Saucony Shadow Originals

Saucony-shadows-originals-1

It’s no surprise that I am obsessed with shoes. For the last seven years, I’ve collected a variety of dress shoes, casual shoes, boots, etc., and recently my shoe obsession has turned to sneakers.

I’ve purchased a couple of pairs of shoes, and I plan to feature them as they arrive. My first feature are my Saucony Shadow Original shoes.

I was not familiar with the Saucony brand. I’d seen it on a handful of people before and had seen an outlet store before. However the minute I saw these shoes on the Urban Outfitters website, I had to have them!

The shoes are obviously stylish and comfortable too! I’ve worn them with a number of outfits in the short minute I’ve had them, and they go with pretty much anything.

If you’ve fallen for or are curious about the recent dad sneaker craze, I totally recommend these. They are stylish without having all a crazy color way combination. They are a good pair to start with! What do you think about Saucony?

Fashion on a dime

I love a good deal when it comes to clothing and shoes, because I don’t think looking your best needs to cost a fortune. A good find doesn’t need to come from a thrift store or off-price clothing store like some of my recent finds. If you’re patient enough, you can purchase designer and name brand finds for a discounted price at their respective store.

I am a big fan of Zara and for the most part, you will find their clothing at retail price. However, at the end of each season they mark down most of the store to make room for the next season. The end of the season sale is how I bagged myself these grey distressed torn jeans for $25, instead of $49.50.

I also got my New Balance 300 shoes at a bargain. I am pretty sure these shoes retailed around $80, but I ended up getting them for about $30 at Urban Outfitters. I had been eyeing them for a while, and was excited to get them for such a deal!

Some times finding a bargain at a retail store takes times, but it can be a win! If retail bargain hunting or thrifting isn’t your style, you can find some stylish, affordable clothing at Target like my green tee ($12). Where do you shop for fashion on a dime?

Shorts for the Summer

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.

 

 

Sunday Athleisure Wear

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!

Cool watch from Folsom & Co.

I recently received the awesome Jones watch from Folsom & Co. in the mail. I had been searching for a nice stainless steel watch in black that would compliment my mostly dark colored clothing for work. This watch hands down was exactly what I was looking for. The watch looks similar to some pricey watches you find at the mall, but is set at an affordable price! This watch is definitely made for both work attire and streetwear attire. I can’t wait to share some future streetwear looks with the watch. Check out Folsom & Co. for watches and accessories that will help elevate your style!✌🏻

A Weekend in Austin

I’ve been dying for a weekend away from San Antonio and this past weekend I finally did. My boyfriend and I headed to Austin for a one day vacay that consisted of food, drinks, dancing and enjoying everything else Austin has to offer. That included a trip to Hope Outdoor Gallery also known as Graffiti Park, which I was happy about being that they will be demolishing it soon.

We went just a little overboard with the food that weekend. We stopped at our favorite wing spot, Pluckers on Saturday. Boneless wings and fried pickles were on the table for dinner. It was much needed after a week of watching calories and stressing from work. Later that night we enjoyed a night of dancing and drinks at Barbarella.

The following we woke up for breakfast at Austin Diner and ended our Sunday walking down South Congress, which also involved a stop at El Tacorrido for El Equinox, an horchata with a shot of espresso.

Even though it was an overnight trip. It was much needed, and I had a great time!

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!
