LOOKBOOK | A craftily subtle Baguio City shirt
Nothing says Baguio City more than pine trees and the cool mountain air. When our team at the office went there last summer for our now annual summer outing, I was sadly confined at the hospital. But at least I got this red souvenir tee (yeah, we're so cheesy we've been having souvenir t-shirts for 2 years now).
Designed by a colleague, it's basically the coordinates for the place. I love its simplicity and I thought, what a crafty way to wear a "Baguio City" shirt without actually having to wear something with "Baguio City" printed on it! And I finally got to wear it while at the so-called City of Pines!
Of course you can wear anything with a t-shirt. Here I paired it with light khaki joggers with blue and red cuffs. Together with the light brown sneakers I just picked up, they bring out the red in this ensemble. For accessories, I wore a bunch of colorful beads and a watch.
And then I was just there enjoying good food (at Lemon and Olives, which I'll write about later) and the pleasantly cool air. That it was foggy was also a delight, of course.
Now should we also have souvenir shirts of other places in coordinates instead of their names? Nah, that would be overkill.
