Last Thursday I attended SM Aura + Forever 21′s VIP opening. I was amazed with SM Aura’s architecture; pretty elegant compared to other SM malls! Sarah Jessica Parker was there and luckily I was able to catch sight of her (a lot of people crowded her during her interview) Anyway, Aura’s F21 has a leveling of two floors! Much more shopping, yes? My highlight of the day was approaching Camille Co and, to my surprise, have her instanstly say “Bea!!!” and make me beso (cheek to cheek) when she saw me. Glad that she still remembers me! We got to have a brief conversation before we headed to our shopping.

I’m obviously taking in the casual too literally but since it was a F21 event I wore this to then it’s accepted. And a certain event always calls for a F21 attire which also reminds me how I’m a modern take of the wild west. On another note, besides getting passerby stares whilst shooting which I’ve grown to ignore (blogger duties!) I had a pretty good time. More on the event on my next blog post!

I’ve been itching to get my hands on Boy London shirts. Thankfully (for both me and my wallet) it was given to me as a gift! I know I’ve been dressing so lazily–blame the heat for that. But I do have to say I’m loving the casual. We have to admit that not everyday is like we’re off to the runways.. well, for most of us especially students. Sometimes throwing in a tee, shorts and some kicks is good enough

The summer’s heat has transcended me back to the days I dressed all cutesy and vintage inspired. Back when I loved pairing floral skirts with my oxfords. Although I’ve grown out of it, there’s still a spot of it left in me. Of course I’ll forever be inspired by all things vintage. So here’s a laid back summer look that’s bound to keep you fresh all day! Gotta love overalls!

Whenever I need some fashion inspo, it all goes down to editorials. May it be in the artfully styled ensembles, effortless poses or amazing background scenes; it leaves me in the same impression I have with art. I’m specifically drawn to ones with a peculiar yet dignifying feel. So instead of keeping an amount of photos in my files, I decided to share with you some editorials. And here are my current favorites! I’ve been lusting over geometric, floral and all those crazy prints especially in a light tone. I love how it looks like it came straight from a painting. Light wash denims and laces are perfect additions to your spring-summer closet as well.
Canal boxy shirt, Seven Confessions skirt, Call it Spring boots (Hype this look on LOOKBOOK.nu)
You probably think how absurd I am wearing this outfit knowing how the Philippines is becoming a sauna lately. Then yes, it’s completely ridiculous. I really wanted to wear this skirt and the only thing that matched it was either this boxy tee or a velvet long sleeve (I’m not that insane to opt for a longsleeve) Thankfully this shirt was thin but the heat was still unbearable so I had to put my hair in a bun. I don’t know if you’re cringing at me right now but hey! I just had to go against comfort because I live by “dressing up” on my birthday. And it being my birthday I decked myself in my fave combo, black and gold!
Clad Shop top, DIY distressed jeans, ALDO ring (Hype this look on LOOKBOOK.nu)
With summer and its ongoing intense heat, it has been making me dress so lazily. I opted for a laid back look for a casual day out. You can never go wrong with a top, jeans and sneakers combo. Speaking of my top, I really love the fit and retro pop art with “paint splatters” design. Overall I look like some indie artist but on the contrary, I am a fan of indie art and art itself.
I also had the best ramen at Ramen X! Read: delicious ramens under budget friendly prices. They also serve spicy ramens which I, being the spicy lover, immediately had to order one! Have a happy weekend everyone!
