Looks like athletic-inspired, or "Sport Luxe," fashion is here to stay and I love how it gives me sort of an excuse to dress more for comfort than I already do. Haha! I've seen all of my favorite bloggers sport (pun unintended) this kind of look and do it oh so flawlessly! I've said it time and again that joggers are a short person's bane and I can definitely vouch for it. The problem was always that it made me look sloppy and a bit shorter. And it wasn't until I saw David Guison's look until I figured out a way around this problem. Read on to see what I mean! :)
Again, the blazer takes centerstage in this look, and I will probably try an all-dark look in the future but as for now, I made a more summer-appropriate choice with my signature neutral color palette of greys and browns. I'd like to think I put my own spin on David's super cool look, would you agree? :)
Instead of a sharp look, I went for a soft, relaxed feel that's perfect for lazy weekends. The blazer itself is loose and breezy which makes it *the* exception for dressing in this weather. No surprise there, this blazer is also from Uniqlo. It was part of their older collection way before they made it more structured like the one I wore here. Officially one of my favorite staples EVER.
Nabbed this cool foldover tote messenger from when I visited the Craft Collective Bazaar in Glorietta the week before. I hadn't planned on buying a bag, but this design comes so rarely in the Philippines that I knew I just had to get it! Also, I love that this was made by local Marikina company, De Alcantara. They have a ton of beautiful designs that are hard to find and are made in great quality too! Despite the lack of structure of this bag, it's surprisingly padded and I can see myself bringing it with me on trips where I just bring my smaller Fujifilm camera! :)
If you want to check them out, you can see some of their designs available at Lazada here! Super affordable and super lovely!
Excuse the dorky socks. Haha! Wore ankle socks because these sneakers still need breaking in and scrape against the back of my feet.

LOL at the family photobombing behind me. So what do you think of my own version of David Guison's look? :)
