hat: the royal we, sneakers: muji, purse: min and mia.

an all black outfit that is highly overdue (i dyed my hair a few days ago, so i actually dont look like this anymore). i’ll seriously never get sick of this hat. on my most recent trip to japan, i was in the market for a new hat, since they literally have the best of the best. i ended up spending all of my money on other things, so until next time tokyo. lately, i’ve also been mixing it up with my nails. a little proud of this manicure i did on my own! black polka dots on nude, along with one of my faves, chanel – la particuliere, with black edges.

I had a 3 day weekend, and decided to make my way to Manila with Seongmin. Seongmin used to live in Manila, working as a golf tour guide and golf instructor. I was more keen on going to the beach, but due to rain and our time taken up by golfing, that didn’t happen. I was pretty proud of my newbie golf skills and still manage to squeeze in my foodie finds!

The Gramercy

If you ever go to Manila, I highly recommend you stay at the Gramercy. There are a ton of super affordable rooms listed, and I heard its one of the most, if not the most, luxurious complex in Manila. Its quite new, and conveniently enough, has a famous bar and club in the building. We wanted to go check out some nightlife, but on all occasions, we accidentally fell asleep. Let me tell you, GOLF HITS YOU HARD.

Hangouts at Greenbelt Mall

Greenbelt was a pretty standard experience, but I was really into all of the trees surrounding the mall! think its fair to say that Manila is not a shopping destination. I did get a chance to meet up with my friend, JP Singson, who I met way back in 2009 at Paris Menswear Fashion Week. I was so happy to get to finally see him again! He runs a fashion blog: JP on Fashion Speed, and has a shop and showroom. He took me for a traditional Pinoy dessert called Bibingka. Don’t let the combination of coconut and salted century eggs fool you, it was very addictive!

Le Petit Soufflé

Ironically in the building right next to where I was staying, I made all my foodie dreams come true, about 2 hours before leaving to the airport. I ate my way through the restaurants in such short time. Le Petit Soufflé was having its soft open when we went. Style points for the beautiful interior. Since we had randomly come across this place, we had no expectations, but the food ended up being mind-blowingly good. Japanese fusion food done right. We ate the sesame crusted tuna salad, with sesame wasabi dressing, and a strawberry-lychee-basil parfait with their signature matcha ice cream.

Right near Le Petit Soufflé and The Gramercy, is Hole in the Wall. A wonderful collective of must-eats, in a cozy cool setting. Since we were really short on time, we grabbed a smoked meat sandwich and Philippino craft beer. There was about 10 other things I would’ve loved to try from Hole in the Wall, so I’ll be sure to make my way there a little earlier in the game next time.

min&mia – almost classic button down, min&mia – pinstripe pants, and muji – clean white sneakers.

although my work experience has been all over the board, my employers have always been fairly relaxed about the dress code. i think there is nothing wrong with looking clean, but sticking with comfort! i think the first mistake we all make when we are about to go for that first important job interview, or first day of the internship, is that you want to look like this “faux-dult”.. so you show up in an awkward hand me down suit from your big sister. ok maybe that was just me. im not about stuffy outfits in the workplace! you are there all day, you probably have a long list of daunting tasks ahead of you, you are sweating from coffee and running about, yet cold from the aircon on full blast. there’s a lot going on in the workplace. the last thing i want is to be wearing high heels, a tight skirt and some funky thing that passes as a top.

keep it simple, and keep it real! you’ll end up looking a lot smarter in the end.

black and white is always the easiest uniform. for when im feeling like a bit of a garconne, i go for these distressed square cut-out jeans. i’m a bit afraid of real boyfriend jeans, since im not the tallest around. these are the perfect balance; roomy, but its not like im drowning in them either. when looking for a boyfriend jean, distressed and/or cropped is key.

i have a tiny-big announcement to make: at the end of the week, along with my boyfriend and style pal, i’ll be launching min&mia! we are only launching with womenswear, and its mostly going to be minimal and monochromatic pieces. i’m really excited about this, so i hope you can send some support my way! it’ll be worth the wait, but for now, follow us on insta: @minandmia, and like us on facebook: min and mia.

honestly, unless its vintage or very expensive, its really hard to come by unique pieces these days. when i found this coat at a-land, i knew i had to have it. of course there were other stunning colors too (that would also be a lot less vulnerable to my clumsy ways), but this crisp white was definitely the way to go. i can dress it up or down, but it always seems to make me look put together. the thick buckles on the sleeves and one at the lapel are absolutely perfect. i should also mention that despite the high quality of the materials used, it only cost $130!

these days, i can’t get enough of bandanas. i think my style has always incorporated some childhood elements, and at this point, this is as close as i’ll get to being a girl guide or cub scout. i’ve been all about this soft white bandana, with a frilled edge and topped off with two handmade crocheted cherries. i usually wear it just tied around my neck, or on my wrist.
