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!
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!✌🏻
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!
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.
The holidays are done, and a new year is almost upon us! I hope everyone had a great time with the ones you love. If you’re still on break, lucky you! For my holiday break, I headed to Houston to spend time with my mom and her boyfriend. Over the last year I’ve had more trips to Houston than I ever have, and I’m really falling in love with the city. It’s huge, ethnically diverse and there always seems to be something going on. Also, it doesn’t hurt that it’s the home of The Galleria!
On the day before Christmas, we headed out on the town, so I could see some sites on my short trip. We made a stop downtown at a park in front of city hall. The park was perfectly situated between city hall and a few skyscrapers. I find the Houston skyline to breathtaking, so I took a couple of photos.
On my outing at the park, I took some photos in front of the Reliant Energy Christmas tree and the water fountain in front of city hall. Since, it wasn’t super cold during the day, I stuck to wearing my new distressed black jean jacket from Forever 21. My denim jacket paired along with my yellow plaid shirt also from Forever 21 kept me warm enough throughout my day. I kept with the black denim for my jeans and topped off my look with some luxury á la Saint Laurent boots. I enjoyed my Houston outing with style!
Overall, I really enjoyed my holidays. I got to see my lovely mom, and I got spend time in a city I hope to live in soon. Until the new year!
Last weekend was full of adventure, with a trip with friends to Austin for the Trail of Lights and a night out on Sixth Street that almost led to being kicked out of a bar (bartender’s fault) there wasn’t a dull moment. While the short trip to and from Austin was great, a stroll in the park enjoying a cold, sunny Saturday was a needed highlight.
Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the cold, I do my best to enjoy it. Especially, since I live in south Texas where it’s hot 85 percent of the year. While I tend to stay with darker shades, the sunny day on Saturday called for earthy colors in my wardrobe.
When putting my outfit together, I knew that layers was the way to go. I started with a denim button up and added my mustard colored wool sweater over it, both from DKNY. Since my button up was a lighter denim, I went with a darker denim for my pants.
For footwear, I decided to wear my dark brown Urban Outfitters Chelsea boots, because nothing screams cold weather like a nice pair of boots. To help top off my look, I layered my dark green bomber jacket from Tarjay (Target) to help keep me warm. And keep me warm, the jacket did!
With winter only a few days away, will you still be rocking earthy tones or darker tones?
