Casually Chillin'

Just a quick outfit post here to let you guys know that I'm still alive! (Though it sure might have been the opposite even though I'm just barely two weeks in as a third-year college student-- whoa, time flies by so fast!!)

When the rain falls, it seems to throw a blanket of laziness on people too, doesn't it? That's pretty much what I felt last Saturday, when it was pouring in the afternoon. I usually plan my weekend outfits ahead, but the weather was too gloomy for my original idea. Actually, my goal for that day really was to wear my new Birks (from my Seoul haul) for the first time. So I took it from there, and eventually ended up with this. I have a tendency to go on extremes when it comes to what I wear-- either I really dress up, or really dress down. Well, lazy dressing usually equates to slouchy clothing in my head. In fact, I was so lazy that I just decided to wear the cardigan that I also wore the previous day. (That's not really a fashion no-no, is it? I see it as a cover-up only anyway.)

Nothing much has happened during the past days, except from the fact that, for tonight, I get to take a breather from the intense classes. Also, I've created a Tumblr account! I've missed writing (not this kind of writing, but the creative kind), so that's where I'll be dumping my poetic attempts. Aside from that, you'll actually find out a lot about me just by looking at my posts there! I'm a bit of a fangirl myself, so that side of mine will be reflected there a lot. There's not much there yet though because I just started out. But feel free to follow me!

Also, I just watched Maleficent today. To be honest, the storyline seemed a bit anticlimactic to me. But being the stylephile that I am, I can't help but marvel at Ms. Angelina Jolie's costumes in the movie!! Especially that. catsuit. Talk about fierce!!

And because I'm incredibly smooth with transitions, here's a sidenote on the photos: Used Adobe Lightroom for the first-time in processing these photos! I used to use Photoshop, but man, Lr is so much easier and faster!! You might notice that I've also added watermarks on the photos. I discovered that Lr can do that automatically so I decided to give it a shot!









Cardigan: Aeropostale || Tank top: Uniqlo || Shorts & necklace: Forever 21
Midi rings: Aldo Accessories || Watch: Casio
Sandals: Birkenstock (Rio style) || Nails: L'Oreal (Club Prive color)

Can I also share how proud I am of actually maintaining my manicure properly for more than a week??? I love the shade of my nail polish! (It's brighter in reality.) I bought it for myself, so it's about time that I used it again. 

Before I wrap this post up, I'd like to share some realizations I had while looking at these photos: (1) I clearly do not know how to model from H2T; I need tips from Tyra lol. (2) Perhaps I need to inject more color into my wardrobe???

Anyway, so that's it for this post! Please be sweethearts and leave some comments below, would love to hear from you guys! Will try to get back to y'all as soon as I can. Also, follow me on GFC, Bloglovin, Instagram and Lookbook!
