Streetwear Sunday

Standard

It’s been gloomy weather for the past week, but the sun came out on a Sunday and of course, I had to enjoy it with an awesome streetwear inspired outfit and a sometime at the farmer’s market.

While I’ve been stuck wearing mostly sweaters and wool jackets, I decided the sunny day called for a denim jacket. I sported my American Eagle Outfitters denim jacket over my olive long sleeve shirt from Forever 21.

I decided to go with a denim on denim look, but went with a pair of distressed gray jeans from H&M instead of blue jeans. The gray complimented the color of my olive tee, and didn’t clash or compete with my jean jacket. And for walking with comfort I went with my Black and white Old Skool Vans.

My outfit was perfect for a stroll on a sunny day at the Pearl Brewery, which was amazing. While living in San Antonio, I haven’t spent much time at this awesome hub for family, food and fun, so it was a nice change from the usual.

We even grabbed some ramen for lunch. The spicy miso tantan-man ramen from Tenko Ramen didn’t disappoint! I’m definitely getting it again on my next trip to the Pearl.

It was a great way to end the week. I finally got to wear an outfit that didn’t have to consist of a sweater or a wool jacket, and I got to enjoy the sunny day surrounded by nice people enjoying the day too.

Missing that Summer Fashion

Standard

This winter has seen colder days compared to last year. While it’s sort of welcomed. I’m missing the days when a t-shirt was all you needed. Here’s to hoping some sunnier days are ahead of us in south Texas.

In the meantime, here’s a throwback look to last August. Looks like I spent my day in a linen tee from H&M, some torn jeans from Zara, my go-to summer cap from Armani Exchange, my converse and a plaid shirt wrapped around my waist.

Come on, spring!

A pop of color to your wardrobe

It’s been a pretty gloomy week in south Texas. While, I’m been enjoying the cooler weather, a part of me is missing sunnier days.

An opportunity to help brighten up my day is with my wardrobe. I tend to stick to darker tone during winter, but sometimes you’ve got to add a pop of color.

Now when trying to add a pop of color to your outfit, try not to over do it. One colorful item will make you stand out! For my pop of color look, I added a blue DKNY bomber jacket over a white t-shirt, white leather converse and light washed torn jeans. The white tones of my outfit help my bomber jacket make the statement.

Make your colorful statement in winter with a bright jacket, pair of shoes or a bag!

Bomb Fashion for the Weekend

Standard

Mens-fashion-for-weekends-1

When you work a 40 hour work week Monday through Friday, you live for the weekends! Sure, I live for the fun, food and relaxing that comes with the weekend, but I also enjoy getting to dress exactly the way I want: fashionably. Not to say that my work attire is for the birds, but the handbook doesn’t let me wear torn jeans or converse.

With the weather somewhere between cold and warm this past weekend, I layered up my looks without long sleeves. My Saturday attire consisted of a new green pinstripe-stitched t-shirt from Forever 21, with a Zara bomber jacket. For jeans, I kept it light blue with some moto jeans from and finished off my look with my white leather converse and black snapback from H&M.

My bomb fashion was perfect for the shopping, lunching and partying that awaited me on Saturday. What’s does your weekend attire consist of?

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!

Well here we are again, it’s the start of another year! The beginning of the new year can mean a lot of things to different people, for me, 2018 is the start of bettering my body and mind. When I look back on 2017, I can’t complain. It was the year I completed my one year at my first post-grad job, the year I advanced my career with my second post-grad job, the year of fun concerts and the year I rediscovered my passion for blogging.

My 2018 resolutions are to get into better shape, to not take myself too seriously and to continue sharing my passion for fashion with you all! I hope not to slack off, but if I do, I will look back at this post and remind myself to not give up.

For my New Year’s weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to spend it in San Antonio. We already spent time with our families during Christmas break, so New Year’s was for us.

On the last Saturday before the break, we spent some time Brackenridge Park, one of our favorite parks. If it hasn’t already become apparent, I love spending time at my local parks. While, I’m not the biggest outdoor person, I love taking time to visit a park and enjoy nature. Plus, it’s a great place to clear one’s mind and take some photos!

My last outfit of 2017, consisted of new buys that I don’t regret! I was able to cop some grey torn skinny jeans from Zara year-end sale. If you haven’t visited Zara recently, make a trip. They always have great deals at the beginning of the new year. I paired my new jeans with an old distressed blue jean button up from Forever 21, that I layered on top of my black tee from PacSun.

I completed my look with my dark green cap from Aldo and my new hi-top Vans. Ever since I purchased the low-top version of the shoes I’m sporting, I’ve become obsessed with Vans. I mean, I’m obsessed with shoes overall!

As I think back to 2017, I realize how blessed I was. The good and the bad has led to where I’m at this very moment typing this. Here’s to more accomplishments in 2018 and not letting the bad moments get me down!

Holiday in Houston

Standard

Houston_Fashion_3The holidays are done, and a new year is almost upon us! I hope everyone had a great time with the ones you love. If you’re still on break, lucky you! For my holiday break, I headed to Houston to spend time with my mom and her boyfriend. Over the last year I’ve had more trips to Houston than I ever have, and I’m really falling in love with the city. It’s huge, ethnically diverse and there always seems to be something going on. Also, it doesn’t hurt that it’s the home of The Galleria!

Houston_FashionHouston_skyscrapersOn the day before Christmas, we headed out on the town, so I could see some sites on my short trip. We made a stop downtown at a park in front of city hall. The park was perfectly situated between city hall and a few skyscrapers. I find the Houston skyline to breathtaking, so I took a couple of photos.

Houston_Fashion_2On my outing at the park, I took some photos in front of the Reliant Energy Christmas tree and the water fountain in front of city hall. Since, it wasn’t super cold during the day, I stuck to wearing my new distressed black jean jacket from Forever 21. My denim jacket paired along with my yellow plaid shirt also from Forever 21 kept me warm enough throughout my day. I kept with the black denim for my jeans and topped off my look with some luxury á la Saint Laurent boots. I enjoyed my Houston outing with style!

Houston_Fashion_5Overall, I really enjoyed my holidays. I got to see my lovely mom, and I got spend time in a city I hope to live in soon. Until the new year!

Earthy Colors

Standard

Last weekend was full of adventure, with a trip with friends to Austin for the Trail of Lights and a night out on Sixth Street that almost led to being kicked out of a bar (bartender’s fault) there wasn’t a dull moment. While the short trip to and from Austin was great, a stroll in the park enjoying a cold, sunny Saturday was a needed highlight.

Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the cold, I do my best to enjoy it. Especially, since I live in south Texas where it’s hot 85 percent of the year. While I tend to stay with darker shades, the sunny day on Saturday called for earthy colors in my wardrobe.

When putting my outfit together, I knew that layers was the way to go. I started with a denim button up and added my mustard colored wool sweater over it, both from DKNY. Since my button up was a lighter denim, I went with a darker denim for my pants.

For footwear, I decided to wear my dark brown Urban Outfitters Chelsea boots, because nothing screams cold weather like a nice pair of boots. To help top off my look, I layered my dark green bomber jacket from Tarjay (Target) to help keep me warm. And keep me warm, the jacket did!

With winter only a few days away, will you still be rocking earthy tones or darker tones?
