To define a tomboy requires searching far beyond the simple notion of a girl wearing boy’s clothing. Tomboy’s have influenced the expanses of popular culture in fashion, film, music, literature and beyond. And although the tomboy is often identified by clothing, what makes her wholly so is an inherent sense of confidence, rebelliousness and adventure.
Goshy! I just love the quote above. It’s so me! And yep it’s all about what I am posting today.
I have been planning to wear this plaid top (stolen from my sister’s closet) for a long time but the weather in Metro Manila was not too good on me. It’s super duper summer already here in PH and wearing something like this top, with very warm fabrics surely can cause me heat stroke. Haha.
Good thing I planned a short getaway in Baguio, the only place in the Philippines where people are lucky enough not to experience the truest summer whenever hot season comes as it coldest part of the country. It’s almost my second home. At least once or twice in a year, I usually arrange a trip to this beautiful place to relieve stress at the same relax and go shopping! I love this place so much because I could go shopping and buy loads of clothes, shoes or bags without spending too much. As mentioned in my previous post, Baguio City is known for their ‘wagwag’ or night market and they’ve got the cheapest fashion finds ever.
Going back to the plaid top I wore in Baguio, I paired it with the vintage trousers I recently bought from one of my thrift shopping escapades with sister, which are becoming my favourite pants already. I love prints over prints so as usual I’m channeling a prints-on-prints combo again in these photos. Lately, my hair’s beginning to look horrible so I have decided to brush it up and covered it with a hat which I guess made up the tomboy look.
I was also wearing a cropped top inside just in case the weather gets hot, which I was the one who personally chopped it off – obvious with its malformed edges. -_-
Special thanks to Marco, my dear friend for letting me use his lens. ❤
