Cheetah print quarantine fashion

This past weekend, I got bored again while in quarantine and decided to raid my closet and take pictures of whatever outfit I was able to put together. I tried looking at what I hadn’t worn in a while… before COVID.

The cheetah short sleeve shirt was the stand out of the group. I recall buying it years ago, like 8 or so years ago at a PacSun. It’s always stuck with me, but for some reason, I never really wanted to wear it out. There was many reasons for this, I’m prone to uneven tans, so my body always never matched my face, neck and arms. I also didn’t like how it looked on me when I was heavier.

I remember the first time I actually wore it out was a year ago for The 1975 concert in Austin. It was hot and I thought it would be good to use it. Anyway, this is probably my second time actually wearing. Of course, it’s not like I really went anywhere in it. I just put it on for my little photoshoot.

While my look is pretty relaxed and a bit basic, it’s fitting for a weekend in quarantine. I paired my shirt with the same shorts I wore to The 1975 concert. Really, the only difference between the two looks are the socks, shoes and the 20 plus pounds gone.

I’m not opposed to wearing this look out to brunch in the future. Maybe a wild themed brunch?

 

Color blocking during quarantine

With the pandemic going on, there hasn’t been much reason for me to dress up. But quarantine boredom has struck me these past few weeks, and I’ve felt the need to take a look at my closet and think of outfits I want to wear when this is all over. Looking at my wardrobe, I’ve realized how much clothes I have that has to been worn. I’ll admit that some of the reason I haven’t worn clothes is because I’ve bought items with the intention of wearing it when I started feeling good about my body. And I’m finally here! I’m comfortable with myself and why not start featuring my looks?

In this featured look, I’m wearing a cute color block rayon button up shirt I purchased at Forever 21 in the fall. I remember trying this shirt on in-store and loving the way it looked on me. This shirt really screams spring/summer and with the pandemic there has been no reason to really wear this shirt. I guess maybe the next time I go grocery shopping? I definitely see myself wearing this for a brunch get together with friends.

I paired the shirt with some paint splattered black dad jeans from Urban Outfitters and my white hi-top leather Converse. Here’s looking forward to the day I can wear this outfit anywhere but my apartment.

Thinking in a Neon Tee

We’re at the midpoint in 2020 and we’re still dealing with coronavirus. With this going on, there haven’t been many outings for me that didn’t involve grocery shopping or heading to the gym. So I haven’t put much efforts into my outfits. But over the weekend, I felt like putting something together. Now, I know my outfit isn’t groundbreaking, but it’s definitely a step up from the wrinkled tee and shorts I use to head down to the corner store.

For this look, I brought neon and houndstooth together for a street wear look. I purchased my Zara neon tee from Buffalo Outlet. Thrift finds are usually one in a million, but I’m sure you can get a Zara neon tee from a Zara store. I paired the tee with my Houndstooth joggers, I purchased at Urban Outfitters about a year ago. I haven’t seen this type of jogger recently on their website, but I’m sure come fall there might be a similar style. I finished the look with my hi-tip white leather Converse.

While I didn’t end up going anywhere in this outfit, I loved putting together the look. With the pandemic going on, what’s been your go-to quarantine fashion? Are you putting efforts into outfits when you go out?

Check out my Kim Petra’s T-Shirt

From the coronavirus pandemic to the current fight to end police brutality and systematic racism, the year has brought some challenges our way. Due to the current state of things, I haven’t found it appropriate to blog about fashion. But as the days have progressed, I’ve found that I need to put energy into things I like in order to feel some sort of happiness during this time.

I’ve started my road to happiness with the creation of my YouTube channel Guys Loves Bravo TV, and now I think it’s time to start up my fashion blog again. While I can’t guarantee a blog every week, as outings into town are still very scarce, I will guarantee fashion blog content more frequently than I’ve currently been posting.

Let me start off with featuring my Kim Petra’s pink T-shirt. I bought it a few months ago on Kim’s website. She released it for a limited time and that made me want it even more. It’s definitely the cool shot of her serving a look that makes the shirt. While I haven’t been able to wear the shirt out yet, I figured I’d take a look at my wardrobe and see what I could pair it with. I ended up liking how it looked with my torn sad jeans from Urban Outfitters and my Converses.

It was definitely a must for my wardrobe and I’m glad I bought it. What are your thoughts on my Kim Petra’s T-shirt? Do you like it or is it a no?

Bold Solid Tees

The first official day of Spring is over a month away, but my wardrobe is starting to show hints of spring already. It’s partially due to the Texas weather, but I figured I’d take this time to talk about one of the big trends I’ll be rocking for Spring 2020: Bold solid colored T-shirt.

In the past, I strayed away from solid tees that weren’t black, navy blue, dark green or grey. I always felt self-conscious with how fitted pastel or light colored solid tees looked on me. But now, I’m in a place where I’m comfortable with how fitted tees fit my body.

