My first day out in the UK was in Manchester. For some reason, I’ve never really been in Manchester to see sights around the city. It has always been shopping. Last 2013, Manc was my last stop, and all I did was shop for pasalubong. This year, it’s to buy clothes for me to wear for the next 4 weeks. Well, some of it. So forgive me, if, for the second time, I won’t be writing about Manchester.
Manc, I love you but I needed clothes, okay? Someday, I’ll actually see your beauty. Don’t give up on me. 😅
My jet lagged self woke up to early morning rain. As I was still adjusting with weather (and you can’t really count on England’s sun), I decided to wear layers. But a very light one. Something that won’t fry me up if the day turns out to be a sunny one nor would it freeze me if it continues to rain. Luckily, it worked out really well, since it rained all day and became sunny by evening. I KNOW! Sun in the evening. My favorite thing about summer nights in the UK is that their days are longer. The latest I saw the sun set was at 9! Crazy, but crazy beautiful.
I ran around Manchester in my muted pantone colors of the year, Serenity and Rose Quartz. This was more of a dusty pink and blue grey, which I was obsessed about. You’ll see me wearing these colors all throughout my journey because yes, I hoarded a whole lot of ‘em.
Some say, sweats are not fashionable, and I agree. 😜 It’s definitely lazy but some days, you just want to be as comfortable as you can be. But, it doesn’t necessarily mean compromising style. We all have our own unique styles and I believe your comfort over the society’s definition should come first.
Would you dare say sweats are fashionable? How would you style it up? Let me know in the comments below!
