Preppy Girl Through and Through





















Shoes: local store | Bag: lovelyshoes.net| Eyewear: Chanel | Everything else: thrifted


First 2014 post! I'm so stoked because I've never kept a blog this long. I always find myself fleeting from one blog to another since I discovered the blogosphere back in 2004.

Anyway, how was your New Year's Eve celebration? I spent it in the comforts of my home, shivering in fear. Kidding! Okay, maybe there's some truth to that. You see, lighting up firecrackers is a NYE tradition in the Philippines because the noise is supposed to drive away the evils lurking everywhere. But firecrackers are dangerous and they cause one too many accidents. That includes fires and people getting their hand amputated after lighting up a defective firecracker. Sounds morbid? Wait till you hear about crazy people who have guns and shooting them in the air. Stray bullets will wind up in someone else's home, and if they're unlucky, someone will get hit. Last time I checked, two babies already died after being hit in the head by stray bullets. The firecrackers I can avoid but stray bullets?

I'm starting my blog on a negative note, I know, but really, someone in our government has to do something about this. Firecrackers during NYE are no longer fun, especially since they camouflage the noise of guns, which are clearly more life-threatening.

Anyway, on to a more positive, more style blog-worthy post: this outfit for today. It's a bit windy today, hence the varsity sweater. I'm really such a sucker for varsity sweaters and I squealed a little bit when I saw this one. Wore it with the plaid skirt I've been meaning to wear for quite some time now. 

This year, I'm challenging myself to come up with new looks using old stuff in my closet. Most of my clothes only get to be worn once so that clearly has to change. I'm really hoping I can stick to that resolution.

I love fresh starts and clean slates! It's like you've been absolved of all your shortcomings. January is also my birthday month so it's clearly a great month for changes and new resolutions. 

What about you guys? What are you trying to accomplish this year?

    People are pretty stupid with firecrackers here too. This year we had a cozy NYE indoors. :-)

  3. Niiiiice mostly-thrifted outfit! That skirt was such a great find and looks so cool with that uni jumper ;) And I also can definitely get on board with your new years resolution!

    I also avoid my city on new years not because of firecrackers or guns, but crazy random acts of violence - a young guy got killed at nye celebrations just because some other guy hit him because he was drunk :(
