Deep blue Pacific

Cameo-050214_01

This is what I wore last Wednesday, after being encouraged by an editorial from the FT’s How to Spend It that, perhaps, pleated and baggy trousers are back.

Not that trends ever stopped me from resurrecting my high school pants, haha.

Am writing this on a Saturday morning, when I should have published it yesterday, on a Friday. Am up early since I slept early as well.

Was supposed to be readying for another roadtrip with friends, this time to Pampanga. But unexpected circumstances have once again redirected my plans.


Cameo-050214_05

On the bright side, I’ll be able to return to my daily To Do list.


Cameo-050214_06

Which includes quietly meditating about the mysteries of the universe – (half) kidding!


Cameo-050214_07

It’s time to roll up my sleeves and get back to the usual reading, writing, and designing.


Cameo-050214_08

Funny thing to note that when I wore this ensemble to work a few days ago, a colleague said that I looked more masculine. Must have been the haircut.


Cameo-050214_09

Couldn’t have been just the pleats? Has it been that long since I last wore a decent long-sleeved shirt to work?

Shirt, Dunhill, thrifted
Denim jacket, Cyber Jeans, thrifted
Trousers, G200
Belt, A.P.C.
Leather sneakers, Fred Perry
Socks, Uniqlo

In any case, I would take every chance I get to wear one of my favourite combinations: baggy trousers and sneakers.

The comfort of the loose fit somehow gives one the much-needed peace of mind to combat the possibly toxic stress at the office.


Cameo-050214_13

Heaven forbid I sleep late again then wake up early for the gym, all energized, only to slump on my desk to snore loudly! (My apologies, Naomi!)


Cameo-050214_14

HR would gladly tap my back and remind me of the time management classes they spent a fortune on.


Cameo-050214_15

Well, I’m wide awake now. And the morning is glorious.


Cameo-050214_16

Miraculously, I was up ahead of the group of ladies that exercised to loud club music.


Cameo-050214_17

Ah, Saturdays! One more day in God’s week for even more creativity.


Cameo-050214_18

I have waited for you for so long.


Cameo-050214_19

If only some people out there would be as patient.


Cameo-050214_20

Yes, I’m talking to you, kind “mother-in-law”.


Cameo-050214_21

So what’s on my list? Up with a jolt of coffee, my first thought is to get a shower and run out of the house.


Cameo-050214_22

It must be back to the list.


Cameo-050214_23

Back to building. This time inspired by an article on Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy from the Business of Fashion
