With the pandemic going on, there hasn’t been much reason for me to dress up. But quarantine boredom has struck me these past few weeks, and I’ve felt the need to take a look at my closet and think of outfits I want to wear when this is all over. Looking at my wardrobe, I’ve realized how much clothes I have that has to been worn. I’ll admit that some of the reason I haven’t worn clothes is because I’ve bought items with the intention of wearing it when I started feeling good about my body. And I’m finally here! I’m comfortable with myself and why not start featuring my looks?
In this featured look, I’m wearing a cute color block rayon button up shirt I purchased at Forever 21 in the fall. I remember trying this shirt on in-store and loving the way it looked on me. This shirt really screams spring/summer and with the pandemic there has been no reason to really wear this shirt. I guess maybe the next time I go grocery shopping? I definitely see myself wearing this for a brunch get together with friends.
I paired the shirt with some paint splattered black dad jeans from Urban Outfitters and my white hi-top leather Converse. Here’s looking forward to the day I can wear this outfit anywhere but my apartment.
These past months have not given much reason to dress up for anything. I’m usually in the same tee and shorts throughout the day. The times I do need to go to the office for work, I’ll dress appropriately.
However, I had Friday off and figured I’d dress up and take a couple of photos of an outfit I would wear out if I could. My featured T-shirt hasn’t really seen much wear. I bought it about two years ago at Forever 21 and ended up not liking it on myself. I guess at that time, I was dealing with some body issues. I’m in a better place now, and I definitely liked the way the tee looked on me.
I decided to pair my striped tee with a pair of torn skinny jeans from Zara. Tucked in the tee and rolled the sleeves, which was my boyfriend’s idea and finished the look off with my white leather hi-top converse. I fell in love with this look, and I can’t wait for a time to be able to wear it out. Maybe a fall brunch? Who knows.
If you like the tee, I don’t think Forever 21 has it anymore, but I did find another striped tee I liked, if you want to check it out.
Let me know your thoughts on my outfit and tell me what you can’t wait to wear come the end of quarantine.
The first official day of Spring is over a month away, but my wardrobe is starting to show hints of spring already. It’s partially due to the Texas weather, but I figured I’d take this time to talk about one of the big trends I’ll be rocking for Spring 2020: Bold solid colored T-shirt.
In the past, I strayed away from solid tees that weren’t black, navy blue, dark green or grey. I always felt self-conscious with how fitted pastel or light colored solid tees looked on me. But now, I’m in a place where I’m comfortable with how fitted tees fit my body.
My look had me ready for the fun weekend ahead! I can definitely see myself rocking the solid tees and dad jeans with a variety of Spring worthy colors. With the bloomy season coming in a few weeks, will you be rocking bold colors?
Have you ever heard the saying, “fall is when I’ll starting dressing nice?” Well that saying couldn’t be truer for me. The temperatures have lowered just a little, and I officially don’t know how to act. I’m layering, wearing jeans and accessories when I can. I find easier to accessorize and layer, because I’m not sweating buckets.
In this weekend look, I added an American Eagle jean jacket I purchased a few years ago, to my look. Giving me a sort of Canadian tuxedo look, minus the jean shirt. I went with a short sleeve striped button up from Forever 21 tucked into my Urban Outfitters dad jeans. I finished my look with my Yeezy 700 V2 Static shoes and a black belt.
The look definitely gives me a fall dad chic look! What types of looks will you be rocking for fall? More layering?
When the fall weather starts to hit, I start to feel myself and make an effort with my work outfits. Ok, I wouldn’t say this featured look is the most effort I’ve put in an outfit, but the simple add of a jacket can definitely make an outfit pop.
My Forever 21 tan jacket plus my Yeezy 700 Analog sneakers, khakis and button up shirt make up my dad chic look!
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?
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’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 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?
