You might be wondering why I categorized this blog as under "Tech" but there's a "Summer OOTD" alongside that title as well ... well my friends, I'd love to share a few outfit ideas best suited for summer indeed, yes, but it's also best to capture them with a gadget that's best-suited to take photos this season. And you probably guessed it right ... I want to talk about capturing the best summer outfits with this chic gadget namely, Oppo F1s that'll definitely make it easy for us to snap & save our OOTDs!

Who doesn't like to take selfies nowadays anyway, at least once every season? Who's not in any social media platforms? The millennial population overcrowds the social media stream among many forms! Oh ... and I'm still included there! HAHA! So hop on and click after the cut to read more as to how we can savor this summer heat with trendy outfits that match our style; and have the best selfies that show our quirky personalities, captured by one of the best tech gadgets we can find in town ... the Selfie Expert ... Oppo F1s ...


Given that it's always scorching hot in the Philippines, esp. during this spring ... oh we don't spring season so yeah I'm talkin' about summer ... my go-to style is always to put on trendy and cool clothes, those cute clothes for women that we see on display at supermalls or online shopping websites. That first photo I posted was during one of our getaways - me and my bestie.

When it comes to summer swimwear trends, I choose cute Korean swimwear style. I guess they best capture my anime personality. Polka dots, haltered tops, shorts, and cute colors. While I initially preferred black to hide my flabs, I realized that I need for vibrant colors to showcase my cool personality. Makes sense? LOL! Kidding aside, I just find it better to wear colorful ones this season. It's summer anyway! My fave colors then include mint green and yellow.

Selfie and Sunnies!

I always go out with sunnies as well. That's another staple style for me during the summer season. I love shades of different colors to accentuate the face other than the colorful outfits I wear. Two of my faves are these Aldo mint green sunnies and my violet Firmoo Eyewear as they are easy to match with my summer clothing.

When not swimming, I still prefer to go out with sunnies. And another style staple for me is to wear baseball caps / hat as part of my accessories. Not only do they add up to my overall look's theme, they also protect the face from the harmful sun rays. When I go to the malls, or hangout with friends, or even when I chill with an ice cream to beat the summer heat, I'd always be in a cap. If not in a cap, my hair will be tied up in a ponytail (yet another summer trend for hairstyle) using attractive bands like my favorite polka dotted ponytail.

Whether I'd be on a summer vacation travel mode and tour different places, or be in a a shopping mode, you'll normally catch me in sleeveless or off-shoulder tops and shorts. I don't wanna add to the unbearable heat this summer anymore so any clothing that'd allow me to breathe some fresh air would really work! I just add my style into it when it comes to my color choices and other accessories. In most of my photos, I'd be seen with lightweight, cotton clothing that really allows as much air and space for me, haha! I would avoid t-shirts (unless they're thin & super-soft I guess!), pants, and covered-up style, in all forms!

And how do we finally channel our inner fashionistas in an #OOTD post? It takes a little "science" to it. Ermmm ... not really but yeah ... these are my key takes on it. Some tips & tricks to snap your OOTDs!

Hot to Snag That Instagrammable OOTD Posts
  • find a good location where you can strike your best whacky poses
  • make sure that the "elements" in that location have contrasting colors (or else, you'll blend in)
  • pose with different emotional expressions; the whackier, the better
  • have someone take your photos or else, you'll look like a selfie master
  • add personality to your clothing; like me, as stated above, I wear colorful tones 
  • when it's summer-y, wear it breezy! (tank tops, shorts, the usual!)
  • sun is your bestfriend here so go to that place where sunlight is your light; find that natural light! 
  • as much as possible, be a no-filter beauty as seen on most popular fashion and beauty blogs!
  • if you really need to edit, I suggest use VSCO (my main filter is HB2)

To capture these best moments this summer, let me summarize then why it'd be best to use this gadget that I've initially introduced anyway ... it's not really an Oppo Phone Review per se but a feature of Oppo features, of some sorts!

Why Oppo F1s Would Be The Best Camera Phone to Take Summer OOTDs?

Oppo F1s ... The Selfie Expert 
comes with different colors like a fave for me ... rose gold!

16MP Front Camera = More Light, More Detail
  • front beauty camera with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and an F/2.0 aperture  
  • more light enters the camera, it enhances sensitivity 
  • natural looking selfies in low-light conditions ... and night time selfies! woohoo!
  • remember ... didn't I just say that you need that natural light? *wink* 
This camera is your bestfriend! Ergo, Oppo F1s Selfie Phone = your bestfriend too!

Beautify 4.0 
  • allows users to capture their best looks
  • blemish reduction
  • remember I also said, you'll need as much to be a no-filter-beauty? THIZ-IZ-IT!
Beautify 4.0 = blemish-free you!
Oppo can be the best camera phone then!

  • a host of plug-ins and filters available!
  • be creative, have fun watermarking your photos with time, date & temperature!
  • imagine less hassle in having so many other filter apps! 
  • convenience in putting watermarks in just 1 place (I won't need to go to other apps to put my @chenmeicai sign then in my photos! hooray!) 
almost a no-filter beauty! #OPPOF1sPH

Selfie Panorama
  • rotate the phone from side-to-side to take wide-angle selfies
  • the F1s automatically stitches together the photos
  • I won't be stuck with my "squares" haha! and my bestie would love it too!
Everyone gets to be in the photo! Nobody is missed out!

13MP Rear Camera ... Wonderful Night Shots!
  • with industry leading imaging chip
  • A 1/3.06-inch sensor allows the F1s to maximize light sensitivity, making wonderful light performance
  • large pixels to bump up the dynamic range and give pictures a vivid depth 
  • detail in capturing exceptionally clear photos
  • this also means NIGHT OOTDs are welcome!

Beauty to See and to Hold ... Tech Specs!
  • 5.5-inch screen to give us a better view of our OOTDs and selfies!
  • 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 Screen = super strong, it won't break though you drop it (but don't even try dropping it, geez!)
  • Two thread-thin metallic bands
  • it's the classy tech-class you want!
Glass Test in Youtube ... don't even try at home please!

0.22s Touch Access
  • finely crafted fingerprint reader
  • snappy, sensitive, and durable ... no hard pressing needed!
  • 0.1m thick only but the sensor is snappier and more accurate
  • more frequent usage = more sensitive
That whiz touch access! #OPPOF1S

Customizable Fingerprint-Activated App Launch
  • set different applications to launch with the sensor touch, with different fingers
  • try setting the camera app with the thumb, and chat app with the next finger, and so on!
  • think this way ... your finger is its command! LOL!
this fingerprint intelligence is freakin' cool!

3GB Ram ... Faster Than Ever!
  • 3GB RAM and octa-core 64-bit processor
  • smooth, multi-tasking, seamless switching between apps, movies, and music
  • this means it's also well-suited for gaming ... who likes games here? ME!!!
Mobile Gaming at its finest!

Dual Sim + Individual SD Slot = Triple Slot Tray
  • one is lonely, two is company, three is a crowd ... no ... a party!!!
  • the F1s give this two 4G SIM slot supporting speed up to 150 MBPS
  • additional memory card slot to expand storage up to 128GB
  • 32GB ROM = plenty of room for all our favorite media and memories = more selfies and OOTDs too!

All New ColorOS 3.0 Based on Android 5.1
  • faster, steadier, better!
  • seamlessly responsive, providing smooth and efficient performance, offering more memory and power to users
  • 150 optimized scenarios, 41% faster app time launch, 32% faster album boot speed
  • access your selfie and OOTD albums in an instant! that's how it translates!
That ColorOS 3.0! Android, my love!
