There are times when I’d browse through Tumblr before bed and wake up:
a) wanting to dress like someone fresh off of Paris Fashion Week
b) wanting to wear something celebrity street style dreams are made of (Dear Gigi Hadid, I SEE YOU GIRL!)
c) wanting to just wear the comfiest, most chill outfit I could cook up for the day
And although I’d love to wake up with option A, I find myself comfiest (and most me) in a mixture of options B and C. Besides, I have yet to save up for amazing fashion week-like items! I know, I know, you can pull that look off with budget friendly items – but let’s save that for a whole other blog post. 😉
I decided to wear these frayed cut-offs (because it was insanely humid that day), paired with my favorite basic staple – a plain white tee, and added a rugged, semi-acid washed jacket to add another element (
hopefully this is where the B of my options above play in) to this casual look. And I’d like to introduce you to my new backpack from Urban Traveller Co. AKA ONE OF THE BEST BACKPACKS I HAVE EVER OWNED!
It’s made from a heavy duty fabric called Quanta – which was especially developed to withstand crazy weather conditions / the usual wear & tear of everyday life. At first glance, you’d think that it’s just a plain ol’ backpack, but, I SWEAR, once you zip it open or feel it on your shoulders – you WILL FEEL how gooooood the quality of this bag is! My favorite parts? How spacious it is, a nicely padded compartment inside for my 15″ laptop and the smooth clicking buttons on the pocket in front. I believe this backpack is currently on sale as well! Where were you back in college Venque Classic backpack???
#YourEverydayCarry – this backpack might just be THE ONE! Order one for yourself on Urban Traveller Co.’s webpage or check out one of their branches at the UTC Pop-up Store, R2 Archaeology Wing (near National Bookstore), or at Rockwell Power Plant Mall, Makati City.
I also wore my Vans x Nintendo SK8 Hi’s (they say GAME OVER! on the soles) and added some pins onto my jacket. Pins and patches are definitely making a comeback / are already back – I just love how 90s trends keep resurfacing lately!
It’s all in the details – stacked rings, faded ombre hair, pins, neck texture brought to you by Meerkat, gold casio watch from Lazada, and a neutral colored backpack.
By the way, these outfit post photos have got to be my most favorite yet! My boyfriend, Paolo, always does his best to step up his “I have a blogger for a girlfriend” ways and I’m just so proud and happy. 🙂 HEHE! A hundred salutes to all the blogger boyfriends out there for supporting and loving us still, even if we make them take a bajillion photos anywhere, everywhere, and almost every date, with the same subject – us.
So, whether I’m feeling like an A, B, C, a mix of two, or all three, I know I’ll have my Paolo (yahee) take my OOTD. :3 HAHA!
I’m kidding! But, in all honesty, I am really grateful for him – obviously waaaay beyond just taking photographs and all! 🙂

I’ve missed posting outfit posts like these! Let me know if you want to see more of these again or if there are certain topics that you would like me to blog about. And stay tuned! There’s two new vlog posts coming up – a makeup tutorial and a haul! 😉
Have a great week and keep choosing to see the good in everything!
All the best,
