After a much long hiatus, I’m finally back! I apologize for my lack of posts for the last 1 1/2 month. I had so much school work to finish, but fret not, (cue trumpets) hell week has ended. I am now free from stress!

We all know fall/winter season is very much irrelevant in the Philippines because the sun is always shining here. It’s very seldom for the weather to be sweater appropriate. We are always in that summer/spring spirit when we dress up everyday and most often than not, we really can’t follow most fall trends. So how do you incorporate fall during summer? You simply choose trends that works for your country’s weather, choose clothing made of light fabrics and follow micro trends. For example, flannels are big this season, so choose accessories that incorporates the fabric or buy a light weight flannel shirt. Just like what I did here, I chose to layer my basic t-shirt with a dark hued flannel (which is very in this season) that is not too thick so I won’t feel hot. My outfit here looks very ‘Fall’ and warm, but it felt cool while I was wearing it amidst the hot weather. I think it’s all about how you harmonize fashion and practicality.

DIY THIN CHAIN BRACELET

I love bracelets, and I am really loving intimate looking ones lately. The intimate feel of the bracelets stacked with each other really gives history to them (even if there isn’t) and very personal. I also like bracelets that are fun and colorful. The vibrancy of the colors are eye-catching and ooze personal style. So here is an easy DIY that combines that intimate and fun style I love in bracelets.

MATERIALS:

Thin Chain | Jump Rings | Any Kind of Clasp | Loop Bar | Pliers | Charm or Beads | Studs

STEPS:

1. Put the charm or bead of your own choosing through the loop bar and close it. You can also use a brooch or a safety pin for the charm.

2. I added a stud to my bead to give it more depth. Connect your chain to the bead or charm. 

3. Add a jump ring and a clasp in both ends of your bracelet.

You can personalize it as much as you want. Use charms that are meaningful to you. Get creative with the colors, beads, charms, etc. Go crazy with it! I hope you guys found inspiration in this DIY, until the next project! Ciao!

How has everyone been doing? Well, I’m actually very busy right now with tons of school work. That’s why I haven’t blogged for a while. I hope you guys understand. I’ll update my blog as much as I can, but for now I’m squeezing in this style post. I wore this during a Sunday with my family. The outfit was not fussy to wear and it’s very relaxed which I love!

Have you guys ever thought that you have pieces that are similar to each other and you don’t know how to distinguish them when worn with different outfits?

I think I have too much chambray shirts. Well, I’ve got 3 (I thinks it’s a little bit excessive) but it’s a versatile piece and it’s a classic, very easy to mix and match with other pieces. The thing is, it’s very easy for the shirts to be identical with each other since they are made with the same material. The key is accessorizing! Having the right accessories can totally change the whole ensemble. Having them in different shades will also help. Just like a pattern. When you change the color of it, it’s a new pattern! The same applies with chambray. Different shades = Different shirts.

I hope you guys liked my outfit. This is all for now. Ciao! Photos - Angela Torres
