Mickey mouse, torn jeans and studs

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?

Chill evening, cute outfit

This past weekend didn’t consist of any craziness and it was much needed. While I love heading out for a fun, crazy night, sometimes a quiet weekend doesn’t hurt. On a chill Saturday evening, I took a stroll around my neighborhood, and I figured I’d take a couple of photos of my cute outfit.

I started my Saturday outfit with a basic mustard colored tee from Forever 21, which was only $9.90. I paired my tee with some dark blue skinny jeans from H&M. I decided to give my dad sneakers a break and went with my white hi-top Converse from Urban Outfitters. It was a cool night, so I topped my look with an oversized distressed black jean jacket from Forever 21.

My outfit was perfect for a cool night. Ever dressed up just cause?

Workwear for Creatives

Work look

Working at a digital marketing firm, dressing appropriately doesn’t mean wearing a suit and tie. Now, even though a suit is great, my type of dressing up doesn’t alway fit that standard. I enjoy wearing a nice pair of slim fit khakis with the cuffs rolled up and some funky socks. It’s great that I can rock this look majority of the time. Sure, when you’re meeting with clients it’s a requirement to wear business attire. However, on the days you have no meetings, try something similar to the outfit I wore this past week.

Gingham

I paired my khakis and socks with a lightweight gingham button down shirt, a timeless pattern that’s perfect for summer. With the summer heat just getting started, it’s best to stick to lighter colors and lightweight fabrics. Adult jobs usually don’t allow you to wear shorts to work, so this is a great way to keep cool.

Messenger Bag

I finished my workwear off with leather, lots of leather! My asos suede shoes and an awesome leather laptop bag from Aldo. Note, a nice bag leather bag gives you a “ready to kick butt at work” look.

If you get a chance, try loosen up your workwear. If you can’t, try this look on casual Friday or even during the weekend.

New Balance and Short-Sleeved Shirts Are Your Friends!

Summer Look

When the summer heat is blazing, casual wear becomes everybody’s best friend! This summer, Texas has been pretty hot with degrees in the triple digits. With this heat, it’s important to stay cool for the summer, and you can do that with a few summer fashion essentials.

H&M shirt

Short-sleeved shirt have become my best friend! I used to dislike them, because they reminded me of grandpa shirts. However, that opinion has changed! A thin short-sleeved shirt like this one from H&M will keep you feeling and looking cool. It’s a breathable fabric, so you don’t have to worry about sweating to the extreme. You can purchase a patterned or bright colored short-sleeved from H&M for only $12.99!

Joggers

To compliment your casual shirt, pick a nice pair of joggers instead of shorts. If you pick the right pair, you won’t be dreading the heat. Find a pair that is made of a thin (but quality) fabric. I paired my shirt with a pair of acid washed joggers from Forever 21. They look like denim, but they are thinner, letting my legs breath. Take a look at Forever 21 for a variety of a affordable joggers.

NB Shoes

Now the last thing you need for a cool summer look is a nice pair of casual shoes. A great brand that meets both comfort and cool is New Balance. Their shoes have a supportive midsole that won’t have you regretting wearing them for the entire day. Your feet will thank you for choosing New Balance!

Once you’ve picked a short-sleeved, joggers and a comfortable shoe that’s right for you, you’ll be ready to take on the summer heat!

Let me know what you think of my look and if there are any summer essentials you think I should try.

 

Saint Laurent Made Me Do It!

I’m a huge believer in fashion on a dime, but sometimes it’s great to invest into some designer pieces that will last you for a couple of years. I’ve always been admired the Saint Laurent look that former creative director Hedi Slimane brought to the fashion house, so I decided to invest into a pair of their Western Jodphur cropped boots.

Now their boots range from $895 to $1,295, but thankfully they were having a sale on a pair that I had to have! I was able to purchase these cropped boots in tan suede for $589. Even though that’s still a lot of money, it beats paying $1,000! I looked at it as an investment, with great care they can last met for a couple of years, plus the upper and sole are made of 100 percent leather!

Now in order to get that grunge, streetwear look that Saint Laurent is famous for, I paired my boots with some biker jeans from Zara and a red plaid shirt from Forever 21.

If you ever plan on investing in a designer piece, I suggest buying a good pair of shoes or a nice bag, because it will go great with your more affordable pieces! Be sure to look out for sales at Saint Laurent or a designer that you admire, you’ll be surprised at the great items they have on sale.

Let me know what you think about my new pair of boots! Or if you agree in investing in designer pieces!

ASOS Shoes are Pretty Cool!

 

asos

It’s been a few months since I’ve been able to splurge money on shoes, but I was gifted a new pair this past week by my boyfriend. Since I’ve started my first grown up job as a PR Guy, I’ve had to up my business attire, so I figured I would ask for dress shoes.

I wanted a good pair of shoes but didn’t want to spend more than $80, so I decided to check out asos. I had browsed their website before, and I liked just about everything but didn’t want to commit to buying from a brand that shipped overseas. I figured I would give it a shot after catching these derby shoes in tan suede for only $55.

My boyfriend ordered them, and I got them in a week with no hassle! I worried that they would disappoint, but they didn’t. The shoes are a 100 percent suede, comfortable, stylish and are the same quality that you would find at competitors like Steve Madden or Aldo for less!

Next time you need a pair of shoes, consider purchasing them from asos! They carry dress shoes, sneakers and boots ranging from $25 to $500, so there’s a pair for every occasion. If you get a pair of shoes from asos let me know what you think!

New York Fashion Week: Men’s

Last fall, men’s fashion designers came together for the first New York Fashion Week: Men’s, which turned out to be a success. This past Monday, men’s fashion designers returned to NYFW: Men’s to show off their spring/summer collection.

If you’re like me, you don’t have access to attending the shows, so how does one get to experience NYFW: Men’s? Articles? Photos? Yes, but how about Snapchat?

NYFW: Men's

Snapchat is providing users a voyeuristic way of experiencing some of the runway shows, backstage shenanigans and a look at the celebrities attending.

My suggestion is to watch the Snapchat story before it’s gone! Watch it and tell me what you think.
