Touchdown Baguio City

Baguio city has always been on my bucket list. It's a dream actually ever since. The slopes, pines, and even the cold weather, I just like everything Baguio has to offer. And being a person whose closet is 80% winter clothes (I have no idea why), finally I can wear them!! Yay!

Earlier this May, I was really happy to be invited by Azalea Residences Baguio for a 3D/2N stay in the Summer Capital of the country. I'll share everything to you but for now, here's what I wore for a hey-Baguio-here-I-come kind of day. Bought this reversible coat at a thrift shop a couple of months ago and finally, I got the chance to wear it. I think it's the perfect place to put it on.

Hat from my dear friend Hana. No plans of wearing one actually until I saw it. Borrowed it and then forgot to return as they had to leave 3 hours earlier. But then she gave it to me already so thanks Hana!

Sweater (Php 10) and coat (Php 30) both from thrift shops. I fell in love with the coat as soon as I saw it. It's not really reversible but I love the inner cloth and since there's no visible stitches on the lining, I just cut the tag and voila! A reversible coat. I'll show how it looks like on my upcoming style posts so do check it out.

My stay at Baguio City would not be complete without
some a lot of photos. I almost filled my camera and phone's memory. I also took some videos which I'm still deciding whether to post or not (I really suck at videography and editing). And since I took a lot of pictures, I decided to create a separate post hence, this is the start of my Baguio City Journal. Anyways, here are quick snapshots of Baguio taken from my phone.

  1. Ahhh I love your outfit and ang ganda ng mga photos!

  2. Great thrift shop finds! What a bargain :)

  3. Wow, I am impressed with the photos, What camera are you using?
    I am very excited to go to Baguio as well. Like you I am a die-hard fan of winter clothes. Living in South-East Asia made it hard to pull through what we want to wear. Especially the layering. I love your style and I like it that you are very wise in choosing thrift finds.

  4. Hi Maria! For this one, we used Canon 1100d + 50mm lens. Hope you'll enjoy Baguio! :)

  5. Hi, may I know where thrift shop do you shop? I really love almost all of your thrifted clothes. :)

  6. Hi Lauree! I normally shop along Novaliches and Cubao in Manila :)

  7. Hi! your captures are nice! May I ask what camera are you using? Sorry for stalking your blog. I just love reading travel and style blogs :)
