Black and White

Imagine this scenario: you wake up in the morning, still groggy at first but when you have a good look at the time, you discover that you are running late. You run towards the shower, thinking of all the things you have to do before leaving the house while making sure you don't waste any more time. When you come out of the shower, you realize you have nothing to wear. Last night, instead of taking the time to plan your outfit for the next day which you usually do, you dozed off when you lay down your bed. You were never the shirt-and-jeans kind of girl so it is hard for you to leave the house not wearing your best. You exert effort in what you wear not because you want to look good but because you think it's the perfect way to express yourself. 

BUT! As in every problem, there's a solution. In times like this, you can choose to wear something that you don't have to mix and match anymore, like dresses, rompers and jumpsuits. I suggest you invest in items like these, you know, just in case you don't have enough time or you're just not in the mood to choose which bottoms will look best with your top. All you have to do is accessorize and you're done!

Sunday brunch at Cafe Breton

Last Sunday, my sister and I were craving for crepes from Cafe Breton. We ordered a Galette Super Complete and Blueberries and Cream crepe. The galette contains ham, egg, cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms and onions, basically all the things I like! This dish is highly recommended. The blueberries and cream was also good but the taste is nothing special. When we were almost done eating, we realized we were still a bit hungry so we ordered another dish. We chose the dish with the smallest serving so we had the garlic, cheese and tomatoes crepe. I'm not sure if that's what it was called. Anyway, it tasted like pizza. It was good but then there are a lot of other dishes better than this one.  Hoping to go back to Cafe Breton soon! I love spending my brunches there!

Prim and Proper

I was supposed to wear this top with shorts but figured that it can also be paired with this nude colored peplum skirt and a collar necklace for a prim and proper look.

I received this collar necklace from Twinkies Inc just last Tuesday, together with a really nice black bangle. They sell very trendy but affordable pieces so I suggest you visit their online shop. Hurry, better check out their stuff before they run out!

P.S. It was annoyingly windy when these photos were taken. So, yeah.

Classic Chic

Hi guys!

I wore this outfit to a house party but I wasn't able to have my photos taken for ze blog so when I had extra time on my hands, I wore the exact same outfit, with the exact same makeup and hairstyle and had my photos taken. I kept it simple with a simple classic top and shorts. Instead of wearing something underneath, like a a tube top for example, you can try wearing a coverup or blazer instead so as not to make it too revealing.

Tomorrow's my first day of classes! Aaaand I'm so excited! (Okay, the nerd side of me is talking!)

Don't forget to join my shoe giveaway!

Caramoan Day 2

Here are the photos from Day 2 of our Caramoan trip. I didn't have time to plan my outfits so I just packed some random tops, shorts and 'potential' coverups. When we arrived, I was panicking because I realized I don't have enough wearable clothes for the trip. In the end, I just mixed and matched the tops and bottoms I brought, and with my cousin, Anaissa letting me borrow some of her tops, I came up with enough clothes to last the whole duration of the trip. Whew! Click the button below to see more photos.

Btw, have you joined my shoe giveaway?
