This mashup of pictures pretty much sums up my mood board as of late...

With having only 2 seasons here in the Philippines, them being Rainy and Dry (AKA summer), I decided to compile an assemblage of spreads and runway pictures that depict the kind of mood I'm in for summer. Though I wouldn't wear every single piece found in these pictures, I still find that each and every item describes the ideal summer look perfectly. I love the tiered shoulder long sleeve lace crop top, the cream rosette hot shorts, the silver sequins jacket, the suede sleeveless top and the butterfly petal shorts, the python shorts, and of course, the white flower lace shorts.
Most of the outfits I've been wearing lately have been really casual, much like the On the Streets editorial (minus the mini booty shorts) and the outfit from the Friend of Mine RAFW show, where chic and comfort are the obvious priorities. Although dresses and skirts play integral roles in girls' wardrobes (most especially for summer), I feel like sometimes the simplicity of shorts and a flowy top are the only essentials needed in creating the perfect casual look for summer.
