The Girl Who Does Not Settle


Hey guys! How are you today? Is life treating you well?

It is finally -ber months, and I don't know if you feel the same way as I do but during these times, the days are going extremely fast. One time, it is just September and it's New York/ London Fashion Week, then the next thing you know it's already December, and Christmas is just around the corner.


But let's not get ahead of ourselves. Mental note to self.

Moving on, this is the second set of my shoot with one of my best friends, Jillian Ladia. If you haven't seen the first one, you can still do by clicking this link. Can I just say that Intramuros is really lovely and historic?

You know the saying "Bloom where you are planted."? Or "Don't bloom where you are planted. Uproot yourself and go where your heart is home."? Contradictory right? But, nevertheless, they are inspiring and thought-provoking. These actually are the vibe from this new look I have for you.

I love the image that this ensemble creates-- a flower amidst the ruins-- the beauty amidst the destruction. It basically tells us that when life is bringing you down, don't settle. Don't give up. Fight for your happiness.

It's amazing how the brick walls in the background highlighted the lightness and romanticism of the outfit. I initially styled this ensemble to help with the overbearing heat. The warm colors definitely fed off the extra heat that, for example, a black one will attract. Overall, if you wear these colors in the summer, it will give you the freshness that you deserve.
