Military Hues

 photo BeFunky_G612jpg_zps40fddd26.jpg My style has always been evolving but despite the wardrobe transition, my fondness for edgy pieces has always been the same. My diy and outfit posts can attest that degree of enthusiasm. Having an edgy style has also been a way for me to portray a tough persona. I always wanted to look tough and flash a cunning smile and without dressing up like one, I look more fragile and sensitive than I can actually be.

As much I wanted to look tough, I could never excuse myself for being vulnerable. These past few days hadn't been easier for me, the reason for my short-lived hiatus. I had to rest and take a break from my rut which also includes using my laptop because I wasn't feeling any better. I had fever that wouldn't subside for almost five days, not without medical help. I was confined in the hospital for another four days and I had to keep my heplock at home to complete my 1-week antibiotic treatment. It was only this morning that I had it finally removed. That is the longest time I had needle in my hand as much as I could remember. To those who asked how I'm feeling, I feel great now, recuperating.

 photo BeFunky_G4jpg_zps5eaf127f.jpg Other than studs and spikes, military-inspired items are also part of my edgy collection. I just love earthy tones; they aren't boring but are great neutralizers. It's so much fun to play with these colors as you can match them up with bright or dark hues. You can never go wrong by opting military green with leather or soft delicate pieces. Plus, you can get over your style rut as they are ideal for street wear.  photo BeFunky_G81jpg_zpscdae97cf.jpg  photo BeFunky_G12jpg_zpsc24419fb.jpg The best part about thrift shopping is when you find something that you won't easily find in stores and even if you find one, you won't still buy it because the price isn't reasonable. I bought this denim blazer for less than 150php and that already makes me lucky.  photo BeFunky_G10jpg_zps406df120.jpg
 photo BeFunky_G91jpg_zps6460543a.jpg  photo BeFunky_G51jpg_zps75672eef.jpg I don't usually succumb into fashion trends. For me, it's always wiser to spend money on basics and classics than those on trends that won't last. But of course, there is always an exception like this pair of hidden wedges. They're not only stylish but also comfortable, making wedges suitable for long walks. I have seen a lot of women on fashion blogs and streets sporting these sneakers. I just hope that these shoes won't be one of the things that I have to avoid a few months from now.  photo BeFunky_BeFunky_G7jpg_zps7188a331.jpg What I wore: Ann Taylor Loft shirt| Cotton On shorts| thrifted military jacket| S&H wedge sneakers| Photos (c) Adly Velasco
