In a country like the Philippines, being in simple, comfortable, and reliable basics is key in staying fresh and cool all day to battle the climate. Thankfully though, we've been having cooler weather lately and other people have even started wearing their favorite jackets out! For today's post, I wanted to share this outfit that can easily turn into an evening outfit with a few simple tweaks!
Burgundy and black have become recurring colors in my outfits right now. It's become sort of an obsession, really. The two colors work so well together and I will always love the understated classiness that these colors give! Not to mention, I'm convinced that burgundy is my absolute favorite color of all time!
It's no question that my closet is abundant with Uniqlo's great basic clothes and this 3/4 top is probably my favorite purchase! Aside from being in my favorite color, I love that the knit material gives it a lot of character and texture, and it just feels so soft and comfortable!
Since I was going shopping that day, I made sure to bring my ever-trusty sling from SM Accessories. Also added a classy watch to give the look a more dressy vibe.
Spazzed out when I saw these sneakers at Payless as I've been looking for the perfect pair of burgundy sneakers for as long as I can remember! The thing about red sneakers is that for some reason, they seem to work with almost any outfit. Even if it doesn't exactly go with the colors of your outfit, it just works! At least, that's my experience with them. Definitely check these out if you're looking for a comfortable pair with great looks to boot!

Since I also had an event in the evening, I made it a point to turn this casual look into something party-appropriate by simply throwing on a great fitting navy blue blazer from UNIQLO! It's amazing how much a blazer can add to an outfit that every guy should have one. For more formal parties, you can ditch the sneakers and wear your favorite pair of brogues!
