Modern Safari

Oh to be young and freeeeeeee. I’m making the most out of my twenties by dressing like this every once in a while. Lord knows that when I grow older, I probably wouldn’t be able to pull this off anymore. Cue song: Forever Young, I wanna be…. forever young haha! Funny how the world works. When we were younger, we all wanted to dress older and fast-forward to when we’re legal. Now that we’re older, we want to go back to yester-year. So this I say to you tweens out there, listen to Ate Camille–enjoy your youth. (Akala mo naman napakatanda ko na.) Dress your age and have fun with it!

Putting this outfit together was a piece of cake. Not that I’m bragging or anything, I was just lucky all these items arrived at my doorstep at the same time and they all just happen to go together. Thank you for styling me, Lady Luck! :)

Here’s a little styling tip: if you’re unsure whether your shoes match your outfit or not, strengthen it by accessorizing your look using the same color as your shoes. Even just the tiniest piece of accessory can help. Take my outfit for example. I always say, in choosing which bag or shoes to use, look at your outfit’s colors and pick a color from there. In my case, there’s no yellow/mustard on my top or skirt so I got a necklace with yellow on it. It’s a tiny tiny detail but if you look at my outfit as a whole, it contributes a lot. Plus, yellow/mustard almost always look great with tan/brown, magenta, purple, and blue denim–all of which are present here.

If you have difficulty choosing which arm candies to combine, why not go for a set instead? Tomato has a lot of bracelet sets available at both their branches and online for only P400. They have sets with watches too priced at P800. Once you get the hang of mixing and matching them, you can use the bracelets and watches individually and make your own arm party! These are great Christmas gifts as well! If you order online, Tomato.ph even offers free gift-wrapping services plus free delivery nationwide. (Tomato.ph also delivers internationally.)

A lot of you always ask me how I can last a day in heels. The answer is, I don’t! Like the ordinary girl that I truly am, of course I bring flats with me for back-up! These wedges are HIGH! I need my flats to finish my errands on time.

Tada! Purple slippers this time! I told you I love androgynous shoes, slippers included.

    Hi ate Camille! You are soooo intelligent. I never thought you can actually incorporate that much color and print on outfits until I came across your blog! Hahaha you are so galing :))). Since I know that you have many many many shoes, may I know what brand of pumps hurts the least (hahaha and how long can you stand/walk with them)? I need it for my JS Prom next year. I don’t want to just sit down while my other batch mates are having fun because my feet are already killing me. Thanks!

      Well it depends. Call It Spring and Aldo usually don’t hurt for me but for others they do. I think you really have to test them out first :) Thanks Jam!

    Love love love! Even with the bright gorgeous yellow wedges, or the comfy purple flat. I love how you style and mix all the colours to be something pretty like this. If i were you, i don’t think i would combine the texture skirt with your top, or yellow wedges or that purple bag. But you are so creative and brave! You can make it all beautiful! You’re one of my inspiration, Camille!

    Nice shoes! I love the combination of yellow and purple HEHE Like Queso de Bola and Ube in ice cream HAHA (Ayan nanaman, food!) HAHA Colors remind me of food all the time. I’m pretty sure that I’m not hungry right now at this unusual time HAHA =))) Pretty btw and hmmm, how many inches are your heels? HAHA When I’m buying shoes, I never really go beyond 6 (making sure there’s 2 inches in front and not too steep) =)))

    I don’t really want to say this but, “hulog ka talaga ng langit Ate Camille!” Besides the fact that pareho tayong confused if we’re going to style ourselves the opposite way of our age or to feel young and wild, you posted a post with “FLATS!!!” I’ve been really wishing for a blogger to style a look using loafers kasi these days loafers’ prices really went DOWN like to the core of the earth (lol) that I can afford one already!!! So excited to buy (obviously)!!!! But I’m afraid di ko rin sya masuot kasi I can’t think of ways how to pair it with both skirts and pants. Hope you’d make more post about flats especially loafers this month so I can take notes and finally choose my new bestie rockin’ loafers! You’re always a help to me, thank you so much! G.R.R.R.R!

    Ang lakas maka-liit ng paa ng slippers mo! lavet! So ganda talaga your feet! I’ve seen those wedges on other bloggers, pero sayo talaga, super ganda tignan! PERFECT ang fit! Sa iba kasi medyo mukhang maluwag! Blessed talaga your feet! :D Nagmumukhang designer shoes pag ikaw nagsusuot!

    At dahil din sa post na to, I will rush to the nearest tomato store to avail their sets of bracelets! Effective Marketing!

    Di parin ako maka-get over sa ganda ng feet mo! I swear talaga perfect ang fit ng lahat ng shoes sayo!

    Calling the attention of Kirkwood, Louboutin, Blahnik, Alaia, Steiger, Olympia, Zanotti, Rossi, Choo, Vivier, Hardy, Marant et al… please have Camille Co as your brand ambassador! Girl, gora ka na kahit from thigh to toe lang ang kita sa ads mo! chos!

    You look so young, Ms. Camille! Awww sana ako din pero I look older daw huhu height plus well, face T.T (nakakastress naman kasi sa school ///carpals haha) anyway, Ms Camille, doesn’t it feel awkward when you’re too tall and you’re with your friends who happened to be smaller than you? I always get that kasi huhuhu that’s why I always try to lessen wearing sky high heels even if I really want too T.T any suggestions? (aside from making mynfriendsbwear high heels din haha)
