I’m currently in the busiest & most stressful part of my last semester as a studentβ€”just doing my best not to let the pressure get to me. Deadlines are looming over the horizon & it doesn’t help that I have a couple of emotional crap to deal with personally. It’s hard to be an overthinker who also has a low sense of self-worth. Deadly combo if you ask me! But yeah, this blog post is turning into a rant so I’m gonna stop the drama here lol. So for this outfit set, I tried being a bit of a badass & use some elements of rock ‘n roll as seen through the ripped jeans & pair of dark sunnies. However, since being a sucker for comfy pieces is already engraved in my sartorial bloodline, I decided not to go all-out. The graphic sweater I chose kinda balanced everything out.

Here’s me exerting extra effort to look posh & put-together despite the madness that is going on in the background (that is MY life)! I just wanted to post something more dapper & less casual because I think I’ve been swerving too much on the comfort side of things. You have to balance on the thin line between style & ease y’know! Anyway, I decided to spruce things up by layering a long-sleeved sweatshirt underneath my printed polo. I took this inspo from the late 90’s asian street kids (and I also did it because it’s lowkey super chilly & bed weather-ish lately thanks to the northeast monsoon). I’ve been dabbling a lot on layers since Manila is starting to feel like Baguio these past few days. Fingers crossed this climate is here to stay!

How I wish I could turn into an owl right now! For one, I need the wisdom that those majestic creatures have among the animal kingdom for my thesis works. And another reason is that I just wanna fly away for a while to escape my troubles & just breathe in some healing vibes somewhere in the planet. What an exhausting week this one is becoming! Anyway, I’m doing these hugots in part for my outfit post. This purple owl sweater has been in my closet for a little over 7 years already & I’m still not growing tired of it. Its oversized & boxy demeanor is perfect for days where I’m in need of some room to breathe. It’s actually near the comfort level of clothes you wear to bed for some shuteye. Others might find that a con but I won’t ever consider it as one.

My year is starting out really nice & I’m very ecstatic about it! It’s a different feeling compared to last year’s because I feel more at peace & happier with everything that’s happening in my life. I’m in a better place now. Thank You Lord! Anyways, here’s me dressing up yet again. Not too grand, just the exact amount of style. I want to keep on embracing my identity since being true to yourself is one of the keys to happiness. Same with my fashion, I guess? I hope you guys are having a great time with 2017 so far! Cheers to the next 12 months.