In this featured look, I’m wearing a fitted yellow ringer crew neck T-shirt from Forever 21. I had actually purchased this tee awhile back, but I didn’t love how it previously fit my body. Now, I’m loving it. I tucked the tee into my lake wash dad jeans from Urban Outfitters and finished off the look with some white leather hi-top Converse.

My look had me ready for the fun weekend ahead! I can definitely see myself rocking the solid tees and dad jeans with a variety of Spring worthy colors. With the bloomy season coming in a few weeks, will you be rocking bold colors?

The Dad Effect

For the last few years, the dad effect has taken over men’s streetwear and has found its way into my wardrobe. From the look of my photos, I obviously don’t know how to act! I love the dad fit, especially dad jeans! In my featured weekend look, I wore some BDG light wash torn dad jeans from Urban Outfitters, which I totally recommend. The relaxed cut with a tapered leg is a perfect medium between skinny and straight.

I was wanting a basic look with a pop of color, so I paired my dad jeans with an orange long sleeve T-shirt from PacSun. The orange color was perfect for a sunny Saturday!

The sunny day called for a cap, so I went with my boyfriend’s Kim Petras pink dad hat, which added another pop of color!

Finishing off my look, I went with a pair of white hi-top Converse, because they are iconic and timeless and definitely complimented my cool dad aesthetic. Once I laced up my shoes, I was ready for a fantastic day out and about with my boyfriend.

With the dad style here and showing no signs of going anywhere, are you embracing it?

Cute Concert Merch from Kim Petras

A month ago, I got to see my lord and savior Kim Petras for the second time in my life! The queen was on her Clarity Tour and she just knocked it out of the park with her performance. Mama know how to put on a show and she also knows how to come up with some cute merch!

I literally went crazy at the merch table and spent about $90, but I had to have her merch! One T-shirt in particular caught my eye when I looking up her merch on Twitter: The Kim Petras holding a koala T-shirt. The meme-worthy T-shirt needed to be copped and copped I did.

I usually refrain from wearing white, because I don’t find it flattering on me. But the moment I put on the tee, I loved it! The fabric is soft and the fit wasn’t tight, which I like. I’ve been tucking in my tees lately and this one looks good tucked in. In this look, I paired the tee with some dad fit jeans from Urban Outfitters and some classic Converse.  The look was perfect for a cool, sunny Saturday.

If you’re looking to cop some merch from Kim Petras. I definitely recommend! The quality and creativity is there! Check out her merch store here, if you aren’t seeing her on tour.

Casual Vibes

If there’s one thing that hasn’t changed in my wardrobe as I get older, it would be torn denim. You really can’t go wrong with torn denim! Dress it up or dress it down, you can add torn denim to almost any outfit.

In my featured look, I went for casual vibes for my Saturday look, so I sort of went crazy with the torn denim. I started off with my Zara skinny jeans I picked up in-store a few years ago. I combined my jeans with a dark short sleeve tee, which is actually my Kacey Musgraves happy & sad smiley concert tee.  I needed layers on this chilly day, so I went with a red and black plaid shirt, which complimented my dark denim.

Now the risky choice was my Zara torn jean denim jacket, because of it’s lighter denim and torn look. However, I think the contrast was needed to balance out my mostly dark tone look. To help the balance, I finished off the look with my Yeezy 700 waverunners. The grey tones were a needed compliment to the look, plus the sneakers gave the look  the casual vibes I was wanting.

What do you think about my causal Saturday look? What are your favorite pieces or looks during the weekend?

Serving Gay Boots

Can we say obsessed? I am honestly obsessed with my featured look! The mastermind behind my look is none other than my boyfriend. It was a Saturday afternoon. We had a few looks to shoot and out of nowhere the “Don’t Tell Me” music video by Madonna and the outfit idea came to him. I was pretty much hesitant at first. Mostly because his Madonna obsession has gotten to me, but I digress. I decided to go with it, and I can honestly say that it’s one of my favorite looks ever.

Breaking down the outfit: the light blue denim shirt from DKNY was the first item picked. Next were the blue skinny jeans from H&M. I think at first, we were both hesitant about the fit, but I haven’t really been wearing denim for a hot minute and all I used to wear was skinny jeans. I would die before purchasing a boot or straight cut jean. Anyway, the pants ended up fitting the look perfectly. Next were my Calvin Klein silver boots, which I purchased over a year ago. I’ve haven’t worn them out, but I purchased them after finding out Raf Simons was leaving Calvin Klein. His aesthetic was amazing, and I needed a piece of it! To finish of the look, we went with a leather jacket I picked up from Zara a few years back and a navy hat from Topman.

I love this look, and with fall here, I will definitely rocking this look on a night out! What looks are you curious to try?
