Keeping cool while looking stylish during the hot summer months can be a challenge for even the most fashionable girl. If you're looking for an outfit that can look chic and beat the heat at the same time, we suggest you try pairing your cool vest, a tank, and your cutest pair of shorts! Not only is this type of layering perfect for the summer, it can also be styled a ton of ways for you to create your best looks!

Glam. Dress up this combo by choosing two seperate, statement pieces! Wear your sequined and embellished vest over your metallic high-waist shorts. Simply wear a simple tank under the vest, slip into your suede pumps, and keep the accessories to a minimal for a summer party outfit.

Camo. Get in on the trend and sport a long camo vest. Match this with a pair of khaki shorts for a safari-inspired outfit. Accessorize with combat boots and your aztec print backpack, and you're ready for an adventure!

Grunge. Take this pairing back two decades ago by choosing to wear a vintage-print vest with black, lace-ip shorts. Finish off this look with sheer tights and booties and you're ready for that much-awaited concert with friends!

Denim on denim. Nothing is more chic than by wearing this combo in denim! Just remember to differentiate the two by picking different shades or patterns on your vest and shorts. Keep this look summer-friendly by pairing it with a white tee and printed accessories.

Tried this style during the Summer Solstice! :)

Rock out. Just because it's summer, it doesn't mean you can't rock leather! Grab your leather vest, faux or not, and wear it over your tie-dye shirt for a vintage feel. Edge out this look by opting to go with a pair of studded cut-offs. Wear this to a festival with a pair of flat booties and a flower crown.

How would you style your vest and shorts? Share it with guys by leaving a comment!

Philippine Fashion Week 2013: SM Ladies' Fashion and Parisian Shoes and Bags

Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2013 was kick-started with SM Ladies' Fashion and Parisian Shoes and Bags' show last Wednesday night, it started at 8:00 and ended at past 8:30 so it's a half an hour showcase of beautiful clothes and shoes!

But instead of showcasing the Holiday 2013 collection, SM Ladies' Fashion and Parisian Shoes and Bags decided to stay current and feature the Summer 2013 collection instead.  Presenting pieces from Studio S, Philosophy, NY Square, Weekender, Folio, SM Classics, and Coco Cabana, SM Ladies' Fashion sets to provide us women with the chicest options to suit a variety of lifestyles. Here are some photos from the runway showing the looks I loved:

Ayan talaga pinaka peg ko! Love the Black and Gold combination plus yung details! Napaka royale tignan para sakin!

Other Looks:

Divine Lee, Ingrid Chua-Go, and Ruffa Gutierrez also worked with the brand by walking down the runway wearing SM Ladies' Fashion and Parisian Shoes and Bags.

Ruffa Gutierrez

Ms. Divine Lee!

I love that the collection was styled so well and everything is wearable. You may not be able to see the shoes that clearly in the photos but they all polished the looks nicely. All shoes are from Parisian Shoes and Bags and they came up with two new collections: Mod and Music Fest.

MOD Shoes
 Super bet ko the shoes! So sophisticated! <3
Music Fest Bags

Love the bags as well! If you know, I am a total sucker of bags!! 

It was really a great experience to part of this event! And of course lucky enough to grab some last minute tickets to the show! Thank you Ms. Aisa Ipac! :) Totally memorable and unforgettable! 

How about you? Have you attended one yet? :)

When it comes to summer looks, there are two pieces that are always synonymous to the season—sunglasses and dresses! Wear both together and you instantly have an outfit that will brighten up any day. Although the combination may seem simple, there are tons of ways you can dress it up! Just take a look at  these  for an idea of how you can come up with looks for yourself.

Edge out a pretty peplum dress with some polarized lenses! Make your look even cuter by matching colors and hues. This look is perfect for a fun Saturdate with your girlfriends.

Look laid-back in a flowy summer dress paired with cat eye sunnies! Fashion forward and oh-so feminine, all in one perfect outfit.

Rock out a white lace dress with a classic pair of aviators! This look is timeless and versatile for any occassion. Add some metallic bling and you're set for a formal affair!

It can't get anymore classic than a white dress shirt paired with black wayfarers! Make this outfit look even more polished with a blazer and some pumps.

Channel the past with a mod look! Go with round-frame sunnies and a button down a-line dress. Add some tights and lace details to make your outfit even more authentic looking.

So what do you think? Despite some pouring of rain, It's still SUMMER! :)

Neon Pop

I attended an event last May 22 at Glorietta for the launch of the new watch of Tomato! And here's what I wore. 

I wore this Neon Orange top because I think it will suit the event especially because it will be colorful! This neon orange top will surely catch an attention of anyone who will see it because of it's bright color added with an leopard printed shorts from Copper!

Also wore a statement necklace from Gold Couture. It's collar design added details for the plain colored shirt I am wearing. It gives a classy effect that really mixed well with the shorts I am wearing.

The arm candies I am wearing are  Pink Ponytail, Gold and Silver bracelets. The pink ponytail added another pop to this outfit because of it's neon color.

One of this year's biggest must-have pieces is the pencil skirt! Whether it's in leather, lace, or cotton, it can instantly polish any outfit for a totally chic look. This summer, the best pairing for your pencil skirt is a casual t-shirt! Mixing this basic item for night with a day-appropriate tee creates a look that's interesting. If you're not sure how to wear this combo, here are five bloggers to serve as fashion inspiration!

Classic. Pair your favorite grey tee with your classic pencil skirt for a totally chic look. Add a statement necklace and a bright pair of stilettos to dress up your outfit!

Preppy. Opt to make this combo more preppy with a blaid buttondown shirt! Pair it with your denim pencil skirt and some pumps to make your look appropriate for your summer internship.

 Plain white tee. Make your faux leather pencil skirt look perfect for your day-date by pairing it with your go-to white t-shirt! Go for a boho-inpsired look with stacked necklaces and a pair of wedges.

Cropped. Update this combo by pairing your pencil skirt with a cropped tee. Choose one in bright hues and match your accessories with equally colorful pieces for a fun summer outfit!

 Monochromatic. Choose to wear this combo in one color but in different tones. A printed pencil skirt will look even more chic when belted and paired with quirky loafers!
