Trends to Love ❤

I've been seeing trends on different  social sites and blog, from neons to pastels, they are everywhere. And I thought I'd show you guys the ones I love and who knows, I might be seeing you rocking these trends on your own.( Yap a random post to cover up the lack of an outfit post.)

1. One of my favorite trend right now  is Pastel. I just feel that whether it is in your dress, shirt or even your shoes,  it instantly transforms an outfit into this sweet and romantic vibe. Actually it depends in your accessories because you can also incorporate pastels into an edgy outfit. It is all up to you on how you wear it. 

2. Another big trend on colors right now are Neons.  Since color blocking have been a trend since last year, i believe the fashion world is taking color blocking into the next level, and that is through neons. I know they are not everybody's cup of tea, but it's good to try new things once in awhile right?

3. I know trends may come and go, but I think this one right here is going to stay, or at least I hope it would stay. Items with lace and crochet  are such classic pieces. When I'm wearing one I just like to act all prim and proper. Not that I don't act like that everyday, well okay I don't,  LOL.

4. I believe this trend is not new to you. Many celebrities here in the Philippines are wearing high-low skirt or high-low dresses non-stop. I don't blame them because  high-low skirts makes every outfit dressy, which is a good thing I believe. Many of you might think that " I'm short, and high-low skirt looks awkward on me" well, in my personal opinion, I believe that everyone can wear high-low skirts it is all about the confidence and how you carry yourself.

 5. High-waisted skirts/shorts! I'm in love with these. Due to the extreme hotness here in the Philippines these babies are my savior. It can keep you warm without sacrificing to be fashionable. So if you don't have a high-waisted shorts/skirt yet better grab now! But if you are afraid that these trend won't stay that long and you're thinking you can't wear them anymore. My advice is grab a pair of denim high-waisted shorts because i consider them as a clothing essential/ classic piece.

6. Even when Polka dots are not yet a trend, I already worshipped this print. I just feel right when I'm wearing polka dots.  And I might say  these are not considered as a trend instead it is a classic piece every girl should have in their wardrobe.

7. These trend is a little bit on the adventurous side. The cut outs require big guts. But since it is seriously hot here in the Philippines out of desperation many Filipinos/Filipinas will love these trend. And right now I'm loving it since I found my first Item, which is the dress I showed you in my recent outfit post( or should I say My only outfit post, For now!)

8. Okay, okay , no judging. With the right pieces bustiers can be classy and appropriate. Well look at that, it is again perfect for the tropical weather of our country. I first liked and saw this trend on Selena Gomez, I might not wear these the way she wore it but it still satisfies my style.   


Well that is it! Now let us move on to the trends on accessories. What's an outfit without accessories, right?


1. This is my all-time favorite trend,  accessory-wise. It suits my style perfectly. Collars made a big come back this year and last year. There are now different styles and types of them, there are peter pan collars, collars with studs, collar necklaces, and many more. But if you ask me, peter pan collars are my favorite. They are just adorable!

2. Okay, my style is not all sweet and girly like many of you might think. I like to be edgy from time to time. And when that time comes studs, skulls, and crosses are my go to accessories. And is it just me or spikes, studs and skulls are cute now adays. That is what I love about fashion, it  surprises me( In a good way).

3. Let us not forget about the shoes. Loafers are one of those classic pieces that goes with almost everything.It is not as fashionable as heels but at least you are comfortable and cute.( I haven't found my own pair of these though.)

4. Okay so if you are still reading this super long entry, I thank you ( Bravo!).

 I know what you are thinking "I can't pull that off I'm not Lady Gaga" the thing is Lady Gaga is not the only one whose pulling off crazy glasses now adays. Celebrities, bloggers, and even average people can pull of these trend. Well specifically this cat eye shaped sunnies. They are just a tad bit different on our regular wayfarers and bug sunnies. And when you stare closely to it, it can be is classy and at the same time glamorous.

Whew! Whoa! How long is that. Well better have something than nothing at all. Well, I hope this helped you. But if not this will just serve as an update on what is in this season and the seasons to come.

Comment what's your favorite trend below.

Everything Lady-like

Atlast! My first ever outfit post is on its way(Squeeeeee! Okay, I need to collect myself). I'm so excited to share to you guys what I wore on a wedding last saturday.  I am the maid of honor and took advantage of the fact that I wore make up and a fixed hair (But when i took the shots my make up is kind of washed out and my hair is not that visually pretty anymore). Enough with my ramblings and onto my outfit.

I'm not really A dress person, but I'm trying to love them because they look so pretty. And now that I'm starting to love them I wore one to a wedding. But this is one, is not just any ordinary dress.  

The features of this dress are to die for. It has this opening at the back that makes it a 100% more adorable. The print is just amazing. And one more thing, I'm obsessed with its silhouette. This dress can't get any better.

Dress: Thrift Store Collar necklace: Girl Shoppe

Satchel: Thrift Store   Ring: JellyBean

For Accessories I went with a satchel bag. I fell in love with this bag, because I like the writing in it which says "Le Bag", and weirdly I don't know why. The ring just adds with the lady-like theme of the outfit.

Shoes: Parisian

 The cheesy walk away pose(kuha ba?).

I really don't know why I'm holding a balloon. Trying to have some tumblery shots I guess, haha. 

My first OP ends here. And when I upload the 2nd one I think it will be on Manila. Because I'm going to COLLEGE! Woot! Woot!

How To Wear: Peter Pan Collars

Since I haven't posted in the past few days, I have this urge to post today. I remembered that I posted a video on my Youtube channel about how to wear peter pan collars. And  I know that not all of you are fond of watching youtube videos that is why I'm going to feature that idea here today.

1. Layering

Dress: Thrift store  Top: Thrift store  Belt:  Dorothy Perkins  Bag: Thrift store

You might not notice or you might, but I am actually wearing a dress. I layered the peter pan-collared dress under a mustard top and it kinda look like I am wearing a skirt under a top, nice huh? I cinched my waist with a black skinny belt to give my body more definition. And who says, black and brown don't go together? I believe that a black and brown combination screams CLASSINESS and so I went with a tiny brown satchel.  For my shoes I went with black oxfords because personally, I think peter pan collars together with oxfords is so classic.

 This way of wearing peter pan collars is so practical.  Because,  you bought something that you can wear in so many ways.

2. Collar on Collar
Top: Thrift store Shorts: Thrift store Bag: Thrift store  

Necklace: Girl Shoppe

I first saw this look on  Tricia Gosingtian, one of the Bloggers that I really look up to. From a far view, it looks like the collar of the shirt has embellishments but the truth is your just wearing a collar necklace.

Through the collar necklace you can make all your clothing items look like they have collars, which for me is a very good thing.

3. Cardi

Top: Greenhills Short: Thrift store  Cardigan: Thrift store

Here is a closer look of the top.

Oxford shoes: Forever 21

In this look, I showed you how you can incorporate your peter pan-collared items with another clothing item. The combination of the top with the cardigan is all out cuteness. What I did with the cardigan is, i rolled the sleeves which I think adds a little bit of cuteness in the outfit. I finished of the look with a beige pair of oxford shoes. 

So, That is it for today. I think I will be making this a series. Every now and then I'm going to feature a trend and show you guys How to wear /How to style them.
