Good Dress Up Denim on Denim + Tiger Pad Guesting. ELENABLOG

Hiiii! :)

I must say, being a working girl really ate up my time and made me on a blogging hiatus for months! Actually not just work but I also chose to stay away from the computer on weekends to spend it with my family and friends. But now, I finally squeezed in some time to document outfits and write this blog post. Honestly, even though I dress up nicely at work (yes, we're required to dress up like a walking mannequin) I can't take pictures of my outfits everyday because I'm busy. hehe I just post outfits on my instagram account: @nicooolesantos.

 Anywaaaay I'm really excited to share this one to you because I finally have decent pictures and stories to tell. A lot of things happened to me these past few months. Awesome things actually. As much as I want to jot down everything here, time won't allow me to stay up too late because I have to wake up early tomorrow and I'm afraid I might bore you. haha! Still, I'm obliging myself to do so because I owe you one interesting post for being M.I.A. for months. ;)

I'm really thankful for all the things that happened and is happening to me right now. Really. First, even though I'm busy at work, I love what I'm doing and I just got regularized YAY! Second, I'm really enjoying spending time with my family and friends these past few days. I feel like a Superwoman whenever I manage to get things done at work and be good in being a sister, daughter and a friend to the people around me. Lastly, besides being a good sister, daughter and friend, I'm really happy being a girlfriend to the most awesome guy ever! (Yiiieee..Hi love if ever you're reading this. haha ew cheeseball ).

On the other note, I did something for the first time recently! I was invited to be a guest in Tiger Pad, a TV Production in the University of Santo Tomas to be interviewed live. It was shown in every establishment in the university. I was really excited because I'll be going back to my alma mater and I'll be doing this interview! Let me share you what I wore and what happened during that day! :)

Denim pants, Charm Bracelet, Necklace, Stilettos, Bag and Belt, FOREVER 21.

Who says denim is boring? I say otherwise! Denim is chic. I've decided to wear this denim on denim outfit, something casual yet chic for the interview. It's a school thing so dressing up comfortably is a must and I've planned lots of things to do that day. The secret to denim on denim dressing is wearing denim in different shades and wearing minimal accessories. Denim is heavy itself so wearing lots of accessories can make your look overdone. In this outfit, I chose to pair whites and a bit of gold to my denim duo. :)

 Feels so good to be back! I've missed UST! Quite nostalgic actually. :)

 As soon as I got there, the people of Tiger Pad oriented me with the flow of the show and the questions to be asked so I could make up my thoughts already because it's a live interview.

 Commercial breaks! Look at our studio! Small yet perfect for a campus TV production! Great job Prime Productions!:)

 I was asked about tips and how to's on Thrift shopping. Being thrifty was their main topic that day. Different ways to be thrifty in food and fashion. I find it a good topic for college students. 

 The Tiger Pad Team! Thank you for having me for your first Live TV Show, Prime Productions! I really had a great time! :)

So there, I hope I was able to pay up for my months of absence with this post! haha! Expect me to post regularly again soon!:)

Good Dress Up In The Pink. ELENABLOG

 Dress, Heels, Bracelet, FOREVER 21 | Necklace, SM Accessories | Watch, CASIO

I chose to wear pink for my Bloggers United 7 outfit! I think you've noticed that most of the bloggers that day are wearing pink or anything with a touch of pink! Of course we are! We're celebrating Bloggers United with Sunsilk this time! That's why I chose to wear this Sunsilk Pink dress! I came from work that day before going to Bloggers United that's why I chose to wear something that's presentable for work and for my next events!  Honestly, pink is my favorite color but I don't have that much pink inside my closet! Got this dress from Forever 21! It's so breezy and flattering! Perfect for this hot hot weather! I wanna buy it in every color!:)

Anyway, how was your #BU7xSunsilk experience? Again, I was so happy to meet everyone! Bloggers United has been the most interactive event I've ever been to! It's where bloggers and readers communicate to each other face to face! Admit it, it's nice to see a face to that someone you've always admired on the internet right? Plus, there were lots of games, prizes, booths and more items to shop! Everyone's dressed up so nice with their favorite bloggers as their style inspiration! Of course, I wanna see your #ootd s!

Thanks to my laaav Cher Lui Pio for taking my outfit photos!:)

Good Dress Up Good Morning, Sunshine!. ELENABLOG

Knit Cover Up, Tank top, Shorts, Boots, Earrings, FOREVER 21 | Watch, CASIO 

Even though the weather's so humid, I don't mind. It's the season to wear my shorts, skirts, sleeveless clothes, short dresses and swimsuits! You gotta love Mr. Sun cause he'll be gone in a few months. Actually it started raining already haha! On lazy days, I always opt to wear high-waisted shorts (to make my legs look longer 'cause I'm just 5"2 hihi), a tank top and a cover up! This look is very versatile! Perfect for a hot and cold weather. All of us have our looks for casual or lazy dress up days, so that's mine. Now, I wanna know yours! Tweet or comment below your lazy dress up outfits!:)

Don't forget to join my BLOGGERS UNITED blog giveaway!

Good Dress Up Take Me Back to The 70's!. ELENABLOG

Floral Overalls, FOREVER 21 | Necklace, FOREVER 21 | Platform Heels, WADE | Watch, CASIO | Sunnies, TOPS

Brights hues, playful patterns, loose silhouettes, and platform shoes is what 70s fashion is all about. Remember those hot pants, bell-bottomed trousers and hippie fashion? Yep, welcome to 70s fashion!

This floral overalls reminds me of 70s fashion with it's floral print and loose silhouette. I chose to wear this pair of black platforms to compliment the look. This vintage looking sunnies totally summed up the whole 70s feel.

Fashion trends just repeat from time to time. You don't have to follow trends everyday. Whenever I feel like dressing up like this or like that, I do. Styling does the trick. I may be channeling 70s fashion here but I tweaked it a bit to look modern. Make an outfit look more interesting by letting your own style show.

Anyway, how's your week so far? It's Friday already!! The week went by so fast and I love it. I know every student and people in the working class loves Friday!

Wishing everyone a great weekend!:)

Good Dress Up Thigh High. ELENABLOG


The thigh high slit made its comeback during the late half of 2013. I've posted an outfit last year wearing a thigh high slit skirt as well but I'm posting one again now. I can't get enough of this trend! I love how it's conservative yet sexy. Conservative because of the skirt length and sexy because of, well the slit showing your smooth stems! You know what they say, if you got it, flaunt it! I may not have the skinniest of legs but I'm confident that it's proportion to my body and it's scar-less. When I was a kid, my grandma hates it when I fall and marks a scab on my knee. I make sure not to touch it that much so it won't leave a scar. Taking care of your legs is a must! Living in a tropical country, you just don't want to wear pants all the time right?:))

I wanted to give this look a twist by not looking so feminine. So I matched this skirt with my sporty pullover and I was surprised that it worked! It's sexy yet sporty! Ha! ;) 

So that's my take on the sexy skirt. Your turn! How would you style a thigh high slit skirt? Post a look and tweet me/ comment your links below!:)
