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?

A Yeezy Boost Look

Standard

yeezy_boost_style_5If you’ve made it past the title, then you know this post is about the Yeezy Boost… the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0 to be exact. I always planed on buying a pair of Yeezys. However, I would always end up oversleeping or forgetting when they went on sale. Also, some colors just didn’t appeal to me, but these did.

yeezy_boost_beluga_2The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0 were must haves, because I knew the neutral gray shade would make it a staple for just about any street style look. I wasn’t expecting to love them as much as I did. They’re stylish and comfortable, it also doesn’t hurt that their limited release makes them and every pair of Yeezys unique.

yeezy_boost_style_1Over the weekend, I got to wear my new shoes for some time out on the town. I paired my Yeezys with a similar shade of DKNY joggers and kept with the neutral tones with a navy DKNY bomber and a green tee from Forever 21.

yeezy_boost_2_1I’m not the biggest fan of Kanye West, but I admire his fashion sense and his collaboration with Adidas on the Yeezys are is just right! If you haven’t grabbed a pair, I highly recommend trying until you do. They will be a great investment to your wardrobe.

Cold Temperatures and Velour Hoodies

Standard

I get excited every year when the cold weather arrives, because it is hot 364 days of the year in south Texas, and I have to enjoy that one day of cold. Okay, I’m slightly exaggerating, but it’s cold for just a few days. As the cold front comes in, I start wear the hoodies, sweaters and jackets that have been put away. I always say I don’t need anymore cold weather clothes, but I always end up buying something new. This year has been no exception.

A week before the Black Friday rush, I found myself doing some window shopping, and came upon my favorite store, DKNY. It had been awhile since I had stepped into the store, and in that first step I saw something I just had to have: a black velour hoodie.

Now to be totally honest, I have been hating on velour anything, but for some reason I fell in love with this velour hoodie at first sight. When I tried it on, it made me want it even more. I guess when your favorite brand does something you hate, you end up loving it.

I got the chance to wear my new velour hoodie over the weekend, and it was the perfect streetwear piece to add to my closet. I paired it with some light grey torn skinny jeans from H&M and my new pair of black and white Old Skool Vans.

The hoodie is great with or without an undershirt. If you plan on wearing an undershirt, try wearing a white or grey longline tee. The color will allow you to balance out the tones, while the length lets your undershirt be seen.

So the morale of this blog post is to never knock a trend without trying it out first!

Streetwear for the cool evening

Standard

As I’ve transitioned into a new job position with a new employer, I’ve sadly been mia from my blog. However, I am back with some new content!

This past weekend a cold front came into town, and I immediately took that a sign to bring out the fall/winter clothes. I mean, I always stock up clothing for the cooler days, but living in south Texas, those days take some time to get here.

To enjoy the weather, my boyfriend and I headed to the park on Sunday evening. It felt so good to enjoy a stroll without sweating from the get go.

While I traditionally like to stick to the earthy colors of fall, I wanted to rock my cool Forever 21 mint-colored anorak. I was obsessed with it when I bought it in the summer. However, it just wasn’t realistic to wear it in the 100 degree weather.

I paired my anorak with my light wash torn skinny jeans from Zara. It only made sense to keep my look on the brighter side of things with lighter colors. That’s why I ended up pairing my anorak with light jeans and my white leather Converse.

Even though my look didn’t have any earthy tones to it, I loved it! It’s always good to break the fashion rules, plus it’s better when you stand out a little.

Well, until next time!✌🏻
