Do you ever wear a new outfit with nowhere to go? That was me on a Monday after work.
I’ve recently tried to cut back on the shopping. With several concerts and a big trip coming up, I got to save up. But when I need to add a little something to my wardrobe, I can always count on Forever 21.
I purchased this green and yellow striped long sleeve and mustard yellow button-front jacket two weekends ago. I intended to wear it in a weekend trip to Austin, but that ended up not happening. So I figured, why not where it on Monday evening?
I paired my new purchase with some acid washed joggers, mustard colored long socks and dove colored Fila Disruptor sneakers.
I would definitely say these new purchases compliment my current wardrobe. What are your thoughts on this look?
I’ve become an unintentional sneaker head in the last few months and my main obsession has become adidas Yeezy sneakers. The Yeezy 700 sneaker is my favorite silhouette, and the static color way has to be the best one yet.
The Yeezy 700 static just slaps. It’s a clean color way that will go with just about everything. The 3m reflective material literally makes the shoe stand out when flash or any light hits it.
I paired my Yeezy 700 static sneakers with a mostly all black outfit. I started off with some Urban Outfitters black joggers, put on a Forever 21 striped long sleeve tee and a distressed lack denim jacket. The dark toned outfit went well with the gloomy weather and the shoes gave my outfit a pop.
I tried to give some 70s fashion realness to my outfit last Thursday for my company’s yearly summit, which was 70s themed for its 45th anniversary. I enjoy a good theme and I surprisingly had some 70s inspired items in my wardrobe.
I started off with some yellow and black plaid pants from Forever 21. While the pattern is 70s influenced, the cut is a modern straight fit. I paired it with a blue jean button up shirt, which I don’t think was very 70s, but my Forever 21 corduroy trucker jacket made up for it. I finished my look with my white leather Converse. I mean Converse transcend every decade, so it was safe going with them.
While my look wasn’t a 100 percent authentic, the colors, patterns and corduroy do scream 70s. Don’t you just like it when you have clothes in your wardrobe that fits a theme?
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?
It’s a cool and rainy day in San Antonio. It finally feels like fall is here, so I had to bring out the fall fashion with fall colors.
For the top portion of my look, I started with a red brick colored T-shirt and layered it with a mustard colored corduroy jacket. I got both pieces from Forever 21. The jacket is sold out but you can find a similar one at ASOS. The colors definitely compliment each other and they say fall!
I went with my dad fit jeans and these cool Fila x Pierre Cardin Disruptor shoes. You can find the jeans and shoes at Urban Outfitters. I wasn’t sure about the polka dot shoes at first, but I’ve been about dad shoes lately, and I figured why not?
What colors and pieces are you excited to wear for fall?
I’ve jumped on the fall trend bandwagon of plaid pants and dad sneakers with my recent look. I’ve always had a thing for plaid, but I’ve mainly kept it to flannel until now. I purchased these plaid woven trousers from Forever 21 for about $27. If you’re looking to cop affordable plaid items that mirror the runway looks, I suggest Forever 21, Topman or Zara.
For dad sneakers, you won’t find a shortage of them all ranging in price point. If you don’t plan to drop $895 or more on shoes like the Balenciaga Triple S, look no further than the Fila Disruptors. They have the chunky look that’s all the rage for only $60 and above. I got my Urban Outfitters exclusive Fila Disruptors for only $80. I am pretty much obsessed with them and ordered another pair of Disruptors that should be coming my way very soon.
Are you loving the plaid and dad sneaker trends?
The Texas heat has come full force this summer. Some time out and about during the weekend requires an outfit that won’t have you wanting to ditch plans.
My go-to outfit for a hot summer day is all planned around shorts. There was a time that I just couldn’t get with the shorts program. It came down to two reason: I didn’t like my legs, which at this point I’m not self conscious of and the fact that I could never find shorts in a fit I liked.
Men’s fast fashion has come a long way. I feel the it has more ways to go, but the options are much better. I found these mustard colored woven till shorts at Forever 21. I love the fact they are fitted and have some stretch to them. Those were the two things I was looking for in a pair of shorts. I just can’t get behind wearing shorts that go below the knee or that are loose fitting.
I checked online and these shorts are still available and in different colors. I put these shorts on my recommended list. Be sure to get a pair if you’re looking to add more shorts to your summer wardrobe.
