Two Ways

POTATO My, my.. how we have a lot of catching up to do! I haven’t been entirely consistent with blogging, which I promised I would do at least 3 to 4 times a month, due to other priorities. But I really hope I get to do this more often. I miss sharing my looks and just writing in general! No matter, I shall squeeze in an entry as much as I can! I have so much backlog just waiting to be shared. For the past three months that I haven’t been blogging, I have been to Cebu City and to so many parties and beaches every weekend! But before I share all of that, let me, for the meantime, show you how to wear a very basic outfit in two ways. I’m a working girl and I ain’t getting any younger! Being in your mid-twenties is a constant struggle to stay young and mature at the same time. This struggle also applies with one’s personal style. It’s like, as you get older, you second guess all your previous wardrobe choices and you ask yourself if it’s still “okay” to wear your favorites today. But it’s a good thing basics are here to stay! You can always transform a plain grey shirt and a plain black pencil skirt to whatever look you want to achieve! I only styled this look in two ways: Smart/Sophisticated Casual and Sporty Chic. But I believe there are infinite ways to change it up. Look #1: Smart/Sophisticated Casual I just threw in a few of my favorite gold accessories, wore these black ankle strap heels and...

Not So Basic

POTATO There’s really nothing much I can say about this #OOTD other than it was the easiest thing to wear on a lazy Sunday afternoon. A basic shirt dress is every girl’s best friend especially in moments when your sister wakes you up from that sweet afternoon nap of yours and invites you to go to the mall with her. And who are you to say no? Still a little dazed from my afternoon dreams, I got my sleepy ass off of my bed and rushed to get this basic shirt dress. Surprisingly, the outfit I put together didn’t turn out to be the most basic of them all! Hope you guys like it!

Sparkle

POTATO The best way to welcome the month of August is with a lot of sparkle. And I found a way to do just that with this silver cut-out, bodycon dress from People are People. I finally had the chance to wear this beauty in our disco-themed midyear party at work. It was the perfect piece to be in to dance the night away! I was so excited for this party because not only did I have the perfect dress for it, but also because I have the perfect hair for the theme! I had my used-to-be bob haircut permed a month ago and I have no regrets whatsoever! Looking at my previous blog posts, it’s funny how I easily change hairstyles. I could have more than two hairstyles in a year! I had a pixie cut with bangs back in December 2015, had a short bob which eventually became a longer bob until I decided to have it permed. My hair just grows really fast which kind of changes my mood about it. But I really love my 80s inspired curly hair now because I dont have to do much. I can also style it differently. In this case, i teased it a little bit to acheive big and unruly curls. Anyway, enough hair talk and back to this #OOTD. So, I chose to style this one-of-a-kind dress with silver accessories and with these black, transparent-heeled strappy sandals. I absolutely loved walking in these babies! It was undoubtedly a fun night. Wondering when I’ll be able to dress up like this again. Hope you guys liked this look! By...

Summer Hangover

POTATO The month of June has ended but not the rainy season. And yet here I am still filling up my blog with summer #OOTDs and summer photographs. It most certainly cannot be helped considering we live in a tropical country! No matter how long the rainy season drags on, the beautiful beaches will still remain and the sandy shores of Samal Island will always be a place to be reckoned with! For this summer #OOTD, I wanted to show you guys another way to dress the part. Maxi skirts and dresses, shorts, rompers, palazzo or harem pants are some of our most loved pieces when we’re out by the pool or the beach. But who says denim on denim looks can’t have their time in the sun too? This chambray skirt from Forever 21 was the perfect match for a denim jacket. I threw in some of the usual summer colors: a floral blue bikini that I used as a cropped top and white strapped sandals for a really cool tropical effect. I also wore my favourite navy blue cap and brought this colourful Vera Bradley sling bag with me for a pop of personality! And if I may say so, the Vera Bradley sling bag is really one of the best sling bags that exist in this world! I mean, it’s really small but the compartments of this bag are so well-thought of and were really put in the right places. I can fit so much stuff in it including my summer essentials like my sunglasses and sunscreen! I really enjoyed my time in the sun with this #OOTD. Sometimes the...

Photo Diary: Leticia By the Sea

POTATO It’s Thursday once again and here’s my #throwback blog post – slash – photo diary to when my colleagues and I spent a wonderful day just almost three weeks ago at Leticia by the Sea, a resort in Samal island. Lately I’ve been going to the beach a lot and it’s such a wonderful feeling to be out there in the sun, feeling the sand (and occasionally seaweed) on your toes, and getting seriously splashed or washed out by big waves. I’m always grateful for days at the beach. It makes me realize how much I’ve been missing spending all those days being lazy at home or stressed at work. Days like these are forever priceless. Leticia by the Sea is a hidden paradise located all the way in Talicud island – one of the most beautiful parts of Island Garden City of Samal. It is also one of the many private owned resorts with white sand beaches and turquoise waters. Getting there might take a while – an hour if I may say – but it’s worth it. I felt like I was far from Davao and that I flew to a different place to spend the last days of summer. Trust me, this resort is really just beautiful! My Leticia by the Sea photo diary starts NOW: I’m no photographer, but I hope you guys enjoyed going through my photos as much as I did taking them!
