I've studied in Manila for 3 years so I've experienced (and survived) my fair share of typhoons. I've blessedly lived through Ondoy unscathed and right before leaving Manila for good, there was a tropical storm (correct me if I'm wrong Heidi!) that seemed like a typhoon because it brought torrential rain and strong winds. Of course, there were other typhoons interspersed in the mix but the two mentioned above are those that stand out in my head. So aside from the city slick on my feet and the occasional wet flats and pants, I've been really fortunate to not have been directly victimized by Mother Nature.

Claire Danes, who won a Golden Globe in Homeland, also was a winner for me in this outfit. It's simple but striking which is her style, I've noticed.

I didn't know what to wear for the first washday of the year because I spent most of my money on either my shenanigans with friends, or paying for important stuff. I was not able to invest in a 2013 wardrobe so I just did what I usually do and made do. Though it is challenging to create multiple wearable, figure-flattering looks on a limited number of pieces, I feel great every time I am able to make something work--like my last outfit. Also, here lies the beauty of buying items in neutral colors. :))
Anyway, it was pretty chilly today so I went for gloomy/autumn colors. The thing about buying trendy colored jeans like the ones I'm wearing is that I can only wear them for a limited time (how awkward would it be to wear them come summer time?) so I am maximizing them by using them often (but not as often cause they are really noticeable). I decided to try something new though and instead of putting 2 colors together, I put 3 together. I felt like cake with different colored layers, hence the title. What do you think?

So, anything out of the ordinary happen to you today?
A notable thing that happened to me today was that I walked from school to my brother's school in Marfori Heights. That's about 2km I guess? HAHA
