Summer has got to be my most favorite season of the year. Different splashes of colors (from soft tones of pastel & neutral to luminous hues of neons) and bursts of prints (from tropic to moroccan) are easily spotted everywhere! Never has it been boring to dress up at this time all because excuses to be too bright or heavily printed is openly accepted, well to most cases. haha

Paid a visit to Call It Spring Greenbelt yesterday and fell in love with the soft and bright hues that enlivened the shop. They just released their summer 2013 set and unlike other shoe stores who concentrate on a certain 'trend', Call It Spring does the opposite. With 3 different collections to choose from, one need not worry about spotting the perfect 'summer pair'. 
Call It Spring truly brings us shoes for all season!

The current collection consists of these:
 Virtual Dream - Pastels, dreamy and feminine tones that's nothing but pretty.
Culture Clash - Globetrotting prints from different cultures in the world--to Moroccan to Egyptian to Indonesian.
Plastic Fantastic - Urban sleek set with blacks and whites and techno styles.

Which do you love the most? Mine just has got to be Plastic Fantastic!
The studs are just adorable :)

Good news to my fellow Davaoenos, Call It Spring finally opened in Davao today (Mar 22, Friday) SM Lanang! 
No need to go to Manila or Cebu to have a taste of their collections! :)

 Normally for my everyday outfit I stick to neutrals and basic, but with the explosion
of radiant hues this summer, I just can't help but make some changes with my wardrobe! 

So for the mean time, I am bidding goodbye to my pair of old blue jeans and saying hello to the collection of candy-colored denims from GAP. Something that I am quite happy of doing! 
Why? Well first, worrying about looking dull will hardly be a problem.  Second, I need not add a lot to the outfit to make it stand out. I can just throw on a plain top with the denim and some accessories but still look fresh and vibrant! Just what I did with this ensemble, which I hope you like by the way. :)
I've to say, this season's trend is a lot easier to work with than last summer's! 

Neon Pants: GAP | Top: Chicnova | Bag: Charles & Keith | Necklace, Ring & Belt: SM Accessories | Shoes: SM Parisian

Shorts: American Eagle Outfitters
Jacket: Guess

We all have those days when dressing up becomes a task rather than a thing we do for fun. 
Don't be ashamed. I too am guilty for always siding to casual and comfortable. In fact, I often go through mornings when I feel like just throwing on something I first lay eyes on in the closet, and last Thursday was nothing different. Went to school in a ponytail--which I only do on lazy days--and in my favorite go-to outfit: denim jacket, shorts/skirt and boots. 
You might be thinking now what on earth is special about this look, well that's the thing. It does not always have to be special. As long as it looks good and you feel comfortable in it, then I believe it's all good! Don't you agree? 
Well I hope you like the casual denim-on-denim ensemble! :)
 Happy Sunday my dear readers!

Top: Chicnova
Shorts: Sabrina
Necklace: Mauve
Bracelets: SM Accessories

As a preparation to summer, I am finally adding neon to my wardrobe. And though I'm only taking one baby step at a time, 
I can say I am making quite a progress already--having to start with accessories, to wallet and now down to shorts! haha
But despite my efforts of really going outside the box, the 'safe' side in me still comes out as seen evidently in this outfit.
I just thought pairing neutrals and soft tones with neon would lessen the "OH WOW" factor. I mean it's okay to be catching attention, but you wouldn't wanna be looking like a clown from some random circus walking in a costume that's color uncoordinated, would you? Know what I mean? haha 
So yeah, I came up with this--an ensemble I call...balanced. 
Something very soft yet cool in the eyes. 
I hope you like it! :)

shoes, bag & wallet: Charles & Keith
glittered high-waist jeggings: SOUL
top & bracelet : Forever21
Nails by Coco Luca

I was never really the type to choose ankle skinnies over a pair of denim shorts, but recently it has become my obsession. Too much exposure to Aimee Song's and Jennifer Grace's blogs is to blame. I swear those chicks can pull off any type of pants! If only I have their legs. *sighs*
Only a few weeks before summer and I've been seeing a lot of neon! I've to admit I find it quite hard to wear but I'm doing my best and starting slow with this electric pink wallet from Charles & Keith and bracelet from Forever21. 
Might have to do extra research on how to wear neons. Promise I'll do better next time. lol

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you like the look :)

Cali style finally hits Manila as the famous US brand, American Eagle Outfitters,
 opens its first store in High Street today (March 1, 2013) and I was one of the lucky ones to experience it first hand yesterday before it opened its doors to the public!

Stepping foot inside two-storey shop (women's 1st floor and men's 2nd floor) was literally like going in a candy shop! Only that time those sweet treats were bright-colored jeans, neon hoodies, pastel tanktops etc. The spring/summer collection was fun & vibrant. Very bohemian and beachy! And I must say, I loved everything. I was like a kid walking in wonderland, wanting to grab each item I laid my eyes on. Really.
What's great is that the store's organized. Styles were separated, like they had a spot for beach bums & surfers, for bohemians, for sporty ones and those girl-next-door types. So shopping isn't really that confusing, unlike those shops where you feel like you're stuck in some kind of a salad feast.

Below are snaps of the shop and items I liked.
Enjoy the photo tour! :)

My favorite section!
The bag!
Spotted the perfect sundress! 
Aerie, AE's lingerie line.
The 'surfer/beach bum' section, my favorite amongst all men's collection!
