Maroon Valley

Christmas is just a few days away so I decided to wear a color I never wore for an outfit post before. I don’t know exactly why I had not tried it because I actually like maroon a lot. There’s something about it that gives me warm fuzzies, reminds me so much of love and celebration during Christmas time.

It’s also my school colorβ€”kinda weird hearing myself saying “my” school though. About 10 years ago, I only dreamed of becoming an Isko, the term used to call people who study at the University of the Philippines. Now here I am living just outside its gates and literally attending classes. They say dreams don’t wait. Maybe some, but I’ve always believed that we can achieve anything, at any age, as long as we persevere.

IMG_3560I haven’t achieved all of my goals yet, but I can sense that I’m getting there. Sometimes I would even feel very restless when I don’t have anything productive scheduled in a day, especially during my break from work. It always feels like I wasted an opportunity to do something worthwhile. So being in graduate school helps lessen that feeling of restlessness.

I wasn’t supposed to buy anything before next week but I couldn’t help it when I saw this bag at Dorothy Perkins. I’ve been searching for a good black bag, so when I saw this I knew I had to get it. Same goes for these Bershka maroon pants that I got from Branded for Less and bowler hat.

Every day it’s becoming increasingly cold here in the Philippines so I took out my fantastic furry sweater which I bought for a very low price from an online tiangge. These pretty shoes, on the other hand, are from World Balance. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of sportswear because I’m not a very sporty person. But I was so surprised when I found out that World Balance actually has a line of shoes fit for girly women like me. As many of you would expect, I chose the pair with pink on it. I just thought these would be perfect when I finally sign up to a yoga class. They’re very comfortable, and the insoles feel incredibly soft. And it meshed well with the whole outfit, too. World Balance has just released their Sports Active and Street Casual Collection and I’m pretty sure there’s a pair there you’d be interested in. You can check them out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
