Feeling like a school girl more and more now that I’m nearing my quarter life (although hopefully the crisis part has come and gone.) No biggie though, regression becomes me so I’ll be riding the trend for as long as it’s acceptable. Which may be a while given that I supposedly look really young and can get away with it.

Wore this to attend the launch of Timber Creek here in the Philippines which is a brand exclusively for men by the Wrangler group that offers a welcome alternative to denim. Not that I mind jeans, it’s just nice to see men in khakis and non-indigos once in a while.

It was an intimate event with some blogger friends where we got to know the brand while also getting to know delicious sweet treats from Chef Jesse (at Amorsolo Drive, Rockwell.) Unfortunately, I won’t be able to wear the khakis that they’re known for but I’m not one to give up and will probably find my way into their plaids and their scarves. Already spotted some that I like. I don’t discriminate between menswear and womenswear anyway. Even childrenswear I sometimes eye.

If you’re a dude or a girl who has (or even knows) a dude, check out Timber Creek to be launched in a couple of weeks. Expert tip: if you want a free pair of Timber Creek pants, head over to the Atrium of Robinson’s Place Manila from October 13-19 for a free pair with a minimum purchase of Php2,000 on Wrangler products. Cool games and prizes also await. Get to it.

Author’s note: I hope everyone in Manila is now safe and dry. I really despise and am crippled by freakish weather and I can’t imagine how those forced to evacuate and see their houses and belongings submerged in floods must be feeling. My heart and prayers go out to you. Please stay alert and safe. Know the hotlines (and hashtags) to use. Looking forward to sunnier days.
