Just went through a new batch of items from online menswear shopping site East Dane that have been anointed "Editors' Pick." Quoting fashion director Jonathan Evans, he said "Right now, it's all about paring things down. Colors should be a little more muted; graphics, a bit more subtle." His choice picks are spot on and I'm sharing a few of these with you.
Lazy Sunday. There was a soft drizzle at one point. Before I headed out I enjoyed some "me" time. Just me and the camera. And no one else.
It's obvious I have a love affair with joggers at the moment. Such a comfy piece of clothing, I feel so relaxed in them. However "sporty" its origins were, it's very versatile you can easily dress it up or down. I even paired these very same drop-crotch joggers with boots once. This time, however, I opted for the more obvious choice: sneakers.
A snug or tight-fitting shirt is a good contrast to the pants's laid-back vibe, even adding to its sporty feel, but here I went for loose all the way. Not that it's hip-hop loose, though; just a little less restrictive to one's movement. This top, in fact, is actually a full size bigger than my usual size.
They may be full-length joggers but I sometimes pull up the hems (the cuffed design allows me to do that) for an even more casual look.
Ironically I don't jog.
___________ Striped henley and drop-crotch joggers (both H&M); sneakers (Zalora).
Never mind my flabby tummy here. Or my surgery scars. But aren't you excited for beach season yet? I know it's still winter in most countries but hey, let's all think ahead about having fun in the sun. And while you're at it, how about slowly building your beach wardrobe with swim shorts? And if you're not really particular about wearing pieces from last season, a lot of items are on sale!
This was last Monday after a short visit to Malabon and Caloocan--which to me, by the way, are already out of town trips. Here I was pondering on the inevitable: that our 5-day break from work was already coming to a close because Pope Francis had just left.
Though there's no such thing as winter in this part of the world, still we're enjoying some bit of cooler temperatures. I know the prospect of snow just looks so beautiful in photos and that in reality it can be quite the nuisance. But anyway, whether Elsa is still at it or whether the ice is already starting to melt, I think we can all agree that it's still fairly cold out there.
Here are a few looks I've put together for you:
The office guy
You wear a shirt, you wear a tie, whatever. You wear an overcoat outdoors. You may be a bit hesitant to deviate from the sea of black, blue and gray but why not start with injecting a few pieces with a different color?
Victor coat from Rag & Bone. Wool herringbone, cashmere collar.
PS by Paul Smith Hawaiian girl print shirt. Yes, we're looking forward to summer.
Today Pope Francis arrives in Manila for a state and pastoral visit, bringing back memories from two decades ago when then Pope John Paul II came to the Philippines for World Youth Day. It was a slew of activities back then from January 10 through 15, 1995. And yes, I was there.
What a short week it's going to be! Thanks to the visiting Pope Francis, our government has declared some special holidays while his Holiness is here. But that doesn't mean it's not going to be a hectic one. Nope. Not one bit.
It's the second workday of the year and I still haven't recovered from the holidays. If it's any indication, apparently I still can't let go of our Christmas tree. I know, taking it down, along with all other Yuletide decor you've once so excitedly put up, can be a drag.
