The Weekend Uniform

Urban-Outfitters-outfit-1Urban-Outfitters-outfit-2Urban-Outfitters-outfit-3

It’s been a HOT couple of days in Texas. Like over 100 degrees hot. To get through these hot days on the weekend, shorts have become my best friend. For a big portion of my 27 years on this earth, I haven’t been a big fan of shorts, even on the hottest days. But that has changed, obviously!

Shorts have become my best friend this summer. I’ve invested in my new friendship by purchasing several shorts from Urban Outfitters, like the ones featured in this blog. I fell in love with this UO geo print woven shorts, that I bought them in two colors. I’ll feature the other colorway at a later date. I paired these pink pair with a Chvrches concert tee and matching Yeezy 700 Boost in the inertia colorway. These shorts keep me cool on a hot summer day!

Spring feels

Spring-feels-1

Spring is finally here but that doesn’t mean jackets are over. The temperature can drop in the evenings and a thin lightweight jacket like the one I’m featuring will keep you warm and stylish. I bought my jacket from DKNY two years ago and you can find a similar jacket at Target for a more affordable price than I paid for.

I paired my jacket with a brick colored tee from Forever 21. This tee is spring ready and gives my outfit a pop of color. For pants, I went with some grey plaid joggers from Forever 21. Joggers are around all year long and are a great alternative for pants when it gets hot in the spring months.

For shoes, I went with my New Balance 300 tan leather sneakers from Urban Outfitters. You can find similar shoes on the New Balance website. They are very comfortable and stylish, which makes them great for spring!

I completed my look with a black cap to match the jacket. Spring is a great inbetween when it comes to weather. Most days you’ll wear shorts, but some nights, you can add some outwear to your wardrobe without breaking a sweat.

I can’t wait to share other spring outfits. What are your thoughts on jackets for spring?

Corduroy rules

corduroy-for-men-4

Corduroy blew up this past fall/winter and it looks like it is staying for spring, according to GQ.  While corduroy hasn’t really gone anywhere, it doesn’t seem like it had been as big as it was this past fall. I saw corduroy on the website of every streetwear label I wear and it ended up invading my wardrobe.

corduroy-for-men-1

I purchased this cool color block corduroy jacket from Urban Outfitters, along with the khaki corduroy pants. They have been great additions to my wardrobe, especially the jacket. It is a pretty cool statement piece!

I paired the jacket with the corduroy pants. I was originally hesitant to do this, but I think the corduroy on corduroy look came out pretty good.

I finished the look with a black and white striped tee from Forever 21 and Sk8-hi top Vans. Once upon a time a patched jacket and striped tee would probably be a no-no, but it is all about clashing nowadays, so why not?

I won’t be rocking these pieces as the weather gets warmer, but I wouldn’t mind wearing corduroy shorts. I just need to find me a good pair.

What are your thoughts on corduroy for spring?

Mickey mouse, torn jeans and studs

torn-jeans-studs-1

Mickey Mouse, torn jeans and studs are just some of my favorite things, and they all came together for this look. Winter is almost coming to a close but that doesn’t mean the cold will be going away. Spring can some times have cold nights and my Mickey Mouse sweater will definitely work for those nights.

I copped the Mickey Mouse sweater at H&M.  I rarely ever find anything for myself at H&M, but for some reason this sweater caught my attention. After trying it on, I decided it was a must! And it’s been a great addition to my wardrobe. I’ve gotten compliments from people when wearing it. You really don’t need to wear any other statement items when wearing this sweater.

I stayed with dark colors for this look. I paired the sweater with some grey torn jeans from Zara and some studded high top sneakers from Steve Madden that I haven’t worn in awhile. The torn denim and studded shoes contrast with the sweater, but they still definitely work together. It gives my outfit a bit of an edge to it. Haha.

What are your thoughts on the sweater? How would you style it?

Obsessed with the Yeezy 700 Salt

yeezy_boost_700_salt_2

I know am late to the party, but I am officially obsessed with the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 salt. I honestly slept on these shoes, when they went on sale. I regretted it and a few days later, thanks to GOAT, I was able to purchase them.

yeezy_boost_700_salt_1

My first impression out of the box was, “why did I sleep on these?!” Yes, it is muted color way, but it works for me. I usually stay away from all black or white tonal chunky shoes, because they can look like work shoes. However, these don’t.

The salt color way falls somewhere between grey, blue and white. The muted colors makes it  easy to go with almost any outfit. I used it throughout the weekend with different outfits and it worked.

If you missed out on these shoes, I definitely recommend getting them off GOAT or StockX. Another thing that makes these a must cop is the fact the shoes had low stock numbers, which makes them sort of rare. The inertia color way just released and that one has double the stock of the salts.
