All Hallows Eve

It's that time of year again. Used to be one of my favorite holidays, combining the irresistible attractions of dressing up in costume and gorging on candies my son collected during trick or treat. Yup, it used to be but not anymore. Luis started being disinterested in halloween costumes - may it be super heroes, scar-faced masks, zombies and grim reaper skeleton, etc. He's 11, I can't blame him. As we get older, we kinda sense and realize the deeper spiritual meaning that underlies the holiday. We remember our departed loved ones, honor their memories and share their stories.

Let me have a quick post before heading to the park to visit my lola and niece. Got no broomstick and spiderwebs on the background. It's just me 'guising' as the woman in the woods or the black lady in the woods this noon before the trick or treating, pumpkins and jack o' lanterns light up tonight. Yes, not much thought was placed here...haha! Forgive me, i'm rushing as usual. Here goes.... 

Look out in the woods tonight. The black lady is there and she's waiting for you..... :)

In the Military

When you feel like having an edgy look, then I advise you to try the military fashion trend. All you need is a military-style jacket, camouflage cap and an ankle-length boots, and you're ready to defend your island. Oh yes! It's not at all complex. No need to go full force in head-to-toe camo, unless you want people saluting a military superior in your person. You may report for duty in a minimalistic approach to military. Opt for either an army green, neutral color palette or the composite brown.

I love the soft fabric material of my military inspired coat. This one makes me move freely and therefore, doesn't create restraints at all unlike most military jackets, which are mostly fitted and structured. Its color too perfectly matches my wedged boots. Since I'm wearing shorts exposing my legs, wedges tend to give the aesthetic illusion of longer, more slender legs.

Never overdo. Never overthink. Just take it easy when you decide to go for the military look, so it wont signal that you’re supporting a conflict or opposition...haha. The consumption of these styles should have more to do with your desire to level up your style or follow the trend than a wish to express patriotism. A power look is the only message you should be sending when you wear your personal take on the military uniform.

A little intimidation wouldn't hurt... so, stand up, own it, inspire and run the world!
