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).

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 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.
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.

Since, I kind of said it this post that I almost tried all sort of colors, please stay tuned for my next entry to know more how I get those funky, kawaii and pastel hair colors. Details really soon (I promise!)
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.

Please watch out for the first entry from my Summer Diary series this year coming very soon. So watch this space! I think you might have guess where the first destination is?
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.
