Tog du jour: Colours and Cut-offs

Wishing I can say today’s tog du jour was inspired by the current season but I have to admit that this is a typical everyday outfit for me. Yes, a cut-off has become a staple and I would simply rotate my shirts, camis or some breezy top. What I can say is that today, Easter Sunday, I felt like wearing something colourful. It was a simple, hassle-free, happy look. I guess I needed a bit of colour to un-dampen the mood I’m in over the last few weeks. I’m wishing that I’ll be able to start my week better.

How do you handle situations wherein you know you’re attracting selfish, greedy, ungrateful people? (See the sort of negativity I’m currently surrounded with? Sigh.)

Moving on.

Yes, colour! I’d like to wear something soft or bright and fun — sets me in a lighter mood.

My current everyday bag is this sling I recently bought at Aldo Liquidation in Solenad. It only retailed for Php 700.00 and I thought it wasn’t a bad deal. And I was quite excited to introduce this particular blue shade into my personal style. Then again, I’ve been way too attracted to anything blue lately. Case in point, this Aldo clutch that has some blue on it and another clutch I have yet to share with you folks.

Anyway, this bag surprisingly can handle all my daily necessities and keeps my hands free to hold other things — perks of using a sling. I can also appreciate that I don’t need to worry about leaving it since I keep it slung at all times.

Colour and cut-offs made my day a bit better. I was a whole lot more productive — even managed to squeeze in a bit of reading and a few personal errands. How about you? How did you you spend your Easter Sunday?
