pale colors

when in comes to fashion, comfort may not be the first thing on my list. I still wear my heels despite all the blisters I've obtained and I still squeeze into my Herve Leger even if I need to go on a detox beforehand. But then, I'm still human. Despite all the outfits you've seen in my blog, I have those "off" days where I wear my jeggings, tshirt, and havaianas. When I'm in need of comfort and poise, I choose nice breathable fabrics with loose/skimming cuts. Cotton Ink is one of those brands that fits into the description. Everything from their collection is either made of cotton or smooth viscose (perfect for indonesia's blaze).

combined sky blue and pink champagne for a spring-y look.. neutralized everything with brown accessories

these aldo wedges are one of my comfiest shoes. I turn to these wedges when I need height but minus the pain. They're also my go-to shoes when it's raining.

cotton ink top and drawstring shorts, customized leather bracelet, aldo wedges


speaking of comfort, i thought I'd clarify some things. Many people get the wrong impression that fashion bloggers run around in heels all day long 24/7. WE DONT :) I remember Susie Bubble had this post where she would take a pair of flats for those subway rides and she changes into heels at the destination. Well I don't know about other bloggers, but I wear flats at the office, and change into heels when I go out or only when I'm meeting someone. That's pretty much my way of surviving tall heels on a daily basis.

We all love to feel comfortable from time to time despite being fashionistas. I love the color combination of your outfit and you look so chic wearing sandals and socks.
I barely wear any heels, but seeing so many fashion bloggers on heels, I can't help wondering if they wear them all day.
Good thing you clarified this for us.

Galia said...

veda said...

i do the same thing too...
i even wear flipflop first then change it to the heels or wedges, hehe...

brokefashionjunkie said...

It occured to me just now that you live in Indonesia. I'm guessing the weather is much like the Philippines, since you're below it. Anyways I can't believe you were able to wear layers and stuff on some of your outfits. It would have definitely been very hot. I know I won't be wearing layers when I visit the Philippines.

Sweet said...

the cotton just feels so comfortable and with those cotton pieces you still look gorgeous my dear...i agree with bloggers and heels...seriously I do not have a car in Bangkok so I always bring a big bag with me and inside is my favorite heels...I wear my flats if I ride the bus and change when I get into my destination but my everyday shoes is my trusted flats at work...I cannot wear heels at school and I also have to take it off when I am in the classroom because of their thai tradition...
