So…for this outfit, I kinda broke some rules. People said that we can’t wear leather and studs during summer but they’re just too awesome not to wear. lol. It’s really hard to mix and match something dark for summer because the heat is really really at it’s finest here in the philippines so to beat the heat I wore a very comfortable and thin tank top but accessorized it and finished off the staple by incorporating my favorite textures of leather and black studs.
Went to the opening of Cupcakes by Sonja’s in glorietta 2! ya’ll should drop by and also went to the premiere private screening of Iron man 3 (I changed my clothes) courtesy of folded and hung! check out their Iron man 3 shirts collection! :D
Studded cap (KOREA), tank top(BANGKOK),pants(TOPMAN),leather boots(H&M),geeky glasses( COOL CATS MANILA), backpack(OUTDOOR PRODUCTS), watch(LUMINOX)
tried to balance out the toughness of the studded cap by wearing my good boy-geeky frames from cool cats manila.
funny thing about this tank top is that I usually wear it during training but since it’s so hot here pinatulan ko na…haha!
this outfit is too dark for my sumer life so as much as possible I wear something bright and colorful like this tribal printed backpack that I got from Outdoor Products! It’s now available here in the philippines! ya’ll should check it out! :D
Leather boots from H&M. I really love this because it makes my feet look smaller and it makes me look taller and I really love pointy shoes. haha!
It’s been too sunny outside and for some reason I miss the gloomy days (I’m not saying I like the rain and the emo-ness i get form it) and the cold weather, good thing I’ll be going somewhere cold next week with the family for a vacation and I cant’ wait to wear jackets,beanies and do layerings because it’s such a frustration to do layerings here in our country with this kind of season, i’m not hating or anything lol! I just miss the cold breeze in the air. Here’s a tribute to that cold weather I miss. I wore something dark but I made contrast by wearing something light for the inner but still has that gloomy feel in it. You get what I mean? A light color that doesn’t really portray happiness (lol sabaw) and of course I wore a slight layering just to satisfy my layering frustrations. hahaha! what do you guys think? please don’t judge me me for wearing this in this kind of heat. HAHAHA! :))
Blue and red
I’ve been the unproductive guy lately in terms of school so i made myself productive while having fun by hanging out with friends in a coffee shop doing work as well. Wore something chill and toned down by playing with only 3 colors and then accessorize it by my cap which only means that I’m too lazy to fix my hair because it’s getting longer and unmanageable lol. Maybe I’ll do work outside often because I just realize that I’m too lazy and easily distracted by my bed,TV and fast internet connection. LOL. still in the school vibes by layering key pieces and made it more street style worthy. what do you guys think about this look? :)
What to do on a sunday, well I spent my long weekend with my friends but of course heard mass first before being with them lol. My parents were out of town, my brother has his own shenanigans and I’m alone stuck in my house so I made my day productive! Went to Dani Barretto’s village to help out on her shoot with photographer Toff Tiozon and then did some catching up with my high school friends after. I tried incorporating a strong/tough style with soft/pastel colors and surprisingly it turned out great! the toughness of the denim and leather material surprisingly complimented the softeness of the pastel colors of my button down and tailored shorts. Well, we’ll never know unless we try right? What do you guys think about this look?
Jacket ( ZARA ), button down ( DEAN AND TRENT ), shorts ( GIORDANO ), shoes ( SUPRA )

Laid back Sporty
There are days I just want to be laid back and sporty at the same time just like the time these photo were taken. I went to the gym that day even though my body hurts so bad from my dance training the day before this day ( I just can’t not workout for a day lol! talk about being too serious about being fit lol! ). I wore a varsity jacket with a hood for an urban look, a button down ,tailored shorts, sporty shoes and right accessories to achieve that laid back-sporty look. It’s still clean and proper if you look at it even though it’s sporty ( in a way ) . Trying out, mix and matching different styles is one way to create and innovate something new to your style just like what I did here. What do you think? :)
Jacket ( FOLDED AND HUNG ), shorts ( TOPMAN ), button down ( FOLDED AND HUNG ), sneakers ( ADIDAS ), watch ( WADE ), aviators ( FOLDED AND HUNG ), Necklace ( GERD x CRAVEMORE)
Layering is really appropriate right now for our kind of weather because it’s been really really cold lately, I don’t even sweat even just a little even if the sun is up and rising.
This is so Gerd! lol. Thank you Cravemore for this! :)
Silver/black wrist watch from Wade— it gives a mature and preppy accent to the whole outfit! :)
Got this aviators from folded and hung during christmas— I really like it because it suits me well even though I don’t wear eye pieces that are in the shade of brown.
Sneakers from Adidas NEO label—Perfect for that sporty look for the whole outfit! it’s the cherry on top for the peg I want to achieve! :)
