Bye-bye Summer Brights, Hello Autumn Hues

9/09/2012 03:25:00 AM

Well, technically, we don't really have Autumn here in the Philippines. But I'd like to think we do! And there's no harm in dressing up like we do, too. The season of Autumn or Fall is already here, and even the fashion trends are slowly transforming. You'll see less of the pastels and bright colors, and more of the dark tones of what's supposedly like the autumn leaves. Darker Reds, Greens, Yellows, Blues, and more nude and neutral shades of Black, Grays, and Whites to pair them off with.

So how did I incorporate those? By wearing monochromatic hues of course! Black and white can be simple and classy, so I chose to add a bit of the colors from the imaginary autumn leaves we have here in the country.

I love being a girl. And being a petite mademoiselle is also a bonus. It makes my wardrobe choices limitless! Being petite means I can still pick out clothes from the kids section (and you can't help but admit that some times the clothes from the kids' section are even better looking than the clothes in the women's section), and being a girl doesn't limit me from rumaging through my boyfriend's closet from time to time. Of course, I don't literally invade his closet. I just simply ask him if he can spare me a polo, shirt or cardigan some times. And this polo is no exception. Heeheehee >:P

Big clothes for a tiny frame won't stop me from wearing them. I'd roll up the sleeves and tuck it in my shorts if I have to!

These boots have got to be the oldest one I have that I wore the most. Since they're made of faux leather, I wouldn't really mind it if they got wet in the rain. Although there's a big difference between getting wet from the rain, and purposely dancing in puddles of water. Of course, given the choice, I still won't allow my boots to get too wet. A few splashes here and there are all I can let them take.

Come to think of it, my outfit kinda gives off the feeling of a back-to-school vibe... Back to High School perhaps? It might be cause of the plaid shorts I'm wearing. Or the hat. The white polo maybe? All I know is that I'm facing a new term in a couple of days. And I can't say I'm ready yet, hahaha!

You can't go wrong with wearing accessories with the same shade as your ourfit! Black and Gold are definitely classy.
