Today marks the last day of the love month and no matter how predictable it may seem that I've worked today, let me tell you that if you're taking risks and sacrifices doing what you really love and sharing that passion to the people that matter most to you, you are an inspiration of love. According to my teacher during my 7am class earlier; life is about sacrifices. Even though she was uplifting every student in the classroom talking about grades and our last push for the finals, I knew she linked that with everything that life is really about and she was definitely right. No matter how little that sacrifice is as long as its very important to you go for it, keep trying and working. After all, there's nothing much worse than feeling guilty and regretful just because you didn't did the best you could right? Love is about sacrificing too. This is quite deep for an intro but one of my closest friend in college lost her father just few hours ago and because she's like a sister to me, I really want to share her pain even just half of it if only I could so that she wouldn't feel so loaded. Her elder sister asked me to accompany her at her place (since she's not from Cebu) and asked me to tell her the sad news at the same time and I had no idea where and how to start. It was all new to me and it's clearly not easy. Nevertheless, I've learned so many things despite this very busy day and this is just the highlight of it. I hope you learn something today too wherever you may be, reading this post.

Moving on, one of the things I love about being a blogger is showing the world how much our economy has grown and appreciate our talented countrymen especially the ones who produce products from our very own resources. If you've been following this blog or my social media accounts then I'm sure you've witnessed how much I love Abby Jocson's bags. If you haven't heard of her yet, read here. I have quite a collection of her designs already and since she started releasing her Valentine collection last year with a quilted heart bag (worn here and here), her different take with this year's Courtney still kept me in awe! Because of that, I decided to mix dainty and classy through my favorite Just G dress which I wore as top and this pastel pink skirt from What A Girl Wants. If I had a date over exams last February 14, this would've been my outfit but I'm more than glad to be of help if you're running out of date outfit switch ideas.

What do you think about my look?

Youthful Squares

Have you ever been so busy in school or in life and thinking about so many things to do even after classes/work and you just can't wait for the day you can get some well deserved R&R? To all the students and working girls reading this post, cheers if you find relaxation in dressing up and having to be finally out of our cranky uniforms! My current class schedule gets me so busy especially on Fridays and Saturdays and last week was just so stressing that when Sunday came, I decided to get out and play! Thankfully, it was all sunny and bright just the perfect time to wake up early (since I really hate to be up early on gloomy days, who's with me?). Making the most out of the perfect day, I decided to finally wear this GTW by SM gingham top that I've been keeping for months now, simply keeping the youthful vibe because that's actually what gingham fabrics are for and I'm glad to have had this right time and moment in life that I could actually wear them. If you ever curiously thought about the difference between gingham and plaid, gingham always have perfect equal squares composed of two colors and one of them is always white while plaid is plainly the opposite! Gingham is made for the young and one of the few staples that never go out of style. I just shared to you a little fashion history there and I hope you realize that you should start wearing one while you're at it!

Who said you can't wear glitters at daytime? These Keds X Kate Spade NY sneaks are the bomb and should be worn any time of the day! My hair even looked like I colored it but the strong heat of the sun did that, I guess its easier finding the right hair color that suits you through this method. lol!

Own It

This is how single ladies should dress up on Valentine's Day, not that I'm bitter but let's just say this look can be catchy enough and who knows you'll get a date for the day! lol! Kidding aside, monochromatic looks are good staples when in doubt and I do love dressing up in one. Red monochromatic looks have been styled in so many ways lately but mostly in the sleek and chic way which I would love to pull off at the right time and age. Sadly at times, we're seeing so many new styles season per season and we want to pull off our faves yet we tend to forget how to dress our age and end up looking like we're trying too hard! Today, I'll show you how to pull off one of the most popular monochrome looks around the blogosphere perfect for teenage girls and young adults in their early 20s! Sleek looks usually composes double-breasted blazers or any formal outerwear, a good pair of trousers and heels so I did a little alterations and changes to that like this cashmere blend cardigan, and high-waisted shorts keeping it age appropriate like that!

White sneaks always give an instant laid back-comfort effect and it keeps the look wholesomely young and fresh! Since its back to bipolar weather this week, you can easily take off the cardigan when it gets humid, I did the same after all the errands for the day.
