Plaid shirts, concert tees for fall

When fall arrives, I bring out the plaid! It’s obviously nothing groundbreaking, but plaid definitely changes up my look. Since the summer months tend to consist of short shorts and tees. A new style choice over the summer was concert tees. I found myself going to many concerts in 2018, and they became a go-to piece to use in the summer. With some styling help from my boyfriend, it looks like concert tees will be part of my fall wardrobe as well!

In this featured look, a J. Crew plaid shirt from the thrift shop meets a Charli XCX tour tee! I wasn’t sure about the combination at first, but they definitely go together in the picture. I went with some distressed skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters to complement my black tee. To help balance, I went with my Yeezy 700 Mauve sneakers, which complemented my plaid shirt. The neon green accents in the sneakers also matched my Charli tee. Finally, to give my outfit that drip (LOL), I added an Adidas belt bag I got at PacSun on clearance for only $8. Definitely a steal! The iridescent of the bag gave my outfit a much needed pop, while also complementing the greens in my outfit.

I can see myself making the plaid/concert tee combination a staple for fall. Has this been a staple in your wardrobe or is this something you might try for fall?

Serving Cool Dad Realness

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?

Feeling myself for Fall

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!

Neon shorts and Yeezy 700 Magent

Yeezy-700-Magnet-1

This past Monday, Yeezy and Adidas dropped the latest Yeezy Boost 700 V1 colorway called “Magnet.” So many thoughts came to mind when this colorway was announced back in July. One of those thoughts was that I was more than likely going to pass on it for the teal blue colorway. However, days ahead of its release, it was announced that it would be a Yeezy Supply exclusive. Basically, the shoe was going to be available on their website and only in the U.S. that exclusivity attracted me more to the shoe. So I obviously ended up buying them.

They are definitely a nice pair of shoes. They have the most combination of colors since the Waverunner, which is a plus. The silhouette is the same as the other 700 V1s. The differences between this colorway and the rest is they used a nylon material for the base of the shoe, while all six previous colorway a had a mesh material base. Also, the shoe has less 3m than the other colorways, but that isn’t really a minus for me.

Yeezy-700-Magnet-3

I picked outfit pieces to compliment my Yeezy Boost 700 Magnet sneakers. I paired my Magnets with long grey socks and some orange neon shorts from Urban Outfitters, which matched the orange accents on the sole of the sneakers. I finished the look with a white vintage T-shirt from DKNY, purchased from a local thrift store.

I love a good dad sneakers and these are a definite cop. What are your thoughts on the Yeezy Boost 700 Magnet?

The Weekend Uniform

It’s been a HOT couple of days in Texas. Like over 100 degrees hot. To get through these hot days on the weekend, shorts have become my best friend. For a big portion of my 27 years on this earth, I haven’t been a big fan of shorts, even on the hottest days. But that has changed, obviously!

Shorts have become my best friend this summer. I’ve invested in my new friendship by purchasing several shorts from Urban Outfitters, like the ones featured in this blog. I fell in love with this UO geo print woven shorts, that I bought them in two colors. I’ll feature the other colorway at a later date. I paired these pink pair with a Chvrches concert tee and matching Yeezy 700 Boost in the inertia colorway. These shorts keep me cool on a hot summer day!

Spring feels

Spring is finally here but that doesn’t mean jackets are over. The temperature can drop in the evenings and a thin lightweight jacket like the one I’m featuring will keep you warm and stylish. I bought my jacket from DKNY two years ago and you can find a similar jacket at Target for a more affordable price than I paid for.

Spring-feels-2

I paired my jacket with a brick colored tee from Forever 21. This tee is spring ready and gives my outfit a pop of color. For pants, I went with some grey plaid joggers from Forever 21. Joggers are around all year long and are a great alternative for pants when it gets hot in the spring months.

Spring-feels-3

For shoes, I went with my New Balance 300 tan leather sneakers from Urban Outfitters. You can find similar shoes on the New Balance website. They are very comfortable and stylish, which makes them great for spring!

Spring-feels-4

I completed my look with a black cap to match the jacket. Spring is a great inbetween when it comes to weather. Most days you’ll wear shorts, but some nights, you can add some outwear to your wardrobe without breaking a sweat.

I can’t wait to share other spring outfits. What are your thoughts on jackets for spring?

Obsessed with the Yeezy 700 Salt

I know am late to the party, but I am officially obsessed with the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 salt. I honestly slept on these shoes, when they went on sale. I regretted it and a few days later, thanks to GOAT, I was able to purchase them.

My first impression out of the box was, “why did I sleep on these?!” Yes, it is muted color way, but it works for me. I usually stay away from all black or white tonal chunky shoes, because they can look like work shoes. However, these don’t.

The salt color way falls somewhere between grey, blue and white. The muted colors makes it  easy to go with almost any outfit. I used it throughout the weekend with different outfits and it worked.

yeezy_boost_700_salt_4

If you missed out on these shoes, I definitely recommend getting them off GOAT or StockX. Another thing that makes these a must cop is the fact the shoes had low stock numbers, which makes them sort of rare. The inertia color way just released and that one has double the stock of the salts.
