What I Wore Today: Transition

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I am really a beach/outdoorsy/nature-loving type of person and I find it extremely hard to transition back into my condo dwellings after a nice vacation. Manila weather doesn't help much either. One minute, it's breezy, the next it's sweltering hot. Even mall airconditioning systems don't help. Sometimes it's freezing cold and other times it seems like they turn it off for awhile to save up on electricity leaving you hot in your sweater.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one who experiences this but after a beach trip, I feel like my body still retains a lot of the heat even after a day of being back in the city. It's like my skin gets really used to being almost totally naked and prefers to reject any piece of clothing attempting to attach itself to it.

When I got back from my trip, I stared at my closet and was dumbfounded, as in a total blank. The weather was too warm for layering but too cold for tank tops and shorts. I tried slipping myself into a pair of jeans but I hated the feeling of being "trapped" in such constricting leg conditions (haha!) so I immediately took them off.

What's the best and easiest thing to wear when you don't know what to wear? Black and white. A nice and comfortable white top is essential in anyone's closet. They are lifesavers. Pair with black shorts, pants, or skirt and you're good to go. No brainer. Easiest thing ever. Just put on some statement shoes or bag and you'll look slick in no time!

Slip on a normal footwear and you blend with everyone else. But the leo print booties will surely make this outfit standout! Effortlessly chic babe! =)

you should have worn a jacket/blazer over a tank top (if you wanted to wear one).
Thanks for the Inspiration.

Thanks for linking up! Great statement shoes! They are a great idea with black-and-white. Is that a sunroom or porch? It looks like a great place to sip lemonade and read a book. Or listen to music. Nice and relaxing!
