As much as I love blazers, cardigans, coats or anything with full sleeves I more often than not end up wearing vests here in Manila. It's just more practical due to the hot weather which can be at times unbearable and annoying. But believe me I'd take sunshine over tsunamis anytime. Since moving to Manila a couple of years ago I have managed to adjust my wardrobe to the climate conditions here. Gone were the crazy 4-5 piece garment layering when I was still living in the Bay Area in Northern California. Frankly, I can barely stand wearing more than 2 garments at the same time now unless I'm on vacay somewhere cold.
Don't get me wrong. I do miss layering and wearing wool, leather and fur! This is why I love traveling because I get to rock my automne-hiver outfits! A couple of months to go til my upcoming Hong Kong trip. Can't wait to finally wear my Rick Owens leather jacket again!
Thanks Cholo for all the fierce photos!!!
