Lazy Dressing 100

It all started yesterday when my sundo was already outside but I still couldn’t figure out what to wear. I guess it’s safe to say that time pressure breeds creativity and resourcefulness – I instantly came up with an outfit!

Got a lot of button down shirts laying around your room? Here’s how you can transform your shirt into a skirt! :)

Lazy Sunday

For the first time, I tried out Kanto and Kool Kids in Kapitolyo to see what the fuss was about. Two thumbs up! I super love the food in Kanto – so yummy and very affordable. As for the Kool Kids ice cream, you should try it when you want to see something new. Haha!

Zara grey shirt | Thrifted Holiday-themed buttondown | Birks

To get this look, simply button up the shirt until where it meets the waist then knot the sleeves part down the middle. Make sure you tuck the collar part inside and the sleeves under the knot for a neat finish! Try it out and let me know what you think! :)

You can experiment with different buttondown textiles like denim and cotton and try different sizes so your “skirt” length will vary. Since the polo is heavy on the prints, I partnered it with a simple gray cotton shirt.

If you tuck the collar part, it’ll look very neat at the back as if it’s an actual skirt. We snapped these photos in an alley in the Kapitolyo area. Thank you, Marcus!

Keeping this look comfy with a pair of Birks and my new favorite carry all – this nude tote from Forever 21! It fits anything and everything. I got mine in the newly revamped flagship in Megamall – follow @f21philippines on Instgram for updates! :)

If you can’t buy it (or if you simply don’t have time to look for an outfit), DIY it. Let me know what you think! This and more of my DIY quirks on my Instagram via @yukitansengco. 

Happy holiday,

Yuki
