Dark Elegance

I believe this is my longest backlog this year or could be the longest I felt, one reason why I'm starting this post off with this very dramatic shot. Something you don't always see in this blog though I'm still working on a perfect shot, this was the closest one I had after the time consuming twirls I did. lol. Anyhoo, I do think that my very few loyal readers deserve an explanation on what I went through the past few weeks so let me make this quick- I had an enrollment for second semester (I'm pretty sure you already know how this went) and my schedule's all new to me and I've been adjusting to it up to now (insert blogger work of course), I got sick for about a week and then there's too many studying going on already but don't get me wrong. It's not like I don't prioritize this passion too and yes, I do miss it as much as you do. But did you know I try to catch up on Instagram if I can't make it through this blog? Its like my blogger life saver! lol. 

Now that I'm more than happy to be back, let's move on. My favorite season will always be spring and summer but what helps me not loving fall any less is surely the elegance of its hues especially when combined like what I did in this Sunday outfit. Rust and emerald green are my favorites and because they're both effortlessly boho and grand, I didn't mind stacking up.

Fall may be gloomy and a bit freezy but there's really something to look forward to it. Hope you had a great Sunday!

Sparkle Up Basics

There are countless ways to pull of the basic white tee and the classic black and white combination and I personally don't think they can get mainstream. Let's just say we all have different events and errands to be done or look forward to every single day, so I always assume there's an interesting story behind a person wearing any of these classics and basics every time I see one. In my case on today's post, I wore this ensemble when I had a lunch date with my sister. My sister and I have a totally different schedule during weekdays and we barely hang out together alone because we find ourselves at home whenever we get to have a break and that's probably the only time we get to stay longer at home one reason why I'm in the most basic ensemble you could ever see. I wanted to be comfortable enough but really, I was also kind of in a hustle bustle that day. Lol! Anyhoo, if you want to take a stand out spin on these, I'd suggest you add embellishments, gold layering hence my accessories or sequins like this clutch! Now does it look sophisticated already?

I'm sure you've noticed my DIY watch from Swap. I've featured it couple times on instagram and I'm glad enough they've extended this awesome opportunity! You can get yours in two ways now, through Swap's website and Tomato. All you have to do is create an account first, add the Swap DIY on your tote (the very first watch with the DIY photo on it), pick the color of your Swap watch strap, finish your shipping and payment details, confirm your order, get notified via email once they receive your order and send them the photo you want on your watch via email and you're pretty much good to go!

La Vie Parisienne

Greeting you all smiles at this late hour! Although its still sunny and bright at the other parts of the world, sure there's no time limit for sharing a smile isn't it? I could already strongly feel fall season across the globe but closer through social media which explains why I'm wearing some of my favorite fall pieces, which by the way are two of my first purchases from H&M last year and unbelievably so fast almost a year after, our very first H&M flagship opened! Aaahmazing how time flies! Not to mention, I'm really really looking forward to go to Manila. It's been quite a loooong time since I've been there and I'm super certain there's soooo many new things to try and check out! (I'm sure all the "oooo's" explained enough lol). Moving on, when I heard about the new La Vie Parisienne I finally had the guts to give it a try much credits to my good friend who've been hanging out here couple times since it opened. Now I know you guys are pretty much familiar with this place already since its been one of the popular places to visit here in my hometown but I'd be honest enough to admit its my first time to be here. I know!! What took me so long, right? But other than that, I thought it was also the perfect timing, less people + perfect weather for my fall season outfit! So let me leave you here enjoying the stunning new La Vie and even more at night when all these huge curve balls are lit up. 

Are you having some "ooooh's" and "aaah's" moment right there? Well to those who've seen this for the first time like myself, I might add. lol! Scroll down for more of that!

What are your thoughts about it?
