Hi there my loves! How are you doing today? I hope everything is fine.
Be happy and always smile! :)
I feel happy, sexy, comfortable and confident in what I'm wearing today. The colors are so vibrant that gives a summer-ish appeal. I teamed up my neon green blouse with floral-tropical shorts and red loafers. I choose simple gold accessories and colorful sunglasses to polish off my look.

Hi, lovelies! How's your day? Be happy, thankful and always smile. ^_^
Remember this quote from Helen Keller.
“Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.”For some people, animal print is too wild and bold but there are so many ways to wear animal print. If you're wearing an animal print skirt, you can tone it down by wearing a single colored top and a nude shade of footwear. Another way of toning down a big animal print is by wearing accessories like scarf or bag that draw attention to it but make sure it will complement or blends well with your wild print.
Here, I opted to pair my black-grayish leopard blouse [it has spikes in the collar- so cool!] with an orange shorts with subtly embossed/printed patterns. [I normally want to go for a printed and texture combination.] I did this styling for a fun, young and new way to wear the wild print. Not everyone like this idea but I believe this is a great mode giving a fresh and youthful feeling. I also picked a wedge sandals in neutral color.
Simple accessories like these gold rosette studs and colorful bracelet completed my look.
There are many shades to choose from, you just have to be certain which one best suits you. I really love this style idea and remember the key here is to go for a single vibrant color.

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ― Coco Chanel
When I started this blog, the majority of my posts are not about fashion or styling tips. At first, my blog is intended for my vacation trips, some parts of my daily life and random rants. But I've decided last August 2013 to include fashion/outfit styling ideas. In this case, I get to document my style and look back to see how my style improve trough the years.There are so many good things about writing especially about fashion. I must say that it's an outlet for creativity and an opportunity to share cool ideas or advice with a bigger audience which has also connected me to a lot of amazing people all over the world.
Once in a while I get an email telling me that my blog posts are nice and sometimes readers appreciate my writings. It's a nice feeling when other people appreciate what you do and those appreciation became an inspiration for me to do better.
Stephanie emailed me this great question yesterday, "I will go to college next school year and I still can't figure out my style or how to dress nicely because I'm chubby. I live in jeans and t-shirts, I'm afraid dresses or shorts will not look great on me. I really adore dresses but lacking some confidence. Please give some advice on how to look good and dress myself. Thanks!" -Stephanie
Here's my answer, Stephanie, I totally understand you and honestly during my college days; I also live in jeans, shirts and rubber shoes. I wore these type of clothes for 4 years, I seldom buy new one because I'm on a tight budget and the money I have is only for transportation and food allowances. Some people laugh at me and saying that I'm "baduy". [Baduy is a Filipino slang meaning unfashionable, conservative, poor taste] There's nothing wrong with these type of clothing, it's actually very comfortable to wear. It's just that, during those years when I'm still studying, I can't have a good pair of sandals, can't have nice shorts and skirt or dresses. Buying these stuff is not my priority and I DON'T CARE whether they call me "baduy". I know myself better than anyone else, I can be a regular lady in jeans+shirt or a gorgeous elegant lady that you can imagine. I have this attitude like Coco Chanel: “I don't care what you think about me. I don't think about you at all.”
It's just a matter of purpose, motivation, self-confidence and finding your style. Some people that like fashion don't make an effort because it can take time, not a "great day" or simply not practical. You should give purpose to your fashion. Whether you're going to the mall or just working at home, say to yourself that "Today, I want to look pretty and go to my favorite coffee shop and do my work there." Anything can be your motivation that will bring you to dress better.
If you're a regular chick that likes to wear jeans and shirt , it's okay. No one is forcing you to wear and walk in heels but if you're the type of lady who wants to try different styles then this is the time to experiment. Fashion is actually an excellent way to figure yourself out what looks good on you and what's not. Dressing well gives you self-confidence. When you look at yourself in the mirror and think you look awesome, you'll feel good all day.
A well-dressed woman looks put together. People will like you if you have a great personality but with combined great style, they will not forget you. You're not dressing up because you want to stand out from the crowd or to get noticed. What you want is to make a good impression and draw the "right" kind of attention.
If you walk with your head up, have an attitude in carrying your style, have some confidence, purpose and motivation then this mean you'll have a GREAT STYLE.
Thank you very much! I hope this help you in any way. :)
