Every year I buy sweaters I don’t need, and every year I tell myself to stop. Guess how this year is going? Same. Only this time, I’m sticking to thrift store sweaters.
I’ve been obsessed with 80s dad sweaters and there’s no better place to find them than a thrift store. I found this cool purple oversized sweater from a local thrift store for only $5. The sweater’s purple with hints of turquoise and pink was perfect on a cold rainy day.
If you’re looking to stock up on sweaters, I definitely recommend thrift stores. Especially, if you’re looking for vintage sweaters!
It’s a cool and rainy day in San Antonio. It finally feels like fall is here, so I had to bring out the fall fashion with fall colors.
For the top portion of my look, I started with a red brick colored T-shirt and layered it with a mustard colored corduroy jacket. I got both pieces from Forever 21. The jacket is sold out but you can find a similar one at ASOS. The colors definitely compliment each other and they say fall!
I went with my dad fit jeans and these cool Fila x Pierre Cardin Disruptor shoes. You can find the jeans and shoes at Urban Outfitters. I wasn’t sure about the polka dot shoes at first, but I’ve been about dad shoes lately, and I figured why not?
What colors and pieces are you excited to wear for fall?
The Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve was hyped for so long and while it didn’t sell out in an hour, it didn’t disappoint. At least not for me.
The shoe has a very unique mixture of black, brown, purple and electric green. The combination sounds a little crazy but it totally works. The earthy shades are perfect for fall and winter.
I paired my Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve shoes with some torn black skinny jeans from Zara and an oversized grey sweater from Target. I’d usually stick to black or white shoes with an outfit like this, but the Yeezys definitely work.
Do I love these shoes? Yes. Do I think people who were turned off by the colors missed out? Absolutely. The 700 silhouette serves the chunky dad shoe realness that’s in right now. While the color is typical, that’s what makes it a must-have!
What are your thoughts on the Yeezy Boost 700 in Mauve?
Can I just say that dad sneakers have taken over my life. I am in love with my Fila Disruptor II shoes from Urban Outfitters, the newest additions to my shoe collection.
I got my Filas in a dove colorway, which is exclusive to Urban Outfitters. I was hesitant to get the white ones, and the black ones just looked like work shoes, so dove it was!
I wore them for the first time with some houndstooth print joggers from Urban Outfitters, which photographed so well. My autumn red shirt was from Forever 21.
I ended up rocking the look the entire day. Have you gotten on the dad sneaker train?👟
Let me start off this post by saying The Bloom Tour in Austin was amazing! Leland, Kim Petras and Troye Sivan put on great performances. I also got to meet Kim Petras before the show. She was so nice and down to earth. Thank you to Kim for taking the time to meet up with me and a few other fans.💖
Obviously, I purchased some merch at the show. I got a Kim Petras tee, which I rocked during the concert and a Troye Sivan tee, I wore the day after.
I paired my Bloom Tour tee with tan corduroy dad fit pants from Urban Outfitters and my new Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runners for a dad chic look.
The concert tees are made for dad chic realness and so are the Wave Runners, my recent Yeezy cop!
Are you loving the dad chic look? Do you plan to go to The Bloom Tour?
I’ve jumped on the fall trend bandwagon of plaid pants and dad sneakers with my recent look. I’ve always had a thing for plaid, but I’ve mainly kept it to flannel until now. I purchased these plaid woven trousers from Forever 21 for about $27. If you’re looking to cop affordable plaid items that mirror the runway looks, I suggest Forever 21, Topman or Zara.
For dad sneakers, you won’t find a shortage of them all ranging in price point. If you don’t plan to drop $895 or more on shoes like the Balenciaga Triple S, look no further than the Fila Disruptors. They have the chunky look that’s all the rage for only $60 and above. I got my Urban Outfitters exclusive Fila Disruptors for only $80. I am pretty much obsessed with them and ordered another pair of Disruptors that should be coming my way very soon.
Are you loving the plaid and dad sneaker trends?
It’s no surprise that I am obsessed with shoes. For the last seven years, I’ve collected a variety of dress shoes, casual shoes, boots, etc., and recently my shoe obsession has turned to sneakers.
I’ve purchased a couple of pairs of shoes, and I plan to feature them as they arrive. My first feature are my Saucony Shadow Original shoes.
I was not familiar with the Saucony brand. I’d seen it on a handful of people before and had seen an outlet store before. However the minute I saw these shoes on the Urban Outfitters website, I had to have them!
The shoes are obviously stylish and comfortable too! I’ve worn them with a number of outfits in the short minute I’ve had them, and they go with pretty much anything.
If you’ve fallen for or are curious about the recent dad sneaker craze, I totally recommend these. They are stylish without having all a crazy color way combination. They are a good pair to start with! What do you think about Saucony?
