This is one of the outfits that when you see it again you want to wear it immediately. We photographed this outfit last week with my workmate somewhere near our office. Every once in a while, there comes a trend that is impossible to miss and not notice. If you were to ask me a couple of weeks ago about my thoughts on jogger pants, they would have been extremely different than they are today. It seemed much more like post-gym attire or something that lined Bieber's closet, but now I'm a full fan of jogger pants.
I can say that this is one of the comfiest outfit ever. Malambot lahat. haha. True to its name, jogger pants look exactly like the jogging pants you wear during P.E. days or workout. Notice how it does not have belt loops, but has a garter which you can use to tighten it around your waist.
Another notable thing of jogger pants is that the bottom part is also garterized to give it a firm hold near your feet. I love this new jogger from Forever pants, match it my new shirt from SM youth.
What I'm wearing: jogger pants (Forever 21), shirt (SM youth), sneakers (Cotton On), watch (Casio), backpack (Oxygen), jacket (H&M)

I'm back! After weeks of being so busy at work finally it's time for blogging. Anyway, this shoot I did with my niece happened last week after Sunday mass. I can say that I'm very lucky to have relatives that can do my quick ootd photo shoot. Today I will be creating a guide to the combinations you could create with your sandals and shorts, along with my new outfit post.
Let's start with basics. Sandals are perfect footwear for summer but a lot of males still shy away from using them within their daily outfits. Sandals have been long associated as being too girly but there are already constructed manly like leather as similar to men's shoes.
The first thing to consider on choosing your sandals are the color. Choose neutrals. Opt for classic leather pair in color such as black, white or brown, and they will match with every single other color you can think of.
Sandals are very versatile and can be worn with everything like what I have on here. I used my black clutch from SM department store paired with shorts from Uniqlo. This versatility comes from the timeless nature and smart aesthetic leather produces. It will instantly bring a casual outfit and it will never let the formal pieces down. Also, just want to share my new watch from Anne Klein.
Sandals are timeless pieces of footwear which will serve you well for years. I remember my dad's sandals from the 90s. Grabe! Sandals can be brought out each spring/summer season in order to sharpen up your holiday or casual outfits. I really love these pair from Zara. And yes, it looks very feminine! I don't care. I love it.
If you are a tall guy like me who is conscious about leg length and looking 'lanky' don't be afraid to opt for gladiator style which finishes just above the ankle . You can also use strappy sandals, this style will break up the long lines of the leg and shorten the gap between your shorts hem and footwear.
What I'm wearing: Sandals (Zara), Hat (Zara), Shirt (Zara), Belt (Uniqlo), Shorts (Uniqlo), Clutch (SM department store), Watch (Anne Klein)
I really hope it helps you on how to combine sandals and shorts. Till the next tips and style guide fo menswear. Thank you for viewing my post.
Thanks for viewing! Happy weekend!

Happy Sunday everyone! Honestly, How the ugliest and the most unflattering pants in the history have crawled back into fashion this 2015. I can call it Mom's pants trend. Why I ended up loving the mom pants trend? Yes! There was no typo there, you read it right. After getting this pants from Zara, I am now considering giving these jeans a try. I will go out with them. Here's what I wore last January 4 during my Auntie Sol's birthday celebration.
They're incredibly comfortable. The ugliness is the best thing about them, cause no matter what you choose, you know it's gonna look perfect. Also, I used my favorite black hat plus my Zara shirt.
What I'm wearing: Pants (Zara), Shirt (Zara), Hat (Metro), Mandals (Mendrez), Watch (Casio), Beaded bracelet (Baguio).
I also used my very comfy mandals from Mendrez. I think mandals are very perfect for oversize trousers.
For my accessories, I used my matchy brown watch from Casio and a gold beaded bracelet from my friend, Grace. Thanks Bax!
