to the Ilocos province for quite some time now but rarely has the chance maybe because of the distance from Manila or most pf my friends have already visited the province once or twice. So as part of my birthday treat for myself, I’ve decided to finally visit Ilocos. Stay tuned for my travel diaries soon.

Boxy Style

When it comed to vacation outfit, nothing beats a comfortable outfit. A short and and some t-shirt would be the usual suspects but how about we play it up a little bit.

If you been reading my blog for some time now, you have probably know my affinity with monotones. For this style post in Ilocos, I brought some of my blacks for this trip. Like I said most tourists opt to don short and t-shirt as their uniform as they ar the most comfortable when travelling (walking, visiting galleries and historocal places, etc). I’m no different, shorts and tshirt are my idea comfortable wear. The key is to be comfortable but stand out at the same time.

My all black ensemble also highlights my pink-dipped blonde hair which I’m loving now and planning to keep the entire summer.

Boxy Shirt from Penshoppe. Easy Shorts from Uniqlo. Gray Overnight Bag from Terranova.

 

Old School Backdrop Meets Modern Style

 
Don’t be afraid to wear all black on your next vacation. The goal is comfort and to stand out from the crowd of tourists. Always look the best whenever you are out and about. If black is not for you, choose what suits you best. The end goal is for you to be comfortable on what you wear without compromising your own style.

Sunshine and a Little Pink

Beach is a happy place for me. It’s as if the sands, sun and sea arr the remedy to my stressed body. What I’m planning to do is to visit as much beach destinations as possible. Who wouldn’t want to travel and enjoy the beach?

 

Beach Trip!

  

Tropicana

 

As much as I love the beach, I am not like the others who stay in the waters – swim & snorkel, do extreme water activities, etc. but instead I am more like a lazy beach bum. As in literally a bum. I just love lounging in the sands (preferrably under the shade), read a book, listen to the clashing of the waves and take a lot of picture (most of the time, of myself or my beach OOTDs).

Not to pass on a beach OOTD, my very first style post is from my very first vacation of the year, which is in Bolinao, Pangasinan. I’ll blog more about my 2nd visit in Bolinao very soon.

For this style post, I opted to wear an all black ensemble. I always believe that you will never go wrong with black. To accent the monotonous color, I brought along with me a pink Oriental cover-up which by the way matches my new hair color!
 

Nothing Short of Sunshine

 

Sleeved Top from Uniqlo. Shorts from Uniqlo. Cover-up from Cotton On. Sunglasses from Sunnies Studios.

More travel soon, I will try to top my 2015 travel diaries. I really hope so. More OOTDs and I’ll try to be a better blogger by doing more blog entries.
 

Tropics + Serenity

 

Thanks for keeping up with me and reading my online space for almost three years now. I love you all!

Hello, Beach! 👋

Black Is My Cup of Tea

Black. What comes into your mind whenever you think if this particular color? Some might think gloom but for me it’s classic, flexibility and fashion.

For me, black is classic because of the black and white films. Oh my gosh, aint they so glamorous back then wearing black head-to-toe ensemble with black fur, black diamonds and black shoes. The flapper era, everyone is just so fabulous.

Whenever I wear black, it boosts my confidence. I can’t properly explain it but I feel so comfortable with wearing black. Let’s just say that black is one of my favorite color and with an approximate percentage of 30% black in my closet right now.

For today, I wore a black ensemble. Black long sleeved, striped shirt from Maldita paired with black leatherette leggings from Una Rosa. Maldita and Una Rosa are both chain stores which showcase great designs, classic wear and majorly black pieces. To contrast the all black ensemble, I wore the Japanese inspired shoes from Rajo Laurel. Again, no accesories for today, just my Kate Spade neutral bag.

Speaking of flapper era, I really wanted to watch “The Great Gatsby”. So excited to watch it, all costume were made by no less than the Muiccia Prada. I really wonder if “The Great Gatsby” is a musical or not. Well whatever it is, I am looking forward to see the film.
