DOWNTIME

While some are sulking because summer days are over, I, on the other hand, is loving Manila’s grey and gloomy weather. Call me odd but I find it comfortingly peaceful when it rains.  Sometimes I wonder if I am an introvert because I actually enjoy having coffee, listening to music, shopping alone, writing blog posts, taking photos, etc–this type of weather gets me in the mood for these things.

Over the past two years, GAP has partnered with top style influencers all over the world to reinvent the online catalog experience. I was fortunate enough to represent the country for the second time and take part in this global campaign. I personally love GAP–the brand is a reflection of my personal style–simple, comfy and casual. GAP wanted us to shoot ourselves in everyday situations that represent our lifestyle. The things I love, where I hangout, my favourite spot in the city, etc. I have to say, it was a quite exciting for me to do a different take from my usual, standard outfit posts. Last weekend, I found myself in a quaint cafe with a coffee in hand while the rain kept pouring outside. My friend Lissa dropped by and we enjoyed catching up and taking photos. It was the perfect day–quiet, simple and peaceful. GAP kept me comfy the whole day, it was the perfect outfit for Manila’s rainy season.
