Normcore

I’ve been seeing the word “normcore” a lot lately and I learned that it’s a hybrid between “normal” and “hardcore” aka a lazy dressing. Haha! I guess I know have a word when asked to define my style? Sort of.

I’ve always been a lazy dresser but I still make it a point to look put-together and neat – it’s a tough balance! When it comes to events, heels will always be my last resort since I find (most of) them uncomfortable.

Thrift shopper at heart

I found these vintage coordinates in a garage sale pile. I like wandering around thinking: who owned these before? That’s the interesting (and slightly scary) part of 2nd hand shopping – your piece always has a story.

Forever 21 gold cuff

I have two theories: the lady who used to own this must’ve 1. worked in corporate under sales (possibly a fun brand) or 2. she could’ve been a teacher or guidance councilor. I figured the length is too short for conservative schools. Haha!

Topshop black doctor bag

To downplay the corporate vibe of the coordinates, I paired it with my favorite mandals and black bag. There is really nothing comfier than a worn out pair of Birks!

in SM Southmall

I wore this to the grand opening of Forever 21 in the south! You can read my post here. Congratulations to the F21 Manila Team! You guys keep getting bigger and bigger every year – not to mention the amazing show you did during PhFW! :)

Blazer and sunnies c/o Michael Macalos

To heighten the “normcore” vibe, I tried on this blazer that Michael bought ONLINE. I find that amusing! I can never trust myself to buy a tailored piece online. Good job, Michael!

I’m not one to wear pastels but coordinates give this amazing feeling of comfort – as if you are wearing pyjamas. What do you think of this outfit? Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on Instagram via @yukitansengco!
