Fine, maybe I should stop saying that I'd post more often than I used to. Pft. So sorry, dolls! I'll try my best, though. :) Now, let's move on to my outfit. I wore this last week when my family and I went to Eastwood. My dad and my brother watched Die Hard while my mum and I, plus the baby, of course, hung out at Caffé Bene, a newly opened Korean coffee house. Loved the place! Anyway, this look is perfect for times like those. Feeling like a model-slash-Hollywood celebrity off duty again! Harhar.

I love the effortless and edgy but at the same time, stylish vibe the tartan print and combat boots combo achieved! You see, tartan, or plaid, just never goes out of style. I've actually had this top for years and I still get to wear it once in a while. What do you think of this look?  ;-)

No sneaks, just wedges!

Hey, loves! Before anything else, I'm so sorry to keep you guys waiting! It's been a week since I last posted something here and it's 'cause I've been too busy at work plus I got really sick last Friday. :( I'll do my best to post more often than I used to, though, so don't worry! ;-)

Now let's move on to my outfit earlier today! Last month, I received these Pill wedges I won from Kryz Uy's blog giveaway. When I first saw 'em, I immediately thought of two things to pair them with: skinny jeans and shorts. The latter's screaming for summer! Gah, can't wait!! This time though, I wore 'em with jeans since we'd go to Church. I chose a top which matches the color of the wedge.

For my accessories, I stuck with the neutral palette and opted for gold ones. I finished off the look with my Gucci bag. What do you loves think? ;-)

The heat is on!

Hey, loves! I'm pretty sure, I'm not the only one who can already feel the summer heat! The holidays are long gone and so is the cool weather (in the Philippines, at least!). That means summer is just a few months away! Who's excited for the beach?! I know I am! ;-) Anyway, the weather now calls for my favorite: shorts! I love wearing shorts 'cause they're too versatile. Now, I went for the laid back-slash-lazy look (again) and wore a pair of high-waisted ones paired with a loose shirt and my favorite, wedge sneakers!

What I love when I am wearing high-waisted shorts is that it gives the illusion that I'm taller that I am. And the wedge sneakers? The real thing: added height! Ha, I really am taller! These two combined is something a 5'2" like me needs! Haha.

What The Bag Does

The top I'm wearing here is one of those pieces I've had for a long time but never had the chance to share to you guys. Now that I do, I wore it with black leggings (worn as tights) and my Aldo booties. What I love about it's aztec print is that it's not your typical aztec. There's something different about it, though I can't tell what exactly. Maybe it's the swirls which look like S's! My studded leather bag made the entire look edgier. That's what it ever does to my outfits! That's why it's my all-time favorite bag! ;-)

Red, Black, and White

Here's another outfit worn to work! Red, black, and white. I believe there's no other color combination that's more classic than this! It's my favorite as well 'cause you can never go wrong with this combo. The piece that I like best from this outfit though is the striped top. The print added more character to the entire look.

Also, instead of wearing my black watch, I wore my gold Casio watch to give a little contrast to the colors I'm wearing.

Don't you just love what necklaces like this can do to your outfits? Earlier this week, I wore something really simple to work -- just a plain top, skinny jeans, ballet flats, and my Longchamp. The necklace, however, dressed the outfit up a bit. I didn't need to accessorize more. It was already enough to make a statement. I just put on my gold Casio watch which matched the gold chains of the lovely necklace to finish my look and voila!

What  do you think, loves? ;-) Did you love the necklace?! Go check out Skön PH's Facebook page or Instagram account (@skonph) and you just might find the perfect handmade accessories for you! Also, did I mention that their accessories are too affordable?! :)

Here's another one of my lazy day outfits! Last night, I found this sheer heart top in my closet. I realized I haven't worn it for ages so I decided to wear it today. Hearts! Can you feel the love? Can you, can you? Because I can! It's actually my parents' 23rd anniversary today so that top is just perfect. Plus Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Haha. Anyway, back to my outfit. I believe there's no better way to wear this top than pairing it with tights/leggings. I completed the outfit with my wedge sneakers that I love so much. I know some of you are tired of seeing 'em in my posts but I'm not giving it a break anytime soon so forgive me! ;))

Silver and Denim

Three days ago, I felt like wearing my wedge sneakers again. Good thing I had work the following day! Whenever I'm gonna wear this pair, it's a given that my look would be laid back and effortless (Or not! Maybe it's just my personal style. ;-) ). This time, I wore it with my denim button-down top (which you've probably seen herehere, and here) and leggings, which was worn as tights. I love everything about this look! Seems like the pieces were made for each other! The entire day, I felt like a Hollywood celebrity off duty once again! Haha. Forgive the ambitious Michelle. She just loves her wedge sneakers too much.

Necklace: Girl Shoppe

To match the silver details of my sneakers, I wore this silver necklace. I kept my other accessories simple and wore just a black & silver watch and my default stack of bracelet. What do you think of this look? :p

Back to Basics

Most of you would agree that it's always fun and exciting to dress up or follow the latest fashion trends, but there are just times when I find myself going back to the basics. There's nothing special about this look. It's just a plain tank top, cropped denim shorts, embellished flip-flops, and minimal accessories plus messy hair and no make-up at all, giving off that effortless look. I love how laid back this is. I wore this outfit two days ago when I accompanied my mum to run some errands. What do you think?

And just when I thought there's nothing special about this look, I realized that my tank top is in 2013's color of the year: emerald! I've heard that emerald is gonna be a big hit this year. Now who says you can't be in while wearing the most basic pieces your closet could ever hold?

Lunch Date

Yesterday, I went to Greenbelt and met up with my high school friend, Thea. Since she moved to New York about six years ago, she has already visited the Philippines twice but I only got to see her on the first one. Blame it on the busy schedule of a nursing student! Ugh. Anyway, now that she's visiting again, we had to see each other! We had lunch at Via Mare and then had coffee at Starbucks. It's been years and it felt like one day wasn't enough to catch up on everything. But here's what I can say: It may have been too long, but one thing's for sure: we still love to talk about the same things we used to talk about before -- shopping, handbags, and shoes! Gah. I really hope I could go and visit her in New York really soon! And shop, shop, shop together! ;-)

Pink Stripes

There are just days when I don't feel like mixing and matching clothes, and yesterday was one of those. My solution? I wore a dress! I'm actually not a dress person but I think that would change really soon! Not only would I have instant outfits for those lazy days. It would also save me when I'm in a hurry and wasn't able to prepare my outfit the night before. Ha! I better start stocking up on lovely dresses!

This dress I wore to work yesterday is an old one. I got it from a bazaar a few years back. I only bought it because of the cute bow on the front. I like how it gave the look of the dress some twist. I paired it with my black glitter ballet flats and a black bag. Also, I matched my watch to the gold hardware of the bag.

Denim Vest

I've had this denim vest for quite some time now and on Sunday, I finally got to wear it for the first time. It's actually from a really old denim jacket! One night, I found the jacket in my mum's closet, realized that no one's using it anymore, and cut 'em! And I must say, it turned out just the way I wanted it to! I wore it over a grey tank tucked in a bandage skirt. I finished my look with my favourite pair of shoes at the moment, my wedge sneakers!
