OOTD: Classic

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

     It's been a long time since I posted an outfit of the day post of my son. I presume you've seen my Instagram post of his latest OOTD. It's not easy to make kids pose in front of the camera. If your kid is cooperative, you're lucky. You can take outfit shots anytime, anywhere. But in my case, it's always a trial and try kind of game.

     When my son is so game to pose, I'm trigger happy that's why I always bring my mirrorless camera with me. I don't have a scheduled post for outfit shots that's why I'm so happy when an unplanned photo session happens. Sharing my son's OOTD that was taken after attending a birthday party at Robinsons Magnolia.

Cole Haan 2017 Fall Collection at Ayala Malls The 30th

Thursday, August 31, 2017

     What qualities do you look for or consider when buying a pair of shoes? For me, it's always comfort because I have a very, when I say very it's very, very, sensitive feet. I get blisters and corns easily that's why I always make sure to buy the style that will take me to many places, literally.

     I never thought that an expensive brand such as Cole Haan has designs that are fashionable yet comfortable to wear. Extraordinary comes to life when Cole Haan Philippines opened their 7th store at Ayala Malls The 30th and I'm one of the lucky guests who got the first dibs on the reveal of their 2017 Fall Collection. See photos and highlights of the store opening below :)

     The store follows the design of the brand’s stores in the United States. The neutral color palette that's traditional and modern best describes the 107-square meter space. It is well lit that's why I was able to take a nice photo to show the details of the shoes. The display includes men's and women's footwear, apparel, handbags and accessories.

I was in college back then and in one of our unplanned meeting, he was sporting a brown sneakers with the word Gola printed on the lower side of the shoes.

OOTD: White Walls

Saturday, April 23, 2016

     If you're a fan of the movie- Cars, prolly you're thinking that the title of this post will showcase those white walls! Cars movie fanatics surely have an idea that I'm talking about white wall tires. Well, this is Kenzo's second outfit of the day (OOTD) post for this year and I'm excited to share the outfit details below. 

     But first, the title of the post is somewhat connected with the word 'white', not the white wall tires that was mentioned in the movie (the scene of McQueen, Luigi, and Guido) because it's more of the color of Kenzo's outfit. Since white sneakers are sooo in, let me share with you his white kicks and why I chose the style and the brand after the jump :)
OOTD: White Walls
     So here's a short story about the brand and style of Kenzo's white sneakers. By the way, the hubby and I still believe in the saying "old school is cool" that's why we have chosen K-Swiss. If you're a 90's baby, I'm sure that you have heard of the brand before. We saw this white sneakers on display at Rookie USA Fairview Terraces and I fell in love with it immediately.
OOTD: White Walls
Top- Converse

Bottom- Uniqlo Easy Pants

Shoes- K-Swiss Hoke Strap Sneakers

Socks- OshKosh B'gosh

     I asked hubby's opinion first before buying this sneakers. And because he's a fan of classic and simple style sneakers, we agreed to buy the sneakers for Kenzo's P.E. shoes this coming school year but because it's simply stylish, Kenzo's been abusing the shoes already. Hahaha! 
OOTD: White Walls
K-Swiss Hoke Strap White
     Okay, so much for the shoes! We also bought this white Converse shirt at Rookie USA because it's on sale. For every cash payment transaction, buyers can score Converse and Levi's shirt for only Php 200. The original price of this shirt is Php 600+. What a steal!!! I'm not sure if the promo still applies until today though :(
OOTD: White Walls
     Last look how white this K-Swiss Hoke Strap sneakers because it looks different right now. Not that white white since Kenzo wears this more than twice a week. It's a bit hard to maintain white sneakers especially if an active kid wears it. Expect that it will get dirty every now and then. 
OOTD: White Walls
     More than the maintenance of white sneakers, I'm happy that I've chosen this classic style. Simple yet stylish and wearable. Hope that Kenzo's feet will grow a little slower than the average rate. I want him to really enjoy wearing this sneakers because it's easy to style and yes, it's comfy too. This is Kenzo's outfit of the day (OOTD) when we visited KidZania Manila weeks ago and witnessed the launch of National Art and Design Academy.

Until here mommies, let me know what you think of Kenzo's White Walls OOTD :)

Good Times!~
