Hello and welcome! I'm Erika Rosales, and this is my blog *wow such big phrase right there* called "Style and Sundry". I don't exactly know how to start, so please bear with me.

 A lot of my friends have been urging me to start blogging. I myself have always wanted to do so, too, but I was always afraid that I wouldn't be able to keep it up. Well anyway, it's quite obvious that I gave in, because here we are. I'm still not certain that I will be able to maintain this though (given that I've had a bad track record-- let's save that for some other time). So just hang in there and let's see where this "adventure" will end up! I have a couple of posts lined up; but for now, here's my first outfit post. Yay!


If you guys have been following me on Instagram, you might have noticed that I've had some nice backdrop lately. Well, I just found my favorite #OOTD shoot location which is-- Paco Park! I just love how the place has this hedge that's perfect for "sweet" looks, and brick walls for "edgy" ones. So whenever we hear mass there, I try to make it a point to have my pictures taken (by my ever-so-patient father, no less *using his phone*).

I know it's summer already, but I felt like dressing up for spring. Oh how I wish the Philippines had spring! I have to say, it's my favorite season. It's between summer and winter, so it's just the right kind of hot with some kind of windy.

What I wore was actually a top, but I was being stubborn so I decided to wear it as a "dress". But hey, that's why I wore stockings underneath! I figured wearing leggings would be too hot. I used to wear the top with shorts, but now I find it troublesome tucking it in.

Sheer stockings + lace socks + vintage loafers! ♥

*Please excuse my face, I kinda forgot to smile huehue. Also, rush post-processing was done by me. I'll figure out the permanent "filter" that I'll be using on my pictures soon.

If you're wondering where I got my lace socks, I actually got them from the kids' department. Shhh.

So yeah, my accessories are predominantly brown leather.

Love my nail polish! I wonder how long they will last. I've turned into a bad caretaker when it comes to manicure, and I don't even know why, sigh. (Wearing maroon Orly *forgot to take note of the name sorry*, c/o Nailogy at Robinson's Manila!)

 Top: Mango || Loafers: Cole Haan (vintage) || Watch: Tommy Hilfiger (vintage) || Satchel: H&M

Okay, when I say "vintage", it's most probably my mom's way, way before and she already gave it to me (or I declared it mine, same thing, really haha).

That's all for my first post! I would appreciate it if you leave some love for me by commenting below. Thanks so much!!


  1. Love the blog! Hihi. I have (secretly and quietly) cooed over your OOTD pics over fb and in general, so I am really excited to see your looks and life stories posted all in one place.

    <3 Looking forward to more!

    (P.S. Are you always in Paco Park / Malate Church / Robinsons Place area? It's a wonder I've never ran into you yet?)

    1. Aaaaa thanks so much Jari!!! I've been secretly reading your blog posts too!!

      *Not always, but there are Sundays when I'm in Paco Park and Friday nights when I'm in Rob! Would be great to bump into you, I haven't seen you for a long time! :( :)

  2. That's really nice of your dad, welcome to blogging! I really enjoy the way you write about your day!

    1. Yeah, I feel very lucky! Aww thank you so much!! ♥

  3. So cute! The belt and loafers add just the right amount of vintage to compliment the polka dots. Nice styling Erika.


    1. Thanks so much for the compliments, Briana! ♥
