Rainy days take away the brilliance in almost everything. While the gloomy weather is a valid excuse to dress snuggly and comfortably in our lounge pants & sweat shirts, I feel like its the perfect time to dress up and beat the unwelcoming feels that cast like a dark cloud on what could’ve been a beautiful sunny day. Being stuck at home last week for four days due to Typhoon Glenda (Rammasun) gave me cabin fever. So I decided the next time I was out for a day, I’m out with just a little sparkle to perk me up.
Here’s what I wore one full day dedicated to work. Good thing, I didn’t have to walk on any pavements and wet floors, otherwise, I would’ve hurt myself for sure. Here in Manila, rainy days would mean indoors and more time spent at malls since our outdoors aren’t really that conducive for the wet weather.
My default color palette is now leaning towards neutrals. Blacks, nudes and whites have now become my favorite. I don’t know if this is just a phase but I know that I’m liking it now more than ever. Does this mean my style is maturing? Is that even a bad thing? I don’t really know.
While I’m not really the jeans type, I figured it’s not the jeans that’s the issue, it’s the shoes and top I wear with it that makes a huge difference. My wardrobe is made up of tank tops, shirts, lots of loose and flowy blouse. While I like what I have in my closet, I feel like I don’t have enough that would really represent my style whenever I wear jeans. Maybe I haven’t found my jeans style just yet.
While I haven’t found my jeans style, I admit I like giving flair to wearing jeans. I like pairing it with anything that makes the look stand out from the usual shirt and jeans, like what I did with this outfit.
