Just dropping by today to say hi! I might miss you guys too much if I allow another day to pass without posting. Haha. I’ve got my hands full lately so I hope you forgive me for the late updates here. But I promise I’ll adjust soon and pick up the pace. In the meantime, you guys can follow me on Instagram and Twitter for more curent stuff. :)
Tomorrow I’ll be heading out to Hong Kong with my parents! Oh, joy! Hopefully I find more down time there so I can blog the others things from last week. :) Anyway, on to my outfit!
I wore this look when our family went up to Tagaytay Highlands last week. Somehow the idea of mountains always lead me to earth-themed / brown outfits. I should try doing something brighter like yellow or pastel like peach next time.
But I like that this look is classic. If you remove my accessories it’s pretty much basic. And to avoid looking too brown, I popped in orange. :)
What do you think of this look?

Here’s a look I wore during one of those days that I had to do my Nava store visits. Lucky for us we immediately found a spot with only a few people standing by where we (actually my mom!) could shoot this outfit of the day. Haha. Can you guess where we shot this? :)
One thing I love about A/W season (Well, in Manila, that is pretend Autumn / Winter season. I pretty much consider everything before and after the Feb-May months A/W. Lol.) are all the jewel-toned items that slowly appear in everyone’s collections. I just find the deep colors so classy. I love them. <3
For this look, the first step I did was identify some of the prominent colors in my printed shorts so that I know which solid separates and accessories to match it with. Basically, I used the print to build up the rest of the look. Do you see how the forest green top, gold jacket, red lips and shoes go with the shorts? :)
And when I ran out of options– cause you know I don’t have solids in one million colors– I just got black. It’s the safest option in the world. So for accessories, I just used black sunglasses, a black belt, and a black back. All matchy-matchy. Then also a simple braided bracelet to go with the braided belt.

Bloggers United has always been crazy. The good kind of crazy, of course. I still remember feeling overwhelmed the first time I became part of this a year ago. Wild na yun pero mas wild pa to! Among the 3 BU’s that I’ve been to, I have to say this one’s got to be the craziest gathering… and also my favorite thus far. :)
For those of you who still do not know Bloggers United (aka BU), it is a bi-annual gathering / sale where fashion (and now also beauty) bloggers sell their pre-loved, slightly used, closet items at low low prices. For some, it is a chance to shop and acquire great fashion finds for less. For others, it is an opportunity to meet, mix and mingle with bloggers and readers. :)
BU gets bigger and better everytime. Its 5th installment last June 1 at SMX was our bongga-est yet! We think this recent one gathered the largest crowd too!
As usual, I shared my booth with my fave partner, Alyssa Lapid. :) All items in our stall were priced at php 600 and below. But thinking about it now, that range might still be a bit high so we might lower the range to php 500 and below next BU. MIGHT. Hehe. Aaaand this also got me thinking about putting up a “Shop My Closet” type of thing in Facebook too. Like a a little outlet “store” I can do in between BU’s… you think I should do it?
Shopping from other bloggers’ racks is always a lot of fun (especially when you get first dibs on the funky ones) but the best and most special part for me was really meeting you guys, dear readers, you behind the tweets, likes and comments. Seeing you guys there really made my heart smile. Ang saya niyo lang! :)
Thank you thank you thank you to those who went and dropped by our booth! :) You guys have no idea how much we loved meeting you. :) It was such an honor. Thank you for blessing us with your support! You’re all so nice and sweet! Favorite ko yung mga nagpapa-”wacky” pose hahaha! <3 Alovet! (some pics from Instagram and Twitter, thanks for the tags!)
Everyone, meet Loreen :) Special pic. Hehe. This is for your sweetness and thoughtfulness, Loreen. Thanks for being such an encouragement. I pinned your gift in my corkboard for inspiration. :) Hope to see you again next BU!
Hope to see you all again at Bloggers United 6!
One last thing. Can’t end this post without thanking the 2 special men in our booth: Gian and Paul, our ever supportive boyfriends. Nyahaha. :) Thanks for not getting tired of documenting me and Alyssa! Hihi. Next time, we’ll take your OOTD pics naman. Haha :p
Again and again, thank YOU for making Bloggers United a huge success! YOU guys made it all happen! Our most sincere gratitude from the bottom of our hearts. <3
Til’ the next! :)
Much love, Danika
