Feeling Blue

For the past few days I’ve been feeling down lately. I’m usually extra emotional when Christmas is approaching. I know it’s supposed to be a happy holiday with all the gift giving, family reunions, office parties and charity events, but somehow with all these activities around me, I feel like something’s missing and that gives me a heavy heart. I think this year is more emotional than the past years because last year’s Christmas holiday was awesome for me and I know I wouldn’t be able to experience it this year. I won’t go into details anymore. Let’s just say I was high from love last year. :D

I should blame my hormonal state for wearing too much blue lately. But I can’t really help it since blue is also one of my favorite colors. Here are pictures of the outfit I wore last week.

 I guess we all do feel a little depressed sometimes and that’s okay. It’s okay to feel down and blue but it’s how you cope from it that’s important. Like no matter what we encounter in life, it’s how we move on and move forward that’s important. How we should never lose hope of a happy future because we all know everything’s going to be okay eventually. You know what they say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonades.

Everyone’s having a hard time with today’s winter, even us here in the Philippines (and our country technically doesn’t experience winter). Even here in Gensan, where we usually have bipolar weather (sunny mornings, rainy afternoons), we experienced cool temperature for days. Honestly, I loved it but its kinda scary. Global warming is a real issue guys. We should all take care of our planet.

Due to this weather, I had the opportunity to dress up in my long sleeves again. I wore my favorite cat crop top and paired it with a high waist houndstooth designed pants, which I think is a safe pairing (hello there, black and white). I also added the cap and nude heels for an edgy feel.

TIP: Every time you want to try edgy, pair classic with street. Example, the 90s get up plus the nude classy heels. ;)

So, what do you think of this look?

P.S. Did you miss me? Don’t worry, I’ll try my best to post more (new year’s resolution) and will definitely post my HK vacation soon! ♥

Perfect timing to wear casual comfy clothes since it was also a holiday so I can take a break from business appropriate attires. It was a really hot day so I decided to wear this crop top for some easy breezy lazy feel. The plaid style of my top inspired me to go denim-on-denim, wear my boots and go yee-ha. Kidding! But you get my point. ;)

Also, if you aren’t that comfortable (especially with a judgmental society) with what you are wearing (no matter how much you want to wear it), just add a little bit of something and try to pull it off. In my case, I don’t think anyone would want to meet my tummy in public so I decided to use my long-sleeved denim button down again.

I just realized how fourth of July appropriate this post was. There’s red, blue and white (minus the stars) in my ootd. Actually, it was raining really hard that day and I wanted to go for a nautical look so voila! Also, forgive me for my background, I had to take these pictures inside my office because well, it’s raining. :D

What do you think?

Two Sundays ago, I had to attend a meeting at work. The usual business attires are all black and boring so I decided to go all summer and young and wore something bright.

How about you guys? What’s your go-to-work outfit? Are you always a black and white kind of employee or do you incorporate your own style too?
