Spring is here! In Philippine context, that means we say bye to our cloudy afternoons and chilly nights, and say hello to the blistering midday heat, 6:30 PM sunsets, and humid nights that got us sweating balls.
I’ve been fascinated with the Autumn/Winter line the local stores have been releasing. The warm camels and maroons, luxurious suede and other cozy materials. However with our current high temperature days ahead, I think wearing the latter would be self-torture. So I paid a visit to one of my favorite stores, Forever 21, and hauled a lot from their light pastel clothing and denim collection… the perfect pair for a bright sunny day.

Look #1: Street Chill
I don’t know what was up with this day but it was just super hot to the point that I really didn’t want to dress up anymore. Just kidding, I wanted to dress up, but in the most comfy and I-just-randomly-pulled-these-pieces-from-my-closet kind of way. I wanted to wear less fabric, but didn’t want anything tight fitting or something I couldn’t move in without worrying if my butt cheeks were showing — thus, the boy shorts.
This outfit was really refreshing and something new to be honest. I remembering vowing not to wear shorts that weren’t short shorts. I mean, what was the point of wearing shorts when they weren’t short, right? But nah, these felt great. Thank you Kendall Jenner for your inspiration. I also remember telling myself I wouldn’t wear two bright colors at the same time. I was afraid I might look messy and not put together overall but I guess that’s the magic of soft pastel colors.
What I’m wearing:
Cap by Supahshop | Top & Boy Shorts from Forever 21 | Shoes by Adidas | Specs by Shade.specs
Look #2: Dressy Classy
When people think of denim, they usually associate it with being casual, informal, and other things along that line. If you want to dress up with denim, you might want to check out this ensemble.
I wore this for MAC’s event. Good thing I decided to dress up ’cause boy, that was one of a hella fancy event but yes of course, it’s MAC after all. I think pairing a clean piece with a good pair of heels and a sleek purse automatically makes something a little bit appropriate for the champagne and fancy finger food. Topped it with matching brown scarf, watch, and belt.
What I’m wearing:
Jumpsuit by Forever 21 | Scarf & Bag by Céline |Belt & Shoes by Charles & Keith | Watch by Triwa
Look #3: Chic Chill
This look is pretty similar to the first look. However if you’re the type who’s a bit one the frilly lace-y side, you might prefer this one instead.
Boyfriend jeans are usually paired with equally boyish pieces. loose or fitted plain shirts, tanks, or a button down shirt. Why not go for something completely contrasting from the worn down slouchy look of these borrowed jeans? Think: lazy Coachella minus all the crazy fringes and bling + sneakers.
What I’m wearing:
Necklace, Top, and Jeans by Forever 21 | Shoes by Adidas
Which of the three looks do you prefer or scream ‘you’? Do you think these ensembles are sunny day friendly enough? Let me know in comments below!
Also, be sure to check out Forever 21‘s racks when you can. Last time I checked, They have loads of new denim and beach/music festival appropriate pieces (and a lot are coming by the way).
