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?
This past Monday, Yeezy and Adidas dropped the latest Yeezy Boost 700 V1 colorway called “Magnet.” So many thoughts came to mind when this colorway was announced back in July. One of those thoughts was that I was more than likely going to pass on it for the teal blue colorway. However, days ahead of its release, it was announced that it would be a Yeezy Supply exclusive. Basically, the shoe was going to be available on their website and only in the U.S. that exclusivity attracted me more to the shoe. So I obviously ended up buying them.
They are definitely a nice pair of shoes. They have the most combination of colors since the Waverunner, which is a plus. The silhouette is the same as the other 700 V1s. The differences between this colorway and the rest is they used a nylon material for the base of the shoe, while all six previous colorway a had a mesh material base. Also, the shoe has less 3m than the other colorways, but that isn’t really a minus for me.
I picked outfit pieces to compliment my Yeezy Boost 700 Magnet sneakers. I paired my Magnets with long grey socks and some orange neon shorts from Urban Outfitters, which matched the orange accents on the sole of the sneakers. I finished the look with a white vintage T-shirt from DKNY, purchased from a local thrift store.
I love a good dad sneakers and these are a definite cop. What are your thoughts on the Yeezy Boost 700 Magnet?
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?
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.

It’s been a pretty gloomy week in south Texas. While, I’m been enjoying the cooler weather, a part of me is missing sunnier days.
An opportunity to help brighten up my day is with my wardrobe. I tend to stick to darker tone during winter, but sometimes you’ve got to add a pop of color.
Now when trying to add a pop of color to your outfit, try not to over do it. One colorful item will make you stand out! For my pop of color look, I added a blue DKNY bomber jacket over a white t-shirt, white leather converse and light washed torn jeans. The white tones of my outfit help my bomber jacket make the statement.
Make your colorful statement in winter with a bright jacket, pair of shoes or a bag!
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?
If 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.
The 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.
Over 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.
I’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.
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!
The hots days of summer just keep on coming, and staying cool is the top priority for everyone. When it comes to wardrobe, most of us will go with a light t-shirt and shorts to keep from sweating too much. The last thing on anyone’s mind is layers, but some fashionistas and fashionistos would disagree. And I think I see myself becoming one.
On several of my shopping adventures, I began to notice that many retailers are beginning to create outerwear pieces throughout the year. Of course, the summer jackets are made of lighter material. Even with lighter options, I didn’t see myself wearing a jacket in this summer heat. Until I stepped into DKNY.
I spotted this nice white hooded anorak jacket, and I immediately tried it on. What really caught my attention was that it looked very different to the anorak and windbreakers that I had seen at other stores. The perforated sleeves were an obvious stand out, I could tell that it was made for the summer months. I’m pretty sure the designer who created was really thinking “How can I convince someone to wear this jacket for summer?”
For someone like me who was effy about using jackets for summer, this DKNY jacket changed my mind. It’s perfect for the cooler summer nights when you want to stand out from the crowd. It goes great with my usual tee and torn jeans summer combination.
If you’re looking to integrating outerwear to your wardrobe, try a lightweight jacket or anorak like the one I bought.
May was all about trying to not to sweat in heat. I’m not big on wearing shorts, so I tried to stick to light colors, rolling up my sleeves and jeans and trying not to layer.
For the first look of the month, I decided to wear a light denim shirt with the sleeves rolled and acid washed jeans. The theme was denim on denim with a twist. I felt that two shades of blue denim is the norm, so I went with the acid wash, which is perfect for the weather of spring/summer. My Cole Haan canvas shoes are a stable for my hot weather looks.
With baseball season in full swing, I think my second look was appropriate. As athletic wear has slowly integrated itself into fashion, I figured I would show an example of this. My DKNY baseball shirt is from two spring season ago, but if you’re aware of the trends, sportswear has really influenced streetwear and high-fashion.
My final look for the month featured a capsule collection piece from Guess. This shirt is perfect to wear during the heat, because it’s white and oversized. I find it hard to wear anything tight, especially in hot weather. Always give your body room to breathe, or your shirt might end up soaked.
The unofficially start of summer has already passed, and June is here. I look forward to presenting you my looks for the month!
