After Work Attire!

Standard

After a long day at work, nothing feels better than taking of the work wear and slipping into something more comfortable. Of course, if you have plans to meet some friends for after work plans you might need to forget the sweats and wear something that won’t have people questioning your fashion sense.

With the days getting hotter, you might consider summer apparel that borders on leisure wear without making you seem like your ready for bed. For the hotter days, I’ll out switch my signature torn jeans look for jogger or shorts. In this case, I wore some acid wash jogger from Forever 21 for some subway and walking at the park with my boyfriend.

It became acceptable to integrate joggers into your casual wear a few years ago, and it’s a fashion choice I pick to stay cool. Add a (Topman) tee and layer it with a (Urban Outfitters) short sleeve button up shirt and you have the perfect summer look!

Think my outfit is too casual for after work plans? Switch out denim looking joggers for some khaki or navy joggers. Pair them with darker tone tees and button up shirts for after work attire that’s ready for dinner and/or drinks with friends.

 

My March Looks – Throwback Thursday

Standard

As winter ended and spring began, my looks for the month went from layers to tees. Here’s a look back at my March looks.

This pink tropical print bomber from Forever 21 gave me life! I’m still obsessed with it. Here’s to hoping that spring nights stay cool, so that I am able to wear it.

Zara and Forever 21 winter fashion

If my memory serves me well, this picture was taken on the last cold day of March. At least I got to wear my cool “Kanye” sweater.

Black PacSun Camp Shirt

Talk about another piece that gave me life. This muertos printed relaxed short sleeve button up camp shirt from PacSun will be seeing lots of action in the coming months. The material is perfect for a hot day, and the print is just so rad!

My final look for the month will be my uniform, torn jeans and cool tees!

As March comes to a close, I look forward to April and can’t wait share the looks I have in store.

Casual Weekends

Standard

PacSun shirt and New Balance Shoes

After several weekends of cold, rainy weather, this past Sunday the sun finally came out. It was great weather, and I was long overdue for a stroll at the park. I put on my Ray-Ban Wayfarer, and my boyfriend and I hit up the Woodlawn Lake Park for a walk and pics.

PacSun shirt and New Balance Shoes

I figured it was only fair that my outfit of the day match the casual feels of this sunny and breezy Sunday funday. I’ve never been a fan of horizontal stripes, but this Modern Amusement shirt spoke to me when I found it at PacSun, aka it was on sale. It has surprisingly become a favorite shirt of mine. It’s relaxed fit is perfect for warmer days, and the colored stripes are great for spring.

New Balance Shoes and Torn Jeans

I furthered my relaxed look with slim torn jeans from Forever 21. Now, I tend to stick to skinny jeans, but this pair of pants look pretty good rolled up and the torned loose fit is essential for the hot weather.

I finished off my look with a comfortable pair of New Balance shoes in my favorite color. There’s no shame in dressing for comfort, and a pair of New Balance shoes makes that decision much easier. It doesn’t hurt that they’re perfect for a walk at the park!

With spring officially here, I’m hoping that these sunny, breezy days are here to stay. What will you be wearing for spring?

 

Workwear for Creatives

Standard

Work look

Working at a digital marketing firm, dressing appropriately doesn’t mean wearing a suit and tie. Now, even though a suit is great, my type of dressing up doesn’t alway fit that standard. I enjoy wearing a nice pair of slim fit khakis with the cuffs rolled up and some funky socks. It’s great that I can rock this look majority of the time. Sure, when you’re meeting with clients it’s a requirement to wear business attire. However, on the days you have no meetings, try something similar to the outfit I wore this past week.

Gingham

I paired my khakis and socks with a lightweight gingham button down shirt, a timeless pattern that’s perfect for summer. With the summer heat just getting started, it’s best to stick to lighter colors and lightweight fabrics. Adult jobs usually don’t allow you to wear shorts to work, so this is a great way to keep cool.

Messenger Bag

I finished my workwear off with leather, lots of leather! My asos suede shoes and an awesome leather laptop bag from Aldo. Note, a nice bag leather bag gives you a “ready to kick butt at work” look.

