What better way to enjoy Baguio than to dress for the cold weather? I admit, I was pretty excited planning my outfit for our quick getaway because I got to choose from the tucked away outerwear that’s been gathering dust in the back of my closet. Baguio was a great excuse to bust out one my favorite Ebay finds. I know it would be too much to bring out my boots and other winter-appropriate wardrobe (I shall save these for an OOTD in a place that actually has snow). But one must know, that owning something made of leather (apart from bags and shoes) is a must, even if one lives in a tropical country for you’ll never know when you’ll need one.
To be honest, the only thing I cared about packing during our cold post-Christmas trip were my jackets, because I know anything I put underneath would look okay with a chic topper.
Our first day in Baguio was the chilliest (well, at least for me) and the usual cardigan or scarf just couldn’t keep me warm. Luckily, I didn’t doubt myself and packed this leather jacket which didn’t even fit my cramped duffle bag. When Mr. GJG saw that I was carrying this fine specimen of clothing, he insisted I leave it behind as I would’t be able to use it. Aaaaand I’ve proven yet again that I was right again. Hihihi.
This is probably one of the most comfy travel outfits I’ve worn. For me, comfort is my utmost priority when packing for a trip. Depending on the destination, I add an element that makes it appropriate for the place. For our Baguio trip, its obvious that it’s the jacket.
Five degrees down than the usual Manila temperature & I get chilly right away.
Super love my latest Yosi Samra pair. This gorgeous Scaled Pony Hair is my current fave. 🙂
