SUIT & TIE







Outfit: Ben Sherman Philippines blazer (Special PHP 2,395), Wharton plain white button-down shirt (PHP 995), SM Accessories woven neck tie (PHP 250), Hickok leather belt (available in SM Department Stores), tailored Zara pants and Topman loafers


As much as I'd love to be seen wearing a suit everyday, realistically we all know it's kinda impractical... I was really happy with this get-up though, as I had the opportunity to use this outfit for an event. All these clothes that I picked up were just on special items I found at particular stores. Items like the Ben Sherman blazer are actually easy finds and believe it or not, they have so many items that are discounted, you can find discounts up to 70% off! You should check it out the next time you see a Ben Sherman outlet in your local mall.

That's the thing with me... I rarely go out of the way to purchase brand new items unless it's something really unique that I know I gotta have, because like any other person, I also need to save up too right? or diba? hehe.

The best way I've been able to stay on track with current sales to get the bang for my buck is to just simply go out with friends and visit different malls on a weekly basis. For me, personally, it's refreshing to go to a different mall and I get to hang out with my friends. I also like to go to the mall as often as I can, because it keeps me stay active outdoors and I always look to see what I could potentially save up for next - That's my way of finding inspiration. 

It's easy to find inspiration on social media or on the internet but when you see a product up-close and in-person... well, hey... that's a whole different story that allows you to open your mind, so you can figure out how you're going to save up for that item! Wouldn't you agree so yourself?

Hi Guys!! I hope you are all ok. I know it's been a while since I've last blogged but just so you know I'm back at it again. In case you're wondering or concerned, I'm still keeping myself busy in other areas, although it's nice to take a quick pit-stop and enjoy what it's like to put the phone down and enjoy the company of my family and friends.

Just recently my family came to visit me from Australia. We had a wonderful time catching up. The separation-anxiety or sepanx (haha) still gets me until this day, but I learn to deal with it. However, not to worry I still have a blogger's spirit at heart.

Yesterday was an amazing day for me where I had the opportunity to shoot for a new brand here in the Philippines. Please keep an eye out for Knit Socks. They are new brand of socks with all the coolest colors and designs, perfect for adding a pop of color to your OOTD. Since I had to attend a shoot, I thought it would be nice to prepare a relaxed, yet ready-for-the-job outfit that I could also document and blog. I figured, if I stick with a button-up shirt that I got from Vanishing Elephant and Cheap Monday pants, all I have to do is alter my pants and roll them down if I decide to go out later that evening. No stress!!
