Studs & Skulls


The cold weather is pretty much gone, which means summer's pretty much here. The unbearable heat here in the Philippines tells me that it's time to say goodbye to my favorite style essentials: blazers, jackets, and boots. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever blogged an OOTD yet where I'm not wearing something with long sleeves. Well, I'm about to break that tradition. Read on.





This is my first time in a long time where I'm wearing a sleeveless top with nothing to cover up my arms. Usually (as you may very well know) I'd pair this chambray top with a cardigan or blazer, but I was afraid I would die of heat stroke LOL. To tell you the truth, I'm a bit insecure about my shoulders and arms, but I'm trying to be more comfortable in my own skin.




My outfit today has a bit of an edgy vibe, don't you think? I guess you could blame the rocker in me. I named my blog "The Stylish Bipolar" for a reason - just like my life and its ups & downs, my style also undergoes major changes depending on my mood. One day I'd be all dolled up in a preppy outfit with a structured blazer, perfect hair, and layers of pearls (this is the side of me that strives for perfection) and the next I'd be wearing ripped jeans and skull prints (this is my rebellious side).





I've always had a strange obsession with skull prints. I don't really know why. I find them really cute and I love how they add a touch of punk to any ensemble. I tend to wear them in small doses, though, like this black scarf I have on. 




SLEEVELESS CHAMBRAY TOP from Copper
SKULL-PRINTED SCARF from Thailand
RIPPED SKINNY JEANS from Forever 21


STUDDED CLUTCH from Aldo
SNAKESKIN SANDALS from Aldo

Incidentally, does anyone know where I can buy a pair of ultra ripped/distressed skinny jeans here in the Philippines? Like the ones where they almost look like you don't have any pants on (if that makes any sense). I used to see them being sold almost everywhere when I was still living in Thailand but I can't seem to find any here. Oh well . . . I'll keep hunting!

In the meantime, let me know what you guys think of this outfit!

  4. Yes you're right. I can really feel that summer is almost here. To be honest I already miss the sweater weather :(

    Anyway, it must be the skull scarf and the ripped jeans that gave the edgy vibe! Super love the outfit and you look great! What's there to be insecure about? :)

    Have a nice day! xx
