NOT YOUR ORDINARY DRESS

Hellooooo!!! Spending my saturday off locked in the room and blog all my thoughts away. Jk! But seriously I am spending this day locked in the house after spending some quality time yesterday with my shift mates and of course I need to get some rest since I have work tomorrow (Life at the airport).

Anyway, on to my outfit. I have always found the comfort of a dress. I love any dress they are like a girls bestfriend because with the right dress you can instantly be a head turner and on lazy days they can really help because with the right styling it can come off like you have really put an effort to dress up. In my case I did feel a little lazy to dress up but since this dress is far different from my usual dresses I didn’t need to do more because the dress itself is stunning on its own. I always say less is more, that is why I just added a few accessories and I was good to go.

This dress I feel is very versatile you can pair it with heels like I did mine for a more formal or night time look but for a day time look I can imagine pairing it with sneakers plus a denim jacket with some sunnies and you are good to go.

How would you style this dress? :)

GOT MY JEANS ON

I am the kind of girl who wears pants when needed. I only wore pants when I go to school, in church or when there are simply dress codes. I find it very difficult to find jeans that fits me well and real reason why I hate wearing jeans is because of the hot weather. 

But this style stunner high waisted jeans is an exception. I could wear this jeans everyday because it fits me so well. I actually bought the navy blue high waisted pants first and I loved it so much I bought the lighter version which is what I am wearing in this photos.

When you are a jeans girl and you are not comfortable wearing dresses or skirts try something different and not just settle on plane jeans. Try something like this high waisted jeans or how about a boy friend jeans. The best thing about jeans is that you can easily pair them with anything and you can go casual just by pairing it with sneakers or you can wear a good pair of pumps to make it more formal.

How would you wear your jeans? :)

SWEATER WEATHER

Featuring this lovely sweater from my favourite online shop, STYLE STUNNER MANILA. After staying for weeks in Manila because of my job I finally had the time to come home to Ilocos during my FriSat off. During my stay in Ilocos rain suddenly poured and I needed to go out to run some errands.

So what to wear? I got my new sweater plus my ankle boots and even got the chance to use my Forever21 umbrella which I got for free from Forever21PH SM North Edsa.

I’m sure my photos tell it all already. I can’t keep my mind straight because I just arrived back in Ilocos and my mind is still going off. I hope you enjoy this new set of outfit shots :)

FOREVER TWEETUMS

I actually felt like a kid wearing this outfit aside from the skirt and butterfly print I love the combination of blue and green of my outfit. It’s fun to play with colors sometimes and why not try something new and not the usual pink and blue or yellow and red. You also have to try and mix different colors if you are already comfortable with the basics.

I have always kept in mind that when you want to experiment with bold colors do not over complicate it and add tons of colors from the rainbow but instead pick at least 2 to 3 colors and focus on it. 

For my outfit I focused on blue and green and I felt very cheerful and youthful while walking around. I was literally twirling and skipping around since I am also in my flats. Do not forget that sometimes your outfit can define your mood. So what do you think?

AUDREY HEPBURN

Every girl has their Audrey Hepburn fan girl moment right? Well, at least I know that I do. Audrey is very iconic because the little black dress started because of her. For me she resembles a women who is classic, polished yet stylish. I really love Audrey Hepburn. Imagine the “kilig’ feels I got when Plains and Prints released a collection with an Audrey Hepburn print. I told myself that I will get it as soon as it comes out.

Fortunately, I won the Pre Fall Preview on instagram which I blogged before and of course the perks of winning I got the chance to shop the whole 3 collections. Of course I went to the Uptown Girl Collection first and grabbed this Audrey Hepburn Dress. I was so lucky because this was the only small dress they had already so I did not let go of it. I swear there where girls waiting for me to let go of the dress but I just couldn’t and they can’t have it! HAHA!

Remember a rule in shopping if you see something you like and it is the last piece never let it go out of your sight! Get it already! Especially if another buyer is spotting it. Why let it go when it is already in your hands right? :) Yes, I’m competitive like that. Haha!

LITTLE MISS

After my first week at work I can’t believe how tire I am that is why I this is the only time I had to blog because I was always tired whenever I came home.

Anyway, I love this dress because it made me feel like a little girl again. If you know me, you would know my love for anything that is girly and when my mom gave me dress you could just imagine myself jumping for joy.

For this look I wanted to keep it minimal with just my dress as the focal point. No statement accessories just dainty and I even braided my hair in the simplest way possible in order to have that little girl look.

I swear I wanted to twirl around and dance all day while wearing this dress. You could just see the joy in my face while wearing this. Plus, you’re never to old to wear a a dress right? What do you think?

BLACK AND WHITE

Lately, I have been into black and white clothes. From striped tops to printed skirts I found myself getting black and white or blue and white but you get the picture!

Black and white for me is the easiest to style and the most classic colors combined. Whenever I wear black and white I either style it with the same color plus gold accessories or I add a pop of color like a red pumps or a pink bag. You see a black and white colored dress is also like a canvas just like your LBD (Little Black Dress) or LWD (Little White Dress) but in two colors. You can go beyond of what color your accessories will be. You can do wonders with black and white because they go with anything. But you also have to remember that sometimes less is more and don’t go to over the top by adding all the colors of the rainbow into your outfit.

For my look I decided to go classic by using only Black and White. What do you think?

FLORALS AND STRIPES

I always wanted to experiment with clothes as much as I can especially when it comes to print on print outfits. It is not everyday that I can combine two different prints and make it cohesive in an outfit. I actually already tried mixing prints like floral on floral but this is the first time that I tried mixing two different prints. I have seen style blogs that mixes stripes and florals and I find them always perfect for each other. So I decided why not take that risk too and see if I can pull it off? In my defence I loved the outcome of my outfit. Don’t you think? It is one of my favorite looks that I have so far.

When I bought the floral kimono I was actually planning in matching it with yet another floral top but why settle in my comfort zone when I have a chance to take a risk right? What I learned about mixing prints is that always find a similar color in both prints, most probably pick the dominant color. Like in my outfit the color black is the reason why both prints compliment each other. 

What do you think of my take on a print on print outfit? I made a promise to myself that I will learn more and continue to improve and of course share and hopefully inspire others as I do what I love to do.

OOTD-er

This is the last of the outfit shots I saved when i was still in Ilocos that means no more OOTD’s for now. HUHUHU! I have been so busy this past few days and I can say that I don’t have time to take OOTD’s anymore nor I have anyone to take my outfit shots anymore. (PS: Mom I miss you and I miss when you take my OOTD’s). Any way if ever I have the time or I have a outfit worth posting I will try updating my blog and show the latest look I came up with.

If you are wondering what is with my blog title it’s because my batchmates are referring to me as the OOTD-er (A person who takes her OOTD) hahaha! I swear I’m laughing so hard everytime they mention it because nobody has ever referred to me as such.

So as an OOTD-er let me share to you this amazing dress which was a gift form my favorite online store @STYLESTUNNERMANILA. It has been so long since I last wore a colorful outfit like this so what a girl to do? Add more color of course! The key to adding more color to a colorful outfit is to get the same colors or in the same family colors and your outfit can look well put together.

So what do you think of my OOTD? Like this look on instagram @annapatrish
