Shredded Thoughts & Make-Up Won't Make Up For The Missing Piece
Blue and yellow - I always love combining these two bright colors together because there's something very radiant and warm about them. Lately the weather here in the Philippines has been a bit cold and windy, and even though I welcome the cooler temperature, sometimes it can feel kind of depressing when there's not much sunshine. That's why I opted to wear these two colors, blue and yellow. They are very pleasing to the eye and exude a little bit of a happier vibe.

Also, it's midterms week for me and I am absolutely dying! I still have 3 exams to go and I'm already mentally and physically exhausted. Putting on a bright outfit was my failed attempt at lifting my spirits a little.

What I've noticed about people here in the Philippines is that most of them are afraid to experiment and combine bold colors and prints together. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Fashion is supposed to be bright, bold, and fearless!
Don't be afraid to mix and match colors and prints. If you don't know where to start, here are a few color combos that you can try out: blue+yellow, blue+green, yellow+green, pink+yellow, orange+blue, purple+yellow, red+yellow . . . .
The trick is to keep the rest of your outfit neutral. Say, for example, if you were wearing a yellow top with a purple blazer, then keep the rest of your ensemble neutral by choosing blacks, greys, or nudes. This is called color-blocking :)
When it comes to mixing prints, the best way to see what works and what doesn't is to try them out. Trust me, I've seen people wearing two different prints that I would never would have thought would look good together but actually do. The key is to choose one print with large patterns and another print with smaller patterns. Maybe I'll do a blog post later on dedicated solely to mixing and matching prints.
Since my outfit was quite simple today, I relied on the power of accessories to take my look to the next level. And for me, that meant piling on studs, studs, studs! If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you'd know that I am an absolute freak when it comes to studs lol :)
Let me know what you guys think of this casual outfit!
