I’m not usually seen in rugged outdoor wear, like distressed shorts, studded muscle shirt, and skater shoes. I’m the girly, dainty type, but it doesn’t mean rugged, rocker and outdoor pieces are banned in my closet. Let me give that outdoor outfit a twist by making it a bit girly. 😀


This is what I wore during my flight to Boracay last week. Since I was off to the beach, I opted for light, summer-ready clothes. And just to be different from my usual choice, which would be a summer dress, I thought of wearing this…


Who said rugged and edgy pieces must be in dark or basic colors? Why not go for pastels and bright colors? 🙂


Studded muscle shirt in pink and distressed shorts in floral both sound ironic, but it’s fun to mix edgy details with feminine colors and prints!


Bright skater kicks anyone? It was one of my great finds in Hong Kong last January. I just remembered taking it out for a spin now. Eeeek!



Of course, the beach won’t be complete without sunnies! Haha! After sooo many years inside my closet, I’m back to using my Ray-Ban Lennon sunglasses again! Round, vintage-style frames are back! 😀


No dainty bags this time. I used my colorful mosaic backpack from Outdoor Products as my hand carry.


I was recently introduced to Outdoor Products. Their backpacks have edgy, fun and colorful designs. I used it as my hand carry since it’s made of very lightweight material. It’s made of Cordura fabric, a brand name for a collection of fabrics that are used in a wide array of products like luggage, backpacks, boots, military wear, and performance apparel. Cordura is best known for its durability and resistance to abrasions, tears, and cuffs. It also has a seamlock feature, which ensures durable shoulder strap with its double stitch.



Don’t forget to look for this Cordura fabric tag!


Do you know that Outdoor Products are known in South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, and US? You can even see them being used in Korean shows. 😉


To those who are looking for backpacks or to those who will be back to school this coming June, go crazy over the variety of colors and designs of their bags- choose from metallics, to fun brights, to unique prints, and to special collaborations like Hello Kitty! 😀
