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.

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.
Recently shot with Pico de Loro for their advertisements that announced some of their summer promotions. This is the only poster I was able to get my hands on, the rest don’t seem to have been released yet. Took some behind-the-scenes shots using my camera since it was a pretty fun shoot anyway. They took more photos of my friends and I but they haven’t been released yet *sad face*.
The ever lovely Camille Juco.

That face I’m making is starting to annoy me now, I do it all the time!
My friends and I while posing for one of the layouts.
Tinkay and I. Still doing that awful face.
Me with my friends Camille Juco and Bianca Yuzon, who is totally rockin’ that indie chic.
We made smores!

My best friends and I have at least one annual beach trip, so we decided to celebrate my birthday (which happened at an unspecified date a few weeks ago) at the beach house. It. Was. Awesome.
We had an instant print camera with us!
My tough girls!
Oh dear God was I blonde.
We got these tattoos together!
Hello there, Amanda.
So apparently after an entire night of celebrations we find ourselves, yet again, on the roof.
I’m a little bit inebriated at this point.
Gia, all wrapped up.
The strangest pair of sunglasses I have come to own. I’ve seen a photo of Britney Spears wearing them as well though.

Any with my all-time favorite, I end this photo-story.
