Thanks to the wonderful sunset, I look golden here! But sadly, this is not the case under normal daylight. Snap. Thankfully though, another beach trip is coming up next week. Yay Boracay! Who else is going? :)

So I gave the black on black thing a shot here in Anilao. Never done it before cause typical me would always just go for prints. But turns out that the combo can be quite classy if done the right way. Otherwise, there’s that tendency to be identified as “the emo one”. It’s a bit tricky. Tip is, if you plan to go for the look where everyone else is going festive and bright (like the beach), work with items that are shorter, more fitted than loose, and if possible, sheer. Try crop tops, backless halter tops, thin straps, sleek swimwear with shorts or a sheer sarong.

I’m currently into fresh, clean, summery whites and I’m taking inspiration from this lookbook. Mango, you nailed it.

Summer Silhouette

Hello from the beach! Well just not this beach. This look was shot last Sunday in Anvaya Cove in Subic. But today, I’m saying hi from Anilao, Batangas where I’m spending the holiday with family and friends. What are you up to this long break? This summer break? I’ve got more trips planned in the coming weeks too, and I’m quite excited! I’m just thankful that my summer is turning out great.  :)

The halter silhouette is probably my top pick this season. I love how it shows off just enough making it convenient in this hot HOT weather. It’s both sexy and modest which I like. And I’m not sure if you agree with me but I think its also got that sporty vibe to it that makes me love it even more. Think I’ll get this in black too. 

Enjoy the long weekend guys!
