When is comes to adding new items to my wardrobe, I look for pieces that will make an outfit stand out. That is exactly what this Forever 21 cosmic space printed anorak does. I saw it online and was drawn to it, but I wanted to see how it looked in person. I found it at my local Forever 21 and purchased it after trying it on and liking the way it looked on me.
I ended up wearing it this weekend. I paired the cosmic anorak with some black joggers from DKNY and my high top white leather Converse. Since the anorak itself already makes a statement, I kept it simple with the other items in my outfit. I really recommend this anorak if you’re looking for something fun to add to your wardrobe. It is definitely a piece that works for the cool spring evenings. Forever 21 also has some matching joggers as well. I am still debating on whether I should cop those.
What are your thoughts on the cosmic space print anorak?
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?
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!✌🏻
We are a couple days away from fall and you can slowly start to feel the weather getting cooler in south Texas. As the weather starts to change, so does the fashion. My typical fall fashion usually consist of neutral colors, plaid shirts and torn denim. However, there is one trend I’m jumping on and that is florals.
Florals have become the norm when is comes to spring fashion, but are starting to find themselves in fall fashion, and I am here for it! Last week, I made my monthly stop at Zara for some shopping. I didn’t have anything specific that I was looking for, but then I came upon these torn skinny jeans with roses embroidered on them. At first sight, I fell in love and knew I had to try them on.
They ended up fitting perfectly, so I bought them! I just loved how the embroidered roses and leaves were as detailed as can be, and how it really complimented the torn denim.
I ended up finding myself wearing my new jeans throughout the entire weekend. These jeans really complimented my style. I enjoy wearing a basic tee, and the embroidered jeans allow my outfit to pop!
For this look, I paired my jeans with a PacSun heathered gray boxed t-shirt and wrapped a Forever 21 plaid shirt around my waist, which gave my look a 90s vibe. For accessories, I added a necklace to help accent my basic tee, and my Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer sunnies to help keep the sun out of my eyes. I finished off the look with my hi-top white leather Converse.
If you’re a guy who isn’t big on florals or embroidery, I suggest that you take a risk. Especially if you are into basic, the floral embroidery will make your outfit a pop, plus you’ll be on trend!
After a hectic time last week, I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Of course, relaxing to me involves being out and about in San Antonio. With my promise to become a penny pincher, my boyfriend and I settled on a date at the movies to watch Spider-Man Homecoming. If you haven’t watched it, I suggest you put it on your watch list for the weekend. The story and cast were perfect. As a fan of Andrew Garfield, I must admit this version was superior to the two previous incarnations (my opinion. Lol).
Along with finding penny pinching things to do, like going to the park. I am also trying to be smarter with my clothing purchases. I’ve recently started enjoying the wonders of thrifting. Yes, I’ve made thrift purchases, but majority of the times I’d find myself going to a thrift store and always feeling like I could never find anything.
Now, I’ve been heading to thrift stores with an open mind, and have found some great items similar to what I would find at the mall. The money saving part makes me so happy! I find myself liking three or four items and my purchase coming out to less than $20.
One of my recent purchases from Buffalo Exchange was a camel colored long sleeve suede shirt. The awesome thing about this purchase was that I’ve been looking for the exact kind of shirt from retailers online. However, they would always end up being $55 to $150, which was crazy to me. I ended up buying it for only $4.50.
I had seen several look books with suede shirts and thought it was perfect for putting over tees or tying around my waist (like in the photo). It’s great piece for my streetwear looks, like the outfit I wore this past Saturday. I paired my suede shirt with an all black look with jeans from Zara, a PacSun tee, my black and white Converse and DKNY cap.
This shirt was definitely a thrift store treasure, and I will continue to look at thrift stores for items I want before heading to a mall.
June started off on a busy note, but I was able to squeeze in some vacation time this past weekend. I hadn’t been to Dallas in over 8 years, so that was the destination for our 4-day getaway.
The first thing that came to mind was “What do I pack?” After looking at the hot forecast, I knew that short-sleeve shirts were probably the best option. Especially, when my boyfriend and I planned to walk around and see Dallas.
One of our first Dallas adventures was a stop at the Klyde Warren Park. It was such an amazing experience. The park is surrounded by the large buildings that help create the Dallas skyline. It was great seeing all types of people enjoying their Sunday afternoon with family and friends.
To help enjoy the sunny day comfortably, I wore one of my newest Pac Sun short sleeve camp shirts. The funky print and pink color made it a must-have for my wardrobe. And what better time, then to wear it on hot Dallas day.
I paired my shirt with some Zara light blue torn skinny jeans and my new white hi-tops Converse. The two pairs fit perfectly with my shirt, giving my outfit a summer ready look. To top of my look, I added my signature snapback.
Overall, I enjoyed my time at Klyde Warren Park. The people, cityscape and food trucks made it a wonderful experience.
I will be sharing another Dallas look next week. Stay tuned!
Two summers ago, a last minute internship opportunity led me to San Antonio, a place I still call home. I remember summer 2015 was all about my internship, summer classes, housewives marathons and wondering what the future would bring. That summer I also got to reconnect with friends I hadn’t seen in awhile.
My friend Tehua, who I met my freshman year of college at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi took these photos that summer. I hadn’t seen her for over 4 years, and we made plans to meet and catch up. Our get-together also turned into a photo session. Her passion for photography and my passion for fashion came together for this throwback look!
