My Personal Style Evolution

We all have those photos that we uploaded without thinking twice! Lol! πŸ˜‚ Really, I am not that super interested on Instagram before, my feed isn’t curated and the photos I post are “Just Photos”.

Today, I have decided to give my Instagram a look and I noticed how my Personal Style Evolved! And yes! It’s for the better! Thank God!

This photo was taken when I was a baby. Here, I was sitting at the Principal’s Chair! Would make babies wear these pieces again! Look how cute! πŸ˜‚


These photos were taken from 2013, the year when I started teaching in the public school.

In the first pic, I am wearing a Penshoppe top, pants and shoes. Those days when I would only buy from Bench and Penshoppe! πŸ˜‚

I still don’t know how to style clothes those days that’s why if you would notice, I would only wear pieces, but no styling at all. πŸ˜‚ I will never create this look again! πŸ˜‚

In the second and third pic, I am wearing a polo shirt from Men’s Club at SM. These are the times that I would only wear Polo Shirts and a pants and I’m already happy! Also, I can repeat this look if I’m going to the grocery or something. πŸ˜‚


These photos were taken last 2014 when I would fix my hair so strong using the Grunge Up Wax from Bench! πŸ˜‚I would never use it again!

In the first pic, I am wearing something that I ordered from Zalora for the top and a gray pants from SM Department Store. For the shoes, I was wearing Penshoppe. πŸ˜‚Also, I still don’t know how to edit photos during those days so Retrica is life! πŸ˜‚

The top in the second pic was from Men’s Club at SM Department store. The pants are from Paddock’s which can also be found and bought there at a very low price! The boots were from Rusty Lopez. πŸ™„

For the third photo, I was wearing a Main Street Longsleeves, and Paddocks for the pants, all can be found at the SM Department Store. The shoes though were something I ordered from Zalora! πŸ˜‚

I can repeat these looks but I will never repeat my hairstyle here! I looked very much put together because of the stiff hair! πŸ˜‚


I think 2015 made me realize that somehow, I should step up my Fashion Game. Although completely challenging I faced it and here are the results! πŸ’‹

For the first photo, I am wearing an Oxygen Tee, a pair of pants from Paddocks and a pair of shoes that I ordered through a brochure! I would definitely still get this look for groceries or going to the mall, or even anywhere but I will no longer cut my hair this way or apply Bench Grunge up for that matter. πŸ˜‚

This floral top that I was wearing in this picture is my favorite. I’ve gotten the top from SM Dept Store’s Coco Republic, the pants from Penshoppe and shoes are from Milanos. πŸ˜‚

In the next photos, I was wearing a Giordano Top, an Oxygen Slim Pants, and a Pedro Calf Skin boots! πŸ˜‚

For the next picture, I was wearing a long tee as a top, and a Folded and Hung pants. The shoes were from Fila! πŸ˜‚

I can definitely repeat all these looks but no to the hairstyle! Also, this year, I actually dyed my hair but it isn’t worth it because my hair is always short and the hair color can’t be noticed at all. πŸ˜‚


I once fell in love with tees! ❀️

For the first picture, I was wearing a Giordano plain Tee and a bag from Folded and Hung. My pants though were from again, Paddocks. πŸ˜‚

For the second picture, I was wearing a Penshoppe shirt and a Folded and Hung pants. Shoes are from Fila. πŸ˜‚


For these photos taken in the year 2017, I think my style has evolved drastically. I would experiment more, and even my pose changed for the better! Lol! πŸ˜‚

For the first picture, which is very much memorable for me for this is the picture that caught the attention of Uniqlo USA’s Instagram account! I felt so kilig that day! πŸ˜‚ So here, I am wearing Uniqlo Mickey Mouse Tee, my ever fave Folded and Hung White Skinny Pants, and my trusty Milanos loafers. ❀️

Second look was when the faculty went to Sinagtala for our Gender and Development Training. I opted for a floral longsleeves I’ve gotten from the Men’s Section of SM Department Store, the pants is from Folded and Hung and the shoes is a pair of mules from Milanos. πŸ™ŒπŸ»My sunnies are from Fly Shades! ❀️

Third look, which is my second look that day when we went to Sinagtala is again a floral ensemble. Here, I am wearing a button down shirt that I bought from a local store and obviously, the same pants and shoes. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‚

For the fourth picture, I am wearing a top from Penshoppe, my pair of blue Paddocks pants and my Pedro boots. ❀️The sunnies again are from Fly Shades. πŸ˜‚

For the next look, I created this look for a debut party of my former student turned friend with whom I share the same birthdate, Angelica BaraΓ±a. I love this look because it gave me the feel that I am in control of my life. Lol. πŸ˜‚Also, it made me look matured and responsible. All of these pieces were from a local store. The mules though were from a Milanos. πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

2018- My Best Year!

For this year, I have been more fashionable because I do felt like I really have to exert effort to my style because it was the year that I have been invited to the launch of Uniqlo Philippines Spring/Summer 2018 Collection. Also, it was the year that I did a content for them that’s why it is my best year! Yey! πŸ˜‚

For this first look which I wore at the Uniqlo event, I gave a nod to them by wearing their products. The inner top is the Mickey Mouse Tee from 2017 which I layered with my SM Code Blue Denim Button Down, pants is a ripped jeans from Uniqlo and the shoes is my Pedro Boots. πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

After being able to attend this event, I made it clear to myself that somehow, I should be more playful and experimental to my style.

For this second pic, I was wearing an oversized Tee from Cotton On, the pair of wide legged pants is from SM Youth and my shoes again is from Milanos. πŸ˜‚I wore this look for the Annual Retreat of Grade Ten students. ❀️ Also, this look made people turn their heads. πŸ˜‚

For these next look which I wore as an OOTD for a Friday, I opted for a Cotton On Blue Button Down which has a Coconut Tree Embroidery on the pocket suggesting Summer! But since I am wearing this as a teacher in school, I went back once again with my white Folded and Hung Pants and my Milanos Shoes. ❀️

These next looks which I wore when me and my friends went to Casa San Miguel and in Baguio respectively. Who doesn’t love tees? πŸ’†πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ If I am buying tees, I would always choose Cotton On because they are very affordable! Normally, you can get two tees for PHP 1200! Also, their tees are very much comfortable for it is soft and feels right to the skin! ❀️Cotton On indeed! πŸ˜‚

My pants for these looks are from Uniqlo and SM Youth respectively. Also, slides are from Milanos and a no brand I bought from Landmark. ❀️

Also, lastly, this year, I would like to go in more relaxed outfits by wearing whites!

For this look that I wore when I did a campaign for Uniqlo, I have chosen a white Polka Dots Short Sleeved button down, which I layered with a Uniqlo Jacket and a Uniqlo EZY ankle pants. The mules again is from Milanos! ❀️

This another AdrielxWhites look is also my favorite, because it looks stylish and fashion yet look so relaxed and laid back.

For this look:

Top: Giordano Button Down

Pants: SM Youth wide leg pants

Slides: Milanos

Also, I am currently in love with oversized short sleeves button downs like this one. ❀️

In these photos, I am wearing the ff:

Sunnies: Sunnies Studios Kaia

Buttondown: Marks and Spencer

Pants: Factorie

Shoes: Bought from Landmark

Yayyy! I’m so happy with how my style turned out to be! I’m actually proud of it! Although in the process, our choices of clothes would seem right but looking back, some outfits might be terrible! But I am happy that my style journey is actually for the better! Hoping to look better this 2019 and be more experimental! ❀️ #stylebyadriel
