This is the outfit I prepared for Close Up Summer Solstice! Going to a 12-hour music festival, I made sure to try and be as “hipster” as I can get myself to look while still looking stylish and remaining comfortable.
Nothing says hipster like aztec print, triangles, and feathers! I did plan to try and wear this indian headdress at the festival but it soon proved to be too hot to wear at the already too hot festival.

Even my sunglasses have aztec print! Sunglasses from ASOS.
One of my favorite things about this outfit is that it allows you to see my tattoos!
What I’m wearing: tank top, army boots - Topman; leather bracelet, skinny jeans - Folded and Hung; leather satchel - Coach; watch, aztec-print sunglasses, feather necklace - ASOS; tribal bracelets - thrifted; indian headdress - borrowed.
I’m so happy that I went to Close Up Summer Solstice! Haven’t had such a feel-good night of debauchery with my friends in so long, plus I got to listen to some of my favorite artists perform live. I believe my arm is still in shock due to all the fist-pumping!
Thanks to Close Up and Bridges PR for making it happen, and thanks to Yenee for taking my outfit shots!
The biggest music festival of the season is tomorrow! Close Up Summer Solstice is happening tomorrow at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, I can’t wait to party to the beat of my favorite artists playing non-stop for 12 hours! I’ve been getting my outfit ready for a couple of days now, and here’s one that I would recommend if you’re kind of clueless about what one wears to music festivals.
The festival is outdoors so I would highly discourage anyone from wearing anything with fur, leather or polyester in the blend. I suggest to dress minimally, keep the essentials while playing it up with accessories to ensure comfort while not giving up style. A hat wouldn’t be such a bad idea if you plan to go early, since the sun’s been blazin’ these last few days.
Always remember to keep it simple and not to over accessorise! It’s a party anyway, you shouldn’t be too conscious of the time so only wear a watch if you have to! Accessories by Topman and Folded and Hung.
Despite the heat, I would have to go with sturdy, close-toed shoes. These Oxblood Desert Boots from Boxfresh would be the perfect example of what shoes one should wear, cause they’re comfortable and stylish, yet still light weight and protective of your feet, since who knows what might be on the concert ground floor, not to mention all the people stepping on each others’ feet due to the place probably being packed with partygoers.

If you’re planning on bringing more than cash and a cellphone, I suggest going to a small sling or messenger bag. Make sure it’s large enough to hold a few essential things like a phone, wallet, digital camera, sunblock, and whatever else you’ll need for a music festival. Keeping your bag to a minimum size helps a lot since you have the liberty to move and dance around without having to worry about a huge hulking thing on your back or shoulders. Sling bag by Louis Vuitton.
Looking at photos from other festivals such as Coachella, I realised that my outfit wouldn’t be complete without feathers! I put on my necklace and made sure there were some feathers in my hat. Frames by Ray-Ban, aztec print tank top and feather necklace from ASOS.
What I’m wearing: sling bag - Louis Vuitton; desert boots - Boxfresh; spiked metal bangles, tapered shorts, aztec print socks - Topman; aztec print tank top, feather necklace - ASOS; leather wristband, feathered cap - Folded and Hung; frames - Ray-Ban.
See you all at Close Up Summer Solstice!
Thanks to Yenee for taking these brilliant photos of me.
A European-street style themed look I put together to match my friend’s brand spankin’ new Vespa!
Classic piece of Italian transportive genius, right here in the Philippines!
I’m going for a “French college student coming back home from a long day of art class” look.

They’re quite easy to ride once you get the hang of ‘em!
I’m trying to be one with the machine.
Seat’s still comfortable in a myriad of positions!
Just hipster enough not to annoy anyone.
Although the denim jacket was a little bit warm, the outfit could be utilised in many a situation. Although a lot of styling kept the Vespa in mind, I also tried to keep with my references and actually wear something that I could (and did) wear out afterwards.
Thanks to Yenee for taking these awesome photos!
