LOOKBOOK | Spicing up your vacation wardrobe with matching prints

halfwhiteboy - matching satin printed shirt and shorts 01

Have you ever experienced seeing something on display, falling in love with it, then buying it but have no idea when or where you're going to wear it? So I saw this printed long-sleeve shirt with matching shorts on a mannequin and felt exactly just that.

The print, though dominantly floral, felt quite different from the usual summer prints I see. So I got both pieces even if I really didn't know whether the right occasion to wear them would come soon. Or at all. It didn't help that they're in a satin fabric, which makes the set even "harder" to wear. I mean, cotton or linen wouldn't be much of a problem, but shiny o'l satin?

They could of course be worn as separates but I had this image of myself wearing it as a set in some fancy beach resort. Well, summer already left and no such trip materialized. But when we set off for a quick getaway in Anya Resort Tagaytay (of which I'll write a review soon), I thought I could finally wear my matching printed shirt and shorts and celebrate all its loudness.

We could always try something other than t-shirt and shorts for our vacations, couldn't we? Up the ante of our OOTD game, perhaps?

Now I'm happy that I did. I wore some cream-colored loafers with my matching prints for a casual but chic look. Sunnies optional.
