A month ago, I got to see my lord and savior Kim Petras for the second time in my life! The queen was on her Clarity Tour and she just knocked it out of the park with her performance. Mama know how to put on a show and she also knows how to come up with some cute merch!

I literally went crazy at the merch table and spent about $90, but I had to have her merch! One T-shirt in particular caught my eye when I looking up her merch on Twitter: The Kim Petras holding a koala T-shirt. The meme-worthy T-shirt needed to be copped and copped I did.

I usually refrain from wearing white, because I don’t find it flattering on me. But the moment I put on the tee, I loved it! The fabric is soft and the fit wasn’t tight, which I like. I’ve been tucking in my tees lately and this one looks good tucked in. In this look, I paired the tee with some dad fit jeans from Urban Outfitters and some classic Converse.  The look was perfect for a cool, sunny Saturday.

If you’re looking to cop some merch from Kim Petras. I definitely recommend! The quality and creativity is there! Check out her merch store here, if you aren’t seeing her on tour.

A pop of color to your wardrobe

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!

Bomb Fashion for the Weekend

Mens-fashion-for-weekends-1

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.

Mens-fashion-for-weekends-2

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?

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018!

Vans-shoes-Zara-denim-1

Well here we are again, it’s the start of another year! The beginning of the new year can mean a lot of things to different people, for me, 2018 is the start of bettering my body and mind. When I look back on 2017, I can’t complain. It was the year I completed my one year at my first post-grad job, the year I advanced my career with my second post-grad job, the year of fun concerts and the year I rediscovered my passion for blogging.

My 2018 resolutions are to get into better shape, to not take myself too seriously and to continue sharing my passion for fashion with you all! I hope not to slack off, but if I do, I will look back at this post and remind myself to not give up.

For my New Year’s weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to spend it in San Antonio. We already spent time with our families during Christmas break, so New Year’s was for us.

On the last Saturday before the break, we spent some time Brackenridge Park, one of our favorite parks. If it hasn’t already become apparent, I love spending time at my local parks. While, I’m not the biggest outdoor person, I love taking time to visit a park and enjoy nature. Plus, it’s a great place to clear one’s mind and take some photos!

My last outfit of 2017, consisted of new buys that I don’t regret! I was able to cop some grey torn skinny jeans from Zara year-end sale. If you haven’t visited Zara recently, make a trip. They always have great deals at the beginning of the new year. I paired my new jeans with an old distressed blue jean button up from Forever 21, that I layered on top of my black tee from PacSun.

I completed my look with my dark green cap from Aldo and my new hi-top Vans. Ever since I purchased the low-top version of the shoes I’m sporting, I’ve become obsessed with Vans. I mean, I’m obsessed with shoes overall!

As I think back to 2017, I realize how blessed I was. The good and the bad has led to where I’m at this very moment typing this. Here’s to more accomplishments in 2018 and not letting the bad moments get me down!

Cold Temperatures and Velour Hoodies

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!

Florals for Fall

We are a couple days away from fall and you can slowly start to feel the weather getting cooler in south Texas. As the weather starts to change, so does the fashion. My typical fall fashion usually consist of neutral colors, plaid shirts and torn denim. However, there is one trend I’m jumping on and that is florals.

Florals_Zara_4

Florals have become the norm when is comes to spring fashion, but are starting to find themselves in fall fashion, and I am here for it! Last week, I made my monthly stop at Zara for some shopping. I didn’t have anything specific that I was looking for, but then I came upon these torn skinny jeans with roses embroidered on them. At first sight, I fell in love and knew I had to try them on.

They ended up fitting perfectly, so I bought them! I just loved how the embroidered roses and leaves were as detailed as can be, and how it really complimented the torn denim.

Florals_Zara_1

I ended up finding myself wearing my new jeans throughout the entire weekend. These jeans really complimented my style. I enjoy wearing a basic tee, and the embroidered jeans allow my outfit to pop!

For this look, I paired my jeans with a PacSun heathered gray boxed t-shirt and wrapped a Forever 21 plaid shirt around my waist, which gave my look a 90s vibe. For accessories, I added a necklace to help accent my basic tee, and my Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer sunnies to help keep the sun out of my eyes. I finished off the look with my hi-top white leather Converse.

If you’re a guy who isn’t big on florals or embroidery, I suggest that you take a risk. Especially if you are into basic, the floral embroidery will make your outfit a pop, plus you’ll be on trend!

 

 

After Work Attire!

Forever_21_Men_3

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.

Forever_21_Men_4

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.

Forever_21_Men_1

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!

Forever_21_Men_2

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.

 

Outwear for Summer? Groundbreaking.

DKNY_Mens_Jacket_1

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.

DKNY_Mens_Jacket_2

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.

DKNY_Mens_Jacket_3

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?”

DKNY_Mens_Jacket_4

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.

My June Look book

Pac Sun Short Sleeve

Pac Sun Shirt-1

It’s the end of another month, and the beginning of another look book. This past month, I only got to feature two looks compared to my usual three to four looks. I would like to blame that on the craziness that was the beginning of the month. Here’s to getting back on track in July.

Both looks for this month are from my trip to Dallas. To survive the summer heat, I dressed for comfort without losing style. Both my pink and black camp shirts are from PacSun and both my jeans are from Zara. For my first look, I decided to go with my OG Converse hi-tops. For my second look, I featured my new pink asos sneakers.

I enjoyed my time in Dallas, and I’m glad I packed my outfits accordingly! Now that June is over; it’s time to start planning my July looks. Stay tuned!

 

 

Another Guess Original Tee

Guess Fashion

I mentioned in an earlier entry that I was loving the 90s logo tees, a look that is making a revival. I also mentioned that it would be a look that I would continue to rock throughout the spring/summer season. So it’s no surprise that I would feature the logo tee, yet again.

Guess Fashion

A stop at my local PacSun ended in the purchase of another Guess original logo tee from their capsule collection. The retro script logo is the epitome of the 90s, something that obviously caught my attention. I also knew the fact that it was white would make it perfect for the hot days to come.

Guess Fashion

That turned out to be true, because I ended up wearing it on a hot and humid Saturday. I paired my oversized white tee with my matching white converses and balanced out the white with my moto black skinny jeans from Zara, black cap and a denim jacket.

If you haven’t started adding these 90s throwback logo tees to your wardrobe, you better get to it! Find the Guess capsule collection at Guess, PacSun or Urban Outfitters.
