What to do with a skirt that I only use inside the house, a so-so sweater and a men's tuxedo shirt? You layer them all up! It looks preppy, practical and has the warmth factor. Just make sure your tights are not footless and has the thickness of at least 100 (you can buy this at your local grocery or department store)

The yellow sweater actually has a pink sister, but today I decided to wear yellow. Pink on midnight blue might make the outfit dark. In my opinion (disclaimer: not necessarily an expert one) yellow makes a perfect contrast on anything that has a strong blue-base.

The shirt is really a men's tuxedo shirt complete with pleats, button-down collar and french cuffs (the cuffs can be folded back and fastened with links). This shirt was thrifted (as usual, hello!) from a girlfriend doing a garage sale (first dibs!) so my husband need not to worry.

I got the skirt from SM's Children's Wear Department a year ago. Obviously, the shoes is becoming my favorite. I bought it in Manila from a shop called Shoebox in Rockwell (and I also think they have a kiosk in Greenhills), their shoes are stylish, comfortable and most importantly- affordable.
