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 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.

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!

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.

 

Outwear for Summer? Groundbreaking.

Standard

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.

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.

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?”

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

Standard

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

Standard

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.

’90s Throwback Guess Original Tee

Standard

Guess logo tee

Growing up in the 90s, I recall logo tees and designer jeans being the “in thing”. That trend has been making it’s comeback for the last few years. I see the old logo tees my older brother was rocking in the ’90s all over the place. From Tommy Hilfiger to Guess, you can’t escape it! And after making my most recent purchase, I’ll admit that I don’t want this trend to ever end!

As I was walking at my local mall, I saw this black Guess oversized logo tee that I needed in my life. When I tried it on, I fell in love. The look and fit was perfect!

This past weekend, I had to take my new shirt for a ride, and I had no regrets about making this purchase. I paired my oversized tee with a new pair of Zara torn skinny jeans, my favorite Chucks and my tan suede cap.

If you’re into oversized tee like me, I recommend adding this throwback into your collection. As a ’90s kid, I’m loving this trend, and you can expect to see me rocking it throughout the season.

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!