If you get a chance, try loosen up your workwear. If you can’t, try this look on casual Friday or even during the weekend.

New Balance and Short-Sleeved Shirts Are Your Friends!

Standard

Summer Look

When the summer heat is blazing, casual wear becomes everybody’s best friend! This summer, Texas has been pretty hot with degrees in the triple digits. With this heat, it’s important to stay cool for the summer, and you can do that with a few summer fashion essentials.

H&M shirt

Short-sleeved shirt have become my best friend! I used to dislike them, because they reminded me of grandpa shirts. However, that opinion has changed! A thin short-sleeved shirt like this one from H&M will keep you feeling and looking cool. It’s a breathable fabric, so you don’t have to worry about sweating to the extreme. You can purchase a patterned or bright colored short-sleeved from H&M for only $12.99!

Joggers

To compliment your casual shirt, pick a nice pair of joggers instead of shorts. If you pick the right pair, you won’t be dreading the heat. Find a pair that is made of a thin (but quality) fabric. I paired my shirt with a pair of acid washed joggers from Forever 21. They look like denim, but they are thinner, letting my legs breath. Take a look at Forever 21 for a variety of a affordable joggers.

NB Shoes

Now the last thing you need for a cool summer look is a nice pair of casual shoes. A great brand that meets both comfort and cool is New Balance. Their shoes have a supportive midsole that won’t have you regretting wearing them for the entire day. Your feet will thank you for choosing New Balance!

Once you’ve picked a short-sleeved, joggers and a comfortable shoe that’s right for you, you’ll be ready to take on the summer heat!

Let me know what you think of my look and if there are any summer essentials you think I should try.

 

Saint Laurent Made Me Do It!

Standard

I’m a huge believer in fashion on a dime, but sometimes it’s great to invest into some designer pieces that will last you for a couple of years. I’ve always been admired the Saint Laurent look that former creative director Hedi Slimane brought to the fashion house, so I decided to invest into a pair of their Western Jodphur cropped boots.

SaintLaurentBoot

Now their boots range from $895 to $1,295, but thankfully they were having a sale on a pair that I had to have! I was able to purchase these cropped boots in tan suede for $589. Even though that’s still a lot of money, it beats paying $1,000! I looked at it as an investment, with great care they can last met for a couple of years, plus the upper and sole are made of 100 percent leather!

Now in order to get that grunge, streetwear look that Saint Laurent is famous for, I paired my boots with some biker jeans from Zara and a red plaid shirt from Forever 21.

SaintLaurentLook

If you ever plan on investing in a designer piece, I suggest buying a good pair of shoes or a nice bag, because it will go great with your more affordable pieces! Be sure to look out for sales at Saint Laurent or a designer that you admire, you’ll be surprised at the great items they have on sale.

Let me know what you think about my new pair of boots! Or if you agree in investing in designer pieces!

Street Wear For Days!

Standard

Hi guys! Sorry for not posting for about week, I’ve been busy with final school work and projects. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break.

Today, I’m presenting you with a street wear look that I think every stylish gentleman should try.

Oversized shirt/porkie pie hat-Topman

Bomber jacket-Zara

Skinny jeans-Forever 21

Desert shoes-Steve Madden

For this look, I am wearing an oversized print shirt from Topman, which I recommend every guy to buy at least one. They are relaxed and very comfortable, I suggest pairing them with a great pair of skinny jeans from Forever 21 or Topman.

Now for the chilly days you can add on a faux leather or leather jacket. A bomber or motorcycle jacket will make your street wear outfit pop. Topman carries affordable leather and faux leather jackets ranging $70 to $500.

I added a porkie pie hat to my outfit. A nice porkie pie hat adds some class to your look, and will get you many compliments.

Now the last but most important step is a pair of shoes.The thing I love most about this look is that you can pair it with a variety of shoes. Vans, Converse, Dr. Martens, combat boots, Chelsea boots, or desert boots. The shoes I’m wearing are the FRISCCO desert boots from Steve Madden.

I hope my street wear look inspires you to create a similar look. Tell me what you think about my look by commenting below! Until next time my friends, stay classy!
