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.
It’s been a hot couple of days in south Texas, and this weekend has been no exception. When it comes to dressing for hotter days, I try to dress comfortably without sacrificing style. The rise of athleisure wear has made it possible!
To keep it cool on a Sunday, I kept it light with colors and fabric. I started my look with a pair of bleached denim joggers from Forever 21. Yes, I said denim, but the fabric is thin. I paired my joggers with a light tan PacSun scallop tee.
To top off my Sunday athleisure wear look, I added my Yeezy 500 blush sneakers. I was hesitant about copping these new Yeezys, but when they arrived at my door, I fell in love with them. I still need more pieces in my wardrobe to wear them with, but I recommend them!
It’s important to start comfortable during a hot day, but remember, you never have to sacrifice fashion!
It’s been gloomy weather for the past week, but the sun came out on a Sunday and of course, I had to enjoy it with an awesome streetwear inspired outfit and a sometime at the farmer’s market.
While I’ve been stuck wearing mostly sweaters and wool jackets, I decided the sunny day called for a denim jacket. I sported my American Eagle Outfitters denim jacket over my olive long sleeve shirt from Forever 21.
I decided to go with a denim on denim look, but went with a pair of distressed gray jeans from H&M instead of blue jeans. The gray complimented the color of my olive tee, and didn’t clash or compete with my jean jacket. And for walking with comfort I went with my Black and white Old Skool Vans.
My outfit was perfect for a stroll on a sunny day at the Pearl Brewery, which was amazing. While living in San Antonio, I haven’t spent much time at this awesome hub for family, food and fun, so it was a nice change from the usual.
We even grabbed some ramen for lunch. The spicy miso tantan-man ramen from Tenko Ramen didn’t disappoint! I’m definitely getting it again on my next trip to the Pearl.
It was a great way to end the week. I finally got to wear an outfit that didn’t have to consist of a sweater or a wool jacket, and I got to enjoy the sunny day surrounded by nice people enjoying the day too.
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!
When you work a 40 hour work week Monday through Friday, you live for the weekends! Sure, I live for the fun, food and relaxing that comes with the weekend, but I also enjoy getting to dress exactly the way I want: fashionably. Not to say that my work attire is for the birds, but the handbook doesn’t let me wear torn jeans or converse.
With the weather somewhere between cold and warm this past weekend, I layered up my looks without long sleeves. My Saturday attire consisted of a new green pinstripe-stitched t-shirt from Forever 21, with a Zara bomber jacket. For jeans, I kept it light blue with some moto jeans from and finished off my look with my white leather converse and black snapback from H&M.
My bomb fashion was perfect for the shopping, lunching and partying that awaited me on Saturday. What’s does your weekend attire consist of?
