I agree that the combination of one sweltering Manila afternoon and a girl running around in 5 inch boots may seem like a completely preposterous idea but for whatever bizarre or scientific reason behind recent’s climatic change, Manila has been the exact opposite of sweltering — which in this case, gives me the freedom to exhale and nonchalantly sashay my way in full-fledged sushi legs. Although I can’t say the same for my sunburnt shoulders… Save me the prejudgment.

My newfound affinity for trousers couldn’t have come at a more convenient time. I’ve been meaning to find a new article of clothing to replace the amount of mini skirts I’ve already outgrown (both in a psychical and mental sense) in my wardrobe. There’s something about being close to turning 21 that has gotten me all fixated on change lately — even if it’s just the hemlines. Or the spontaneous dollar haircut that I took to twitter recently. How I’ll survive for summer is another pressing issue to be discussed but until then, I’m talking trousers.
