Best Travel Adventure: What Urban Life Is Missing | Clozette

The world teaches us that we might think big but in truth, we are small creatures who are too blessed. Last April, I got a reality check and realized that nature has the answer. Feeling weak? The waves can calm you down. Feeling bored? Go up the hill and boost your adrenaline rush. Feeling boastful? Visit the tribes and be humbled. 




Welcome to Bohol, Philippines! Bohol showcases the beauty of environment and values of human beings. Me and my travel buddy went to this magical island to have a break from the busy and stressful urban life. On our first day, we toured the countryside and met up with my kind of chocolate, Chocolate Hills and the cuter than a teddy bear, Tarsier! We conquered more than 200 steps to reach the viewing deck where we said hi to more than 100 hills. We needed to relax after such a mini hike. Thanks to the cute Tarsiers who greeted us with their beautiful eyes. The manmade forest also made our tour movie-like. It’s something city peeps should be  envious of. 


Our lunch is extraordinary as we were on a floating resto traversing the clean Loboc river. The tribes welcomed us and let us experienced their culture. For our dinner, we rode a tricycle to the resto and the very kind driver waited for us so we can go back to our hotel without worrying. 






On the second day, the same tricycle driver drove us to Panglao Island. Say WOW! Crystal clear and fine white sand! I am too blessed to see such wonderful thing. The hot sun didn’t bothered me at all since I am in a paradise. 




Words cannot fully picture my adventure. You need to make your senses be awed with this place.

A few years back, white wasn't as popular as black. But nowadays, it seems that people have embraced white and its many stylish versions. Since the rise of the monochrome, basic, and laidback trends--white has been the go-to colour for any outfit. It's versatile and can make anyone look fresh in an instant.


To give you a lowdown on how to wear white according to your style, here are 5 no-fail pairings to choose from! 


--------------------------


Laidback Chic: White Polo + Denim Shorts

For those days you feel like taking a step back and letting the inner effortless chick in you take over, you can pair a classic long-sleeve white polo with denim shorts. It has the perfect balance of "chic" because of the polo's structure, and "laidback" because of the shorts' length and denim texture. A perfect off-duty look than can be dressed down with sandals or dressed up with heels. 

Boho: White Sleeveless Top + Maxi Skirt

Flowy white sleeveless tops are perfect for that boho, gypsy vibe. Tuck it in a simple maxi skirt to make it look put together for formal events, or tuck it out for an more relaxed boho flavour. You can also experiment with flowy crop tops or off-shoulder tops for a feminine touch. 



Preppy: White Polo + Overalls

Go loco with the preppy style by matching your overalls with a structured white polo. It automatically makes you look sophisticated yet still very classy and fun all at the same time. Add a monochrome twist to it by pairing your white top with black pieces so the white can pop.



Feminine: Crop Top + Skirt

Make your crop tops look classy by paring it with a chic, high-wasited A-line skirt. It will flatter your upper body shape without showing too much skin. The skirt also adds a touch of femininity to the look--just make sure it's not too short to keep the look sophisticated. Experiment with bejewelled necklaces and other skirts to infuse your personal style to it. 



Boyish: White Shirt + Ripped Boyfriend Jeans

Borrow from the men's section for a change and make it your own! Pair your crew neck, or v-neck shirt with a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans for an edgy, boyish style. For an added sporty touch you can wear your trusty white sneakers or go the femme route with a pair of fierce lace-up heels.

If you gather all our Clozetters from The Philippines, you'll have one big OOTD party and a day full of giggles and selfies.

So without further ado, here are the top 5 OOTDs that made it in our list this week!

AaliyahBenisano is one Clozetter to watch out for. This actress, model, and blogger has such an elegant style that a simple top and jeans combinations looks like a million bucks already! We love the touch of the Flare pants as well-- a great way to mix it up a bit for a chic off-duty look.  

DebbieFermin

We just can't get enough of Clozette Ambassador DebbieFermin's polished girl-next-door look. The powder blue and white colour match is perfect for the humid weather and the skirt is just flattering, simple, and perfect for the whole look.

Clozette Ambassador cameyflores has such a unique style that only she can pull it off. This look in particular rocked our socks off as it's girly, sporty, and edgy all at the same time. 



NelleCabanban

NelleCabanban is one Ambassador that sticks to feminine and sophisticated pieces. Her off-shoulder crop top, high waist culottes, and nude heels is such a dreamy combination. Plus, her makeup here is on point--as always.
