I don't know what got into me, but I've been loving the color red recently! I wore this outfit to work. It looks pretty conservative from the front but surprisingly daring at the back because of the cutouts. I thought I could make it more work-appropriate by wearing a black tube top underneath but when I got to the office, I realized that it was still a bit too daring. I hurriedly grabbed my cardigan (which was hidden in my drawer specifically for emergency cases), and was saved from an embarrassing fashion disaster!

When I saw the hot, sunny day before me I knew I would be spending it outdoors. Hey, if you're stuck in a desk five days a week, I'm sure you'd love to spend the rest of your free time outside! Yes? No? Okay, maybe that's just me. I'm the type of person who's always on the go and loves adventure -- any adventure, for that matter. It may be as simple as riding a bike or following a hiking trail at Nuvali, but the feeling of it is just priceless! :)

I have work on weekdays so it was great that the grand launch of Makeup Magazine was held on a Saturday. The first issue was released sometime last year, and I've seriously been wanting to get my hands on it ever since. Now on its fifth issue (with the lovely Jessy Mendiola on the cover!), Makeup Magazine covers everything about beauty -- from the latest fashion and beauty trends to celebrity regimens and trade secrets.

I like spicing up my office wear from time to time. Veering away from the traditional button-down-and-slacks combo, I choose to invest in different kinds of skirts, as well as blouses in neutral colors. My current favorites are white, black, cream, and brown because they can be easily incorporated into my existing wardrobe. How about you, what do you keep in mind when shopping for office wear? :)

It has always been our tradition to wear red every Chinese New Year. This year, it was on the 19th of February, but we didn't have anything planned on that day since we already celebrated the night before (New Year's Eve). I still wanted to dress up and wear something special though. For what reason? I'm not sure exactly. To kickstart the year, perhaps. So far, my 2015 has been awesome! How about yours?

This striped pencil skirt has been with me for quite a while now and I admit, I had a hard time looking for pieces to go with it because of its length. It goes past my tummy, as high as my ribcage and ends just below the knee. Imagine my surprise when I randomly paired it with this crop top and realized that the combination totally worked! It even created an hourglass silhouette, which made the look oh-so-much better!

I decided to go laid-back one work day, and came up with this outfit! Work has been extra fun so far. I'm really happy and thankful that I get to travel in my job even if I started just two months ago.
To see photos taken during these mini-business trips, check out my Instagram (@heyitsalyssayu). I'm going away again next week; it's a surprise so stay tuned!

I was trying to avoid wearing monochromatic hues to the office for a change. So when I found this cute, pink dress hanging in my closet, I immediately decided to wear it with these sky-high wedges. The wedges don't look it but they're actually six or seven inches high! They were gorgeous, but sadly I had a horrible knee pain the day after. :( Lesson learned: Never ever wear shoes with heels this high to the office!
