Ruffles and Dots

When you wake up every morning at 6:30 AM, you don’t really have time (or energy) to accessorize and pile on pieces to your heart’s desire. Many of you may seem surprised that I still have to go to work as early as those of you who are employed at corporations. Even though I work for myself, I still leave the house at the early hours of the morning, hitch a ride with my sister on her way to work and get dropped off my atelier to start my full day of work, work and more work. Almost everyday, whenever I dress up, I tend to just grab and go. Well, actually more like I grab my phone, pick what I want to wear on my phone (since I photograph all my clothes) and show them to Erlindol (one of our household helps) then quickly run to the shower and prep. It’s always an amazing race at home.

As you can see, on this day, it was an exceptionally quick race out the door. No layering. No fuss. It’s just a sheer top paired with a simple ruffled skirt. I took the first neon necklace I spotted, grabbed one gold ring, got the first bag I saw hanging from my cabinet and swoooooosh, out the door! I didn’t even have time to comb my hair hence the braid. Now, it looks like my hair style is just part of the styling! Haha!

;

Since my hair was already in a braid, I thought of tying my buttondown in a knot instead of just tucking it inside my skirt. It goes well with the effortlessly sweet and charming hairstyle. It gives off a much more casual and carefree vibe, don’t you think?

To make up some more for my lack of preparation, I tried to put more effort into my makeup as well. Instead of the usual no makeup look, I went for a bold colored liner and bright lips. Actually, I seldom apply makeup at home. I almost always put makeup on inside my car. That’s how much of in a rush I am every single day!

Here’s a tip for fashion ninjas like me out there. (I prefer calling ourselves ninjas because we’re swift like that. LOL!) Try to visualize what you want to wear the night before, right before you fall asleep. Instead of counting sheeps, think of that one piece in your closet that you want to wear and what you think might work well with it. It’ll drastically cut down prep time for the morning after because at least, you already have an idea of what you’ll be looking for. Less hassle, more hustle. (Naks, pang quotable quotes yan!)

    I love your outfit! Have you ever blogged about your closet? I’m curious as to how you organize your clothes to maximize each piece since you like to play with your clothes a lot, wearing the same pieces of clothing but mixing them with others to create a totally different look each time.

      Thanks Chariz! My closet is a mess! Mostly because I’m running out of space haha! But we’re planning to redo our closet and bedroom so if that pushes through, a closet tour will be in the works! :)

    Hi Camille!

    This is my first ever comment on your blog. I’m a silent reader, haha! Anyhoo, you mentioned you select your clothing from your phone? Howww? XD Are you using an app for it or you just browse through the photos? Seems interesting enough to organize and visualize outfits ^^

    More power!

    This is you in a rush? Is this one of those slow clap moments like when you flew to HK/Singapore? Sounds like a morning straight out of an episode of Amazing Race. Nonetheless, still looking comfortably fab.

    Wow. You have a hectic schedule pala everyday. Where do you get all that energy when you have to balance your work in your office, this site, photoshoots and anything in between? Answering the comments pa nga lang, I think it’ll take time but I’m really happy you put an effort in reaching out to your readers in every way <3 You look charming and cute in this look! I got another tip from you, I should start thinking of what to wear the night before for my outfit the next day :) Thank you! ♥

    I totally agreed to you Miss Cams, I visualize my outfit or what I wear before go to sleep para di masyado mag cram in the morning lalo na pagnagmamadali ka talaga or malate ng gising. :-) thats what i do. I’m happy because we’re alike in this thing. :-D Super effortless beauty ang look mo. Bongga! eventhough you’re waking up early in the morning really ka ng rumampa. :-D
    Love it!

    Hi Ms. Camille! Your skin is glowing, I can’t see you anymore. Kidding! Hihihihi! You’re so beautiful, Ms. Camille. I don’t know, every time I look at you, I remember my sister. I think you’re so nice and simple and beautiful and … ugh I can’t them all, but I just wanna let you know that, to me, you’re so beautiful. Yeah, I’ve said that thrice. Hahaha! :) – L

    Oh, so every piece of clothing and accessories and all that you have a picture of? HEHE Cool. I don’t like people touching my clothes so I get them myself. I do that too, visualize what I want to wear, sometimes I prepare it already if I still have time. =)) Oh and the braid, it doesn’t look like you didn’t comb your hair. Usually in order to make a braid you have to comb first db? So it’s not obvious =)) HEHE So when you wake up early do you go home early or late-ish? I remember in high school, we wake up early, go home like 4 or 5 pm and have homeworks so it’s like late na when we’re “done for the day” and the whole cycle. College is more flexible, but still, not much free time =)))

    Is that a french braid to the side? =))) I know how to braid but am really confused with the braiding of a french braid. HAHA I love your outfit! Man, I turned 19 2 days ago and I wore a nice outfit (I can send you a picture if you like=)))) and mom is like “that is too short” and my dad is like “why dress up when I’m not around”. I know they are concerned, but ehhhh I barely dress up na nga eh HAHA. School kasi I’m conservative syempre. Dress code kasi =))) Anyway, your outfit is soooooo pretty. Fresh and it’s like you’re the sunshine =))) Uhm, just a question, do you like allow internships? I so wanna work with you =)))))
