Nature has a way of inspiring you to appreciate the simple things in life. In my case, my favorite part of the day is when the sun sets. The idea of ironies, the light and the dark, taking part of something so beautiful it makes you ponder a lot of things - something spiritual and emotional. It is during these moments that my head starts digging deep about the past and whats to come. I feel as if I have the comfort to be safe and the strength to do anything. But as soon as its over, for a moment, I feel scared and fragile. These simple things makes me more vivid - more alive.

I never saw more beautiful sunsets than the ones I saw in the Philippines. The way the colors play as if watercolors are painted on the sky. The sun sets quite fast but if you're in that moment, you feel as though time stops and it's just you - you may be by yourself but you don't feel lonely, as if a memory is keeping you company.
These moments for me are stimulating, it affects my mood and outlook throughout the rest of the day and gives me a feeling of nostalgia - like the feeling of a warm hug from a good friend or the feeling of being home after a long trip. Feeling inspired, I decided to emulate through fashion my connection with sunsets by wearing its warm and eye-catching colors. These are the colors I don't usually wear but somehow it gave me a sense of easiness and boldness at the same time.
Inspiration is inevitable. So whatever it is that keeps you inspired, carry it close to your heart. It would bring you back good old memories or take you in a creative artistic journey.
