In Style

I used to be interested in fashion and style but I knew how I could get obsessed with it and how I might lose myself. Ever since I became a mom, so many things have changed. I still try to look presentable every time but it’s not my priority anymore. I guess marriage and motherhood have given me a different kind of perspective and confidence.

I don’t want to be a hypocrite here but I still shop (a lot), I still care about fashion (not just much), I still care if the society will approve of what I wear or how I look (don’t we all?). I have stopped buying fashion magazines because I tend to want so many stuff inside. I want this…I want that…I’m buying this…I’m buying that…and so on. I know myself so I stopped checking out the magazines. Occasionally, I buy ‘OK’ magazine whenever I like the cover. Sadly though, that magazine by Summit Publishing is on its last issue this December.

I’m not ashamed to say that I have Nina Garcia’s books. And of course, there’s the Internet to keep me updated with the trends. There are so many fashion bloggers out there to follow. I have a lot of favorites. I am surprised as to how this trend in fashion blogging has started and continues to become popular. Believe it or not, I have a Chictopia account too. Yikes.

When I decided to go back to blogging, I started to publish my outfit posts. However, I really found it exhausting to keep track of what I wear, the brands, and the prices. I am no Jane Aldridge or Anna del Russo so why continue with that. I’m not saying I will stop posting the stuff I have or wear but I’m trying to be more conscious of what I post now. I’m not being a hypocrite here, please understand. I am not saying I’ve stopped shopping or caring about what I wear or the bags I carry. (Oh you can’t stop me!). I just don’t know if I can continue showing you those stuff as often. (Because really, who cares about what I wear, right?)

What I find more fun to do is post the things and trends I like. I can never be a fashion blogger but I can share what I like. They’re not necessarily the most stylish according to the world of Anna Wintour or whoever top Filipino designer out there, they’re just my type–mine. I plan on writing some style-related posts in the future, of the things I read. Some things I think we could all learn from.

I believe style is personal. You may still follow others but ultimately, you know what will work for you. That should be the attitude I guess when it comes to fashion.  To look effortlessly chic and not be a fashion victim.

So…what’s your style? How do you keep up with the trends? Do you even try to be fashionable?
